Club Kettlebell is a written online program and kettlebell membership that will help you train to become a stronger and more agile human. In Club KB you will learn to transform your workouts into intentional training sessions.
My goal is to help you become and see yourself as a stronger, more powerful adult athlete because yes, we can and should all move like and feel like athletes. As humans, our fitness routines should enhance the quality of our lives & help us do the things we love in life for longer.
The workouts in Club KB are programmed based on functional training principles. This means every session will train the body as one unit, encourage you to move heavy weight, elevate the heart rate, enhance your mobility + stability, and allow you to practice skills that will help you enhance the quality of your life.
Club Kettlebell includes- ‣4 strength and conditioning sessions + 1 active recovery session per week ‣Access to a 1:1 private chat with me, group chat with others training with you, demo videos for every exercise, and written and verbal cues for every exercise ‣Ability to record and track your workouts so you can track yourself getting stronger and more conditioned

HIIT ~12 minutes
HIIT workouts get a bad rep, but they are great to do for conditioning, 1-2x/week, at short durations are effective and safe. When you get to choose what you do, you will enjoy it more. Pick something that challenges you and that you can have fun with. Choose to complete this by running on a treadmill, running outside, rowing, on the ski erg, swimming, walking/speed walking, indoor cycling bike, step climber, assault bike, etc. You can literally do these intervals on any equipment or outside. If you are not "running", still move at a "run" pace for :40s, think 75%-80% of your max, and a "sprint" pace for :20s, think 90% of your all out max. Prep for the higher intensity with a 3 min warm up at 30-50% of your max. E.g. if you choose to run, you would take this as a 3 minute jog. Complete 8 rounds of intervals on your choice of equipment or outside: 30s sprints, 1:00 walk Alternative option with bells: :30s medium bell 2-handed swings, 1:00 rest Finish 3-5 minutes cool down/walk.
