Hello Everyone! I know it has been a little while since I have written anything and I do apologize. Here at Nebraska Kettlebell, we have been very busy getting orientations and classes started up. It has been a tremendous start! We owe it all to our members having trust in us to deliver the results that they desire.

For those of you who are currently going to a gym and working out, but not getting the results you desire, here is a little breakdown of the advantages of being a member of Nebraska Kettlebell over going to a “traditional” gym setting.

1) Equipment

Traditional Gym – Machines, benches, cardio equipment and dumbbells make up the majority of the equipment here. The only problem is why in the world would I have someone who is already seated all day long, get in their car and drive to the gym only to sit down and perform exercises on a machine or bench? As Americans we have become very uncoordinated due to this very fact (the sitting and the training seated). When we exercise we should be practicing MOVEMENT, then when the time arrives that we need to have the proper coordination to perform a movement (example: shoveling snow, picking up a heavy object, slipping on ice, playing sports) we do it so in a way that is functional not dysfuntional.

Nebraska Kettlebell – NO machines, no cardio equipment. Body weight exercises, kettlebells, ropes and TRX. All of this equipment works on proper coordination. Getting you moving correctly, so you do so when you need to. You will also notice that those aches and pains you thought you just had to deal with will improve as well because you are re-teaching your body proper movement. Remember our motto:

MOVE BETTER, FEEL BETTER, LOOK BETTER.

2) Instruction

Traditional Gym – NONE or you have to pay extra for a personal trainer

Nebraska Kettlebell – Our first priority is on technique and there will never ever be more than a 10 to 1 participant to instructor ratio. This allows us to make sure your technique is on target. Remember its not about the kettlebell, its about proper movement. All our equipment just helps us to reinforce the proper movement skills. Plus, when technique is at its best you greatly diminish your chances of suffering from an injury, as a matter of fact, you will become more injury prone in other activities. Our cost is way less per session than hiring a personal trainer.

3) Atmosphere

Traditional Gym – Little stuffy at times, have to wait for your favorite machine for someone who is going to sweat all over it, sometimes a little intimidating, crowded.

Nebraska Kettlebell – We have a 15 person maximum for classes, so no stuffiness or crowd. Everyone works together in a team like atmosphere. We find that this team like atmosphere brings out the best in our members. Everyone supports one another and this helps atmosphere allows our members to work harder than they ever expected. Much better than working out on your own.

4) Programming

Traditional Gym – You may do the same weights and reps each time you come in that they may have given you when you did your first complimentary training session or you just do what comes to mind when you walk in through the door

Nebraska Kettlebell – First, all members are required to perform a functional movement screen during their orientation, this allows us to develop an individualized warm up and cool down to allow you to workout at your best, and also allows us to understand how are members move and what skills we need to develop throughout their progression. All workouts are then developed with our members in hand. Everyone works at their own pace and will perform the exercises that allows them to succeed in the proper progression.

5) Time

Traditional Gym – You spend 30-60minutes performing strength training then try and find a spot on a cardio machine to get your 30-60 minutes of cardio. Who has the time for this? Also, how bored are you?

Nebraska Kettlebell – Our workouts are designed to be 40-50 minutes long that include a warm up and a cool down. We promise you that you will get the workout you want in half the time. Also the 45 minute workout has you paying close attention to your technique and you will get the most out of your body. With long cardio and/or strength sessions your mind can tend to wander and that is when technique fails.

6) Results

Traditional Gym – Are you getting the results that you want? If you are then terrific! Keep doing what you are doing. If you are not, then isn’t it time for a change?

Nebraska Kettlebell – The American Council on Exercise just published a study that shows that kettlebell exercises like the swing can produce your body to burn calories at a rate of up to 20 calories per minute! That is like trying to run a 6 minute mile pace on the treadmill. This type of training will get you the results that you want. Whether it is weight loss, sports performance, or pre and post rehabilitation you will get the results you desire!

IF you are interested in learning more about what we here at Nebraska Kettlebell have to offer. Sign up for a kettlebell orientation. With that orientation you get a functional movement screen and 2 weeks of bootcamp at no charge. At the end of the 2 weeks you will recieve a workbook that has the following (we call it your “Strategy for Success”):

  • outline of the functional movement screen
  • your functional movement screen and what it is telling us
  • corrective guidelines to work on any imbalances that may exist
  • exercise handouts of those corrective exercises
  • exercise handouts of the foundational kettlebell exercises for you to practice at home
  • nutritional information from PRECISION NUTRITION.

What do you have to lose? Give us a shot and if you decide that Nebraska Kettlebell does not provide you an exhilarating workout and will put you on the right track to your goals then you are not out any money and you also leave with an understanding of how your body moves and a plan to get you moving better.

TIRED OF LOOKING LIKE THE AVERAGE AMERICAN? THEN TRAIN LIKE A RUSSIAN!
