Pavel's Russian Kettlebell Challenge Certification Workshop Gives You A Crash Course in Advanced Strength Skills… Ignites New Business Opportunities…
And Propels You Into The Front Ranks of Physical Excellence

Since Pavel Tsatsouline and Dragon Door introduced America to kettlebells ten years ago, this amazing "gym in one hand" has been redefining our nation's strength and conditioning landscape.

Now, personal trainers who incorporate kettlebells into their programs have watched their client base explode. Previous clients have flocked back, attracted by undeniable gains in strength—and loss of body fat! Kettlebells have opened up whole new vistas of training success for personal trainers and their clients alike.

In fact, professionals of all kinds have been rushing to take advantage of the kettlebells' almost magical ability to strip off unwanted fat and turn wretched physiques into the envy of the neighborhood…

Chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, physicians, sports coaches, you name it, have also eagerly embraced the kettlebells uncanny ability to rehab injuries—in particular, back and shoulder injuries.

And, of course, athletic coaches at the school and professional level have been falling over themselves to ensure they and their athletes gain the competitive advantage almost guaranteed by proper kettlebell training.

Then, the police and military — whose very lives can depend on their physical strength and conditioning levels — have jumped on kettlebells as the quick and very handy answer to fast and permanent strength and cardio gains.

With the kettlebells growing popularity as the exercise tool "that does it all"—be it for the professional athlete or simply average fitness-Joe looking for a more effective workout- there's a rising demand for highly skilled and competent kettlebell instructors.

And there's ONLY ONE KETTLEBELL CERTIFICATION PROGRAM in the United States that delivers the depth and breadth of core competencies critical to successful kettlebell instruction… Pavel's Russian Kettlebell Challenge Certification…

An enthusiastic following of leading fitness and athletic authorities in the country, not to mention trainers, doctors and therapists have rushed to agree:

Dr. Dennis Koslowski, Chiropractor, ART specialist and the first American to win Olympic Medals in Greco-Roman Wrestling (Bronze in 1988, Silver in 1992), has stated "If I could've met Pavel in the early 80's, I might have won two Gold medals."

"As a school teacher the RKC certification was the best thing that I could do for my students.I highly recommend the RKC certification course to personal trainers, teachers and Olympic weightlifting coaches in their development of athletes with whom they work."—Mike Burgener, Buena Vista, CA

"I have both ACSM and NSCA certifications. Pavel's RKC was light years beyond theseMuch more practical and useful information.—Glenn R. Hoey, ND, CSCS, Naturopathic Physician, Strength Coach, Wenatchee, WA

"In my Massage Therapy business... I have literally dozens of clients who have had problems that have nagged them for years fixed in a few sessions with me, most of the time due to applying principles I have learned as a direct result of the RKC weekend. This is good for business and gratifying as well.

Anyone in any branch of the health industry, massage therapists, MDs, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, etc, will benefit from the knowledge of the human body gained at the RKC.

I am stronger, healthier, have better endurance and in better shape at the tender age of 35 than I have ever been in my life, even when I played football in high school. I have gone from a squishy-soft 315 pounds to a rugged 275 and am still losing fat…. I have become an example to others in my life, most notably my father (in his late 60's) who after decades of being extremely overweight, LOST JUST OVER 100LBS IN 13 MONTHS. He saw what I did, made up his mind to change and dropped more than double the amount of flab I lost.

The RKC weekend was one of the defining moments in my adult life. I am speaking from the heart, I cannot understate the positive impact the RKC experience continues to have on my daily life. There are few opportunities like it in this day and age and anyone interested in "becoming a better man" owes it to himself to go."—David Whitley, Nashville, TN

"I'm a training specialist for the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement. Since attaining RKC status, I've been able to train the head Officer Survival Instructor in kettlebell techniques; and have also convinced him to add kettlebell workouts to our Special Agent Training Class.

As a result of implementing kettlebells in our training regimen, I firmly believe we are creating a safer and more resilient cadre of Special Agents for the protection of the citizens of the State of Florida. I don't believe any of this would have been possible had I not attended the RKC Certification Program!"—Craig T. O'Connell, FDLE Leadership Center


The business rewards and personal results from attending Pavel's Russian Kettlebell Certification have often been spectacular:

"I have been a personal trainer since 1987, and frankly, I've never seen anything like the excitement generated by Russian kettlebells. This age-old art has infused my business with a new level of passion I've never seen before, and it's spreading like wildfire.

Let's start with the financial benefits. I've more than doubled my personal training income since becoming Russian kettlebell certified, which has enriched my career as well as my personal life. This past Thanksgiving I was actually able to leave the gym behind and whisk my wife away on a rugged 2-week trip to Costa Rica, something that simply would not have been feasible before.

