Wael Al-Sayegh: Strengthening A Nation

Wael Al-Sayegh embarked on a kettlebell strength training journey to improve his longevity as a martial arts student and instructor. Kettlebell training not only alleviated his long-standing knee, shoulder, and lower back issues from years of sparring but also brought him an unparalleled sense of tranquility.

This newfound strength has not only made him a better teacher, husband, father, and business owner but also ignited his passion to share these benefits with his community. Wael established Strong Nomads as a focal point for StrongFirst and Kult Fitness in his area, offering others the opportunity to experience the transformative power of strength training.

Atheer Aranki: Pioneering Strength Training for  Women

As the General Manager of a bustling industrial ice factory in Dubai, Atheer Aranki juggles daily challenges in production, finance, sales, and human resources. Finding time for fitness amid her professional, motherly, and wifely roles proved challenging, with gym memberships and personal trainers yielding no success.

However, her life took a transformative turn when she discovered kettlebell strength training at her son's martial arts school. Committed to becoming a coach, she pursued her StrongFirst certification, becoming the first Jordanian to attain it. This newfound strength empowers her to manage life's complexities. Atheer's passion lies in empowering Arab women through strength training, creating a supportive community like her experience with Strong Nomads.
