The fastest-growing exercise trend in the US revolves around sinister-looking black cannonballs with handles, known to the hardcore fitness enthusiasts who swear by them as kettlebells. With recent media attention that has ranged from The Today Show, Time and Newsweek to Rolling Stone the kettlebell surge into the mainstream culminates this March with the first ever National Kettlebell Convention in Las Vegas.

St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) January 5, 2005 – Since kettlebell author and expert Pavel Tsatsouline and his publisher, John Du Cane of Dragon Door Publications, introduced the Russian art of kettlebell exercise to the US, kettlebells have become a mainstay physical training and conditioning tool for elements of the US Marines, US Special Forces, US Secret Service, SWAT, professional athletes, champion powerlifters and now even Hollywood stars like Penelope Cruz and Ed O’Neil.

What’s the appeal of kettlebells – to such a broad spectrum not only of professionals who rely on their bodies for their living but regular folk looking for the ideal workout? According to publisher John Du Cane it has come down to the fast results:

“When someone rapidly improves their physical conditioning, while just as rapidly losing body fat and gaining sleek, hard muscle, then they get hooked…” John Du Cane continues, “Americans have been seeking the Holy Grail of that ideal, classically muscled form, for a long, long time with very mixed results. Kettlebells give even the average person a chance to dramatically enhance their physique in just minutes a day. Who wouldn’t want that?”

Kettlebell practitioners approach their kettlebells with an almost cult-like fervor. The March 2005 National Kettlebell Convention gives these kettlebell exercisers a chance to share their enthusiasm with the hundreds of like-minded souls expected to flood into Las Vegas for two days of contests, seminars and networking with some of the world’s leading experts in physical development and performance.
