All courses are mixed ability. You can join if this is your first time or if you have 'swung' for years.
Build strength, stamina and endurance that will hugely complement your yoga practice.
In this 60 minute class run over 4 weeks with Zahir Akram, we will use Kettlebells to create an explosive workout that will improve total body strength, cardiovascular fitness and even flexibility.
Kettlebells look like a cannonball with a handle and if you have not swung one before, you are in for a real treat.
Research has shown that swinging kettlebells can burn up to 20 calories per minute meaning a 60 minute class can burn up to 1200 calories!
You do NOT have to have swung a kettlebell before to do this 4 week course. This course is open to all ability levels.

Usually, kettlebell workouts are built on a high-rep range, meaning that several muscles are worked at once and, if kept at a consistent pace, can offer similar aerobic benefits to HIIT training. During a 2010 study, participants performed a 20-minute kettlebell snatch workout and were found to burn 13-20 calories a minute during the entirety of the workout, equating to "running a 6-minute mile pace.
Similarly, by performing kettlebell circuits three times a week, you’ll pump up your VO2 max by 6 per cent in just under a month, according to the NSCA’s TSAC Report. Using kettlebells, you can also improve your strength, cardio, stability, power, endurance and balance.
The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research also found that kettlebell training contributes to a healthier lower back, owing to the loading and movement patterns.
Kettlebell training is also a great rehabilitation tool. The world renowned back specialist Dr Stuart McGill has said; "Kettlebell work is not for everyone during recovery from injury. However, when used appropriately, it is a unique and irreplaceable training tool".
