Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) March 20, 2006
As more and more people are hearing about not a new, but an OLD exercise device called a kettlebell, demand is rising for certified Russian kettlebell instructors. It seems that there are more than a few men (and women!) willing to step up to the plate and go through the intense three day training and certification process.
A kettlebell is basically a cast iron sphere with a handle which comes in a variety of sizes and weights. These range from 9 pounds all the way up to an insane 106 pounds apiece. It's an "old time strongman" type of exercise tool and was long used in Russia to train athletes. In 2001 Pavel Tsatsouline (a former physical training instructor for the Soviet Special Forces) introduced Russian kettlebell training to the United States. After a slow start, over the last year his training methods have exploded in popularity, appearing on television and have been adopted by the FBI, police forces across the country and professional athletes as a method for increasing strength and getting in peak physical condition.
Up until now there have been only 3 certification workshops held per year, but with the demand increasing, and with the prior 3 workshops all selling out 6 months in advance, an additional kettlebell workshop will be held this year. Registration has opened up for the October 2006 class, and it's highly recommended that prospective instructors get their reservations in soon.
