Different from most traditional training and workout styles, exercises with kettlebells are higher in repetitions and are a higher intensity workout. Kettlebell workouts increase muscle endurance and promote muscle groups to work together. It is important to have a certified kettlebell trainer teach proper technique, because the use of weighted momentum exercises without proper knowledge can lead to injury. Expanding your client base and career with ASFA’s Kettlebell instruction certification is a great way to add some intensity and endurance to your workouts.
Kettlebell exercises involve swinging motions that can raise the kettlebell high above the head all the way to ground level. These wide range movements develop a strong and functional core; additionally, kettlebell workouts build strength and cardiovascular endurance.

Kettlebells can also hold an advantage for someone whose schedule is constrained. Because of the small compact size of a kettlebell, it can be purchased and then exercises can take place at home. One weight can be used in almost all workouts and the only thing needed is the applicable space to perform the workout.
