Kettlebell Workouts – How Long Until You See Results?

Clients naturally have lot of expectations when they sign up for kettlebells training with you. They come with a preconditioned mindset and information gathered from various sources which makes them think that you have a magic wand to transform their physical condition overnight.

However, as a seasoned trainer you know that things don’t work that way. Several factors influence how fast a client may see results. And as you have learnt during your kettlebell courses, you should never push things too hard even if your client is willing to.

Factors Affecting Workout Results

You should be frank with clients and let them understand that it takes time for the body to adjust to a new workout regime. Added to that are factors such as lifestyle, diet and nutrition, sleep and rest patterns and present physical condition; all of which affect how fast a client will see results with kettlebells training.

Kettlebell courses teach you how to help your clients plan and follow a healthy lifestyle which is so essential for sustaining the benefits of kettlebells training.

Also, many clients may do other forms of workouts along with kettlebell exercises and this is something that will also affect the pace of results.

Even then, clients who have never worked out before will see an immediate improvement in some areas such as posture and flexibility. They will also ‘discover’ newer muscles as kettlebell workouts target even the tiniest, hidden muscles of the body which many other equipments fail to work.

Noticeable Changes after One Month

Clients working thrice a week under you can expect to see noticeable change in their physical shape after three to four weeks of regular training. However, do keep in mind that newcomers will always take longer to reap the benefits. With newbies, it is always advisable to begin with a few introductory sessions that allows their body to adjust to the rigours of kettlebell training.

Also, clients must know how to handle kettlebells correctly and do all the movements right so as to avoid injuries and strain. So for clients training for the first time, it is best to give one to one and half months before they can hope to see slimmer waists and stronger muscles

Noticeable Changes after Two Months 

As a trainer who has done her kettlebell CEC certification, you know that visible change in muscle development is noticeable after about eight weeks or two months of continuous training; twice or thrice a week. However, kettlebell exercises are highly effective for rapid weight loss as most of them are total-body workouts with high afterburn effect.

So clients who are training regularly, eating right and sleeping well and following a controlled lifestyle can always expect to see faster results. In fact, clients who are diligent and disciplined can hope to flaunt a well-toned, lean and muscular body within six weeks of starting to train with kettlebells.

Some Clients may take Longer 

Not all clients have similar needs and physical capacity so the above generalization may not hold true for them. Especially clients who are above fifty years or physically unfit will take longer to reach similar results even with the right diet and disciplined lifestyle.

Remember These Tips Before You Join Bootcamp

Keep your tool kit in place

If you are planning to join a boxing bootcamp, then all the gear – shoes, boxing gloves, head gear, hand wrap and mouth guard. By preparing a boxing bag, your tool kit is ready. Having all the necessary tools will give you the confidence and when you enter the boxing ring the next day, you know you are up to the challenge.

In addition to these, also keep an extra set of clothes, your music box, towels, and water. This will get you all set to take on anything that comes in your way in the class.

Talk to the other students

Always remember, that when you are entering a new bootcamp class, you are not the only one who is doing this for the first time. You may find a kindred spirit who is feeling the same churn of emotions as you about going to your first personal training class.

As a result, you will not only find a friend in a new environment but also have someone whom you can relate to while you go through the different phases of learning. In addition, make time to talk to your personal trainer also, so that you are ease with your guide. Also, be sure to visit www.bootcampbondibeach.com.au and check out the timetable and location so you’re prepared ahead of time.

Be expressive

You need to understand that once you start learning, leaving your inhibitions behind will make your lessons easier. If you are unable to understand a step or a process, do not hesitate to raise a question or voice your concern. If you do not express yourself, you are hindering your learning and it only defeats the very purpose of attending new exercise classes.

Myths about studying at European Personal Training Institute

There are several myths flying around in UK when it involves becoming a personal trainer. If you are looking at joining the profession, do not hold back because of such myths. Read and be guided by the information given below:

Personal trainers need to be on the younger side

This is totally not true. While there could be trainers in their mid to late 30s, you will be surprised to know that a recent survey revealed that professionally trained fitness experts were in the age group of 50-60 years.

Trainers undergo intensive personal trainer courses and build up their knowledge and expertise over a period of time. The more experience they have, the better they are equipped to provide professional training. So age can be a relative factor, not necessarily a drawback when it comes to personal training.

Personal trainers are a celebrity service

In many ways this was true in years gone by – because of the cost factor. Celebrities had the means to pamper themselves with a whole range of personal services, including on the fitness front. However, the personal trainer profession has grown since then.

More and more people in UK have opted to join the profession and with the increasing numbers, there is an increase in availability. The more experienced and qualified trainers could demand higher fees, but there is the middle range of trainers who work in gyms and offer personal training – who are affordable.

Anyone can take up personal training

As European Personal Training Institute involves a whole lot of factors, the job might not suit all types of people. Besides attaining the required certification, a personal trainer has to have the dedication to guide and train people through a fitness course.

These are not easy aspects as a UK trainer has to deal with people of all types and fitness levels. So unless a person has the required passion to help people become fit, it might not prove to be the right profession to go in for.

Trainers have to be muscular and lean

Fitness definitely plays a major part in the life of a personal trainer. But it does not mean he or she has to be muscular and lean. A trainer could have a normal healthy body, but agile enough to guide the clients through their fitness moves.

Personal trainers are qualified to recommend diet plans for the client

The certifications acquired by personal trainers during personal trainer courses do not include expertise on specific planning of meals. As a trainer you might take the trouble to read about and increase your knowledge on what foods should be taken while working out. But a personal trainer is no expert in this field. People working out should best consult a professional dietician if they want to obtain maximum benefits while undergoing courses at the European Personal Training Institute.

Working in a gym is wage-sufficient

If you are employed as a personal trainer in a gym, such employment may not be sufficient to provide a living wage. You would have to continuously market yourself – among clients attending the gym or outside contacts – as being available for personal training sessions, to up your earnings.
