Buckeye Kettlebells’ owner and chief trainer, Dave Clancy, believes that training is about pushing his clients past their perceived physical limits, showing them what they're truly capable of. In one sense, Clancy teaches fitness. Drawing from his dual certifications as a Russian Kettlebell Challenge level-two instructor and certified strength and conditioning specialist, he motivates clients to build muscle, flexibility, and range of motion. He leads his charges in a host of kettlebell classes, in which they heave the spherical burdens toward total-body fitness in addition to facing off against their body weight in exercises including pull-ups, push-ups, and squats.
In another sense, however, Clancy teaches the power of believing in yourself. He inspires patrons to tap into hidden stores of self-confidence to overcome physical and accompanying mental challenges—a skill that is useful in all of life's arenas, especially the local coliseum.
