Beginners Guide to Kettlebell Training

 Why I wanted to write this guide   When I discovered working out with kettlebells my thoughts about exercise and fitness changed.  I went from someone who really did not like to exercise and hated the idea of the gym or getting sweaty to someone who looked forward to the chance to swing my bell, learn new moves, get stronger and challenge myself with heavier weights.  But the kettlebell lover I am today was once a beginner that didn’t even know how to pick it up, let alone swing it and I really wish that I had found one place I could go that would teach me all the basics I needed to know to make my learning curve shorter.  So well, here is my attempt at just that!   It seems that not a day goes by without a new exercise or fitness trend being revealed. Kettlebells are not a fitness trend or a gimmick, they have been around for 100’s of years and trusted by some of the best for the incredible results they can generate.   In fact, they are the forefathers of modern day weight training.

The 1 minute Interval… Introducing the Super LEAN class

When I first created Warrior Goddess Kettlebell Training I researched all the different modes of fitness, training instructors and methods out there to create and formulate my own unique approach using the amazing kettlebell. I wanted to create a careful combination of yoga, martial arts, fitness and kettlebells all into one. Kettlebell training is not new, nor is it a fad, having been around for 100s of years and so of course have yoga and martial arts. I wanted to combine this research and study of fitness methods like HIIT and Tabata along with my love of feeling kick ass and empowered using the best of what martial arts offer without the actually punching and kicking! I also love the teachings of my favorite Kettlebell teachers Dasha Libin Anderson of Kettlebell Kickboxing and Greg from Kettlebells Workouts in addition to the traditional teacher of Pavel Tsatsouline. We know that kettlebell training makes women lose weight in half the time, maintain weight-loss, create lean muscle and simply love the challenge of every session.
