Certified IKKF Kettlebell Trainer Level 2

The CKT Level 2 certification builds on the principles taught in level 1 – proper mechanics/alignment, proper breathing and proper groove (k-bell trajectory and position).  Utilizing this information as a base, the CKT Level 2 certification focuses on double k-bell work with an emphasis on enhanced power, athleticism, explosiveness, strength and a whole new level of work capacity. As with the Level 1 course, the high level focus will be on both the “technical” and “coaching” aspects of each lift.

Assessment

The IKFF prides itself on producing coaches that are the gold standard in the industry. Thus, our criteria for passing is strict.  Attending/participating alone is not enough to obtain CKT status. You must meet the designated criteria connected to the technical and coaching components of the course. All CKT Level 2 candidates must pass a stringent assessment in order to successful complete the requirements and achieve the Level 2 CKT distinction. The assessment is to be the performance of all level 2 techniques. Form is checked to assure effective understanding and performance of the movements. In the case that a candidate is unable to successfully demonstrate competence in one of more of the Level 2 techniques, the student will receive a Certificate of Participation and will need to subsequently demonstrate correction of the techniques. There are numerous avenues in order to accomplish this, including attending a review Level 2 course, testing in person with an IKFF regional representative or by providing video evidence of the corrected techniques. In addition to the assessment, all Level 2 CKT candidates must perform a Fitness Test during the Level 2 course, which consists of: Men:
