True Grit Kettlebell Club is Florida’s first Youth Kettlebell Sport Club. This unique program was formed with a mission to develop strong bodies and strong minds through Kettlebell Sport.
What is Kettlebell Sport? Kettlebell Sport is a strength endurance sport that began in Russia in 1885, and is now the national weightlifting sport of Russia. It is a competitive lifting sport that lasts ten minutes. The champion is the person with the most repetitions. There is also a ranking system in Kettlebell Sport similar to working towards a black belt in martial arts. It is open to all ages rapidly growing in popularity. It is very safe, and produces strong bodies. Kettlebell Sport is also unparalleled for between season rehab work and conditioning of athletes.
