StrongFirst is a school of strength. We teach men and women how to quickly and safely reach high levels of strength—without interfering with their duty, job, or sport.

StrongFirst employs several effective modalities—kettlebells, barbells, and bodyweight—but one set of universal training principles. As the motto of the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program goes, “One mind, any weapon.”

StrongFirst sees eye-to-eye with Professor Yuri Verkhoshansky: “Theory without practice is as limited as practice without theory.” Our methods are scientifically and empirically-based and have a proven record with professional athletes, elite military and law enforcement operators, as well as regular folks who have decided to be weak no more.

Our instructor team includes national champions and their coaches, military operators, first responders, law enforcement officers, elite martial artists, performing strongmen, team doctors, and other high-end strength professionals.

StrongFirstuser Courses and instructor Certifications are offered both nationally and internationally.
