Our Approach

We practice coaching quality movement, which means that our initial focus is not how quickly you run a mile or how many pushups you can do, but simply how well you move. After all, it doesn’t pay to be strong and fast but constantly stiff, achy, and sore. We want you to be able to do the things you love, whether it’s swinging kettlebells, running a marathon, or just keeping up with your grandkids.

We promise you one thing: We will never have you to do a bicep curl (especially in the squat rack). The best physical training is that which directly benefits our day to day lives.  An emphasis on natural movements will ensure that our time together is both fun and practical. You may be the next Mr. Universe, but if you can’t run to catch the bus, carry your groceries, or pick yourself up off the floor, then you aren’t fit.

We see the body as a whole, not the lump sum. Our bodies are wonderfully complex, but it is often hard to understand how to best take care of them. Together we will discuss how simple changes to your lifestyle, through exercise, diet, mobility, and stretching can have huge benefits on how good your body feels.  There is no need to count calories or feel guilty over the occasional splurge.  Life (and especially food) should be enjoyable, not a chore. And most of all – you should NEVER feel guilty.

Your initial consultation sets the stage for our training. Together we will discuss your personal health and fitness goals; from losing weight and adding muscle, to strengthening bones and increasing mobility. This time is primarily about starting an ongoing conversation; the coach-coachee relationship is crucial to any successful program. We will also determine baseline movement quality with the Functional Movement Screen, which helps prioritize movement in your body (just make sure to dress comfortably! See our FAQ). This assessment is specific to you. There is no right or wrong; it just helps us to establish a measurable baseline for you. As for the training sessions themselves: they are as unique as you are. No cookie-cutter programs here! However, emphasis is always placed on safety first!

If all goes well, and most of the time it does, we will begin learning basic kettlebell skills. The skills are based on the patterns we assess during the FMS. We combine the entire process at the end of our session to implement a plan for you based on your assessment, your goals, and your ability to execute the newly learned kettlebell skills. We want you to be able to train with us and we want to make sure we can make that happen in the safest manner possible.

We define what we do as: Moving Better and Getting Stronger. We believe the key to a healthier you should not be complicated.

Our Testimonials

Don’t just let us talk about ourselves,
read what other people are saying about us!

If you took any Psych classes in college, you will know that there are two basic forms of motivation – internal and external. The internal motivation comes from within. It is setting your own goals, working towards those goals and making those goals some type of priority in your life. You have to ask yourself the question, “How badly do I want it?” The second type of motivation is external – motivation that comes from the outside. Enter Queen City Kettlebell. The motivation I receive not only from the trainers, but also from my fellow classmates is top notch. I realize that most of my issues are mental and feeling that I don’t measure up to the others in class. Every class I go to I gain a little more confidence in myself due to the motivation of the trainers and other clients. Thanks QCKB!!

Queen City Kettlebell is a second home to many people, including me. If you are searching for a community of friends or/and a team environment where you still have plenty of opportunities to work on your own, you’ll find that at QCKB. Personally, I was looking for a conditioning and strength workout in one, and didnt have the knowledge, and sometimes the motivation, to do both on my own. QCKB gives me both, and so much more than I ever imagined. I used to go on vacation and look forward to having an excuse not to workout, and now I honestly miss it, and don’t like missing class! Plus, QCKB has armed me with the knowledge and toolkit to workout on my own, anywhere, anytime. Dj is incredibly knowledgeable and manages to give everyone one-on-one attention in a class environment. He will also do wonders for not only your strength and conditioning, but also your confidence and mobility. And, it’s not just kettlebell workouts – it’s so much more, so it’s always changing and you never know what to expect. Thanks to everyone at QCKB for making the last year so fabulous; looking forward to many more!

