Overview

You can make major changes to your body without spending hours in the gym. By using a kettlebell and following her own eating plan. Tracy Reifkind lost 120 pounds, has kept the weight off for six years, and has helped countless other people let their real bodies break through.

The Swing! workout is:

Fast. Kettlebell training is so effective in burning claories, building muscle, and toning the body that you can see results in as little as four 30-minute workouts.

Economical. You can swing a kettlebell in your bedroom, in the living room, in the garage—almost anywhere. You'll never have to pay for another expensive gym membership.

Efficient. You get strength training, a cardio workout, and flexibility training all in a single session. It's a three-in-one workout—better than weight lifting.

Easy. Anyone can use a kettlebell. Whether you are a woman or a man, an athlete or a couch potato, slender or overweight, you can benefit from the Swing! workout.

As well as teaching you the most effective workout possible, The Swing! provides a food plan with a focus on great flavor and making sure you never go hungry. As featured in the bestselling The 4-Hour Body, Tracy Reifkind's exercise, diet, and lifestyle program harnesses the extraordinary power of kettlebells to create rapid and long-term weight loss in just four hours a month.

    Tracy is a real woman who has battled the same issues we all hav

    Tracy is a real woman who has battled the same issues we all have. She was 250 lbs for most of her adult life, and finally at age 41, she decided to take full charge of her life and her health. When she picked up the kettlebell for the first time, her journey began and it has brought her to a place where she is one of the most-respected women in the RKC world.

    This book is fantastic. Tracy is real, she's compassionate, she's easy to understand, and she offers real hope, even for those of us who have been obese most, if not all, of our lives. Her explanations and the photographic demonstrations are easy to understand.

    I couldn't recommend this book more, and whenever anyone asks me about my passion for kettlebells and what kettlebells are all about, I am pointing them to this book. Tracy has been there. She understands. And she makes people believe that they really can become the person that they want to be.

    "The kettlebell swing changed my body in a way nothing else ever did or - I'm convinced now - ever could. I lost a lot of weight, but I had lost weight before. What I hadn't ever done was fallen in love with my body, from the way it looked to how it made me feel each day." - from "The Swing" by Tracy Reifkind

    Tracy is helping me fall in love with my own body, and I'm feeling more powerful and strong every day. That feeling is translating into every facet of my life, including my job, my marriage and my relationships. I will always be grateful for the truth inside me, that Tracy has helped to reveal.
