WHAT IS A STRONGFIRST INSTRUCTOR?

sfg.png

Instead of preening in front of a mirror, our instructors live by the StrongFirst Code:

I am a student of strength

I am a quiet professional

Strength has a greater purpose.

under a StrongFirst Certified Instructor—you are learning from the best.

StrongFirst school teaches lifting skills with military precision—and  has rigorously tested them.

 

"Strength cannot be divorced from health.”

 

A StrongFirst certified instructor will treat you as a “student of strength.” The experience of training with one of our professionals is akin to martial arts practice—with the mutual respect and attention to detail that it implies.

CARDIO

Cardio training is the ability of our bodies to take in, transport and use oxygen while boosting our cells called Mitochondria.
There's no point in being strong and flexible if you can't do the movement more than once or twice without sucking wind. 
There are programs designed to create a heart of elastic steel with one reasonably valued kettlebell. Be sure to ask us about the differences in Cardio Training: Vascular and Respiratory and how to take your first swing.  

Training correct breathing patterns can have huge impacts on heart health. Wrong breathing patterns can have the opposite which leaves our body acidic - There are many ways to achieve cardiovascular health. One of the best ways is knowing how to move with fast with weighted tools. 
“Correct” kettlebell training has been known and studied to “out-do” and “out simplify” other modes of training. Specifically, its technique has the ability to initiate a brief burst of effort similar to kickboxing or sprinting called “Kime”.
