We’re excited to announce the launch of our new Kettlebell training program at Metropole! This program will meet twice a week (Mondays and Wednesdays at 8 a.m.) with VIDA personal trainer Will Thompson.
Kettlebell training is unique in the sense that it activates many different muscle groups simultaneously, which elevates the heart rate for a killer cardiovascular workout. There are over a hundred different exercises that can be performed with kettlebells, so you’ll hit every major muscle group with a mixture of skill-building and circuit training exercises.
In Will’s program, you’ll learn how to use kettlebells safely and effectively through a fun but challenging 50-minute class. Intensity of the sessions are totally modifiable by using different size kettlebells, lower repetitions, etc., which means people of all fitness levels are welcome to attend!
So what’s a session like? Will explains that he emphasizes proper form first and then moves on to more advanced movements.
“Kettlebells are a modality that many people use incorrectly, but could benefit greatly from using them correctly. They target your posterior muscles and the entire kinetic chain, which include muscles that are often neglected from being sedentary throughout the day,” says Will.
Kettlebell training done right builds long, lean muscles, improves strength and power in your upper and lower body, strengthens your core as well as increases coordination, joint mobility and overall endurance. And don’t worry, you’ll definitely feel it the next day!
“It’s a great method for intense strength & metabolic conditioning without any running or jumping involved. You can expect to feel it in muscles you forgot existed,” says Will.
