NEW – Kettlebell manuals available

Did you know that Wild Geese is home to one of Ireland’s top kettlebell instructors?

Did you know that other instructors travel to Wild Geese to learn how to properly use and teach kettlebells.

Dave Hedges has carved a reputation for high quality hard training and top notch instruction in both his classes and workshops that he runs out of Wild Gees HQ.
Well now he has finally gotten round to writing his Kettlebell Manuals.

The manuals are a series of eBooks that cover the same information as taught in the Level 1 to 4 workshops.
Dave has just launched the Level 1 and Level 2 manuals, with 3 and 4 to follow soon.
The manuals are direct, to the point, detailed and completely free from BS and propaganda. This is about learning to lift and to train in the safest and most efficient manner possible.

In Level 1 you will learn:

  • Anatomy of a Kettlebell
  • Basic Joint Mobility
  • Deadlift & Romanian Deadlift
  • The Swing
  • Squatting with a Kettlebell
  • The Military Press
  • And More..
In Level 2 you will learn:
  • Refining the Swing
  • Breathing techniques
  • The Clean
  • The Push Press
  • The Turkish Get Up
  • and More..
If you’ve recently attended one of Dave’s workshops you will already have received a copy free of charge, but for those of you unable to attend the workshops, they are a fantastic alternative.
Here’s what Roseanne said:
“….The detailed manual handed out at the end was worth the price of the workshop (€30) by itself….”
For a limited time the eBooks will be available for €5.99 each, after that they will go up to the full price of €12.99.

New Kettlebell Fitness Classes at Wild Geese

Demand for the Kettlebell Fitness class at Wild Geese Martial Arts & Fitness has skyrocketed over the last month or two, to the point where I’ve been turning folk away.

This just will not do.

The good news is that there has been a time slot made available on the Saturday afternoon that we can open a new Kettlebell class.
The provisional start date for the weekend training will be Saturday 22nd May.

We’ll be running two classes back to back, beginners then Intermediate/Advanced.

Now I’m still trying to confirm the start times of these sessions as there is another instructor vying for a weekend slot, but keep a space in your diaries somewhere between 12 and 2pm, I’ll be confirming the exact times later in the week.

There will also be a classes starting at the Platinum Gym in Balbriggan. We are in final negotiations over the start times and hope to have these launched very soon. We will open the Balbriggan classes with a workshop covering the basics and go from there.

As always I will keep a cap on numbers and close the classes off to new people if it gets full.

Other kettlebell related news: We’ve put in an order with our Kettlebell supplier so in the next few weeks we will have a fresh stock of bells for you to buy and train with at home. Again, I’ll keep you posted.
