FUNCTIONAL KETTLEBELL TRAINING

$799.00

PPSC Presents:

Functional Kettlebell Training (FKT) Certification.

The FKT is different from other kb certifications in the following ways:

  • Other certs teach you how to goblet squat, and deadlift with a kb, but don’t really teach only unique to the kettlebell exercises. The FKT looks at the kettlebell as a great tool that provides its’ users the opportunities to load in unique ways, and so we focus on how to uniquely utilize the kettlebell in the SQUAT | HINGE | LUNGE | PUSH | PULL | CARRY PATTERS.
  • 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, as we only want people to be able to achieve results without creating pain.
  • The FKT has no performance test as part of the certification. We only care that you learn how to teach the exercises, not how strong and fit you are.
  • The FKT teaches with the mindset that the kettlebell is part of a holistic program, and probably not the entire program.

The FKT events are taught by Jason C Brown, who has taught more Kettlebell Certifications than anyone else on earth!

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.

Description

WHY KETTLEBELLS?

The Kettlebell is an amazing piece of equipment that can be both the best tool for introducing loading to our fundamental movement patterns, or uniquely suited to progressing those basic exercises into more dynamic and challenging progressions. As such the kettlebell has earned a large contingency of ardent fans, sometimes comically referred to as kettlebell cultists. Their enthusiasm is not misplaced, but often times it is unfortunately displayed in a gatekeeping or dogmatic manner that actually keeps people away from using and enjoying the kettlebell and it’s benefits.

The Pain Free Kettlebell Certification will stand out from other KB certifications in the industry because our only focus is that the tools and knowledge you gain with us are immediately applicable to as many of your clients as possible. We are not interested in having overly strict and unnecessary standards which are not required to deliver exceptional results. At the other end of the spectrum we are not overly interested in excessively complex movements, complexes or flows which can look, feel and be great, but are realistically rather difficult to implement with our standard clients. 

The PPSC x KB course will coach you through kettlebell exercises, many progressions of those exercises, complexes/flows/combination drills and a very practical section of “integrating KB training into a multi-tool and multi-disciplinary approach to health promoting fitness, strength and conditioning”. 

When you take this course we do NOT expect you to only train with kettlebells! But we are certain you’ll want to start using them as a staple in your complete programs.

THE CURRICULUM

The PPSCxKB course will break out the exercises under our 6-foundational movement patterns:

SQUAT | HINGE | LUNGE | PUSH | PULL | CARRY

Within each pattern there will be MANY variations. We recognize that you and your clients don’t just desire variety, but they actually need variety.

Here is a reality, many people who specialize in the kettlebell want to act as though being able to effectively teach a client how to do the drills is difficult. The truth is that it is NOT difficult to introduce new exercise to your clients. We will not be spending multiple hours on one single exercise variation! We generally are able to introduce a new exercise to our clients in minutes, so why would it be needed to take 3+ hours to learn how to teach that exercise?! Instead we will ensure you can perform the fundamentals very well, teach them very well, and then we will learn how to progress them intelligently to produce novel adaptations and gains while keeping your clientele excited with your programs.

Each pattern will be taught with this framework…

FUNDAMENTALS PROGRESSIONS
BE ABLE BE ATHLETIC
Strength Focus Power, Coordination, and Rotation Focus
Strongest Bases of Support Challenged Base of Support
Single Drills Single and Combo Drills

You’ll learn the kettlebell basics such as swings, cleans, snatches, windmills, and the turkish getup, OF COURSE. However, we will also discuss when and how to implement those and how they may have utility limitations with many clients.

You’ll learn many variations in the squat, push, hinge and pull patterns. You’ll also learn over a dozen unique kettlebell swing variations. You’ll learn many dynamic lunge+ clean/snatch variations. And the course will end with learning the ins and outs of successful kettlebell complexes and flows.

COMPLEXES / FLOWS
BE ADAPTABLE
Endurance Focus (expression)
Moving or Challenged Base of Support
Successive drills strung together or for reps

The kettlebell is a fantastic tool, and we want to make it easy and approachable, instead of hard and off putting.

The cert is good for 1.6 ceus with NASM, and 1.5 with ACE. All other organizations will grant ceus via self reporting.

Events will generally be 10-6 on Saturday and 9-5 Sunday (but may need small changes based on the individual club)

“The PPSC programs and certifications have not only improved my personal fitness level
and performance, but have greatly improved my ability to coach my students at all levels, and deal with numerous physical limitations often seen today. I feel confident in coaching people who feel they have been broken and making them feel strong, and identifying weaknesses in those who are strong to make sure they stay that way. Best training in the industry!”

“We were able to bring our whole team and it was the best experience. We have a range of new to experienced trainers and we all got something new out of it! It was the perfect package of new theory (on programming, prehab, etc) and practical application (cueing, supersets, etc). It’s absolutely the best overall course to learn how to really help your clients progress without pain. We’ve already started using what we learned and our clients are loving it!”

“Just when I thought the PPSC team couldn’t possibly deliver any more value, they outdid themselves once again! I can’t tell you how many times I had “Ah-ha!” moments during this PPSCx weekend. Right after the first lunch break, I looked at my business partner and said “This is REALLY good! We needed this!” I have been a coach for 7 years, and I have been a gym owner for 2 years. This new certification gave me many new tools to implement in my facility in terms of programming, coaching systems, and client interactions. Plus, the networking opportunity with other like-minded individuals was incredibly valuable. David and Clif made this weekend jammed packed with tons of fantastic information, and they delivered it in a way that was interactive, FUN, and easy to implement immediately with my clients. I’m extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this event, and I’d honestly do it 10 times over. Thank you PPSC for making me a better coach and leader. Thank you for helping me help others change their lives through fitness. You guys rock!”
