A solid workout that shows “kettlebell” moves without a kettlebell (the instructor only uses a dumbbell). So, even if you haven't yet bought a kettlebell, you can still enjoy the benefits of the booming kettlebell workout trend. Dr. Michele Olson makes it work by focusing on the kettlebell-style acceleration/deceleration elements in every movement. Her form is flawless and her one-on-one cuing is very easy to follow. The DVD features five 10-minute segments. The first includes both aerobics and toning; the other four each tone a specific body area. You can program the DVD to play any segment in any order. Requires a 3 to 10 lb. dumbbell or kettlebell. ©2008.
