    Default Kettlebells Keep Firefighters in Top Form

    Hackensack Firefighter Michael Oates wins first place in his bell division and weight class at world championship in Chicago. Read what kettlebells have done for Firefighter Oates.

    Its the closest thing that Ive experienced in an exercise to actually fighting a fire, said Stefano, who uses kettlebells to train FDNY applicants for the citys fitness test at his Long Island gym, AKC Fitness.

    I probably should have been a little more clear, I would take Crossfit and the way they use kettlebells over a program built just around kettlebells. My Bro is a Certified Crossfit Trainer as well in a Gym that is owned by an ex Firefighter/EMT.
