Have you heard of, or used, a 'kettlebell'? Originating in Russia as 'girya,' these handled cast metal weights are the centerpiece for Perry O'Hearn's latest fitness venture. You may know Perry as the owner of Philly Phitness, a personal training studio founded in 2012, which focuses on ‘total transformation’ to help each client achieve their personal best in all walks of life. Since opening, they have worked with nearly 1,000 people and have conducted over 35,000 personal training sessions.
join us the second Monday of every month, May-August, for a series of workouts starting from the West Philly Philadelphia Runner (3621 Walnut St.) at 6:30PM.

Get outside with us and enjoy 25% off at hgUPenn (3731 Walnut St.) afterward!
