Dave Hedges

14 Magennis Pl, Dublin 2, Ireland

It all started when I was 16.
I was a brown belt in Karate and had just failed a grading test for the first time ever. I was also struggling in competitions.

This was when my instructor, Jack Parker utter the life changing phrase:

“Dave, you need to get strong”

And the rest is history.

Since then I trained with my school Rowing squad where I learned about combining strength, power and endurance. This training ensured I never again failed a grade.

Over the years that followed I trained a variety of martial arts, took up Mountain Biking, Fell Running, Strength Training until I landed in Ireland.

Here I qualified as a trainer by receiving the NCEHS certificate.
And then in no particular order:

IKFF Master Trainer for Ireland
Anatomy in Motion Lvl 3 practitioner
Certified Kettlebell Trainer Level 2 under Steve Cotter’s IKFF (www.IKFF.net)
National Level Kettlebell Coach under Vasily Ginko’s IUKL-IKSA
and more, it’s all on the wall when you come in to train….

Oh, and I’ve been featured by:
My Mad Methods magazine
Onnit Academy website
Sheer Strength Labs
Ben Bruno.com, TonyGentilcore.com, MuayEireann.com, Scott Birds Straight to the Bar daily and more.
