Aaron Larmore is a very knowledgeable and professional individual when it comes to working with the individuals that take his classes or the athletes that attend his camps. I have attended some of Aarons kettlebell classes and have been extremely surprised and pleased with how difficult the training can be with the correct instruction. Aaron is very creative and energetic when leading his classes and keeps the people motivated and interested during the classes. He is the one who introduced me to kettlebells and convinced me that kettlebells are a useful tool that can be used with anyone from individuals wanting to get in better everyday shape, and high class athletes looking to improve strength and power. I now own two of my own kettlebells and use them often because of Aaron and his introduction he gave me to the world of kettlebells. I highly recommend him and his coaching and training abilities!
Aaron has taught me how to use the Russian Kettle Bells on a multitude of levels. He has demonstrated how they can be used as a precursor to facilitate the difficult movements implemented in power lifting, how they can be used with the general population regarding strength training, that they are a fun alternative to traditional weight lifting, and how they can be used in my own work out regiment to shock my muscles and avoid complacency that can come with traditional work outs. The Kettle Bells allow me to train large muscle groups rather than isolating one or two muscle groups for a total body work out that calls upon both my cardiovascular and strength endurance. The knowledge that he has given me has greatly changed the way in which I approach exercise prescription and planning even in my own workouts.
Aaron is an awesome guy that's always there to help. Incredibly knowledgable and driven to constantly improve and expand that knowledge. His clients love him and for good reason. He's very good at what he does. His kettlebell workouts get results, simple as that. His repertoire of kettlebells and biomechanics his second to none in the Southeast Iowa Area. I would refer him to anyone that wants to get stronger, move better, and live a healthier more fulfilled life.
Aaron earned his RKC, and as some standout candidates are, he was recalled for duty as an Assistant Instructor at the April 2007 RKC in St. Paul. During these 3 days Aaron displayed an uncommon degree of discipline while disposing of the trainees like a coroner with spent latex gloves. He layeth smack down on all 8 subjects in our group even before I gave the order, and he could not get enough. When the General called me in to prep the massive attack on the entire class, Aaron took charge of my post and did an outstanding job in the process. This young man is fully capable of taking the safety and welfare of any student into his good care, and delivering a solid product on the other side of the training.
I suffered a back injury. I am a late-40-something and was keeping weight off by running, but did no strength training. In my job, I mostly stand by a counter or sit in a chair. I thought I was in OK shape (because of running), and then I lifted something I shouldn't have. After months of back and leg spasms, climbing stairs was difficult, running was impossible. My family doctor referred me to a neurosurgeon for a blasted disk, but I really wanted a better alternative than back surgery. So I decided to look for a trainer, and Aaron's bio included rehab on sports injuries; I immediately signed up for a few sessions. Aaron explained possible causes of the injury and developed a treatment plan of progressively more intense stretching exercises and core fitness workouts with kettlebells. Aaron fully explained each movement with the bells and how to increase repetitions and weights progressively to increase my strength without further injury. I cancelled my doctor's appointments. After a year, I continue with classes and also have my own set of bells at home. Aaron's classes help to keep motivated and add new excercises, and he continually suggests changes in improper or potentially harmful techniques. I have been pain-free for many months now and really consider myself to be in the best shape since college (probably better).
Aaron Larmore is more than an RKC. He is a coach. He understands when to motivate, teach, and inspire and implement them appropriately into his training. Aaron has mentored with some of the best strength programs in the country: Husker Power, Univ of Iowa, and the International Youth Conditioning Association to name a few. My final point is this: I would trust my mom with Aaron. That says it all. Do yourself a favor and seek Aaron Larmore for training.
I was introduced to kettlebells by my husband. I had an interest in learning to use them but was a little intimidated. After joining Aaron's class last summer I am TOTALLY addicted! He was patient and encouraging while I learned and then pushed me to reach my physical goals. It was the hardest thing I have ever done but I had a great sense of accomplishment after each workout. Feeling energized, lean and ready to take on anything! Kettlebells is definitely my workout of choice and I have them at home for my daily workouts, but I will sign up for every opportunity to take a class with Aaron!
AARON'S KETTELBELL WORKOUT IS CHALLENGING AND UNIQUE. IT'S A COMBINATION OF STRENGTH TRAINING AND CARDIO,FOCUSING ON CORE STRENGTH. THE 45 MINUTE WORKOUT IS TIME EFFIENCIENT, VARIED, AND CHALLENGING. AARON PUSHES YOU TO THE MAX BUT NEVER ASKS MORE OF YOU THAN YOU CAN DO. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING OUT WITH WEIGHTS AND CARDIO OUR ENTIRE LIVES AND THIS IS THE BEST WORKOUT WE HAVE EXPERIENCED SO FAR. IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT.
Aaron's his kettlebell workout is challenging, fun, and effective. Everyone, from accomplished athletes to regular folks like me, will get excellent workouts from his program. Kettlebell exercises provide a great full-body workout at any fitness-level. I am not very coordinated or athletic, and I really don't enjoy weight-training at all, but over the last year and a half, Aaron's kettlebell program has helped me tone and increase overall fitness--and I had fun doing it! This is due to the effectiveness of the kettlebell program but mostly because of Aaron's tremendous motivational skills. He tailors the workouts to my fitness needs and pushes me to challenge myself and my fitness, and his encouraging attitude keeps me coming back and working harder. And the results speak for themselves: I've lost almost 15 inches!
If you want a work out that will challenge you to take it to the next level this is a great work out for you. I have been doing kettle balls for 6 months now and i can tell that with in that time i am in the best shape i have been in, in a long time. The fact is Aaron knows what kind of workout to give you great results. he is a great guy and have fun doing the kettle ball class or any thing he may teach you. Every penney that you spin is worth it. with his programs he can help you to be in the best shape and by able to put on a good amount of muscle. i will always be addicted to kettle balls and i have Aaron to thank for that. you put in the time to this work-out and you can have great results.
