With so many flavors to chose from, pinpointing the best kettlebells among a vast landscape of choices can be tough. We’ve created a resource to help demystify the selection process by searching high and low for top rated kettlebells. The benefits of kettlebell workouts are real and more and more people have incorporated kettlebells exercises into their fitness regimen. Our goal is to provide a guide to those in the market for kettlebells for home use. We promise to do our best to stay on top of “what’s new” and kettlebells trends. Our primary methodology: review the Best Sellers and Top Rated kettlebells from as many popular merchants and authorities as possible, distill our findings and share them with you in our reviews. Initially, we’ll focus on reviewing kettlebell equipment but over time, we’ll add information on kettlebell accessories (gloves, racks, etc.) and workout information.
Below are kettlebell reviews of the top 15 KBs on the market. The data is presented in an interactive matrix that contains the following information about each set:
- Price range: note that some kettlebells are priced individually and some are priced in sets. If you see a higher price on the low end of the price range, you can bet its a set and we’ve tried to clearly designate which are sets and which are individual KBs.
- Weight range: most manufacturers increase weight sizes in increments of 5 pounds but other may do things a little differently (i.e. increase in 4 or 6 pound increments).
- Color choices
- Core: are they made from cast iron or cement? Or are they adjustable kettlebells with steel weight plates?
- Rating: based on customer reviews on Amazon.
The matrix contains links to deeper (or at least as deep as one can go…we’re talking about cannonballs with handles, right?) analysis into each kettlebell and details the “Good” and “Not so good” based on real customer data. Together, the kettlebell reviews matrix and individual kettlebell deep dives should put you well on your way to determining which brand is best for you and your situation (our #1 goal creating this site).
Methodology: we’ve checked out best selling and highly rated kettlebells from popular merchants, distilled our findings and shared them here. “Best” is subjective but we’re hoping this guide can help explain some of the high level differences and put some optics behind what each set looks like. Moreover, we’ve also included individual reviews for each set of kettlebells in an effort to help you make a more informed choice.
It should be pointed out that the price ranges reflected in this matrix are “a snapshot in time” and can change frequently so there could be slight pricing differentials (+ / -) by the time you discover this site and take a deeper dive. Also, most kettlebells are priced à la carte (i.e. you pay for each weight individually) but there are some “package deals” (e.g. MTN Kettlebells) that include multiple kettlebells in a set at reduced costs. Moreover, the matrix includes data for adjustable kettlebells sets, which are great space and $$ savers.
As mentioned at the top, we’ll do our best to keep this kettlebell reviews matrix updated over time as new kettlebells enter the market and/or we find good deals. If you happen to run into any broken links, outdated informaton or find a kettlebell set that should be included in this matrix, we would appreciate a “heads up”. Enjoy!
