Kettlebell Training
The Kettlebell is a weight with a handle, which it is thought, originated in Russia, where it first appeared in the Russian dictionary in 1709. Back then it was used as a counter weight for farm equipment, however it soon migrated to becoming a tool used for developing strength endurance, which would probably just have been considered fitness at the time. This training, over time, became something that was also featured at shows, with a selection of difficult moves used to measure strength in these local competitions. Recently, this sport has made it back in to Fitness, and so FASTER has designed a course to show how you can develop different exercises for this sport, to develop your endurance and techniques in different ways to improve you and your clients ability in the sport. In fitness, it will show the faster exercise development in process.


The GRIPR is ideal for individual exercises but, as it’s made to withstand the toughest of treatment by using micro grade steel sand within a double stitched neoprene bag.  It is  also perfect for small group training sessions where it can be used for dynamic throwing and explosive catching drills. Progressive and suitable for a wide range of users. The steel sand displaces rapidly, so bags can be placed on the arms, legs and feet.
Trains deep core muscles while adding an exciting and unpredictable element to your workouts – your body never knows what’s coming next. GRIPR’s work as a Momentum Tool because of the unique shape.  GRIPR’s work as a Gravity Tool by offering a lot of different weights.
