    Default Passing RKC

    Back in the day on here there were always a ton of threads about training for the RKC, and how to best prepare for such a long, hard weekend. With some of the changes over the last few years it seems like people think the standards have dropped. Let me be the first to remind everyone that nothing has changed.

    The single best recipe for success at the RKC begins with the HKC and time spent with a local RKC honing technique and following a well-grooved path that everyone who has passed the RKC has traveled. Don't try to forge your own path - chances are you have no idea which way is best at this point.

    After another RKC on the weekend where too many people turned up unprepared I wrote the following: The path less patterned | readpt.com

    Great post as always Andrew. Hopefully Ireland's next batch of RKC candidates in March read this!

    Maybe it's because I'm not rolling in money like most personal trainers (LOL) but I can't afford to go to things and not walk away with a successful result. Given the cost of actually attending an RKC - the course itself, and then there's often airfare and accom on top - a little bit for some RKC run PT doesn't seem extravagant. And it certainly makes the weekend much easier.

    Do you think you'll get many Scots attending...?

    I trained for the RKC with an RKC instructor specifically for an ENTIRE YEAR before taking it for the first time in 2010. The role of preparation cannot be overstated. While the standards of the fitness industry may be declining, that is certainly NOT the case with the RKC. Glad you brought up this topic, Andrew

    Ha ha! And there was me thinking that your mattress was stuffed full of $50 notes from all the certs! Yeah, it's a big expense in and of itself, not counting the accommodation, flights etc.

    I'm surprised that so many people don't get in touch with their local RKC for a bit of guidance on it. I'd been training with kettlebells for a few years myself before I started training with Huon and Petra and the difference was huge. Even then I didn't pass on my initial attempt and had to try again the following year. It's no mean feat. I was really quite surprised at the number that passed in Sydney recently. I imagine that it might be a similar story here.

    As regards Scots, I've no idea mate. Adrian is hosting it in Dundalk and all I know is that there are 75 places available. I don't know how many have signed up yet. He's got a great facility there so it should be a great experience for everyone. I just hope that they take heed.
