Add 10.lbs to Your Bench Press in 10 Minutes


The same technical subtleties taught in the Amazing 12 took my bench press 3 rep max to 9 reps and I’ve seen it turn one of my own client’s previous 1 rep max into a 5 rep max IN THE FIRST TRAINING SESSION!!!!!  I’ve seen this same process take a female’s 15 rep max to a 80+ rep max in 12 weeks.  NOW… Imagine the kind of physical transformation that becomes possible when you’re not only eating better, following a world-class program, and training with safer technique but handling more weight than you’re used to and making it feel easier than ever before and realize this is only one of many life-changing techniques you’ll learn in the Amazing 12.
Below you’ll find a sneak peak at just a few subtleties covered in your first day of the Amazing 12 program.

4-hours of Instruction: 400% Improvement


Amy dominating 24kg (52.8 lb ) kettlebell swings for sets of 10: 400% improvement in 4-classes.

How would you like to make 400% progress in as little as 4 lessons?
This may sound unbelievable to some, but this kind of result is typical for people from beginners to advanced in our classes. The recipe to getting this kind of result isn’t really a secret,  it’s just a matter of professional experienced instruction combined with a proven system. Our instructors have invested over 30 years of combined experience, tens-of-thousands of dollars in continuing education and hundreds of hours learning from the very best.

When it comes to exercise most people are self-taught through videos and books, but neither videos or book will give you feedback, the correct cues, drills or modifications at the time YOU need them.  As a result,  despite their best efforts and of no fault of their own most people acquire bad movement patterns and dangerous habits that eventually either stall progress, lead to injury or frustration.

When you enroll with Omaha Elite Kettlebell we don’t magically make you stronger, we just quickly show how you do things safer and better. As a result you’ll be able to accomplish more quality work in less time.

This was true for Amy (pictured above) who prior to enrolling in Omaha Elite Kettlebell’s self-paced mini-course was self-taught via exercise videos.

 I was doing 25lb swings and tried moving up to 30lbs and it caused back pain. I knew I needed instruction to increase the number of swings and weight.”

Amy signed up for our self-paced kettlebell mini-course and came in swinging a 26.4 pound kettlebell for 5 reps at a time.  By her fourth lesson she was swinging the 52.8 pound kettlebell for 10 reps per set with excellent form that is literally 4x the weight moved per set, with safer technique than before.  

“I’m so excited about how much progress I have made already. I have learned so MUCH!  I’m so thankful I found you! Thank you!”

The StrongFirst One-Day SFG Kettlebell Course -OMAHA, NE March 25th 2018


We believe that strength has a greater purpose, and the Kettlebell can be the tool to help you build that strength. But what is in your way? How can you move forward to accomplish your goals?

You may be a stay at home mom or dad, or a busy executive. You may be a first responder, a member of the military or a police officer. You may be pursuing the Simple and Sinister standards, or you are a busy trainer looking for a new tool for your fitness and to use with your students. Whomever you are, you have likely tried to “get fit” and been frustrated. Running and what you “used to do” just doesn’t seem to be cutting it. And now you have a cannonball with a handle staring up at you…

The StrongFirst Kettlebell Course is designed for you. We have identified the fundamentals of kettlebell training and built this Course around them. Students will be taught essential skills, techniques, and principles by a small group of SFG Instructors handpicked for their ability to teach. Students will come away from the Course being able to safely and effectively train with a kettlebell on their own—the StrongFirst way.

The StrongFirst Kettlebell Course is ideal for newcomers to the kettlebell and also those who have been training but want to refine and perfect their technique. In other words, this Course provides a valuable education for people of all levels who want to optimize their training.

At the Kettlebell Course, you will learn the:

  • Squat—for a mobile and strong lower body.

  • Swing (beginning with the Deadlift)—for power and conditioning.

  • Turkish Get-up—for whole-body strength and skill.

  • Military Press—for strong and stable shoulders.

Why so few drills?

  • Focus. We teach only 4 fundamental skills in this 8-hour period. This allows us to ensure that all students leave with the ability to perform these movements and skills on their own, safely and effectively.

  • Principles. Students will learn our movement fundamentals, state of the art breathing techniques, and tension skills for instant strength gains. This focus on principles and fundamentals allows us to narrow the course to the essentials needed to accomplish your goals

What will you gain?

  • Independence. The kettlebell is a great tool to train with on your own. But to do so, you must learn how to use it safely, efficiently, and effectively.

  • Strength. Students will make immediate strength and performance gains once they learn the fundamentals and the principle-based system that supports them.

  • Education. The single-day Kettlebell Course is not an Instructor Certification. It is designed for all people who want to use the kettlebell to get stronger and more conditioned. Once you are taught the movements and the principles, we will also discuss programming. All students will also receive an in-depth Course manual, and the Course provides .8 CEU credits through NASM (others upon petition).

Kettlebell instruction is our passion and ongoing obsession. Our persistent dedication to every detail, combined with our unmatched pedigree and commitment to the highest standards has solidified StrongFirst’s position as the subject matter expert on kettlebell training. Modern kettlebell training originated with us and our founder, Pavel Tsatsouline, and you will not find more thorough or in-depth instruction on using kettlebells safely and effectively within a single day.

We look forward to working with you and helping you learn how to use your kettlebell the right way. “Strength starts with the kettlebell, and the kettlebell starts with StrongFirst.”

Our next User Course is scheduled for March 25th, 2018 at Compete Personal Fitness in Omaha, NE. Space will be limited to 10 participants.
