Step One: Your very first class at Kettlebility, no matter what your skill level, should be Groove Your Swing. After your first Groove Your Swing class, you are then eligible to sign up for the following classes:
With the prerequisite of the first Groove Your Swing class under your belt as an introduction to basic kettlebell and safe lifting skills, you can attend the above classes. However, until you have passed the Groove Your Swing Skills Test, you will have to wait to swing a kettlebell in any of the above classes.
Step Two: Pass the Groove Your Swing Skills Test. This shows us that you are ready to move into the next level of Kettlebility classes our kettlebell strength and endurance classes:
Step Three: Once you own the skills we work on in our 3-Elements classes, the 3-Elements Skills Test is your next goal. This enables you to move into our 6-Elements Classes where we work on the more advanced kettlebell skills…you have earned the right to do MORE…!
Step Four: The final level of classes is our Elite class. Train with Kettlebility instructors how they train themselves.
The skills portion is to pass the Level I StrongFirst Kettlebell Skills Test as though you were becoming a certified instructor. Here is a link to a video of the movements and standards.
The fitness portion is a Snatch Test: 100 snatches in 10 minutes. The rep scheme is up to you.
NOTE: There are no weight requirements for the Elite Test, though the bells should be at a reasonable working weight.
