Kettlebells originated in Russia as a form of strength training but have since become a standard, yet technical and demanding, piece of gym equipment. As a dynamic training modality, kettlebells are especially beneficial for developing core function, active flexibility and motor skills such as co-ordination and balance. Proper form and technique is crucial to achieving the full benefits from this equipment and avoiding injury.
I am qualified in the instruction of kettlebell training sessions. Kettlebells comprise, where appropriate, part of a personal training or circuit training programme. However, they can also comprise an individual workout on their own, working every part of the body in a functional manner not always achieved by standard gym equipment. Training with me will allow you to take advantage of this expertise and ensure novelty, learning and variety within your programme.
As well as being an effective, functional and adaptable training and conditioning tool, kettlebells are easily transported and no other or special equipment is required. Accordingly, I bring the workout to you.
I am a qualified Kettlercise® instructor. Kettlercise® is a great workout with friends as a private small group class. One-to-one and pairs classes are also available as part of a personal training programme, or completely standalone, at the session rates.
What is Kettlercise®?
Kettlercise® is a kettlebell fat-burning workout designed to shape and sculpt your body quickly. It is fun, fast, easy to follow, safe and super-effective!
Kettlercise® was established in 2009 and very quickly became established as the leading kettlebell fitness programme with large numbers of participants world-wide taking part in regular Kettlercise® classes delivered by a network of elite and certified instructors.
A class covers a huge range of 37 kettlebell exercises, ranging from basic moves to more advanced techniques, from high energy pulse-raisers to being able to place extra emphasis on target muscle groups such as the abdominals, gluteal muscles, arms and thighs. A professional warm-up and cool down are also included. You do not have to train with huge kettlebells for it to be effective, which is why Kettlercise® is so versatile, accessible and effective.
The benefits of a Kettlercise® class include:
• fast results;
• a total body transformation programme based on fat loss and toning;
• increased lean, toned muscle for a more sculpted appearance;
• no need for a gym membership;
• destroying the myth that you need heavy weights to get the results you want;
• step-by-step clear instruction and hand-held coaching through 37 kettlebell exercises;
• all levels of fitness from beginner to advanced are covered; and
• it is FUN!

"Having researched the benefits of Kettlercise® as a mixed cardio and strength-based exercise programme, I soon realised that Olly's classes were different other instructors. There was more energy in the room and Olly took time to get to know his participants so that he could give personalised feedback and encourage you to get more out of the session.
Joining his outdoor class gave me the opportunity to add fresh air into the mix and meet a group of new friends. The sense of achievement after a session in wind and rain just adds to the all-body workout."
