I've been using kettlebells for about a year and a half now; although I'm not a beginner, I thought this DVD might be nice for variety. Also, I was interested in the tutorial segment, as it is vital to maintain good form when using kettlebells. This was my first DVD with instructor Paul Katami. I have seen clips of his prior kettlebell workouts, and I know that they tend to be faster-paced and use lighter kettlebells. (Usually, kettlebell work is done with much heavier kettlebells: recommendations average about 10-18 lbs. for woman and 26-35 lbs. for men.) Regarding weight, Katami says only to "choose the right weight" for your fitness level, but he does not make specific recommendations, nor does he reveal how heavy the weights that he and his background exercisers are using. I was also disappointed that Katami failed to talk about footwear for kettlebells, particularly in a DVD geared toward beginners. Kettlebells are traditionally performed barefoot or in low-soled shoes (Katami and crew are wearing Nike sneakers, which may or may not have low soles). Personally, I performed the workouts on this DVD barefoot and mostly using my 8 kg (about 17 lbs) kettlebell.

The Main Menu of this DVD lists the following options: Introduction - Workout Options - Bonus Features (Paul Katami Biography, Bonus from STRONG BODY, FIT BODY, Bonus from EXHALE: CORE FUSION POWER SCULPT) - Also from Acacia - Credits. Selecting Workout Options brings up a submenu with the following choices: Play All (79 min) - Tutorial (28 min) - Drills & Combinations (26 min) - Core (25 min). I have broken down each workout in detail below.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I like Paul Katami, but find most of his workouts are more advanced and/or more intense than I want to work. So, when I saw he had come out with a workout for beginners, regardless of the equipment used, I was interested. I own several kettlebells, so I was set.

I am an almost-50-year-old woman with arthritic hands and wrists and knees. I enjoy standing workouts rather than floor work. I have regularly worked out with videos for over 10 years. And, a few years ago, I took private lessons on using kettlebells for exercise.

This DVD is labeled as a kettlebell workout for beginners. If you have never touched a kettlebell before, I'm hesitant to recommend this DVD as a place to start. Paul gives tons of form pointers and many people will be okay with his instruction, but using kettlebells effectively really depends on form and this DVD does not provide the in-depth, detailed instruction I think people need to use kettlebells. However, it is more detailed and in-depth than most of the mainstream kettlebell workouts that I have seen coming out recently. Many of the others can be downright dangerous. The biggest lack in this DVD is the absence of a discussion about the weight of kettlebell to use. Paul doesn't even mention the topic and any instructional DVD for beginners to kettlebells should address the topic. So, if you have an education in kettlebells already, I think this DVD is a great option. Paul gives many, many, many form pointers in a friendly and encouraging way. He also discusses modifications to moves and encourages people to use the moves that work for them.

The DVD includes 3 workouts, each in the 23 - 29 minute range.

The first is the tutorial, which you can also use as a workout, since it covers all the major muscle groups.

I have some experience with kettlebell workouts already, though I've been on a workout hiatus for a while so I thought I'd go back to the basics. This DVD was a mixed bag for me - the workouts were fairly strenuous, which I enjoyed, but I think they lacked proper instruction. Workout 1, the 'tutorial', moves slower than the other two workouts but provides only minor instructions on form and technique. I think for a true beginner, the danger for improper form and potential injury is pretty high, and the instructor Paul Tatami doesn't go into much detail on how to make sure you take it slowly and move properly. Workout 2, the 'drills', is definitely a good workout - fast-paced, continuous movements and enough action to feel like a cardio workout as well as a strength training session! Workout 3, the 'core', is a standard core workout, it could be done with or without the kettlebell which makes it a good intro for beginners.

I also think the instructor should include some guidelines for choosing a starting weight for the kettlebell - these are very different weights from your standard dumbbell, and in my experience beginners are encouraged to start at a lower weight kettlebell than dumbbell - Tatami provides no advice in this regard.

Format: DVD
I picked this up for $11 at the local big box discount warehouse and was prepared to hate it (I am SUPER picky about exercise videos), but was surprised to really like it. The verbal instruction is very good without being annoying. The only thing I didn't like was that during the instructional portion of the video, the instructor didn't correct some improper form on the model. This is minor and most people wouldn't notice (I'm an instructor). I appreciate that the models were fit but not skinny - they looked like real people working out! Great DVD for someone just getting into kettlebell training.
