Sunday May 25th 6 trainers (including one who is 7 months pregnant), invested the time and energy to learn kettlebell foundations with Rick and the Cultivated Strength team.

Pioneer Fit is opening in the previous location of AKC in Seaford NY.  Knowing the safest technique, knowledge, and follow up support is what Cultivated Strength and Carranza Kettlebell provides guided their decision to train with Rick.

Cultivated Strength Kettlebell Instructor Trains During Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer

One of our kettlebell Instructors, Judy Israel, recently completed 5 months of chemotherapy for breast cancer.  During this time she trained with kettlebells and further realized the value of using this  piece of equipment.  She was able to use the kettlebell anytime anywhere and keep her muscles toned and her joints working. More importantly empowering her to realize she could take control of her body and still train throughout.

Judy has trained with me for over 8 years and consistently utilized the benefits of the kettlebell.

We will keep you posted on Judy’s journey as she recovers from surgery.
