Richard Sherrod, World Kettlebell (WK) Coach
Other Certifications: WK Master Trainer, WK Judge, HIIT Conditioning Certified
Throughout my life, I have always been very active and practiced healthy eating. I've trained for and competed successfully in motocross racing, bodybuilding, powerlifting, inline speed skating, bicycle racing and now kettlebell sport.
For several years in the 1990's I taught and Coached Junior Speed Skating under World Inline Team Coach Mark Muse.
In 2006 I found the kettlebell while searching for some Olympic weight equipment on Ebay. I was intrigued by this "ball with a handle" and so I ordered a few kettlebells to try. I soon learned that there was actually a sport behind this bell. I was fascinated and hooked!
In March 2007 I attended a Certification under Valery Fedorenko and the World Kettlebell Club and became a Coach for the sport. I soon found work at several local gyms and began teaching group kettlebell classes. I've since taught hundreds of people to use the kettlebell for fitness, health and even to compete in the sport.
I've competed in Kettebell Sport myself winning several National and World titles in kettebell lifting....I will call the World titles just National titles because they were not really attended very much by the Russians who would make me look very weak!
As a Master Trainer for the World Kettlebell Club I have licensed several people to teach kettebell training. While that program has been discontinued and can still license personal trainers to teach under my name.
I've ran group kettlebell and individual in person and online training now for over 7 years. Come experience Kettlebell fitness at it's finest!
