RdellaTraining.com | No BS Strength & Conditioning: Kettlebells, Barbells, & Bodyweight Training



Hey, I’m Scott.

If You Want to Know How This Site Can Help YOU, PLEASE READ.

Hey, I’m Scott Iardella.

I’m a strength coach, movement teacher, podcaster, and author of the NEW book, The Edge of Strength.

I’m quite fortunate to have a unique background as a former physical therapist and competitive bodybuilder turned strength athlete – which has provided different insights to bridge gaps in health, fitness, and performance.

When people ask what I do, it’s pretty simple.

I help people discover the best version of themselves through a foundation of strength.

I help today’s serious fitness enthusiast or athlete maximize their potential and get powerful health, fitness, or performance-related results.

I help people who are serious about their performance get better results and perform at a higher level.

It doesn’t matter whether beginner or advanced – I help people resolve problems and challenges once and for all.

I’ll be totally honest – my stuff is not MAINSTREAM.

If you’re fed up with the mainstream approach, you’re definitely in right spot.

I focus on a few specific areas.

And I don’t just talk or write about these methods – I LIVE THEM.


These methods and areas of human performance include:

  • Human movement
  • Fundamental Bodyweight Training
  • Kettlebell Training
  • Powerlifting 
  • Olympic Weightlifting

Basically, I’m a kettlebell enthusiast, powerlifter, and Olympic weightlifter – this is really where I focus.

These areas are my passions because they’re all movement and performance based.

They’re similar, but yet so different.

And, if you think any of these are are out of your scope – I’d challenge you to “suspend your disbelief”about what you can do.


I combine my passions and 30+ years of experience with my background as a physical therapist, strength coach, and athlete to help people “disrupt the status quo” and get to the next level.


And, WE all need to get the next level.

I’m fortunate to have a deep background which blends my experiences as a clinician, a scientist, and an athlete with over 3 decades of experience.

That’s right – over 30 years of being in the trenches myself.

I’ve worked with a lot of different people from professional athletes to the general population in many roles for many years.

Specifically, my current credentials and background include:

  • Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy (MPT)
  • Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS)
  • Certified Sports Nutritionist by the International Society of Sports Nutrition (CISSN)
  • StrongFirst Level II Certified Kettlebell Instructor (SFGII)
  • StrongFirst Certified Barbell Instructor (SFL)
  • USA Sports Performance Weightlifting Coach (USAW)
  • Functional Movement Specialist (FMS)
  • Precision Nutrition Certified Level 1 (PN1)
  • Certified Speed and Agility Coach (CSAC)

This combination is quite uncommon, as you might guess, but it means I bring a lot to the table.

I get maximum results while keeping things simple.

When I’m not training, I’m usually attending workshops, seminars or lectures to always get better and improve myself.

I’ve been fortunate and honored to personally work with and learn from so many top coaches and awesome people such as:

  • Pavel Tsatsouline
  • Kelly Starrett
  • Chad Wesley-Smith
  • Greg Everett
  • Glenn Pendaly
  • Danny Camargo
  • Gray Cook
  • Geoff Neupert
  • And, too many more to name.

Why should you care about any of this?

Because the better I get – the better you get!

I not a “hacker” sitting behind a keyboard.

Nope, I actually do everything I write about here – all the lifts, techniques, and methods.

In other words, I practice what I preach.



Glad you asked.

Strength gives us the ability to be more, to do more, and to have more.

It literally makes everything else better in our lives.

It’s true.

Strength is the KEY to the 3 major goals we all have, which are:

1-To Perform Better
2-To Feel Better
3-To Look Better

And, you’ll learn WHY it’s so important for all of us in my NEW book – The Edge of Strength, which I’m totally excited about.



Anyway, I’m glad you found this site.

I hope you join me in the journey together.


1.)   I’m most proud to be a husband and a father of two. It’s the major driver for doing what I do everyday.

2.)   I’m an insane book reader. What I mean is that I read everything I can get my hands on. I love books and always share the great stuff I read. I’ve got more book recommendations for you than you can possibly imagine. If there’s a strength and performance book you’ve seen – chances are I’ve read it…

3.)   I’m a former competitive bodybuilder. I competed for 6 years and it was an amazing experience that changed my life.

4.)   I overcame a major back injury. After my first bodybuilding show, I suffered a severe disc herniation that required surgery. It was one of the worst things that ever happened to me. It was also something that radically changed my life for the better.

5.)   I experienced some “down years” in my training. Things were pretty bad for a while, then I woke up and discovered the importance of strength and movement. It’s been an incredible journey ever since.

6.)   I’ve been working with people for over 30 years in the medical and fitness industries. I started working in a gym when I was in my teens and have been working with people in different roles ever since.

7.)   I’m always a student. You see, experts are students first and always.

8.)   I’m a total science nerd. I’m actually one of those guys that reads scientific publications and journals. I’ve been doing it for over 20 years now and I flat out love the science and practice of human health and performance.

9.)   I’m a weightlifter, powerlifter, and kettlebell enthusiast. I work to get a little better each and every day.

10.)   I REALLY care about your results. I’ve made mistakes and I’ve definitely figured some things out along the way. That’s why I created this site.
