At Fairfield Strength, our goal is to make your training experience safe, effective, and efficient. We use the very best of what works to help you or your child reach their athletic performance goals. We focus on quality over quantity, taking the time to identify and correct individual movement challenges that can result in injury or put the brakes on performance. We believe that pain is not a good thing and that movement should be fun and training should be purposeful. Our coaches and trainers are constant learners, practicing what we teach. Our athletes are our teammates, and our team is family.  If you are looking for a small group training experience, or a private or semi-private session, please consider Fairfield Strength.

 

We use many different training modalities to help you reach your goals, with one or our primary tools being the kettlebell. Kettlebell training is for everyone - every body type, age, gender, ability and fitness level. You will be amazed at how this iron tool can change and challenge you!!

GEORGE GOMoLA

Kathleen was introduced to kettlebells by George in 2011 and was hooked. She moved to Seattle and went on to get her SGF certification. Being a constant learner, she studied and practiced many different training modalities to make her a well rounded instructor. She taught for four years at Kettlebility in Seattle, the first kettlebell studio in the Pacific Northwest, using Pavel Tsatsouline’s system to teach others safely and effectively.  She has worked with many different demographics, including youth athletes, women, and mature adults.  Being a great motivator for others, as well as having an eye for detail, and a great sense of humor are key components to her success as an instructor.

 

Kathleen has a BA in Economics and Finance from Texas A&M University and a Masters of Business Administration from The University of Texas at Dallas. Check out an article featuring Kathleen in The Seattle Times, "Want to be stronger than you ever thought possible? Pick up a kettlebell."
