Bring the benefits of kettlebell training to your clients

Although client interest in using kettlebells has soared in recent years, traditional kettlebell courses are still taught in a very rigid way. By understanding that there are several proven ways to move with a kettlebell, you can better help your clients achieve the incredible fitness benefits available through the use of this equipment.

In this course, you’ll gain an understanding of both hard style and kettlebell sport, giving you the ability to take a simple yet masterful approach to teaching challenging kettlebell exercises, such as the hinge, swing, press, clean, and snatch. Invaluable tips and techniques to help improve movement patterns, breath work and engagement will be shared. In addition, you’ll learn safety guidelines and kettlebell anatomy, as well as how to incorporate a mobility warm-up and form drills.

Developed by Marcus Martinez, CSCS, this course is designed to help you achieve safe and effective performance of basic kettlebell movements and meaningful variations that will elevate your skills as a coach—allowing you to teach others, while also allowing you to move better with kettlebells and maximize your own workouts.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

•    Understand the basics of kettlebell anatomy, including weight, shape, and handle design
•    Perform kettlebell exercises with proper technique and consideration of safety guidelines
•    Cue the proper posture, stance, and form for kettlebell exercises including the hinge, swing, press, clean, and snatch
•    Carefully and effectively progress movements and adapt kettlebell training to individual needs and abilities


The wording of the kettlebell language is a bit confusing. Using a proper kettlebell is also key for the workout to be effective (not getting bruised). I liked the person demonstrating on the videos. He knew his stuff and wasn't reading from a script.

The videos were fantastic, but the manual has a ton of grammatical mistakes and typos. It simply needs to be edited.

Marcus is an engaging instructor. Moves at an appropriate pace. Interesting subject matter. I enjoyed it!

Marcus is a good communicator and instructions are easy to follow
