Kettlebell & XCO training

Specialist Kettlebell & XCO instruction in Kent

Nfit specialises in Kettlebell and XCO workouts - both proven to burn body fat extremely effectively.

Kettlebells work so well because their weight hangs below the handle, making them more difficult to control than a standard dumbbell. This means you have to work harder, but you get more out of the exercise. The extra muscle activity required means your body will use more calories. Research shows that 30 minutes of kettle bell training is equivalent to 1 hour in the gym.

Training with the XCO trainers couldn't be more versatile. XCO trainers will increase your performance and burn more calories when used as part of your cardiovascular workout. Using a variety of dynamic all-over body exercises, XCO training will enhance and improve muscle tone and weight loss.

Kettlebells

Kettlebells are a fantastic tool for anyone who doesn't have a lot of time and wants to get maximum results in the form of fat loss and stamina in minimum time. There is no better way to get fit and burn fat than with 24 minutes of high repetition kettlebell swings, cleans and snatches.

Kettlebells are one of the oldest types of conditioning equipment. Kettlebell-like weights with handles were used over 2000 years ago by athletes in ancient Greece.

A kettlebell resembles a cannonball with a handle and the advantage of training with a kettlebell over traditional weights lies not only in its versatility, but also in the dynamic nature of the possible movements.

The two-handed swing is the most basic kettlebell movement - this involves squatting down holding the weight and using the legs and hips to drive the it up and in front of the body. During this functional drill every muscle is integrated and activated from legs to core to arms.
