Tim Almond


A former 13-year member of the Royal Australian Navy’s Elite Clearance Diving Teams, Tim has operational experience from both Afghanistan and the North Arabian gulf.

Tim Almond, SFG Senior Instructor, has been hosting and instructing StrongFirst courses and certifications across Australia and New Zealand since StrongFirst’s formation in 2012.

As a 3-time winner of StrongFirst’s Tactical Strength Challenge in the open division, Tim has successfully trained and mentored over a dozen top 3 place winners since 2015.

Favourite pastimes usually involve 2 kettlebells and a grimace, however Tim is also a passionate yogi bringing balance, some yin to the yang that kettlebell training creates. Tim enjoys rucking as sees it a tool for both conditioning (working out) and connecting to nature for a form of meditation in motion (working in).

Tim owns and operates a successful business in Perth Western Australia, Box 33, providing kettlebell instruction, strength and movement education and exercise therapy. Box 33 proudly calls itself home to StrongFirst in Australia.

Once you’ve seen Tim go about his business at Box 33, you can’t help not want to be part of the community.
I was drawn to StrongFirst after taking other kettlebell instructor courses that were absolutely shocking - certifying trainers that were clearly not technically proficient enough to coach the movements.
Which is why I take any opportunity to learn from Tim - his commitment and discipline towards his training and teaching are second to none, glad to have an instructor of that caliber on Western Australia to learn from.

I contacted Tim when preparing for my first StrongFirst certification and I am so glad that I did! Tim is extremely knowledgeable and has been a fantastic mentor on my StrongFirst journey. He also has a holistic approach which resonates with me because sometimes I need to be forced to consider that factors outside of my physical training might be affecting my progress. Tim does this with graciousness and a thoughtful approach. When I suffer a lapse in self confidence or my progress stalls, Tim knows how to coach me through it so that I can keep on improving. I was using kettlebells before I started working with Tim but my technique and performance has improved immensely under Tim's guidance. I would not be the athlete or the coach that I am today without the mentorship I have received from Tim. I look forward to continuing to work with Tim and am ever grateful to be a part of the StrongFirst Australia community.

As a proud foundation member of Tim's Box 33, I'd still be there if we hadn't retired 300 kms away! Tim has an exceptional knowledge of exercise physiology, coupled with an inimitable ability to communicate. You'll discover that your limits are much higher than you thought. Tim makes it fun, you will get stronger, move better, maybe lose some weight and you'll want to keep coming back for more.

Richard Scholes
I have been a Box33 member for almost 6 years now and have been fortunate enough to have had Tim Almond as a Personal Trainer and also attended a few StrongFirst certifications and workshops run by Tim. His attention to detail and his knowledge and passion leaves no stone unturned and this has allowed me/my body to perform at my own PB. I just love getting more out of life because of this. Very highly recommended.

John Negoescu
Tim is an extremely knowledgeable coach and is able to convey complex ideas in a simple, practical manner with a logical progression.
Tim has a holistic approach to coaching and is able to accommodate those who are in pain with little or no training experience and those with a long training history.
Tim is hands down one of the best kettlebell instructors in the country and I would highly recommend him for any training endeavour.

James Hughes
Tim introduced me to kettlebells and the change it has made for me both physically and mentally has been massive.
Coming from a background as an elite athlete I was pretty certain about my fitness and strength being elite but quickly found out in reality I was a novice.
I have learnt and continue to learn so much from training with Tim.
I would recommend Tim to anyone who wants to advance and better themselves.
