The 'Kettlebell Difference' is the perfect blend of strength, mobility, flexibility and cardiovascular response
What makes kettlebell training different & better than conventional weight training? Kettlebell fitness training epitomizes the move to functional training by fitness participants the world over
"Functional fitness has moved beyond the trend stage, and is simply one of the driving forces for many of the 50 million health club members."
– Meredith Poppler of IHRSA (the International Health, Racquet and Sports Club Association)
Until the arrival of KetFit™ the popularity of kettlebell training has been confined to just a small group
of enthusiasts, and most potential participants have been deterred from taking it up due to the
perceived ‘hardcore’ nature of the workout
Unlike conventional weights, a kettlebell's displaced centre of mass uniquely challenges the
body’s stabilizer muscles and forces the entire body to participate in the movement providing
a true, functional approach to conditioning
As well as training the oft-neglected posterior chain (back, gluteals and hamstrings) through
a full range of motion, kettlebells also offer unsurpassed strength, endurance and a
cardiovascular capacity to match. Due to the kettlebells' unique design (its displaced
centre of mass) muscles are often loaded and stretched through a greater range of motion,
and because your entire neuro-muscular system is active your metabolism is also quickly
elevated, making kettlebell training excellent for weight loss and body shaping
Tedd Keating PhD, and Professor of Physical Exercise & Human Performance at Manhattan
College, says "Kettlebell exercises help with regular everyday functions such as lifting
groceries, carrying a pile of magazines, gardening, throwing out the trash or lifting a child;
moving irregular sized objects and controlling the momentum"
