Capital District Kettlebell Club at Dynamic Fitness & Nutrition
Mastering advanced kettlebell exercises requires dedication and commitment to a training program that deserves to be recognized. The Capital District Kettlebell Club was created to encourage clients to train with kettlebells on a consistent basis during and away from their training sessions at DF&N. Our Dragon Door Certified Kettlebell Instructors teach proper and safe kettlebell training techniques to increase strength, endurance, explosive power, and mobility.
Clients who participate in DF&N kettlebell programs will be given the opportunity to qualify as a member of the Capital District Kettlebell Club. This title will showcase their consistent practice and thorough understanding of fundamental and advanced kettlebell lifts. A timed test will challenge the client's strength and endurance and display their understanding of proper kettlebell training techniques. Once a client becomes a member of the CDKC they are required to re-qualify every six months to provide a benchmark for their continued progress and to ensure prolonged commitment to their training program.
Like most kettlebell certification programs, the CDKC will offer qualifications at beginner and advanced levels and testing requirements will be determined using body weight and age classes.
The Dragon Door Russian Kettlebell Challenge (RKC™) is one of the most prestigious certifications a kettlebell instructor can receive. Requiring months of training to prepare for the grueling 24 hour workshop participants are pushed to their physical limits while being tested on various kettlebell exercises including the 100 snatch test. All instructors who offer kettlebell training at DF&N must be certified by Dragon Door, the industry's leader in kettlebell certifications.
DF&N is proud to serve as a host facility for Dragon Door kettlebell certifications, and we are looking forward to hosting the Russian Kettlebell Certification (RKC™) in April 2018. Visit the Dragon Door website for more information and to register for an upcoming workshop.
The CDKC was founded by Gina Pizzino-Varrone, owner of DF&N and upstate New York's only Certified Level II RKC™.
"I have been working out with Gina since 2010 and hope to continue indefinitely. Working with her has increased my physical strength, endurance and confidence. Gina is truly an excellent Trainer, and I have worked with many others prior to her. She is the perfect combination of tough and warm/caring. She works with the whole person, mentally, emotionally and physically. Because of her efforts I am much stronger and more flexible, I have better balance and most importantly, working out is fun along with being challenging. I enthusiastically recommend her. Gina is also a smart, capable business woman, and her gym is impeccable. I have never met a more passionate Trainer with so much knowledge not only in fitness but also health and nutrition. She is the whole package and then some!"
