Should I hire a trainer?


Should you Hire a Trainer?

It depends on whether or not you have someone who can watch you and provide live feedback.

Kettlebell training is not something that is easily picked up from books and videos; trust me – I know. When I was first introduced to kettlebells I was already a competitive strongman; I had plenty of experience in the gym and a kinesiology degree to match it. I was used to studying exercise and human movement, and I was used to lifting weights. What I wasn’t used to was the dynamics of ballistic kettlebell exercises. Sure, I still managed to lift the heaviest kettlebells at that time, but I also managed to beat my wrists up pretty good and waste a lot of time developing bad habits in the process.

As I read, watched and learned everything I could that was kettlebell related, it wasn’t until I set out to find professionals that would teach me the art of this old-time training method espoused by the Russians many years ago. This is when I learned proper technique, this is when I learned which exercises to perform and why, this is when I learned how to lift kettlebells!

I’ve spent many hours absorbing kettlebell information and applying it with ‘bell in hand. There is no greater learning aid to a trainee than a knowledgeable trainer, someone who can provide live feedback and address individual concerns. You can only go so far without a coach.

Perhaps you’re not convinced. That’s fine. Get yourself a couple kettlebells (I’d recommend Dragon Door kettlebells; men start with a 16 or 24kg, women start with an 8 or 12kg) and download my kettlebell e-book. It’s my gift to you – yours free. It’s packed with pictures showing the proper technique and no-fluff exercise descriptions. These are the exact exercises I teach, exactly the way I teach them. If you’re going to learn kettlebells on your own with free stuff you find on the internet, I’d still rather you learn from me. There is a lot of junk out there and “likes” on YouTube doesn’t automatically mean its good information. Take it from someone who has spend the last 10 years teaching kettlebells, has no less than half dozen certifications and actually owns a kettlebell gym.
