Why We Do What We Do

By | News & Events, Pacific Strength | No Comments

Kettlebells. Strength. Cardio. Running. Yoga. Barre. Spin. Barbells. Pilates. What do you do to round out your routine? Last post was about why you do what you do. And this one will talk about why we do what we do here at NBKB.   Why do we use kettlebells?

We fell in love with this kick-butt workout and wanted to learn more, so we got certified in 2009.   Why are classes 45-minutes? Gabby & I both came…

By | News & Events, Pacific Strength | No Comments

Have you thought about your fitness routine? Ok, if you work out, you’ve probably thought about what class you’re going to next or when you’re going to get your next run in. But have you REALLY thought about WHY you’re going to that class or on that run? Does it fit into your schedule? Are you really good at that particular form of exercise? Did someone tell you to do it? I think about this a lot, especially when planning workouts and programs, but I came across a Facebook post the other day that really made me think more and get a…

Student Spotlight – Susan Kerth

By | News & Events, Pacific Strength | No Comments

This month, we decided to interview our dear friend and student, Susan. We love having her at North Beach Kettlebell because she’s always comes in with a smile on her face. Plus, she’s consistent, hard working, and pushes herself and her fellow classmates. She really kicked butt in this last challenge we did and so we asked her a couple of questions about her training so she could share her story with you.   North Beach Kettlebell: Do you mind telling us your age and a little bit about your fitness history? What other forms of exercise have you tried or do…

Whether you’re carrying groceries, golfing or throwing a ball, your body produces rotation – the rip trainer integrates this and many other everyday movements into training. By connecting the lower and upper body through the core with each rip trainer exercise, the…

Thank you to all who have brought in shoes for our Giving Tree. For those of you who’d like to participate, you still have time! Please grab a tag from the tree, shop for, and bring in the new athletic shoes by December 19th. Another cool way to get your family involved is to ask your kids to come shopping with you.
