Shopping for a Kettlebell


Finding the right kettlebell can be very confusing. Knowing what sizes to purchase and brands to invest in can be very overwhelming. Generally when just beginning your journey you can purchase just one kettlebell. There is no pressure to rush and order several at a time. Developing strength will be an organic process when done correctly. You will know when you are ready to incorporate a heavier kettlebell into your program.
At the very minimum this is what I recommend:
In a perfect world it’s nice to have options for the different exercises. If you have the funds to invest in several at a time then this is what I’d recommend for the average male and female:
You can view some of the packages I have put together for both men and female here. 
  • Women – 8kg, 12kg, 16kg Kettlebell package
  • Mens – 16kg, 20kg, 24kg Kettlebell Package

Russian Kettlebell Metrixx E-Coat

10 KG | 22 Lb Metrixx™ E-Coat Kettlebell

These classic Russian Kettlebells Metrixx series have a perfect shape that allows you to put your hand through to have the handle rest on the base of your hand without bending your wrist back. These bells are similar to the classic style bell that I began my kettlebell journey. The Metrixx coat kettlebells have a very nice non slip grip with a resilient finish. The main difference is the affordable price and perfectly flat handmachined flat bottom. These bells are made with single cast moldings wth superior consistency and quality.

32 KG Paradigm Pro Competition Kettlebell

About Competition Kettlebells. Great advantage of competition kettlebells is the handle size stays the same. Perfect for people with smaller hands. Perfect for doing push-ups on and renegage rows even for the 8kg bells.
These classic Russian Kettlebells Metrixx series have a perfect shape that allows you to put your hand through to have the handle rest on the base of your hand without bending your wrist back. These bells are similar to the classic style bell that I began my kettlebell journey. The Metrixx coat kettlebells have a very nice non slip grip with a resilient finish. The main difference is the affordable price and perfectly flat handmachined flat bottom. These bells are made with single cast moldings with superior consistency and quality.
Due to the fact that Competition (Pro Grade) kettlebells are made from steel, and not cast iron, they are more durable. This is not to say that the cast iron russian kettlebells will fall apart, it just means that steel is stronger than cast iron and therefore more durable.
Pro Grade handles are slightly slimmer than with traditional cast iron kettlebells. The handles are specifically designed to prevent lateral slipping and minimize fatigue with high repetition sets.
The smaller handle size of competition kettlebells allows many women with small hands to workout with more weight since the handle size does not get thicker as the weight increases.
Pro Grade Competition Kettlebells look “fat” compared to cast iron bells. They have a larger mass in the ball of the bell, imparting different, and many think, better ballistic properties due to this larger center mass.
