REVIEWS FOR KAREN SMITH


Augusto Juarez
I've had the privilege of attending one of Karen's certifications and assisting in two, and I continue to learn more from her every single time. Her mastery of strength principles and coaching is top-notch, making her capable of working with students of all levels, from the very early beginners to the most advanced athletes. She also genuinely cares, never passes judgement on anyone, and is very down-to-earth; making training with a coach of her caliber a very enjoyable experience rather than an intimidating one.

The knowledge and support I have received from Karen has been exceptional. With her expertise I have grown in my understanding of how my body responds to strength training and body weight stabilization. She is a amazing teacher but keeps her mind as a student always learning to help others. I would highly recommend Karen.

Hey Karen,

What a great seminar this weekend. You were really impressive at conveying and breaking down the essential parts to building a strong strength foundation. When Phil Scarito told us to attend this seminar, I knew it would be beneficial. What I never expected was to walk out of a one day seminar with endless new tools and thought patterns. As a well rounded coach and Massage Therapist, I knew a lot of the stuff you showed but now feel as if I am learning it for the first time.

You really knocked it outta the park and I am greatly appreciative for the efforts you go to convey the SF Message. The plan this September is to complete the SFG Kettlebell I in PA and ultimately finishing the SFB Cert as soon as possible. Once again, way to go. You guys are rockstars at StrongFirst!

Cheers,

Highly recommend Karen for your Kettlebell training from beginners to experts. She has a eye for form and can fine tune your kettlebell training. She is the go to expert for kettlebells and also has a wide range of training and experience in other modes of training as well.
