There’s a growing fitness phenomenon called kettlebells, and they’re not only changing the face of fitness, they’re changing the shape of bodies, too.
Kettlebells date back to 18th-century Russia and look like cannonballs with handles. The cast-iron celebrity faves (Jennifer Lopez is a fan) are available in a variety of weights. When lifted and extended from the body in slow, natural movements, they offer a full-body workout. All the exercises focus on a specific muscle group, while prompting each group to work together.
According to Adam Cronin, kettlebell expert and founder of Miami-based Soma Fitness, “Training with kettlebells can benefit overall health and wellness in 20 to 30 minutes, two to three times a week.” Because of the low-impact nature of the training, Cronin says even those with past back problems and other injuries can use kettlebells.
With continued practice, you’ll see improved strength, flexibility, balance and muscle tone-and, of course, less body fat.
