Hi, I'm Jason C. Brown BS CSCS, the creator and owner of Kettlebell Athletics.
My own personal kettlebell journey started in the early 2000s under the guidance of physical culture icon Steven Maxwell.
I was a student at Steve's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school called Maxercise in Philadelphia PA when I noticed these odd looking stainless steel balls with a handle welded onto them.
They were beautiful and intimidating.
Maybe it's because of Rocky 4...but I've always been attracted to Russian and Eastern European sports science, so falling in love with the culture, tradition and folklore of the Russian kettlebell was easy and enjoyable for me.
Since that time, I have worked with thousands of clients, athletes and fitness professionals, working to refine and craft my kettlebell methods daily. I have been coach and consultant for world and national champions specializing in sports performance and preparation.
I have been helping trainers, coaches and athletes improve their kettlebell skills since 2003 and have created some pretty cool resources specializing in kettlebell training for fitness & sport. My online resources at Kettlebell Athletics have become the "Gold Standard" for all aspects of kettlebell conditioning and training.
My programs have been featured in Men's Health, Men's Fitness, Experience Life Magazine, Shape Magazine and CNN Fit Nation.
When I'm not working, I can be found spending time with my lovely wife and our 3 vibrant sons. Or...swinging some kettlebells or on the Jiu-Jitsu mat.
