Love them, and as another poster said, they are good for both cardio and resistance training.
You get a lot of bang for your buck, in that they really do scorch a lot of calories in a short amount of time.
Really give me a buzz.

I've been contemplating them.... I need to tighten up floppy arms, and need some variety to keep going.

Just starting out. Will start the 12-week program by Greg at Kettlebell Workouts (https://kettlebellsworkouts.com/fat-loss-kettlebell-program/).

Last year I took a kettlebell class that was "open to people of all fitness levels," which meant, "Yeah, you can come and you can try and we will crush you." The instructor gave me and my friend "modified" moves, but clearly didn't realize we were starting out. Couldn't walk for two days. Was too intimidated to try again, until now. I watched a lot of videos from kettlebellsworkouts.com, and he really explains things thoroughly with very helpful videos, so I'm to try it again and use my kettlebell for something other than pressing tofu (which it is really quite good at--just put your tofu in a colander, cover with a plate, place kettlebell on top [wrap tofu in a tea towel if you want it to retain perfect shape]).

The antiChrist of workout equipment :-) Short workout, three exercises three sets of 12 and the next day I couldn't walk.

I love 'em!

I've always enjoyed kettle bell workouts, and have gotten good results. I like that you can get both resistance AND cardio swinging a kettle bell - it is a good all over workout. I have the Kettleworx DVDs which give me a routine to follow. Some of the moves are out of my range (like lunges, which don't work with my arthritic middle-aged knees) but otherwise I can keep up pretty well.

Great tools! Versatile and durable and safe - what more can you ask for? The only down-side is since the weight cannot be adjusted (at least on most kettlebell styles) you need to buy a variety of weights or the increments in weight might be way too easy or way too hard, but if you find a suitable "workaround" for this problem it's no big deal really.

Let me just say kettlebells are an all around workout tool. You can do so much with it and I felt like I had run 3-4 miles today after only a 26 min workout. Still feeling it now! Sore as can be, foam rolled it out and had my amino acids.
