IMF: Hi Gastón, introduce yourself so we can get to know you better G.G: I was born in Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina 44 years ago and I train  Kettlebell and Macebell instructors. I am a specialist in macebell swings 300º and 360º with one hand. IMF: Where do you live and where do you train? G.G: I live in Madrid, Spain and I train indoor and outdoor.

Although I liked the macebell, I could not master it or connect with it, I did some two-handed swings combining them with my kettlebell training, I left it completely for a few years. Unfortunately I do not have videos of my first swings, I would like to see myself. After that my serious beginning was in 2013, as a result of watching once more another video, this time was Ken Theissen,

Interviewing Michal Slominski - Macelifter Amateur - Poland Co-Representative

  IMF: Hello Michal, introduce yourself so we can get to know you better.  Where do you live, where do you train? M S: Hi. I come from a small town (about 100,000 people) called Grudziądz, where I started my adventure with sport: Weightlifting, rowing, crossfit. I moved to Bydgoszcz, where I crossed my roads with Wojtas. We both train at the XYZ Fight Academy Bydgoszcz club, which gives us great opportunities for development. IMF: How and when did you start training with a mace? M S: My adventure with mace started with Mace Flow trials - because I thought it was what it was for   Along with my appetite, I searched the Internet for other techniques until I found Gastón. In Poland, no one knew about Macelifting then or about the 360 and 300 swings,  techniques were very poor. IMF: What do you like most about Macelifting? M S: What I love about Macelifting is that you can do a very good workout with little weight. I also like when a big man comes from the gym and thinks he will perform 1

Interviewing Wojtas Kosmicki - Macelifter IMF Pro (Poland Co-Representative)

IMF: Hi Wojtas, introduce yourself so we know you a bit better. Where do you live, where do you train...?  W K: Hello everyone! I’m straight guy from Poland who loves unconventional sports. I’ve trained martial arts for 10 years until I’ve met kettlebells. At first kettlebells and cross training supported my fighter’s training but quickly it changed. I fall in love with kettlebells and they became my general form of training for the next 7 years. I’ve became a Kettlebell sport  instructor and competitor. Meanwhile I discovered clubbells and became one of early clubbells instructors in Poland. However clubbellls didn’t steal my heart at that time. Only thanks to Pavel Widuto I discovered balistic tools. Michal Slominski (head coach of the gym when I was trained myself and others) invited him to our gym and he have trained us in basic bulavas and clubbells training. It turned out that we both like this kind of move so much that we decided to create The Barbalinas (Non Governmental Organi
