Female fitness training

Female fitness training

I’ve been a professional trainer since 2007. Since that time, I have facilitated small to large group training, one on one and occasionally a bootcamp. An undeniable fact is that group training classes are mostly participated by women. For this reason, it makes sense that a more focused female fitness training approach be taken. Working those target areas will always be popular. This is the gym fitness approach, get them in, work them hard. A winning formular in any commercial gym.

As a personal trainer I take a similar approach when delivering session to female clients. Once I get an idea of what a client wants, add in the other missing elements and deliver an effective and safe session. The basic fundamentals of strength and fitness are always desirable. Additionally with the ladies the term toned up and shape are important so, all areas of concerned get attention. The lower, belly and arms are certain target areas. As is the glute region. So, what do I use to hit these troublesome areas?

I combine two effective elements that work well together and satisfy most fitness and strength goals.

Why use a kettlebell? 

One approach is a solid mix of kettlebells and boxing for fitness during sessions. In addition to other equipment used, these two systems of exercise are dynamic and known to returning great outcomes. Even on their own.

When it comes to delivering results to female clients have allowed me to hit the mark. With proper consistency and commitment most reaching their weight management, strength, fitness goals.

The benefits of using the kettlebell along with fitness boxing are many. Once you have these tools in your fitness arsenal, plus a healthy nutritional approach reap great benefits. Together with a committed and consistent approach results follow soon after.

With a Kettlebell you are able to move it in more directions that you are not able to with a traditional barbell or dumbbell. You can swing it, flip it, press it and turn it around in various ways. A great tool for working your fitness and conditioning. In the right hands this vintage tool can deliver amazing results during a safe and challenging workout.

As an experienced Instructor I am always mindful of delivering a service that is technically proficient. Therefore, safe for all my clients.  For others who already have a solid training background and are looking at other challenges.

Overall, the kettlebell offers a new level of movement complexity, builds superior coordination improves athleticism.

Tone up with boxing for fitness – For full body female fitness training results

Complimenting the kettlebell is the fitness boxing component. A true boxing program delivers a total body workout on its own and given the mixture of the two we are able to compound the loading safely increasing work capacity. A good sign that you are fitter and can handle more work. Hence, more burned calories during these sometimes-intense workout sessions.

With a few solid pointers on the main punches, having a proper stance along with some basic footwork the overall boxing movement will feel better. Once sorted you a well on the way in ducking, slipping and throwing punching combinations and rightly charge up your heart and lungs. Add an instructor who knows boxing, you will soon appreciate what a solid 2 minutes of one-on-one pad work round does to the heart and lungs. As a combined result, burn even more calories.

I teach the basic punches, stances and movements in a safe and non-intimidating environment. The 1-hour sessions are a workout, not a beat down where you work out smart and to your limit.  As boxing on its own is a full body workout, combining it with kettlebells during a session works the heart, lungs and ramps up conditioning.

Weightlifting and cardio are two separate elements. Work in the ballistic kettlebell exercises and appreciate how well they combine.

Ballistic Kettlebell movements. The calorie burners

Movements like, kettlebell swings, cleans and snatch are a sure-fire way in burning all the calories you want during any session. Even further during the hours post workout.  They are just part of the ballistics movements that you can perform with a kettlebell while hitting those target areas of your hips, thighs and core.

Take for instance a solid swing set with a kettlebell for a minute multiplied by 3-4 sets with minimum rest. A guaranteed exercise to fire up your cardio during a session. It will leave you feeling it way after you are done. With the proper execution the post effect is what also keeps you motivated. You are feeling the hard work you have put in. A clear motivator.

Another approach with a fitter individual is to add on a minute skipping round/set in between swings. It totally changes the effect. It’s up to you to decide how hard. The kettlebell is a simple tool yet works wonders when used properly.

For female fitness training Can I just lift them?

Yes. Low rep kettlebell compound lifts are complimentary to any regular weight training program. Exercises like standing shoulder press, squats (front version) deadlifts, bent over rows and floor presses performed with a kettlebell are excellent choices. Take for example a simple workout like a set of minute swings or cleans performed straight after a set of double kettlebell squats. If performed correctly using the applicable focus and approach you get a full leg burning exercise. Better yet, add in single leg deadlifts for a great finisher.

The kettlebell lifts once learned deliver great results for my female clients, Additionally the combined effect off the bell works the arms and core during several movement. As with boxing once you have been taught proper punching techniques, the use of the hips and your hands, you are ready to push your workouts harder getting results.  A compromised technique will result in an injury. With the proper guidance a properly learned technique is what you want.

Proper form equals results

In delivering results through the use of the bells. You can do a lot with this simple tool. They’re brilliant as a teaching aid for movements leading into other heavy-duty lifts. With proper form the kettlebells are challenging just by working the various kettlebell specific movements they offer. With a sound technique the boxing component compliments this type of training well. No surprise that, kettlebells are a preferred conditioning tool for many athletes involved in the striking sports.

Both elements are worked with a proper execution of technique and appropriate intensity depending on client’s current level of conditioning. I use them to get you fitter, stronger and burn some energy.

As a professional instructor It’s about safety and results first. I use these two together plus additional equipment in getting you the results you are after.

In a safe, private and encouraging atmosphere.
