    Geoff, Thank you for your daily e-mail posts. I really have learned a lot since I recently have signed up for them.

    What I particularly like is you don’t oversell kettlebells and make it seem like a cure all for all the worlds problems. I also like that you are not embarrassed to share your faith. That takes some real courage….

    Anyway, I’m 48 years young and for the last few years I’ve been pretty diligent about getting healthy and in shape, I’ve lost about 25 pounds and gained some real strength ( I’m trying to keep up with my kids who are high school athletes and it’s not easy).

    I’ve mainly been using body weight exercises like pull ups { I’ve worked up to 11}, one armed push up progressions , single legged squat progressions , some barbell work and other things.

    But what I haven’t been using is the pair of 45 lb kbells that I’ve had for over a year. I think a program like yours could teach me to use double bells in a smart progressive way. I also feel like I would actually use the program that you put together.

    I know a lot of times people buy programs and get excited about it for a few weeks and forget about it when the newness wares off. but I like finish what I start.

    Anyway I appreciate what you do, keep up the hard work and God bless.

    I must to have a copy because I’m brazilian and in my continental country there are only 5 kettlebell instructors and either they are not teaching, or are out of reach, so I’ve been using the kettlebells by myself. In the last two years they have been more then muscle builders and fat burners, they have been a path of self knowing, self discovering, a true way of living, pushing my fisical and mental boundaries. Any slice of information here is gold. So, a book that guides me to master the techniques is a great help in this lone journey of self improvement. By now I’m able to perform all those lifts with my double 24kgs, but I’m not able to perform this lifts with my double 32kgs. So, I must have your book as a chance to grow as a lifter and as person and set a new standard in my life.



    • Daniel Dec 14, 2012 @ 6:19

      Rodrigo, I’m an RKC and SFG instructor from Rio de Janeiro. If you ever need help, shoot me an email, alright?

      All the best.

  • Matt Dec 13, 2012 @ 16:41

    Don’t pick me. I want to buy these because I know they’ll be worth it!

    My goal is to get stronger for my Wife, my Kids and my Job. KBS will help me get there because everything else you’ve created has helped.

    Thanks for your commitment, time and outstanding content.

  • Michael Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:08

    Hi Geoff, I’ve used some of your programs in Kettlebell Ultra & Express to great benefit. I’m 56 and an avid softball player and really enjoy outperforming players 20 and 30 yrs. younger than myself, and each year continue to get better while other guys in my age range and younger decline. I continue to get stronger mainly because of kbells and am sure this new program will propel me even further. Chicks dig the long ball!

  • Christopher Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:16

    Glad to see you putting out more quality informtion. I have used the kettlebell burn extreme program and went from 204 to 195lb now i was just following the doubel kettlebell workouts. The eating portion was a little stuff. I now am focusing on getting beast and achieving my own beast tamer challenge. I am going to doubel military press the beast also do a getup, snatches, swings and more. Use double kettlebell drills have helped me use the body as a single cohesive unit with all my muscles lighting up when they need to. When we lift most object we dont lift with one side of the body we use the entire body. Also to learn this drills and proper form will help me develope more strength in the real world but it will also help me when training my clients with 2 bells and showing them this is a great way to develope strength and get a sense of your body and muscles.

  • AC Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:24

    Hi Geoff,
    i would love to have one of the free copies! i was in great shape when i was just out of high school and in the military. I am 48 years old and i had alot of quality muscle, and despite not lifting consistently for 20 years i have somehow maintained a good portion of it. its not very dense or toned anymore and i have about 80 lbs of fat to lose. after a couple of knee surgeries, i need some help! i know double kb training can be both brutal and beneficial. i think its just what i need to get myself back on track and to wake up some of this dormant muscle before i lose it all. oh, and my wife is HOT! i need to get back on track before she realizes how bad i really look. thanks.

  • Steve H Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:28

    Geoff thanks for the opportunity to win your newest DVD. I am a 46 year old patrol Sergeant who has let himself become too accustomed to planting my rear end at a desk instead of being a strong well conditioned leader that sets an example for his subordinates to follow. I feel that your new video will start me down the road to more strength, less weight, better overall health and most importantly, show that even a 46 year father can still be in some of the best shape of his life and a leader worth following. Kettlebell Strength for life….more than just a slogan, a way of life!

