Welcome to the Vagbond Kettlebell Blog

The kettlebell is one of the most effective conditioning tools out there for training all-around fitness. It is literally like having a "gym in your hand".

Kettlebells enable dynamic loading of muscle groups, help generate power from the hips - which is essential for athletic performance- and help build strength and stability in the back and shoulders.

Here we will be posting schedules and workouts for the Vagabond KB specialty class along with other helpful, KB-related info.
