This is a very well thought-out fitness program. Amy Bento is good at explaining the moves. The tutorial sets the mood for the beginner and intermediate portion of the kettlebell program.

A great introduction the kettle bells. Starts with a tutorial to encourage proper posture and technique, followed by a beginner workout, and progresses to an intermediate workout. A good way to start using kettle bells.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motivating Beginner Kettlebell DVD Dec 27 2009
By AWalker - Published on Amazon.com
This was a Christmas present from my husband. I had tried a few other Kettlebell Dvd's featuring master Kettlebell instructors but felt a little overwhelmed by their magnitude. I was very encouraged with this beginners level by Ms. Bento. I like her instructions and cueing;she gives you time to catch your breath after power moves or when switching to a new move. I really wanted to learn how to use kettlebells because you don't need alot of space to use them and I needed more variety in my workouts. I learned about this DVD from Prevention mag and am very happy my husband ordered it for me. I am 54 yr old and actively work out 4 times/wk and feel this beginners DVD was right for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely perfect for certain types of beginners.... Jan. 11 2010
By Colleen M. Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
I consider myself a beginner,as I am brand new to kettlebell, but not new to fitness workouts. I work out daily with many types of workouts (pilates, yoga, dance, cardio, step, etc). I felt Absolute Beginner would give me what I needed to learn the basics and was interested because it also included an intermediate workout as well.

The cuing is good, she lets you know what you should and should not be doing so that you know proper form,so for that I felt it was worth it. The tutorial section instructed 6 basic moves and took about 10 minutes.

The beginner portion was about 20 minutes and you practice moves you learned in the tutorial section.

The intermediate portion was also about 20 minutes and I thought might have a bit more moves, but the main difference seemed to be that she added in a bit of extra cardio between the toning moves (such as simulating a jump rope, etc). Maybe I expected a little more, or maybe I am not quite as beginner as I think I am.

Both workouts end with a two minute stretch that basically stretches the glutes and hip flexors. I was a little surprised that there wasn't a bit more, but then again, the workout is only 20 minutes, so maybe that is about right.

I started with a 7 lb. weight and felt the moves were very easy to follow and I could build up later with a heavier kettlebell as I feel the need.

As far as the instructor, she absolutely knows her stuff, but I can't say I am a huge fan, she is a bit too chatty for my tastes and a little bit over the top on the motivational, "you can do it" stuff.

The music was not my idea of great workout music-which unless I'm doing a dance workout should basically just be a little background, not an urban kind of sound with sirens in some spots. So, musicwise, also, a little over the top.

So, who is this workout for? I would say those that are fitness beginners (not just kettlebell, but fitness in general), older exercisers (I'm middle aged, so I mean older than that...) or those that have lifted no weights and are starting from the ground, ground floor.

I borrowed this one from the library, and I have decided I would outgrow this much too soon, so will not be purchasing, but if you fall into one of the categories above, this may be just the ticket to start a fitness regime that will work your body, and give you a little cardio from someone who knows the ropes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The way to start Kettlebells Jan. 1 2010
By P H F - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video is absolutely the way to start in Kettlebells! She has a training section, a beginners and intermediate section. Her form and moves are right on. I started with five pounds and the first time could only get through one circuit. I am doing better now. It is my third day with this. She also has some stretching after the beginning workout. The intermediate section also includes some cardio. And, of course, I hadn't worked out in a couple of years but feel that this will keep me going. It is fun and short when you are finished you know you have had a workout. I am 69 years old....

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Foundation for Kettlebell !!! Jan. 17 2010
By Picasolover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a 35 year-old- female. I was an athlete in high school and have been pretty athletic up until about a year ago, when I got very busy. I have been trying to get back in to an exercise routine for a while now and this dvd was perfect. Since I've worked as a massage therapist, I'm very concerned abut safety and proper form. Amy Bento gives thorough explanations of each of the moves. Additionally, it's a great motivator, since you feel a sense of accomplishment after a 20-minute workout (25 minutes if you do the additional stretch.) If you are just getting back in to exercise, this is perfect. She also includes an intermediate work-out - also 20 minutes. The only move she could explain a bit more thoroughly is the move called "the clean." The trick is putting your thumb out , so the bell does not slam in to your wrist. She does this, but she does not actually say it. Here is a demo of "the clean" that I found on youtube.[...] Amy Bento's DVD is produced by Tamilee Webb, who always produces quality and safe work-outs. (She did the Buns of Steel Videos in the 80's) It's also visually appealing compared to the dvd by another company that came with the actual Kettlebell purchase. The music is okay on this one. Not great, but not too distracting. It would be nice if there was an 'instructor only' option, so I could play my own music. But, the music is not really a problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for beginners, especially if you have a Jabba the Hutt belly! Nov. 24 2010
By Mrs Miniver - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
** Kettle bells work! ** Revised 05/12/11, I still hate my kettle bell. I hate it when I realize it's kettle bell workout day. I'm sore not for days now but just a day after using my kettle bell in places I didn't even know that I had muscles! Going up stairs is torture after using your KB. So, after that rousing endorsement, let me say this is my second DVD as the first one, the Go Fit workout, is far too hard. Amy's style is easy, clear and has enough breaks in the action to let you catch your breath. I now like to switch off between the beginning and intermediate workout. Some days, I find the "easier" program harder if I haven't done it in a couple of weeks. One thing I've noticed is that one really gets better at the moves, which are simple but you can feel your hip snaps and thrusts really working. ** I've taken off an inch from my mama belly **
