If these were poor DVD's then any cost would be too much. In my opinion however, these are hands down the best kettlebell instructional series available. Most of these kind of exercise series have either a sports jock, or cheerleader-type person acting stupid or babbling on and on, usually with some kind of idiotic commentary. Sarah Lurie's style is very clear, straightforward and without any hype or grade-school antics. She tells and shows you exactly how to do an exercise and demonstrates it. If you want a clear, solid and extremely well done kettlebell series, this is it. I shouldn't say this, but if it were four times the cost it would still be more than worth it.
My only minor criticism is that the vol. 1 and vol. 2 discs are mislabeled: vol. 1 is actually vol. 2 and vice versa.
Followup (4 months later) : I have gone a bit nuts with other kettlebell DVD's but keep returning to this set, especially the Bootcamp workout, as our favorite. The clustered sets (5 minute clusters with 1 minute rests, repeated 4 times) is a rhythm that i really like and hard to find elsewhere. Most other dvd's offer more interval workouts- 30 seconds on 30 seconds off , for instance. Also, there are not very many double kb workouts out there so I use the Warrior 2 workout a lot also.
Note: I started with a 10 lb kb but am now using 25 lb KB (I weigh 125 lb) and burn about 10 cals per minute on my HRM for the bootcamp workout including the programmed rests and a short cooldown (done on my own). That's about the same burn rate as running 6.5 miles per hour continuously for me. I use two 20 lb KB's for the double workout and that is QUITE a heart pumper!
Just found out that Sarah was 3 months pregnant when she filmed the Warrior workouts. Yowsa. YOU GO GIRL!
all workouts are excellent with brief or lengthy explanations - you can choose what suits one's purpose/level. even brief explanations are safe as safety techniques are mentioned throughout the workouts.
i always watch a new exercise dvd before doing myself. so when i get started i dont want delays with constant explaining of techniques and specific movements. i want dvds that - once i got it - will move along well without delays to get the cardio and boy do you get it w/ these dvds.
cardio without boredom was why i decided to pursue kettlebell workout and you get exactly that - following one workout or put your own together AFTER learning proper techniques/safety - and you are toned and have gotten cardio at the same time - WITHOUT THE BORING CARDIO SCENARIO as on bikes, treadmill, or elipticals.
finally, an "un"boring cardio workout - the kettlebell - IT'S ALL YOU NEED TO GET IN EXCELLENT SHAPE!!

|Are there any recommendations for choosing kettlebell weight?||
they recommend you start with 18lbs, however 18lbs is not a standard here in the US so I picked up a 15 lb because I didn't want to over do it with 20lbs.