Kate R. | Facebook

From my first conversation with DJ I felt like QCKB would be a good place to check out so I scheduled my assessment session with him and Jason, one of the trainers. I appreciated their attention to alignment and form right from the start. I have now worked out with Jason for 4 sessions, he is very professional, extremely knowledgeable and understands my goals. After the first few sessions I knew this is the type of training I have been looking for for some time. The way I used to lift no longer was working not seeing any positive results after time spent at the gym. I knew there had were form flaws with my lifting – be quiet Jason – and need to fix some things, ok a lot of things actually. While being new to kettle bell training the functional aspect of this form of exercise is perfect for attaining a better level of overall fitness and getting stronger. QCKB is a great place to workout.

Peter D. | Website

I came to Queen City KettleBell in August of 2015 and have loved every minute of training. When I first started at QCKB I went through a FMS with DJ and then together we came up with a training plan. I have learned so much, but more importantly, I am stronger and fitter than at anytime in my life (I am 60). I highly recommend DJ to anyone looking to get stronger and gain greater mobility.

DJ, I’m reading Dan John’s book “Can You Go?”. It has really made me appreciate the professional that you are and I’m so glad I found your gym. I’m working hard here in Michigan ( when I’m not playing golf ). Looking forward to classes when I get back. All the best.

189.6…this is my weight as of this morning. I went to the Dr. back in April and was saddened to find out that I weighed 222 lbs and would have to increase the dosage on my blood pressure medication. I’m only 34 and I’ve always been thin so this was scary and depressing to me. Now almost 6 months later with the encouragement of friends, family, and the assistance of my trainer DJ at Queen City KettleBell, I’m down over 32 lbs and off all blood pressure medications. Today is a very happy day.

For the past 5 years I’ve never been able to swing a kettlebell because I couldn’t ever use my hamstrings instead of my lower back…Woke up this morning and my hamstrings are sore, and my lower back feels AWESOME!! Be advised: (You) and Dj are now my new BEST friends for introducing me to all this. That is all.

Best cross training workouts ever! I have been a runner for years and not found a cross-training schedule I can follow for long, I get bored. Kettlebell is fantastic, and the people at QCKB are the best, staff and clients both! In my first 10 classes I have lost 6 inches overall, and I can’t wait to see what happens after the next 10. I know this will improve my marathon time, too. Thanks!

I had a personal trainer for a year & half before coming to QCKB. I never had the results with him that I did in just a short couple of months as I did when I came here. Hands down the most amazing workouts ever! DJ is Great – professional, friendly, knowledgeable, motivating & encouraging! I highly recommend trying kettlebells here. I promise once you do, you’ll be hooked! Thanks QCKB, & DJ for everything you’ve helped me accomplish this year!

This was exactly what I’d been looking for in Cincinnati. I have been really interested in kettle bell training for building core strength. I got a killer deal on a Dragon Kettlebell about a year ago and have done very little with it. I have watched some DVDs, but didn’t really feel comfortable swinging a 35# kettlebell until I got some real instruction. Thanks to DJ at Queen City Kettlebell, I am finally able to get the necessary instruction. They were both profession and very helpful. I look forward to my remaining classes and will probably even keep going after they run out even though I have my own bell. It’s impossible to replace a live instructor with a DVD and having them and other people around always seems to help motivate and encourage regular workout schedule. At least I can PRACTICE my swings at home! Thanks again Queen City Kettlebell!

This is an excellent gym for kettlebell training and all-around fitness training. The owners and trainers, are knowledgeable and conscientious instructors. They will push you. They will expect you to put in your maximum effort. But the effort pays off. If you want to learn to use kettlebells the right way, this is the place to go in Cincinnati.

Anonymous | Yelp

If you are one of those people that like to walk around saying, “I’m a glutton for punishment”, than come try this gym out. The classes are small and the trainers are very attentive to everyone’s needs so when you leave this place you will know to swing a bell correctly. My personal favorite is their Metabolic Blitz; which is a boot camp style class. From what I can tell, this class is always changing, never the same. I always walk-in never knowing what type of drills or how many of them I am expected to do that day. So yes, this class is very effective in working your entire body. Bottom line, if you are looking for a new way to workout that will challenge you mentally and physically, this might be the place for you.

