Kettlebells help Dave win gold medals. Why are they so good?

Kettlebells are the must have fitness equipment, giving an unparalleled training routine. Kettlebells are weights that can be lifted like ordinary dumbells and can be swung about for an intense cardio, resistance and core workout. With kettlebells you can have a workout in a very little space that will get your heart rate up and exercise your whole body. A 30 minute workout will burn 600 calories, the same as going for a run. There are plenty of exercises that you can do with a kettlebell. See the video on the right hand side of the homepage for some guidance.

Devine Bodies utilise kettlebells in their 1:1 and group sessions.

Well done to Dave C, who attends our Kettlebell classes at Northumbria University, on his double gold medals in the national martial arts championships.

Dave had this to say, “Thanks loads for the classes at Northumbria over the past few months. I really felt the difference in my strength and explosive power at the championships and I hate going to the gym to ‘pump iron’, unlike my opponents. I like my martial arts but I also appreciate the need for Strength and Conditioning for injury prevention and power. Your classes really made a massive difference to my performance and I am now a double gold medal champion. I thought I would drop you a message since you deserve to know of your important contribution to my success. Perhaps more importantly I acquired no injuries!”

Thanks for your comments Dave.

    Kettlebells are the greatest approach to get fit. I in no way bother with any other gear nowadays, just a couple of kettlebells and I look in top form.

    I first heard about kettle bell workouts by my ex-boyfriend. He’s gone, but I still use the kettlebells ;) they’re amazing for calorie burning. Simply wondering if there is a more practical fat burning and muscle toning (building) exercise around? Btw, love the blog!

    Hi Jess. I used to pound the pavement for 30 miles each week and do the odd bit of free weights. Having discovered Kettlebells though, I’ve scraped all those dead miles. I now work with KBs twice a week for 30 mins and do 2 hours dedicated cardio ususally spinning. KBs are so adaptable you can easily incorporate interval training (e.g. 1 min on an exercise, followed by 30 secs of active recovery, say the plank) to help with fat burning. KBs are becoming so popular in Newcastle, UK, that I have been given three extra classes as from next week at two new venues. Enjoy using them.
