Men & Women of all Abilities Welcome
The Baltimore Martial Arts Academy in Catonsville Maryland offers kettlebell training and group kettlebell classes for beginner and advanced students. Our Kettlebell classes are fun and and an excellent way to get in phenomenal shape. A kettlebell is a Russian type of hand weight that is shaped like a big cannonball with a handle. Often made out of pure cast iron, they are available in a wide range of weights and sizes. The kettlebell is like a handheld gym that delivers an unparalleled mix of all-purpose strength and conditioning, melts away body fat, and forges a classic, enviable physique.
Our Kettlebell fitness courses are offered in 30 minute and 1 hour long sessions. Our 30 minute sessions are referred to as our FAST BURN 30 class. Fast Burn 30 was recently featured in a Groupon offer. GROUPON subscribers should refer to our SCHEDULE and choose which FAST BURN 30 class times are best for them. Class sizes are limited and must be scheduled in advance by calling 410-465-7799.
For those students more familiar with kettlebells or for our FAST BURN 30 clients who want to expand upon their training, our one hour long kettlebelle classes may be better for you. Groupon subscribers with punch cards may schedule for these classes as well, however two class units are required per class instead of one.
Unlike traditional weight training programs designed to build bulky muscles, our kettlebell program uses interval based training that reinforces proper body mechanics. This class will improve strength and conditioning for all sports and deliver intense fat burning results.
BMAA Kettlebell classes keep your entire core engaged for maximal functional results as well as rapid weight loss. Because kettlebell motions originate in the hips and strengthen the shoulder capsule, they translate into direct improvements in martial arts and other sports, plus they help protect against sports injury. The program itself goes far beyond what simple cardiovascular exercise can do, by reaching into the anaerobic zone. This type of interval training program yields the fastest weight loss results possible for any exercise program.
Classes are led by CSCS & RKC II & Strong First Level 2 Certified Kettlebell Instructor Danyelle Berger. She keeps classes moving while insuring safe use of this amazing fitness tool. Classes are for men and women. We provide all of the equipment required for class including kettlebells ranging from 14 to 80 pounds.
What Does RKC Mean?
The RKC system remains the undisputed world leader in kettlebell instruction. The prized RKC certificate represents a “Black Belt” in kettlebell instruction that requires extensive pre-training to attain. A grueling, “experience of a lifetime”, the RKC program is the ONLY current program which insists on stringent testing of multiple skills and strengths. Currently only an average of 70% of RKC candidates succeed in passing the requirements by which they can proudly hold themselves forth as “RKC-certified”.

The kettlebell goes way back as it first appeared in a Russian dictionary in 1704 (Cherkikh, 1994). So popular were kettlebells in Tsarist Russia that any strongman or weightlifter was referred to as a girevik, or ‘a kettlebell man’.
Although they are just beginning to come into the spotlight; Kettlebells have been used by bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts for hundreds of years. Kettlebell gyms have spawned all over the country especially in the Metropolitan areas of California and South Florida. They are becoming increasingly popular on the East Coast and our facility is only one of a few in the Baltimore area that offer Group Kettlebell Classes.
Kettlebells gained recognition as a superb weight loss tool when they were featured in the fitness magazine ‘Hercules’ in 1913. In the recent history of the Kettlebell, they have become increasingly popular within the United States thanks to a man named Pavel Tsatsouline. Tsatsouline is a fitness guru who used to be a trainer for not only the United States armed forces but the Soviet Union forces as well. Once the United States noticed that they could not endure as long as their Russian counterparts within competitions, they began incorporating the kettlebell into their training routines. In 1985 a committee for the sport of Kettlebell lifting was created, and the first National Championship for Kettlebells was help in Russia in 1985 with its own set of rules and standards. Today, the Kettlebell is being introduced into the fitness routines of the everyday man, as their benefits have proven them to be one of the most useful tools for building strength.
As the long history of the Kettlebell proves, it has many benefits to offer those who use it on a regular basis. These benefits include:
- Helps Shed Fat

- Increases Muscular Endurance.
- Toning and Strengthening of almost every muscle of the body.
- Develops Mental Fortitude
- Increases flexibility.
- Gives you the freedom to get an intensive workout without a Gym.

The history of the Kettlebell has a long and proven record for its effectiveness. These unique exercise tools have been used by individuals around the world for hundreds of years to build muscle, lose fat, and strengthen their endurance.
