Beginner/intermediate kettlebell class starts Nov. 6

Thursday, October 30, 2008

The next kettlebell class starts Thursday, November 6. (Didn't want to start it on election night!) This class will continue to be great for beginners. The workouts can easily be tailored on the fly for people who are experienced and fit.

More than one person has told me they've lost weight during this class by also eating a healthy diet. And just about everybody has had fun and pushed themselves. In each class, we warm up, learn a few skills and do a group workout. Get in touch and join in--you'll be glad you did.

Class schedule:
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:00-8:00 PM
Start date: Thursday, November 6
End date: Thursday, Dec. 18 (12 sessions; no class on Thanksgiving)
Price: $145
Location: CrossFit Seattle in Fremont
Easy parking!
