Kettlebell are for everyone!

Kettlebells were developed in Russia in the 1700s, primarily for weighing crops.  Seems the farmers enjoyed the physical benefits kettlebells provided and in time we now have the Sport of Kettlebell! I absolutely love training with them as do my clients/members.  Why not?  They provide benefits that most other weight training does not.  This iron globe with a handle on it addresses all components of fitness!  KBs are great for 1:1 personal training, group environment and training sport specific.    LOVE Kettlebell training!
