10/10 Can I give this a rating of 20 out of 10???
 
By Cricket Deane ( aka rkb beginner) / Knoxville, TN USA

Dear Andrea, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am a special population!
I just finished watching both dvds of Working with Special Populations and I am stunned at the amount of high quality information packed into 2 dvds. I got my first kettlebells about 5 years ago and I have just been piddling around with them. I have lost 50 pounds in the process, but I am not satisfied with my fitness level. I am now a 60 year old female, prone to lower back injury, and very timid in my approach to training.
I love From Russia with Tough Love and the Goddess dvds, but most of the moves are too advanced for me. You have presented me with the tools to build my foundation. I think the zhealth stretching and the series of small lifts to open the shoulders are fantastic. I am completely energized now to start hard - but safe - training.
Yours truly, Cricket Deane

 
8/10 May not be for the 'hard-core'; but then again...
 
By EGA / Worcester, MA

Perhaps not for the ?hard-core muscled-up' client, this DVD is a taping of a workshop expertly taught by Andrea Du Cane. The focus is fitness and ?special populations?.

It is clear from the presentation and drills that Andrea?s background in Pilates, movement, and mind-body fitness takes center stage. Her focus is not on the physically fit, but on the ?typical unfit client? coming from the general population. This would range from the older exerciser (fit) but interested in transitioning to kettlebell training, all the way to your typical couch potato who hasn?t seen his toes in years (but longs to)!

For fitness professionals (RKC and others), personal trainers, physical therapists, and the like, this presentation will teach you how to work with ?special populations?; using the kettlebell as tool for fitness. Andrea?s basic kettlebell drills can ?kill you with kindness? and its clear that even with an audience of well conditioned kettlebell enthusiasts those simple drills can be challenging.

Looking through the audience it is not hard to spot Pavel lurking on the periphery offering encouragement and an adjustment here and there as the class performs the exercises.

The two (2) DVD set contains a lot of information not only from fitness professionals but also for the clients who will seek them out. If you are older or considering transitioning from ?soft-style? exercise, or have simply been away from exercise and body awareness, then there is something here for you.

Plus as an aside Andrea and her lovely assistant are far easier on the eyes then Pavel ;
)

Again, not for everybody, but for anybody who is interested in an approach to fitness (using the kettlebell); that will take you from where you are to where you want to be?

 
9/10 Simple
 
By Peter Nurman / Phoenix, United States

Great 2 disk DVD. The information is nice and simple. Working with those who have limited mobility shouldn't be complicated and the information presented keeps it that way as well as allowing for progression which is good.

As a personal trainer and HKC instructor, I'll be using these methods so they can gain better conditioning.
