General Information

Meet the Kettlebell

Developed in the 1700’s in Russia and used by the Soviet Army for training, this cast iron weight is used to perform ballistic exercises that combines CVS, strength and flexibility. They are holistic in their nature working several muscles simultaneously.

In one study, kettlebell enthusiasts performing a 20 minute workout burned on average 13.6 calories/minute equivalent to running a 6 minute mile pace. Used effectively an hour kettlebell workout can burn 1000-1500 calories.
