"We can only take someone where we've been personally and only give them what we've acquired ourselves. The process of your individual athletic development translates into what you are capable of bringing to a potential client. As a result, we concentrate ourselves as Athletes First... Coaches Second. Many people attend CST Seminars exclusively for the vibrant experience of learning how to receive 100% of the health, strength and performance benefits from this powerful system." - Scott Sonnon

CST In Sports

"I have to credit my Clubbell® training. When I do Clubbell® training two or three times per week, it improves my cardio for my fights, my grip, and my forearm and shoulder strength for fighting. Clubbell® deserves special thanks."
- Andrei Arlovski, Former UFC Heavyweight Ultimate Fighting Champion

"Scott Sonnon's CST seminar is one of the best I have ever attended. I consider Coach Sonnon one of the best teachers I have ever met. Definitely worth the time and money.”
- Steve Maxwell, 2X World Masters Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Champion, Senior Russian Kettlebell Instructor, Owner of the largest BJJ gym in the North East

"The Clubbell® is the most integrated workout tool I use to train for fitness competitions. I love how much it hits my abdominals. Every exercise originates from my power house: a very real way of working out by creating skill & form in a functional manner."
- Holly Rustick, 2003 Ms. Fitness Hawaii, Ms. Fitness USA Contestant "

"The Clubbell® has replaced all of my traditional weight training, and I'm hitting much harder than ever. If you're looking for the key to your chosen sport then the Clubbell® is definitely the way to go!"
- Egan Inoue, 2X World Racquetball Champion, 2X World Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Champion, NHB Champion

"I want to say that CST is the hands-down best health and fitness system for the martial artist or MMA athlete! " - Ryan Williams, XFO (X-Treme Fighting Championships) MMA Champion

"The most significant benefits I get from my CST - overall improvement on my strength and conditioning... stronger... better recovery." - Jorge Rivera, UFC Fighter (Jorge trains CST with CST Instructor Sean Flanagan three60fitness.com)

Bells With Clubs : Clubbell Diva Sara

The 5-lb clubbell was designed with the female fitness enthusiast in mind. Women already involved with CST say that they're the ultimate tool for agility, coordination, grace and poise, not to mention an outstanding fat-burning machine and belly-flattening miracle!

Other fitness workshops give you some fast-food blitz of over-fed rote programs. If you're interested in not being in control of your life and your fitness levels, if you need to be hand-held through supposedly "easy" walk of health and strength, then go to your local neon signed gym and talk to a personal trainer.

When you're finished and you're ready for the freedom of truly Unlimited Potential, then you can come to the CST. It's not for everyone, only the people who want to be their very best and be able to both talk the talk and walk the walk in any activity.
