It's not a DVD, but I got Lauren Brookes' book Kettlebells For Women, and I love it! In the front she talks about how she got into kettlebells, and the benefits, and in the back she has detailed instructions on how to do everything, in the middle she had 3 sets of 4 week workouts, starting with very basic and progressing from there. I've started at the beginning (even though I've taken a few kb classes), and am just starting week 3 now. I really feel like I'm learning a lot, and getting my form down. I will use DVDs in the future, but this is great for starting out and building up strength. I don't think it was that expensive either (I got it from Amazon), not like her DVDs!

It's FREE and you'll get hundreds of workouts, all kettlebells. Alysia is RKC. You must register to get access but they won't spam you. There are support forums but you don't have to use them. There's a nutrition plan but you don't have to use it.
If you choose to use all of it, though, it's free and they're lovely people! I found them from SP and there are some sparkers over there, too.
Sarah Lurie (IronCore Series) is good if you don't want to invest a ton of money. Her dvd's are very reasonable. Lauren Brooks is good....but pricey. Andrea DuCane as mentioned. ArtofStrength has a lot of workout dvd's and downloads.
This looks very interesting as far as instruction goes...... http://www.nofearfitness.com/products/ke ttlebell-foundation-dvd.php
I think I researched her in the past and she does workshops with Mike Mahler so she should be good.
AverageToElite has some great kettlebell correction videos on youtube and I think offers dvd's at their website. (averagetoelite.com)

Currently swinging either a single 55 lb. or two 25 lb'ers.
We have TONS of opinions here on every topic! Some from very expert and knowledgeable kettle bell devotees.
I'm not one of the experts, but for basics, I think you're looking for Enter the Kettlebell by Pavel Tsatsouline. He's the MAN! Also from Dragon Door is Andea DuCane. You might also want to visit you tube and check out Lauren Brooks and Steve Cotter, two of my favorites.

I'm newish to kettlebells. I bought the 10lb Danskin last year and started doing the DVD it came with: Gin Miller. *cringing* Yes, yes, I KNOW. I've read enough of the reviews around here to know she's not on the approved list! Still, I've been enjoying the feeling of strength I've had but want to get serious about form and see what I've been missing out on by doing a REAL workout with a RKC instructor. I bought a 15lb and a 20lb and now want to get a DVD that will teach me the basics. (There is no place remotely local that has a class.) My husband has never picked up a kettlebell but is interested in doing the workouts too. He's had physical issues at various times with his back, shoulder, ankles and feet so I want to make sure that the DVD I get is very good about teaching proper form and alignment. I also would like the DVD to appeal to the both of us. I don't mind working out with a guy but he would much prefer a male instructor to a female. I've been looking at The Kettlebell Way To Your Perfect Body Volume 1 DVD by Anthony Diluglio but I'm open to other ideas, too. In fact, which top two DVD's would you recommend that would be great for a beginner, a semi beginner and both male and female?
