WHY THE KETTLEBELL?
The center of gravity is constantly changing, but your core is essential and acts as your center point to the body for proper function. The kettlebell assists with identifying a foundation causing the body stabilizers and connective tissue to fire harder. In essence , the kettlebell teaches you how to activate your core and stabilizers to allow your bigger muscles to express their strength. Based on my ten years of coaching experience, I have concluded that if all people hired a highly qualified kettlebell instructor to learn the fundamental movements, their physical health and performance would be optimized.
