Kettlebells USA™ High Performance Instructor Level 1 Certification
Certified Kettlebell Instructors are in high demand as the popularity of kettlebells has grown. Unfortunately many trainers are not properly trained in the fundamentals of kettlebell lifting. This 2 day course will instruct you how to properly teach basic and intermediate kettlebell lifts with an emphasis on breathing, correct form, relaxation and controlling tension in the body for high performance kettlebell lifting. Students will learn the difference between “hard style, high tension” and “fluid style, relaxed tension” kettlebell lifting. Instructors will be evaluated on technical knowledge and proficiency, fitness level and teaching ability. This is a performance based course where certification is only given when the student passes all tests.
The KBUSA High Performance Instructor course was co-developed in conjunction with Red Bull® High Performance Athletics for training of elite, world class athletes and coaches. It incorporates the breathing, relaxation and recuperative techniques of the Russian Martial Art “Systema,” learned directly from Master Vladimir Vasiliev.
