Kettlebell sPorts

If you think of kettlebells as a supplemental fitness tool, think again. Kettlebells are a whole new ballgame when it comes to improving your mental and physical metrics. It pushes the boundaries of human musculoskeletal capacity to do more, heavier, and longer.

Kettlebells are a highly competitive sport. Kettlebell athletes around the world train for decades to win championships and set world records in biathlon, longcycle, and snatch events.


Kettlebells can easily awaken a lethargic nervous system. Kettlebells are the perfect way to maximize your physical abilities in a minimal amount of space. While most people are attracted to the efficiency of kettlebells because they can fit them into their busy lives, some people enjoy them as a challenging sport. Kettlebell sports compete to see who can do the most in a 10-minute period. It’s a test of physical strength, patience, and persistence, and ultimately, it’s about discovering a better version of yourself.


Kettlebells may look simple, but they contain a lot of knowledge about sports mechanics and physiology. This is why professional training is necessary. Many people are practicing kettlebells without proper training and unknowingly develop bad habits such as overstraining, hyperventilation, and hyperextension.

Experienced kettlebell sports coaches help their students improve their skill level and avoid falling into these pitfalls at the same time. By acquiring professional skills, you’ll not only be able to increase your lifts quickly, but you’ll also ensure your safety.


LEVEL 1 Coach

This is the first step to becoming a professional coach. You can organize a kettlebell lifting sport meetup, or any type of kettlebell class. Do you think it's hard to train someone as a Level 1 coach? Everyone is a student in front of a kettlebell and we are each other's coach.

LEVEL 2 Coach

Level 2 coaches, who are still amateur athletes and are beginning to mature in their technique and teaching, become adept at identifying and compensating for the shortcomings of the students they coach. They are also more willing to learn and challenge themselves to find their own shortcomings.


Level 3 coaches, who have a good blend of player and coach experience, can provide amateur athletes with an intermediate bridge to the professional ranks. They can be involved in training Level 1 and 2 coaches, and are more than capable of building a professional team.


Master coaches have at least 10 years of experience as athletes and coaches, respectively. They know what it takes to prepare you mentally, not just physically, and they inspire athletes with their mere presence, raising their consciousness.



Kettlebell sports have been around for about 60 years. In 1962, the first rules for the sport were established and it was recognized as an official sport in Russia. It was later recognized in the countries of the former Soviet Union. From this point on, coaching know-how was accumulated and “academies” for kettlebell sports were created and began to produce champions. All of them have an honorable history and have their own training methods. Some of the most well-organized academies are KETA Saint-Petersburg Academy in St. Petersburg, Chelyabinsk Chelyabinsk Academy, Rybinsk Rybinsk Academy, Smolensk Smolensk Academy, Lipetsk Lipetsk Academy, Kaluga Kaluga Academy, Far East FarEast Academy

The KETA Kettlebell Academy is led by founder Sergey Rachinski and five master coaches: Sergey Merculin, Ivan Denisov, Alexander Khvostov, and Ksenia Dedukhina. They are all Hall of Fame inductees and have earned the HMS rank. As of 2022, there will be no more than 20 people in the world with the HMS rank. In keeping with this prestige, more than half of the Russian national team is or has been trained at the KETA Academy. With its strong athletes and coaching staff, KETA Kettlebell Lifting Academy is one of the best kettlebell academies in Russia and the world.

"Our mission is to teach kettlebells the best we can
and to help anyone who asks to learn."
Sergey Rachinski
