"Strength is a skill."
- Pavel Tsatsouline
Heavy Metal Girya is the first and only kettlebell specific training facility in Birmingham, AL. Our primary focus is 'hardstyle' kettlebell training using StrongFirst techniques and principles. If there is one tool that does it all, the kettlebell wins, hands down. You can burn stubborn body fat, build lean muscle, and develop incredible strength and power. Kettlebell training can be for anyone, no matter one's age, size, or experience in the iron game. From those suffering a sedentary lifestyle to elite athletes, kettlebell training delivers all around fitness. This isn't a regular big box gym. There isn't a lot of shiny equipment or fancy bells and whistles, just loud music and large pieces of heavy metal that we repeatedly pick up, then put down. We don't believe in what Master SFG Mark Riefkind calls “random acts of variety.” We train and practice a core set of lifts and techniques and drill them to perfection. We train movements, not body parts, each workout engaging your entire body. Kettlebell training is simple, but not easy. Proper instruction is crucial for maximum safety and performance. You will be challenged physically and mentally, and have fun doing it. If you are ready to begin your journey of strength or take your training to the next level, stop by and give it a swing.
