The Gift

On November 20, 2006 I was given a gift, when Valery Fedorenko selected me as the American Kettlebell Club, Fire / Rescue Advisor. Initially, I didn't have a clue as to how valuable this gift really was. My limited experience with kettlebell lifting was more the product of shrewd marketing than genuine training. Valery changed all that when I attended the first AKC Coaches Certification in January '07, and got my first taste of the what would later be coined, "The Fedorenko Method".

Kettlebell lifting exists outside of the realm of mainstream exercise. It's not weight training, power lifting, or body building. It's not running or cardio. It's not stretching or flexibility training, but yet it's ALL of the above put together in one compact set.
Valery Fedorenko is a world champion Kettlebell Lifter, and the highest caliber Kettlebell Coach on the planet. His vast understanding of kettlebell sport, as well as human movement in general, has allowed Coach Fedorenko to fine tune this 100-year old discipline, into a state-of-the-art, breakthrough training modality.
