5 Places To Learn Body-Shredding Kettlebell Workouts In Montreal

What's not to love about kettlebells? Don't be fooled by their dorky appearance. Kettlebells may look like something you use to make tea, but when done right, kettlebell training is one of the most effective workouts you could ever put your muscles through. They pack quite a punch, in fact they're favoured as a physical conditioning tool by the Russian military because they adapt perfectly to short, high-intensity workouts. And, if crowded gyms aren't your thing, they'll barely take up space in your home. (Buh-bye, elliptical machine.)

The tricky bit? Making sure you're doing it correctly.  So, once you're ready to join the kettlebell revolution, consider one of these amazing training facilities.
