"This video really breaks down how to do the kettlebell movements, and explains why you're doing it. [Mahler] also gives a lot of modifications. Kettlebells are so intense, and not everybody can even start out with one -- some people might have to use their body weight. Once you get that down, you can progress to using the kettlebells. Kettlebells are the hot thing right now, but using them does take a lot of conditioning. What's great about the DVD is that it explains step by step how to get proper alignment." Sara Willis, Personal trainer, Joe's Gym, Los Angeles

"Just have to say EXCELLENT DVD. I've been using kettlebells for a few years now but the breakdown you did on the exercises really helped improve my form just on the first workout. The point about how to properly rack the bells and not kill your forearms was so simple. I would instinctively do it on single arm kettlebell exercises but failed to do it on double bell exercises and couldn't figure out what I was doing differently. Again, excellent DVD. I'll have to watch it a few more times to really catch all the details."--Alex Bailey

"For anyone interested in learning perfect form this DVD is awesome. I have only previewed maybe half of it. Of special interest was learning how to avoid the kb from banging against the forearm/wrist area. Proper breathing techniques, proper placement of the handle in one's hand, and the importance of the when, how and why on tensing the muscles. The actual setting seems to be a workshop being conducted and thus taped. Mike Mahler's style is casual and it shows even in his clothes. He is wearing a t-shirt and cargo pants, no workout wear here. There is no music and he does make occasional intermittent comments to the men about using sissy weights and other less than flattering comments about women were lifting is concerned. Nothing overtly offensive but I guess it depends on one's sensitivity level. All in all the instruction is very detailed in every phase of the swings, lifts etc. Tremendous benefit to a beginner and even those who have been doing it awhile and need pointers to avoid injuries, improve form and increase strength."--Booboo39 from the forum at www.thecathenation.com

"I’ve just finished watching the ‘beginner kettlebell training workshop’. I really enjoyed it and look forward to putting some of the techniques into practice. I particularly liked the information in relation to the cleans and snatches as my forearms have been pretty bashed up. I had been using the high pull transition for snatches and the punch through but seeing them broken down really hit the technique points home. I will have to work on the corkscrew return to the bottom with the snatch though. I have been letting it fall straight down and as you alluded to it doesn’t feel that controlled.

Your suggestion with the renegade rows was the most useful however as I have different size bells and the balance issue had arisen so I look forward to incorporating the exercise into my routine now in a safer manner.

Thank you for a great DVD and I have no regrets with my purchase, something which I have not been able to say on a regular basis with my strength related resources in the past."--Neil Scothern

I know that you are going to benefit tremendously from this DVD. If you have already been to one of my Level 1 Beginner Kettlebell Workshops then it is a great reinforcement tool. If you have never been to one of my workshop it is the ultimate gateway DVD for all kettlebell training beginners. If you are brand spanking new to kettlebell training or are just getting started, then this is the perfect kettlebell training DVD for you. This DVD is six years in the marking as I have been doing kettlebell workshops since early 2002 and now I finally have all of that experience on a kettlebell DVD for your benefit.

Here is what people are saying about my Beginner kettlebell training workshops and why this DVD is a must have.

"Thanks for the incredible workshop on Saturday. It was a pleasure to meet and work with you. I had a blast and was sore for days! I learned a lot about how to maximize my leverage points and generate body tension to lift the heavier kettlebells with greater efficiency. I never thought I'd go from using a 25lb to a 50lb kettlebell! Thanks to you I'm going to be getting myself some heavier bells and live life more aggressively. I'm hooked and look forward to doing your Level 2 workshop in the near future."--Estella H

"Thanks again for your class. It was Money well spent. You taught a wealth of insightful information in a way that most professional teachers, I think, would envy. Clear, patient, concise, and with humor (an essential and often overlooked quality). Never condescending. I was sore the next day, in an area I didn't expect to be the legs) but it was a good sore. Anyway its obvious to see that you enjoy what you do, much continued success! If its at all possible let me know if you are going to teach an intermediate class any time soon in the Vegas area - would love to get to the next level."--Adam Gregory

"I was convinced of the value of Mike's workshop. I had wondered previously about its value since I had already learned a lot from videos. But now there was no doubt: some of these things you just need to learn in person. And with exercises I had learned before, the reinforcement of proper form in all its subtleties was worth the time and money. One of the important differences between videos and the workshop is how Mike would build up to an exercise. With the military press, for example, he started by teaching a deadlift, then a clean, then doing a tension exercise, then power breathing, then finally the press. The tension exercise was great: he had us hold a heavier bell than we were used to in the clean position. I was used to a 35lb bell, but now I had an 88lb bell cleaned. Holy cow, it took my whole body just to hold the thing there for 10 seconds! But generating whole body tension was exactly the point. That's the kind of thing you can't get from watching a video."
- Josh Carter, Denver, CO

"Thanks so much for the workshop on Saturday - it was one of the best things I've paid money to attend in my whole life, and it was worth way more than $300. you are EXCELLENT. I feel very inspired! next time I attend, I will leave my 3kg baby rattle at home. while I may not be quite ready to Live Life Aggressively, I am certainly not as much of a sissy as I was last week. thank you."
- Alysia Nolan, Los Angeles, CA

