And the person bringing it to Pakistan is Umar Chaudhary, certified Kettle bell trainer. Here he not only picked up his master’s degree but also a lifelong passion for Kettle bells.
A perfectionist by nature, Umar now shares his expertise and passion with students at his gym, UC Fit, scrupulously supervising every session and pushing each of them to achieve their goals. Newline caught up with Umar Chaudhary asked him about what makes Kettle bells so special.
Gradually they started to have competitions in villages and it went on to become a national sport in Russia. Today Kettle bell competitions are held to determine muscular strength and endurance.
The bells were introduced to the western world by a gentleman called Pavel Gasoline in 2001. He used to train the Russian special forces and is considered to be the father of modern Kettle bells.
One of the reasons that the Russian teams always dominated at the Olympics was the fact that they trained with Kettle bells. W hat makes the Kettle bell a superior training tool?
So the muscles have to work in harmony and you achieve greater fat loss. Functional fitness is anything that engages the body muscles and makes them work in harmony.
It strips fat and develops lean muscle which will help you in practical life and you’ll look great as well. He was a former member of the Russian Special Forces and I asked him to teach me how to train with the bells.
Another time I had to move a huge cake fridge at the store where I worked and I managed to do it on my own without any help. Well I was very dedicated to Kettle bells by now because it gave me fitness and results unlike any other workout or training equipment.
So I joined the Functional Training Institute in Adelaide and I quickly understood how much I had to learn. But after I got a double certification as a master Kettle bell trainer, I started applying my knowledge by training some friends.
Slowly word spread and I started holding classes in my apartment and later in the gym in my building. I love being in the service industry, engaging with people and helping change their lives.
So I decided to return and bring international quality training to Pakistan. I started working at a gym and in less than a year I opened my own studio.
I have people of all ages coming to my classes from their teens to their sixties, both men and women. You develop muscles, ligaments, it improves joints and strengthens your back without hurting your spine.
I remain in touch with the Functional Training Institute in Australia, and they are very proud of the work UC Fit has been doing in Pakistan. One of the world’s top trainers Steve Cotter personally keeps up with me.
So you feel very happy when the work you are doing shines and catches the eye of the best in that field. Facebook is showing information to help you better understand the purpose of a Page.

Kettle bells are known to improve overall strength, core power, balance, flexibility, and coordination while also melting fat and sculpting healthy and lean muscles. Because a kettle bell has an off-set center of gravity, usually about 6 to 8 inches away from your grip on the handle, it is harder to control.
In those periods of competition cycle athlete have no choice/ one choice of changing hand once in single arm long cycles. Athlete have to keep the bells in rack position once raised from the floor.
No points count If athlete put down the bells before your cycle time is over. Where I grew up was essentially a cattle station in the middle of the desert in Australia.
My family and a few other people used to work there during the 70s-80s, so for fun we rode horses, motorbikes, and I learned to drive and shoot guns. I never did any team sports, since I didn’t grow up with that, but I understood fitness—and improving the machine—in general.
Rob Landon: My Mom's side of the family is all ex-military, she was Air Force and her Dad fought in World War II. When I finally went to school, it was in Boomers where the American Air Force had a large satellite tracking station in the middle of nowhere.
I was also about two years younger than everybody else in my group since I was ahead of the game in my homeschooling. I joined the Army as soon as I finished high school and began learning my trade in ’89.
It was essentially like Pathfinders, and we were a light infantry brigade based on a similar organizational scheme to a Marine Force Amphibious Unit. A full range of motion was always a big thing in our training as well as work in the transverse plane.
We had to be able to move and lift heavy weights, bodies, or whatever at weird angles. Once I left the army and was working overseas as a contractor, there was a lot of money floating around in the early days and some locations had some big awesome gyms.
I knew that all the overheads and lunges for reps wouldn’t be good for the body—I didn’t want to break something. I’d already had a complete ACL reconstruction on one side, and had dislocated my other knee when I was in the army, so I'm not the greatest when it comes to squats.
I ran convoys for a week at a time with about thirty Afghan mercenaries. Most of the time I didn’t have access to a proper gym to train, but if we were near a special forces camp, I’d use theirs.
But, in places like Kandahar, where most peoples’ experience in Afghanistan involves daily trips to Burger King, they freak out if a hairy, smelly, bearded person like myself cruises into the gym wearing afghan clothes and bringing weird rifles! A lot of it was Hindu wrestling style training, and some guys carried Indian clubs in their cars.
I was once riding with an old guy who had fought the Russians in the 80s who only had one leg but was still strong as an ox and walking around. The Afghans also have their own version of wrestling where they essentially try to lift each other up with a scarf or a belt around the waist.
I ended up having to kill one of the people who worked for the company after he pulled a weapon on me. I usually didn’t work with that crew because if they weren’t security, they would shoot at the convoys themselves!
Then, they'd tell the Westerners that it wasn’t safe for us and that they’d take care of it—all the while they’d add extra trucks to the convoy carrying drugs, illegal weapons, or whatever. The head of their crew was Panjshiri and was married to the sister of the Shah Massed, the guy who was killed shortly before September 11th.
The Panjshiri tribes are also mixed up with the secret police which is how they maintained control. That was when I started to realize that there was more to the story, especially when I was due in court and my appointed lawyer wouldn’t turn up, or the judge would tell him to shut up after five minutes.
It’s hard to describe other than it’s a mix between Fight Club and the trash compactor in Star Wars most of the time. But, I soon learned that the majority of them were just kids trying to pay off student loans, or guys trying to get money together to build a mosque, a school, or to start a business.
Many Russians were also in jail, including an electrical engineer who had dual citizenship in Russia and Ukraine. He liked a lot of Western metal and punk music—and I still have a hard time getting my head around that—but it was sort of how we bonded.
He's starting talking about kettle bells, so we got a few big cooking oil bottles which let us vary the weights a bit—the handles would cut into you a bit, but it worked pretty well. We did have a few mishaps when handles would come off and an oil bottle full of concrete would go flying.
When we were starting out, and when he was trying to get me to swing them properly, that's how we stumbled across some of your early GiryaGirlTV videos on YouTube using the illegal phones we all had in the prison! Some of my mates who I had served with in the Army were working as contractors at the Australian Embassy.
They would give me rice, potatoes, eggs to cook, which I supplemented with stuff coming from outside and from the store in the prison. Since I've been back in South Africa, I've sort of been dabbling here and there with training, but have started another cycle of kettle bells and calisthenics.
It keeps my head straight, and the repetition of swinging kettle bells is one of the things that kind of stops the noise. Dragon Door: It is fascinating, it seems like there’s a certain point in intense kettle bell workouts that can become almost meditative.
Rob Landon: I don't know if it’s just endorphins, but it reminds me of how the Japanese talk about Zen and finding peace in the pursuit of an activity to the Nth degree. I've always sort of known that if you can train while your mind does what it needs to do in the background, it works a lot better—it shuts out the noise and you can hear the answers.
Dragon Door: Along with kettle bell swings, which other movements have you found to be standouts in your workouts? Even though I had been putting up some serious weight last year with an Olympic bar for low reps, I like the variety of movements overhead with kettle bells.
Even with big kettle bells you might be moving less weight overall, but you’ll be working so much harder. Similarly, when people first see a proper bent press, they often say it looks like it would break their back.
It will be designed to help disadvantaged people in the townships and rural areas of South Africa. But we've come up with a pretty good model for the program, and I spent most of yesterday talking to community leaders in one of the townships.
We’re speaking to leaders at libraries, churches, and mosques to get their communities involved in the program.
