BRING ON THE BELLS…

ARTICLE: Why Kettlebells Are King for Burning Calories

“An ACE study found that eight weeks of kettlebell training two times a week improved aerobic capacity by almost 14 percent and abdominal strength by 70 percent in the participants.”

Do YOU want to build strength, increase endurance, improve mobility and stability and educate yourself for long-term sustainable training, PLUS burn calories?

Beware of huge fitness classes throwing everything at you in less than 30mins without thorough coaching and instruction just for the BURN... There is a better way to reach your goals. We’ve got you covered at EDK with certified coaches to help you get there.

Spotlight STUDENT TESTIMONIAL

Best_Fitness_Studio_Minneapolis

I tried Ericka’s kettlebell class on a whim several years ago, and have been hooked ever since. Ericka’s creative training plans make every class exciting and challenging. Her attention to each individuals’ needs never wavers: just this morning Ericka helped me fine tune my goblet squat and I was able to find strength and ability I didn’t know I had. Ericka provides support, challenge, respect and a terrific sense of humor (oh and the best music!) – a combo that makes it easy to wake up at the crack of dawn several times a week to get my kettlebell fix!

I compete in canine agility, and the work I do in my EDK Training classes has translated to faster sprints, more endurance and improved footwork on course. Heartfelt thanks to Ericka for all of your hard work and support! I am so fortunate to be able to train with you and my fellow EDK friends.