"Thanks very much for the top notch instruction you gave. I have been worried ever since I left the Marine Corps that I was going to struggle to remain aggressively active and fit in the civilian world. You definitely showed me the power of KB training and healthier living."--Phil Downs

"OK, Ladies listen up; I am relatively new to kettlebell training. I attended Mike and Dylan’s professional Kettlebell workshop in Northern VA. Mike and Dylan are truly experts in the science of kettlebell training. Mike’s lecture on nutrition, physiology and anatomy was impeccably accurate. Dylan is excellent in his innate ability to make you focus and perform. I felt completely comfortable and part of the team during the instruction and execution of the exercises. I learned how important it is to use the right kettlebell weight and essential tweaks on my lifting. Watching Mike demonstrate his exemplary strength was amazing and inspiring. For those of you contemplating attending, do it, your mind, body and soul will be grateful. I feel calm, strong and energized. I am a fan. P.S. I personally would like to see some shirtless photos on the website. :-)"
- Carrie Pascoe, Woodbridge, VA

"This was my second KB workshop with Mike Mahler and even though I am no longer a rookie when it comes to KB training, there is always something new to learn. I am always amazed at the many different types of fitness enthusiasts who attend his seminars. From World Champion powerlifters like myself, to runners and weekend warriors, Mike makes sure the workshop caters to all levels of fitness. His energy and sense of humor make the 8 hours pass all too soon. I was truly exhausted by the end of the day and pleasantly sore in a way that regular gym workouts cannot afford me. It will be an experience you will not soon forget."
- Ellen Stein, 6 time IPF Masters World Champion Powerlifter, certified personal trainer (ACE, NASM, NSCA)

"I would also like to take you for your videos and workshops. I started with the bells about 18 months ago. I started swinging a 35. now after following you I am swinging double 70s. pressing 1 35 to 2 70s for 5 sets of 8."--Dr. Brian Lattimer, West Virginia

Exercises That Are Covered On The Beginner Kettlebell Workshop DVD

  • Swings: Two-arm and One-arm Swing: This is were it all starts for developing rapid hip flexors and for accelerating fat loss. It is not as simple as it looks. Learn the best way to do swings at the workshop and how to avoid getting a sore lower back.
  • Cleans: One-arm and Double Clean: Are you banging up your wrists. You should not be even with the heaviest kettlebells. Without a perfect clean, forget about doing presses with confidence. It all starts here. Why you should open your hand and wrap your hand around the kettlebell rather than letting the kettlebell flip over and bang up your forearms.
  • One arm snatch: Again, are you banging up your wrists? If you are, sign up right now or get good medical insurance. If you are banging up your wrists then you have no idea what you are doing and are wasting your time with snatches. You will be amazed at how good snatches feel when executed properly. No pun intended.
  • Presses One-arm Military Press, One-arm Clean and Press, Double Military Press, Double Clean and Press, See-saw Press, and Floor Press: Many years ago the Military Press was the mark of upper body strength. Now people are lazy and like to lie down when doing presses. Learn why the military press is a half full body demonstration of tension and half relaxation and shock absorption. Learn why lat activation is critical for an important press. Learn why you should press two kettlebells like a barbell and lower two kettlebells like you would if you were doing push presses or jerks. You will be shocked at what a difference this makes.
  • Bent Press: This is an incredible exercise for building up the lats for pressing. Learn why it is a" hold" more than it is a press. You will learn to focus on pushing your body away from the bell rather than pressing the bell away from you.
  • Side Press: This is a hybrid of the military press and windmill. Both moves have to happen at the same time to make this one happen. Superb drill for working the shoulder, lats, and core all in one movement.
  • Rows: One-arm Bent-over Row, Double Bent-over Row, Renegade Row: If you are not doing any bent-over rowing, then you are building an imbalanced body and can expect to have some nice shoulder injuries and shoulders that hunch forward. Learn how to do rows correctly to build a balanced powerful upper body. Learn how to hook your hand around the bell for maximum pulling power. You will be shocked what a tremendous difference this makes.
  • Windmill: This is an exceptional exercise for building shoulder stability, core strength, and solid obliques. It is also an incredible for building flexibility in the shoulders and lower body. Done correctly, this exercise is safe and effective. Done incorrectly, it is a sure-fire way to get injured badly! Learn how to do it right before it is too late.
  • Turkish Get-up: Forget about crunches and doing sit-ups all day long. Work your body as one unit and build a rock solid midsection. Learn the pattern of motion to make TGU' seamless and productive.
  • Kettlebell Arm Bar: Great drill for shoulder flexibility, core strength, and to crack your back in the best way possible!
  • Leg Work: One-arm Front Squat, Double Front Squat, Suitcase Squat, Suitcase Kickstand Lunge: Learn the front squat that has tremendous carry over to sports and the hack squat that works the calves and glutes with one kettlebell behind your back. You will be amazed by how heavy one kettlebell feels in this position. What is great about various kettlebell squats is that they do not place any strain on the lower back, Moreover, if you get in trouble you can simply let go of the weight. No spotters or squat racks are required. For variety or as staples in your program focus on the kickstand Lunge to work one leg at a time. It is not a technically demanding drill and you can get it into your program from day one.
  • Other Exercises that are covered: high pull, medium pull, push press, Romanian deadlfit, Janda Sit-up, Hindu Pushup, Hindu Squat, and more

