The SFG Curriculum consists of two levels—SFG I and SFG II—and is our flagship program, developed and refined by StrongFirst Founder and Chairman, Pavel Tsatsouline. We hold the highest standards in the industry, and the SFG is the most sought-after and respected kettlebell instructor credential in existence.

The old saying goes, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” Training is no different. If you lack a specific goal, the time you spend training may easily become a collection of random acts.
The StrongFirst Tactical Strength Challenge is a goal worthy of your efforts.
StrongFirst RESILIENT gets us out of our regular groove, going beyond conventional “correct” technique to expand our comfort and buffer zones. We explore the edges of our abilities safely, step-by-step, with a clear aim and purpose. Get ready to gain from orderly disorder.
Instructor: Pavel Macek, Master StrongFirst Instructor
SFL Candidates learn how to apply the principle-based StrongFirst methods to barbell training. You will focus on three timeless lifts, as well as the essential accessory movements.

Our one day workshops are designed to introduce you to Natural Movement, and give you the most important basics that you can practice in your daily life.

This advanced two-day Certification reinforces the principles and skills learned at the SFG I, then expands on them.
At the SFG II, each candidate must recertify their SFG I skills—and then meet an even higher standard of strength, movement skill, and coaching. Like our SFG I Certification, the SFG II is taught by the most qualified kettlebell instructors on the planet, hand-selected by either Pavel or Chief SFG Brett Jones.
