KBC_logo_copyKettlebell Concepts™ Instructor Training: Level 1: Introduction to KettleBell Lifting with Maria Scally
Thursday 10/2/14 8:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m. & Friday 10-3-14 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
CEC’s:  1.6 ACE, 1.6 NSCA, 1.6 NCSF, 1.6 NFPT, 1.6 NASM, 1.6 ISSA, 9.5 AFAA and 4 SPIN®
So what’s our point? At KettleBell Concepts we’re encouraging you NOT to swallow the hype swirling around KB’s. Dig deeper. How about being able to earn MUCH more money by conducting small group, semi-private sessions? Kettlebells are super-hot—but like Spinning™, Pilates, Yoga, and other disciplines—you MUST know what you’re doing. Client are putting their most prized possession in your hands (their BODY!) so we know you’re a lot more responsible than “learning” the moves from YouTube. Right? RIGHT??   Competitive Girevoy Sport (kettlebell) lifters spend YEARS trying to master just two lifts: The Snatch and Clean and Jerk. Do you think you can possibly “learn kettlebells” in a pre-conference workshop? In 9 hours? In 16 hours? In 3 days? In a lifetime?
This 16 hour course is the first step of many within the KBC curriculum and is geared specifically toward fitness professionals looking to implement kettlebells into a one-on-one environment or small group, semi-private environment. Here’s what you’ll learn:
You’ll begin learning the sciences of the “why’s” behind the “how’s” and you’ll do so safely and effectively with science and research needed to back it up.
You’ll learn the history. You’re entering into a long, long, storied tradition of “Physical Culture.”  Martial artist, Pilates & Yoga practitioners know their lineage. KBC demands no less from our instructors. Where did kettlebells come from? Why did they disappear for all these years? Why are they finally coming back now with such a vengeance? Where is the modality heading?
You’ll learn all the basic, foundation kettlebell lifts—and then some!
You’ll learn how to start thinking of kettlebell training from a neurophysiological, biomechanical, kinesiological, and motor learning/control perspective and—more importantly—how this larger thought process can benefit you on a broader scale as a fitness professional. “Tell. Show. Do” has its place. But there are other things you should be consider!
You’ll learn how to effectively teach the basic kettlebell lifts for improved skill acquisition and context-dependent functional transfer.
This is the tip of the iceberg. With ongoing education, training, practice, time and patience, you’ll become fantastic with KB’s and (of course!) offer a kick butt 30-45 minute class to your clients! Most importantly you’ll be able to effectively aid your clients in getting to where they need to be and make more money for yourself in the process. Not a bad deal.  Want to learn more about us and what you’ll be learning?
