“Using kettlebells properly will change your life in ways you can’t imagine yet. Using kettlebells improperly will change your life in ways that suck.”
~ Josh Hanagarne (World’s Strongest Librarian)
Kettlebell training is likely to be the most effective and time-efficient form of training you’ve ever done. And we want you to not only avoid the (very real, potential) pitfalls implied by the quote above but also to get the most out of your training as quickly as possible.
So with that in mind, getting starting with us is quite simple…
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 262-528-6878 to schedule your one-time, introductory kettlebell technique session.
Be awesome (well, maybe that’s actually “Step 1″ since you were interested in learning more in the first place)!
We typically schedule introductory sessions on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. If either of those days works in your schedule, just call or email us to let us know what day you’d prefer, and we’ll get your session scheduled. If neither day works, we’ll do our best to find another time to get you started… So if you email us, please let us know when you’re typically available!
The style of kettlebell training that we practice at TNT is different than just about any other form of training that you’ve probably done before. Even if you’ve used kettlebells elsewhere, you almost certainly didn’t get the full benefit that they have to offer unless your trainer or coach was certified through one of a couple certifying organizations (preferably StrongFirst [SFG]).
The introductory technique session is meant to be a “get your feet wet” session in which we’ll teach you the basics of kettlebell training (if you have little or no experience) or make some technique tweaks (if you have some prior kettlebell training experience) so that you can experience the fastest results in the least amount of time. We will continue to refine your technique during regular classes as well, so it’s perfectly fine — and somewhat common — if you still feel uncomfortable with the basic movements after this class.
Either way, at the end of the session we’ll answer any questions you have about the gym as well as discuss introductory offers, ongoing membership options, and expectations (ours and yours) for future group classes or private training.
We’ve seen some decent kettlebell technique from individuals who have trained on their own or with a trainer who did not hold any kettlebell-training credentials… However, we’ve also seen some rather ineffective & potentially dangerous technique from other similar individuals (including trainers themselves).
Accordingly, only those individuals who have previously trained with an RKC- or SFG-certified instructor are exempt from attending this introductory session.
If you qualify for an exemption, give us a call so that we can schedule a time for you to fill out our new member paperwork (typical gym stuff) before your first regular class.
