I want to train my PT clients with Kettlebells but I’m not KB certified. In the past – I would tell them not to train with instructors who have not been properly KB certified/trained. But now I feel like I’ve limited myself from using a major (main stream) piece of fitness equipment. I know there is a fine line in KB trained instructors. I see so many teaching the swings in an unsafe way. Am I being over cautious?
Sure, why not, if you are proficient and can properly demonstrate, also it is weight appropriate, sure. I am not TRX certified but use it almost daily. I have no desire to get certified in KB’s, but I adapt it into my workout if it calls for it. If you don’t feel comfortable using them in your own workout then I would not recommend you use them to train someone else, simple-period!
