best kettlebells to buy

Kettlebells are a great item to have at home for working out.  The best kettlebells to buy will depend on many things – the space you have, your budget, and how many different weights you’ll want.

I’ve chosen some of the best selling kettle bells available at the moment which will suit many different situations.

What to consider when looking for the best kettlebells to buy

There are many things to consider when looking to buy a set of kettlebells.

First of all is your budget.  Vinyl bells are often cheaper than cast iron sets, but can come in a more reduced amount of weight variation.  You’ll also want to think about what weights you’re likely to want to use and the best way your budget will be able to get those.

Also think about where you’re planning to train – are you going to be worrying about breaking something, or perhaps about kids picking them up?  Being able to store them easily might be something to consider.

JLL Kettlebells

Cast iron kettlebells are the most popular kind and my preferred version.  If you can, get them with either an enamel or a neoprene coating like these bestselling kettle bells from JLL as that can prevent any kind of marking on the floor as well as being slightly more comfortable to use.

These are available individually in 2kg – 24kg sizes

York Fitness Vinyl Kettlebell

If you’re looking to get started with some cheap kettlebells and want an inexpensive set to begin with, these vinyl kettlebells from York Fitness are a really great buy.  They come individually in all sorts of weights from 2kg to 20kg.

This can also be bought as a set here which is a little bit of a more economical way to purchase if you need the lighter set.

One downside to vinyl kettle bells is that they are much larger in comparison to their weight and so take up more space, which might be something to consider if your home gym space is compact.

We R Sports Chrome Steel adjustable kettlebell

If you’re really short on space and want to have a compact kettlebell that will work for you then looking at an adjustable kettlebell is probably a good idea!  Basically you have a basic kettlebell and can adjust the weight by adding weight plates to it.  It would be especially good if you already have these at home as part of your dumbbell set.

If you’re looking for a budget option for some heavier kettle bells this could work out well.

Kettlebell wrist guard

If you’re going to do any sort of kettlebell training on a regular basis then a wrist guard is a really good idea.  This one has plastic inserts to provide more support and the material means they can double as a sweat band.  They don’t interfere and cause you to have bad technique either.
