Imagine a black bowling ball with a suitcase handle on it. A Kettlebell is a big hunk of iron that comes in several sizes, from 8 lbs to 97 lbs and more. The unique value of kettlebells is derived from ballistic work such as snatches, swings, cleans and jerks. In addition, to giving you incredible muscular endurance when done in high repetitions, with a proper nutrition plan, any excess fat that you have will melt off rapidly. Many exercises will develop rock hard mid-section and increase shoulder flexibility and stability. As a result many chiropractors are using Kettlebells with their patients for rehab as well as top athletes, fighters and people who just want to get in shape. In addition, top trainers and strength coaches use Kettlebells for their athletes. The KB will force you to use more stabilizer muscles and work the targeted muscles through a longer range of motion. For a man or woman, Kettlebell training will help you accomplish your goal of being fit, strong and lean.


TRX was developed by a Navy Seal so he could train on the road. TRX is suspension training – a new category of exercise for athletes of all abilities, that leverages one’s own body weight and gravity to develop strength, balance and flexibility. TRX Suspension training allows you to instantly adjust not only the level of difficulty for each exercise, but easily customize any workout very quickly. Both the Kettlebells and TRX allow you to switch from exercise to exercise in less than 20 seconds.


Students will train kicks punches, elbows and knees in this calorie burning program that has proven very effective outside the ring and has been used in many self – defense systems. Thai training methods develop devastating power, speed and superb cardio-vascular endurance as well as fighting spirit. Muay Thai training is also quite safe thanks to pad training that evolved to keep fighters healthy between fights. Using pads, focus mitts and no-nonsense training methods, kicks, punches, knees and elbows are practiced full power and without holding back.
