The 3rd Annual



I'm a slow loading video.


The Seattle Kettlebell Pro-Am is an annual kettlebell sport competition hosted by Seattle Kettlebell Club.  Beginner, amateur and pro kettlebell lifters compete to be the best lifter in their category (determined by their body weight class and kettlebell weight lifted) and achieve ranks according to the KetAcademy ranking table, in accordance with the rules of the World Association of Kettlebell Sport Clubs (WAKSC).

The mainstage consists of six lifting platforms.  Each flight is either 5 or 10-minutes, where up to six competitors at a time lift in their discipline (jerk, snatch or long cycle) with the goal of completing as many legal repetitions as they can without setting the bells down.  Marathon lifters compete for 30 or 60-minutes each!

One short kettlebell sport set tests a lifter's strength, cardio and endurance capacity. Both training and competing develop and require strategy, discipline, and the character to recognize and separate our physical limitations from our self-imposed mental ones.

The mission of the Pro-Am is to provide the resources, professional equipment and fun extras that entertain everyone who attends, de-mystifies kettlebell sport competitions, and elevates the outcomes for lifters.
