Kettlebell Kickboxing™ is a one-of-a-kind method developed by fitness expert & martial artist Dasha Libin Anderson, MS, NASM-PES, NASE, MKC, M-KBIA.
Dasha’s ideology is simple: You Only Have One Body – Your Body – And Your Body Has Amazing Potential. Our goal, in classes, through instructor certifications, and most importantly through our popular home fitness Body and Scorcher SeriesDVDs is to help you unlock that potential.
Facts are Facts: Fitness is in the details. If you’re not following a solid, result driven program – you’re not doing it – you are not getting fitter, healthier or stronger*. You are also not losing weight, or shedding stubborn pockets of fat. Dasha has spent over a decade developing a system that is based on science, experience, and expertise. Taking her years in martial arts, her Masters in Sports Science, her work with actors and other A-list stars, her background growing up in Russia and of course her own weight struggles, Dasha developed a method that helps women (and men) look and feel the way they always wanted. It was important for Dasha to do this with a program that provides minimal impact on the joints, and doesn’t consume a persons life. It was also important to make it available to everyone, even those wanting to train in the comforts of their own home.
Anyone can lose weight by going on starvation diets, however, it takes real expertise, experience, and education to help a person achieve a strong and healthy, lean body with a very attainable and practical nutrition and workout regiment. Imagine training 35-50 minutes a day and using sustainable, healthy nutrition to stay satisfied and healthy- thats is the key to all of our programs.
REMEMBER the ONLY Real Success Story is the one that Lasts!
It’s simple, Dasha realized early on that fitness can and absolutely should be:Fun, Effective, Time Efficient, Safe and Accessible to Everyone. Fitness should also be Progressive and Challenging. By using the unique motions of martial arts like Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, French Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Silat, Karate, Wushu as well as Martial Arts Yoga from Kalaripayattu, Kettlebell Kickboxing takes your kettlebell /or dumbbell routine to the next level. You will absolutely love your training session. You will also eat clean and sustain your nutrition – not ‘diet’ with Dasha’s simple and basic nutrition rules and guidelines. The same ones that work so well for celebrities, and her case studies. Most importantly you WILL see, feel and enjoy the amazing results*.
Fact Is: Fitness is FUN and it is far less time consuming, restricting or stressful then you think!

Need A Little Science?
Because muscle is metabolically more active than fat, it needs more calories to live. Luckily, lean muscles are exactly what you get during your Kettlebell Kickboxing™ Body and Scorcher Series DVD workouts and live Kettlebell Kickboxing™ classes. Dasha’s martial arts sculpting principles will never get you to form bulky muscles, instead helping you to develop a long and lean shape. Think about it, was Bruce Lee bulky? No, neither is any other martial artists you know. Somehow they all maintain a lean and sculpted shape, are super fit and active well into their old age. Keep in mind: muscles work magic – they not only lift and sculpt fat storing areas in the body, they also burn calories way after your workout is done. Lastly, your lean muscles will serve as a great source of injury prevention, not only during activity but internally, helping to build a healthier, stronger YOU.
Kettlebell Kickboxing™ is also unique because of its Martial HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) principles. Dasha’s Martial HIIT intervals are not just a regular High Intensity Interval (2-for-1 work-rest ratio) – Martial HIIT uses the basic principles of martial art intervals, which have been around for centuries. In martial arts, it is typical to see 3 or 4 minute rounds of training with a 1-minute rest. It is also common to see 15 -20 seconds of explosive motion followed by static resistance. This allows you to maximize calorie burn, maintain optimal muscle recruitment, and raise your metabolic rate long after the training has finished, all while minimizing the actual time you spend working out. Clinically proven to show triple the results of steady state cardio like the elliptical, High Intensity Intervals are a key component of every training session.
What’s up with the kettlebell? In a 2010 American Council of Exercise research study it was noted that “…During the 20-minute kettlebell workout, the average calorie burn was 272 calories…” the study continues by stating that subjects “ … were burning at least 20.2 calories per minute, which is off the charts. That’s equivalent to running a 6-minute mile pace.” You can read the full study here. In classes, and specifically in every single DVD, Dasha shows you how to use the dumbbell like a kettlebell, and of course she teaches and uses kettlebell motion. She has also evolved the art of kettlebells and progressed it into countless trademark sequences and motions. Consider this: combining kettlebell techniques with Sports Science, Kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu and other martial arts motions increases those ACE study numbers and allows the body to achieve its peak level of fitness. You will develop coordination, balance, flexibility, power and strength. You will restructure your body. You will build lean muscles and lose weight without severe dieting.
Keep in mind: *Results may vary. The average user’s results may vary and are subject to several factors including, but not limited to, the user’s adherence to the 7 day Lean Series workouts and diet, exercise and activity frequency , and body composition. This program is not made to replace a doctor. We always recommend you start a scientific and real workout and diet program like the 7DL and find out how incredible your own health and fitness results can be, never comparing yourself to anyone else’s body – as we are all uniquely individual.
