Teaching Strength as a Skill

Strength is a skill, and can be taught. I teach strength using the Strong First Standards, which are designed to teach strength with minimum risk of injury. The cuing and “Ah Ha Drills” are constantly evolving to make the learning process easier and safer. Kettlebells, when properly used, train strength, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

The swing burns approximately 22 calories per minute, about equivalent to running a 6 minute mile, without the impact of running! The power production of a swing is about FOUR TIMES the weight of the bell. Swing a 16kg (35.2 pounds) bell and produce about 64kg (141 pounds) of force! That makes for muscle that is RESILIENT to injury and seriously STRONG!

ANYONE at ANY AGE can learn to be strong. From where you are TODAY, I can teach you to become stronger. If you are unable to get down and up from the floor or get into a functional squat position we start there and build up the strength to swing a bell. If you are already strong and want to get stronger, we start where you are and build up from there. Strength has no limits! I incorporate “Original Strength” movements of rolling, rocking, crawling, and cross-crawling to help the body remember how to move in a strong, natural way just like when we were small children!

Growing old is NOT for sissies!

As many adults find that they are finally at a stage in life when the kids are grown, they don’t have to work full time, or at all and there are loads of great activities they want to do…YAY! The problem is that over those years of living they did not keep their bodies in the best of condition in order to do all those great activities, OR they did a lot of great activities and got hurt doing them years ago! (that would be me!)

The good news is that kettlebell and body weight training, when done correctly, (this is HUGE!) is safe and amazingly effective at ANY age! Kids do great, “Boomers and beyond” do great!

There are modifications that can make the drills doable for people with mobility issues, and there is nothing SAFER on the joints, than properly done kettlebell drills. I have spent much of my career as a trainer working with retired adults, and I am awed and amazed everyday with the strength and conditioning gains that they make.

I teach strength as a skill that can be taught, learned, and practiced at ANY age and at ANY size. To quote Mark Reifkind, SFG Master, “There is not much that strong won’t fix.”
