Agreed with the Lauren Brooks suggestion. Safe, effective, PROPER kettlebell training. There is a lot of imitation out there including celebrity trainers (biggest loser) which promote unsafe kettlebell usage and crappy kettlebells!
Buy the ones you will find on dragondoor.com, not the adjustable ones or Wal-Mart type stuff. Get the real thing. The plain black ones are fine, there is also a competition version but that's not necessary for a beginner. Get an 8kg to start with - you don't really need lighter, despite what the fitness fad tells you. Proper kettlebell trainers never start women below 8kg without serious medical exception.
