  • Do I need to be in good shape to start kettlebells? What if I’m not in shape?

    When you join our kettlebell classes, you become a part of something much greater than just a workout program. You become part of an incredibly supportive and encouraging community. We've helped literally thousands of people of all shapes and sizes get into the best shapes of their lives. Our system is progressive and will work for anyone who commits to it. You'll never be expected to do more than what you're currently capable of, and unlike most other group fitness classes, you'll never feel embarrassed or left behind.

  • Do I need any prior kettlebell experience?

    Nope! Our kettlebell classes are completely progressive and suitable for both beginners and experts. This means we teach you exactly everything you need to know for a safe and effective workout. We take great pride in being a “movement first” based system — our first priority is safety and to help you develop perfect form. Most people who start our classes have never even touched a kettlebell, but quickly fall in love with it!

  • Why should I choose Dragon Gym’s Kettlebell program?

    Our kettlebell classes are designed with our students’ goals in mind. With our program, you can experience many benefits, including:

    • Increased functional strength
    • Improved cardiovascular fitness
    • Maximization of power and explosiveness
    • Improved flexibility and mobility
    • Body composition changes
    • Healthy, sustainable weight and fat loss, as well as muscle gain

    And what’s more, prepare for your physical improvement to feed into your intellectual and emotional improvement. You'll notice a difference in your stress management, daily outlook, goal setting, and much more.

  • It seems as though everyone who trains in kickboxing is really young. Am I too old?

    No way! Our classes have a range of age groups. We teach teenagers, students in their 60s, and everyone in between. We can do this only because our program is technique and curriculum-based, enabling us to tailor drills and workouts to your individual needs.

  • How many women train at Dragon Gym?

    Actually, a lot! Our classes have just about a 50-50 male to female student ratio.

  • Will you help me with my nutritional habits?

    Absolutely. Nutrition is a vital component for weight loss, and we'll pass along the powerful knowledge we've put together over the years. By the way, our nutrition programs are all about naturally improving your diet—not forcing foods on you that you don't like or starving yourself.

  • I see that you have some awesome events coming up. Can I tag along?

    Of course you can. The majority of our events are open to our current and prospective students. It’s important to us that you get to know us—all of us!—better! If you have questions about a specific event, please let us know.

  • I have a past injury/medical condition. Do I need to inform my instructor?

    Yes please! Informing your instructors allows them to make sure your training is optimized for health and safety. And we are always more than happy to help show you variations in exercises, or things you can do at home to help with your injury/medical condition.

  • What should I do if I have any further questions?

    No matter the question, we are always happy to help—you can ask questions of any of our staff members.

    Give us a call at (610) 363-7575 or you can email us at [email protected]


  • I don’t know anyone—what should I do?

    Our students are one big, crazy family. And we are always more than excited to add new people to our crew! If you come in and it’s your first class, don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to anyone you see—whether we’re behind the front desk or out on the mats. And if you’re in search of a training buddy, be sure to let us know. We’re pretty good at training buddy matchmaking.
