Kareem graduated from UBC’s Kinesiology program, and during his time he played both Varsity Football and Rugby. He is now a Strength and Conditioning Coach (NSCA), and a Certified Kettlebell instructor (StrongFirst). His guiding principles: Slow is Smooth, Smooth eventually becomes Fast. Strength is the master quality, it is the foundation upon which all other human characteristics are laid. Practice not until you get it right, but instead practice until you cannot get it wrong. Perfection is not when there’s nothing else to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
“My belief is that movement is at the foundation of everything we do. Whether it be at work, at home with the family, or while we’re getting our work in at the gym. I like to use kettlebells because of their simplicity, they are a wonderful tool for teaching and reinforcing safe and effective movement patterns. The burden of choice can be a hinderance while training, with a kettlebell the burden of choice is no longer an issue.”
