Sydney HKC Update!!

I’ve just gotten off the phone with the Iron Tamer and I have to say I am more than a little excited. We were talking about what workshops to do the day after the HKC (the 14th) and came up with some brilliant ideas.

Here’s what we came up with:

Kettlebell Fundamentals – Deepening your Get Up skills.

Here’s a taste of what’s in store for you –

  • How did the Turkish Getup get it’s name? Fascinating…bet you hardly any one can tell you that answer. Dave will!

  • The critical importance of hip mobility in the Getup and how the movement can actually assess mobility (movement)
  • The subtle ‘windshield’ wiper move that can make all the difference in the hips
  • Setting the pelvis to correct your vectors
  • A really cool way to bridge the hips so you can sense the direction of movement on the initial phase of the Getup (Dave stresses many times that it is NOT a sit-up motion)
  • Why he prefers the ‘High Bridge’ in the Getup and why it was added
  • Demonstration of the KB Arm Bar for shoulder and T-spine mobility/stability     (Yes there is a right and wrong way to do the arm bar for best results)
  • The importance of the wrist and grip for KB success
  • Understanding your 90 degree angles during each phase of movement (quality…not quantity)
  • How everything ends up being related to the Getup and Swing…such a great insight into recognizing how it all ties together so you understand that’s it’s more than just an exercise.


Cost is $250. Workshop will run from 10am to 12pm.

He’s also going to run a workshop on Lessons of the Old Time Strongmen –

  • Watch Dave perform some unbelievable feats of strength.
  • How to chase strength while maintaining form and function without the technological overload seen in today’s fitness industry.
  • See how the RKC and FMS strategies roll into one to create freak strength.
  • Use these secrets to unlock advanced kettlebell exercises like the Windmill and Bent Press.
  • The Windmill is a powerful exercise for shoulder and rib cage mobility and an excellent stretch for the hips.
  • The Bent Press does more for the upper body than any other exercise. A powerful lat builder it also develops shoulders extraordinary in their mobility and resilience, and powerful triceps.

Cost is $250. Workshop will run from 1pm to 3pm.

But, wait, there’s more!

In a first for Australia we are going to run some one on one sessions with a Master RKC! Here’s how it works –

We are going to have 5 one on one sessions available with Dave Whitley on Friday the 12th. For your time you will receive an FMS assessment by me, Australia’s first Certified Kettlebell Functional Movement Specialist and only RKCII. Once I have screened you I will pass you over to Dave where he will run you through a workout plan designed to individually tighten up your leaks. The FMS is like a laser guided GPS to assess and fix weaknesses and asymmetry. Under his expert tutelage you will learn how to undo all the movement flaws you have from a lifetime of sports, injuries or sedentary behaviour. Then he will create a workout plan just for you based on these corrections that will help you to get in the best shape of your life!

These sessions are limited though and we are deadly serious about the limit of 5 spaces only. These sessions are $250 each.

As a special deal – if you book now for all three here’s what you’ll get:

For $600 you’ll get a one on one session plus access to the two workshops.

If you only want to attend the workshops (and miss all the benefits of having a Master RKC write you an individually tailored program) and book before October 13 the cost is only $400. After that it will be $450 for the two workshops.

Don’t delay – the one on one sessions will be gone before you know it. I already have two people who have told me they are keen. If you want more details email me at

For those who still haven’t even booked the HKC yet – what are you waiting for! This is your chance to join the ranks of the elite trainers of the world! Follow this link to sign up for this great course.
