Why take this course?

Apart from the fact that this is the only course that lays such a proper foundation for kettlebell training, and that the material has been put together over a decade, you should take this course and lay the foundations to become a kettlebell PRO trainer.


How does it work?

Anyone anywhere in the world can participate in this online course, all you need is an internet connection, and recording device in the form of a smartphone, go-pro, or camera.

Directly after you sign-up you will receive several links to download the study material in the form of PDF, audiobook, and/or video. You can then study at your own pace, complete exams, and submit assessments at your own leisure, as long as that’s within the time assigned to complete this course. You will get your own assessor whom you can communicate with and ask questions.


What can do you after passing?

When you successfully pass this course, you will have a sound understanding of how to work safely with kettlebells, use them in training, and/or train clients in the most important and popular kettlebell moves. You will understand how to progress clients step by step from knowing nothing to swinging, pressing and other popular kettlebell exercises.



The material covered is extremely detailed but not complicated nor difficult, anyone can learn what is taught, those who’ve been training for several years, or have a trainer background quite possibly will already know a quarter of the course and can pass with flying colors.


How long does it take?

A seasoned kettlebell enthusiast could potentially go through the material, complete the exams, submit the assessments and pass in two to three days. A novice to kettlebell training could potentially do the same thing in 4 to 5 days. Most people like to take their time and spend several hours a week reading, completing one or two exams and submit an assessment, as long as there is regular time devoted to the course each week, one can complete this course within 4 weeks on average. Each participant will have 3 months to complete the course, no exceptions other than those requests for an extension on physical assessments, meaning that an extension can be provided, for example, to brush up on your technique and submit your video(s) up to 6 months after the start of the course.


Pass requirements

Cavemantraining has an extremely high standard and a 90% pass grade is required to receive a certificate. The exams are open book. The assessments are physical and need to be correct before receiving a pass score, the physical assessments are the only parts of this course for which an extension can be requested, which will be assessed on a case by case basis. There are no physical demands that will be put on the students like having to complete 100 reps of a certain exercise, technique and the ability to teach is what will be judged. When you continue your education with us you will have plenty of opportunities to go through physical and mental challenges to test your ability, this is not that stage.


What’s included?

  • Ebook(s)
  • Video(s)
  • Audiobook(s)
  • Assessor time:
    • Up to 1 hour for private training should you need it
    • Up to 3 hours for assessing submitted video, and communication
      *on average only half of that is consumed
  • Course access
  • Certified Caveman Kettlebell Trainer Certificate


When do I need to re-certify?

Any trainer that advertises their certification needs to re-certify every 5 years. The cost for re-certification is never more than 25% of the initial certification cost. Your previous certification level is automatically renewed if you take the next level certification, whether passing or not. That means if after 4 years you want to stay current, you can take level 3.1 and no matter what, this keeps your L3.0 active, hence, valid for another 5 years.


Does online certification provide the same quality?

Yes absolutely, and even better. Most physical certifications are usually completed within 1 or 2 days, our online certification takes longer than that and provides the student with the time to study properly, and repeat subjects that might require additional work. Each student learns differently and might require different levels of assistance, with our extremely high-quality course each student will receive study material in different formats, audio, visual to learn at their pace and receive assistance from our top kettlebell trainers.

    My name is Grant, I’m a full time CrossFit L1 trainer and part time Strength and conditioning coach in Rochester, N.Y. I spent the last week and a half engulfed in Cavemantrainings online Kettlebell Fundamentals Trainer L3.0 course. After successful completion of the course, I can confidently say it has made me a better coach and athlete. Cavemantraining avoided the tedious and mundane tasks that most online courses seem to follow. I felt engaged and looking forward to whatever lessons were in my line of sight.

    Cavemantrainings course gave me ques I will provide to my athletes, as well as making me aware of incorrect, or subtle mistakes I was making in my movements. I would recommend this to any avid crossfitter, as well as personal trainer that incorporates kettlebell movements in their workouts.

    The Kettlebell Fundamentals Trainer L3.0 is a great addition to any trainers arsenal. Thorough explanations, instructions, corrections, and cues. You are encouraged to use a kettlebell as you read, which greatly improves comprehension of the techniques and reasoning behind them.

    I highly recommend this course to any trainer who uses, or is interested in teaching kettlebells!

    The Caveman Kettlebell Trainer L3 course is full of information. It’s presented in a logical fashion allowing you to move through it without being overwhelmed. The flexibility of the online format is perfect – you could race through the material in a few days or complete it when life allows. Within the course there’s a great mix of practical, theory and research assessments.

    My favourite part of the course was the feedback obtained from my coach during the practical assessments. It was detailed, concise and invaluable, probably worth the cost of the course alone.

    My name is Herman Kaljo and I am passionate about kettlebells and training with them. I recently started a Youtube channel focusing on Kettlebell Training and Reviews.

    I was granted the opportunity to take this course by Taco Fleur himself to vlog about it.
    Getting started with the course I realized from the start that there is a tremendous amount of material to go through – plus it was available in three different forms: the book, on the online course platform, and as audio.

    This course delivered what it promised to deliver – that is – teaching you the fundamentals of kettlebell training in a very comprehensive and practical manner.
    Each movement was broken down into as many little steps as possible, and illustrated by numerous photos and videos from different angles, so that you could learn the most minute details of the technique shown.
    Every lesson ended with a practical exam where you have to demonstrate the skills you acquired by filming your technique when performing the exercises covered in the unit.

    Despite being a busy coach in real life, and having many other commitments, Taco Fleur provided me good feedback on my form relatively quickly after submitting the practical assignments. Any e-mail queries I sent to him were also answered quickly and in a helpful manner.

    I can certainly recommend this course to anyone looking to master the fundamentals of kettlebell training.

    The Kettlebell Fundamentals Trainer L3.0 is a course that I highly recommend to anyone at any level of training. No matter what level you are, you will get something out of this course.The manual is full of Information that is easy to follow and within the course itself there are plenty of video clips as well as audio to suit the needs of all learners. The support and feedback from your assessor as you progress though the course is unique because it is specific to you and how you can improve your skills as you learn. I have used Kettlebells within my own training and with clients for years but this course has given me a greater understanding of the dynamics of using the Kettlebell safely and as a result I am able to lift, swing, push and carry a Kettlebell heavier than before. The course and skills I have learnt has also helped enhance other aspects of my training and I continue on my journey to be a better version of myself everyday.

    Good for the price; very detailed and allows me to grasp the information. I read and listen to the audio simultaneously, then practice with the kettlebells after the fact. Great information and I can’t wait to pass the knowledge on.

    Half way through and on track to complete when I said. Lots of background information about the why’s of doing certain things to help you understand the importance of correct technique over ego. I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking about getting certified in kettlebells.

    Usually one should start with this content but as it happens in life, I already had the one or other certification done and finished with HKC and even more with #cavemantraining. Anyways I did it and I admit I not only enjoyed the refresher of some sorts at some topics but I learned also new things which will help me on my kettlebell journey. If it is injuries or injury prevention, or stretching routines. Even the basics submitted theoretical or by the practice were good and even here I had the chance to adjust some of my mistakes/errors or work on them – like the drop from various positions.
    I have to point out the very well structured certification content which not only offers tons of material if it is mp3, written text, PDF´s or videos material and pictures but also offers private video tutorials if need be or online coaching one on one. I can highly recommend that course & certification to anyone new to kettlebells and also to anyone who wants to educate him/herself to the basics of kettlebell training.
    Thank you #cavemantraining
