Kettlebell Training

If you want to accelerate your fitness levels and improve your overall function then train with Kettlebells at our exercise studio.

Our advanced Kettlebell instructor will guide you through effective and safe Kettlebell training to maximise your results. You will learn how to use both styles of Kettlebell, Girevoy (Sport) and Hardstyle.

 

What are Kettlebells?

 

The Kettlebell is a cast iron ball with a handle attached to the top. Unlike a dumbbell, the centre of mass is outside the handle and which means that the Kettlebell is constantly pulling away from you.

Consequently, Kettlebell training leads to greater work being imposed on the body, in less time, and teaches the body to move and function as an integrated unit recruiting the core, stabilizer and primary muscle-groups more effectively.

 

Who can use them?

 

Kettlebells are suitable for almost everyone,  because they fully involve all the components of physical training including strength, speed and power, flexibility, endurance, joint mobility, balance, and cardiovascular health and can provide a fast, intense and effective training option suited to our very busy and modern lifestyle.

Kettlebells can provide excellent benefits to anyone who wants to lose weight, be fit and healthy, reduce risk of injury, move more effectively, improve in sport, strengthen and feel better for everyday living. Kettlebell training is open to men and women, young and old who are looking for a challenging, more efficient and effective training option.

Why is Kettlebell Training so effective?

 

The dynamic and unique exercises like swings and snatches performed during Kettlebell training will apply constant pulling and pushing forces and greater instability on the body. This means the body is forced to recruit more muscles during your workout.

Kettlebell training builds multiple components of fitness and athletic development simultaneously. This takes advantage of the positive transfer effect these movement patterns have for athletic and sports-specific training as well as general functional movement patterns that are used in everyday life.

Kettlebell training is a rhythmic and systematic type of training which demands efficient and dynamic whole body movement and can often be described as a form of calisthenics.

Whilst there are many exercises from simple to complex using when using Kettlebells, it's important to understand that movement quality is vital when using this traditional tool. Below are two foundation exercises that you will learn at Southfields Physiotherapy.
