Kettlebell training has been around for over a century but is quickly becoming one
of the preferred methods of training because it produces results quickly. You can get transformed into a lean, strong, fat-burning machine in half the time of traditional training. You will look and feel your best as you develop functional strength and increase your energy levels while challenging your body from all angles.
Kettlebells are weights that look like cannonballs with handles, it is a simple, yet very effective piece of equipment that allows you to work most of your muscle groups at the same time. A kettlebell’s handle and center of gravity are much different from that of a dumbbell or barbell; its design makes it easy to move dynamically and safely around your body. Using a series of quick movements, kettlebell training provides a high level of cardiovascular exercise with the additional benefit of a core workout. You will target your abs, arms, glutes, hips and thighs with this very efficient and effective method of training.
How does the training progression at Central Penn work?
During your training at Central Penn, we will introduce you to kettlebell fundamentals, including how kettlebells are different from other workouts and how to move your spine and hips properly when using them. You will be introduced first to the basic foundation exercises in the Beginner progressions. When you are ready to advance to more challenging exercises you will move into the Intermediate and Advanced sessions. By using a safe progression based on your strength and flexibility, kettlebell training is suitable for most ages and fitness levels and considered to be a safe method of training.
