The Aftermath of the CrossFit Kettlebell Certification

018 The CrossFit Level I Kettlebell Certification last weekend was a huge success.  Attendees came from all over the Northeast, from as far away as upstate New York to as close as Gaithersburg, Maryland - and they all had one thing in common - a burning desire to learn more about kettlebells. With a sold-out crowd in attendance we spent two days going over the basic kettlebell lifts (deadlift, squat, swing, clean, military press, push press, snatch, jerk, etc.).  We covered basic progressions, variations, common technique faults and how to fix them.  No stone was left unturned and no question was left unanswered.  Everyone left the certification sore, tired, and ready to take their newfound knowledge back to their clients.

Kb_cert_174 Most, if not all, came to the certification with some experience with kettlebells - but none were prepared for the depth of information that was presented.  Jeff consistently amazed everyone with his demonstrations, technique breakdown and entertaining "Jeff-isms" ("If you're going to be stupid you better be tough!"; "No good will come of that!"; "That was some high-quality pain!"; etc.).  Mike (Krivka) provided hands-on tips on correcting technique issues, testing structural integrity and some creative workout cycles to keep everyone moving and motivated.

NOTE: If you missed this certification and are interested in attending one we will be announcing another date for a Level I KB Certification in the coming weeks.
