I created Kettlebell Athletics in 2003. And since that time I've been able to test out kettlebells from many different sources and companies. During our workshops and certifications, I'm often asked which kettlebell I enjoy working with or prefer the most.

To make it simple, I prefer to get all my kettlebells from a singular source. It's nice to be able to shop for very heavy bells, competition bells and the more common kettlebell all in one place, so I often send people to Rogue Fitness.

The kettlebells below are their new "competition kettlebell" line. If you prefer to work with a competition style kettlebell, I think you'll enjoy this model very much.

The kettlebells below are the much more common kettlebell mold. Many people prefer this shape as it's the most common and what was first introduced to the U.S. in the early 2000s.

Again, they have  sweet flat black finish that's very functional and holds up very well.
