Girl, look at that body!

Are you looking to tone up before your wedding/scantily clad honeymoon? Have a strapless dress but are less than confident about your arms? Don’t have the time or money it would take to get the most out of a gym membership? BABs, you are in luck: The RKS Kettlebell System tackles all of these issues and more!

Not familiar with kettlebells? You should be: these cannonballs with handles are the BEST thing for working your posterior chain–the series of muscles that gives you better posture, makes you look slimmer, raises your glutes on your hamstrings–and the workout process gives you rockin’ arms, to boot! The RKS Kettlebell System consists of one kettlebell, DVDs of sixteen different kettlebell workouts, a nutritional guide, and a poster. Originally used by Russian bodybuilders, RKS has brought the kettlebell into your living room to give you amazing results in very little time.

But don’t just take it from me: our own beloved Dana gave the RKS workouts a whirl, and this is what she had to say about it: “The RKS Kettlebell workout system does not mess around, people. With workouts short enough not to interrupt your whole day, and a variety of exercises that keep you moving steadily through, it packs a serious punch that equates to serious cardio, conditioning and toning in no time flat. I highly recommend it if you want a twist on the home workout that will leave you breathless and buff. It kicked my ass in the best of ways!”

So there you have it: cardio, conditioning, and toning, and you don’t even have to leave the house!  Whether you use your workouts as much-needed “me” time or as a way to relieve stress and rage after your invitation proofs show up with more errors than you could have ever imagined, you’ll have a blast swinging your way to fitness with RKS.

This week, one lucky BAB will win a complete kettlebell system from RKS and get toned, trim, and tough!
