I chose DTS Fitness Education because of the reputation they have built among top performing trainers at clubs I have worked at. They deliver great value and their instructors show care for every student. Having taken 7 courses through DTS I now have a variety of tools in my arsenal as a trainer to troubleshoot any client training-related problem. As managers, we always look more warmly on candidates with a DTS background because we know their quality of education is top notch!

This comprehensive online course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of the Hardstyle Kettlebell technique, exercises, and drills. It is built on the experience of teaching thousands of students in hundreds of live DTS Fitness Education kettlebell courses. A kettlebell is an effective tool in every athlete's, personal trainer's, or coach's toolbox, yet it involves a steep learning curve. DTS Kettlebell Fundamentals ensures that your learning phase is both short and effective. We cover in complete detail the big three foundational kettlebell movements: the Swing (2 variations), the Squat (3 variations), and the Get-Up. These are the foundation of your advanced kettlebell skills such as the Clean and the Snatch. This course gives you practical skills and maps out the exact action steps from bracing techniques to complete movements and every drill and skill exercise in between.

DTS Fitness Education has been pivotal in helping our new Personal Trainers feel confident in assessing and training potential and current clients. This is why we chose DTS to provide 2 days of onboarding for all new Personal Trainers at Movati Athletic. Their instructors are clear and effective in their communication and delivery. The students have an opportunity to learn, practice with peers, and tests their knowledge to ensure the material can be applied effectively directly after the course. I recommend DTS Fitness Education to all Personal Trainers looking to develop their foundation of training.

Having taken DTS Level 1 over 7 years ago, it remains my top certification. The course really cemented many key principles that I still work with to this day. The team at DTS Fitness Education are able to speak and work with trainers in a way that very few can. If you are seeking a high quality education provider, DTS Fitness Education will not disappoint. I highly recommend them to all health and fitness professionals.

Learn Online

So you’re a certified personal trainer, but you know you need to keep learning? We understand. Once we were certified, we kept working with clients who challenged us and our skills. And we’re grateful for them, because it helped us go deeper and learn more about the human body. It’s critical to keep learning and continue getting better in this competitive field. 

When you learn online, you tap into...

  • The convenience of learning at your own pace, any time you want, for as long as you want. As long as you have a WiFi connection, you can turn any coffee shop, hotel, or make-shift home office into a classroom. If you want to power through our materials in one day, you can, or you can spread them out as you please. 
  • The chance to really learn the material. Our online continuing education courses require you to pass quizzes in order to maximize retention. This forces you to be more involved with the course and the material so that you can get the certificate of completion.
  • A variety of learning strategies. Our online course features articles, videos, online webinars, and more. There is something for every type of learner. 
  • ​Lifetime access to our course. This allows you to utilize the material as you need to, while staying connected. 

I have been taking DTS Fitness Education courses since 2011. The reason I continue to choose DTS is simple – it’s a hands-on approach that doesn’t fail. The amount of knowledge and confidence I experienced after walking out of a DTS certification is unparalleled. And it’s something you want and can apply during your very next client session. DTS truly delivers a world-class experience and I would highly recommend their courses to all health professionals!

DTS simply has produced only quality content. Their courses not only expand knowledge but reminds us what the world of training is supposed to be like. They teach with integrity, practice what they preach, are constantly looking to better themselves, their colleagues, and especially their students. Every instructor cares about you getting the most from the course you take so when you get back to your clients you are IMMEDIATELY a better professional. I have taken FST, Olympic lifting, attended business seminars, and I'm constantly impressed by the devotion of this staff. Thank you for being a consistent source of knowledge
