Doctor of Chiropractic Tony Chappie is the perfect motivator for exercisers, as he’s been an athlete his entire life. He devoted 25 years to rugby, but when one too many injuries made traditional training impossible, he turned to kettlebells. As a chiropractor and owner of his own practice, he understands the rehabilitative effects of the bulbous weights and incorporates them into classes at his gym, Pittsburgh Kettlebell & Performance.
He defies the traditional gym formula of deploying exercisers onto rows of boredom-inducing machines, instead filling the fitness studio with Russian kettlebells, battle ropes, medicine balls, and sledgehammers. The unusual tools tone bodies at classes ranging from explosive kettlebell training to a Navy SEAL course—taught by retired SEAL Daniel Toth—that is more grueling than teaching a seal to stand at attention.
