Kettlebell Swing Clinic

We are excited to offer a Kettlebell Swing Clinic at Peak Fitness for You!

Under proper instruction kettlebell training can be very beneficial.  On the other hand, unsupervised kettlebell training can be hazardous to the health of the beginning kettlebell trainee.

According to the National Academy of Sports Medicine, kettlebell training has many benefits:

  • Enhanced athleticism, coordination, and balance

  • Increased mental focus and physical stamina

  • Increased oxygen uptake

  • Increased total body conditioning as opposed to isolation training

  • Recruitment of the posterior chain (calves, hamstring complex, gluteal muscles, spinal erectors)

  • Increased core stability and muscular endurance

  • Increased strength and power

  • Improved grip strength

  • Increased metabolic demands and caloric expenditure

Ken Furuya  has been training with kettlebells since 2007.  Ken qualified as a Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification (HKC) Instructor in 2010 (HKC is part of the RKC school of strength).  The certifying instructor was Dan John, world renown strength and conditioning coach.

The class will consist of the swing.  The kettlebell swing is an “athletic fat-burner”.  It increases your metabolic rate.  Dan John on the metabolic kettlebell swing, “The metabolic hit of a correct set of swings is going to be shocking. It’s one of the best conditioning exercises I know. And according to a new study coming out of the University of Wisconsin, the kettlebell snatch – which is quite similar, metabolically speaking – is “equivalent to running a six-minute mile pace” and “burns as many calories as cross-country skiing up hill at a fast pace.”  We will also utilize corrective drills which will include proper squatting and deadlifting techniques as well.
