Ket­tle Calling


India Today - - COVER STORY -

Sam­rat Sen, 32, a for­mer PR pro­fes­sional, was al­ways pas­sion­ate about fit­ness.“I was into kick­box­ing and mar­tial arts and us­ing the ket­tle­bell as well. How­ever, I started tak­ing it more se­ri­ously as a sport when I be­gan to ben­e­fit from ket­tle­bell train­ing,” said Sen. Ket­tle­bell lift­ing as a sport is a test of “en­durance since it re­lies on an equal mix of strength, en­durance, flex­i­bil­ity and car­dio­vas­cu­lar stamina. Also called en­durance lift­ing, the sport re­quires lifters to com­plete as many rep­e­ti­tions as pos­si­ble within 10 min­utes. Sen has rep­re­sented the coun­try in this sport in Thai­land and Malaysia.

But Sen is not just a ket­tle­ball ath­lete. He is also a Mas­ter Ket­tle­bell Coach as well as a cer­ti­fied an­i­mal flow coach and a func­tional trainer. If he were to have a fit­ness mantra it would be “lengthen your front and strengthen your back.” His out­fit is called Corefit, which as the name sug­gests, is about fo­cus­ing on the core.

Sen be­lieves in a com­pletely per­son­alised ap­proach where he de­signs dif­fer­ent pro­grammes for peo­ple of dif­fer­ent fit­ness lev­els and dif­fer­ent tar­gets. His big­gest suc­cess? “One of my stu­dents, a 53 kg mother of one, who couldn’t lift 12 kg ket­tle­bells, re­cently rep­re­sented In­dia and lifted two 16 kg ket­tle­bells in tan­dem,” says Sen.
