A kettlebell is probably one of the most versatile home gym equipment you can own, this portable piece of metal that is crafted to look like a teapot (missing a spout) can be swung, lifted, thrown, pressed, held and manipulated in various combinations that can support strength training and cardiovascular exercises. If you’re still building your home gym, this is probably one of the best equipment you need for overall body fitness.
Over the past few weeks I have been trying to look for the best kettlebell to add for my home gym setup, and this piece of metal does not come cheap, needless to say; the heavier it is, the more expensive it gets.
Through my research I found that there are a couple of options you can consider, so here’s a short list of what they are and where to find them:
Active kettlebells are probably the most professional kettlebells you can find in the market today. Trusted my coaches and gyms, they offer kettlebell weights from 6KG all the way up to 40KG and you can choose between the colorful Champion series or the all black Pro-Grade design.
Price Range: P1,950 – P9,050
Available Weight: 6KG to 40KG

YBELL is a smart piece of equipment that is a slightly modified version of the traditional kettlebell. The modification in the YBELL adds more grip options with a wider surface, enabling users it to perform additional functions compared to using a traditional kettlebell.
Use it for your overhead press or as a base to support your push-ups – the options are limitless! One downside though it that the YBELL only comes up to 12KG of weight.
Price Range: P3,000 – P5,000
Available Weight: 6KG to 12KG

3. Core Adjustable Kettlebell
CORE is definitely a space saver because you won’t have to buy different weights as it’s an adjustable kettlebell. The brand, which is distributed by Toby’s Sports, can go as high as 40 pounds (lbs) or 18KG using remove cast-iron weight plates in six increments.
If space is an issue and you need to train with variable kettlebell weights then this is definitely an option for you. At a max of 18KG, this design makes it a bit pricey compared to its competitors, but it’s a cost saver if you need to buy multiple weights for your workouts.
Available Weights: 10 lbs to 40 lbs (5KG to 18KG)
Buy them here: Tobys.com
4. Fitness & Athletics
A product from Chris Sports, the Fitness & Athletics is probably one of the cheapest kettlebells in the market (currently at 30% off), these kettlebells features knurled handles that offer better grip and is available in 4KG up-to 40KG of weight.
Price Range: P1,029 – P4,089
Available Weights: 6KG to 40KG

5. Play Hard
Looking for competition level, Iron Cast and Vinyl kettlebells? Play Hard have it all. Their kettlebells is another well sought after in the fitness market today. Featuring kettlebell weights from 8KG to 32KG with different colors to choose from.
Price Range: P1650 – P5550

6. Decathlon – DOMYOS
Last but not the least, you can also get a trusted kettlebell from Decathlon. Featuring a slightly squared handle, Decathlon’s kettlebell is designed for cross training. The downside is that Decathlon only offers a small variety of weights ranging from 4KG to 20KG
Price Range: P950 – P2750

The problem with the CORE adjustable kettlebell is that the handle is too wide and diameter of the bar too thin. I tested it and it was just so hard to grip and do proper exercises, especially overhead presses. You may also want to consider or checkout kettlebells from ENSAYO (mostly available online through Shopee and Lazada) and MusclePower (also available online but mostly through Toby’s)
