Dear Friends, 

We hope that your Summer 2018 has been wonderful! We know that this is a popular time for beach trips and family vacations, so be sure to let us know when you will be away so we can provide you with a travel-friendly exercise program to stay active and on track with your health and fitness goals outside of the studio. Have any friends or family that are looking to begin their fitness journey? Help your friends while helping yourself! Refer them to us and get up to a full month of personal training for FREE.

Voting for Best of Bethesda's 2019 magazine is here and voting ends September 14! If FitnessWise has made a positive impact on your health and fitness, we ask that you help us win "Best Fitness Studio." This choice is located in the Health, Beauty, & Fitness section. Please enter "FitnessWise" as your vote in the text field.

There is also a Personal Trainer category this year.  While we recognize that many of you work with other members of the FitnessWise Team, we ask that you enter "Okinyi Ayungo" for the Best Personal Trainer category.  That way, we pool our votes instead of diluting them. So tell all of your friends and family via email, text, phone, and word of mouth to vote for FitnessWise. THANK YOU to those of you that have already voted. Everyone at FitnessWise appreciates your help and continued confidence in us!

Kettlebell:
A 'kettlebell' or girya (Russ.) is a traditional Russian cast iron weight that looks like a cannonball with a handle. Kettlebells have been around for hundreds of years and have helped improve the lives of everyone from patients recovering from injury to the men and women that use their bodies to defend freedom and liberty (e.g. Israeli Special Forces, Force Recon Marines, U.S. Secret Service, etc.) Kettlebell training uses one weight to develop total body strength, power, endurance, stability, posture, and overall fitness. This class includes mobility exercises, strength training and cardiovascular conditioning. Learn how to lift, press, row, get up, and move better.

Due to space limitations, we are capping the class at (8) participants. To facilitate this change we ask that if you would like to attend a class, you sign-up online. You can attempt to drop-in during class time the morning of, but if 8 people have already signed-up for the class, you will NOT be able to participate.
