People exercising with kettlebellsWhilst there are lots of kettlebell fitness groups available, Winchester Kettlebell Club is one of the few competitive kettlebell sport clubs in the South, catering for beginners and experienced lifters alike, young and old. Beginners through to experienced lifters are all equally welcome! The sessions are designed to be family-friendly so adults can train alongside their kids (from age 8 upwards). The club meets in the Whiteshute room at the Community Centre every Sunday morning from 9.30–10.30am.

Covid-19 update: Determined to carry on with training and helping members to progress during lockdown, club coaches Ruth and Simon have set up twice-weekly Zoom classes showing that distance is no barrier to good quality training, with a catch up over virtual coffee afterwards!
