Highly Evidence Informed
There have been hundreds of research articles published about the nuances of kettlebell usage. Themes and important messages will be pulled from the pertinent evidence and integrated with years of kettlebell experience from the instructors.
Built for Professionals
This course focuses half on the attendees, half on their clients. This course is meant to give you an understanding of how to take the information and apply it immediately in your own practices, but just as importantly how to coach these movements professionally.
More than kettlebells
Even if you walked away from this weekend without ever touching a kettlebell, you'll come away with specific applicable principles on how to assess and teach movement prerequisites, side step injuries, and progress, regress and lateralize with clients in all situations.
Why Kettlebells? Why Now?
Besides the fact that they're everywhere and everyone seems to be using them...
