Jason Kane

Jason Kane is one of the finest kettlebell instructors in Ireland and is the only person in Europe to have tamed the beast (48Kg kettlebell; strict press, pistol squat and pull-up). He is constantly studying the latest training techniques to ensure his courses are of the highest standard possible and always the most up to date.

Jason graduated from Dublin Institute of Technology in 2009 with a BEng Hon’s Degree in Structural Engineering. After the down turn in the construction industry Jason decided to make a career out of his passion for fitness and performance. Since he was a child, Jason has trained and competed in many styles of martial arts including Kenpo, Muay Thai, BJJ and boxing.

In 2010, Jason gained his personal training qualification from the National Training Centre. After working in commercial gyms and becoming frustrated watching people invest huge amounts of time and money without ever achieving their goals, Jason co-founded Urban Fitness with the mission to enable people to reach their health, fitness and performance potential safely and efficiently.

Over the last two years Jason has invested hugely into continuous education by attending workshops, seminars and certifications to keep his clients up to date with the latest fitness trends. He has qualified as an RKC, SFG level 1 & 2 kettlebell instructor, CKFMS corrective exercise specialist, DNS (Dynamic neuromuscular stabilisation) for exercise professionals, Primal move, IABI level one boxing coach and Precision Nutrition Coach.

He has studied under some of the leading names in the industry:

  • Phil Richards
  • Phil Learney
  • Irish Strength Institute
  • Dan John
  • Pavel Tsatsouline

When not instructing at Elite Fitness & Performance Academy, Jason works at the gym he co-owns, Urban Fitness with a wide variety of clients with varied goals, from the house wife looking to tone up to the executive looking to improve his golf game, and athletes looking for peak performance (golf, ironman, pro fighters)
