A kettlebell is a cast iron weight that resembles a bowling ball with a rounded handle used to perform a number of different exercises. The size and shape of the kettlebell makes it an effective tool for all ages, the handle allowing for easy grip, especially useful for older adults. You can find them in all different weights and sizes, the different weight changing the intensity of the exercise.
The beauty of kettlebell training is that only one piece of equipment is needed, the kettlebell itself. This piece of equipment is very versatile and elicits a dynamic kind of training that works your body in different ways, enhancing endurance, balance, agility, strength, and even cardio fitness. Exercises done with the kettlebell integrate the whole body, using core, legs, and hips to help maneuver the heavy object.
BENEFITS OF KETTLEBELL TRAINING ARE:
- better coordination and posture
- protection from injuring
- less back pain
- improved strength
Kettlebell training seems perfect, right? However, there is a slight risk, as there always is when using heavy weights. It is easy to get injured when doing the moves the wrong way, but this is where I can help. My goal is to work with you to learn how much weight and which kinds of exercises are right for you and your body. It is important to be mindful of your own needs and not start comparing yourself to others, something that is easily done when looking at Instagram or watching others at the gym.
It would be my pleasure to help you start your kettlebell training path. This is one of my favorite ways to get in shape, and I am looking forward to teaching you kettlebell clings, swings, snatches, or even just basic strength training using kettlebells for beginners.
