KETTLEBELLS ARE THE MOST VERSATILE TOOL IN A TRAINER’S TOOLBOX – STAND OUT BY KNOWING HOW TO USE THEM SAFELY AND EFFECTIVELY IN MULTIPLE WAYS.

The Functional Kettlebell Certification is reshaping what can be done with the kettlebell for you and your clients. It is also leveling up the educational experience for learning how to integrate and use kettlebells.

The Kettlebell is arguably the most versatile tool in the gym. Knowing how to safely & effectively use the kettlebell in multiple ways sets you apart as a coach.

The FKT program teaches how to use the kettlebell in ways that take advantage of it’s unique shape and training opportunities. We want to do more with kettlebells, not less.

The FKT understands that different people need different options, and as such every drill we teach provides safe and effective options to accomplish the same goals. FKT is non-dogmatic in its’ approach.

Upon completion of the FKT you will be confident in how to utilize the Kettlebell to uniquely load many variations of swings, cleans, snatches, presses, rows, windmills, getups, squats and more.

DO MORE WITH KETTLEBELLS; NOT LESS.

  • THE CERTIFICATION DELIVERY

    We deliver our education both via digital online delivery, and with the 2-day live and in-person course. 

    1. Upon purchase you will receive video lessons to fundamentals (swings, cleans, snatches, turkish get-up, squat, deadlift) so that you can follow the prep program and be ready for the weekend certification live event.
    2. At the live event we will cover multiple ways to teach clients to be successful with bells. We’ll teach many variations and progressions of kettlebell techniques.
      1. At the live event you are required to practice, however we do NOT have a performance test out requirement. We are more interested in teaching the system, not your own level of output. You will certainly be physically challenged, but you do not need to worry about not passing due to a physical test.

    While the course is designed for trainers, therapists and coaches, about 20% of  our attendees are simply kettlebell fans who attend for their own learning.

What To Expect

In this 16-hour certification course, attendees will master the fundamentals of kettlebell training, as well as be given a progression system to continually get more out of kettlebell training by knowing when and how to progress the drills to target specific muscles, improve strength, power or endurance, and coordination/athleticism.

About Functional Kettlebell Training

Developed by kettlebell experts Clifton Harski (PPSC COO) and Logan Dube (PPSC Director of education) the Functional Kettlebell Certification makes kettlebells more accessible for more people, while also providing many methods to continue to progress with the tool

Rather than taking the objectively incorrect stance that there is only one way to utilize a tool, the FKT will see participants thrive with many options of how to both get started with and ultimately improve their kettlebell skills and options.

Presses: The shape allows us to get safer, shoulder friendly pressing in many ways.

1/2 Kneeling drills: Carry position works excellent in improving core integration

THESE ARE SECTIONS WE HAVE ON OUR DIGITAL LEARNING PLATFORM FOR YOU AS SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATION FROM THE WEEKEND

  • deadlift, squat, row, press. These are very basic drills, so we will not spend the weekend reviewing these, however the digital options provide great instruction.
  • Turkish Get Up. While synonymous with kettlebell training, we don’t actually end up using it with many clients, so we prefer to use the weekend time differently.
  • More progressions and special lectures in the future.
