The conditioning of a world-class fighter
Boxers and Mixed Martial Artists are among the most physically fit athletes in the world. Their abs are strong to withstand punches. Their cardiovascular systems are second to none. And fighters routinely push themselves to their limits in their practices.
Kettlebells will allow you to develop similar fitness levels without taking a punch (although, that can be arranged!). Ballistic kettlebell swings, cleans and snatches will work both your muscular and cardiovascular systems at the same time.
Weight loss and cardiovascular conditioning
Those who train with kettlebells discover very quickly that using heavy weights does not “bulk you up,” but rather “sizes you appropriately.” Snatching a kettlebell has been shown to burn up to 20 calories per minute – about what a person running a six-minute mile burns. But the kettlebell offers the benefit of strength training and less wear and tear on the joints.
A strong back and improved posture
Exercises such as the kettlebell swing and Turkish Getup strengthen the muscles of the lower back in ways traditional Western exercises do not. Hard style kettlebell training emphasizes the hips and gluteal muscles, which helps to improve posture, and eliminate back pain caused by weaknesses.
Core strength second to none
In addition to working the back muscles, hard-style kettlebell training builds strong abdominals in the front of the body. Power breathing exercises allow obliques and internal abdominals to generate up to four times the power as traditional abdominal exercises.
Injury prevention through simultaneous strength and flexibility development
Through corrective stretched and exercises developed in conjunction with the Functional Movement Screen®, students will correct imbalances and faulty movement patterns that inhibit pain-free performance.
Camaraderie to help through the toughest workouts
Buckeye Kettlebells workouts are challenging, yet fun. The group dynamic and camaraderie we foster here will help you get through the workouts, and reach your fitness goals. Our athletes are marathoners, martial artists, competitive rowers, brides, class reunion attendees, and new moms. We work together to help everyone reach their goals, and share the positive energy when new challenges are overcome.
An ability to work at your own fitness level, while still being challenged
Our members have varying degrees of fitness levels – for some setting personal strength records is important, for others, just showing up at a gym is tough enough. You will work at your own pace (with some gentle encouragement of course), and compete with your limitations, not someone else’s goals. This is YOUR workout.
Fun, challenging and intense workouts that are different than anything you have done before
We rarely do the same workout twice. At Buckeye Kettlebells, we constantly ask, “What if we tried this?” and make adjustments accordingly. Often we will go back to basics, and vary sets, reps and weights. You will be challenged in ways you have not seen – and we will give you the tools and instruction to overcome those challenges.
