bleeding hearts classes
We have a variety of classes—ranging from 30 to 60 minutes—to meet everyone’s schedule. See our class descriptions and find the perfect fit to help you meet your fitness goals.
INTRO TO THE KETTLEBELL SWING
This free, 30 minute class focuses on the kettlebell swing, our most fundamental exercise. You will learn how to perform the hardstyle kettlebell swing correctly so that you can jump into any of our other classes safely and confidently. This class is required before taking any other BHKC classes.
In this class , we focus on the major kettlebell lifts: the swing, the squat, the deadlift, the press, the snatch, and the Turkish get-up. The emphasis will be on perfect reps, not speed, but as with any kettlebell work, there will be a cardio element.
In this class, we place the emphasis on using kettlebells and other plyometric tools to increase speed, agility, and quickness. It is a high energy and high intensity class guaranteed to make you harder, better, faster, stronger.
Each 30 minute skills clinic will focus on a single kettlebell exercise, movement of skill, like the clean, snatch, swing or Turkish get-up. These clinics focus on form and technique and are taught by StrongFirst certified trainers.

BODYWEIGHT STRENGTH AND MOBILITY
For half of this class we focus on the major bodyweight exercises like push-ups, pull-ups, single leg squat variations, hanging leg raises, and other calisthenics. The other half of the class emphasizes dynamic mobility through animal movements, yoga flows, and joint mobilization.
SIMPLE AND SINISTER
If you could only do two exercises for the rest of your life, they should be the kettlebell swing and the Turkish get-up. These classes will focus on the technique and skill of these two critical movements within a very simple, yet sinister, workout.
This class is a shorter, 30 minute version of the Kettlebell Strength or Kettlebell Speed classes. If you need to squeeze in a workout during a busy day, or just want to ease in to the full hour long classes, this is for you.
BHKC yoga classes are taught in the "vinyasa" style, linking one pose to the next. The pace is moderate but challenging, with a focus on controlled, deliberate movement. This approach builds isometric strength, increases joint mobility, and sharpens the mindfulness necessary for balance. Rather than simply "stretching", the goal of the flexibility work here is to increase range-of-motion.
Kids ages 4-12.
In this kids class, we focus on the fundamentals of movement to create 30 minutes of full body strength, mobility, and core in a fun and team filled environment. Leave your little ones in better shape than when you left them and get your child started in their love for fitness.
