What You Should Know
Gaiam Kettlenetics Slim and Tone Kit comes with three workouts and a kettle bell. The kettle bell weighs just four pounds, but most beginners will find this weight sufficient for the first few weeks. The program instructor is Michelle Khai, the creator of the Kettlenetics program. Complete details on the program and kit are available from the official Gaiam website. Using kettle bells for cardio and toning workouts takes some practice as the weight is often used for swinging exercises. Everything the dieter needs to follow the Kettlenetics program is included in the Gaiam Kettlenetics Slim and Tone Kit.
List of Ingredients
Three Workouts, Weight Loss Guide and 4-Pound Kettle bell.
The three workouts included in the Gaiam Kettlenetics Slim and Tone Kit are KB Elements, Flowmotion Basics and Cardio Balanced. The first two workouts last 20 minutes and the final cardio workout lasting 40 minutes. Beginners may wish to start with the KB Elements portion of the workout DVD to better understand how kettle bells are used for cardio and muscular fitness. After the follower gains some control over the kettle bell, they can move on to the other workouts for optimal fitness.
Reviews on the official Gaiam website suggest the workout is slightly more intense than many dieters expected. Several followers suggest sticking with the first 20 minute workout for a few weeks before progressing to the next workout. Using kettle bells engages muscles not typically used during cardio exercise, so even the dieter who works out several days a week will feel the burn. It is important to warm up and cool down when following a Kettlenetics program.
There is a weight loss guide included with the Kettlenetics program, so dieters can expect a reduced calorie diet to help improve weight loss success. There are no details on the diet plan included with Gaiam Kettlenetics Slim and Tone Kit. No supplements or fat burners are mentioned on the official website or in the DVD description. We suggest healthy dieters take supplements to boost weight loss and metabolism. When paired with diet and exercise, proven ingredients can help a dieter lose more weight in less time.
