Ket­tle­bell tolls for any­one keen on world-class work­out

NT News - - NEWS - NATASHA EMECK

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.
