Absolutely not! We make the workouts are good for anyone because:
Yes, it is. It’s also a different experience and, sad but true, not always a positive one. Many people leave the big box gyms feeling worse then when they first get there…
We offer a different experience, one the big box gyms can’t offer:
All you need to do is show up and we’ll teach you how to use them. Our Kickstarter program takes care of that. It’s 4 semi-private sessions focusing on teaching you proper technique and form. Once you're done, you will feel confident joining the regular classes.
Chances are, you’ll learn to love the kettlebell. It’s such a simple yet effective tool you can use in so many ways. What you'll really love is what your body will be able to do after training with them!
Nope. We use similar tools – except for the Olympic lifts– but our system is different. We focus on form, not speed. We also don’t compete with each other or for time. Victories in the gym are personal ones, not over others.
Absolutely! That’s because you start with the basics. All those cool moves are built on a foundation of strength you can only get from the basics. Our coaches, Ryan and Sarah, can do some cool things, but only because they worked on the basics. Once you have the basics down, they can also take you to the next step!
They can help you on your own Calisthenics journey. The added bonus…it’s so much fun! Even the basics feel like play!
There’s a secret about those cool, sexy moves people post videos about you probably don't know. What those people haven't shown is all the hours they put in mastering the basics to get to that sexy cool moves.
Yup…but so are dumbbells, barbells and any weight you lift improperly! Heck, poor posture and tight hips that come from sitting too much are also ‘bad for your back!’
That’s why you start with the Kickstarter course. We teach you how to lift and use kettlebells properly so your safety is never an issue. When you use kettlebells the right way, they will actually improve your posture, strengthen your back and build a strong butt, which is so important for stable hips.
I hear you! Commercial big box gyms can be horrible places filled with judgmental, unfriendly people, complicated (and not really useful) machinery, and a creepy vibe.
Ritual is different because:
There’s a whole world of fitness and exercise the mainstream media hasn’t talked about. The one they have is indeed boring – bodybuilding exercises and cardio and two hours at a big box gym? No thanks!
The truth is, exercise comes in many forms. We love kettlebells and calisthenics because we want your life to get easier for you. Call it exercise for the real world.
You’ll love our workouts because they have a ton of variety and you’ll have fun doing them. Our madness does have a method, too. There are certain movements we include in our workouts so you always get a full-body workout. Chances are you’ll do stuff you never did before…and enjoy it!
Here’s the easy part – all you need to do is show up. We take care of the rest! No planning or guesswork requires, and you’ll get what you need by spending an hour with us!
