"Simply put, Rhonda and Dave are awesome. I’ve spent many years in and out of fitness facilities, as a “gym-rat” and I can honestly say I’ve never benefitted more from any other gym. Rhonda and Dave at Pacific Coast Kettlebells will inspire, challenge, educate and motivate you in addition to getting you into the best shape of your life."
"I’ve tried going to different gyms for years and that did nothing to help me feel better because it was boring and I was not motivated to push myself. I was not looking to be a bodybuilder; I just wanted to be able to walk upright in 10 years!"
My kettlebell journey started 3 years ago. I was intrigued by a kettlebell class I saw at a local gym and decided to try out a class. That was the day my life changed for the better (many thanks to Rhonda). 2 years prior, I was 235 lbs, out of shape, depressed and probably hung-over. I decided to quit drinking for a year, started working out and soon after my life began to improve. It wasn't until I started training with kettlebells consistently that I decided to make fitness, strength and health a career. I have been very fortunate to have influential mentors in Rhonda Fuller, Franz Snideman and Max Shank and they inspired me to pursue my RKC in 2011. I want to share my passion for fitness and strength with my students and I hope to become a positive influence in their lives.
Rhonda Fuller has been involved in the fitness and wellness industry for over 28 years. Her interests in fitness began early as she excelled in competitive bodybuilding. After successfully competing at a National and International Level, she became interested in a deeper understanding of how the human being excels, what it takes to be truly healthy and whole inside and out. This quest took Rhonda to IPSB College in San Diego where she became a Holistic Healthcare Practitioner and Massage Therapist. Rhonda transformed herself during this quest as she applied the resonating knowledge to her own life. She broadened her mind by seeking more education in the field of healing, nutrition, spiritual and mental health by attending the CHEK Institute, where she completed the CHEK 3 Holistic Lifestyle Coach certification. In the Summer of 2005 Rhonda was introduced to Russian kettlebell training and soon afterwards became an RKC instructor and eventually a Level II RKC. The idea of using Russian Kettlebells as a strength tool complemented the approach she developed in her own life. Rhonda's desire for knowledge opened an awareness that each of us can embrace the body, the mind and the soul and become healthy and strong, both inside and out. This is where a unique approach to guiding transformation in others began to originate. Rhonda feels that it is about addressing the whole being all the parts and pieces of ones self. It is the only route in reaching the ultimate in human potential.

Kettlebell Bootcamp - All levels - Circuit Based Class
The Kettle Bell bootcamp is structured in a circuit style format. This class combines traditional kettlebell strength training with high intensity interval training in order to provide the metabolic conditioning required to shred fat and build endurance while getting a full body workout. The class will start with a functional body weight warm up followed by some med/light kettlebell swings to get the blood flowing. After the warm-up the fun begins… participants will move from one timed exercise to another with short rest in between. Some of the movements featured in this class will include the battle ropes, kettlebell swings, TRX, pull-ups, kettlebell presses, tire flips and sledge slams. It’s not only a great way to get in shape, but also a very healthy and productive way to relieve stress. Look for the elusive squatch to make a cameo in these classes as it’s his favorite way to squatch out after a long day dodging lookie-lous in the forest. Hit a personal record and you too will recognized for achieving squatchmode! There are no ranks or scores like cross-fit; we encourage you to compete with yourself to become the best version of YOU in a supportive group training environment.

The Kettle bell Elite class is designed for the advanced kettlebell athlete. This class will combine complex kettlebell movements where you quickly transition from one exercise to another.

Prior to taking this class the athlete must be proficient in one/two arm kettlebell swings, cleans, presses, snatches, strict form unassisted pull-ups, Turkish getups and barbell deadlifts. The class will finish with a timed workout that will challenge you to push your personal limits. Don’t look now… but there is a squatch right next to you sweating, grunting and growling his way through this intense workout. You WILL achieve squatchmode in this class…. The squatches philosophy is the more the merrier. Bring you’re A-game we keep score in this class by the amount of sweat you leave behind.
