Ready for a workout that burns up to 1200 calories an hour, works every muscle in your body, and is a killer fat burner?

Kettlebells aren’t new. Actually kettlebells are as old as medicine balls when it comes to working out – just ask your grandfather. They are those funny looking iron balls with the handles on them. We’re sure you’ve seen them at the gym and wondered: What the hell am I supposed to do with those things?

We were confused too, until we saw the light.

TAKE A KETTLEBELL CLASS!

Using kettlebells hits all the major workout departments: cardio, weight training and fat burning. It’s your one stop full body workout. Gone are the days where you need to run on the treadmill, then lift weights, and somehow fit in a fat burning class during the week. These sexy little bells are better than spinning, better than kickboxing, better than just about everything else. The American Council on Exercise  (ACE) said they burned  “20.2 calories a minute! That’s off the charts. It’s equivalent to running a 6 minute mile for 45 minutes.”

With strange movements called things like “get ups” and “snatches” you’ll be huffing and puffing and getting your ass smacked sideways by possibly the most challenging workout of your life. We speak from experience, and we’re still hurting in the way only a true workout can provide. Yes you’ll feel silly doing it, yes you will use muscles you didn’t know you have, yes you will be sore afterwards and yes you will wonder why you haven’t tried this earlier.

With all those calories burned, we give you full permission to grab a cheeseburger with fries afterward – you’ve earned it!
