Affordable kettlebells

I am very excited to announce that I will soon be offering affordable, high quality kettlebells through this website!

Yay kettlebells!The new kettlebell emporium will be opening in August 2009 and for you, dear readers, there will be introductory special offers and promotions, so watch this space!!

I have had several requests from readers for more posts on kettlebells and I am very happy to be able to oblige at last. Kettlebells are the perfect at-home tool for strength, fitness, endurance and fat loss, so I am not surprised that you want to see more of them 😉

I have linked up with the lovely people at Wolverson Fitness who are very generously sponsoring my kettlebell content. I genuinely couldn’t do this without them.

Wolverson kettlebells

I first came across Wolverson Fitness kettlebells at a Crossfit Reading kettlebell workshop (see the review here) and was very impressed with the quality and useability of the ‘bells.

  • Good clearance under the handle
  • Nice range of colours (great for instructors and clubs)
  • Well made and hard wearing
  • Competition standard design
  • Weights in increments of 2kg rather than 4kg (brilliant for beginners)

But importantly, these were great kettlebells at a reasonable price. Anyone who has tried to shop for a kettlebell knows that there is a wide range both of price and quality available. Personally I found it all quite confusing so I was very happy to find a product that was both affordable and great quality.

When I got in touch with Wolverson they were enthusiastic about getting involved with It’s great to work with a company that sees the benefits of supporting the functional fitness community as well as just, you know, selling stuff.

So loads of kettlebell fun to look forward to this summer. Remember, there’ll be introductory special offers, so start writing your wish list now!

Sorry folks but we can only ship within the UK mainland.

    Yes, there’ll be some great limited-time deals to celebrate the opening of the new shop! I’ll post the details when it is up and running.

    Regular customers of mine will also get access to special promotions throughout the year, so it’ll be worth shopping on this site 🙂

    Pity you won´t be shipping to other EU-countries. I guess the shipping fees would be too high.

    Yes, with such a heavy item it is probably cheaper to get them in-country. However I’d certainly look into shipping them abroad on a case-by-case basis if individual customers needed this.

    Thanks for spreading the word. This really is the best deal in the UK at the moment for a quality ‘bell that will last a lifetime – but the offer is only on until 10th September!
