What Makes This Certification Different?

These courses are for anyone who wants to move better themselves or teach others. Get a certificate when you pass the assessment!

  • 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!

"Thank you both again. The live time with both of you and the group was priceless. Learned so much and I am more excited than ever to continue to learning, playing and eventually coaching others. I probably would have not been able to attend traditional live workshop, unless locally delivered, so I am thankful for having received the invite. The online live model would be an equally valuable addition to your advance training certifications too. ""

Rogelio
Virtual Class Attendee

"Overall, the class was excellent. Marcus is a master, and it showed through...Being able to mimic an in-person atmospheric in a virtual coaching session is tough to do. And yet, they did it. ...the accessibility and cost savings of so far outweighed it I'd offer the virtual real-time model may actually be superior."
