Our mission is to empower our partners to successfully deliver the most unique, effective and exciting training method: Kettlebell Kickboxing. We want our partners to give their clients the gift of real, lasting results! There is nothing more rewarding than spearheading a health & wellness community by successfully doing what you LOVE.
Dasha Libin Anderson, MS, NASM-PES, MKC, NASE, M-KBIA developed and founded the Kettlebell Kickboxing method upon solid principals of exercise science and a decade of research on real subjects. All Kettlebell Kickboxing™ clients are carefully guided through varied, creative trademark exercises in themed classes, where they are given the personal attention needed to achieve maximum results—just take a look at our before & afters!
The Kettlebell Kickboxing fitness method and training structure can be easily placed within a pre-existing gym or studio to create an audience of happily addicted and committed “Kettlebell Kickboxers.”
A Community & Lifestyle Are Born
In 1992, Anderson’s Martial Arts Academy (AMAA) opened its doors to the NYC public. In 2009, AMAA introduced a Kettlebell Kickboxing fitness class to its Tribeca facility. Since then, the Kettlebell Kickboxing™ group classes have been deemed the MOST POPULAR Women’s Class in New York City by publications like SELF and Shape magazines. Currently, our flagship location Kettlebell Kickboxing™ classes are booked solid 3 months in advance. Our clients, many of whom buy monthly memberships, call themselves “Kettlebell Kickboxers.” The 11,000 women who have walked through our facility doors consider Kettlebell Kickboxing to be more than a method: they consider it a lifestyle.
It is our experience that every satisfied customer brings three more clients through our doors! Kettlebell Kickboxing is a welcoming and fun system; friends, co-workers, family members and couples love to work out together. Dedicated students will also bring visiting family and friends to try this unique method at your facility—trust us!
Kettlebell Kickboxing™ is a truly authentic brand concept. In addition to our members, fitness editors, trendsetters, and celebrities have made the method a household name. Featured in SELF, Shape, Fitness, Blackbelt Mag, NY1, CBS, NBC, Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing,” Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan and countless other media outlets, Kettlebell Kickboxing™ has earned its trademarked reputation as “NYC’s Hottest Female Fitness Method.” With the success of the Kettlebell Kickboxing DVD programs—the Scorcher Series 4 disc set and Body Series 11 disc set—the method has made its way into homes across the world, establishing a real and lasting global presence. We’ve capitalized on this exposure through our social media campaigns and our strategic marketing alliances and promotions. Just last year at Nike Blast Sweden, Dasha and her team taught a sold out class to 500 international Kettlebell Kickboxers!
We can help you find the right location and develop a schedule that works for your market. We teach our partners how to mimic our module, teach the method, stay current, uphold the highest standards of training and education, hire and present the best trainers, and run a successful, results-driven, community-backed business. Current music, cutting-edge research and new products are all available to KB instructors and partners. Our sales products are always available as a bonus revenue source at wholesale rates, including our DVDs, nutritional supplements, custom menus, merchandise and more! Partnerships with celebrities and corporate memberships are presented to our franchisers whenever possible.
Once you become a licensed Kettlebell Kickboxing facility, you and your staff will reap all the benefits of our brand, including all of our marketing materials and promotional content. We can help you design an independent website or add a webpage to your current gym site, and we’ll list you on the Kettlebell Kickboxing master site.

Since 2012, niche fitness classes, boutique gyms, and group workout methods have tripled, continuing to grow worldwide. This year, the fitness industry has topped an all time $19 billion high, and research shows that people are more likely to go to the gym and reflect on their health during a down economy. Kettlebell Kickboxing™ has seen a significant rise just from 2010 to 2013. During our annual January 48 Hour Fitness Special, our numbers skyrocketed from 3,000 buys to 5,000 buys in just 3 years!
