Kettlebells

The kettlebell is a cast iron weight that resembles a cannonball with a handle.  With dynamic, total body movements Kettlebells challenge both the muscular and cardiovascular system.  Their use builds functional strength, stamina, flexibility, and can actually rehabilitate old injuries. The kettlebell is a fun, unique, portable piece of exercise equipment that anyone can use to get in shape—and its versatility is bar none!

TRX Suspension Trainer

The TRX Suspension Trainer consists of lightweight straps with handles at the end.  Through precision movement it trains multiple muscles at once, in multiple planes of motion, with the ability to modify all exercises with ease.  It does this by harnessing your own body weight to create resistance as you train.  Suspension training tightens your core, strengthens and lengthens your muscles, and increases your balance, stability and flexibility for an all-in-one, incredible workout.  One of its best qualities is that it’s suitable for all fitness levels.

Our TRX Suspension Training sessions are packed with exercises you already know, but the workout is enhanced by supporting either the hands or feet by a single anchor point while the opposite end of the body is in contact with the ground.  You have the ability to make each exercise easier or harder simply by changing the angle of your body or changing how much of your body is supported by the ground.

Our workouts are unlike the exercise fads you may have experienced at commercial gyms.  We give the ultimate in functional training whether you are training for a fight or just training to get out of bed on time for work every day.

Regardless of whether you come train with us, do your body a favor and learn only from certified Kettlebell & certified TRX instructors.

In Summer 2008 UMA instructor Rob Eis earned his CrossFit Kettlebell Instructor certification from Jeff Martone, one of the first certified senior Kettlebell instructors in the U.S.

Testimonial

I found Unbridled Martial Arts (UMA) back in 2008. I had looked at some schools online but right away noticed the high price tag. Not only did the schools want high monthly tuition, they also wanted me to sign an annual contract and buy special uniforms. I was discouraged since I knew I wouldn’t be able to afford all that and also I didn’t know how long I’d be staying in Bellingham. Just as I was losing hope of learning MMA, I came across UMA’s website.
I was surprised to see that there was no annual contract to sign nor were there any other hidden fees. I could join the school on month-to-month basis and train three nights a week. If I wanted to stop training, I was able to do so without getting penalized, unlike other schools and gyms that bind you with their annual contract. With UMA’s affordable and reasonable enrollment structure, I must admit I was skeptical of the quality of classes offered but I decided to take a chance.
There were people of all skill levels and all shapes and sizes attending the class. Rob was very organized with his lesson plan. He explained and demonstrated things carefully at a pace that was very easy to follow even for the beginners. When students paired up to work on drills, Rob went around the room giving pointers and assistance where needed.
I am happy that I discovered Unbridled Martial Arts seven years ago. Rob is still expanding the workouts in new and fun ways. UMA is such a comfortable atmosphere where I never feel intimidated by others or out of place. At UMA, students help each other to succeed and progress together instead of beating each other to get ahead of your classmates.
We all take turns cleaning the mats after class instead of expecting our teacher or a janitor to clean them. When I notice my classmates’ progress and my own improvement in class, I’m reminded that when you invest in yourself, your friends, and in the school, everybody gets better. I feel more confident in myself knowing that I have some self-defense knowledge and skills. I know this is a journey that will never end but I sure am glad that I got my start at UMA.
