ABOUT GREAT LAKES GIRYA

As founder and creator of Great Lakes Girya we take great pride in our investment, and final decision, of incorporating, and marketing kettlebells as our primary use of equipment. Likewise, kettlebells are commonly known as kaizen- a Japanese word meaning never ending improvement. And that is why we are so fixated on kettlebells- because that is what our goal is, to provide our clientele with never ending improvement. Kettlebells provide ceaseless physical advancement by always providing a full body workout; the main attraction among many workout enthusiasts is strength and endurance training… and kettlebells provide users with that exactly. By the same token, the design of the kettlebell itself is fascinating; with a girthy handle, and off centre of mass- the kettlebell has a center of mass 6-8 inches off that of a dumbbell. Center of mass is an extensive variable as it pertains to exercise and strength training as it determines the load and difficulty of a given movement. Likewise, kettlebells are unique and corrective in nature as coordinating the center of mass of a kettlebell as well as the center of mass of the individual performing the movement require extensive synchronization. When considering the mechanics of using a kettlebell, the leading element is grip strength. Grip strength is something that our trainers will be advocating each and every session; for grip strength is an overall screening tool that can be used to determine someone’s overall health. Likewise, grip strength and heart function have been proven time and time again to have a strong vigorous connection, thus contributing to overall health and wellness.
