Adjustable Kettlebells

If you’re looking for a one-stop value-packed kettlebell solution that gives you a full range, and lifetime, in a single piece of equipment, the adjustable kettlebell is for you.

It is ergonomically identical to a competition kettlebell. Depending on the weight package you select, you can get up at a range of 12KG – 32KG with 0.5KG increments in between. That’s 41 kettlebell weight increments in one easy-to-adjust product!

Competition Kettlebells

Their main advantage of competition kettlebells is that their size is determined by kettlebell competitions standards, which means they are the same size, regardless of weight and shape. This means that as you progress to heavier competition kettlebells, your technique can remain consistent.

One important note is the starter ones of 4, 6, and 8KG have slightly smaller windows and handles to help beginners just starting out.

Another big advantage to competition kettlebells is that they are made of steel rather than iron, giving them a slight durability advantage over cast iron kettlebells.

Powder Coated Kettlebells

Powder-coated kettlebells are a cost-effective option if you still want different weights but don’t want to pay the cost of a competition bell and don’t want to adjust the bell for different exercises.

The powder coating provides an improved texture that is perfect for maximizing our grip and holds chalk better than any other kettlebell style, which also helps to maintain a strong grip on the kettlebell. Each weight is also color-coded.
