Integrated Functional Explosive Training (I.F.E.T)
Our I.F.E.T Boot Camp Instructor Training (Level 1) meets the immediate needs of both independent and facility-affiliated fitness professionals who may not yet be ready to integrate solely kettlebells into the small group environment.

Two of the hottest “trends” in the fitness industry are kettlebells and barefoot training. Often, some kettlebell lifters (blindly citing “tradition”) do KB’s barefoot. Some runners do similarly. This begs some of the following questions:
WHY? Why train barefoot when shoes seem to provide the support and shock absorption needed for optimal performance?
WHAT? What did the “traditionalists” in the former USSR or the runners in Kenya or the Tarahumara in Mexico know that we’re only now starting to figure out?
WHO? Who is barefoot training for? Is it for you? Is it "better?” Should everyone do it? If so, how to get started? “All I need is a pair of Vibrams and I’m good, right?”
The answer to this question—and all the others this train of thought leads to—lies in the function of the human foot.
Dr. Emily Splichal, Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist, is a Senior Instructor with KettleBell Concepts and the creator of the Barefoot Training Specialist® Credential. This 2 ½ hour workshop will provide attendees with a very basic ‘taste’ of kettlebell training as well as basic protocols around barefoot training. Much of the content will come from Dr. Splichal’s Barefoot Training Specialist® course as well as KettleBell Concepts Level 1 Instructor Training.
This course is appropriate for anyone who:

•Introduction to GS. An overview of what GS is, what the IUKL rules are, and what you have to know to get started if you’re interested in competing.
•A basic intro to the GS style snatch, jerk, and Long Cycle. These two techniques are extremely different from what you may have learned before. The idea in GS is to lift as many times as possible in 10 minutes. It’s about saving your energy and being as efficient as possible.
•Extremely basic guidelines on program design in order to peak specifically for a GS competition.
•Breathing techniques. There are extremely specific breathing patterns you use while competing. If you don’t know them, you’ll run out of gas very quickly.
