    About the Author

    Since his first kettlebell certification with the Russian Kettlebell Challenge (RKC), Jim has completed four additional application certifications with both the RKC and the American Kettlebell Club (AKC). Jim continues to study the kettlebell's application for sport and performance through workshops under the tutelage of Pavel Tsatsouline, Valery Federenko, Steve Cotter and Marty Farrel to only name a few. And he is actively practicing his craft working with clients, conducting workshops and educating the public. Jim's coaching philosophy is one he shares with his students, clients and colleagues: "My purpose is to create an awareness... to educate coaches and their athletes on the merits of kettlebell lifting both as a training protocol and as a sport...I am here to serve, and to instruct technique that is safe and highly effective".
