I have tried nearly every workout possible, but kettlebell training is my absolute favorite. And these guys are great. As I get older, I need to weight training, but I need it to be safe. The trainers here are all about good form and staying safe. The classes are filled with regular people just looking to get stronger and healthier. Terrific program.
Words can not describe the hospitality, knowledge, and dedication of John and Jason. My first day I felt more than welcomed by them and every body that was participating. Every body was extremely friendly, introduced themselves, and was willing to help me when I needed it. It was a pretty diverse group so I didn't feel as if I stuck out like a sore thumb. There was all age groups of people from their 20s to their 60s that we're giving it their all. The class wasn't too big (just the right size) so John and Jason were still able to help me with my form and proper execution of the workouts. John and Jason's workouts are challenging, but to be honest, it was probably the best work out I've ever had in my life. Using the kettle bells the way how they instruct really give you a TOTAL body work out (even those tiny muscles that you didn't even know that you had!). After hopping from gym to gym, class to class (including cross fit), kettle corps definitely goes in my book as one of my favorite gyms and it will definitely not be my last visit! John and Jason know the ins and outs when it comes to what they do, and you can tell that this is their passion. They eat, sleep, and breathe kettle bells. The gym is extremely neat, clean, and has everything in order. They have kettle bells of all sizes and weights so you are guaranteed to find your desired weight. They have tons of foam rollers and yoga mats, which is extremely beneficial and feels great! They are funny, very motivating, and are genuinely nice down to Earth guys.
I just spent a week training with Jason while visiting from out of town. I was a total kettlebell newbie, and Jason made me very well supported getting started.
Jason is a really caring personal trainer -- which I felt personally and observed when I saw him working with other customers of the gym. He'll always give you a personalized "hello" and "goodbye," and he'll also always give you a great full body workout. He knows everyone's state of fitness and fitness goals and customizes the workouts to meet those needs.
The gym has a really nice community feel and a great schedule. It is still growing and right now is Atlanta's best kept gym secret -- I ended up with a couple of sessions where I was the only student and got a completely personal session.
Even though I can't be a long term member of the gym, Jason gave me a ton of attention and lots of great skills to take home with me. I'll be sure to work out here next time I am in town.
Other cool things:
1. There is a free class on Saturdays for new folks
2. Cosmic Kettlebell Class (think Cosmic Bowling meets Kettlebell class)
3. Jason played a few seasons in the NFL!
4. Jason was born and raised in Marietta - it is a local and family business. His brother John helps run the place, and his other siblings are often around, too.
5. You get to train with totally beefy football players (and regular non-football people, too).
6. My 62 year old mom came with me one day, and she liked it, too!
7. It's fun!
I’ve been to 4 classes so far and I am very impressed! The kettle bell workouts are definitely challenging, but super fun! The hour class goes by fast because there’s great energy from the instructors and they are encouraging and warm. This exercise is very safe because the instructors always pay attention and make sure you are in the proper form. I also love that there’s a nice mix of strength and cardio. I always feel sore the day after going to a class, but it’s so worth it! This place is a gem!
Well, I've just finished my free introductory session with John at Kettle Corps, and I have to say it was GREAT. John took me through the workout paying attention to my technique and form, and fine tuning as the class progressed. I came to Kettle Corps because I really liked their set-up, the space, and their mission statement which really spoke to me. After a great class, I decided to sign up there and then as their schedule works well for me. During the sign up process, I had to opportunity to chat with John, and we discussed how Kettle Corps could help me achieve my goals and set new goals to strive for. I feel so energised after my workout, I"m really looking forward to my next class. Finally, Kettle Corps is very competitively priced, has an ideal space to work in, and I hope their business continues to grow. I know I will be recommending them to my friends and colleagues. I'm totally inspired by the experience. Thank you John and thank you Kettle Corps.
I came in to try out the first free class and had a great experience. The instructer gave lots of feedback and gave me a thorough introduction to the Kettle Corp style. It’s an effective workout from knowledge instructors- and it’s a local business, not a big box chain. I had a super work out, give this place a try!
