Today I’m pleased to announce the release of the new kettlebell app for all kettlebell training enthusiasts, the kettlebell workout wizard. Currently available for free on the app store for iPhone and Google Play for Android.
If ever you struggle with motivation or not knowing exactly what workout to perform on any given day then this is the workout app for you.
You can now generate a random kettlebell workout (WOD) whenever you choose at the touch of a button.
What is the Kettlebell Workout Wizard app?
The kettlebell workout wizard is an app for your phone that enables you to generate a random kettlebell workout based upon your level of experience.
Here is a screenshot of a randomised kettlebell workout:
The workout app contains 3 skill levels, beginner, intermediate and advanced.
You can see from the workout above that the Intermediate level was chosen and the kettlebell wizard app generated a workout of 5 exercises.
Each exercise is performed one after the other with a minimum amount of rest.
There are a total of 45 different kettlebell exercises
Each kettlebell exercise has been carefully chosen based on its movement pattern and the ability to activate as many muscles as possible with one single movement.
The kettlebell exercises are accompanied by a video, graphic and teaching points in order to ensure you master the technique.
Here’s a screenshot of the exercise description screen:
You have the option of a quick view via the GIF image at the top, teaching points below or you can watch a video to see the exercise in action.
Please ensure that you master the exercise before attempting it during your workout. Practice with a lighter kettlebell to develop simple strength and confidence with the movement.
How to use the kettlebell app
Everyone should begin by selecting the ‘beginners‘ level and then selecting a ‘new workout‘.
I encourage you to NOT keep scrolling through waiting for a workout that looks attractive. You will find you achieve better results and achieve greater balance of your body by using whatever workout is generated for you. Work on your weaknesses.
Next select the first exercise of your workout and read the teaching points and watch the video. Are you happy with the exercise? If not, practice. Repeat the same with all the other exercises within your workout.
You can find lot more detailed articles and videos of all the exercises here on this website, I suggest you start here.
Now you are happy with the exercise you can hit the back button and progress through the workout.
Perform each exercise for the recommended number of repetitions.
If you want to improve your cardio then try to keep rest periods to a minimum in between exercises.
Can you complete the entire workout without putting the kettlebell down?
Once you have completed 1 circuit you can either select a ‘new workout‘ or repeat the same circuit again.
I’d recommend that you perform 2-4 circuits, 3-5 times per week.
Once you find you are completing the ‘beginners’ level workouts easily then you can progress onto the next level.
Try not to progress too quickly, 4-6 weeks is a good time frame for each workout level.
Where can I download the kettlebell workout app?
The kettlebell training app is currently available on the app store for iPhone, and Google Play for Android.
Enjoy the kettlebell app and please keep me updated on all your results.

Hi Greg, I love the app but had one question about Get ups. This morning eg i was doing an intermediate workout that has 12 tgus. Assuming it’s 12 per side, that’s like 6 minutes just on tgus. Is the idea to do them at the very end, or each round? If the latter, is that a workout where you might just do two sets? And do you switch sides each rep? I noticed it doesn’t say “each side” as it does for other exercises.
Love the emails too by the way.
Thanks and best wishes,
Greg Brookes says
Thanks Andrew, yes the Get Ups are performed by alternating sides and for the total number of reps so your 12 reps would have been 6 each side.
Perhaps you have already heard this, yet can you offer modifications to all exercises in the app (if you need to step it up or down). Meaning when a workout is chosen based on skill level, each exercise should be customizable within the app (have a mod-up or mod-down)
I consider myself a 50+year-old “advanced beginner”, yet I cannot get to 90 degrees for a squat, nor can I tap my back knee to the floor for a lunge. Nor can I get up from a kneeling position without using my hands. (I prefer workouts that allow be only standing or only be on the floor, if possible. Typically, I bend as low as I can, for squats and lunges, often without the kettlebell.
Also can exercises be set to a timer and verbally announced, so time isn’t wasted looking on your phone for the next exercise. Otherwise, a good start for the app, Greg.

When will your Android app be out?
Greg Brookes says
Sometime this month Rick (June 2020)
Looks great, thanks Greg, I really appreciate your work and this site, so looking forward to trying the app.
I’ve been taking it easy after getting an inter-costal strain from (poorly done) TGUs, so looking to restart and build up strong foundations.
I am disappointed the app is not available in France. Will it be in the future?
Greg Brookes says
New updated kettlebell workout wizard app should be released in May 2020.
When will your app be available in the United States?
Greg Brookes says
I’m currently working on a new kettlebell app David, hopefully for release in 2020.
