All levels of fitness are welcome, including individuals who have never exercised before. Everyone in the class works at their own pace with a weight that is appropriate for their current fitness level. Correct form and exercise execution is emphasized in every class. You will notice an improvement in your muscle tone and strength after the very first week.
Prior to joining a class, everyone has the benefit of attending a one-on-one Introductory Class Training Session. During the session, proper kettlebell form is reviewed as well as the proper execution of several kettlebell exercises that are frequently performed in class. You will also do a short circuit so you will know exactly what to expect once you are in a class setting. This session provides you with an opportunity to try various weights to determine your best starting weight and become familiar with the kettlebell exercises and class format without worrying about trying to keep up with a class. Once you have done the Introductory Class Training Session, you are ready to join any of the classes. The cost of this introductory session is $25.

No you do not. You may choose to attend one or two classes per week if you wish.
As with any exercise, there is a risk of injury; however, at The Kettlebell Club, there is a strong emphasis on correct form and proper exercise execution. When an exercise is performed correctly with an appropriate weight, the muscles are worked correctly, and thus, they become stronger. If correct form is not emphasized and/or an individual is using a weight that is too heavy and does not allow them to maintain correct form, then the risk of injury greatly increases.
