Looking for the best workout tools in a gym? Just ask a trainer what they use. For Personal Trainer Ryan Thomson his go to tool has been the kettlebells for the past nine years.
"It really changed me. I was losing weight and I was getting stronger. It wasn't that I needed to lose the weight. I just happened to shrink a little bit more."
The results he saw using kettlebells blew his mind and now it has become a staple in his clients workouts as well. Ryan says that a kettlebell is a great tool because it works every muscle in your body. Even when you are just doing a simple swing. Not only does the kettlebell get you a complete cardiovascular workout in a shorter amount of time, but you are improving your shoulder and back strength as well as building endurance.
Something missing from your kettlebell workout...balance. By incorporating the BOSU® into your kettlebell workout you will be getting one of the best combos out there. The major benefits you get with with a BOSU® is strengthening your ligaments and tendons. Ryan tells us that balance is also something that he struggles with, and the BOSU® helps tremendously.
This piece of equipment also acts as a secret weapon to help trainers pinpoints clients trouble spots. "It really helps to find what's going on with somebody. If I put them in a push up position I can tell where the instabilities are fairly easy. Or a squat is really going to call them out on certain areas where they need some work."
The kettlebell / BOSU® workout. Two simple pieces of equipment that will help you reap major benefits. I call that a match made in workout heaven.
