Buying Kettlebells:

What type should you buy?

The best way to buy kettlebells is to go to a kettlebell event (such as an RKC or Dragondoor certification) or and buy them in person.

That being said, if you want to buy them online – I recommend these kettlebells by Rep Fitness.

They are solid cast iron kettlebells, and they also have color bands painted on them so you can visually differentiate them.

In general, the average weights for men and women are: Men: 16kg (35lb) Women: 12kg (25lb).

Note: Not all kettlebells are created equal.

Most of the brands and styles you can find in stores are simply not that great – they’re poorly constructed, plasticky, come in off-sizes, have poorly-sized handles that can be plain unsafe.

Complicating matters, it used to be too expensive to order good kettlebells online, since shipping would often be more than the kettlebells themselves.
This changed with Amazon Prime.

General FAQ

Is kettlebell training right for me?

This app is intended as a low-cost introduction to kettlebell training. Always consult with a doctor prior to starting any training regimine.

What size kettlebell should I use?

Included in the app is a Kettlebell Selection video that will help you when choosing your kettlebells.

Can I make a playlist of exercises to make my own custom workout?

No. This app is intended as an introduction and a reference guide. In general, the exercises are put in the specific workout order for a reason.

Can I rate the app?

Please! You can do this on our page in the App Store. We encourage positivity. Written reviews last a long time.

Before you rate: please let us know if you are experiencing any bugs or issues, as we can most likely fix them!

Technical Details & Requirements

Does the app work on both iPhone & iPad


So if you own both devices, you can put it on both devices with a single purchase.

What are the device requirements?

This app was build for iOS 8 or later.

How much space do I need?

The initial download is less than 20MB.

Upon retrieval by WiFi or data connection, videos are stored on your device. This increases the size of the app – up to a total size of 726MB.

However, we have purposely limited video quality to minimize the space taken up on your device. Do you really need full HD video for this anyway? 🙂

You can remove these videos in the Settings menu, or by simply uninstalling the app from your device.

Buy Kettlebells

What to know when buying kettlebells:

If you’re new to kettlebells, the first thing you need to know is that most kettlebells are measured in kilograms (kg), not pounds (lbs). If you don’t remember your high school math, that’s okay – 1kg is equal to about 2.2bs. Thusly, an 8kg kettlebell would equal about 17.6 lbs.

For your first kettlebell, you’ll need a single kettlebell that is challenging, but not difficult, to do around 20 standard one-handed swings. If you are unsure about what works for you, visit a gym near you that has kettlebells, and ask if you can try them out.

In general, the average weights for men and women are:
Men: 16kg (35lb)
Women: 12kg (25lb)

You can buy 2 kettlebells for exercises that use doubles.

Don’t be afraid to err on the side of going light. You can always buy bigger bells as you progress, and injuries from starting too heavy are completely unnecessary.

See the buy kettlebells section on this page.

Where to buy:

There are a lot of kettlebells out there, but Robert likes and uses solid, cast iron kettlebells.

Videos are cut off

A video (or videos) stop short.

Solution: Get on a strong WiFi connection and re-download all the videos.

If your WiFi connection was interrupted during video download – you might have only downloaded part of the video.

To fix this, first make sure you are on a strong WiFi connection.

Second, launch the app and tap Settings, then tap Remove All Videos, Yes, then Close.

Finally, tap Download All Videos and wait until you see they have all been downloaded. This can take up to 5 minutes.

No sound
