History of Kettlebell Training

Benefits of Kettlebell Training

Inform your own knowledge so that you can effectively communicate the benefits of kettlebell training with clients by discovering the many reasons to integrate kettlebell exercises into a training programme. 

This module takes a balanced approach, so you can also expect to discover the disadvantages of using this equipment. You’ll learn when to use a different piece of kit as well as exactly what alternatives should be considered. 

Kettlebell Movements

This vital module will teach you how to perform and identify a series of kettlebell movements, the techniques required to perform each exercise and how to modify the movement effectively. 

You’ll also learn about muscle group activations for each exercise so that you can effectively incorporate as part of a well-thought-out, balanced workout.

Planes of Motion and Lifting Styles

This part of our kettlebell coaching courses introduces the planes of motion and discusses the reasons why a balanced exercise programming must include all three planes. As a follow-up from the kettlebell movements module, you’ll explore how each kettlebell exercise meets the criteria for these three planes.

Gaining a specialist kettlebell qualification will open up a wealth of further career opportunities, making you more employable but also allowing you to market yourself as a specialist in this specific area of fitness.

Heather Hacking, Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer.

Heather Hacking

Founder of Heather Hacking PT

Fantastically Structured & Well Organised

As a mother of three children after spending the past nine years building her career as a solicitor, Heather made the decision to follow a life-long passion for health, wellness and fitness, and pursue a career as a personal trainer.

Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!

After graduating I started my fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so thrilled! I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from.

Invaluable practical experience!

Before OriGym Ramnik was facing redundancy after a 10-year career. With an existing interest in health and fitness, Ramnik knew a role helping others to reach their goals would suit his personality and ambition. Searching online, he signed up to the Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Trainer course

I absolutely made the right decision to choose OriGym! I’m very grateful for their continued support and their amazing tutors. They are really encouraging, helping to build your confidence to succeed. OriGym’s approach to flexibility encouraged me to study in my own time through online assessments and tutorials. Perfect for a busy parent juggling responsibilities.

My career since has gone from strength to strength. I set up my own brand whilst studying, creating a home-based studio where I train my clients. I also work as a Group Fitness Instructor, have set up my own HIIT fitness event and work with local academies encouraging children to enjoy exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Jessica Lee

Olympic Track Cyclist

The Best Course Provider

Jessica is a track sprint cyclist specialising in the keirin and has represented her country at the Asian Games and recent 2020 Olympics. Jessica choose OriGym to study her Personal Training course and specialist Level 5 in Nutrition course after being recommended by friends.

From a sports background I have always been passionate about sport, for every elite athlete passing on knowledge and expertise is a good continuum from what I've already achieved. Although this is starting something new, it's also building on something that I already have. 

I reached out to friends who have done similar courses and OriGym was mentioned as the course to go to. After I enquired, Michelle called the next day and was really organic and genuine in our conversations, whereas other providers sent a generic email where I still had to do more research myself.

As an olympian a mission is to always pass on experience and knowledge. I'd look to eventually have my own company and client base to really pass on my passion and maybe even help create a new olympian in the future!

I have had such a wonderful experience with Origym. I started and completed my Level 2 Gym Instructor theory within lockdown and passed my practical after lockdown. The Origym tutors were super helpful with feedback on work. Also, the programme design had lots of information and I could work at my own pace!