  • Steve Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:38

    Strength is the key to training that I explain to all of my clients. With strength everything else comes much more efficiently and safely. I use the double bells as my primary tool once good technique is developed with single bells!
    I want to be able to pass on the best teaching to my athletes, clients, friends and family. I want to provide the best coaching and information to everyone that asks. I don’t believe any other double Kettlebell progr will deliver that outside of seeing you. So as I live in Australia that is a challenge. This will be a fantastic program, fingers crossed!

  • Ruben Romo Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:42

    Hi Geoff, I think it has finally sunk in, heavier bells make you stronger and lean. I enjoyed your kettlebell burn and lost most of my weight from your permanent weight loss solution approx. 30 lbs plus. Now I am at the point of those last 10-15 lbs. This is the fat that’s been there since I was 11 yrs. old, i’m almost 49 now. That’s some old fat, lol. all your info I read i pass onto whoever will listen. Kettlebells are what Bruce lee is to Jeet kune do. Anyways just want to thank you for being out there for me to soak up.

    Thanks Ruben,

  • Danny Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:52

    Hi Geoff, I would to get my hands on those dvd’s for the fact that I ordered the kettlebell express and would to see the proper way to do all the kettlebell exercises you provide. And also my 16 month baby boy would like me to be a really fit and strong DAD! Thank you for all your emails and incite to the world of kettlebells. Thank you for your time. Danny

  • greg Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:52

    it is not just “strength” but “strength of movement” that is important and kettlebells provide both. being a martial artist it is doubly important, especially at 55 years old.

  • Rod Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:53

    I am 50 years old, 5’8″ tall, and weigh 150lbs. I recently became a police officer and the people I come in contact with while on the job are generally younger,bigger, and stronger. I have been using KB’s for a couple of years now and have found that of all the so called experts out there your advise is the most sound and helpful. I am looking forward to using these DVDs to increase my strength and put on some muscle and in doing so I know this can make a big difference in any life or death situations I face while preforming my duties.
    Thanks for all you do!

  • Roxanne Dec 13, 2012 @ 17:56

    started with the 10 x10, got into Kettle Express and I’m making my way back to 30 from 57 help me get there by developing more strength.
    Make me Strong!

  • NC Dec 13, 2012 @ 18:07

    I want to impress my KB Instructor Dr. Cheng! I want to be able to weighted pull ups in class, I want to push the 24K over my head and possibly snatch the 2oK.

    But mostly I want to pass the RKC test


  • h Dec 13, 2012 @ 18:22

    Tell me what your specific goals are and why you think Kettlebell STRONG! will help you achieve them.?

    the answer:
    To live a life with a healthy body- movements- improvement using the most practical tool Kettlebell.


  • Pat Dec 13, 2012 @ 18:24

    Why I need a copy? I serve in a dynamic US military unit that is subject to frequent deployment both overseas and domestic locations. I need this DVD copy to train myself so I can better lead my soldiers and have the physical strength to chase down any challenge that is thrown my way! And the added bonus of teaching my fellow Soldiers to get better at the Skill of Strength. I follow Geoff’s advice and plan to get my unit doing this sort of a program. We have access to kb’s but not the expert coaching advice that they should come with…!

  • Tom Dec 13, 2012 @ 18:50

    Hey Geoff,
    I am a soldier training for SF selection. Between the pack marches, runs, swims, pushups, pullups. I need something to increase my strength without taking up time that I need for recovery. Double kettlebells are the perfect answer to get the best bang for my buck. Double swings, front squat, snatches and of course the dreaded LCCJ are exactly what the doctor ordered. If in the next 6 months I can achieve 15 reps at BW front squat, a BW press, a BW kb snatch and 20 reps of LCCJ, I think I’ll be strong enough to endure what will be thrown at me. While I am close to these goals, some expert guidance will help me achieve them.


