The functional movements at FIT36® studios are incorporated to build strength AND burn calories. The two goals are not mutually exclusive. They are equally important to help each of our members achieve a greater state of fitness and health. Our HIIT workout burns major calories, while also creating an afterburn that can allow your body to continue burning calories for hours after the workout.
Our workouts are fast, intense and effective. We incorporate body-weight movements, free weights, bosu balls, med balls and TRX®, among others. Along with those, we strongly believe in the power of the kettlebell.
You won’t enter a FIT36® studio without seeing plenty of kettlebells. We utilize kettlebells to build arm, leg and core strength and understand the versatility of the kettlebell and the versatility all our studios’ equipment brings to our functional training.
Some common kettlebell movements you might perform at a FIT36® studio include:
- Kettlebell Alternating Swing – Kettlebell (KB) in one hand, drop into slight squat, swing KB up while driving up through squat and pushing hips forward. Switch hands at top of swing and repeat.
- Kettlebell Figure 8 - Hold KB in front of body with both hands and long arms, perform figure 8 motion while keeping arms straight.
- Kettlebell Single Arm with Squat + Rotation – Hold KB at shoulder height, drop into squat, while pushing up and through squat, press KB above head and rotate body towards opposite shoulder.
- Kettlebell Alternating Lunge with KB Pass Through - With KB in one hand step out into lunge, at bottom of lunge pass the KB under the forward leg to opposite hand, come back to top and repeat on opposite side.
