About Al

Al Kavadlo

I started working out in 1992 when I was just 13 years old. A decade later I began my career in the fitness industry.

In 2009, I started this blog and my YouTube channel. I wound up getting a book deal with Dragon Door Publications soon thereafter.

My first book for Dragon Door, entitled Raising The Bar, was released in 2012. I went on to publish several titles with them, including Get Strong, a collaboration with my brother Danny. I’m also known for my appearance in Dragon Door’s popular Convict Conditioning book series.

I’ve also self-published several titles, which you can find at FortifyTraining.com.

Altogether my books and programs have sold over a million copies worldwide.

I don’t update this blog much anymore, but there’s still lots of useful, free content here, so feel free to dig around. If you like the free stuff, maybe you’ll want to pick up one of my books or programs.