"Mike Mahler is an expert in the challenging field of sports conditioning. His unique and innovate teaching tactics guarantee high retention of these one of kind workouts. His extensive knowledge feeds a powerful passion to explore the human body with safety and strength. If you get a chance to train with him; do so or regret it."
- Frank Shamrock, Five Time UFC Middleweight Champion

"You are an incredible instructor. As a corporate trainer, I understand the energy it takes to manage, teach, and motivate a group. You really excel at breaking down even the most technical exercise into the appropriate steps . The progression allows everyone to be successful. It is clear you love what you are doing and have fun doing it...which translates into everyone else having fun."
- Barbara McDuffie

"Hey Mike, You're seminar was so awesome. I am writing this a few days after and am still so sore, I was having so much fun, I didn't realize how hard we were working. Thanks for answering my hundreds of questions, I really like all your ideas of not only exercise but overall health. I can't believe how fast the four hour seminar flew by. You rock!"
- Chris Pontius, Star of MTV's "Jackass" and "Wildboyz"

"I have been around and trained with athletes of all disciplines: martial artists, mountaineers, powerlifters, bodybuilders, college athletes, cyclists, rock climbers, alpinists, footballers, basketballers, etc....Mike stands out more than anyone I have ever had the chance to train with. He has an uncanny ability to break down each lift into segments, focus on them, make sure you master them, then apply them to the whole. He does this with incredible detail and most importantly, patience. I am in no way affiliated with Mike or Dragondoor, so believe me.....I would have paid double if I had to for his workshop. Best six hours of training I've had, period. My snatch is now smooth enough to pass the snatch test for my weight class at the RKC. I was coming up short before, but after Mike, the snatch seems like a whole new lift. In regards to Mike being second to Pavel....I used to be of that mindset but now I question it. I think once you achieve the level of fitness Mike has, none is your better. You just have many equals and countless lesser."
- Steve Meidinger, Denver, CO

"Before attending your workshop, on the Military Press I was able to press the 32kg around 3-4 times on each arm. I just tried it yesterday and cranked out 7 reps with 1-2 left to spare…. I feel the class gave me the extra help with technique that I needed to pull the lat into it more. SWEET!"
- Dustin Silveri, Reno, NV

"I just wanted to say hello and thank you after attending my first kettlebell seminar in NYC this past weekend. My mind was truly blown away (not to mention my ENTIRE body)!! You are a powerhouse of knowledge and a wonderful motivator. Going back to my gym today was tough - all I could think about was how much I want to learn to master the kettlebell exercises and dump traditional weightlifting. Thanks for opening my eyes and helping me discover a way out of my boring training routine. Look forward to another seminar! Thanks again!"
- Julie Nuzzo, NYC

"Thanks to your coaching on lifting heavy kettlebells, I am finally able to snatch an 88lb KB! Several points on technique I learned at your Level 1 Kettlebell Seminar in Miami last made the difference."
- Frank DiMeo CrossFit Gulf Coast

"Thanks for the great seminar. Quinton and I learned a lot and now better understand the fundamentals that will propel us to success. I am finding it hard to walk today :) I hope our beginner status didn't slow things down too much. Next time I see you I'll show off my deep squat! I believe that this class and the system taught is the most fundamentally sound program I have ever seen. Quinton said if he would have known about this 4 years ago he would have been State champ rather than just the league champ in wrestling."
- Kib Pearson

"Mike is an incredible teacher with his own unique way of simplifying the moves. He breaks down each and every move piece by piece putting them together as if you were building blocks. This in turn simplifies the moves and when he finally has you execute the lift it comes together like magic with more precision and perfection. I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 30 years, starting as a competitive bodybuilder and in all these years I have not seen such an amazing yet simple teaching techniques. As a martial arts instructor I can say that Mike has an incredible progressive teaching method that I’ve only seen in elite martial arts masters. When I shared this with Mike he told me that he saw kettlebells training like martial arts training. If you can not get to one of his workshops do get his DVD’s. I just got and strongly recommend “Kettlebell Solution for Size and Strength.” Mike Mahler is a true Kettlebell Master. He is destined to become a Fitness Superstar in the very near future."
- Julio Anta, Owner of Anta's Fitness And Self Defense

"You are an excellent motivator and a wealth of great information! You deserve every bit of good fortune and than some, that comes your way! You opened a new door for me that desperately needed an opening. I'm really sick and tired of traditional weight training and all the pompous uninformative trainers that come along with it. They are all show muscle, and are more interested in taking people's hard earned money and BS-ing with their friends and potential prospects during client time. It was cool to see NYC's legendary Harley Flanagan get put through your routines too. I think he was even more surprised to find out I was a fan as well and played the Cromags back in the day when I was a Metal/ Hardcore DJ in NJ… Olli's sure I will be emailing you again soon with some more questions and I will be one of your future on-line clients. Thanks again for an awesome day & hurry back to NYC bro!!"
- Tim Koenig , NYC