  • Michael Scott Dec 13, 2012 @ 19:05

    Hi Geoff . I would like Kettlebell STRONG! because:
    I want to be sure I am physically strong enough to handle all that life might throw at me, because I can only hope I am mentally strong enough to do the same.

  • Joseph Brown Dec 13, 2012 @ 19:33

    I’m getting old! I’m in my middle-aged years and the stronger I can get right now, the more strength I’ll be able to maintain as time…as the James Brown song says…’takes me on!’

  • Brian Lederman Dec 13, 2012 @ 19:50

    Dear Sir
    I had obtained a copy of kettlebell burn several years ago and got excellant results from it. You may remember me, Im the trainer from Fl with Kidney failure. I had been training religiously and adhering to a very limited diet and despite everyhing I was making great gains. I had been going for kidney treatments and dealing with a lot of the side effects of the health issue. I had no idea the effect it had on my wife. She couldn’t take it and was having an affair. We are now separated and I moved to the other coast of Fl with nothing but my clothes and a few sets of kettlebells. I became depressed and lonely and my health and training suffered. I became very weak. I am starting to come out of it and hearing about your new project inspired me to get strong again. I know with your help (the video) I will be able to focus on something positive and feel strong and good about myself again. I thank you for all your great teaching Sir, and wish you the best.

    Brian Lederman

  • Romey Ross Dec 13, 2012 @ 19:58

    I want to overcome nagging shoulder pain AND get strong enough to practice with my recurves and longbows at least 30 minutes per day without pain. I am 62 and want to continue to hunt the backcountry solo and with energy to burn until I finally keel over.

  • Allen black Dec 13, 2012 @ 20:30

    Hey Geoff ,
    All my life I have been told that I wasn’t capable of doing surtain things. So I had listen and backed off. I was involved in an accident that was going to leave me paralyzed or dead. I was training for my first big triathlon and I was hit on the bicycle. The doctors told me that if I survived the surgery that I would not be able to walk. Well I was not going to give up this time. I now am the proud owner of 4 plates 12 screws 19 fusions, titanium mesh going from c3 to c7 ,also no tendons or ligaments in the neck. I showed them wrong! I started using kbs about 4 years ago and started following you about 3 1/2 years now. I have lost 137lbs in the last 5 years. I’m in a plateau now and I’m ready to move on to be the best that I have always should of been. So I want your knowledge to put me there! I want the next level! Pick me!

  • Thomas LaMonica Dec 13, 2012 @ 21:19

    Hello Geoff,
    I am just recovering from rotator cuff surgery [reattached 2 tendons, and released the bicep something tendon {it was beyond repair}] and would love to use this to regain my strength

  • Joel Dec 13, 2012 @ 21:23

    Hi Geoff,

    My “big picture” goal is to make sure I stay healthy as I creep towards middle age and beyond. To do this, I believe it is critical to keep getting stronger and leaner ā€“ and to add a bit of muscle along the way. I know it sounds straightforward, but my life leaves me little time for kettlebell practice: I am an office worker in a high-stress job, and I have a twenty-month old son and another child on the way. I need to be ruthlessly efficient with my workouts.

    Your book would help me achieve these goals by teaching me how to do and and how to program double kettlebell exercises. I believe double kettlebell training is perhaps the most effective ways for me to achieve my goals while having fun ā€“ I love the subtlety and dynamism of kettlebells. But most importantly, double kettlebell training is so efficient that it will allow me to get stronger, leaner, and more muscular without interfering with the time I need to both play hide-and-seek with my toddler and to help my wife care for our soon-to-come baby.

    Thanks for your blog and your books. They have already helped me get stronger and fitter.


