Working with Steve is always a fun and educational experience. I've been working with him for about 2 years and he has been immeasurably helpful in getting me to my strength goals. Not only is serious about fitness but he makes it fun and he's fun to be around.
I have worked with Coach Fury as one of my regular coaches for nearly a year. He brings tons of technical knowledge to help us always maintain great technique and learn new ways to make ourselves a little better each day. He also brings a unique sense of humor that makes working out fun-even when it's a tough set, and is deeply both humble and joyful in the role he plays in our lives (and the role we play in his). He also doesn't f-around. When you're mildly injured or having ouchies (not the good kind) he always encourages (and guides) you to find a workaround to push through, safely, and get it done. I find my strongest self working with Fury. He rocks.
I've had the joy of working with Coach Fury for 3 1/2 years now, and he is one in a BILLION. His coaching is always concise, user friendly, and he makes even the most difficult tasks seem accessible. FURY FOREVER!!
I have to admit I was skeptical (in other words scared) before my first training session with this intimidating guy. Who wouldn't be? Doesn't look like he would be warm and fuzzy. My first Ninja Essentials class he spent several minutes making sure we understood the importance of listening to our bodies and not pushing ourselves to a point that would result in injury. That resonated with me and surprised me. My private session with him was even more astonishing. He watched my deadlifts and goblet squats and encouraged me in such a positive way that I am now confidentially lifting almost double the weight. His belief in me has translated into me believing and LIFTING more than I thought I could in such a short time. He may look tough but I think there is such a tender core that augments his effectiveness.
Coach Fury is an incredible fitness coach, trainer, motivator and all around great guy! He's in it with you 110% whenever you train with him. He brings his authentic self to every interaction, offering great training tips and guidance, all with a great sense of humor. And as for integrity, let me tell you a quick story: I showed up for a class that Coach Fury was teaching on a morning when a huge storm warning was issued for later that day. I was new to the class, in fact, I'd never taken it before and I'd never met Fury before. Because of the storm predicted, every other participant wussed out and was a no-show! Did Fury cancel the class? Hell no! He stayed and took me through the entire program as a one on one private coaching! That my friends, is a rare and wonderful quality.
I've been working with Fury for over a year. When I started, I hadn't even lifted a kettle bell or weights. Fury took the time to go over every piece of every move to make sure my form was correct from the beginning. His style of teaching is hands on. He will show you exactly what you should be doing & then coach you thru each step. He explains everything in common language so it's understood by newbies. And yet, he knows when you can do more & will nicely prod you to add weight while all the while encouraging you and making sure your form doesn't "suffer" from the additional weight. I would recommend Fury to anyone who wants to learn how to do things right the first time. He's very patient and calm and is a pleasure to work with.
Coach Fury is an engaging, inspiring, and compassionate trainer. His knowledge and skill are impressive, but he still gets right in there with us, no matter the range of expertise in the class. I always feel like we're in good hands with Fury at the helm!
Coach Fury is not a good instructor, he's a GREAT INSTRUCTOR!!!! Don't waste your time with others when you can go to him. He helps bolster clients to achieve their goals in a way that is fun and encouraging! Loved him from the moment I met him!
Coach Fury is awesome trainer and instructor. I worked with him for over an year now in a group class and semi-private setting. As someone that has struggled in past to incorporate fitness in to their life, he has helped me improve my form, strength, and focus through kettlebells, sandbags, and heavy weights. Not only is he smart and knowledgeable about all things fitness, he's super nice, caring, and approachable. Don't hesitate to work with him!

I have a serious love-hate relationship with the 44kg kettlebell. I first tried to press it at the Philly RKC in 2010. Though I didn't get it at the time, it went up about a month later with some tips from Geoff Neupert, Shaun Cairns and Steve Milles. Between the RKC and the July RKC II, my weight dropped from 225 to 195 and the 44kg became my half bodyweight press test. Over time, I was able to get the 44kg up about 90% of the time in either arm. My stronger arm was...
