Buy Kettlebells Online

Since starting this blog and reading various comments, it has come to my attention that a lot of people don’t yet own Kettlebells.

This page is here to help you buy kettlebells online.

I’ll also give a brief overview of what to look for in a Kettlebell.

Are Kettlebells Expensive?

This really depends on where you shop. I think the real difficulty in buying Kettlebells is in finding the best quality, as the price can vary quite significantly.

Traditionally Kettlebells are made of cast-iron, although there has been a rise in popularity of the vinyl Kettlebell. Despite what you may think, the vinyl Kettlebell is not always the cheapest. Here are three Kettlebells currently available on amazon.

The price depends on the size you order, so it’s best to follow the link and choose the size you want in order to check the price.

Cast Iron vs Vinyl Kettlebells

Generally speaking the best Kettlebells are Cast Iron. Vinyl Kettlebells are made from a cast iron base, but are coated with vinyl on the outside. This is done to make the Kettlebell more attractive, or appear safer. In most cases the vinyl doesn’t actually make the bell safer. Damage done to furniture or toes would be caused by the weight itself, not the material.

Cast Iron Kettlebells last longer, as they don’t have vinyl to get cracked or start to peel. Wear and tear is much less of a problem when it comes to Cast Iron bells. They are often cheaper than vinyl too, since the manufacturing costs are lower. When you see a high priced cast iron kettlebells, such as those made by DragonDoor, you know that you are getting 100% quality.

Finally, for the traditionalists out there, Cast Iron are seen as the “original” kettlebells and some people scoff at Vinyl.

The first one I bought had a nice red Vinyl coating, and I chose it for the aesthetic appeal, so I guess it really comes down to personal choice. If I had to answer which was better though, I’d go with cast iron.

Useful Kettlebell Information

Kettlebells are often thought to be quite similar to dumbbells or barbells, but that is actually not the case. Kettlebells usually have their center of mass extending out beyond the hand, while a dumbbells would be centered around the hand.

This means that Kettlebell exercises favor swinging motions among others, and they always use more than one muscle at a time. If you want a more “total body” workout, Kettlebells are far superior to other bells.

Kettlebells are also great for building muscles, endurance, and being aerobic all in one.

What To Look For In A Kettlebell

The most important thing, is choosing a weight that suits you, after that, quality is also important. Like everything, you don’t want to spend money on something that doesn’t last. For this reason I recommend cast iron Kettlebells. As mentioned above, they are proven over time to be superior.

You should also consider things like whether or not the kettlebell is one piece. You definitely want it to be. Sometimes you’ll find a kettlebell where the handle is attached separately. Choosing one of these is taking a big risk, if the handle were to come off mid-swing, a LOT of damage could be done. Since there are so many top quality and reasonably priced kettlebells that are one piece, you really shouldn’t have to buy one that is in two or more pieces.
