Training the Trainers / WKC Fitness License


It's been just about a year since the AKC / WKC officially designated me as a Master Trainer capable of providing license to the World Kettlebell Club Fitness Protocol. I was with the AKC in the infancy of this program, down in the trenches, testing the protocol with my students, helping prepare the official WKC Fitness Manual, as well as the Master Trainer's Manual.

I've licensed nearly 60 individuals around the country. From Maine to Florida, from Houston to Wisconsin, they've all made the trek to NYC and Long Island solely for the coveted WKC License. I've personally trained some of the most knowledgeable and physically fit men and women I've ever come across. Exercise physiologists, professional sport team trainers, personal trainers, marathon runners, fitness center athletic directors, gym owners, group fitness specialist, weight loss coaches, cross-fit professionals, firefighters, police officers, wrestlers, Olympic lifters, hockey players, high school coaches, boxers, professional strongmen, boat racers, yoga teachers, pilates instructors, mixed martial artists, doctors, lawyers, chiropractors, as well as kettlebell instructors have all have crossed the threshold into my gym.

Why would such highly qualified people, with the most impressive of resumes, travel clear across the country for a piece of paper from the World Kettlebell Club?
