Kettlebell tolls for anyone keen on world-class workout
IF you’re looking to take your workout to new heights, swing by a kettlebell workshop being held in Casuarina today.
Edge Health Club is holding an induction class at 10am to teach people how to correctly use and get the most out of the cast iron weight the next time they hit the gym
It will be hosted by Territory trainer Taz Dunston with help from a special guest, Jad Marinovic, who is a world champion in kettlebell sport, also known as Girevoy.
Manager Simon Johnson said the great thing about kettlebells – which are basically a cannonball with a handle – is that in just a few swings you can get a total body workout.
“The moves are strengthening your upper and lower body and your core, as well as giving you a bonus cardio burn – all at the same time,” he said.
“People get a lot of use out of them for a whole body workout which is why they’re so popular, but they’re still a bit new to Darwin.
“We’ve noticed some people can still be a bit hesitant to use them in the gym because they don’t know how to use them properly, so hopefully with a class like this one we can help people out, with the help of a world champ no less.” Classes cost $20 for members and $30 for non-members.
