Clubbells have a vast advantage over dumbbells for men and women.
Clubbells are for people requiring rotational and mobility strength.
Weighted at one end, the club provides an unequal load, and swung in a circular, cross-body motion, it provided plenty of work for arms, back, shoulders, and midsection and legs.
Clubbells are a strength and conditioning tool which weights from 1kg to 16kg (heavier weights are swung one at a time).
Develop shoulder stability through strength, endurance and flexibility.
Gain highly effective grip strength and wrist training.
Clubbells are excellent for sports specific training like cycling, mountain biking, tennis, martial arts, golf, swimming, boxing, hurling, hockey etc.
Great for developing good posture by working the back and shoulder muscles.
Lighter clubbells are awesome for women who want strength without the bulk.
Mace training inspired by the ancient Persian warrior elite, is an improvement on the sledgehammer that is believed to be a more effective way to build core and rotational strength. It’s simple to pick up and use like a barbell, yet compact and versatile enough to use in ways no other piece of fitness equipment can match.
With a hollow metal handle and anywhere from 7 to 25 pounds of steel on one end, the unbalanced nature of the mace challenges rotatory movement and core stability while working the primary movers throughout the entire body.
Everything from head to toe is called upon to move and stabilise with the mace, making it the perfect strength and conditioning tool to burn calories and have fun doing it.

Indian clubs are nothing new; in fact they are the oldest exercise tool in existence.
Club training has a rich history dating back for centuries. The Indian clubs were usually made from wood, available in varying sizes and weights. These clubs were swung around in different rhythms and routines. The heavier clubs were used to develop physical strength, while the lighter clubs were used for shoulder flexibility and coordination.
It is believed to have been introduced to Europe by British soldiers stationed in India in the 1800's the clubs were used to keep the soldiers in top physical condition, challenging their strength agility, balance and flexibility traits. Club training spread around the globe where they were even introduced into school physical education programs and US military training.
Club training actually featured as an Olympic sport in 1904 but gradually waned from mainstream use in the first two decades of the 20th century as more hi tech gym machinery were the new 'in thing'.
I will teach Indian clubs, Clubbells and Mace on a one to one basis or small group session .
