"The Bell Mechanics Course will EXCEED your expectations!"

Words straight from the mouths of previous students!
I surveyed the previous cohorts about their experience and here's what they have to say:

What made you sign up for BMC?

"I trust you (Sam) you would teach me all of your knowledge about kettlebells and how I can better serve my clients! And you did, thank you!"

Do you feel more confident executing the KB Skills you learned?

"Yes, I understand many of the kettlebell exercises much better and I have never had such good explanations and instruction on technique and set up before. I still have a lot to learn though and I'm just looking forward to keep practicing."

Do you feel more confident executing the KB Skills you learned?

"So much more confident! I'm able to review my execution of the skills we covered, and others as well, and see clearly where I can improve. And then for the areas where I can improve, I actually know exactly what I should be doing and I know the drills and focus areas I should practice to help get me there! "

Do you feel comfortable coaching these skills to someone else?

"Yes! We learned the skill during the video tutorials, practiced with our video submissions, and reinforced during the live calls - such that I feel confident being in the teaching position!"

Do you feel comfortable coaching these skills to someone else?

"Absolutely. Before taking this course, I was only coaching swings with clients and wanted to expand my knowledge base to add cleans and snatches. I've begun coaching those movements. I feel like this course didn't just add to my knowledge base, it also provided confidence and trust in my own ability to coach and educate my clients."

Do you feel comfortable coaching these skills to someone else?

"Yes. Not only did my KB technique greatly improve, but you gave great instruction on how to coach someone else and trouble shoot with them. Also, I found your instruction great for clients that may not be doing kettlebells too. This course was awesome!!"

Do you feel you have a deeper understanding of human movement?

100%! Not just KB movement exclusively but overall, and my interest is sparked into continuing to dig deeper into this! One move at a time like you showed us so that concepts are easily digestible!"

Do you feel you have a deeper understanding of human movement?

"Absolutely!! The biggest thing I took away from this course was that all the "issues" I have experienced in the past 2-3 years as an athlete, from injuries or pain with running, areas of weakness with KBs, and certain KB exercises where my form can most improve (aka my salsa hips!) are all interconnected! And even better yet is I have the knowledge now to work on specific things to improve and become a better athlete in all those areas. This course has truly been so eye opening for me as an athlete and I couldn't be happier with the knowledge I have gained! "

"I've learned so much more than I anticipated..."

Jenna Bodle

"I immediately got on the waitlist and I will say, I have NOT been disappointed with her course so far! 12 week course with weekly in-depth videos, quizzes, live lectures, homework assignments with direct feedback on our technique, and awesome support! I've learned so much more than I anticipated and have been able to implement the material immediately in my own training & also to help my clients improve their own skills/technique"

"KB Foundations is a game changer!"

Rachel Andrews

The KB Foundations Course is not only helping my training, but I've applied everything I've learned so far with my clients and it's been GAME CHANGING!

"KBF sharpens your coaching eye"

Jenny Lam

“What I love about Bell Mechanics is how Sam teaches us to see in a coaches eye and pin point anything that needs work”

"This course has truly been a game changer!"

Bridgette Karl

This course has been truly a game changer! I dropped the money and I have never looked back! It was the detailed beat by beat breakdown of each movement…when I am teaching classes or in a session, I see it! I have the answers and it is the coolest thing!

"This course has exceeded my expectations!"

Amanda Ranahan

“As a non-coach I signed up for this course to learn more about the science, mechanics and the why behind kettlebell movements. I can say this course has exceeded my expectations in every way! I learned so much about not just KB mechanics, but about breathing and movement in general”

"As a trainer, there was not one lesson where I didn't walk away learning something new"

Lauren Kanski

“From a trainer’s perspective, I’ve done everything under the sun, I speak this language all the time. There was not one lesson, module or part of this course where I didn’t walk away learning something new, refreshed, inspired, in some way to go apply this to all the people that I coach”

"Sam is a phenomenal coach!"

Jess Reilly

“Sam is a phenomenal coach! I knew since the day I met her I wanted to work with her. She knows what she is talking about, she’s humble and she knows how to run a group. You get to learn, get out of your comfort zone, ask questions and become a better coach as a whole”

"You'll be able to incorporate KB skills with CONFIDENCE!"

Kendra Turner

“This was an incredible course! GAME CHANGER for me. You will learn so much as a coach and MUCH more. You’ll be able to incorporate KB skills with confidence for YOUR personal workouts and for your clients. It’s a WIN WIN! Thanks Coach!”

"I decided to try what we learned...her back was happy again!"

Merav Zecharia Gueta

“I have a client who suffers from low back pain every time she lifts heavy weights. I decided to try what we learned in our two sessions with breathing, loaded beast exercise and what a miracle it did! Her back was happy again & we continued training with no pain. Thank you so much!”

The confidence I have in the movement now compared to the beginning (when I thought I knew what was up lol) is unbelievable!

I also feel across the board more confident in my coaching of the movements and being able to better understand and communicate the anatomical side has been fantastic too.
