There’s something very appealing about clubbell training. The idea of swinging a bat just seems like a good way to get rid of the stress. Oh, and a great way to build up muscles and strength quickly.
Trainer David Hardin, who is leading clubbell training at Crosstown Fitness in the West Loop, says the weighted bats typically come in at 10 to 25 pounds. There is a knob at the bottom so it won’t slip out of your hands.
Fans of clubbell training – which is a full-body workout – say it increases your joint strength. And unlike traditional weight lifting, in this training you’re swinging the club and that ups your ability to produce force. It’s supposed to be a great workout for the core and many say it has helped get them stronger faster.
Besides Crosstown Fitness, during the summer Hardin is doing clubbell training at the lakefront and will do private home session. The cost is $100 for a 55-minute training.
