Whenever I talk to someone about Iron Republic, I usually get asked the same two questions:
“What is a Kettlebell?” and “Are you guys like Crossfit?”
A Kettlebell is one of the many fitness tools we use to help people burn a ton of calories, get stronger, increase their cardio, improve their posture, and have fun all at the same time! ! We don’t offer Kettlebell only classes at Iron Republic because we believe in well-rounded fitness routines that are not only physically challenging, but mentally engaging as well! We also use lots of other really cool and effective tools like sandbags, battling ropes, medicine balls, and even your own bodyweight
The other really awesome thing about the types of fitness tools we use at Iron Republic is that each exercise can be tailored to every individual’s current fitness and skill level. So you can be working out along with everyone else, but at whatever level is right for you!
That leads me to the next question I’m always asked, “Are you guys like Crossfit?” In some ways yes, in others, definitely not. Like Crossfit, we believe in a fun, supportive, and community driven atmosphere. The group workouts are planned ahead of time and last no longer than 50 minutes. That means you are in and out of Iron Republic in under an hour (unless you want to stay and chat with other members of the Iron Republic family, which happens often!) and you can leave feeling confident that you got in all the work necessary to work towards your goals.
The main difference between Crossfit and us is that we have a non-competitive environment. What that means is there is no racing a clock or another member. You compete more with yourself then with any other person.
We are definitely there to keep you encouraged, motivated, and safe, but you go at your pace and don’t have to worry rushing through exercises and potentially increasing the risk of injury. Each class is overseen by a highly qualified Coach, which makes sure you’re safe and doing each exercise correctly. We always say that people come to us to feel better, move better, and look better. We have found that these three outcomes are better achieved when someone is not under the stress of competing with another person.
