My name is Dave Randolph and I have over 15 years experience teaching safe and effective kettlebell use. Certified by IKFF,RKC, AKC, KBA, author of the Ultimate Kettlebell Workbook, Spartan Warrior Workout, The Ultimate Guide to Olympic Weightlifting and Action Movie Hero workouts.
I’ve taught thousands of people how to use kettlebells safely and effectively to get them stronger, more athletic, lose fat, build muscle and increase endurance.
Rather than recreate the wheel I checked several of the kettlebell certification groups and after talking with them all about their goals and their teaching methodologies I decided to team up with Jason C. Brown and Kettlebell Athletics.
I found Jason's no nonsense approach refreshing and free from all the hype and politics surrounding kettlebells and which "style" is best.
