For those of you who haven’t heard of this sort of training, kettlebells are iron weights shaped like cannonballs with handles. They are used for ballistic exercises that focus on endurance, strength, balance and cardio. As a young woman about to attempt what sounds like weight-lifting, I am naturally concerned about looking like Madonna. Yet the aim is not to build huge muscle but to improve fitness and core strength. Toning up and losing fat!
As this is a bootcamp, it’s not just the exercise but the dietary intake that is included too. I am slightly nervous about giving up caffeine, alcohol and wheat as part of the month long detox.
A small class of us will be working out alongside trainer Christian Vila, who has given me his word that there will be noticeable fat loss by the end. I hope I am not the only one who is new to kettlebells! I will be regularly blogging my progress on the Latest7 website, so that you can get a realistic idea as to what it’s like and eventually, what my overall results are.
There’s still a few places in the class, so if you think you’ve got what it takes then book now. Check out Latest 7, out on 3rd January for more!
