Training for Coaches & Gyms


Renah Jones, Owner and the only StrongFirst Level 2 Certified Kettlebell Coach in St. Louis, offers kettlebell coaching for other coaches and gyms.

Individual sessions are available if you are training for your SFG Level 1 or 2. Renah has gone through each certification, as well as the recertification process and can help you nail down your form to ensure an awesome weekend with a pass! Sessions for those seeking their SFG certification are designed to each individual’s specific needs.

Renah also offers individual sessions to trainers and coaches that do not have a kettlebell certification, but would like to learn the best ways to cue and coach their own clients. Not only will you learn skills that will help build your credibility and confidence among clients, but you’ll be able to apply all of these to your own training as well. If you’re going to talk the talk, you’ve got to walk the walk! Renah will come to your gym if you would like to host a private kettlebell workshop for your staff.

Here are a few things you can expect from a private kettlebell session or workshop (depending on your needs):

  • You’ll learn how to perform and coach a client to a great kettlebell swing. A great kettlebell swing starts with a great deadlift so we’ll go back to basics and make sure that you are doing those little things that can make a big difference. From there, you’ll learn how to detect and correct common mistakes with the swing, and how to perform swings without back pain. This is a fantastic conditioning movement that is often performed incorrectly and with poor form. Not anymore!

  • Whether you or your clients are looking to press heavy or just press without pain, you’ll learn how to improve the strength of the military press with tension. There are the basics and then there are specific cues that can help at the just the right times. Pressing…so much more than a shoulder movement!

  • You’ll learn how to break the get-up down into bite-sized steps for you or your clients and all the details to make this movement stronger. Some people have a love/hate relationship with the get-up, but now you can love it and show others why they should love it too!

  • You’ll learn how to help your clients or yourself to a stronger squat, and eliminate any back or knee pain. You’ll be able to spot very common mistakes in the squat and learn drills to help practice and drive it home. No more butt wink!

  • Renah can also show you how to program these movements into training. Give your clients a great coaching experience and help them get stronger in a safer and more effective way, or learn how to write your own kettlebell programming!

  • Other, more advanced, movements that Renah can work with you on include the clean, snatch, push press and jerk, bent press, and windmill.

I have completed four weeks of kettlebell training with Renah and I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience. Although I have worked in the fitness industry for many years, I was blown away by all the techniques I learned, that I had not known before. Renah’s in person instructions and individualized critiques made it fun and easy to learn. It is very difficult to find a StrongFirst level 2 instructor in this area and because of this I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Renah.”

Renah is a remarkable instructor. As someone who is pursuing a Level 1 Strong First certification, she really helped me pinpoint my weaknesses and what I can do to improve them. I would highly recommend!
