The Kettlebells CPD award involves an intensive 1-day workshop with one of our expert tutors, covering theoretical and practical modules, preparing you to plan, demonstrate and lead clients through kettlebell exercise regimes.

History of Kettlebell Training

The course starts by exploring the history of kettlebell training, detailing the anatomy of a kettlebell and the correct way to hold kettlebells for different exercises.

Benefits of Kettlebell Training

Through a tutor-led practical session, you’ll discover the benefits of integrating kettlebell exercises into a training regime and how kettlebells differ to other gym equipment. Taking a balanced approach, you’ll also learn about the disadvantages of using kettlebells when other pieces of equipment would be more beneficial.

Kettlebell Movements

This three-hour long practical module will teach you how to perform and identify a series of kettlebell movements, the techniques required to completely perform each exercise and how to modify each movement effectively. You’ll also learn about muscle group activations for each exercise and how to implement these into a balanced workout. 

Planes of Motion and Lifting Styles

This module introduces the planes of motion and how balanced exercise programming must include all three planes, exploring how each kettlebell movement from the previous module meets criteria for the three planes.

Observational Assessment

The Kettlebell Training CPD course ends with a 60-minute long observational assessment where you will be tasked with demonstrating your knowledge of kettlebell exercises through the preparation and delivery of a kettlebell session plan comprised of four different exercises.

CPD Fitness courses are assessed through an observed assessment on the day of attendance. You will need to demonstrate your skill and competence in front of a qualified teacher and assessor who will lead your training.
