Proper kettlebell training will help you build muscle in all the right places, develop game-changing levels of strength, boost your stamina to a level where you hardly ever seem to get tired, all while being joint-friendly and actually IMPROVING your mobility.

The Kettlebell Virtual On-Ramp course will take you from zero to hero with kettlebell training, going into great detail on every major exercise and taking you through 18 full workouts where you get to follow along and integrate your skills into a workout format.

  • The combination of six instructional classes and eighteen full workouts will get you lifting kettlebells like a pro by the end of the course.
  • Never let time be an excuse again!  Once you know how to perform all the exercises most workouts will be only about 45 minutes.
  • If you’ve been looking for something that will take both your performance AND your physique to the next level, kettlebell training is unquestionably the way to go.  There is a reason they are a favorite of athletes who have great bodies and are beasts in their sport: wrestlers, BJJ athletes, MMA fighters, and so on.
  • Tony and Mira have been training extensively with kettlebells for over a decade.  They have studied directly under some of the biggest names in the strength & conditioning world, including Pavel Tsatsouline who is the founder of StrongFirst and is credited for starting the kettlebell revolution in the United States.
  • Their brick-and-mortar gym, Industrial Strength, has proven itself to be one of the best in the world for taking people with no prior kettlebell experience and building them up to achieve extraordinary performances on swings, Turkish get ups, and snatches.  Now, you can learn directly from them with the same cues and tips they give their in person students – get ready to take your kettlebell training to the next level!
  • Kettlebell training requires minimal equipment and space; we recommend just 3-4 kettlebells to get started, but you can even use just one single one if that is all you have.

What will you learn?

You may have seen people train with kettlebells before – possibly online, or maybe even in person at the gym.  You have probably also seen quite a variety of different ways that people use kettlebells, and it can seem confusing … how do you know what is right?  You’re interested in training, but you want to make sure you do it right and don’t hurt yourself.  The Kettlebell Virtual On-Ramp course is your solution.

To give you an idea of what this course is all about, it is helpful to understand how it came to be.  When people decide to start training kettlebells in person at Industrial Strength, they first go through a one-month course called “On-Ramp” that teaches them everything they need to know in order to thrive in classes.  Knowing that people all over the world are interested in training at home, and that kettlebells are the ideal equipment for at home workouts, Tony and Mira decided to create a “Virtual Kettlebell On-Ramp.” You will learn the same things they teach in person, but you can do so anytime, anywhere at your convenience.

In this course you’ll learn everything you need to know in order for you to do almost any kettlebell workout imaginable.  Tony and Mira will go through in painstaking detail all the most important concepts and technique points to make sure you know exactly what you’re doing, and also what many of the common mistakes are so you can be sure to avoid them.

One of the keys to Tony and Mira’s teaching style is their “I go, you go” format.  In most of the classes you’ll see one person do the technique, then you get a chance to do it yourself while another person goes.  They’ll tell you exactly what to do, how many reps, and what to think about, and then you’ll watch it be done, and then you get your turn to do it yourself.

The Kettlebell Virtual On-Ramp course is divided into three phases to help you stay focused and make progress.  Each phase will start with two instructional classes where you learn the movements for that phase using primarily the “I go, you go” format described above.  After the two instructional classes you then get six workout classes in the phase.  During the workouts you’ll follow along as either Tony or Mira runs two of their students through a workout using the “I go, you go” format, and you get to follow along with them!  Each phase also includes an appendix where you can go back and review any specifics that you’d like.

By the end of the course, you will have taken 24 full classes with Tony & Mira, and you will be ready to rock for all the kettlebell training your heart desires!  You can do workouts on your own, or you can subscribe to the monthly membership here and follow along with the in-person classes that they run at Industrial Strength, which you’ll be able to stream On-Demand anytime from anywhere.

Kettlebell Virtual On-Ramp Testimonials

After twelve years of supplementing my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training with cardio, the pandemic hit and I needed some sort of strength training option at home. I also wanted to avoid hurting myself in the process. Industrial Strength’s Kettlebell Virtual On-Ramp and On Demand program were it. In the Virtual On-Ramp, Coaches Tony and Mira do an extremely effective job of explaining the movements, avoiding common pitfalls, and building proficiency so that when the weight gets heavy you have the confidence that your technique is sound. The On-Demand Kettlebell classes help me stay consistent with my workouts and introduce plenty of new techniques. After a year of training online with Industrial Strength, I feel stronger than I have in a long time.

Industrial Strength’s Virtual Kettlebell On-Ramp course provided me with the foundation I needed to safely and effectively add training with kettlebells to my weekly fitness schedule. Their attention to detail regarding proper form is outstanding and I would recommend this program to anyone starting-out with kettlebells. I feel like I’ve learned a skill-set that will pay dividends to my health over the years. After completing the entire course, I was able to jump into in-person classes with them in Portland, and have been enjoying the added benefits of training with kettlebells to support my active lifestyle.
