How To Start Training With Kettlebells

Starting anything new can be intimidating and confusing.


The internet was meant to make information easier to find, but in many ways it simply made the waters murkier, with every man and his dog being given a voice.


Finding real knowledge amongst the plethora of snake oil salesmen became ever more difficult.



Back when I first heard of the Kettlebells there was one single source, Dragon Door and their RKC fronted by Pavel Tsatsouline. Surrounding Pavel we had Steve Cotter, Mike Mahler and Steve Maxwell. There were a few other names, but they were the big ones.


Then Kettlebell Sport crept into our awareness under the likes of Vasily Ginko and Valery Federenko

I was fortunate to be able to learn and study under three of these legends, Steve Cotter who certified me as Irelands first CKT 2 and Master Trainer in, Vasily who certified me as an IUKL Kettlebell Coach and Mike Mahler, who doesn't offer a cert.

This was in around 2008/9 Before the kettlebell explosion and the rise of the social media guru's.


Back then, starting was simple, there were very few places to purchase a bell and very few resources to choose from to use it.


Now, in 2022, you can buy a kettlebell like object in the middle isles of the supermarket, and you can't move for instructors claiming to teach you how to use them.


With, lets say.... varying, results.
