The Gaiam Kettlenetics Slim and Tone Kit by fitness advocate Michelle Khai proves that working out and keeping fit does not have to be boring. Kettlenetics is a fusion of dance movements and kettle bellthat slims and sculpts your body. Originating in Russia, kettle bells are traditionally made of cast iron and look like small cannonballs with a handle. They have gained popularity in recent years and are used for strength, flexibility, balance and endurance conditioning.
The Kettlenetics Slim and Tone Kit contains three Kettlenetics workouts on two DVDs. The first workout teaches the basic kettle bell moves. The second workout, FlowMotion Basics, provides 20 minutes of 360-degree total body sculpting routine. The third workout is a 40-minute Cardio Balanced workout. It takes the kettle bell workout to the next level with powerful fat burning routines. The four-pound kBell is light enough to swing around without undue stress while providing enough resistance for optimum body-shaping which is perfect for getting six pack abs such as those adored on Jillian Michaels.
Why You’ll Love It
Set to upbeat music, Kettlenetics is a fun way to a strong and slim body. The movements are easy and flowing but you will quickly feel your muscles burn. Three-dimensional weight swinging provides fat-burning and muscle-shaping benefits that you normally find in resistance training. You get maximum benefits with minimum workout time. In a matter of weeks you will experience improved stamina and endurance.

The combination of kBell, traditional kettle bell moves and dance will keep you entertained. Even women who regularly do strength training will be challenged by the Kettlenetics workout. The first DVD segment walks you through the moves. These are not the usual weight-lifting moves. Rather, they involve swinging, twisting and lunging. You’ll be amazed at the intensity of the toning workouts. Even though they only last about 20 minutes, you will feel that you have accomplished a great workout. The 4-pound kBell may seem light but you’ll notice your heart rate going up prettywhen you workout. Beginners should take it slow and easy at first.
