NOTE: Since joining StrongFirst headquarters in 2018, I have cut back on my training schedule. I am FULLY booked until 2019-08-20. However, I can refer the kettlebell interested to SFGs that I have personally trained.

StrongFirst Team Leader and Elite Instructor (SFB, SFL, SFG II, SFG), CK-FMS, NASM-CPT; Marketing Consultant

In over 20 years of fitness industry experience, I have designed and delivered thousands of training programs for individuals and groups, helping all sorts of clients progress towards their health and fitness objectives. A lifelong recreational athlete, my life changed in 2007 when I discovered kettlebells. Having seen, tried and tested so many fitness programs over the years—out of a insatiable desire just to know more, to have an educated opinion on offerings in my industry, or out of plain curiosity —it was adding purposeful kettlebell training to my program that delivered the most effective, efficient and incredible body fat melting and physique sculpting results that I’d ever experienced in LESS training time than any other program. It was love at first swing. Totally hooked, I haven’t looked back since.

While I took several kettlebell “instructor” training courses and scoured bookshops and the internet for whatever materials I could find (I now shudder at what cannot be unseen), it was the teachings of Pavel Tsatsouline and his original RKC (Russian Kettlebell Challenge) system that deeply clicked with my beliefs and values about strength & conditioning, as well as those on instructor training. So before I introduced kettlebells to my students, I took my own advice and learned progressively: first with the Hardstyle Kettlebell Certified instructor designation, followed by the RKC and RKCII kettlebell certifications, both taught by Pavel himself and an amazing group of his Master and Senior Instructors. After recertifying several times as an SFG I and II while assisting at instructor certifications worldwide, I was promoted to StrongFirst Team Leader.

Working around my full time Marketing Consulting responsibilities within the StrongFirst headquarters, I still reserve some time to assess and prepare StrongFirst instructors: for kettlebell, barbell, and bodyweight certifications. I travel the world to teach at StrongFirst certifications, spreading our shared passion for strength, beautiful movement, and living fit.
