2012 is looking like the year of the Irish Kettlebell.
Just look at whats going on:
25th March: Kettlebell Lifting and Conditioning Training for Sports I’ll be at Dolan Fitness, Tullamore to present a workshop looking at the use of Kettlebells and other “non conventional” methods to build an unstoppable athlete. This is particularly relevant to the Combat Athlete but anyone involved in sports will benefit. This is a steal at €20 for around three hours. All I ask is you come armed with an open mind and lots of questions. To book contact Kieran through firstname.lastname@example.org
15th April: Kettlebell Lifting Levels 3 & 4
You’ve been asking so here it is, the Levels 3 & 4 from my kettlebell lifting syllabus. Level 3 covers the Snatch and Jerk in minute detail, Level 4 covers Double Kettlebell Lifting including the Long Cycle event. If you plan on taking part in this years competitions, these workshops represent your opportunity to brush up on technique. If you are simply a kettlebell enthusiast looking to take your training to the next level, then you’ll enjoy these workshops. The key to all my Kettlebell workshops is attention to detail, we don’t cover many techniques but we go deep into each lift that we look at. And you get all the info emailed to you in a PDF reference manual at the end of the day. Workshops cost €35 each or €60 for both. Level 3 runs 10am-12pm, Level 4 runs 12.15pm – 2(ish)pm Bring an enquiring mind!
20th May: AIKLF Cup of Ireland – Open Kettlebell Competition
2nd – 4th June: Certified Kettlebell Teacher Levels 1 & 2 with Steve Cotter
25th August: Irish Kettlebell Sports Championships
15 -16 September: Mike Mahler Kettlebell Seminars Mark Bunce from D8 Fitness is bringing over Mike Mahler for two days of Kettlebell Lifting. I’ve been a follower of Mikes work for the best part of 10 years and I have to say, he is excellent. If you want to build size and strength and the Kettlebell is your weapon of choice, this is the workshop to attend. Mike has a unique standpoint on the use of Kettlebells in training and also on how to balance the bodies’ hormones for a fuller life. CLICK HERE for details.
It’s great to see real instruction of the use of the kettlebell and also the growth of the sport here in Ireland. Anyone who attends any of the above events will receive a level of instruction unrivalled by any of the “commercial” kettlebell courses and certification currently available in Ireland and even the UK.
