June 2015 Las Vegas Kettlebell News, Sheri Kaminski, NSCA-CPT/SFG (702) 327-6146 ptsheri@gmail.com  www.lasvegaskettlebell.com


I am trying a new approach to newsletters. I am using my Word Press blog. This way you can “subscribe” if you want to keep getting news and information from me, and “unsubscribe” if you really want to.  This should result in less in box clutter for everyone.  

I am no longer training regularly at Strength Center in Henderson, I am focusing more on my studio in the north west part of the valley, and in-home Students. Adam and the crew at SC are fabulous.  I miss them and will offer workshops there from time to time.

I currently have room for 6-8 new Students in my Unlimited Monthly Small Group Training Program at my Small Studio at Ann & 95.  So, if you have been thinking about learning to get stronger, and enjoy all the benifits of strength, call or text now ! (702) 327-6146.  “There is not much that strong won’t fix”~Mark Reifkind

Unlimited Monthly Students pay $100 per month (no contract). This includes the initial assessment and orientation and up to two private sessions, to get the minimum basic swing form, (Drop ins are $25 each. Kettlebell experience and RSVP are necessary).  I am open to adding class times and “Open Gym” times as needed. My current Small Group Training schedule is as follows:

  • Monday 6:00AM      5:30PM
  • Wednesday 6:00AM    9:00AM      5:30AM
  • Friday.   6:00AM.   9:00AM    5:30PM
  • Tuesday/Thursday “Open Gym Practice” by RSVP via text (702) 327-6146
  • Studio closed July 4-11, and August 31-September 9.

Private Session Training is available by appointment.  Private sessions at my Studio start at $50.  In-Home Sessions start at $80. On-line Training starts at $25 per month.  Workshops vary in price and location, but start at $35 at my Studio.  I accept cash, checks, and cards as payment.  Tips, and the occasional bribe, are most happily accepted. 

I also teach the 5 Tibetan Rites of Rejuvination on the first Sunday, (except July and September), of each month at the Sophia Center for Goddess Studies at Spring Mtn and Jones.  This two-hour workshop is $20 cash at the door. The 5 yogic movements have been practiced by Tibetan Lamas for thousands of years, and have been called “A Fountain of Youth”. They build strength and vitality when regularly practiced. The workshop is always open to men and women, of all fitness levels!  I teach the five movements and regressions for each one, so that even those who may be unable to comfortably get up and down from the floor may learn and practice from standing and a chair.

I offer a Referral Program as well. If you refer someone, and they buy training. You get an instant credit of half of what they spend with me on their initial visit towards your next month’s training.

From a Strength Coach over 50 

Well, I have been over fifty for a little while now. I can say for certain that I am so grateful for my continued good health, and the health of my family.  I am grateful that I read an article in 2008 that prompted me to follow the teaching Pavel Tsatsouline with kettlebells.  The strength I have learned has “fixed” my body. I am stronger at 51 than at any time in my life, and I am helping my students learn to get strong too.

Many of my strength students are “seniors”.  I guess that title comes at some magic age number like 65 or something, and I have the honor of witnessing them get stronger, stand straighter, move better, and feel better every day, the really cool thing is you can learn to get stronger at any age.  

Learning to be strong may sound impossible, you may think that strength is something that some people have and some just don’t. You may even be under the understandable, but incorrect notion that you may be too old to get stronger. Strength is a skill. All skills can be taught.  If you are capable of learning to play a new card game, you are capable of learning strength.  If you can sit on the toilet, and get up unassisted, you can learn to dead lift and swing a kettlebell.  

Many of the “symptoms” of aging are quite literally reversible with strength training. Being able to get up and down from the floor with ease can change a person’s quality of life for the much better. High blood pressure  and Type 2 Diabetes can be reversed to the point where people can reduce, or actually get off their prescribed medications. Weight bearing exercise is proven to increase bone density. Strength makes a person resilient to injury, and Kettlebell training improves cardiovascular endurance and flexibility as well!

So, if you have been thinking of starting some kind of exercise program, find a Strong First Instructor in your area. Start now because getting old is not for sissies!
