What are Kettlebells?
Hundreds of years old, Kettlebells are basically a cannonball with a handle. Just like conventional weights they come in a variety of sizes and so can be used by both men and women to achieve their goals, be it weight loss, size, strength, or increased flexibility.
Why use Kettlebells?
Popular with Jennifer Lopez, Gerri Halliwell, Lance Armstrong, and Penelope Cruz, this ancient training method is now the number one choice of exercise for people who are serious about losing weight and improving their fitness.
A Kettlebell workout combines speed, strength, power, flexibility and a great deal of cardio into a single session. They work the body as a single unit with a combination of swings, pulls and pushes and therefore deliver a workout unlike anything you will have experienced before! Unlike conventional training, Kettlebells work not only the major muscles but also the often overlooked stabilizing muscles leading to improved posture.
A well designed Kettlebell workout will burn around 1,500 calories an hour. If you compare this to aerobics which burns around 450 or jogging at 675 you can see why they are so popular.
What can Kettlebells do for me?
