Kettlebell workouts are all the rage across the United States. Traditional workouts involving the use of dumbbells have been replaced by this new form of exercise that utilizes a ball shaped weight with a handle. The rounded handle is easier to grip than a typical weight, and the ball-shaped weight makes for a more complete workout that targets more muscle groups than traditional barbells and dumbbells. Here are some of the best places in Houston for kettlebell workouts.
