A kettlebell is a cannonball with a handle.
You can use them to work every muscle in your body. Kettlebells can be used to achieve any fitness goals you may have. Too cold outside for a run and don’t have access to a treadmill? Do kettlebell swings for 20 minutes and you have an aerobic workout. Looking to increase your power and coordination? Grab a kettlebell and do some snatches or clean and presses. Want to know my favorite core exercise? Try a Turkish get-up (watch).
The best part about kettlebells is that you can perform all the same exercises that you would normally do with dumbbells like presses, rows, lunges, bicep curls- you don’t need to be an expert.
If you feel like you need some instruction come in to Empower and try out our Saturday kettlebell class. It starts at 9:30 AM every Saturday and the first one is free of charge. You can just show up or sign up here for your convenience. Cheers!
