ABOUT ME

Whether you're a seasoned kettlebell expert or a total novice I created the Kettlebell Nation community to bring together all those with a passion for kettlebells. I have over 25 years training experience and first became a qualified instructor in 1989 with NABBA (National Amateur Bodybuilding Association) I was a keen runner before becoming involved in competitive bodybuilding. I love to be competitive and enjoy challenging myself with new training methods.

I have a passion for training and helping others achieve their goals. My current philosophy has moved towards more functional based training methods. I am constantly trying to improve my skill set and undertake regular training to maintain the highest standards in my profession. I hope you'll find lots of useful information, advice and inspiration on these pages.

"Kettlebell Nation was formed out of a passion. As soon as I first picked up a kettlebell, I was intrigued as to what this small chunk of steel could do for me. I never for one moment believed it would lead to competing at an international level as a Team England member!"

Del Wilson - Founder Kettlebell Nation
