    Default What can you do with HKC?

    I am signed up for RKC I in November 2017. I am actively working with a coach and training for this. I've read a lot about the HKC and there's one that's being offered in my area soon. I am not a trainer but I would like to begin teaching in evenings and weekends outside of my daily job.

    What can you do with an HKC as far as being a trainer is concerned? Could anyone comment about how they've used HKC to lead classes or private instruction?

    Trying to figure out if this is something I want to do on my path to the RKC in November. I am interested but concerned about return on investment as this is a greater financial commitment than what I had originally planned on. Feedback is welcome.

    Thanks

    Default A whole lot! :)

    Congrats on signing up for your RKC, and if you can make that HKC that's near you, definitely check it out. While the HKC mainly teaches the three core exercises, swing, get-up, goblets squat it also has a focus on teaching, program design, and non-tested movements which are fantastic to use with beginners (while they work up to learning to swing) as well as advanced clients.

    The HKC is a great entry level trainer certification, so if you're looking to get your feet wet a little early, this is a wonderful way to do it. Some others may be able to chime in on this, but armed with the HKC certification and personal trainer insurance, and CPR/AED training (please check your local laws and/or the requirements of the gym you may be teaching in) you should be able to safely and effectively begin leading small groups and/or individuals with the powerful kettlebell basics.

    Here's an article by the one and only Dan John, Master RKC all about the HKC that you might enjoy reading: https://rkcblog.dragondoor.com/why-t...st-everything/

    On a more personal note, even though I've been RKC-II certified since 2011, I find myself referencing the recently updated HKC manual pretty often for it's excellent programming section and the mobility warm-up it details so well.

    Hope that helps!

    Can you zip around and read my HKC articles here? They will give you a beginning. Until then:
    You will learn the foundation of training...both in the KB world and the fitness world at large. Squatting is "this," Hinging is "that." You will learn the best exercise I know for that elusive "everything:" the swing. The TGU provides assessment, movement, rolling, lunging, carrying, and a bunch of other fine stuff in one lovely exercise.

    That's the beginning. You will become a good friend to "safety is part of performance" and discover what you know and what you don't know. I'm a huge fan of the HKC. Many of my best moments in the community have come at HKC events. So, basically, it is a foundational day that knits together so much more.

    Adrienne and Dan thanks for the responses. I have been thinking about it. I was also somewhat concerned about beginning classes with just the 3 exercises and then folks getting dissatisfied or them wanting "more". I can see that there are many man programs that can be created especially if incorporating some other things like the push up etc... Perhaps i could start out with beginner classes and indicating that would start offering other classes in the future for students who can pass proficiency tests...
