What is a Kettlebell? Originally used in Russia about 350 years ago as handled counterweight, it is a cast iron ball with a handle (the horn) attached to the top of it. They are small and portable, and can be incorporated into all aspects of athletic and fitness training. Kettlebell Sport Lifting (Girevoy Sport) is the National Sport of Russia. The Russian Military requires its recruits to train with Kettlebells. The US Secret Service, FBI, and all branches of the military are now required to train with bells.
The unique design makes kettlebell training differs from dumbbells because the center of mass extends beyond the hand, creating the need to counter balance and stabilize during your workout, engaging your core muscles. Kettlebells can be swung, thrown, juggled, pressed, held, and manipulated in hundreds of ways, creating immense diversity and unqiue ways to target different muscles. Kettlebells range from 5lbs to over 200lbs. Every age and fitness level is encouraged to build core strength and this is a great way to do it! Working out with a kettlebell guarantees to get your heart pumping with aerobic and metabolic benefits. Burn anywhere from 500-900 calories during our 30 and 50 minute classes.
