Have you been looking for some steel mace inspiration on Instagram? Do you want to follow the best steel mace trainers on Instagram?

Well, look no further. We’ve compiled a list of the top steel mace Instagrammers to follow for mace education, workouts, exercises, inspiration, and motivation.

Best Steel Mace Instagram Criteria:

We’ve chosen the following accounts based on a few criteria. To make it on this list, the Instagram page must be steel mace focused, meaning they often post about steel maces. Furthermore, the page must provide value, be that education, inspiration, motivation, or all of the above. We know many people in the steel mace community are worthy of this list, but we wanted to provide pages that are heavily steel mace focused and from people who are skilled with the steel mace - self-taught or certified, it doesn’t matter. Their understanding of steel mace training and JAM (joints, actions, muscles) must be up to par. Also, we want to provide you with steel mace Instagram pages that create their own content. 

You can be confident that when you follow these Steel Mace Instagrams you will be following someone who you can trust and learn from, one way or another.


Here's our list of the best Instagrams to follow for Steel Mace Training, in no particular order...

Leo Savage 

If you’ve been following mace stuff on Instagram at all you’ve probably seen Leo. He is the steel mace flow master, and he is quite eccentric. We recommend checking out Leo if you want to learn how to flow with the mace. He’s a steel mace coach who is clearly very passionate about what he does, so you’ll definitely be inspired to flow, and you'll be in great hands.

Anthony Rock

Rock is a good friend of SET FOR SET and someone who we’ve been collaborating with pretty much since day one. He is a fantastic coach and another flow master. He swings maces and kettlebells, and does all types of traditional and unconventional training as well. If you are on the new wave of fitness, he’s a guy who you can learn a ton from. His Monday Mace Breakdowns are ultra-informative and will help you advance your mace skills quickly. If you are in the Portland area, you may even be able to learn from him in person or set up a workshop. If you want education, inspiration, motivation and proper tutorials, get over to his page.

Kelly Manzone

Kelly Manzone is another good friend of SET FOR SET and a super awesome coach. Her mace style is traditional, and there’s no BS with her. She puts out a lot of content in the unconventional space. She swings maces, clubs, kettlebells and more. Her collection of equipment is magnificent - old school gada-style maces and other stuff you’ve possibly never seen. There is so much to learn by following her page and she will definitely motivate you to work hard.

Steel Mace Warrior 

Victoria Islas, aka Steel Mace Warrior, is a down to earth, certified steel mace coach. She runs an awesome steel mace podcast and has had some really great guests on, many who are on this list.

These are the vibes the steel mace community wants and needs.

Erik "Esik" Melland

Esik, aka the Viking Ninja, is a pioneer in the world of steel mace training. Many of the movements you will see around the community have been created by him. He has his own gym in Texas called Viking Ninja Academy so if you want to learn in person from one of the greats, you have the ability to do so. All in all, if you are looking for top of the line education and inspiration, head over to his Instagram and get started on your mace journey with help from one of the best.

Valhalla Training Academy

This guy is a true modern day Viking. His training style is extremely badass and he makes it look so smooth and like a hell of a lot of fun. He uses maces, atlas stones, kegs, olympic bars, kettlebells, axes, heavy maces…and more maces. He will surely bring a lot of people into the mace world with his style. If you want an inspirational Viking-worthy training regiment, go follow him immediately. Some of the best steel mace flows in the game.

Jamie is essentially Wonder Woman with a mace. If you are looking for education and motivation via a women’s touch, she’s the way to go. She moves with incredible purpose.

Mr. Maceman

No macebell list would be complete without the legend himself - Mr Maceman. He was one of the first to bring steel maces to the scene in the West. He’s pure tradition, teaching the fundamentals of steel mace training to precision. His page is great for motivation and inspiration. He also travels the world running workshops, so keep an eye out if you want to learn from him in person. If you are a gym owner, you can reach out to him about running a workshop.


This guy is F’in awesome. Herbert is the Dutch mace specialist. He travels the world and he’s always got his mace with him. He does flow tutorials on his page which are extremely informative and well done. It’s nice that he doesn’t just flow awesome, he teaches it well too. Moreover, his ability to inspire is next level. He has some awesome videos flowing outside of places like the Taj Mahal, Golden Gate Bridge, and many more equally dope places. His travels to India, the home of the Gada (the original mace training tool), are really fun to follow. He’s one of our personal favorites to keep an eye on.

This page isn’t necessarily dedicated to steel mace movement, but it has some of the best information on training properly and building a foundation of solid movement and mobility so you don’t get injured and to upgrade your overall fitness. That being said, many of the exercises and tutorials apply to steel mace training, like using bands to improve your steel mace 360 form.
