The Kettlebell: A Great tool for getting Strong, Fit and Toned
Everywhere you turn these days you are confronted with people swinging around big hulking pieces of iron and steel. This may seem like an intimidating form of training to the novice but this is actually one of the most efficient forms of training that the world has seen. This is of course ‘Kettlebell Training’.
Kettlebell training is taking the fitness world by storm but this is no fad. In fact, the kettlebell has been around hundreds of years and has been a secret of the Eastern Europeans. It is only now that trainers around Sydney are catching onto this wonderfully effective form of training.
The kettlebell is rather simple in its design as you can see from the picture below. It is a ball of steel with a handle. The bell has an off centre of gravity and this provides the magic.
So what kind of benefits does kettlebell training provide? Here are a few of the most important
- Whole body work out in a short space of time
- Generates fat loss fast
- Develops strength and flexibility simultaneously
- Generate functional strength results
- A variation and a change up to traditional ways of training
- Cuts out the boredom of routine with a great number of exercise variations
- Development of a well-conditioned core unit
People that use kettlebells regularly become very strong, toned and eliminate body fat.
Kettlebell training caters for all fitness levels as there are a great array of exercises that challenge both the novice and experienced kettlebell trainer. Instruction of correct technique is paramount so the participant can derive all the benefits it has to offer.
