Kettlebells are one of the most versatile pieces of exercise equipment you can use to achieve your fitness goals with.
Traditionally kettlebells come in cast iron and are ball-shaped with a handle attached at the top.
Modern kettlebells come in all shapes, sizes and colours and are growing in popularity as an awesome way to increase your strength and endurance.
What Are Kettlebells?
Kettlebells were thought to have been in first in Ancient Greece.
At the Archaeological Museum of Olympia in Athens Greece there is a 143kg kettebell and their modern day equivalents have not changed much.
The basic shape of a kettlebell is made up of the handle, the horns and the ball – they look like cannon balls with a handle.
The handle shape is made perfect for swinging, snatching, jerking, pulling, dead lifting, squatting, lunging, rowing and more – there is so much you can do with a kettlebell to develop muscular strength.
Quite simply it’s a workout with balls.
What Happens In A Kettlebells Class?
Kettlebell classes can take the form of a HIIT session, circuits or a mix of kettlebells within a bootcamp session.
You will challenge your body to handle a kettlebell in various ways like swinging pushing and rowing hitting multiple muscle groups at the same time – one of the reasons why kettlebells are superior to traditional forms of exercise.
Whether your new to kettlebells or an experienced ball swinger (ooh) each class has a coaching element where good technique (to prevent injury) is established before progressing onto more fun and energetic moves.
A class is divided into upper and lower body focus with abs and core work towards the end for a full body fat burning workout.
Do I Need To Be Experienced In Kettlebell Workouts?
There are various weights of kettlebells from which to start from and each class has a coaching element for those less experienced with kettlebells.
Also there are modified moves (less strenuous) as well as intensified moves (more strenuous) in all of our classes including kettlebells to allow as many participants as possible to get an awesome full body workout from these extremely versatile pieces of equipment.
What Should I Bring To Class?
Trainers, water, exercise mat (optional).
