Sporting the rare designation as a Russian Kettlebell Challenge–certified instructor, Buckeye Kettlebells’ lead trainer, Dave Clancy, and his team focus on the same movement pattern improvements used to train more than 25 Division I collegiate athletes. Core- and back-strengthening classes progress through Hard Style body-weight drills—such as pull-ups, burpees, and squats—following a complete movement analysis that identifies a fit seeker’s weak movement patterns and tendency to only turn left.
Early morning sessions run 30–40 minutes, and evening sessions of swings, cleans, and snatches extend up to an hour for a strengthening regimen similar to that of a professional fighter. In addition to traditional kettlebell formats, new Kettlebell Express sessions help new students to learn techniques and help rappers to hoist solid-gold suitcases.
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. He shares that spirit with a crew of 12 Strong First Certified Kettlebell Trainers, one of the largest such teams in the country. They lead their 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. Clancy is also a certified strength and conditioning specialist, who uses that knowledge to motivate clients to build muscle, flexibility, and range of motion.
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.
