About Advanced Training Concepts

Advanced Training Concepts is a fully equipped training facility and the premier Kettlebell Lifting facility in Charlotte. The foundation of Advanced Training Concepts training programs is building functional strength, speed, power, flexibility, coordination, and endurance through kettlebell training, body weight exercises and other modalities.

Through high intensity training programs and professional coaching we are consistently able to produce results. Advanced Training Concepts is in the business of training only those who have the motivation and desire to work hard for their results.

ATC is a private training facility. We are not a commercial gym. Please, there is never a good time to "drop in" or “come check it out", as you might drop in on someone's training session, consultation, or a class in progress. We value the partnerships we have with our members and also their time. Please make an appointment if you wish to visit our facility.
