Kettlebells Auckland

High-paid, higher-stress executive with no time to exercise, a growing waistline, and rising blood pressure?

Need a fast, effective, and safe workout that you can fit in the moments between taking the kids to school and the zillion things you need to handle during the day?

High-performance professional athlete that needs the edge over competition?

Struggling to find the time to workout between a demanding work schedule and time with the family?

Tired and achy all the time? Or just bored with your current workout?

Even 10 minutes of kettlebells gives you more core strength and full-body cardio training than an hour in the gym!
It leaves you invigorated instead of feeling whipped.


What is a kettlebell?

A kettlebell is like a bowling ball with a thick, kielbasa shaped handle coming out of it. The off-centred nature of the weight makes training with it singularly difficult if you lack the proper form. Unlike bodybuilding style workouts which focus all the stress on a single muscle group through isolation, kettlebell style training recruits as many different muscle groups as possible at the same time. This trains the user to use his or her body synergistically, moving as a coordinated whole. Thus, a kettlebell, when used properly, develops strength, flexibility, AND cardio all at the same time! Wouldn't you rather be able to enjoy the benefits of strength training, stretching, and cardio training, along with hardcore mental training all at the same time???

Private and semi-private Kettlebell training is now available.

Please contact us for more information.

The addition of Kettlebells to our training at Integrated Fighting has resulted in a significant increase in the strength of our students, their explosive power is phenomenal, and the number of physical injuries due to strain or incorrect movement patterns has greatly reduced.

We now offer Kettlebell instruction as part of our curriculum - we recommend a course in KBs for any amateur or professional athlete.

Chief Instructor
Mark Cheng, RKC Team Leader

Dr. Mark Cheng is the chief instructor of KettlebellsLosAngeles and our Kettlebell Coach here at Integrated Fighting. He has trained extensively as a private student of Pavel Tsatsouline weekly for years, and earned his RKC directly from Tsatsouline himself. Dr. Cheng has been enthusiastically pursuing kettlebell training as a means of rehabilitation and health ever since he experienced the successful rehabilitation of his own lower back and shoulder injuries with Russian kettlebells. He also dropped 20 pounds after becoming regularly involved with kettlebell training!

No ordinary private trainer, Dr. Cheng brings extensive medical knowledge as a specialist in Chinese medicine orthopedics to each and every one of his clients and students. Always looking to increase his knowledge and understanding of the rehabilitative and prehabilitative applications of kettlebell training and the RKC system, Dr. Cheng attended the 2008 RKC Level 2 Certification, which focused on Functional Movement Screen technologies as presented by Sr. RKC, Brett Jones, as well as many other therapeutically applied movement sciences. His teaching method reflects an eye towards detail, safety, and constant fun.

He has trained such luminaries as Guro Dan Inosanto, Machado Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's Rigan Machado, and assisted his mentor, Pavel Tsatsouline, with law enforcement and military training. Few, if any, instructors bring the rare mix of martial arts master, physician, and kettlebell instructor to the mix like Dr. Cheng does!
