Kettlebells the Iron Core Way
Kettlebells the Iron Core Way Volume One teaches you foundation kettlebell exercises, like the swing, clean, press, front squat, Turkish get up and more. Volume One also takes you through a 45 minute Iron Core class circuit that is guaranteed to burn fat and remove that unwanted flab!
The Iron Core kettlebell fitness program is designed to increase strength, improve balance, enhance flexibility and burn fat through total-body movements that incorporate both weight training and cardiovascular exercises. Foundation exercises like the swing, clean, and press engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously, resulting in an overall strengthening of the body as opposed to isolating muscles groups typical of traditional weightlifting.
“Watching my clients embrace the kettlebell program and seeing how it changes not only their bodies, but their entire lives, is a huge reward”, says Sarah Lurie, owner of Iron Core Kettlebell Fitness Studios in La Jolla, California.
Many of Lurie’s clients at Iron Core have experienced dramatic body transformations, losing significant pounds and inches. After working out with kettlebells for just eight months, one female Iron Core client has completely recreated her body, losing over 30 inches to date. In just six months, one of Lurie’s male clients has lost over 14 pounds of fat, added five pounds of muscle and dropped two pant sizes. Others have achieved their desired results in as little as 8 weeks.
These dramatic transformations and her experience with clients with all different fitness levels prompted her to create Kettlebells: The Iron Core Way. This DVD series was designed to introduce a more approachable version of the kettlebell workout program, for those who might be intimidated by the more hard -core aspect of kettlebell training. The availability of the Iron Core DVDs provides newcomers with instructional lessons and challenging workout programs they can do at home if they are not able to attend classes or private sessions at Iron Core. “It is the next best thing to having a training session with me”, stated Lurie.
Kettlebells: The Iron Core Way is currently available in two DVD volumes. Volume I teaches newcomers foundation kettlebell exercises like the swing, clean and press, 1-legged dead lift, front squat and one arm row while Volume II instructs individuals on more advanced foundation kettlebell exercises like the snatch, tactical lunge and deck squat. Both volumes include a 45-minute follow along workout circuit that combines all the demonstrated exercises into a cohesive and efficient fat burning training session. In addition, the DVD’s guide viewers through a warm-up, cool-down and abdominal circuit.
Praise for Kettlebells The Iron Core Way:
“My workout partner, Dotti, and I love your DVDs. The explanation of the exercises is clear and easy to follow. The workouts, especially on the second DVD are GREAT! We now have her 19 -year old son hooked on the workouts!” —Debra B.
“Sarah — I got the video. It is great!!!! You have to make more videos. I love the format. I did the work out and think it is perfect for people starting out. It explains all the exercises in a great way. I love the way you did an instructional section and then gave the workout circuit to follow along to. I was just blown away. I could not believe the quality of the video. It was incredible.” —Simi B.
“I think you did an excellent job in producing a product that has practical applications for everyday use. A vast majority of the other Kettlebell videos on the market show you how to use a Kettlebell but neglect to provide a program in applying the principles of usage towards overall fitness and conditioning. Most novice fitness enthusiasts are unsure as to how to design a program to meet their specific needs. The follow-along workouts you created are a great tool for both novice and experienced Kettlebell lifters as well as individuals who are in need of a program to improve overall fitness. Having been away from Kettlebells for nearly two years due to an injury, I plan on using your workouts to get back in the game. Kudos on a job well done”—Clement R.
“Pretty and Amazing! My husband and I watched the DVDs. He is super critical. He was impressed with the graphics and pacing. I was impressed with the instruction and the fact that I didn’t lose interest. The circuit is perfectly timed for a beginner or someone like me who has been off for a couple of weeks. Incredible!” —Lynn S.
