SO, WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL WITH KETTLEBELLS?

The Russian Kettlebell is a centuries old strength and conditioning tool renowned for its versatility, efficiency, and portability. Resembling a cannonball with a handle, this "handheld gym" involves the entire body, and develops postural and movement quality in a uniquely efficient manner.  Because of the focus required to use a kettlebell correctly, workouts become mindful practice, like martial arts or music, sharpening the mind and  broadening the character as you chisel out the body you were always meant to have.  

No other single training tool delivers all around strength & conditioning better than the kettlebell.

TRUE FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH.

Correct kettlebell training develops all purpose strength, without significantly increasing mass. 

It makes you resilient to injury by enforcing the correct blend of strength and flexibility.

By treating your  body as one piece, a kettlebell practice will build powerful hips, an iron core, strong shoulders and a fierce grip, so you can handle whatever life throws your way.

 


FORGE A FIGHTER'S PHYSIQUE.

According to the 2010 American Council on Excercise (ACE) study by Porcari and Schnettler, subjects performing a kettlebell snatch workout "were burning at least 20.2 calories per minute, which is off the charts."  That's 1200 calories per hour.

According to Voropayev (1997), who studied top Russian kettlebellers, 21.2% increased their body weight since taking up the kettlebell, while 21.2% (same number, not a typo) decreased bodyweight, indicating the kettlebell as a powerful tool for changing your body composition, however it needs changing.

FROM GRANDMA TO GREEN BERETS.

Many of the world's greatest athletes, martial artists, and special operators, people whose lives, or at least livelihoods, depended upon being strong and durable, choose the kettlebell as their primary training implement.

Even Bruce Lee trained with kettlebells.

But you needn't be an elite athlete or Navy Seal to reap the benefits of this ancient tool.

Among the students at Going Strong are many mothers & grandmothers, women who have chosen to reject weakness, and have taken up the kettlebell.

While their peers grow weaker by the day, these ladies become stronger.
