Kettlebells, which have a long history of popularity in Europe, are ball-shaped weights with a single looped handle at the top. They range in weight from two pounds to more than 100 pounds. Kettlebells promote functional, whole body fitness.

Whitley, known as the "Iron Tamer," is a Certified Kettlebell Functional Movement Specialist and a professional performing strongman. He holds workshops and training sessions throughout the United States. Information about Whitley's programs is available on www.irontamer.com.
