A while back while I was on my trip I was sent a nice, big HEAVY box that fiance was nice enough to pick up for me. He was very confused as to what could be so heavy!
I was pleasantly surprised to open the box to find a Kettle ball and a bunch of KettleWorx DVD’s!
The lovely people at KettleWorX wanted me to try out their new programs, so they sent me 10 DVD’s and a 10 pound kettle bell! I had my work cut out for me!
I received this package not even a month ago and I have done a bunch of the workouts so far. The DVD’s have 24 unique workouts and over 6 hours of personal training.
This was my first time using a kettle bell. My only experience with one was watching the contestants on the Biggest Loser use them! So at first I didn’t really know what I was doing, but after a few tries I got the hang of it!
Fiancé got some good action shots of me working it out!
The program has a wide variety of exercises and movements with the kettle bell. Some are a lot harder than others! I really like the KettleWorX program because it is a great alternative to combining strength training and getting in some cardio at the same time. It was super easy to do at home when I didn’t have much time to work up a sweat!
With my 2 half marathon races planned for next month I have really been making an effort to increase my strength training, and this has been a great way for me to work on building up some muscle.
I have been working out muscles that haven’t been worked out in a while, and I have been feeling the pain after. You know that good soreness the next morning after a killer workout? I love that feeling!
My favorite programs so far have been: Core, Cardio, Legs & Thighs and Fast Abs! It’s a whole new workout with a 10 pound kettlebell in your life!
I also really liked this program because I found there to be a wide variety of exercises. Some I had done before but need to incorporate in my workout plans more often, and others were tough for me and I need to work at improving my stance. I love a challenge!
The KettleWorX program proclaims “Total Body Fitness in just 20 minutes, 3 times a week.” The program states this because it believes you are simultaneously working multiple sets of muscles at any given time during the variety of exercises.
Since you all know my love affair with running, I am not sure I could only do this workout and have it be enough for me, but I love to come back from a run and do a kettle bell workout! Its a nice incorporation into my exercise routine – and the 10 pound kettle bell has been perfect for me.
After a while I switched to a 12 pound weight!
Just kidding! But during the photo shoot, Jackson decided he wanted to get in on the fun, so we had to get a few pics with him!
All in all I really like this program. It’s very different from any other home exercise DVD I own, and I love the resistance with the kettle bell! There are also so many DVDs with a ton of different exercises! It’s nice to change things up a bit!
The wonderful people at KettleWorX have offered to give an And Her Little Dog Too Reader an “Ultra Package” with either the 5 or 10 lb kettlebell based on what weight is best for the winner.
Side Note: Jackson NOT included 🙂
This package includes: KettleWorx Ultra starts with the "Six Week Body Transformation" – an easy, step-by-step program that guides you through six weeks of personal training. 4 DVDs: Intro, Cardio, Core, Resistance.

- A 5 or 10-pound kettlebell – KettleWorx Premium Kettlebell

Ohh first comment, we'll see if that's lucky or not!! I have been looking at kettlebells for awhile, but not yet tried them. It seems like a great workout
Since I have gotten to be quite a bit overweight over the years, and living in Maine I am not physically active very much in the winter months, this program would be a really neat way to get me motivated to start thinking healthy again!

I've been interested in the kettle balls ever since biggest loser incorporated them into the workouts, however they are so expensive!!
I follow you on google reader 🙂
I want this because my pup squirms too much to use as a dumbell, or in this case a kettleball.
JK! All jokes aside, I've recently began doing a little bit of cardio and I'd like to concentrate a little more on my core.
And I follow your blog!! =]

I have yet to experience life with kettleballs, but always am interested with them when I see them being used. It surely would be a nice thing to have around the casa for days when an "in home workout" is the only way to get the workout ON!!!!!!!!!!!!
i would love it so i can fit in with my weightlifter brother and his 50lb kettlebell!!
I have wanted to try kettlebells for quite some time and have never had the opportunity. I think it would be great to be able to do some kettlebell workouts after running. Once I am finished with my run, I don't feel like going to the gym to do weights, but if I had the stuff at home…
I follow you on google reader.
I'd like to try KettleWorX because I need to get back into shape and if it works for the "biggest losers," it can work for me. Thanks for the chance to win! asthenight at gmail dot com
This is awesome! I have been looking for a good workout DVD that will give me more than just cardio! I need to build my muscles! And I don't have my 12 pound weights here with me, so that kettle bell might have to suffice! 😉

You're on my blogroll!
I have been trying to increase the intensity of my weight workouts to complement my running. I feel like I have been doing the same workout and no longer seeing the results. Now that I am in my 40's I need to work on preventing muscle atrophy.
I would use this to get in shape for the upcoming lacrosse season, as well as my wedding in June! What a fun way to stay in shape especially with all this snow! I often neglect the weights in the winter and just run so this would be a nice addition to the workout schedule! Love it!
I would love to win this because I'm always looking for new ways to get my workout in. Of course, anything I can do from home is awesome because I don't have to worry about a babysitter.

I would love to try this, because it's got a ton of different workouts. I'm currently doing Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred, and when that is over in 15 days, I'm going to need something new to keep going! I need an at-home workout, because I can't afford the gym! 🙂

i would loooove to win this giveaway! I live in Philly too and am a newbie runner looking to up her strength training. I need something I can do at home since I work two jobs and dont always have time to get to the gym for some strength training!
I would like to try them because I've heard a lot about them, and I'm never actually used them. Even though I love strength training!
Jackson is soooo cute!! I need this because I walk at least a mile a day and I'm not over weight–but I'm not in shape either–and lately the weather has not allowed me to take my walks–and I need a program to help me shape & tone–I have the energy and the commitment–what I'm doing just isn't giving me the desired results.
