“The kettlebell is the most versatile training tool there is—a gym in your hand. Science and experience agree that kettlebell training develops a wide range of attributes: slow and dynamic strength, various types of endurance, muscle hypertrophy, fat loss, health, etc.” – StrongFirst
Industrial Strength’s coaching staff is the most tenured and experienced in the Portland area when it comes to kettlebell training. With every instructor on staff being certified through StrongFirst, (the gold standard in kettlebell instruction), you are guaranteed to be in good hands.
In addition to being a great stand-alone exercise program, kettlebell training is undoubtedly some of the best cross-training you can do for many sports. If you are a climber, runner, cyclist, grappler or martial artist, or you participate in any other wide range of sports or outdoor activities, kettlebell training is just the thing to help take your performance to the next level.
A top priority for every coaching staff should be to set its trainees up for success starting from day one. With that in mind, Industrial Strength has a required on-boarding process before beginning kettlebell classes – this ensures both your safety, as well as Industrial’s ability to run the classes in a way that will deliver the results everyone is looking for. The process looks like this:
1. Get clearance on baseline pain free movement and certain hip and shoulder mobility minimums. If your clinician at Evolution is familiar with the FMS (Functional Movement Screen) they can do this for you, otherwise we will do it in your first private lesson. If the initial assessment finds any restrictions, Industrial Strength will work with you and/or your clinician to get you moving better and without pain so that you can start classes ASAP.
2. Go through a brief series of 1-on-1 sessions to get you ready for classes. In these sessions you will learn fundamental kettlebell exercises (swings, get ups, squats, etc.) as well as the right weights for you to use once you get into class. The best way to get started is via a REQUIRED 3 pack of of 1-on-1 sessions at a big discount compared to normal rates – just $150 for the initial three lessons (Portland area residents only, limit one per person).
