Hear from Andrea's Clients
Great HKC Instructor
Andrea’s presence really commands a room. I knew she was a great instructor based on her squat instruction at the HKC.

Personalized Instruction from an Intuitive Instructor
Andrea is so incredibly aware, reflective and intuitive. She knew my weaknesses physically and psychologically within minutes and used all of those insights to really focus her training with me. She knew when and how to push me and motivate me. She was able to personalize and fine-tune each drill for every individual. I’m incredibly impressed by the extent of her knowledge and her professionalism all while keeping the environment fun and relaxing.
– Laura Rogers, San Diego – 2016
Awesome Team Leader
Andrea was my Team Leader at this October RKC class and she was a fantastic instructor. I thought my form was OK going into the class and soon found out how wrong I was and Andrea and her team quickly set about correcting my form. Throughout the entire weekend, Andrea was constantly reinforcing correct form and technique. Andrea consistently, yet firmly, reinforced proper form and technique on all exercises throughout the entire weekend. By the end of the class, my form and technique was 1,000% improved and I am thankful to her for her time and effort to help me better at KB lifting. Andrea addressed each student individually as needed and it was a pleasure to have a professional approach to instructing and she was a professional.

Andrea is the Bomb!
I have had a lot of trainers in my time–but if I could only pick one, it would be Andrea. She is unbelievable and has me totally hooked on kettlebells. You can’t go wrong with this gal–be prepared for the workout of your life.

Andrea Addresses Her Client’s Needs
Andrea Du Cane was incredible. No showing off, straightforward, tough love. It was really nice having someone that knew how to address common issues with female clients that are often overlooked.

A Patient, Brilliant Instructor
I had the great pleasure to have Andrea as my RKC recert (master) instructor this past weekend. Andrea always displays great patience, with the right mix of tough love to break down each exercise to make learning fun. For example, she broke down the TGU into four quadrants, with perfect demonstrations, of each movement to the point that I finally felt confident performing this exercise. This was my third time training with Andrea and she always shares with us her vast knowledge in kinesiology and muscle physiology. This greatly helps explain ‘why’ certain exercises are are to performed and if done incorrectly, can have a negative impact on your fitness.
A High-Class, High-Quality Instructor
I have had the good fortune of learning from Andrea in a weekly class, which is one of the reasons I registered for the HKC seminar held in early May in St. Louis Park. I knew that, even if it were to be difficult, I would learn a lot. And, I was right on both counts. The day was extremely rewarding. Andrea is a thoughtful, experienced instructor. Her ability to break down the movements into small steps, helping us focus on each one is exceptional. Her attention to safety and detail are something many instructors overlook. Best of all, she is enthusiastic about all of the good that comes from this sport. I was more motivated than ever to keep practicing and keep learning. There is no one better at this than Andrea Du Cane.
An Outstanding Workshop
I attended Andrea’s workshop here in South Florida this past weekend and can say unequivocally that she is a superb instructor, patient teacher…and tough love administrator! She’s extremely attentive and helpful, correcting and refining positions, technique and philosophy. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to attend the workshop and look forward to maximizing my workouts.

I orginally sought out Andrea for expertise in helping me prepare for the RKC certification. I am very glad I did. In my opinion, Andrea has the best eye for technique and a personal solution to help anyone perform kettlebell exercises with precision and maximum benefit. As a result, as a practicing RKC with many happy clients, I am able to deliver quality instruction at the highest level. I continue to seek advisement from Andrea because I know it will be the best. In preparation for the RKC 2 certification, I once again sought out Andrea. We practiced Z-health techniques. This one session releived the painful symptoms and restored mobility to an ankle joint I severely sprained several years ago that physical therapists, podiatrists, and other therapists have not had succes in treating. I can not wait to see Andrea again for more gains. Furthermore, there is tremendous potential to my own competitive cross country skiing as a result of this technique. I am a former national caliber athlete (participant in 2 Olympic Trials) and readily see what improved ankle flexion could add to my performance. Finally, getting back to RKC 2 certification readiness. I was able to perform a pistol the day after one session. The technique I had orginally sought Andrea for. Without her input, I am certain I would still be struggling with pistols. Andrea is the Technique Master.

I’ve been working out with kettlebells coming up to two years in May, during which time I have had a variety of instructors. I recently took two two hour classes from Andrea DuCane and I almost felt like I was in a beginner’s class. What I mean about that is that I certainly didn’t think that my form was perfect, but I thought I was pretty close. The number of nuances she found and adjustments she made were pretty amazing. She is truly a Master Instructor.

KB Goddess DVD – Excellent!
I find Andrea’s “Kettlebell Goddess Workout” DVD extremely helpful even though I train with a great RKC instructor. I can review the exercises between training sessions or any time I feel like I need a refresher on something. I can double check to be sure I’m doing the exercises correctly. Her instructions are great. They are clear, easy to follow and well demonstrated. I especially like the fact that she designed the tape to hear the correct breathing for the exercises. Getting your breath right is an important part of each exercise. She makes it easy to follow her breathing as well as easy to follow her movements. Andrea has also done a great job laying out a variety of structured workouts plus upper body, lower body and cardio exercises so you can design your own workout. The DVD is full of useful information! I’ve never had the opportunity to train with her personally, but I would love to! Based on what I’ve seen on her DVD, she’s terrific!
