Are Kettlebell Workouts In Classes Your Best Fitness Option?
Today’s question is whether to consider kettlebell workouts in classes as your best choice for fitness, yes or no? It’s a great question. Unfortunately, there is no right or wrong answer to this question. It’s a decision that you will have to make on your own based on your personality.
Some people love working out in groups, especially women because of the social aspect. Kettlebell workouts for women in groups may just be a viable fitness option. The group vibe and nature of a class workout really motivates them and strikes a chord with them. Other people may hate working out with others and prefer to train in solitude away from the eyes of others.
The fact of the matter is that wherever you train, the results will be the same as long as you are doing the correct exercises with the right intensity. Personally, I feel that kettlebell workouts are best done alone in the privacy of your own home.
The reason for this is that kettlebell workouts are best done barefoot because the load bearing force is dispersed into the ground through your feet. Most shoes have soles that are too soft for this.
Training in a class will mean that you have to wear shoes.
There is also the aspect of safety for kettlebell workouts
I would never feel safe with a whole group of people swinging weights that look like bowling balls with handles. I wouldn’t be able to concentrate on my workout having to constantly keep an eye on my surroundings.
On the flip side, if you are a beginner with no idea how to use a kettlebell, a few classes might be a good idea for you to grasp the basics of handling a kettlebell and you will learn a few moves too. So, it all depends on the individual.
If you do not know squat about kettlebells (pun intended), and do not wish to embarrass yourself in classes, you may just purchase an eBook or a DVD dedicated to kettlebell workouts training. These will be just as helpful as any class. No worries.
If you do decide to join a class, make sure that the instructor is certified and knows what he is doing. The kettlebell can be a dangerous apparatus to use if you do not understand the mechanics of the movements.
Unlike conventional weights, the jerking, hip thrusts and swinging movements increase the possibility of a strained ligament or muscle tear if done wrongly. Normal dumbbells and barbells have more or less rigid moves so they are in a way ‘safer’ than kettlebells.
Benefits Of Kettlebell Workouts
Now the point to take away from this article is that kettlebell training has tons of benefits from fat loss to muscle toning and even your co-ordination improves. However, it does not matter if you do it in a class or at home. Your body does not care about the surroundings. It only responds to the workouts.
It’s all a matter of choice. The real effectiveness of the training lies in your ability to be consistent and stay the course. Exercise is supposed to be a good habit. Try and get some daily. Even 20 minutes a day with your kettlebell or even a quick bodyweight program will do wonders for your health. In the end, it’s only this that matters.
So no matter where you train having a program that will provide proven results is very helpful and useful. CLICK HERE for the Kettlebell Revolution program.
