“My only goal for starting the Rotterdam Kettlebell Academy was to grow Kettlebell Sport in the Netherlands.” – Barry Andre, owner
A small country of 16 million people is not exactly where you would expect a “hot spot” to be located. Especially not for the little-known sport of kettlebells, which is most often practiced in eastern European countries such as Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. Therefore I was pleasantly surprised to walk into the Rotterdam Kettlebell Academy on Sunday, December 20 to find my workshops packed full of enthusiastic new students ready to learn the nuances of Kettlebell Sport technique.
As far as I know, the Rotterdam Kettlebell Academy is the biggest Kettlebell Sport focused gym in the world.
