Why Kettlebells?

In a word: versatility. Due to their design, kettlebells are perfectly suited to a wide variety of strength exercises and explosive ballistic movements. Students can develop strength, conditioning and movement using a single tool. This makes kettlebells the perfect tool within our system. And the best part is that we provide the bells needed for your training at no additional charge. It's simply part of our model.

Key Training Elements & Progressions

The swing is an explosive hip hinge. It forms the foundation for all of the other ballistic movements. The student progresses from the swing to the single-arm swing and eventually to the snatch. A major benchmark in our system is the 5-minute snatch test.


The Turkish Get-Up is strength, stability and mobility all rolled into one movement. It includes multiple patterns, making it a great tool for developing and maintaining movement health. After learning the pattern, the student would eventually progress to heavy get-ups. 


Whether it's the kettlebell military press, the clean and press, or a simple push-up, there are plenty of options to develop upper body strength in our system. Over time students progress toward a half-bodyweight single-arm overhead press and a one-arm push-up. 


After mastering the goblet squat the student progresses to a variety of patterns including lunges, single-leg deadlifts, front squats, and, eventually, more advanced movements like the pistol squat.
