Participant Praise for the RKC I Instructor CertificationNYC, October 13-14, 2018

Joseph Rubelowsky, Cleveland, OH Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Colonel US Army

Enlightening. Eureka. WOW moment. Fun. Engaging. Great for mind and body. Chris Holder and Thiago were sooo good. I want to come back next year, same place, same instructors.

I learned so much about my disabilities and what I can do to fix them. It will improve the quality of my life to get my shoulders fixed.

The RKC was extremely educational. It helped me to enhance my skill set and ability to be a stronger teacher. All of the instructors were very knowledgeable about their craft and shared everything they could with us. We weren’t just TOLD what to do, we were encouraged to ask as many questions as we needed. The instructors shared their experiences with us about training KBs with new and seasoned clients.

I loved this certification. We had a group that was prepared to learn more/enhance their skill sets. Most trainings I’ve attended can be boring because those who attend are only doing it for CEU’s, but people who attend the RKC are doing so because of a passion, a curiosity, and to become GREAT at what they do. Holder and Thiago never seemed bored or annoyed/uninterested – they are truly passionate and truly wanted/want us to succeed.

I had the best time learning to perform each exercise in the safest and strongest way. It was a great introduction to teaching a peer and with peers so that I may bring the techniques back home with me to share with my trainer. It gave me a whole new outlook of kettlebell workouts.

Chris and Thiago were incredibly knowledgeable. The fact that Chris is so personable really helped me to relax and focus on what he was teaching. He made me feel very comfortable doing each progression and was able to point out if something was being executed in correctly. He has a lot of respect for kettlebells which helped me gain a different perspective and moved me in a positive direction. He is very good at reading people and their body language. I feel very lucky to have worked with him for this certification.

This certification gives me a rare challenge in my training. I learned new techniques for some of my favorite kettlebell moves. RKC has changed the way I train completely. I am grateful for the experience.

The instructors were very knowledgeable, helped us work through any question we threw at them. They went above and beyond my expectations and did not run us into the ground which helped retain more info on our side.

It is very physically demanding compared to others. I believe it preaches safety more than any other I’ve taken as well. You work hard, but learn a lot!

The 2-day cert was much better than the 3-day cert.

Paul Viviano, Valhalla, NY
Gym Owner / Personal Trainer

I enjoyed participating and learning from excellent instructors, and the students were all extremely prepared and athletic.

All 3 coaches worked so well together. We were given combined knowledge from 2 kettlebell masters and an excellent well-rounded PT who is also RKC.

The material was so easy to absorb. These coaches know what they are doing. They obviously have decades of experience.

I learned an invaluable method with which I can instruct and implement solid technique in fundamental kettlebell movements, from the bottom up and top down.

Chris, Victoria and Thiago did an excellent job teaching the material, peppering it with personal anecdotes, and supporting all of the participants as we worked our way through the weekend. They all seemed very knowledgeable about KBs and their unique backgrounds really complemented the material.

Really loved the course. Chris, Victoria and Thiago are brilliant.

Vanessa Baumback, Forest Hills, NY Psychotherapist

The RKC was a intensive weekend of kettlebell instruction and practice where I learned to hone my skills. The most valuable part was learning how to talk to others about kettlebells and coaching cues for real life practice.

Chris Holder definitely did not disappoint. This is my second RKC with him and I would gladly take more courses led by him. He has a way of incorporating so many real world examples and info that it makes the course applicable to anyone. I thought Thiago brought a lot of useful information as well and could talk from a somewhat different perspective.

Renee Nowakowski, Fishkill, NY

Overall great way to learn how to properly use kettlebells. The course teaches you how to do it and why we do it. Quality is excellent!! Head instructor was very precise. His ability to be able to analyze and correct was truly amazing.

The 3 as a team were great because of the different perspectives.

Very informative and completely immersive experience. Chris Holder has a wealth of knowledge and is able and willing to teach as much as he can. I would recommend him to anyone.

Definitely top tier and very complete in curriculum.

Michelle Sperruggia, Plainfield, NJ

This was a great course and I learned a lot that I didn’t know about using kettlebells and especially about instructing clients on kettlebells. I liked how the instructors made the students all feel comfortable no matter what level they were at. It was obvious the instructors knew what they were talking about and were experts in the field.
