You’ve been asking for it and now it’s here!
Authored by KBC's Director of Education: Vincent Metzo.
What is this training all about? Why should you take it? Suffice to say it goes WAY beyond the basics.
It’s divided into two parts:
- Part 1: Training for Metabolic Adaptations with Kettlebells
- Part 2: Training for Neurological Adaptations with Kettlebells
- Part 1 covers advanced level concepts on metabolism, metabolic adaption, intervals, ladders, circuits, periodization and more. Vince will discuss various types of muscular endurance and--more importantly--there will be significant drilling on advanced kettlebell techniques and exercises for making sports specific transitions in metabolic program design.
- Part 2 covers training for Neurological Adaptations with Kettlebells and discusses advanced concepts such as lateralization of cerebral function, motor learning, gross and fine motor skills, skill acquisition, the triune theory of brain function, and much more. There will be kettlebell programs/workouts for developing primitive movements (the foundations of motor abilities), gross motor skills, balance, reaction and timing, coordination, and others.
Finally there will be discussions on designing KB programs specifically for endurance athletes. You’ll learn how to design to avoid accommodation and overtraining, active recovery strategies, as well as strategies to correct kinetic chain dysfunction. You will walk out of the weekend armed not only with concrete program designs (that you’ll generate with your classmates) but also an arsenal of “new” KB exercises that you’ve probably never seen before!
More importantly, you’ll know not only how to perform the techniques, but also when (or even if) you should use them with a particular client. There will be advanced work with the kb’s here! Asymmetrical loading. Off balance and stability work. LOTS of fantastic stuff to bring you to the next level as a KBC-trained instructor.

TESTIMONIAL: LEVEL 2
"Hello David, I'm one of the Trainers from Gainesville Health and Fitness that had recently taken the KBC Level 2 certification course with Vince Metzo and I wanted to say it was one of the best continuing education workshops I have attended. Vince was very accommodating and took a lot of time preparing us to incorporate kettlebells into our training. I've already been applying the concepts to my training and my clients and I are having a blast!
You have an amazing instructor on your team and I hope that our team will continue maintaining a working relationship with KBC. Thank you for providing quality education and training, something that can be difficult to come across in the fitness world.
All the best!"
