Selected to Teach Kettlebells by StrongFirst

By Todd M. Cambio | January 28, 2015

I am excited to finally let you know had the honor of being accepted by StrongFirst from a select group of my peers from the SFG II ranks to teach StrongFirst’s licensed curriculum in one day courses.

I have officially signed my StrongFirst contract and already have two courses listed with StrongFirst!  

After 9 years of owning and operating Precision Fitness I have formally moved on and am very excited about this opportunity to share my passion for kettlebells. 

I feel there are so many misconceptions out there about kettlebells and I will work vigorously to educate and change those misconceptions!

#1 misconception: “Kettlebells are bad for my back.”

Absolutely NOT True!  Bad form and poor instruction is bad for your back.  Kettlebells taught correctly are good for your back.

#2 Misconception: “My trainer knows kettlebells”

Not to pick on anybody, but unless you have been to a one day course or a 3-day certification, and “practiced” kettlebells for at least 6 months (after attending a SFG course or Cert), you or your trainer do not know kettlebells.  Personal trainers do not know kettlebells.  CrossFit does not know kettlebells. 

I teach Russian Hard Style, so StrongFirst (and the RKC) is where it’s at.

#3 Misconception: “I can learn them myself.”

If you are reading a book, watching YouTube or DVD’s on kettlebells, stop now and sign up for a StrongFirst Course or Certification.

Trying to learn on your own is like a kid trying to cut their own hair…it usually doesn’t go well! 



Here are some learning opportunities already in the books:

  1. January 31st3 hour Workshop at Xtreme Fitness in Hampton, NH 9-noon. (great 1st step to learning Kb’s).  Sign up or more info here: http://www.toddcambio.com/xtreme-russian-kettlebell-workshop/

So thank you for all the support!  I would love to see you at one of my courses!

Be Strong,

    I like to print off the workout each morning so I can take it along w me to work in case I get an opportunity during the day to get a workout in. I’m a massage therapist and sometimes have a couple hours in between clients. Anyway I’m not finding a good way to print off the workouts w out a bunch of other stuff and the warmup just wont print but 2 of the exercises. Do you have a printable version?

    Glad you are enjoying the workouts and warm ups. My advice is to simply take screen shots and save them so you can pull them up on your phone any time any where. I would be glad to help you out more, simply visit here for more info: http://www.toddcambio.com/spartan-sgx-training/

    That’s an inventive answer to an interesting question
