About Tucson Kettlebell

Strong First Certified in Tucson Arizona

There are numerous philosophies of training out in the world and we don’t think we know it all but we can say that we specialize in Hardstyle Kettlebell Training that has been developed by Pavel Tsatsouline.  Pavel Tsatsouline has left the RKC and started his own organization called StrongFirst. At Tucson Kettlbell we will be following Pavel with the direction of StrongFirst. Danny Sawaya the owner of Tucson Kettlebell was promoted by Pavel to StrongFirst Team Leader, the only one in Tucson. We specialize in training individuals for both the RKC and Strong First Certifications. We have successfully helped numerous trainers successfully pass the rigorous standards of the these certifications. We also offer numerous programs in strength and fitness with not only kettlebells. We also utilize barbells and other tools in our programs.
