Advancing Kettlebell Sport

open to all fitness backgrounds — novice and advanced athletes, fitness professionals and business owners — who want to learn, share expertise and ideas, and help advance kettlebell sport

Following the success of Women’s International Kettlebell Sport Summit 2016, this year’s Kettlebell Sport Summit continues the dialogue we started to help advance kettlebell sport. Our intention is to offer a Women’s Summit every other year, and a Summit including men and women every other year.

Join us for more educational presentations, panel discussions, networking sessions, technique instruction, and research study participation.

NEW THIS YEAR: We are offering Coach/Business Track sessions (focusing on program design, marketing, etc) that will run concurrently with Athlete Track (technique, GPP) sessions.

All Summit attendees get free competition registration to the Chicago Kettlebell Open on Saturday, August 19. More details below.

Registration Fee includes: attendance and participation in the two-day Summit, a manual, and a free competition registration to the Chicago Kettlebell Open.

Early Bird Registration ends June 30, 2017.
