Mighty Cast 68: Certified or Certifiable?

Do you need more certification?

When Chris was asked, “Are you certified to teach kettlebell training?” by a client, he answered…

“Why, yes I am.”

To which he was asked, “And what certification do you have?”

“I’ve pressed a 48kg kettlebell overhead for 20 reps.”

Do you NEED more certification?

This is the question we set out to answer in this week’s episode of The Mighty Cast.

We Discuss…

  • Certifications and when they’re needed or not needed.
  • Certification bodies that are great… and others that fall short.
  • Chris’ experiences with courses (weightlifting, medical & otherwise)
  • Chris’ current certifications
  • Certification wisdom from others (shout out to Pippa!)
  • Other overlooked observations (health & safety, programming, poor form)

And in the end, we leave you with some practical advice on when it’s a good idea to pursue further training… and when experience and hard work may be a better use of your time.
