I attended the Foundations Workshop. As as a beginner who discovered SF during the pandemic, it was great to have expert instruction and feedback. I left with drills and techniques to incorporate into my training to keep me safe and strong!

I took the Strongfirst kettlebell 8 hour course with Kevin a few months back. Very professional in his approach and attention to detail, while being personable and creating a comfortable environment. Can’t wait for when the time comes for me to sign up for the body weight course.

I came to Kevin while preparing for the SFG I certification in October 2019. He quickly proved to be a dedicated and knowledgable coach who genuinely cared about helping me succeed. He was always available for advice on my training, and had me well prepared for the tough SFG weekend. When I struggled with the snatch test, he put a plan together which ultimately helped me pass and gain my certification. If I had it to do over again, the only thing I would change is seeking Kevin out earlier.

I took the StrongFirst Kettlebell Course led by Kevin and can firmly say that after almost 7 years in the fitness industry, this was the most amazing course I have taken. The technicality of KB’s can feel overwhelming but Kevin broke it down so well and made sure we all really got it. You feel supported from Kevin from the first moment you walk in the room and I am planning to take his class in Philly sometime soon!

Kevin lead a Kettle workshop that I was privileged to attend in the Chester County, PA area. He is one of the most knowledgeable and creditable trainers I have yet to learn from. He guided my colleagues and I through a training that was incredibly educational and exciting. If you are looking to grow in the fitness industry and or gain more knowledge on incorporating kettlebells into your training and or coaching, Kevin Dea is the guy!

I had the pleasure of attending a kettlebell workshop run by Kevin. He is a remarkable instructor! He is super personable and has great energy which helped make for a conducive learning environment for myself and my fellow coaching team. During our workshop Kevin was able to teach a variety of new movements and techniques in a relatively brief period of time, all while ensuring total comprehension and allowing open dialogue for questions and answers. I highly recommend Kevin as a Strong First instructor!

Chris Coyne
Kevin ran Kettlebell and Bodyweight courses I recently attended and did a fantastic job. As a result of his level of knowledge, experience, teaching ability, and positive attitude I learned more than I ever expected in 2 days. He is simply one of the best instructors I have ever worked with. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for fitness instruction!
