While this program is incredible in its depth, it only involves (and takes) one kettlebell to perform and covers the foundational lifts. I truly believe that with mastery of what I teach in the program, you will be set up to take kettlebells as far as you’d like to go- advanced movements, double kettlebell lifts, kettlebell “flows”, even entering a competition.
Above all, gain rare insight into my overall thought process. This way you can assess different training scenarios and use critical thinking skills to come up with an optimal solution. To do this it truly does take a comprehensive system - and system being a keyword.
It took me 12 months of work to outline organize and complete this training. My life’s work - all the struggles and successes- are reflected in it. So you and your clients can be set up for success.
"All great things are not achieved by just one person. There's always a community of people who have to come together to make the impossible happen." - Mike Salemi
"If the physical goal rises in a holistic system, so does the emotional and the spiritual. All of these goals have to rise in order to accomplish them in an integrated matter. The more I test myself or put myself in an uncomfortable situation, the more I'm going to be a better coach, friend, and able to have empathy for my clients." - Mike Salemi
"Sometimes our greatest gifts are our weaknesses. Having discipline and being hard on ourselves can lead us to achievement but on the other hand, we should be a little bit more gentle with ourselves." - Mike Salemi
"I'm truly here to share, support, and inspire both athletes and coaches to not only realize their truest potential in sport but also when they leave their sport so that they have some type of healthy living philosophy moving forward." - Mike Salemi
