230“The fundamental RKC Hardstyle Swing so closely mirrors the muscular activation patterns of the golf swing it is almost scary. Both are full body multi-joint¬†movements that move a relatively light object to a pre stretch loaded position, then the object is smoothly accelerated using a very powerful hip drive, creating tremendous ballistic force, the object reaches an impact point where all the forces are concentrated, then the object is eccentrically brought back to rest.¬† The kettlebell swing and the golf swing are two of the most explosive movements in all of sport. Both movements use the tension/relaxation performance cycle to create maximal power. Strength and speed make up a powerful kettlebell swing as well as a powerful golf swing.” – Corey Howard

This is a great article that clearly explains why golfers MUST be giving Kettlebell Training a go!¬† Read on, then call me ūüôā¬† ¬†Let’s make this upcoming season your best yet!¬†

Looking for an efficient way to get lean, powerful, strong, flexible, focused & stronger than you thought was even possible?  Then you need to be introduced to Kettlebell Training!

Becoming fast known as one the best ways to burn fat, build lean muscle, increase flexibility and sharpen your focus in a very short amount of time, Kettlebell Training is increasing in popularity for very good reason!

Elite special forces, Firefighters, Police, etc, as well as top athletes, from MMA fighters to golfers to NFL football players are all using Kettlebell Training – they want to see results, fast, and they do – and you can too!

Agatsu-ImageI love Kettlebell Training, use it myself extensively, teach Kettlebell Lessons, use it in client programs and in my classes and bootcamps, because it’s fun, extremely effective and doesn’t feel like you’re exercising – it feels like a sport – and once you’re hooked, you want MORE! ¬†I am a Certified Agatsu Kettlebell Trainer as well as being a BCRPA Trainer, all programming I design¬†is safe and effective for all fitness levels.¬† One of my favorite things about the Kettlebell is that every participant can go at their own pace – with a ‘bell that is just right for them, so everyone can get a great workout at their fitness and¬†comfort level.

At this workshop, we will learn to properly swing, as well as learn and perfect some basic accessory exercises that will support and improve your swing, like squatting, hip hinging, etc as well as go through some great drills to work on our joint mobility and flexibility.
