I decided to form Manchester Kettlebell Club in May 2012.

After spending most of 2011, studying, learning and understanding what was required in Kettlebell Sport to be successful it seemed the next logical step. I created the first team in the North West of England, whose sole purpose is training for Kettlebell Sport.

The team has grown from strength to strength each year, and we’ve had some amazing results. I’ve been fortunate enough to coach my athletes to numerous winning Championship performances. All in all since its formation, up-to now, November 2015, Manchester Kettlebell club has amassed a total of 57 medals. 41 x Gold Medals, 13 x Silver Medals, 3 Bronze Medals and 9 Absolute Champions. You can see our full results list on the clubs dedicated blog page. You can also find out much more information about the club on the page, including online coaching.

The ‘Team’ training sessions are generally every Friday at 1800-2000 (unless notified otherwise) at my base at Train Manchester. Please note though these training sessions are not your regular Kettlebell Conditioning Classes. All abilities and experiences are catered for, but we primarily train the lifts used in competition: Jerks, Snatches and Long Cycle. The aim is to train as a team and compete as a team. But don’t worry if you’re not competitive or have no interest in competing, these sessions will still get you fitter, stronger and leaner!

Come and try competitive Kettlebell Practice. We train hard and get results!!