  • Tristan Phillips Dec 13, 2012 @ 22:37

    I’m a fat kid in disguise. Grew up fat then beat it through kung fu and then kettlebells. I am certainly still influenced by the fat kid inside of me though. I’ve been an RKC since 2010 and have gone to loads of workshops and certs. Just recently I had an epiphony about why I have never been satisfied with my results (physique wise). I’ve always strived for the metabolic burn. I’ve been to countless workshops and heard countless smarter-then-me people talk about focusing on strength and the fat loss comes, but until recently I thought they meant someone else. I don’t know why I didn’t realize that I was one of those people. Up until a few months ago the heaviest bell I had was a 28 kg, and I only had one of them. I just picked up all of the sizes that I didn’t have from an RKC buddy that had to get rid of them. So finally I had bells to challenge me, and holy crap did they ever! Doing TGU’s with the 36 kg has really taught me a lot about where I could improve my TGU. And the body composition changes have been pleasant as well. So anyway, I’d love a copy for free, but I’ll buy it anyway if I don’t get it. I finally have heavy doubles and I’m loving it. Plus I plan on going for my SFG II this year. See you soon I’m sure. Happy Holidays.

  • Calvin Poole Dec 13, 2012 @ 22:45

    I personally do not care to win a free copy either as someone else earlier mentioned. I just want to make sure that I can buy a copy!
    I am 57 years old, started Kettlebells several years ago and have mainly followed Geoff’s teaching and recommendations.
    Results: I am in good shape. Have lost 50 lbs in weight, probably more in fat. Went from a 46 waist to a 38. One female friend who is 15 years younger said that I was in better shape than 95% of the 30 year olds at her gym. (Not sure if she meant that I was in good shape or that most of her gym members are in terrible shape, LOL, but I prefer the former)
    I am stronger than I have been since I was in my thirties. My aerobic capacity is excellent also. Recent calcium index studies of my coronary arteries are COMPLETELY clean.
    If Geoff writes anything on Kettlebell training, I will be buying.
    I would recomend you do the same.

  • MARK WINTERS Dec 13, 2012 @ 23:22

    Mr Neupert:


    As I age (50 +), I want to see what is possible, in returning to my desired baseline of age: 29 (where I feel I peaked in power and strength). In order to do this, I need every edge immaginable. I use kettlebells, and CHASING STRENGTH, as part of this endeavour. In trying to build / improve, both TYPE-I & TYPE-II-muscle fibers, I’m sure KETTLEBELL STRONG will be essential in refining my form and technique, enabling me to generate more force. Anyone doubting this should watch some of the early Neupert / Whitley stuff, as some of the original Pavel guys demonstrate some amazing power / strength.

    Thank you for your continued efforts over the years to bring the POWER TO THE PEOPLE.

    With utmost admiration,

  • Tom Bowness Dec 13, 2012 @ 23:26

    I will purchase a copy, haven’t been let down by your programs yet.

  • Jarrett Shepherd Dec 13, 2012 @ 23:43

    I want Kettlebell Strong because I want to become to the first SFG certified instructor in the state of Alabama. In addition to that, I want to look just like you do on cover and be nasty, crazy strong.

  • Trina Dec 14, 2012 @ 1:03

    I will be buying my copy as well, if there are any left! I know this is excellent stuff (as always!), and that if I focus on strength first, then the physique and health benefits will follow. I definitely want to master the KB lifts with very heavy (for me) bells. My goal is to press my 2 20kgā€™s- right now they are sitting there laughing at me.

  • Mike Lindner Dec 14, 2012 @ 2:10

    I need a copy of Kettlebell Strong because my brother and I are planning on being the first brothers from Missouri to achieve Master Ranks through the Strong First program. We are currently doing Kettlebell Muscle together and this is something that we want to pass along to our families friend and communities to show people how strong” brotherly love can be

  • SK Dec 14, 2012 @ 2:42

    I just turned 40 last month and have recently learned about Kettlebell training. I’m 5’10”, 135 pounds and everyone tells me I need to eat more.

    I want to add muscle and bulk up so I can develop the body of a man, not be slight of build like a woman.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a program that could aid in realizing this goal.

  • Marcsa Dec 14, 2012 @ 6:05

    I need to renew my Strongfirst Level 1 diploma next April. Thing is, I don’t want to pass the test. I want to crush it. Winning/buying something with both “kettlebell” and “strong” in the title, I’ll have all I need.

