What is this whole "Strong As Hec" thing all about?
Image for a second... you're able to move in way that is strong. Powerful. And effortless.
Kinda like when you were 7 years old.
Remember those days?
This is exactly what I help the men in our High Performance Coaching Program, Better Man Blueprint, do and what being "Strong As Hec" is all about.
I help men 40+ who have gotten lazy and "fell off the wagon." Get in shape & build a stronger, leaner, and more capable body in ~2-3 hours per week.
... so they can become a better man, husband, and father for their wife and kids.
My name is, Hector (my friends call me "Hec.")
I wasn't always a coach.
I'm a former overweight 19 year old high school dropout! Who was bullied from elementary through high school. Turned 3rd degree BJJ Black Belt as well as a respected, and trusted, strength training professional.
Oh... and full-time husband and dad of two.
According to Pavel Tsatsouline, "strength is a skill" (a perishable skill at that).
Not only is it a skill... it serves a greater purpose.
I live my life and approach my training by this philosophy.
And for the last 23 years.
I've been teaching this philosophy to my wife, children, the students of our gym, and customers of our trusted online products and courses.
Here's what some of them have to say...

Where to start
If you're not ready to work with me (makes sense, you don't even know me. Nor has a foundation of trust been built between you and I). The best place for you to start is to grab a copy of my eBook "Kettlebell Workout Snacks."
It's an easy-to-follow (and fun) collection of my best 10-15 minute kettlebell workout programs to get in great shape (even if you think you don't have enough time to get in a quality workout).
Leaving you with plenty of time and energy for Jiu-Jitsu, your family, or whatever it is you enjoy.
But before I go on...
... if you're not interested in learning how to harness the power and effectiveness of using kettlebells for strength, mobility, endurance, fat loss and overall well being and not only that---- but how they translate to REAL LIFE.

"Best investment I ever did."
"Working with you has not only improved me physically but also mentally."
"The best written programs I've seen to date."
"I will NEVER Doubt You Again, EVER!"
To call Hector's programming magical would be an understatement. He helped me ace my kettlebell recertification in less than 5 weeks. His program Better Man Blueprint is the way to go and, if you get an opportunity to spend time with him in person or virtually, do it!
"The Best Looking Program I've Seen!"
I've had the opportunity to join Hector's coaching program, Better Man Blueprint and I love it! I can't wait to dive into his mastermind coaching program next... and I've gotta say... this has got to the best written program I've seen to date.
"Down 13% body fat, BEST Decision I have made"
I started with Hector at 182lbs. and 29.7 percent body fat. Six months later, I had dropped down to 152 lbs and 13% body fat. Getting started with Hector here has been the best decision I have made so far when it comes to my health and well being.
I Was On the Verge of "giving up"
When I started working with Hector 18 months ago, I had pains throughout my body running from my ankle and calves through my shoulder and neck. I was on the verge of "giving up" when I was introduced to Hector. Within 6 weeks, I noticing my aches and pains had diminished. After 12 weeks, I couldn't even remember what the aches and pains felt like. I am now pushing 50, and if I had found Hector earlier in my life, I know I could have avoided many years of pain and stayed healthy and in shape for a much longer period of time.Thank you Hector.
"This Program Will Not drain You"
After completing Hector's program, I must say it's one of the best programs I’ve tried. You truly get maximum effectiveness for the short amount of time it requires to complete. This program will not drain you... it will make you stronger, leaner and better conditioned. The last thing a busy dad like me needs is to add additional stress to an already hectic schedule. Thank you so much Hector!
"Strength and Conditioning to Another Level!"
The first time I saw a kettlebell I thought , “there is absolutely no way this little thing will give me the workout I need.” Well, other than BJJ, this was the toughest training I've ever done. Training with Hector helped my BJJ game in more ways than I could imagine . Being a fellow BJJ practitioner himself, he knew exactly what I needed to improve my performance for the mat. Hector's kettlebell program as taken my strength and conditioning to another level!
"My Shoulders Feel Happier"
Hector's Swing STRONG! program helped me hit 100 swings in 4:42 with the 32kg bell and my wife Danielle with the 24kg. Other surprises were our lats , felt like rocks towards the end and I snatched a 32kg bell which felt surprisingly strong! But the best part is, my shoulders feel happier and my pull-ups improved as the program moved forward.
"Effective, Proven, and Straight to the Point"
Within 4 weeks I started to experiencing the benefits of Hector's strength training system. I finally finished my first 5 min round. Without gassing out! My grips are stronger, guard passing and sweeping my spar partners has greatly improved. It also appears—my body, especially my shoulders are bulking up and developing.
Coach Hec's strategies are really effective, proven, and straight to the point. The benefits he mentions are pretty much what you can expect.
"Completed 'Simple' with 32kg in 12 weeks."
"Hector's Programs Are Not Gold, they're Platinum!"
To my surprise, Hector's programs delivered way more than I expected. I was initially just hoping it would improve my rep max on double 28 pressing and maybe help me nail a double 32 press (technically a bodyweight press) But I was in for a bigger surprise, I had a lot more PRs from this program. I did get my double 28kg press to go from 4 to 5 reps, pressed double 32s but also managed a few more PRs. Hector's programs are not gold, they're platinum!
"In 4 weeks I'm leaner"
In 4 weeks I'm leaner and my arms are more muscular than I have been in a while. I love the simplicity of Hector's programs--they don't take away from anything else in my life like BJJ and spending time with my family, yet still provides results. It is great to have a coach who has accomplished everything I aspire to and has already walked the path, I really appreciate how quickly Hector has been able to get back with me when I had questions.
"Ran my last marathon 30 minutes faster"
Training with Hector and following his program only 3 days per week--helped me run my last marathon 30 minutes faster and I felt I could’ve gone another 5 or 6 miles. I did no other strength training, only my normal runs. I didn't even add my traditional "speed days" like I would have done in the past. Everyone needs to work with Hector in his kettlebell program!
"The Highest Privilege I’ve had"
Training under Hector has been the highest privilege I’ve had in Jiu-Jitsu, he helped me develop a confidence that I didn’t even know existed. His coaching isn’t overwhelming with a bunch of fancy exercises. Hector will teach you how, why, and when to move. Within 2 months of training, my resting heart rate dropped to the 50's and my blood pressure dropped to around 110/70. I had chronic hip pain that disappeared after a few weeks of training while my flexibility and mobility skyrocketed; I even dropped 10-15 pounds!
"Added 20 Pounds to My Deadlift 3 Rep Max!"
Hector's Swing STRONG! program added 20 pounds to my deadlift 3 Rep Max! (335-3550. I even squatted the 36's for the first time EVER! The crazy part is, I wasn't able to do any of these things before I started and I didn't even train them while doing my swings.
"I Medaled for the FIRST Time As a Brown Belt!"
Hector's coaching helped me prepare for the Pan JJ championships (one of the biggest BJJ tournaments). I medaled for the FIRST time as a brown belt! His coaching program helped me reach a new level of athleticism. It is the perfect balance of strength, power, and flexibility that I was missing in my game!
"I Gained 5 Pounds of Lean Muscle"
I loved Hector's complex program 701A! By the end of the program I gained 5 pounds of lean muscle on my arms, shoulders, and back. I loved how the program waved in all areas and allowed me to recover from session to session. I look forward to going through the program again, this time with 24's and 28's.
"I'm in the Best Shape of My Life"
I have to say that training with Hector and following his coaching and programming has had a HUGE impact on my strength, power, and recovery on the mat. At 30 years old, I'm in the best shape of my life.
