I love the Kettlebell Training Class in our Studio with Ralph Brooks.
You learn how to use a kettlebell in the StrongFirst style – sometimes referred to a hardstyle – first introduced to the west by Pavel Tsatsouline. Do not let the macho-sounding name put you off.
Hardstyle kettlebell training is all about good quality technique over quantity. Good technique builds mobility, strength and conditioning with safety above all else. Strength is a skill to be practised. A skill you will practice as you transform your fitness.
Yes, you will find Ralph’s beginners’ classes challenging and fun. But no, they’re not aerobic, “feel the burn” workout sessions. During each class you progressively build on the skills introduced at previous sessions as you learn to safely perform three fundamental kettlebell lifts; the Turkish Get-up, the Goblet Squat and the Hardstyle Swing
