Evan Webb has opened a fitness studio for working with kettlebells.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Berkshire Kettlebells will offer a new kind of workout experience in North Adams.

Owner and certified kettlebell instructor Evan Webb said this is his first business venture, but he has been working with the round metal weights for near seven years.

"When I started using them seven years ago there was really no place to learn about kettlebells except the Internet, which can be hazardous to your health," Webb said. "I love kettlebells so much, and I want to create a place that is the type of place I would have like to have gone to."

Webb's gym, at 151 Eagle St., held its

It was a good year for the stock market. The S&P 500 Index was up in excess of 12.5 percent with the other averages putting in a good performance as well. Naturally, investors are hoping for another year of stellar returns. Is that a reasonable expectation?

At the beginning of each year, people like me are expected to gaze into crystal balls or swirl the tea leaves at the bottom of a cup and pontificate on what the New Year will be like for investors.
