Well I did a 16 hour very intense Kettlebell certification course with Agatsu Inc. on the weekend in Toronto. I passed all the test and I am now a Level one certified Kettlebell instructor. Agatsu is the oldest, biggest, and best Kettlebell certification company in Canada. Shawn Mozen, the presdient of Agatsu Inc. is an amazing instructor and extremely strong and powerfeul.
We had to do 16 hours of training with the kettlebells, teach the skills toe veryone else, do an exam on knowledge, and pass a couple of cardio and endurance tests. The last endurance test you were not allowed to put the kettlebell down unless told to or you would fail and have to take the course again.
The hardest test was called “Chrissy”. You did 45 burpees, 20 swings, 40 burpees, 25 swings and etc,. until you get to 5 burpees, and finish with 45 swings. Shawn said if you are under 25 minutes you are in good shape, 15 minutes is extremely fit. I got 11 minutes and 51 seconds. First one done in the griup. Second guy was 15 minutes and 51 seconds. Last person was over 22 minutes. Shawn’s best time is 9 minutes and 45 seconds. That is the fastest time to date.
So anyway I got new stuff to add to all my classes as well as I am starting a Kettlebell class soon. Probably in June.
