The Kettlebell-Elliptical Killer Cardio Combo

You’ve seen them together in commercial and residential gyms everywhere for years—probably at opposite ends of the floor—but there’s never been a better time to kick-start your cardio training with a kettlebell and elliptical combo.

First, let’s talk kettlebells. According to the American Council on Exercise, kettlebells combine cardio and strength successfully for a succinct, efficient workout. Women, in particular, are flocking to this exercise tool; one NYC gym cites that 70% of class attendees are women.

Moreoever, kettlebells require dynamic motion – swinging in fact – which engages total body movement to work your entire core. Incorporating professional-grade kettlebells into your exercise program adds additional toning, core strengthening, increased range-of-motion, and flexibility.

Second, when kettlebells are partnered with premium elliptical trainers, you’ve truly created a full-service fitness regime. With the state-of-the-art elliptical training technology from Octane Fitness, or from the highly acclaimed Cybex Arc Trainer, or from global leader True Fitness—you’re assured effective cardio cross-training with results you’ll love.

It’s no wonder fitness experts, exercise trainers, class instructors, athletes, and even those just getting started are incorporating kettlebells into every level of cross-training. Kettlebells combined with a high-quality elliptical cross trainer, may just be the smartest investment for a lifetime of physical fitness.

Looking for the perfect kettlebells to complement your elliptical training? Start with Gym Source. The kettlebell brands we carry incorporate the latest technology to eliminate rattling and unwanted motion during use. For example, Rocketlok Adjustable Kettlebells are completely adjustable—combining four kettlebells in one convenient set, with the ability to quickly and easily change weight without tools. They retain a kettlebell shape, with a chic design and smooth surface to avoid any parts snagging clothing or – ouch – skin.

If prefer old school, try cast-iron USA kettlebells, which mirror the Russian originals and get the job done: no bells and whistles—just a full-body, core-building workout. The Gym Source VTX USA Kettlebells come in 5 lb increments ranging from 10 lbs to 50 lbs, and make a hardcore addition to your workout room and regimen.

Kettlebells have proven the test of time, increasing flexibility, core strength, and range of motion among athletes of all levels. When integrated with elliptical training, you’ve got a powerful program for all-body fitness.
