The newest fitness trend to hit the Puget Sound is known as kettlebells, it’s a workout using a flat-bottomed cannonball with a handle that students of the trade use to condition every part of their body.

For those bored with regular gym exercises a kettlebell workout is worth trying to tone your body.

How do Kettlebells Work?

You use a “pood” better known as a measure of weight (in Russian). A pood is anywhere from 4 pounds to 106 pounds. The fundamentals taught during kettlebell workouts focuses on hip snap, which gives your arms momentum to swing up. As you work with the kettlebells your entire body is targeted with muscles working from all angles. It is a cardio and strength building workout popular with celebrities and professional athletes.

Are Kettlebell Instructors Certified?

If you want to try a kettlebell workout look for instructors that are RKC or AKC certified or are a certified personal trainer at an accredited gym.
