Kettle Corps’ uniquely restorative programming is the creation of former college and pro football standout, Jason Hall. During his playing days, Jason suffered numerous injuries that eventually cost him his career. By way of Jason’s extensive strength and conditioning background, he became incredibly knowledgeable, of the human body’s mechanics.
However, it was not until his career progressed to the highest levels that these holistic methods of training were incorporated as a regular part of his workout programming. It was during these years that Jason procured much of his knowledge base of how these restorative modalities can not only be used for healing, but also for performance and function.
Jason has worked with a number of top fitness professionals from around the globe; as a culmination of those elite training experiences, he created Kettle Corps. It’s a fusion of kettlebell training, bodyweight calisthenics, yoga, pilates, and primal movements. Kettle Corps serves to address chronic and acute imbalances in the body’s musculoskeletal system while maximizing functional performance. It’s these imbalances that lead to injury either through misalignment, overuse, or trauma. No matter what, it’s important to strengthen these areas that have become weakened and vulnerable to injury. Kettle Corps was designed to be your base fitness program, which means, it’s a comprehensive practice that will HELP YOU ACHIEVE ALL OF YOUR FITNESS GOALS!!!
Our community at Kettle Corps is a growing community of passionate individuals, who understand the benefits of subscribing to a uniquely restorative, full-body kettlebell based fitness program. The reason we use kettlebells as the focus of our program is simply because they are The Best All-Around Fitness Tools In Existence! We use them in a variety of capacities to further our member’s development of what we call “The 3 Fundamental Fitness Skills”; Stability, Mobility, and Strength. It’s important to understand that ALL functions of performance come from some combinations of 1 or more of these skills being executed. This is technique-based skills training!
Our mission is to unite people in search of their most efficient movement possible via kettlebells. We understand that everyone’s fitness wants and needs can vary. Our members may be young/old, in-shape/out-of-shape, some injured/some healthy, we ALL have the same basic fitness needs. So, no matter what YOUR goals may be, our Kettle Corps program is the most complete and safest way to help you reach them! Greatness cannot be achieved with short cuts, but only through gradual progression, state-of-the-art techniques, and a complete training system that can guide you step by step. Kettle Corps combines Stability, Mobility, and Strength for the complete fitness solution!
Our emphasis is placed on flexibility and injury prevention, which will ultimately keep you doing your fitness routine longer and more efficiently without setbacks. We all know how important it is to work on performance exercises, but without the necessary flexibility to repeatedly work in those explosive movement patterns, your body’s ability to perform at a high level diminishes quickly. It’s commonly not known that 95% of all non-contact injuries to joints are repetitive use injuries due to lack of Stability, Mobility, and Strength. Our restorative kettlebell program at Kettle Corps will give you a much-improved body that will undeniably make you feel better than ever!
A philosophy is defined as a system of beliefs or values. Kettle Corps’ Philosophy is carefully crafted to embody what we must believe, in order to fulfill our purpose, which is to help people build better bodies for a better life.
Everyone comes to Kettle Corps at a different point in their fitness journey. That’s why this training program is designed to be adaptable to all levels of fitness. You can be overweight, injured, feeling old, feeling sluggish, and feeling weak, but don’t dare let that stop you from getting started. You don’t have to be a workout warrior before you join the corps! All you need to be a warrior is the commitment to yourself, the commitment to constant improvement, and the commitment your goals.
The Kettle Corps training philosophy is centered on the understanding that developing a body from the inside out starts with the right mindset (Inside). You must first adjust your beliefs, then adjust your behaviors (out) to see results. A healthy belief that your body deserves the best fuel leads to the healthy behavior of pursuing healthy nutrition. It then continues with a well-balanced fitness program that challenges your mental toughness first (inside) then, through constant progression, your physical toughness. Kettle Corps workouts also develop your body’s muscles stabilizers (inside), which support the function of all major muscle groups and joints (out).
Our MOST important resource is our human resource. The number one reason people come back to Kettle Corp is the members, the friends, the atmosphere, and the people who it’s made up of. WHO you train with matters just as much as what you train with. Kettle Corps isn’t just a workout, it becomes a major part of your life! When you come to the gym, train like someone is watching you and gaining confidence because you keep coming, because you keep working, because you won’t quit. So, treat your CORPS family as your own because being a part of The Corps is a privilege.
It’s not enough to just do it, we must do it right. This means halfway done reps won’t get you there, poor form won’t get you there, and mindless motion won’t get you there. To get where you want to be physically, you must train on purpose. The Kettle Corps program utilizes something called, Technical Progression Training (TPT) which simply means you can ONLY progress by using proper form.
You’re either getting better or you’re getting worse, but you NEVER stay the same! Healthy is just like being the Greatest, it’s NOT something you arrive at, it’s something you become. We truly believe that if you are living a life a constant progression, there is no room for regression. When you follow the Kettle Corps program exactly as it’s designed, you will not only meet but you will exceed ALL your fitness and health goals.
Don’t talk the talk until you can the walk! Kettle Corps workouts are much harder than they look! So, prove yourself through the progression. As you achieve more and more along your fitness journey, you will earn a different sense of self-confidence and self-worth. Approach each workout with the level of respect and focus it deserves and in time you and everyone that sees you will have plenty to talk about!
