    Thoroughly enjoyed this course, a lot to learn even for those experienced with kettlebells. Having already recommended this course to many other coaches and trainers alike, i feel this is a great additional tool for those seeking to learn, educate and continually develop themselves and others in hardsytle kettlebell training. Very easy process to follow via the online dashboard, 3 videos to be submitted at the end - Swing/Goblet/Get up for approval and verification. Andrea Du Cane was very prompt at the end verification stage to offer assistance, feedback and critique of the video's in her summary of the videos.

    Even though I had already taken the HKC and RKC in person, I still learned a lot from this program. One of the biggest takeaways for me as a coach was learning new techniques for teaching the Get-Up. Andrea has so many great drills and unique ways to incorporate that exercise into my clients' programs. I also think that it’s a great way to introduce Hardstyle kettlebell philosophies and exercises to folks who are planning on taking the RKC and the HKC! Of course nothing is better than the in-person experience but this is pretty close!

    This was an incredible course, especially for the trainers like me who are unable to attend a course in person. It was humbling for an experienced kettlebell lifter like me to break down, piece by piece each element of the lift. I found out there were several small corrections and adjustments to properly execute the lifts. A great value and money well spent!

    This was my first course - online and ; overall - to get started in the process of certification and to start into the kettlebell Community of HKC and RKC - i can highly recommend the course, material and way the course is set up - you can take all the time you need - re evaluate and work your way up, even so it was never too long on any aspect and provided the right amount of information (video and written instructions and information) and the right topics.
