Kettlebells for a Cause
Your participation in this workshop supports a great cause! A portion of all workshop sales will be donated to local animal rescue organizations.
I learned more than I thought I would. It was very educational in form, tips for my clients and even for my own workouts! The format was great, very relaxed and you can tell you are very knowledgeable. I appreciate you sharing all of that wealth of information. The hands on training works great for me, and it makes it fun!
It was a great workshop! I appreciate hands on since so many classes are now online. I feel much more confident working these movements with clients and for myself. Thank you!
I really enjoyed the workshop. Learning how to do the getup was nice, because I’ve never actually learned the proper form. Also, no lower back pain when doing kettlebell swings is nice!
The KB swing step by step directions were very good. I will use that. Also liked the KB clean, because I hadn’t been using that with clients.
Learned so many new cues for my clients. I am excited to practice on my own and then in turn begin coaching my clients with better cueing and technique. You were incredibly knowledgeable and approachable…felt comfortable asking you questions to which you gave great answers!
I left Renah’s KB workshop feeling much more confident in my coaching skills! In a comfortable, helpful, and easy to absorb fashion, she improved my swing technique and provided me with the knowledge to translate it to clients as a coach. Now I can demo with proper form, give a variety of helpful cues, and assess form more confidently.
I have completed four weeks of kettlebell training with Renah and I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience. Although I have worked in the fitness industry for many years, I was blown away by all the techniques I learned, that I had not known before. Renah’s in person instructions and individualized critiques made it fun and easy to learn. It is very difficult to find a StrongFirst level 2 instructor in this area and because of this I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Renah.
Renah is a remarkable instructor. As someone who is pursuing a Level 1 StrongFirst certification, she really helped me pinpoint my weaknesses and what I can do to improve them. I would highly recommend!
About the Instructor
I’m Renah Jones! When I started Dragonfly Fitness ten years ago, I saw a need for a training option that gave women the opportunity to try new things and push themselves in a welcoming and comfortable environment. I noticed that unfortunately many women don’t ever get started working out for various reasons — because they feel they’re not in good enough shape, or they don’t know where to start. This is partly the fault of the fitness industry, and I am here to help change that!
Over the past ten years I have created a space where all women interested in strength training are welcome, regardless of age or ability. A space where women who may have once been intimidated or afraid of lifting a barbell, deadlifting a heavy weight, or hanging from the bar are now celebrating these accomplishments! A space where women come to learn, grow, and give it their all — without worrying what others think.
Through this workshop I am able to open up this space to all women, not just members of Dragonfly! Confidence is contagious and I know that you are going to leave this special day physically and mentally stronger - ready to conquer your goals!
