The year is flying in at breakneck speed and we’re running out of time.
My little man will be back in school next week starting his second year, senior infants. It wasn’t that long ago we were doing with him what we are currently doing with his little brother, potty training!
It’s nuts how quick time is passing by.
It’s the reason I announced a few weeks ago that I’m scaling back on my workshop schedule and any events that take me away from my kids for any length of time.
So with only 4 months remaining this year, I will only be running 4 workshops.
Here’s how it looks:
Kettlebell Lifting Levels 1&2
8th September, 1000 – 1600 This is the last public kettlebell workshop I’m running this year. We will stick more or less to the Level 1 and 2 syllabus, but if we have the time we may explore other avenues of the kettle. The information covered will be:
The Swing, from beginner to advanced practitioner
Press & Push Press
The day is open to all, it is ideal for those picking up a kettle for the first time or practitioners looking to better understand the lifts. It is also a prerequisite for attending the following months Instructor Training Cert. For booking details, please CLICK HERE
Kettlebell Instructor Certification
5th & 6th October, 0900 – 1700 both days. This will be held in Dublin, venue tbc.
This is a pass or fail cert where you will be tested from start to finish on your ability to actually teach the lifts, arrange classes and create workouts. Your fitness is only worth 15% of the pass mark. This is about becoming a quality instructor, not merely a practitioner.

Kettlebell / Bodyweight Training
9th November, Tramore Kettlebell Fitness, Co Waterford This is going to be an action packed, fun day covering an array of kettlebell lifts from the mundane to the downright awesome. We’ll also be looking at how we can combine them with bodyweight exercises to create strong, athletic bodies. Some of what we’ll cover are:
Kettlebell Pressing variations
Full body push up variations
Combining kettles & bodyweight to create an iron midsection
Like I say, it’ll be a fun day and largely steered by the participants and their questions.
Booking details will be announced in the next few days.
