Functional Kettlebell Training (FKT)

Functional Kettlebell Training Certification

The 2-Day Functional Kettlebell Certification is reshaping what can be done with the kettlebell for you and your clients.

Traditionally the kettlebell is taught in one of two ways: hardstyle or competition style. The problem here is, of course, that many people enjoy or need more than one single option of how to use and be successful with a tool.

The FKT program teaches it’s participants how to use the kettlebell and ways that take advantage of it’s unique shape in the patterns: SQUAT | HINGE | LUNGE | PUSH | PULL | CARRY.

  • The FKT is unlike other kb certs. In fact, we barely cover basic squats and deadlifts because that isn’t unique to kb training.
  • Other certs teach 6 exercises, in one style and call everything else “wrong”. 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.
  • The FKT has no performance test as part of the certification. We only care that you learn how to teach and program the exercises.

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.

The FKT curriculum is built around 2 days: fundamentals and progressions.


Host a Kettlebell Cert


Starting March 4th, we are running our Functional Kettlebell Training online certification.
This will be an 8-week course where you’ll get the following:
  • Two weekly live zoom coaching sessions with myself and/or Logan (and maybe some guest appearances by Gini and Rick) where we work technique and watch each other both get coach and try coaching. (These will progress over the 8 weeks in challenge)
  • Access to recordings of past live certifications and other bonus pre-recorded certification material
  • A full 8 week program with coached intros (this progresses from basics to more advanced during the 8 weeks)
  • Unlimited access to q+a in the private coaching group
This certification (really more of a mentorship) is for:
  • those of you who can’t travel and make an in-person certification, (honestly, having 8 weeks of getting coached like this will be even better as far as building your skills!)
  • those of you who want to do the KB certification but feel like you “aren’t ready”. Let me tell you what you sound like: those clients who say “let me get in shape before I start training with you”!
  • if you did the cert, and just want to keep improving this is a great way to go (this is about 8 people who are jumping in to this cohort)

The Functional Kettlebell Training cert is our unique take on using kettlebells in training.
Our focus is teaching you how to be more successful for more people with the kettlebell. That means more teaching options, more movement options, and more progression options. This follows the PPSC methodology respecting the individuality of peoples’ bodies, histories, interests and goals.
Because we get to start with a fresh beginning, we are NOT LIKE the other kb certs out there. We are actively anti-dogmatic and we can guarantee that this is very very different than the old standard certs that have been around for a long time.

The online intensive provides the following benefits:

  • you follow a progressive 8-week kettlebell focused program so you can see how the skills progress each week
  • you submit videos of you performing the drills to the group so that you get coached by our instruction team
  • the coaching of the videos is recorded and posted to the group, which means you get more exposure to coaching kettlebell skills than you can in a single weekend course
  • We meet twice per week via zoom for live coaching and feedback

Time Commitment

  • 4 workouts per week to practice your skills
  • 1-2 hour per week to watch the coaching recordings, and the standard instructional videos

What’s taught

  • swings, and variations
  • cleans, and variations
  • snatches, and variations
  • presses, and variations
  • Turkish get up
  • windmill, and variations
  • integrating KB into basic lifts
  • moving into complexes, chains and flows

What’s the difference between the online course and the in-person course?

  • The online course simply provides more time, exposure and opportunity for us to coach the participants
  • The online course is more intensive from a time and effort standpoint
  • The online option is the most thorough kettlebell certification course on the market simply due to the length of time and amount of interaction that allow
