ABOUT: All KBC-brand bells are finished by hand, come in black and are coated in a baked acrylic, powder coated finish--easily the smoothest finish currently available. A powder coated, hand polished finish provides the perfect medium between bells that are too slippery (which is why we moved away from an epoxy coating) and a nice textured finish, but not rough so that it will irritate your grip.
INSTRUCTORS: Beyond finishes and types of kettlebells available, easily the most important aspect of KB training is the instructor--and that is where KBC excels. Kettlebell lifting is a skill that demands a bit of patience on the part of the learner--and even the fitness professional when THEY are learning from KBC! Learning the skills and sciences behind KB training is easily compared to Pilates and Yoga in this regard. We cannot emphasize the importance of personal instruction enough. KBC is the industry leader in fitness education and ALL of our instructors listed on our locator are currently practicing, certified, fitness professionals. Check out our KBC instructor locator to find an instructor in your area. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, and good luck with your training!
COLORS: As of 4/2009, we have decided to no longer manufacture grey bells.
