For many people in the UK fitness has become a non-essential luxury that they are willing to overlook based on time constraints, work, family and finances. Stephen Aish, founder of The Strength Academy states that exercise should be a cornerstone of life the same as eating breakfast and getting dressed before leaving the house. The kettlebell training expert presents a list of short and long term exercises benefits that can be briefly summarised as follows –

  •     Reduced risk of heart disease
  •     Better stress management and mental health
  •     Protection against osteoporosis
  •     Less dependency on others as people get older
  •     Posture maintenance and correction
  •     An improved sense of well-being and achievement based on goals

The days of needing two hours in the gym to stay healthy are long gone and a new way of training now dominates the fitness and fat loss world. Traditional exercise routines consisted of steady state cardio, however this has been improved upon and people are moving from the bikes, treadmills and cross trainers and engaging in resistance training to increase lean muscle mass and burn more fat based on increased metabolic demands according to The Strength Academy. Workouts are also becoming a lot shorter with as little as 30 minutes providing an effective workout using methods such as interval training and high intensity.

Kettlebell classes and workshops have seen an increase in popularity in recent years as they strengthen the back, activate the core and greatly improve health and fitness. A simple kettlebell circuit of swing, snatch clean, squat and press works wonders for time impoverished clients and can do the same for the general public.

As an example of how effective kettlebell training can be, the swing exercise uses around 80% of the muscles in the body, strengthens the heart and lungs (Farrar et al 2010) based on increased cardiovascular demands and metabolises fat when trained with interval methods at a high intensity.

The Strength Academy is currently providing workshops to ensure people get the education they need in order to take back control and personal responsibility for their health and well-being. Customers are losing up to 5kg per month just by training at home with an instructional DVD.
