Course Overview

Movement Inspired by Strongmen of the Past!

A long-standing staple of many power endurance competitions and exercise regimens, the kettlebell – a cast-iron or cast steel ball – represents a uniquely versatile and effective training tool. With the IFA Kettlebell Instructor Course, you will gain the necessary skills and techniques to understand, handle and teach kettlebell exercise sessions, providing your clients with the benefits and proper safety considerations of a kettlebell training program. Furthermore, you will elevate your own training by incorporating this explosive piece of equipment as part of your cardiovascular, strength or power regimen.

Course Modules

Unit 1: History of the Kettlebell
lays the foundation for your understanding and practice of kettlebell for exercise. From its earliest emergence, we explore how the cast iron evolved into a beloved form of fitness and exercise.
Unit 2: Foundational & Advanced Kettlebell Techniques
starts with the basics of the kettlebell swing, rack position, press, clean, and snatch, before taking learners into more complex movements that can be adjusted for all training goals.
Unit 3: Instructing Kettlebell Sessions
challenges our learners to conceptualize, design, and deliver their own kettlebell workout. With your classmates as the ‘test clients’, you can apply all theoretical and practical concepts from the course in your live teaching.
