Agatsu training is known world wide for producing well rounded generalists with incredible fitness standards. Our approach to training great generalists involves challenging people to develop their weaknesses until they become strengths. This is exemplified in the testing for the Agatsu Level 2 Kettlebell Instructor Certification. Its demanding criteria will challenge anyone to round out their abilities and take them to new heights. A person who scores an overall percentage of 75% is considered well rounded and anyone scoring an %85 or higher is part of a select group world wide.
This year challenge yourself to take on the Agatsu Fitness Standards.