"Thanks again for a great seminar - it was an excellent opportunity to learn how to do the basics the right way! Seriously, I had a great time. You're an excellent instructor - not many people can make six hours of working out/learning that much fun. The time really flew by, so that's a good endorsement for your ability to keep it fresh."
- Laurie Dann, Miami, FL

"Mike, I wanted to let you know that I was thoroughly impressed with your seminar that you held in Arvada, CO. last week. Your skills at teaching and instructing are nothing less than expert. I have been "playing around" with KB's for about a year, and I am always self conscious about my form. I thought that I had my techniques practiced and learned properly. Your seminar helped to correct my form in the clean, the Turkish Get-Up(TGU), windmill, military press, and the bent press. Again, your expert instruction and demonstration of the most technical bends/grinds saved me from my poor bent press form. The way you throw around the bulldogs is inspiring."
- Thomas Buhl, Denver, CO

"Please come back to DC. We'd like to attend another workshop from you. Amazingly enough, my entire body is sore, but not my lower back. The first time I was trained with someone else, I had a sore back. I just love the way you trained us. It's phenomenal!"
- Mya Thida

"I really enjoyed your workshop. I feel I got my monies worth still sore). I learned a lot at your workshop. I will say that being directly in front of you the majority of the time had a tremendous effect on my focus. My learning how not to have the KBs bang my wrist when I do Cleans was worth the price of admission all by itself and the rest was icing on the cake. The 6 hours went by too fast for me. There was so much more I would like to have learned from you. Your generosity and approach-ability are rare qualities. I believe if you nurture those qualities about yourself you will continue to be successful. Unselfish behavior is a rare thing in the business world; especially when it pertains to fitness. Allowing me to take a DVD trusting I would PayPal for it later was a shock. I expected to hear "Sorry, I just can't do that." So Thank You again."
- James Day, Lenexa, Kansas

“That was the best seminar I've been to. Good job. Also, your DVD is really hot. The setting is perfect and that first move drew me in capturing my attention. I look forward to reading more of your articles and experiencing your training. I will definitely be attending another seminar.”
- Mike Tornabane

"Thanks so much for coming to Denver. I learned a lot about certain exercises. I've been working on the double military press. GTG. Before the seminar I could only budge the 70's. Now I am doing like three sets of two each day. Your totally awesome."
- Thomas Kitchen, Denver, CO

"You tha man!! That sh*t was awesome!!! F**kin A right on!!! ha ha ha yo that sh*t was sick i was sore for like two days! You run the seminar drill sergeant style! I loved it and I gotta get real strong and get that sh*t down and do a guest spot on your next DVD."
- Harley Flanagan of the band "Harley's War" and founder of the NYC Hardcore Band "The Cro-Mags"

"Hey Mike, thank you for the excellent seminar. it was really great to meet you and learn the kb's from you. You really do a great job on all points, you know the material really well, you kept us moving (my friggin butt is still sore..haha) and you got the good personality to go with it...I see why your successful at the seminars. I really appreciated the detailed feedback too as it made a big difference for me."
- Jon Hinds of Lifeline USA

"Mike, I just wanted to say that your seminar was beyond advertised, and I feel very confident in attending the RKC certification in April. The corrections you made in my snatch not only allowed me to complete the 72 snatches with the 53lb kettlebell, but when I got home I was able to do 60 snatches with the 72lb kettlebell feeling stronger than ever with the exercise. The strength routines you suggested ie. 3x3 and 5x5 with multi-joint exercises take me 30-40 minutes and the results are 10x what I ever got weightlifting. Strength coaches do not usually deliver more than offered, but you are obviously an exception when it comes to professionalism and teaching. Looking forward to having you come back to NYC for a level 2 seminar."
- Marc Simione NSCA-CPT, Strength Coach

"Firstly, Mike you are truly INSANE when it comes to KB training and your seminar...AWESOME! Well worth its weight in gold. I learned alot more than just proper form and technique, I learned preparation, focus and attention to detail and all the other nuances that go along with kettlebell training. The soreness and body ache are a testament to everything taught at the seminar. I strongly urge anyone who is procrastinating or delaying to register RIGHT NOW. Secondly, I'd like to thank you Mike and Dillon wholeheartedly for the inspiration and motivation you have given me to pursue my goals and new found love of kettlebell training. Last but not least, I walked away from your seminar knowing how to truly " Live Life Aggressively". GOD bless and thanks again."
- Joe Nicholson, NYC

"I enjoyed the seminar immensely and definitely got my money’s worth. Thanks for the tips. I wasn’t sore everywhere, my feet, calves, jaw and hands were fine. The rest of me was a wreck. Ok most of me still is a wreck. I feel much more confident of the windmill and presses after going through the seminar."
- Brad Koltak, Bethesda, MD

