StrongFirst kettlebell training

Better Stronger Faster is a kettlebell-based strength training club with classes across Greater Manchester.

We use an age-old tool, the iron kettlebell, to generate major gains in strength, flexibility, performance and overall good health across ourselves and our committed students.

We focus on helping the student Girevik (Russian for kettlebell lifter) to understand how to execute the kettlebell techniques and training in a safe and effective manner. We build on the tools and techniques used by the ‘Soviet Supermen’.

I started kettlebell training around 5 years ago... badly. Going into the gym and assuming I knew what a swing should look like, leaving the gym wondering why I was in pain, “It must have been those kettlebells” I told myself. “Swings must be causing it.” After that I didn’t touch a kettlebell for years until I heard of Strongfirst© and started on a one day course to learn the motions. I worked on training up for SFG 1 and once I started training with proper technique I never felt as bad as I used to. Over the course of my training I saw the differences it made towards other hobbies, such as Krav Maga and bouldering. After seeing the difference made with this tool I was hooked. It really does just make you better! I’d have the whole country try it if I could!

I’m a regular guy, 46 years young, window cleaner by day. My passions include snowboarding, mountain biking, BMX, Krav Maga & KETTLEBELLS!

I started ‘playing around’ with kettlebells a few years ago but really noticed a difference when I applied the Strongfirst© methods. Training with kettlebells has made a huge difference to work and play. I feel much fitter and stronger now than I was at 30!

I am qualified as an SFG Level 1 Kettlebell Instructor and also IKMF Civilian Krav Maga Instructor.
