What a Successful Kettlebell Challenge!

We here at Womens Fitness Clubs of Canada want to extend a HUGE thank-you to all of our participants, family and friends who made The 2nd Annual Womens Fitness Kettlebell Challenge a tremendous success!

It was so incredibly inspiring to watch the hard work and determination of all of our competitors, who challenged themselves to complete 5 featured events. We even has some spectators join in the fun, trying out the kettlebell moves during the breaks. There were some impressive impromptu “bottoms up clean” and presses by the moms in the audience! (If you’re interested in taking part next year, don’t be shy… you can sign up too! Contact your club for details.) This year saw our very first mother-daughter team take part… and both won their respective categories. Cool, eh?

We’re also proud to announce that, as a highlight of the challenge, two new records were set on Sunday! We had a new record in the snatch, with 83 reps in 4 minutes, and there was also hot competition in the Masters Single leg plank category: we ended up with a new 1st place record, set at 3 minutes and 32 seconds. Amazing! (Check out the video of our Personal Training and Nutrition Director, Jenny Blumenfeld, rocking the competition.)

Finally, the day finished off with a 4-person demo to music showcasing advanced kettlebell skills, followed by the awards ceremony. Just click on the video to watch this amazing demonstration.

Everyone had a ton of fun, and we can’t wait for next year’s challenge!
