Before kettlebells were invented, early American settlers lifted piping-hot kettles to get in shape, causing a hot-water shortage and fueling the colonists' decision to throw useless teabags into Boston Harbor. Declare independence from your love handles with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a five-class punch card to KettleBell BootKamp at True Health Studio (a $65 value) in Aurora.
Russian Kettlebell–certified instructor Steve Bradford of True Health Studio helps clients sculpt slim, strong physiques in heart-pounding KettleBell BootKamp classes. During the one-hour sessions, exercisers use kettlebells to whip the entire body into shape, improving strength, flexibility, endurance, and the ability to perform vital every day tasks such as bench-pressing FedEx deliveries and outrunning energy-drink-fueled cheetahs. Small class sizes of 10 or fewer ensure students receive plenty of one-on-one attention and allow Bradford to track individual progress. True Health Studio offers multiple fat-igniting sessions six days a week; check out the schedule for a full listing of class times. All kettlebell wielders exercise barefoot, rendering typical gym footwear such as sneakers and sandals made out of sweatbands unnecessary.
