Frequently encountered Questions and concerns
Q: What the heck?!
A: Kettlebell Sport ("Girevoy Sport" or "гиревой спорт") is a type of endurance weightlifting that originated in the USSR in the middle of the 20th century. At the professional level it involves lifting one or two kettlebells for 10 minutes (without putting them down!), and the winner is decided by the number of lifts completed. It is a competition of skill, mental focus, endurance, and strength.
Q: But I'm not an athlete! Competition? No way.
A: The sport is actually very accessible, and athletes of all ages and body types are well-represented. Training and events are warm, inclusive, and the community is supportive of every lifter, regardless of their level. That being said, not everybody competes. The training protocols developed for the sport apply themselves well to any person looking to increase their general fitness with a safe, fun, and engaging activity.
Q: I just want to work out.
A: Totally! We love to work out, too. But let me ask you: in the last year of "working out", did you improve? In what way? How do you know? Training for Kettlebell Sport gives us a way to measure our progress and pursue performance improvement in a structured way. The constant variation in other systems might be fun for a while, but nothing beats having a plan and knowing at the end that you are better than when you started.
Q: No, I said I DON'T want to work out.
A: ... and we feel your pain on this one, too. We approach kettlebell lifting almost as an art -- we're interested in the efficiency, power, and grace of performing these movements well. If you're bored with other fitness routines, you might find there is an extra dimension to the kettlebell lifts that draws you in. And when you're struggling, you'll find that our community of kettlebell nerds will keep you excited about coming back.
