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!
