    K so after reading some threads on here about people doing these workouts, I've decided to buy the kettleworx set. I sm basically just doing walking as my exercise so this will be a nice addition to get me toned up. Just wanted to let anyone know that was thinking of getting these, I shopped around and found what I thought was a good deal through ideal world ( u know the tv shows that sell stuff like qvc) well online with them they had the six week program, so 4 discs (cardio, resistance, core and intro, plus a free food plan ( I'll stick to what I'm doing though) and a 5lb kettlebell for £35 + £6 postage. Quite a good price as elsewhere they seem alot more expensive

    Still waiting for them to arrive! Argh! Can't wait to start as I've been reading a thread on minimins called "the secret to shaping up" started by a lady called kron who's gone from a size 16 to a 6, only using kettlebells! And there are quite a few others on there with fab results too! So I can't wait for them to arrive

    I've been thinking of this too - reading the same thread haha! It is very inspiring - I'm a size 16 now, would only dream of being a size 6! (Although I am 5"11 so a size 6 would probably look pretty terrifying!)

    How have you found it? It looks so complicated! They've got 2.5kg, 5kg & 7kg bells on argos for £19.99 so I was thinking maybe going for that...what do you think?

    I have this strange feeling in my head that intense 'firming' exercises like that will 'firm' my fat into solid and I'll never get it off - excuses excuses eh? (I understand this is a ridiculous concept :D)

    Haha that made me laugh :rolleyes:, i've only done one workout online so far and it killed the next day (but in the good sense coz i felt like i'd done something).
    Basically if you have some muscle even when your not exercising your body uses more energy so its a win win situation. I've been looking for some kettlebells too, from what i can work out from the other thread the vinyl ones can be very bulky so can make some of the exercises trickier, i got a 5lb off ebay for 5.99 and £2 postage, it does seem a bit light though, but ideal for arm work (i've seriously weak arms!).
    I'd never be a size 6, my bones are massive!!! smallest i've ever been is a 10 which i'd be more than happy with, seems a long way off though after two kiddies :family2:

    Let me know how you get on, and check out some youtube vids thats what i'm doing before i invest loads of money