  • Steve Dec 14, 2012 @ 6:12

    At 52 years young I have gotten stronger over the past 5 years with the Kettlebell at my side.
    I need to press the 40 kg and I need to deadlift 360 lbs.
    I need to get even stronger!
    With TWO Kettlebells and your program, I will achieve these goals before my 53rd birthday anniversary.
    Thanks for listening,

  • Daniel Dec 14, 2012 @ 6:33

    Hey Geoff,

    Right now, I’m a beginner powerlifter in Brazil, trying to reach for my potential and beyond, while still interested in keeping the skills of Hardstyle Kettlebell within range. I’m still finishing my Master in Coastal Engineering and will be following that by a Doctorate. Married life has just started, so in 5 years, around my 30th birthday, I must be physically and financially ready for a kid.

    I was at you Becoming Bulletproof seminar in Chicago, last November, BTW.

    Therefore, my goals are to:
    1. Make the best of the time I have between studying, researching, training, teaching martial arts, self-defense and kettlebells and (last but not least) keep the marriage up and onward;
    2. Make the best of the space and tools I have at home, while keeping gym time for powerlifting as short as possible (following Pavel and Marty Gallagher’s blueprints);
    3. Get as much power as possible before gaining mass and going up on weight classes.

    Can you imagine having a champion powerlifter whose only (only?!?!?!) assistance exercises were your Double KB drills? Imagine no further, I’m your guy! Pick me, pick me!

    I’ll scrape the piggy bank if I have too, though, it’s just tough because of the taxes the local customs charge for any DVD imported… I guess, in a way, that is one kid I already support and that doesn’t appreciatte it!

    All the best!

  • Gary Dec 14, 2012 @ 7:28

    All i want to do is to put on size and strength with what i know will work rather than messing about with some other system that will have you with a bad back or worse.

  • bree both Dec 14, 2012 @ 7:32

    Since I do not know where to go for good quality kettlebell instructors in my country(small place in europe) I think your dvd’s of KETTLEBELL STRONG will give me at least some good pointers…;)
    I’m a female in my forty’s on a lifelong quest to be my best physically,emotionally, spiritually and socially. I want to do this (kettlebell Training) the right way. Reading your blogs and emails something tells me that following you is not a bad idea…;))
    Initially I was going to tell ya that I need and want to lose weight as almost every freakin’ woman outthere..but than I remember that I also really want to get strong. And I know that just focussing on strong everything else will fall in place… Thank you 4 this nice opportunity to really get to zone in on the Strong side of it all..

  • Hunter Dec 14, 2012 @ 7:52

    Kettlebell Strong will be a great addition to an arsenal of Pavel’s books that are making me a better and stronger man for my family, friends, and myself.

  • Victor Ughy Dec 14, 2012 @ 7:56

    Dear Geoff, I live in Argentina. I teach and train martial arts including Hapkido, Taekwondo and Krav Maga. Strength is crucial for me because I am only 170 cm tall and my weight is 65 kg. Daily I teach and fight guys far more taller and heavier than me. Strength is a must!!! By other hand, there is no RKC or SFG instuctors in Argentina and I would like to introduce the system here. Thanks!

  • Tina Dec 14, 2012 @ 8:33

    I am a 42yr old woman who was bitten by the kb bug 4 years ago and am now in the best shape of my life. I have witnessed what being stronger has done for me…body composition, everything moving easier, being able to do heavy lifting in my job, etc. Yesterday I went for groceries, and loved not needing help to load four 40lb bags of softener salt into my car! LOL!

    I don’t want to stay in in the best shape of my life…I want to get BETTER! I have only dabbled in doubles work with piecemeal instruction here and there on the ‘net but just from that can see how it would be so much more efficient and powerful! KB’s are the tool for me…I have no commercial gym access and actually sold my standard weights to afford getting heavier bells (44lb and 53lb) and get doubles of my 35lbers to add to my double 26’s. I love their rhythm, efficiency, and how they save me time in my busy life (KB Express at stressful times has been a lifesaver!) I know from doing your programs that you write some of the best stuff out there (KB Burn was brutal in a good way!) and I am sure that this would be no exception…it is not easy finding good in real life Kb instruction here in my part of Canada, and I would literally just CRY (!) if I had to resort to buying a copy of this dvd series and they all sold out before that LOL! I am so looking forward to your instructions of technique especially.

