About this course

Kettlebells have a range of core benefits including improved strength, flexibility and cardiovascular health. The Kettlebells Pro course will give you the skills and knowledge you need to teach a range of clients to use this equipment safely and effectively. Unlike other equipment, kettlebells can work several muscles at the same time so they can benefit all your clients, whether beginner or advanced, and be a fun way to get fit.

The benefits of kettlebells

  • Helps to improve posture/prevent pain – works all the weak/undertrained muscles in highly sedentary and desk working clients.
  • Time efficient – helps build muscle, improve cardiovascular fitness and is very metabolically expensive (helps burn energy and therefore fat).
  • Improves dynamic flexibility and motor control.
  • Kettlebells are portable and versatile - perfect for mobile trainers to do a variety of exercises, with one tool.
