Resurging as one of the HOTTEST fitness trends, the century old kettlebell has proven itself to be one of the #1 workouts for burning calories, and reducing body fat.
According to the American Council of Exercise, kettlebell workouts can burn up to 20 calories/min, that is like running a 6 minute mile! The only other exercise that comes close to that number is cross-country skiing.
What is a Kettlebell Workout?
Kettlebells are more than a substitution for traditional free weights. Giveroy (kettlebell) Sport is actually 3 lifts; Jerk, Snatch, and Long Cycle. The BEST part is that all three lifts can be broken down/isolated to their simplest form of kettlebell movement and you will still get RESULTS.
A Few Benefits of Kettlebell Training:
|Increased Strength without Increased mass (no bulk)||Increased Core/Abdominal Strength||
Increased Resistance to Injury

There are very few workouts, or pieces of fitness equipment that can deliver not only a strength workout, but have the potential for high-intensity cardiovascular activity & mobility training. By combining weight with our body’s natural movements (tossing, pulling, lifting, carrying), kettlebells allow for a functional performance resulting in practical & dramatic increases in our endurance and strength. Commonly known as the “Full Body Fit!”
Ready to get started!?
Though kettlebells are extremely versatile when it comes to combining them in your workouts, safe and effective body mechanics are crucial when preventing injury. Unless you are using kettlebells as a replacement for traditional free weights, we do not recommend learning the basics from DVDs or Youtube, and highly recommend that you seek out a coach/trainer with experience in kettlebell sport.
