Become a Bell Mechanics Trainer

Our mission is to raise the quality of kettlebell specialists in the industry by creating the best learning experience for professionals out there.

All coaches are required to pass both the online course and a live practical exam.

The in-person exam is led in small groups by our founding trainers to create a personalized & effective learning experience for each individual.

This small group setting allows you to practice and demonstrate clear coaching cues & skill acquisition while showing off your competence to effectively program.

Check out how this all-inclusive educational experience will help you progress as a coach & in your career!

  • Do I have to take the Alumni Review Course in order to attend the in-person practical?

    If you want to pass the practical exam, I highly recommend taking the review course. Plus, it’s included in the price!

  • What’s different about the review course vs the 12 week course?

    The review course runs for 4 weeks and is a practical review to fast-track your practical skills. We won’t be going into detail about theory like in the 12-week BMC.

    TBD. Will be announced closer to the event date.