"Thank you for the KB Workshop in Bethesda. You are correct in saying, you cannot learn everything from a video, and you need personal attention. The workshop was well organized and filled with a ton of information. Dylan’s insight was a nice touch. He is definitely a wealth of information on KB application. The two of you really complement each other. The workshop was definitely aggressive, no unnecessary fluff."
- Ron Hiett

"As I'm sure you've been told before, you have a passion that is contagious and a natural teaching ability, which makes you great at your job. Keep up the good work."
- Andy Chestman, Bethesda, MD

"Thanks again for the great instructions and information you gave out. I experienced soreness and pain in some body parts for the first time in my life after the workshop. I thought I would benefit from kettlebells exercises, now I can do them safely with the proper techniques."
- Chiali Sung, NYC

"Mike, I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your seminar in NYC this weekend. The class was extremely well organized and you guys were very efficient and informative. I think even a novice like me could get something very valuable out of the class. I also though it was a great idea to have more than one instructor given the size of the group. Overall, you guys did a great job and really kicked our collective asses."
- Kevin Saer, NYC

"It was an absolute pleasure to watch you work. You are a great teacher and clearly enjoy your trade. You are a true professional."
- Mike Rutherford, Owner of Crossfit/Kansas

"I just want to say thank you for your efforts. I now feel confident in the ability to properly use kettlebell's. Your expertise and guidance, and those of your fellow instructors, have increased my performance 1000%. It was a great training day and one I will not soon forget, however, I was one whipped pup on Sunday. Please keep me in mind for future classes if you return to the Philadelphia area."
- Rick Nowaczek, Philadelphia

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your very informative and inspirational workshop last weekend in Big D. I found it to be very valuable and well worth the money! I only began training with KB's about 2 months ago but have found them to be addictive. I was never a big one for working out but KB's and meeting you have changed that! I am actually very interested in becoming an RKC so that I can become an instructor/personal trainer. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me but meeting people like you and Lisa Schaffer keeps me inspired and motivated! Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you again."
- Christine Myck Dallas, TX

"It would be an understatement to say I am sore! Your intense understanding of what you teach is incredible, and combined with your tremendous personality it makes for a very rewarding and enjoyable experience. I will definitely be purchasing some kettlebells. I appreciate your firmness and no nonsense approach, as to many workshops get out of control and off track. You stayed on task and in control. You are a true professional Mike!"
- Vincent Harris, Lenexa, Kansas

"Thanks for the incredible workshop. After the months of trying to learn proper technique from books and videos it was about time I got a professional to help, and you were quite the professional. It was also great fun to meet you, the man behind the legend, and see you perform the movements with such great ease. Thanks again, hopefully I'll have the chance to meet with you another time."
- Ryan Plauche, Dallas, TX

"The wealth of immediately usable information I came away with was tremendous - I have had a lot of technique flaws that have kept me from accomplishing a number of lifts. Mike's clear instructions and breaking each exercise into steps blocks was a very effective. The 52# bell has been my stopping point for a long time; I have only been able to poor cleans, press one a couple times (on a good day) and do snatches and swings with it. During the class I was able to clean and press a pair of 52s for reps, successfully clean the 72# bell, hack squat the 52# for reps and front squat the 52s in the low rack position for reps....none of which I could do before Mike's clinic."
- Kelly Moore, Wisconsin

"The workshops are great. I learn something new every time, even after going for more than 2 years. They are extremely well organized, professionally conducted, and nicely tailored to the ability level of the folks who attend. Keep up the good work. Your written work is superb and ranks with Pavel Tsatsouline, Scott Sonnen, and Clarence Bass in terms of originality, quality of thought, and refreshing lack of hyperbole. Thanks for teaching me the Whole Body Double Snatch - a world class exercise of almost evil genius."

1. You have always wanted to attend a kettlebell workshop but never had the time or resources. People pay $400.00 to attend my kettlebell training workshop and that is just the registration fee. You get the next best thing for a very affordable price. In fact if you cannot afford this DVD then you have much bigger problems to worry about than learning kettlebell training! Finally, In some ways the DVD is better than attending the workshop as you can watch it multiple times.

2. You want a content rich product with excellent information, high quality production, and a reasonable price that does not insult your intelligence. Many would charge $100.00 or more for this DVD. After all it is over two hours of extremely rich content with no fluff whatsoever. However, I want this DVD to be accessible to the masses and help a lot of people.Hell, many charge as much as I do for DVD's that are only thirty minutes! No that is an insult!

3. You want to master the essential kettlebell lifts and want high quality lucid instruction. (I never say, uh, umm, you know, when I instruct because I am a professional communicator that cares about getting my message delivered clearly)

4. You want to make this year the year you actually lose fat and get the body you have always dreamed of with real strength and vitality to match

5. You realize that what you are doing now is not enough and you want to maximize the benefits of kettlebell training

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How Long Is The DVD?

A: Over two hours of completely fluff free information. My brother Roger trimmed all the fat and reduced it to a super content DVD. Unlike other workshop DVD’s you will not be constantly fast forwarding looking for the few gems. No footage of people eating lunch, chitchatting, or anything else that insults your intelligence and pocket book.

Q: I am just getting started with kettlebells is this DVD a fit for me?

