Where to Workout in Red Deer
I know what you’re thinking, why are you talking about a physiotherapy clinic in a fitness review series? Well, friends, this amazing little clinic studio is home to one of the first Russian trained kettlebell instructors in Canada so it makes sense that his physiotherapy practice would extend to incorporate fitness classes as well. I was able to pop in for one of their regular kettlebell classes for an all over butt-kicking.
About Weber Physio
April and Keith Weber were both born and raised in Central Alberta. Both with active backgrounds, their journeys led them both on the path of physiotherapy and the opening of their own clinic together. Keith Weber was one of the first in Canada to be trained in Russian kettlebells. You could say he’s the Canadian OG kettlebell guy. On top of owning a successful physiotherapy clinic, Keith has developed a successful kettlebell program used by the likes of Joe Rogan. If you’re looking for the best of the best in kettlebells, this is probably where you want to go.
About the Classes
Classes offered in the studio include kettlebells, women’s kettlebell crosstraining, kettlebell/yoga mixer, and physio yoga.The prerequisite to any kettlebell classes at Weber Studio is the Introductory Kettlebell Seminar. This seminar goes over all of the basic kettlebell movements and their proper forms, giving you the tools you need in regular kettlebell classes.

The kettlebell class didn’t offer a ton of one on one support, although that may have been because the class I was in were experienced regulars.
The neat thing about the classes is that they are designed to help prevent common problems found in patients needing physiotherapy. Crosstraining for women helps promote strength and prevent osteoporosis. Physio Yoga takes a rehabilitative approach to yoga. All classes are designed for everyone, whether you’re a patient of the physio clinic or not.
Drop-in – $10-15 depending on the class
10 Class Pass – $80
Unlimited Monthly Pass – $90
What I Loved Most
These classes are designed to have a minimal negative impact on your body, it’s a physiotherapy clinic after all, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get your butt kicked. I was done after the warm-up and there was still 45 minutes of kettlebell work to be had. It was a sweaty good time, and I felt like I got to be a part of their little workout family while I was there.
