High Level Fitness Offers a New Year’s Resolution That Can Last

Kettlebell training is a brutally efficient yet accessible exercise system. Those making New Year’s resolutions to improve their fitness will find a more realistic approach with this one stop fitness tool.

Dec. 23, 2008 - PRLog -- Gary Berenbroick will be teaching his fundamentals of kettlebell exercise workshop on January 10, 2009 at High Level Fitness. He will teach the six core kettlebell exercises, which are the swing, get-up, clean, front squat, press, and snatch. During well needed break periods, Gary will also give three lectures about creating balanced work-outs, high intensity sessions for fat loss, and minimalist programs for busy people. The goal of this workshop is for its participants to leave with ample knowledge about kettlebell exercises, and how to safely perform them so that students may continue a strength/conditioning program on their own in the coming year. Gary is  offering this workshop early in the year to give people an opportunity to kick start their New Year’s resolutions with an effective, entertaining and addictive exercise program that will endure.

A Cannonball with a handle

A Kettlebell is a metal ball, usually made from iron, with a handle. It can be used in many ways, like a dumbbell, but its unique shape offers the opportunity for more challenging movements. These movements involve the entire body rather than single joints, making kettlebell work-outs shorter than ones on strength training machines.  Just because kettlebell sessions are brief, they are not easy. Villanova resident and High Level Fitness client, Sally, shares, “In 30 minutes I am begging for it to be over and am crying, ‘uncle!’ I would not have believed that so much can be attained in such a short amount of time.” Kettlebell exercises yield the benefits of increased flexibility, strength and conditioning all in one session. They are a one stop fitness tool that doesn’t need to be plugged in.

From the East comes a man with a message

Ten years ago, Pavel Tsatsouline’s article, “Vodka, Pickle Juice, Kettlebell Lifting and Other Russian Pastimes", appeared in Milo Magazine’s December, 1998 issue. In that article he introduced the American strength training community to Russian Kettlebells. Shortly afterward, he partnered with John DuCane of Dragon Door Publications, Inc. and released the book, The Russian Kettlebell Challenge. Pavel and John now offer a variety of kettlebells ranging from 10 pounds up to 106 pounds through their website, www.dragondoor.com, and a vast library of kettlebell books and DVDs. He also started the first kettlebell instructor certification that is now held in three different countries.  Gary Berenbroick attended this certification in September, 2006 as a candidate and then again in June, 2008 as an assistant instructor.

Favorite of athletes and celebrities

“I have had the luxury of being taught by many coaches in my athletic career and Gary ranks among the top for knowledge of his craft and, more importantly, being able to motivate and teach his students proper technique as to avoid injuries and implementation of a workout that your body really feels,” says John, a former college football player. Other athletes who are using kettlebells include LaDainian Tomlinson, Lance Armstrong, Heath Evans and members of the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens. Other celebrities are swinging kettlebells as well, like actors Sylvester Stallone, Katherine Heigl, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Cattrall and Penelope Cruz.

Good for all

Not all people who train with kettlebells are superstar athletes or Hollywood heart throbs. Most of the clients who train with kettlebells at High Level Fitness are not athletes. They are busy people who do not have hours to spend at the gym. They are from all different age groups and fitness levels. In fact, people with less exercise experience sometimes have an easier time picking up the kettlebell exercises because, as Gary puts it, “they have less bad exercise habits to unlearn.”