A: Of course this DVD was made for you!

Q: I am an advanced kettlebell trainee, is this DVD a fit?

If you have the basics down then I would get another one of my DVD's such as "The kettlebell Solution For Size And Strength" or "The Kettlebell Solution For Speed And Explosive Strength." However, keep in mind that I have a much different way of teaching kettlebells than other instructors so do not expect this DVD to be a cliché of other beginner Kettlebell Training DVD's. I have no doubt that you will pick up a lot from this DVD regardless of what your skill level is at.

Q: I have a lot of workshop DVD’s and they all have poor film quality and even worse sound quality. What can I expect with yours?

A: Great question and I know exactly what you are taking about. Frankly, I have been disappointed with every workshop DVD that I have purchased as well. I can promise you that you will not be disappointed with this DVD. My brother Roger who films and edits all of my DVD’s is a pro and he did an exceptional job filming and editing our DVD.

Q: I only have one kettlebell. How many one-arm drills are there on the DVD?

Q: Plenty to keep you busy for a long time. Trust me there is a lot you can do with one bell and more importantly a lot that is taught on this DVD with one bell.

Q: I love double KB training, are there any double drills on this DVD?

A: You betcha! I love Double KB training as well and this DVD is loaded with double KB drills. You will not be disappointed.

Q: What happens if I do not like the DVD?

A: You have 30 days to send the DVD back for a hassle free refund of the purchase price. I would of course like a brief explanation to ensure that future projects are improved.

A: Yes, I welcome your questions and want to make sure you get the most out of your purchase. I value your business and do not take your time and money lightly.

A: Not on the DVD. I saved that for the workshop manual e-book that you get as a bonus when you buy the DVD.

Q: What format is the DVD in and will it work on international DVD players?

A: It is in DVD/video format and will work on all players.

"Mike Mahler is an expert in the challenging field of sports conditioning. His unique and innovate teaching tactics guarantee high retention of these one of kind workouts. His extensive knowledge feeds a powerful passion to explore the human body with safety and strength. If you get a chance to train with him; do so or regret it."
- Frank Shamrock, Five Time UFC Middleweight Champion

"You are an incredible instructor. As a corporate trainer, I understand the energy it takes to manage, teach, and motivate a group. You really excel at breaking down even the most technical exercise into the appropriate steps . The progression allows everyone to be successful. It is clear you love what you are doing and have fun doing it...which translates into everyone else having fun."
- Barbara McDuffie

"Hey Mike, You're seminar was so awesome. I am writing this a few days after and am still so sore, I was having so much fun, I didn't realize how hard we were working. Thanks for answering my hundreds of questions, I really like all your ideas of not only exercise but overall health. I can't believe how fast the four hour seminar flew by. You rock!"
- Chris Pontius, Star of MTV's "Jackass" and "Wildboyz"

"I have been around and trained with athletes of all disciplines: martial artists, mountaineers, powerlifters, bodybuilders, college athletes, cyclists, rock climbers, alpinists, footballers, basketballers, etc....Mike stands out more than anyone I have ever had the chance to train with. He has an uncanny ability to break down each lift into segments, focus on them, make sure you master them, then apply them to the whole. He does this with incredible detail and most importantly, patience. I am in no way affiliated with Mike or Dragondoor, so believe me.....I would have paid double if I had to for his workshop. Best six hours of training I've had, period. My snatch is now smooth enough to pass the snatch test for my weight class at the RKC. I was coming up short before, but after Mike, the snatch seems like a whole new lift. In regards to Mike being second to Pavel....I used to be of that mindset but now I question it. I think once you achieve the level of fitness Mike has, none is your better. You just have many equals and countless lesser."
- Steve Meidinger, Denver, CO

"Before attending your workshop, on the Military Press I was able to press the 32kg around 3-4 times on each arm. I just tried it yesterday and cranked out 7 reps with 1-2 left to spare…. I feel the class gave me the extra help with technique that I needed to pull the lat into it more. SWEET!"
- Dustin Silveri, Reno, NV

"I just wanted to say hello and thank you after attending my first kettlebell seminar in NYC this past weekend. My mind was truly blown away (not to mention my ENTIRE body)!! You are a powerhouse of knowledge and a wonderful motivator. Going back to my gym today was tough - all I could think about was how much I want to learn to master the kettlebell exercises and dump traditional weightlifting. Thanks for opening my eyes and helping me discover a way out of my boring training routine. Look forward to another seminar! Thanks again!"
- Julie Nuzzo, NYC

"Thanks to your coaching on lifting heavy kettlebells, I am finally able to snatch an 88lb KB! Several points on technique I learned at your Level 1 Kettlebell Seminar in Miami last made the difference."
- Frank DiMeo CrossFit Gulf Coast

"Thanks for the great seminar. Quinton and I learned a lot and now better understand the fundamentals that will propel us to success. I am finding it hard to walk today :) I hope our beginner status didn't slow things down too much. Next time I see you I'll show off my deep squat! I believe that this class and the system taught is the most fundamentally sound program I have ever seen. Quinton said if he would have known about this 4 years ago he would have been State champ rather than just the league champ in wrestling."
- Kib Pearson

