Private Training

We offer a variety of private training sessions to fit your needs and goals:

  • Single sessions ranging from 1 - 3 hours and check-in sessions for kettlebell enthusiasts who want to learn more about the kettlebell or who want to focus on specific movements, but ultimately want to train on their own. Offered in-person or via Zoom. Single sessions start at $100. Include a recap and helpful videos/photos from your session.

  • A combination of in-person private training and programming to do on your own utilizing kettlebells. 

  • Monthly in-person or Zoom sessions (2 - 3x per week) to help you focus on your kettlebell goals.

  • We also offer kettlebell distance coaching (programming with Zoom check-ins every two weeks). Starting at $175.

  • Our private sessions may include a combination of kettlebell movements and bodyweight movements.

  • Private sessions are 45 minutes and include a warm-up. They may be held at our studio or at Francis Park if weather allows. 

All of our private training is centered around the main kettlebell movements. If you'd like more info on private training or to set up a Zoom consultation, email 

We also offer private sessions for coaches:

  • Coaches who do not have a kettlebell certification, but would like to learn the best ways to cue and coach their own clients.

  • Coaches or anyone working towards the SFG certification.
