Shake up your fitness with kettlebell classes

If you are ready to mix up your exercise routine, or begin anew, you will definitely want to consider kettlebell fitness classes with Janet Duback, a Hardstyle Kettlebell Certified (HKC) instructor, offered through West Linn Parks and Recreation.

Unlike traditional weight lifting, kettlebell exercises mimic real world activities and work several muscles at once. Kettlebell fitness classes combine cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training, allowing you to increase flexibility, endurance and strengthen several muscle groups, including your core, abs, back and glutes.

To prevent injury, new students are required to attend a 90-minute kettlebell orientation workshop. You will learn the fundamental exercises and develop safe and effective execution.

As a HKC kettlebell coach, Duback specializes in assessment of dysfunctional movement. She is nationally certified for FMS (functional movement screening) and is a Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) running coach. She is highly motivated to support her students in reaching their individual fitness goals.

Late spring and summer program details are listed below. Register online at westlinnoregon.gov/parksrec.