"Mike is an incredible teacher with his own unique way of simplifying the moves. He breaks down each and every move piece by piece putting them together as if you were building blocks. This in turn simplifies the moves and when he finally has you execute the lift it comes together like magic with more precision and perfection. I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 30 years, starting as a competitive bodybuilder and in all these years I have not seen such an amazing yet simple teaching techniques. As a martial arts instructor I can say that Mike has an incredible progressive teaching method that I’ve only seen in elite martial arts masters. When I shared this with Mike he told me that he saw kettlebells training like martial arts training. If you can not get to one of his workshops do get his DVD’s. I just got and strongly recommend “Kettlebell Solution for Size and Strength.” Mike Mahler is a true Kettlebell Master. He is destined to become a Fitness Superstar in the very near future."
- Julio Anta, Owner of Anta's Fitness And Self Defense

"You are an excellent motivator and a wealth of great information! You deserve every bit of good fortune and than some, that comes your way! You opened a new door for me that desperately needed an opening. I'm really sick and tired of traditional weight training and all the pompous uninformative trainers that come along with it. They are all show muscle, and are more interested in taking people's hard earned money and BS-ing with their friends and potential prospects during client time. It was cool to see NYC's legendary Harley Flanagan get put through your routines too. I think he was even more surprised to find out I was a fan as well and played the Cromags back in the day when I was a Metal/ Hardcore DJ in NJ… Olli's sure I will be emailing you again soon with some more questions and I will be one of your future on-line clients. Thanks again for an awesome day & hurry back to NYC bro!!"
- Tim Koenig , NYC

"Thanks again for a great seminar - it was an excellent opportunity to learn how to do the basics the right way! Seriously, I had a great time. You're an excellent instructor - not many people can make six hours of working out/learning that much fun. The time really flew by, so that's a good endorsement for your ability to keep it fresh."
- Laurie Dann, Miami, FL

"Mike, I wanted to let you know that I was thoroughly impressed with your seminar that you held in Arvada, CO. last week. Your skills at teaching and instructing are nothing less than expert. I have been "playing around" with KB's for about a year, and I am always self conscious about my form. I thought that I had my techniques practiced and learned properly. Your seminar helped to correct my form in the clean, the Turkish Get-Up(TGU), windmill, military press, and the bent press. Again, your expert instruction and demonstration of the most technical bends/grinds saved me from my poor bent press form. The way you throw around the bulldogs is inspiring."
- Thomas Buhl, Denver, CO

"Please come back to DC. We'd like to attend another workshop from you. Amazingly enough, my entire body is sore, but not my lower back. The first time I was trained with someone else, I had a sore back. I just love the way you trained us. It's phenomenal!"
- Mya Thida

"I really enjoyed your workshop. I feel I got my monies worth still sore). I learned a lot at your workshop. I will say that being directly in front of you the majority of the time had a tremendous effect on my focus. My learning how not to have the KBs bang my wrist when I do Cleans was worth the price of admission all by itself and the rest was icing on the cake. The 6 hours went by too fast for me. There was so much more I would like to have learned from you. Your generosity and approach-ability are rare qualities. I believe if you nurture those qualities about yourself you will continue to be successful. Unselfish behavior is a rare thing in the business world; especially when it pertains to fitness. Allowing me to take a DVD trusting I would PayPal for it later was a shock. I expected to hear "Sorry, I just can't do that." So Thank You again."
- James Day, Lenexa, Kansas

“That was the best seminar I've been to. Good job. Also, your DVD is really hot. The setting is perfect and that first move drew me in capturing my attention. I look forward to reading more of your articles and experiencing your training. I will definitely be attending another seminar.”
- Mike Tornabane

"Thanks so much for coming to Denver. I learned a lot about certain exercises. I've been working on the double military press. GTG. Before the seminar I could only budge the 70's. Now I am doing like three sets of two each day. Your totally awesome."
- Thomas Kitchen, Denver, CO

"You tha man!! That sh*t was awesome!!! F**kin A right on!!! ha ha ha yo that sh*t was sick i was sore for like two days! You run the seminar drill sergeant style! I loved it and I gotta get real strong and get that sh*t down and do a guest spot on your next DVD."
- Harley Flanagan of the band "Harley's War" and founder of the NYC Hardcore Band "The Cro-Mags"

"Hey Mike, thank you for the excellent seminar. it was really great to meet you and learn the kb's from you. You really do a great job on all points, you know the material really well, you kept us moving (my friggin butt is still sore..haha) and you got the good personality to go with it...I see why your successful at the seminars. I really appreciated the detailed feedback too as it made a big difference for me."
- Jon Hinds of Lifeline USA

"Mike, I just wanted to say that your seminar was beyond advertised, and I feel very confident in attending the RKC certification in April. The corrections you made in my snatch not only allowed me to complete the 72 snatches with the 53lb kettlebell, but when I got home I was able to do 60 snatches with the 72lb kettlebell feeling stronger than ever with the exercise. The strength routines you suggested ie. 3x3 and 5x5 with multi-joint exercises take me 30-40 minutes and the results are 10x what I ever got weightlifting. Strength coaches do not usually deliver more than offered, but you are obviously an exception when it comes to professionalism and teaching. Looking forward to having you come back to NYC for a level 2 seminar."
- Marc Simione NSCA-CPT, Strength Coach

