Beginning Kettlebell

Kettlebell training is the cutting edge of fitness training. A kettlebell is a weighted iron ball with a handle. When lifted and extended away from the body with a natural momentum, a kettlebell provides a great functional workout and extraordinary cardiovascular benefits. Because of the offset handle, kettlebell training is the ultimate in core stabilization. Kettlebells deliver extreme all-around fitness and are surprisingly safe.