    My real goals…not something vague like “lose my last 5lb” which I do need/want to do incedentally, but to do more concrete things (and I know compostition would take care of itself)…I want to be a 42yr old BADASS who laughs in the face of aging and middle age spread, who can do 10 pullups instead of my current 1, do a weighted pistol on each leg instead of my current wobbly unweighted one, and also press my 44lb kb once each arm…heck, with this program and the STRENGTH it will infuse me with, I may even do the 53lber one day, LOL! The sky’s the limit!

    Looking so forward Geoff to getting my hands on this one, free copy or otherwise!

  • Chris Dec 14, 2012 @ 8:34

    I need to be the best father possible for my kids.

    I’ve purchased many of your programs Geoff, but I KNOW that my form is still terrible and probably downright dangerous. I want to get stronger but haven’t been able to break past using certain KBs because of this.

    If there were RKCs or SF teachers where I live, I would go to them, but there aren’t. I need to learn from someone in the know, not some pretty boy in some inane gym who doesn’t have a clue.

    Think of the kids, Geoff. The kids.

  • David Dec 14, 2012 @ 8:36

    I want to win in all areas of life, including (but not limited to) the physical. Want to prove to myself that the only thing that can stop me is me…and I’m not gonna do that anymore. Bring it.

  • Concetta Dec 14, 2012 @ 9:47

    Look at the picture on the cover. Who wouldn’t want to look like that??
    I believe your program could get me to “training” instead of “working out”. I have not made any strength gains in years. I want to do more than 3 chin ups and finally a pull up. Let’s go!!!

  • Tebe Dec 14, 2012 @ 11:36

    It’s simple šŸ™‚ I want to be STRONG, and double kettlebells are the way to go! šŸ™‚

  • Graeme McLeish Dec 14, 2012 @ 11:52

    My specific kettlebell goals:
    1. Put some meat on the bone
    2. Put some more meat on the bone
    3. Stop looking so damn scrawny.


  • Tracey Dec 14, 2012 @ 12:10

    I have a passion to teach & train women & encourage them to be all that they can be & they can overcome any obstacle in life including their health & fitness goals. I currently have my own health issue & I am working thru them everyday & getting the best training, knowledge & education utilizing kb’s is just another way to show women they can reach their goals without having to go to a gym where most women feel like the are on show for the next catch. I want to show women that anything is possible with the right exercises & training.

  • Cary Dec 14, 2012 @ 13:21

    Hey Jeff,
    I love kettlebells like everyone else. I am 47 and I pride myself on being fit and improving my fitness level. I have some personal goals of pressing the 48kg overhead and doing the pullups with it as well, and doing a 400lb+ deadlift. I have some great personal and professional testimonies from kettlebell lifting, and I would like to build on those.

  • Kirsten Tucker Dec 14, 2012 @ 14:02

    I’m an AF veteran, mom of three, military spouse, and pre-med student in my early 30’s. I want to lose the baby fat, be strong, and have energy to tackle anything that springs up. I have been working with KBs for a year now. I have seen amazing results with just a single bell use and a great diet. I love the muscles and how they have changed my shape even with several more lbs to go. I recently completed a Warrior Dash and hit all the obstacles with no problems and only 1.5 hrs of training a week. I want the energy, strength, endurance, and stamina of being truly fit. I have a great deal of work ahead of me academically, three small children to chase (all 7 and under) and I need a phenomenal intense program that focuses on building all the aspects I mentioned as well as minimizing injuries and being extremely efficient on time. I have seen what single bell practice can do, a double bell program will get me to my goals and I believe achieve beyond expectations.

  • Brian Dec 14, 2012 @ 15:27

    Because I want to be strong enough to go done the local lycra gym and use the machines, which are really hard.

  • Mike Dec 14, 2012 @ 15:46

    Because just like you, I recently became a dad too (at the ripe old age of 38)! My 39th birthday is fast approaching and having spent the last year not sleeping well or having the time to get in consistent quality training, has left me out of shape and unable to keep up with my 1-yr old son. I know that with your guidance and a pair of KB’s, I’ll be the best father I can possibly be for my boy (and my wife, too!!).
