Announcing NL. Kettlebells
The BEST Kettlebell Training In Newfoundland With Strong First Certified Coach Kevin Farrell
Kevbells Hey, Kevin Farrell here from NL Kettlebells, to talk to you about our new upcoming program that offers strength training, cardio, fat loss, mobility and all around better fitness and health all thrown into one! I am SFG Level 1 Instructor, Training For Warriors (TFW) Level 1 Instructor, and a HWTC coach and personal trainer. I have been training clients over 2 years now and have more then 10 years of coaching experience. My love for coaching has now brought me to create NL Kettlebells, and bring kettle bell training to Newfoundland. Here are some of the benefits of kettle bell training and some background information on them. Benefits of Kettle Bell Training 1. Serious Cardio 2. Flexibility without long poses 3. Fun and varied, never boring! 4. It’s safe — for any age, shape or size 5. Greater fat loss Fat gets the ol’ one-two-three punch. First, there is the extremely high metabolic cost of throwing the weight around. Second, it’s a strength training workout creating dense muscle mass, which burns calories from fat stores all day long while increasing your resting metabolism. Finally, combine that with the fat burning effects of human growth hormone that is stimulated by these kinds of whole-body, complex movements. There is no better way to burn fat. This is why sprinters have ripped muscles and marathon runners have a skinny look.

6. Strengthens every muscle from head-to-toe Kettlebell training consists of whole-body movement exercises. It’s well-known that compound, whole body movements typical of kettlebell exercises are superior to machines that isolate muscles for improving muscle tone, body composition, and strength. Further, kettlebells strengthen the tendons and ligaments, making the joints tougher and less-susceptible to injury. 7. Don’t confuse kettlebells with conventional weight training or bodybuilding. We focus on (a) movements, not muscles, (b) whole-body, functional training, (c) strength as a function of mobility, (d) cardio and strength combined 8. It’s enjoyable Kettlebell training is quick and enjoyable, which is one of the reasons you’ll stick with it. And, you’re only doing it twice a week—so you don’t have a chance to get bored. 9. It’s fun! KB exercises and movements are simple, fun, unique and you can combine it with other exercise modalities. You can make it as fun as you want it to be. 10. Build a lean, muscular physique Men see that coveted wedge shape emerge as the training creates broad shoulders, defines abdominals, builds up their arms and pares down their waists. 11. Women won’t bulk up! Women get the svelte, lean, firm shape that enhances the best of the female body. 12. Easy to learn Movements are simple and you can start using them right away. No matter how old or out-of-shape you are, everyone can do it and should be doing it. 13. Extremely versatile KB’s can help you lose weight, build muscle, enhance sport performance or maintain fitness level, as well as improve quality of life as you age. All with one simple tool. 14. Serious Cardio KB training will make you re-think what your max heart rate is! KBl training is perfect for the advantages popular with HIIT (high intensity interval training) as opposed to long-slow cardio. It is the most effective overall fitness regimen available. 15. Greater cardio benefits Repetitive KB ballistic drills challenge more muscles — practically the entire body — for a total-body cardiovascular adaptation. 16. Cardio without killing your joints The ballistic, but non impact nature of KB work is the key. Instead, KB exercises actually strengthen your joints! 17. Develop functional strength Even if you are not an athlete, KB training uses fundamental movement patterns making everyday activities easier and injury less likely. You will stand taller, carry packages easier, climb stairs with less effort and have more energy. Kettlebell training offers the most functional training possible, because the parts of the body must work as a unit. 18. Builds Mobility Stretching practitioners often develop high levels of muscular flexibility, but without developing joint stability or muscular strength. That is a prescription for injury! KB training provides all three: mobility, stability, and strength. A big part of this is the design of a KB with it's off-centered weight. 19. Never boring They say if you get bored with KBs, you have no imagination. You can endlessly combine the basic drills to have a different workout each time. It’s amazing how many exercises you can come up with from a simple piece of iron just by changing your grip. 20. Develop core strength Kettlebells require you to engage the core in almost every lift. KB’s have a reputation for strengthening backs and abs like nothing else!.. 21. Simplify your exercise Just four basic exercises (the swing, clean, press and snatch and their variations in endless combinations) can be used two or three times per week to keep you lean, strong and functional for the rest of your life. 22. Gentle rehabilitation Those who are older and wiser benefit by healing their pain, gaining strength and energy and functionality of their body that they once lost. Exceptional core strengthening effects and easily modified drills tone and strengthen as mobility is restored. KB training is so simple and flexible that it merges well with physical therapy routines. 23. Better posture— the real thing KB’s strengthen the entire posterior chain that is key not only to athletic performance, but for simply standing up straight and effortlessly. 24. Heal aches and pains Talk to kettlebellers and you’ll hear stories of shoulder and knee joints getting better, chronic lower back pain disappearing, stiffness relieved, and mobility increased. KB exercises reveal misalignments, compensations and weaknesses in the body and proceed to fix them. As the body returns to the aligned state, musculoskeletal pain is relieved. 25. Strengthens joints Repetitive ballistic loading of the KB swing and other quick lifts appears to be highly beneficial to your joints. 26. Develop incredible power Perform the Olympic explosive lifts like the clean, jerk or snatch if you know how. But you can get almost the same benefits using KBs — with greater safety and simplicity. 27. Builds strength/endurance Often times it is not how strong you are when you are fresh but how strong you remain once you become winded and have expended a lot of energy that determines the outcome. Maximal strength is very important as well, but the well rounded fighter must be prepared to deliver multiple strikes in combinations. This requires tremendous strength/endurance. Kettlebell high repetition snatches, for example, develops a strong work capacity and anaerobic threshold. 28. Develops strength at the extremes of your range of motion Exercising this way creates the ability to better stabilize your joints, improves flexibility and enhances mobility. 29. Correct imbalances Kettlebell training will quickly reveal the weaknesses and weak spots of your body. There is no escape! Since most kettlebell exercises are performed with a single limb, you cannot help but get both sides of your body equally functional. This is especially true because of the structure of the kettlebell, an off-center weight. 30. Improve your recovery Recovery is a critical facet of athletic training, but training to failure once a week is inefficient and results in debilitating soreness. KB drills facilitate active recovery and provide exceptional conditioning. Training with dumbbells, barbells, medicine balls (and anything else you can come up with) offer great benefits as well. However, kettlebells are different. They look different. They feel different. And they work differently!
