The most precious commodity in my world? It’s time, hands down! This is much of why I’m so grateful for kettlebells. A solid warmup, a “hit it hard” 20-minute workout, and ta-dah, I’ve managed to blend postural, core, and cardio work all in one, ready to face the rest of my day.
With a kettlebell, you can train your whole body. They’re about functional strength, power, and endurance, so they’re a great way to lean up — especially since they can get your heart pumping like crazy. Oh, you want that backed up? The American Council of Exercise has issued a statement that “kettlebells provide a much higher-intensity workout than standard weight-training routines and offer superior results in a short amount of time.”
The two exceptions are vertical pulls — kettlebells are complemented nicely by lat pulldowns, pullups, and chinups — and building a high volume of muscle mass. If your goal is to pack on muscle, please contact me to book a more traditional hypertrophy session.
Kettlebells should be approached with respect to keep your lower back and shoulders safe. They warrant investing in specialized training before using them on your own — and please check the trainer’s certifications!
Join me for kettlebell training to get leaner and stronger! Contact me to learn how to keep yourself safe while using these awkward and awesome tools, or if you already use them, to tweak or spice up your existing routine.
I’m so confident you’ll enjoy working with me that I offer a money-back guarantee: if ever you don’t feel satisfied for any reason once a session is completed, I will promptly reimburse you for it.
