According to an article published by the Courier-Journal, while CrossFit and mud runs were on the rise in 2012, the New Year is expected to see a lot of boot camps and fitness options for seniors. Lorna Kleidman adds to the list by affirming the benefits of kettlebells.

On January 15, kettlebells champion Lorna Kleidman reacts to new fitness trends and exercises that are expected to rise in popularity in 2013, as reported by the Courier-Journal.

Last year, the fitness world saw a rise in many new trends, including CrossFit, mud runs and the use of social media to stay motivated. But what will 2013 bring? The American Council on Exercise (ACE) released a study aimed at predicting which fitness trends will be popular in 2013. It surveyed “more than 1,700 certified personal trainers, exercise scientists and other experts from across the nation,” reports an article from the Courier-Journal.

The Courier-Journal stated that yoga, personal training, fitness boxing and boot camps are among the fitness programs that on the rise. According to the article, one important part of predicting fitness trends is predicting what the baby boomer generation will adopt into their exercise routine in the coming months. As the baby boomers get older, fitness programs aimed at seniors will be on the rise.

“Kettlebells are a form of exercise that can offer seniors an easy, fun and, most importantly, an effective way to work out,” said fitness expert Lorna Kleidman. “I have seen a huge rise in kettlebells over recent years among people of all ages and I think in 2013 we will see it become even more popular.”

Kleidman adds that kettlebells are very easy to use even if you have no experience with them. “They put a focus on both power and stability, which are important for staying active and injury free,” she states. “Seniors, as well as people of any age, can use any weight kettlebell they feel comfortable with.”

Lorna Kleidman is a Three-Time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovative methods used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy to use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
