Based in Bergen, Norway, Primalmovers Ltd. offers mobility and strength and conditioning training for individuals, small groups, personal trainers and businesses. Using primarily kettlebells, Bulgarian Bags and body weight movements, our aim is to teach people how to ‘re-learn’ natural movement by focussing on full-body control, balance, form and technique.
Lessons and group classes are tailored to suit your abilities and always follow a progressive standard to ensure correct form is at the basis of all teaching. Using techniques learnt from some of the world’s leading coaches such as Steve Cotter, Steve Maxwell and Valery Fedorenko, Primalmovers offers training solutions not found in the mainstream fitness industry.

The Level 1 workshop is perfect for those men and women interested in learning more about these fantastic training tools and for those with some experience. You will learn the proper mechanics/alignment, breathing and groove (kettlebell trajectory and position) for all the classical lifts which will help bring your training to new levels!.
The Level 1 workshop focuses on two key points:
1. Mastery of the basics – You will learn the fundamental kettlebell exercises, several variations and most importantly, the key physical training principles underlying and associated with each movement.
2. Functional effectiveness – Kettlebells have developed a great reputation because they promote full-body fitness integrating the entire body helping promote stabilization of the core muscles.
Kettlebells originated in Russia over 300 years ago and have a long and proven record of effectiveness. These unique exercise tools have been used by individuals around the world to build muscle, lose fat, increase flexibility and mobility and strengthen their endurance. The shape of the kettlebell allows for unique positioning of the weight directly above your center of mass (unlike a dumbbell or barbell which must be held in front of the body) which allows for greater endurance and longevity in the core lifts so that you can produce a much higher volume of exercise and thus greater conditioning and fitness. Some of the benefits of kettlebell training include:
- Improved strength
- Incredible work capacity (strength endurance conditioning)
- Enhanced athleticism – flexibility, coordination, balance, speed etc.
- Weight loss
- Injury prevention
- Mental toughness
- Lean & functional muscle mass
- Strengthening of the entire posterior chain
