Need A New Year Resolution? Kettlebells: Rapid Results, Proven History, No Nonsense Fitness Tool.
The oldest yet newest addition to American fitness has been unleashed: Kettlebells. What the heck is a Kettlebell? The kettlebell was brought to America in 1998 by Pavel Tsatsouline, a former Russian Special Forces human performance coach. A kettlebell is a centuries-old Russian training tool that looks like a cannon ball with a handle. It appears that, originally, kettlebells were counter-weights used in Russian markets. Country folk started throwing them around and eventually they became very popular in Russia as a training tool. In 1913 the Russian magazine Hercules reported “Not a single sport develops our muscular strength and bodies as well as kettlebell athletics.” A Russian strong man was referred to as a kettlebell man girevik. Girya is Russian for Kettlebell.
Training with Kettlebells is the best kept weight loss and strength training secret around. The Russians have been using Kettlebells for centuries (think about how they dominated the Olympics). Kettlebell training is now being used by US Law Enforcement, US Navy SEALS and other elite forces. With Kettlebell Elite’s instruction there are no more separate weight training days or lengthy cardio days. Kettlebell training is an all in one workout, suitable for all ages and all fitness levels.
By combining kettlebells and heart rate management; Karen Smith and Kettlebell Elite is transforming clients in rapid time with maximum results. A kettlebell workout is both anaerobic and aerobic; in laymen terms, it’s like running and lifting weights at the same time. This allows our clients to burn on average 700 calories per hour; difficult to do with running or lifting as standalone workouts.
Karen Smith owns Kettlebell Elite; the first and only kettlebell specific training facility in southern Virginia. All Kettlebell Elite Instructors are Russian certified. Kettlebell Elite is the first and only training facility in Virginia to incorporate state of the art heart rate monitoring of all clients simultaneously during training sessions. We want our clients to get full potential of their training sessions. This can only be done by managing heart rate and insuring very high caloric fat burns.
Karen and Kettlebell Elite are available for group or private sessions. For additional information or to experience the kettlebell; contact Karen directly.