For the past 5 years I’ve never been able to swing a kettlebell because I couldn’t ever use my hamstrings instead of my lower back…Woke up this morning and my hamstrings are sore, and my lower back feels AWESOME!! Be advised: (You) and Dj are now my new BEST friends for introducing me to all this. That is all.

Queen City Kettlebell is a second home to many people, including me. If you are searching for a community of friends or/and a team environment where you still have plenty of opportunities to work on your own, you’ll find that at QCKB. Personally, I was looking for a conditioning and strength workout in one, and didnt have the knowledge, and sometimes the motivation, to do both on my own. QCKB gives me both, and so much more than I ever imagined. I used to go on vacation and look forward to having an excuse not to workout, and now I honestly miss it, and don’t like missing class! Plus, QCKB has armed me with the knowledge and toolkit to workout on my own, anywhere, anytime. Dj is incredibly knowledgeable and manages to give everyone one-on-one attention in a class environment. He will also do wonders for not only your strength and conditioning, but also your confidence and mobility. And, it’s not just kettlebell workouts – it’s so much more, so it’s always changing and you never know what to expect. Thanks to everyone at QCKB for making the last year so fabulous; looking forward to many more!

Queen City Kettlebell is amazing. I love the small class sizes and the supportive trainers. The workouts are challenging and really fun! I would recommend Queen City Kettlebell to anyone looking to try something different.

Best cross training workouts ever! I have been a runner for years and not found a cross-training schedule I can follow for long, I get bored. Kettlebell is fantastic, and the people at QCKB are the best, staff and clients both! In my first 10 classes I have lost 6 inches overall, and I can’t wait to see what happens after the next 10. I know this will improve my marathon time, too. Thanks!

I had a personal trainer for a year & half before coming to QCKB. I never had the results with him that I did in just a short couple of months as I did when I came here. Hands down the most amazing workouts ever! DJ is Great – professional, friendly, knowledgeable, motivating & encouraging! I highly recommend trying kettlebells here. I promise once you do, you’ll be hooked! Thanks QCKB, & DJ for everything you’ve helped me accomplish this year!

This was exactly what I’d been looking for in Cincinnati. I have been really interested in kettle bell training for building core strength. I got a killer deal on a Dragon Kettlebell about a year ago and have done very little with it. I have watched some DVDs, but didn’t really feel comfortable swinging a 35# kettlebell until I got some real instruction. Thanks to DJ at Queen City Kettlebell, I am finally able to get the necessary instruction. They were both profession and very helpful. I look forward to my remaining classes and will probably even keep going after they run out even though I have my own bell. It’s impossible to replace a live instructor with a DVD and having them and other people around always seems to help motivate and encourage regular workout schedule. At least I can PRACTICE my swings at home! Thanks again Queen City Kettlebell!

(QCKB) staff were great instructors who could easily shift between newbies and more advanced individuals. Also good facility!

Been to one personal training session and one group class. I have 9 more punch card sessions and I cannot wait to go back. QCKB really knows how to make you sweat and get in a great workout!

This is an excellent gym for kettlebell training and all-around fitness training. The owners and trainers, are knowledgeable and conscientious instructors. They will push you. They will expect you to put in your maximum effort. But the effort pays off. If you want to learn to use kettlebells the right way, this is the place to go in Cincinnati.

If you are one of those people that like to walk around saying, “I’m a glutton for punishment”, than come try this gym out. The classes are small and the trainers are very attentive to everyone’s needs so when you leave this place you will know to swing a bell correctly. My personal favorite is their Metabolic Blitz; which is a boot camp style class. From what I can tell, this class is always changing, never the same. I always walk-in never knowing what type of drills or how many of them I am expected to do that day. So yes, this class is very effective in working your entire body. Bottom line, if you are looking for a new way to workout that will challenge you mentally and physically, this might be the place for you.
