Kevin ClearyKevin is from Portland, Oregon. He developed a strong passion for fitness and athletics in high school, and has been pursuing it ever since. A competitive swimmer and coach, he discovered the world of the kettlebell in 2009 after becoming disgruntled with ineffective dryland training routines, and he not only broke through his plateaus using Pavel Tsatsouline's methods, but attained great success, both in the sport of swimming and in overall strength and conditioning.
His swimming career has taken him to 15 United States Masters Swimming National Championship meets, held across the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as the 2017 World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand.
Since achieving SFG I in Seattle in 2016, he has gone on to earn StrongFirst's Bodyweight (SFB) and Barbell (SFL) certifications in 2018 (Portland) and 2019 (Johannesburg), respectively, and has assisted with many local StrongFirst user courses.
He applies these skills and knowledge to his positions as a Novice/Developmental/Senior coach for the Hillsboro HEAT swim team, Head Swim Coach at Hillsboro High School, and as a conditioning coach for the Hillsboro High School water polo program. He also teaches group and private swim lessons, and is a senior student at Instinct Defense Academy in Portland, where he has assisted teaching self-defense courses, and has made multiple trips to Japan to further enhance his skills and knowledge.
Having experienced what StrongFirst's training methods have to offer, he is eager to share these benefits with everyone from athletes to the everyday person looking to not only improve their health and fitness, but thrive!
