Gallup School of Strength


At Gallup School of Strength

Workout buffs and couch potatoes alike at some point in time have come across weights with the built-in handle while shopping at big box and sporting goods retailers.

But, these weights, formally called “kettlebells,” are not a part of some new fitness fad. Kettlebell weights and training go back hundreds of years, according to Gallup School of Strength co-owner Greg McNeil. He said the word “kettlebell” was first noted in a Russian dictionary, compiled in the early 1700s.
