The Path to Kettlebell Strength Starts with the Basics

The goal of this certification is to put you on the path to building strength with proper form. Next unlock the full potential of kettlebell movement and full body strength by adding rotational movement not taught in other certifications.

You must start with foundational kettlebell knowledge and movements before advancing. This program is for beginners who need a solid foundation in fundamentals of kettlebell before moving on to advanced rotational, fluid movement as well as experienced lifters who want to learn to teach kettlebell flow or move in new planes of motion in order to build new kettlebell strength. 

What is flow? A flow is an exploratory way of moving through as many different, planes, patterns and combinations as your abilities (knowledge of movement and physical) will allow. It is perfect for building athleticism, awareness and conditioning and act as a great supplement to strength work. The goals with flow are less about reps sets and more about moving through longer sets as well as smoothness of transitions. 

Whether you want to learn how move better yourself or grow your facility, empower your staff and provide more value to your clients this certification is for you.

At one of our recent certifications we were honored to have some beginner as well as experienced kettlebell lifters attend and be able to teach new techniques to both!

 

Kettlebell Flow

Move in front, back and lateral planes of motion by starting with foundational movements and advancing. Traditional certifications focus on forward and backward movement and sets of reps. Learn to build full body strength with sound, fundamental full body movement.

 

What Makes This Certification Different?

The goal of this certification is to teach solid fundamentals of safe and effective kettlebell lifting and put you on the path of building strength and fluid movement techniques with kettlebells. While most kettlebell certifications focus on front and back planes of motion, we expand past the traditional movements into rotational movements and lateral planes of motion for true full body strength building. What makes a kettlebell so powerful the ability to transition from different planes and angles quickly making you a resilient more competent mover in more than just front and back motion. We go into more rotational work as well as the break down of flow and how it pertains to athletic endeavors. It is also a ton of fun!
