When you see the letters OKC, it's understandable if you wince at first — but don't let the Warriors' arch enemy own the initials. They also belong to Berkeley's Orange Kettlebell Club, a gym that focuses on integrating kettlebells into your life in a doable, non-aggro way. The instructors guide you step by step as you build strength and immerse yourself in a community that extends across the globe. And it's not all kettlebells all the time: The classes are built around old-school functional cross training using ropes, sleds, tires and barbells. The Kettlebell Sport Basics class welcomes everyone, even if you've never lifted before. Bring a friend. You know, the Klay to your Steph.
