Lorna Kleidman responds to an article published by ABC which promotes an innovative use of kettlebells in an exercise developed using mediation and yoga-like concentration.

On February 13, 2013, kettlebell champion Lorna Kleidman offers her thoughts on an exercise using kettlebells to strengthen focus and body, as mentioned in an article published by ABC.

In an article by Lori Corbin, an exercise program has been developed that promoted a way for people to hone the connection between mind and body through the use of kettlebells. The technique is reported to place heavy emphasis on power and endurance-based movements. In order to strengthen the connection between mind and body, the overall objective urges those engaging in the exercise to think about the movements they are performing instead of acting in routine and familiar fashion.

The prevailing idea expressed in the ABC article is that by forcing the person exercising to deliberately think about their movements, both the mind and the body will become stronger. By utilizing various movements through the exercise, the kettlebell user needs to make a conscience effort to adapt while working through the motions.

Fitness expert Lorna Kleidman makes a statement about using kettlebells in a meditative exercise and says, “I have always supported the use of kettlebells, because they lend themselves to a whole host of possibilities.” Kleidman adds, “Incorporating resistance training in a yoga-like exercise should definitely keep you in tune with what you are doing. Yoga, alone, is a serious form of exercise, but using kettlebells with it ensures you’ll get an exercise that makes you feel accomplished.”

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.