"Firstly, Mike you are truly INSANE when it comes to KB training and your seminar...AWESOME! Well worth its weight in gold. I learned alot more than just proper form and technique, I learned preparation, focus and attention to detail and all the other nuances that go along with kettlebell training. The soreness and body ache are a testament to everything taught at the seminar. I strongly urge anyone who is procrastinating or delaying to register RIGHT NOW. Secondly, I'd like to thank you Mike and Dillon wholeheartedly for the inspiration and motivation you have given me to pursue my goals and new found love of kettlebell training. Last but not least, I walked away from your seminar knowing how to truly " Live Life Aggressively". GOD bless and thanks again."
- Joe Nicholson, NYC

"I enjoyed the seminar immensely and definitely got my money’s worth. Thanks for the tips. I wasn’t sore everywhere, my feet, calves, jaw and hands were fine. The rest of me was a wreck. Ok most of me still is a wreck. I feel much more confident of the windmill and presses after going through the seminar."
- Brad Koltak, Bethesda, MD

"Thank you for the KB Workshop in Bethesda. You are correct in saying, you cannot learn everything from a video, and you need personal attention. The workshop was well organized and filled with a ton of information. Dylan’s insight was a nice touch. He is definitely a wealth of information on KB application. The two of you really complement each other. The workshop was definitely aggressive, no unnecessary fluff."
- Ron Hiett

"As I'm sure you've been told before, you have a passion that is contagious and a natural teaching ability, which makes you great at your job. Keep up the good work."
- Andy Chestman, Bethesda, MD

"Thanks again for the great instructions and information you gave out. I experienced soreness and pain in some body parts for the first time in my life after the workshop. I thought I would benefit from kettlebells exercises, now I can do them safely with the proper techniques."
- Chiali Sung, NYC

"Mike, I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your seminar in NYC this weekend. The class was extremely well organized and you guys were very efficient and informative. I think even a novice like me could get something very valuable out of the class. I also though it was a great idea to have more than one instructor given the size of the group. Overall, you guys did a great job and really kicked our collective asses."
- Kevin Saer, NYC

"It was an absolute pleasure to watch you work. You are a great teacher and clearly enjoy your trade. You are a true professional."
- Mike Rutherford, Owner of Crossfit/Kansas

"I just want to say thank you for your efforts. I now feel confident in the ability to properly use kettlebell's. Your expertise and guidance, and those of your fellow instructors, have increased my performance 1000%. It was a great training day and one I will not soon forget, however, I was one whipped pup on Sunday. Please keep me in mind for future classes if you return to the Philadelphia area."
- Rick Nowaczek, Philadelphia

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your very informative and inspirational workshop last weekend in Big D. I found it to be very valuable and well worth the money! I only began training with KB's about 2 months ago but have found them to be addictive. I was never a big one for working out but KB's and meeting you have changed that! I am actually very interested in becoming an RKC so that I can become an instructor/personal trainer. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me but meeting people like you and Lisa Schaffer keeps me inspired and motivated! Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you again."
- Christine Myck Dallas, TX

"It would be an understatement to say I am sore! Your intense understanding of what you teach is incredible, and combined with your tremendous personality it makes for a very rewarding and enjoyable experience. I will definitely be purchasing some kettlebells. I appreciate your firmness and no nonsense approach, as to many workshops get out of control and off track. You stayed on task and in control. You are a true professional Mike!"
- Vincent Harris, Lenexa, Kansas

"Thanks for the incredible workshop. After the months of trying to learn proper technique from books and videos it was about time I got a professional to help, and you were quite the professional. It was also great fun to meet you, the man behind the legend, and see you perform the movements with such great ease. Thanks again, hopefully I'll have the chance to meet with you another time."
- Ryan Plauche, Dallas, TX

"The wealth of immediately usable information I came away with was tremendous - I have had a lot of technique flaws that have kept me from accomplishing a number of lifts. Mike's clear instructions and breaking each exercise into steps blocks was a very effective. The 52# bell has been my stopping point for a long time; I have only been able to poor cleans, press one a couple times (on a good day) and do snatches and swings with it. During the class I was able to clean and press a pair of 52s for reps, successfully clean the 72# bell, hack squat the 52# for reps and front squat the 52s in the low rack position for reps....none of which I could do before Mike's clinic."
- Kelly Moore, Wisconsin

"The workshops are great. I learn something new every time, even after going for more than 2 years. They are extremely well organized, professionally conducted, and nicely tailored to the ability level of the folks who attend. Keep up the good work. Your written work is superb and ranks with Pavel Tsatsouline, Scott Sonnen, and Clarence Bass in terms of originality, quality of thought, and refreshing lack of hyperbole. Thanks for teaching me the Whole Body Double Snatch - a world class exercise of almost evil genius."
- Kevin Garrison, Alexandria, VA
