I registered to take a KB certification course! It isn't until June though, the classes seem to be few and far between.

It is through the International Kettlebell and fitness federation (IKFF). I did some online research and it was in the top three. I like this one best though because of its global view point. The world is a small place. 

The level one certification has you master the basics and learn how to coach others. I will probably take the second certification after I complete the first one.

So exciting!

I didn't realize how involved KB's could be! How long does the first certification take...how many classes?

Its a weekend long course but you don't automatically get your certification for showing up. You have to pass their assessment also. This is part of it :)

Women: Hand-hand Swing: 12kg x 100 – switching hands after each rep is completed
               1 arm Clean& Press: 12kg x 2 min per hand (4 min set); minimum 8 rpm, 32 reps total non-stop
               Snatch: 12kg x  30/30 with only 1 hand switch
               Front Squat: 12kg x 2 min, min 15 rpm

*The above is performed one right after the next with no rest or breaks inbetween exercises.

Cool! I found an ACSM workshop here in 2 weeks... crossing my fingers that I can swing it since it is 3 days long ( childcare of Friday will be difficult, but Sat and Sun Heath would have them) and it is $375.
