If you have been following my blog it’s no secret that I absolutely have fallen in love with kettlebells.   To me kettlebells offer freedom in my training.

They offer the freedom to:

Workout anywhere

The versatility and small size of kettlebells have allowed me to create my gym in my tiny living room.  My neighbors down stairs absolutely love this  (not really).

Because of their small size kettlebells are my favorite workout accessory. 

 I love taking them and training everywhere.  Some places include in the street, at the park, and even at the beach because after all “suns out, guns out”.

The best part is none of these gyms make me pay a membership fee ;P

Train in a variety of ways and just allow my body to move naturally (press, row, hinge, squat, carry, floor work, and twist)

Kettlebells provide access to many exercises that are excellent for developing strength, conditioning, joint stability, mobility, and burning fat.

They allow you to get creative with movement.  The kettlebell has a beautiful way of flowing around the body making it easy to hit every muscles without having to travel to a ton of different machines.
