Tracy Reifkind has a message for exercise-phobes and fitness trendsetters alike: The kettlebell swing is the ultimate equalizer! Men and women, athletes and couch potatoes, the physically fit and the overweight - anyone can pick up a kettlebell, and in as few as four sessions, it will begin to transform lives. That's what she did, and it catapulted her to a healthy new life and a radically different relationship to fitness. Now Reifkind is bringing this powerful workout - popular among elite athletes, but accessible enough for a fitness novice - to its widest audience yet. Her program focuses on the simplest of the kettlebell movements, the swing, to create a workout that makes the body leaner and more muscular at the same time. As it swings, the kettlebell creates force that demands full-body involvement and constantly engages the core - all with very little impact on the joints. Overweight most of her life, Reifkind had tried every treadmill, stepper, elliptical, and trendy workout on the market. But it wasn't until she picked up a kettlebell that, as she puts it, her "real body" began breaking through-120 pounds later, Reifkind starting teaching others her unique approach, offering her program in classes and quickly converting others to this easy-to-follow, power-packed fitness regimen. Reifkind's program promises dramatic results in just two half-hour sessions each week (that's just four hours a month!). Along with strong coaching on developing a winning mindset, and her protein-focused, transformational eating plan, she truly inspires and leads readers at any stage of life to let their real bodies break through.
