A Closer Look at the Kit Inclusions
- Kettlebell Solution Workout DVD
The Kathy Smith Kettlebell Solution Workout DVD contains four workouts. Each takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, including the 5-minute Warm-Up sequences.
The workouts all focus on a different area of the body, with one for the upper body, one for the thighs and buttocks and one for the core. There’s also a fat burning cardio workout which torches a lot of calories.
The workouts can be alternated, but if you have the time and you want faster results, two, three or all four workouts can be done daily. Whichever way you choose to go, you will soon notice your clothes becoming looser and your muscle tone improving.
- The Kettlebells
Robust enough to support Push-Ups, the kettlebells in the Kathy Smith Kettlebell Solution Kit are sand-filled. The sand doesn’t shift with movement, so the kettlebells are well-balanced. Their large handles are textured for enhanced grip. A soft-finish polycarbonate exterior ensures that they are gentle on the hands and won’t scratch your floors.
Coming in two different weights, if you are new to exercise, start with the lighter kettlebell and progress to the heavier one when you are stronger. Another option is to use the lighter kettlebell for some exercises and the heavier one for others.
- Nutrition Guide
Kathy Smith’s Nutrition Solution Guide which comes as part of Kettlebell Solution, will help you get your diet in order. It provides a sensible approach that will enable you to lose weight steadily while optimizing your energy levels.
The simple to prepare fat-burning meal and snack recipes in the guide are quick to make. They should appeal to everyone in your family, so you won’t have to cook different meals for yourself.
- Workout Wall Chart
The Kettlebell Solution Workout Wall Chart provides a handy visual reference that will enable you to view the exercises and moves in each of the routines, at a glance.
Kathy Smith Kettlebell Solution Buyer Feedback
The vast majority of reviews for Kathy Smith Kettlebell Solution are extremely positive.
Some reviewers said that the program is more challenging than they had anticipated. Conversely, a small percentage of customers consider it to be too easy. A lot of positive feedback has been received from women aged 40 to 60 plus. Many purchasers said that with regular workouts they’ve lost weight and improved their muscle tone.
The reasonable price of the kit has also received praise.
On a less positive note, a lot of people complained that Kathy Smith does not always maintain correct form. She has addressed this, with a new version of the kit which contains a 25-minute bonus DVD. In this DVD, Kathy, along with fitness trainer and former Ms. Olympia Fitness and Ms. Natural Universe title-holder Mia Finnegan, demonstrate the correct form and technique to use when doing kettlebell training.
While positive comments far outweigh the negative, some purchasers said that they find the kettlebells far too light to provide a challenging workout.
A few reviewers received defective DVDs, so had to get replacements. This is not a typical occurrence, but unfortunately, with DVDs, it does happen from time to time.
Final Thoughts on the Kathy Smith Kettlebell Solution
If you are a new to intermediate level exerciser looking for a reasonably priced kettlebell kit, check out the Kathy Smith Kettlebell Solution. The workouts are quick to do and not overly challenging. Done regularly, they will tone your muscles, improve your flexibility, and increase your strength and cardiovascular fitness. And, over time, they will enable you to shed your excess weight.
If you have been exercising for some time and you want to work with heavier weights, the Advanced Kettlebell Solution Kit may suit you. It contains everything the original kit does, but at 10lb and 15lb the weights are heavier, and it costs a bit more.
I bought my mom the kit with the lighter weights when she began working out. She loves the program, and it’s still a part of her regular fitness regimen, though she now uses heavier kettlebells.
