Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon:: for $25, you get six drop-in kettlebell classes at Evolution Fitness (a $120 value).
Evolution Fitness owner Danny Sawaya and his team of RKC-certified instructors help clients to build strength, burn calories, and increase flexibility through the precise execution of Russian kettlebell techniques. Kettlebells⎯cast-iron spheres with u-shaped handles⎯allow for muscle-pumping strength training with minimal stress to human architecture and its trademark flying buttresses. Evolution Fitness's bell-hoisting experts introduce students to foundation exercises and fundamental movements, such as drags, dead lifts, and swings, modifying intensities to suit all skill levels. Introductory classes, which usually take place at 5 p.m. on Tuesdays or 8 a.m. on Saturdays, acquaint bells with bell-schleppers via 1950s sock hop and establish essential movement patterns. Thus grounded in the basics, students can then attend five additional small-group sessions at any of the studio’s scheduled times. Check out the gym’s video gallery for a view of what to expect during classes and an extensive library of Petticoat Junction clips.
