FAQs
I already know how to lift, is this program for me?
Yes! Experienced lifters will thrive in this program. A 10-week strength program is part of this course, so you can make some serious strength gains. The benefit will be learning new skills--the kettlebell is very technical. A course where you receive instruction + coaching is the best way to learn!
Why is this course 10 weeks?
To see and feel progress physiologically and mentally you need to give your body 10-12 weeks to learn, practice, repeat exercises. To make a change in your body, you need time. After 10 weeks you'll see and feel physical changes as well as have create a meaningful and consistent routine.
Do I really need a pull up bar?
Yes--access to a bar will help you develop ultimate strength over time in your grip and upper body. I firmly believe everyone should be able to do at least 1 pull up rep of their own bodyweight. This won't happen overnight and may take years, BUT, it will never happen if you don't start.
I only have 2 bells, is that ok?
Yep! Start with what you've got. The first month will help you build muscle, endurance, and a skill base. After that the course becomes more intense and progresses, so be ready to invest in a few heavier bells if you want to progress.
What skills will we learn?
We'll learn the KB clean, snatch, swing, and Turkish get up in month 1, progress different variations of these skills in month 2, and then practice each skill within our sessions for the last 2 weeks of the course.

"I've loved the program, the app and the ability to ask questions. I like that the app tracks my weights so I don't have to write it down/remember. I like that this session had a great balance of upper and lower body push/pull movements all together. I have definitely seen strength come back and improve which is exciting and motivating. I enjoyed the mix of strength/endurance complexes and swing sessions as it is great for life, other sports, HRV & endurance."
