5 Reasons Why This is the Best Kettlebell

Updated: Jan 29, 2023

Introduction


When you think of the gym equipment the first thing that comes to mind is probably barbells, dumbbells, treadmills, but kettlebells are also a great and overlooked tool. Kettlebells offer a dynamic workout involving strength, balance, coordination and intention. The downside if you're looking to add kettlebells to your home gym is the cost, but let's be honest, most gym equipment can be pricey. However, there is one adjustable dumbbell that holds the weight of 5, feels great, and the price point is fantastic.


Feels and Swings Like a Standard Kettlebell


There are a number of different adjustable dumbbells on the market, but the one that feels "right" is the Rep Fitness Adjustable Dumbbell https://amzn.to/3g1sIkQ (Klara in Europe https://amzn.to/3VnfW0g). If you've ever seen or used a kettlebell it has probably been a sleek and shiny one (USA https://amzn.to/3SXc18D or Europe https://amzn.to/3CQnUYl) used in many competitions, or a black cast iron version https://amzn.to/3CtGODa or Europe https://amzn.to/3rPo0te. It's important for those who exercise to feel comfortable with the material and equipment used and Rep Fitness does a great job creating that cast iron feel in an adjustable kettlebell setting.


5 Kettlebells in 1


If you've got a home gym or you're a personal trainer and are trying to invest in a piece of equipment that gives you many options, but takes up little space then this is a piece you need to have. I like walking into a gym and seeing an organized display of top-tier gym equipment like dumbbells, medicine balls, kettlebells, etc. However, I like having space to move around the gym and workout or for my clients to move. The space 5 kettlebells takes up may not seem to be much, but add that to everything else you might have now or in the future and I'm sure you'll enjoy having 5 kettlebells in 1.


Easy to Transition Equals Faster Workouts


The mechanism for switching from one weight to the next is as easy as turning a dial on your microwave or stove, unless you've got a touch screen on those too. To change weights from the heaviest setting to the lightest takes no more than 2 seconds. So rather than horde multiple kettlebells to do different exercises, or have to carry one back to the rack grab another, get set up and start again you can stay in the same spot, switch the weight quickly and bang out the next set seamlessly. As with anything time is probably the most priceless thing anyone has, so being able to get more work done in less time is a win and allows you to get on with your day sooner.


More Weight Options Means Better Programming


So exactly how much weight comes in this adjustable kettlebell? Better yet, how many different weight options are there. Rep Fitness has 2 separate options, 2 adjustable kettlebells come in kilograms both of which increase weight in increments of 2kg.


The lighter of the two options starts at 8kg(17.6lb) and includes 10kg (22lb), 12kg (26.5lb), 14kg (30.9lb), and at the heaviest setting 16kg (35.3lb).

The heavier adjustable kettlebell option starts at 16kg (35.3lb) and includes 18kg (39.7lb), 20kg (44.1lb), 22kg (48.5lb), and at the heaviest weight of 24kg (53lb).


All that said and done, when it comes to working out and getting better there is probably nothing more important than the Overload Principle. The overload principle states that in order to encourage the body to improve then small increments are needed over time. Having the ability to adjust the weight over time means you're going to be able to keep progressing. If you are a personal trainer you want your clients to keep the momentum going. You want to be able to challenge them when the time is right and having the options to do so at the flick of the wrist is not only jaw dropping, but a strong flex showing your readiness to help your clients get better.

Saves Space, Time, and Money

The 5-in-1 concept and how it saves you space and reduces clutter is clear. The fact that you can effortlessly shift from 8kg to 16kg or 16kg to 24kg in a couple of seconds reducing the time to setup and giving you more time to work out is priceless. Speaking of price, this is where normally something so good would pain you to buy, but this is not that case. If you compare the price of 5 competition level kettlebells or 5 Rogue cast-iron kettlebells and the REP Fitness Adjustable Kettlebell, it becomes a no brainer for gym owners (commercial and home) and personal trainers and fitness professionals.
