WHY SHOULD A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL COMPLETE A KETTLEBELL CERTIFICATION COURSE?

A Fitness Professional should complete a Kettlebell Certification Course if they plan to do the following 

  • Use Kettlebell in their own training
  • Use Kettlebells in their Group Fitness classes
  • Use Kettlebells with their Personal Training clients

Kettlebell Training isn’t covered in depth during your initial Personal Training Certification and therefore chances are you haven’t been trained in how to use Kettlebells. This can result in the exercises not being performed properly which leads to less benefit and increased chance of injury. 

Completing a Certification ensures that you can both perform the exercises correctly yourself AND coach your clients how to perform the exercises correctly. 

WHY SHOULD A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL COMPLETE A KETTLEBELL CERTIFICATION NASM RECOGNIZES?

NASM is considered to be a global leader in certifying fitness professionals and has been around for over 30 years. If a course is recognized by NASM – it has gone through a strict accreditation process.

WHY SHOULD A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL COMPLETE AN ONLINE KETTLEBELL CERTIFICATION COURSE?

There are numerous advantages to completing an online Kettlebell certification

  • You can take as long as you like to complete the course
  • You can watch the videos over and over again
  • Even after completing the course you log back in and review the course material

WHAT CONCEPTS ARE TAUGHT IN A KETTLEBELL CERTIFICATION COURSE 

Our Kettlebell Certification Courses are broken down into three main components

Component 1: The Science and Safety

Before we teach any exercises / workouts we want to make sure our students understand the science and the safety behind Kettlebell training – what are the benefits? What are the risks? Who should be doing Kettlebell training? Who shouldn’t be doing Kettlebell Training? Why would someone perform a Bent Over Kettlebell Row? Why not just do a Bent Over Barbell Row? Etc etc 

Component 2: The Exercises

Once the student understands the science and safety behind Kettlebell training we then teach all the common Kettlebell exercises. We want to make sure 

  1. The student can complete the Kettlebell exercises themselves safely and with appropriate technique
  2. The student can coach a client to complete the exercises safely and with appropriate technique

Component 3: Programming

Knowing all the different Kettlebell exercises is great but it doesn’t mean much if you can’t program them. So the next thing we cover is programming. We want to make sure

  1. The student can program a safe, fun and effective workout for a coaching client 
  2. The student can program a safe, funa and effective workout for a Group Fitness class.
