Kettlebell training is an old form of Russian exercise that is rapidly catching on in the U.S.

The thing is, kettlebell training is SO different from conventional Western exercise that you need some kind of personal instruction to get started.

Of the kettlebell books & videos out there (and there are getting to be a LOT of them), Lisa Shaffer's is just about the best.

I've had the pleasure of attending a training seminar with Lisa, and her book is much like she is...friendly, professional, thorough, and easy-to-understand.

Her suggestions on how to design your own effective kettlebell training program are worth the price of the book all by themselves.

Lisa's book and a k-bell or two...all you need to "Get In the Best Shape of Your Life."

I'd seen one of my instructors with this book and decided to get it. I take classes and needed a little help in polishing up my techniques. This book is excellent! It has the exercises organized from Basics to the different types of exercise(push, pull,core and leg) as well as the level of difficulty for each exercise. The pictures are in color and very easy to follow. There's also a detailed plan for those ladies who wish to do kettlebell during pregnancy.

The book is very well written and I saw some things I was doing wrong. My classes have quite a few students so the instructor can't always tweak everyone. If you go to her site, she also offers a video of the exercises, though for now I prefer the book.

It's definitely worth the price and gives great information for someone really wanting to get into kettlebell.

Lisa Shaffer's book was the first book I bought on kettlebell training.

Since then I have been training with kettlebell's several times a week for the past three years and this book still serves me as a handy guide. Not only is Lisa incredibly knowledgeable about exercising with kettlebell's, she also stands behind her products and is sincere in her training approach. This book is one of the best out there, great photos, detailed explanation of the exercises and well designed ketlebell circuits.

I am a personal trainer and I specialize in kettlebell training. I use this book on a regular basis when designing my client workout programs. The exercise descriptions are easy to follow and are well illustrated. I also highly recommend the new DVD that goes along with this book.

I received this book several weeks ago along with the companion DVD, and the instructions, illustrations of the various exercises, as well as recommendations for working out specific body areas--and even the type of shoes to wear for these workouts, are all excellent! I would highly recommend getting the DVD with the book. The author/instructor is very knowledgeable, precise, and treats her audience with respect (a big issue for me after a negative experience with a DVD by a different instructor). I'm waiting for the next DVD by this teacher!