December 2004 was one of my busiest months ever. Business was up, and clients were in a generous mood. My wife couldn't help but note the huge increase in holiday tips I received, which nearly covered the cost of our Costa Rican adventure!

"What do you attribute it to," she asked. "The economy isn't that great." I immediately summed it up in one word: "KETTLEBELLS!"

The bottom line is, my clients were feeling generous because they were grateful for what they'd gained (and lost!) over the past year! I've had incredible results across the board with all my clients, male and female, since kettlebells entered the picture.

One of my longtime clients lost 26 pounds in six weeks. His sister and her husband, visiting from Ireland over the holidays, were totally amazed at both his fitness level and this odd "new" form of training.

A newer client lost three dress sizes and really toned up in the span of two months that she had to prepare for her wedding.

A masseuse called me to inquire about kettlebell training because she couldn't help but notice the change in muscle tone our mutual client had achieved.

Success stories like these—and there are many—made for a lot of very happy and fit clients with a renewed interest and commitment to training.

Needless to say, these kinds of results also brought a lot of new business my way last year. I now have a physical therapist sending me clients because of the improvements he's seen in his patients' strength and mobility after sending them my way.

"Beyond the professional gains, Russian kettlebells have really benefited me on a personal level as an athlete…"

I am 46 years old and have pursued a very rugged and adventurous outdoor lifestyle for as long as I can remember. As a result, there were a few old injuries that had really started to dog me in the past couple of years.

Since becoming KBC certified, however, things have changed. I have made amazing strength gains, but perhaps more importantly in terms of improving my quality of life, I have increased the flexibility and joint mobility in my hips and shoulders tremendously. Both have been invaluable in terms of increasing my enjoyment of rock climbing, skiing, and hiking, not to mention improving my performance exponentially!

My endurance, strength-to-weight ratio, core strength, static strength, grip strength, and flexibility are all markedly greater than before I started training with kettlebells and incorporating Pavel's other techniques.

Pavel has a way of cutting through the B.S., and he gave me the essential information and techniques that work, both for my clients and for me personally. No question about it, becoming a Russian Kettlebell Certified Instructor is the best move I have made in 18 years as a trainer.—Gus Petersen, RKC, Denver, CO

"My income has nearly doubled since taking my RKC cert, all without any extra investment in time (from about $30,000 to $60,000)."—Jason C. Brown, RKC, Roslyn, PA

"Since attending the April 2003 Kettlebell certification my business has expanded to the point that my wife and I were able to open up our own Fitness Facility in La Jolla , California in November of 2004.

Our business was expanding so much last year, it didn't make any sense financially for us to stay at the gym we were renting space from before we opened up the center. I highly recommend that any strength and conditioning coach, trainer or fitness enthusiast take the Kettlebell Certification as it will clearly give you the edge you need to stand out in your community.—Franz Snideman RKC, La Jolla, CA

"I am the owner of a physiotherapy practice and strengthening is an integral part of recovery. Unfortunately, I have found that most conventional strengthening systems are impractical for most of my clients for various reasons. I had excellent results personally with kettlebell training and felt that it would be applicable to my clients as they are available in a variety of weights.

Like most everything I have experienced from DragonDoor, the course exceeded my expectations. Since the course, I have successfully used the kettlebells for rehabilitation. I have also run up to three classes per week after work hours at a local gym because of the buzz that has been created. I should note that there have been no injuries in the past year and a half since I started teaching, which is remarkable considering many of my students are also clients who have been recovering from injuries.

Although I have never advertised these classes, I am already busier than I want to be with teaching due to the word of mouth generated by my students. This exposure certainly hasn't hurt my physiotherapy practice either.

"At last I can offer my clients a time-tested and effective anti-aging fitness program rather than vaguely telling them they need to strength train and stretch daily."

The kettlebells have solved my previous dilemma of effective exercise prescription and I truly believe have started a lot of people who otherwise would never before participated in an exercise program down a lifelong path of better health and fitness.

I now feel like I am a complete health care provider with the skills I can pass along a kettlebell instructor."—Keith Weber, BScPT, RKC, Red Deer, Canada

As a life long athlete, it was extremely hard to retire from professional basketball of 14years because I felt I lost my identity as an athlete. Kettlebells has brought back the athlete in me.

Pavel's instruction and observations were very sharp and always cut to the cause of difficulties. The RKC course was far more useful then my previous fitness certification (ISSA). Material is clearer, there is more hands on and I feel that Pavel and Dragon Door offer much better support in the long term. Quality and scope of info was just right for a 3-day course. I had an awesome time! It was well worth the cost and the flight from oversea and I look forward to training with Pavel, the senior RKCs and the other course members in the future." —Don Stevenson, Fitness Trainer, Sydney, Australia
