In 2019 Mike launched the Pike&Rose Kettlebell Club to bring the community, fitness benefits, and good-spirited competition of kettlebell sport lifting to North Bethesda.
The concept grew from a small pet project to a dedicated studio with top gear at Tough Temple CrossFit. The club meets 3x a week and members get a new GPP workout each month. Every quarter, we have a sport meet to test ourselves and have some fun with other lifters in the community.
Meets are lively and we’re all about bragging rights and rib pokes. Serious lifting doesn’t have to take itself too seriously.
Sign up here and see what all the fun is about!

We have every kind of lifter – from 16 years old to 68, men and women, complete beginners who’ve never lifted to ranked competitive athletes. We have a fun and supportive attitude, there’s no intimidation here! Everyone lifts, and we all get fit together. Workouts include kettlebell sport, fitness lifts, med balls, and bodyweight work for a total workout. Add in the monthly GPP and quarterly meets, and you’re set!

Kettlebell Sport is an internationally recognized sport with 3 primary lifts – single arm snatch, double or single arm jerk, and double or single arm clean+jerk (called Long Cycle). Sets are either 5 or 10 minutes long, and lifters compete to see how many reps they can achieve in that time for each lift. You can’t put the bells down during your set.
We follow recognized Sport Lifting standards and lifters may choose between coefficient scoring or ranking tables.
