About Us

Baltimore Kettlebell Club

Throughout their lives, Dan and Jessica Cenidoza have been practitioners of fitness and health. Early in Dan’s career, his business started out at a home gym which evolved to him opening a small gym in 2011. A very busy year later, they moved to a new facility and started the fitness club, Art and Strength. This soon would become Baltimore Kettlebell Club. Their vision for BKC was to provide a space for the community to better themselves through fitness; a place filled with positivity, passion, and respect. Fast forward 8 years and they have provided just that.

“Our mission is and always will be to instruct and inspire people to live stronger, healthier lives. At BKC, we are committed to serving the community and providing the highest levels of training. Whether you are interested in group classes, personal training, or one of our community events, our trainers are committed to your success and health. When you walk through the doors of BKC, you are a part of a family. You will be greeted by name and encouraged throughout your entire workout. Here, you will never be judged by how you look, how you eat, how much you weigh, or what you do in your spare time. Your progress will be measured by your performance. We are a Strongfirst accredited gym and our motto is: “I AM A STUDENT OF STRENGTH” “STRENGTH HAS A GREATER PURPOSE” We will always maintain the highest levels of competency in our training. We will never sacrifice technique in favor of more weight. We are always striving for integrity and leading by example. We look forward to seeing you in the club!”
