Discover the Benefits of Kettlebells
If you would like a full-body workout that incorporates flexibility, strength and stamina, then kettlebells are the perfect solution for you.
So, what is a kettlebell? It's basically a cast-iron ball with a handle. They come in a range of weights and sizes just as traditional dumbbells do, but the benefit lies in the fact that the center of mass is offset from the handle. This requires not only the strength and coordination to lift the kettlebell, but also utilizes many stabilizer muscles throughout the body.
Kettlebells are thought to be Russian in origin and over the past decade have gained in popularity across the US due to their simple, yet effective nature.
We are currently offering kettlebell classes at Kempsville and Bow Creek Recreation Centers. Classes are filling quickly, so register early!
