Category: Group Kettlebell Classes


Joe (Carranza), Rick (Carranza) and I have had many conversations about the amount of fitness periodicals and emails using kettlebells as props.  Fitness Magazine, Shape Magazine, Oxygen are just a few of the magazines which have caught our attention.

In many cases they are not used in the rest of the article or any other way in what is written.  In other circumstances the kettlebell was not even held properly or SAFELY. 

Is it just that people don’t know how to use them properly, how versatile they are, or why they have been around for hundreds of years?!!

If editors, writers, and in some cases even “celebrity” fitness professionals are going to bother to use them, find out what makes them so portable and versatile.  The information is out there and you need to know where to look.

Cultivated Strength is leading the way with expert, research backed information, on the use and safety of kettlebell training.  Contact us and find out.  Complimentary demos are always available.

Wednesday August 7, 2013- New Kettlebell Instructor takes the Plunge

With Rick on a well deserved vacation, his regular classes are cancelled the week of August 6, 2013.

Nora Quinlan, who completed the kettlebell foundations certification on Sunday July 28, 2013, and I (Ellen Khazzam)  decided to train with anyone who came to the regular Wednesday class time of 10:30).  It ended up being the 2 of us training with Nora leading the workout.  With the consistent training Rick has provided, I was able to give Nora a few simple cues and she flowed right through the training.  It was a fun workout and proved what Rick always says during class- “I want to teach you the correct techniques so you are able to train with a kettlebell safely on your own and for the rest of your life”. 

thanks Rick for your guidance!!!!

Kettlebell Class added at Sitan Muay Thai Studio

Rick has started a new kettlebell class at Sitan in East Meadow.  The owners were looking to add kettlebell training to supplement the training done by their students.  They know the benefit of training with kettlebells and knew Rick understood the Muay Thai training system.

Joint Mobility is a key training technique to enhance their training.  Once again this shows how joint mobility is key to all styles of training as well as the average athlete, elite athlete and all populations.

Their are 2 classes running, Tuesday 8:15pm and Friday 8:15pm.  The training includes kettlebells, joint mobility, and clubbells are added on occasion. 

You don’t have to be a student of the school to attend the classes. 

All classes are listed on our calendar.
