 If you hate gyms or "can’t find the time " to exercise , you’re not alone!

 

If you are a serious athlete who has reached a plateau , wants to cross-train and eliminate weaknesses , is injured , or just needs a good old-fashioned challenge or change of pace, then you should seriously consider the (unfair!) lifelong benefits that kettlebells offer.

 

If you have a “bad back” , “poor posture” or suffer from “tension” - kettlebells will fix it!

 

If you are a pregnant woman or are trying to regain or improve your pre-pregnancy state , Kettlebells are safe and highly effective.

All ladies should bookmark the following site for the best in well researched women’s fitness and health advice.

If you are an older person or athlete who has forgotten how to play and to move efficiently and gracefully , appropriately sized kettlebells provide  a convenient and effective do-it-yourself solution to regaining lost conditioning and skills. The benefits immediately translate into the ability to participate in a wide range of sporting and other activities . Don’t fall for the “I’m too old” excuse.

 

I apologise for the occasional use of the words “training” and “workout”. They are ingrained in modern culture .Please substitute “play”as necessary. You can turn work into play. It’s just a matter of attitude.

 

 

The following from GoAnimal is a superb book about rediscovering how to play and develop uninhibited natural exercise habits and abilities and I can highly recommend it.
