What You Should Know
Absolute Beginners Fitness: 3 in 1 Kettleball is a workout DVD with Amy Bento. The workout DVD details an effective kettlebell workout that can be used by a beginner or seasoned kettlebell user. Amy Bento is a celebrity of sorts in the fitness community. Most of her videos are available through NRG Fitness, which appears to be her official website. The Absolute Beginners Fitness: 3 in 1 Kettlebell video is not available from that official website. We did find information on the video on Amazon.com where the DVD is sold. The DVD does not come with a kettlebell, so the dieter will need to purchase a kettlebell or set of kettlebells for use with the video.

The Absolute Beginners Fitness: 3 in 1 Kettlebell routine contains three sections – a tutorial, beginner workout and intermediate workout.

The description of the Absolute Beginners Fitness: 3 in 1 Kettlebell workout claims anyone can use the instructions to achieve their fitness goals. This may be true, but the added cost of a kettlebell set may be too expensive for some dieters. A quality set of kettlebells retails for more than $50, plus shipping and handling. The shipping costs can be outrageous as kettlebells are just sold weight balls with handles.
Testimonials are important for fitness DVDs. According to the reviews available on Amazon.com, the DVD allows time between moves and detailed descriptions of each movement. Consumers claims the workout is just hard enough to work up a sweat, but easy enough to learn in just one session. Some reviews complain about the instruction tactic, music and instructor interaction. As one consumer claimed, the instructor flirts with the camera while using a kettlebell far too light to achieve any fitness benefits.
The cost of the Absolute Beginners Fitness: 3 in 1 Kettlebell DVD is less than $12. Again, consumers need to purchase the kettlebells separately so there is an additional cost.
