We have a passion for kettlebells because we have seen them work for us as well as our members.
The simplicity of the kettlebell as a fitness tool combined with the varied dynamic movements makes it one of the best pieces of fitness equipment out there.
Will is a full time firefighter with Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and has seen amazing results from training members of his watch with kettlebells. The high intensity, short duration circuit style workouts suit the busier trainee especially those with families and/or heavy work schedules.
During our time using kettlebells we have learned and become involved in Kettlebell sport (see Girevoy Sport page on this site) We have learned more about the intricacies of the specific movements used in Kettlebell Sport and in turn have used this to develop our own fitness and our members. At KBC we believe that everyone needs goals in their fitness to keep them motivated and also have something measurable to see improvement. Kettlebell sport is an excellent platform to see and develop this as well as improve kettlebell technique. Gradings are completely voluntary but we encourage all members to work towards a new grade so they can see for themselves the progress they have made.

Like any other fitness tool, there is no magic quick fix but we believe that by using kettlebells in the correct way with the right amount of intensity and regularity you will see great results.
