The K2 "Kettlebells" are guaranteed to be the 'best kettlebell' you've ever used. Kettlebell Training has never been so easy on your hands.
The K2 Performance Series Kettlebells are perfect for any 'kettlebell workout'. Whether you are adding kettlebell training into you your Crossfit, Body Building, or Power-lifting routine or putting together multiple kettlebell exercises to form a kettlebells workout routine, the K2 is the 'kettlebell' you want. With the K2's symmetrical clean finish, perfect grip diameter, and black powder coated finish, Kettlebell workouts don't have to be hard on your hands any more. Whether you sweat or not you will need little to no chalk to hold a firm grip.
Over the past few years, we have seen an exponential growth in Kettlebell workouts for women, that is why we have focused so much on the feel of the kettlebell. We wanted both men and women to feel comfortable with a CFF K2 Kettlebell regardless if the exercise is a swing, snatch, clean, pistol squat, Turkish getup's, or training for your RKC Certification.
We're so sure our K2 Performance Series powder coated kettlebells are best in class, we back them with a lifetime warranty.
Christian’s Fitness Factory K2 Powder Coat kettlebells are designed to be an all around no-nonsense fitness tool that can be used with or without chalk. The feel of the kettlebell was a prime consideration for the design and the care that was taken with it definitely shows.
The finish is very clean and slightly rough, with one of the most durable powder coatings I’ve seen. The combination of the finish and coat result in a handle that will hold a lot of chalk, but you’re probably not going to need it unless you sweat buckets.

In plain terms, the K2 is a workhorse. It’s an old-school kettlebell with a modern minimalist approach. It gets the job done, and done well.
|Top Quality Materials||To produce the highest 'quality kettlebell', you must first start with the best materials. That is why CFF only uses first run iron ore (not scrap).|
|Smart Casting||Single mold, gravity fed casting is the best way to produce the most even kettlebell. A one piece cast design assures the integrity of the kettlebell - especially the handle. This leads to a surface free of putty, patches, or plugs. Defective bells are thrown out.|
|Precision Ground||After the first cleaning of the kettlebell, the surface is precision ground to remove all casting marks. Special attention is paid the underside of each kettlebell, ensuring a smooth finish. Typically, it is the lack of attention in this particular spot increasing the chance of your hands blistering. (The bottom of the kettlbell makes your hand blister.)|
|Machined Flat Base||A wide, flat, even base ensures confidence in the kettlebell's stability when performing exercises like 'renegade rows'.|
|Surface Preparation||To create the perfect, void free surface, our 'kettlebells' go through a second stage cleaning process, confirming the surface of the bell is smooth, ensuring the handle has excellent grip, and removing any casting imperfections.|
|Final Finish||Black powder coated finish is to perfection. Smooth, yet enough grip chalk holds well (though unnecessary). The handle is wide enough for two-handed movements, but not so wide it's awkward & unbalanced when performing one-handed movements.|
|Warranty||We end with our stamp of approval, backed by a limited lifetime warranty; as long as you own it, it’s covered - satisfaction guaranteed.|
|Packaging||Each kettlebell is carefully packaged in a foam mold designed for its particular size and then double boxed to assure it gets to your doorstep in the condition it left our factory.|
With so much material on the web, who can you trust or where can you go to learn about kettlebells?
First 'Kettlebells Workouts' or 'kettlebell Exercises' are not just for men; there are tons of 'kettlebell workouts' available for women too.
Second, there are a few basic moves you will learn first when starting off with kettlebells
Once you learn these, you can get into more advance kettlebell routines, like a kettlebell circuit, kettlebell Ab exercises, kettlebell pistols, or even a kettlebell challenge
Last, for some references on how to use a kettlebell properly, I would suggest looking for a local kettlebell class in your area. If there are no classes available, go on line and do a search for 'Mike Mahler', 'Steve Cotter', 'Pavel Tsatsouline', or 'Kelly Scott'. You can find them on YouTube as well as on there own sites; they are all well respected in the kettlebell industry

In this article, Kelly will be answering questions, including how to start using kettlebells, how to use kettlebells safely, how your kettlebell workout should be, and what kettlebells are right for you.
Kettlebell training is not something that you can jump into without proper instruction. Anyone getting started needs to find good, qualified instructors. Understand that not every personal trainer is well-versed in kettlebell training. It takes a lot of daily practice to craft the perfection needed to teach the functional movement required when using kettlebells.
I recommend starting by learning the 'kettlebell swing'. There is no substitute for personal instruction from a certified instructor. If your curious about what’s covered in a beginner kettlebell lesson, watch my perfect swing series. (VIDEO SERIES) Learning the 'Kettlebell Swing' is a good start to understanding the foundational technique of kettlebell ballistics. It covers the basics of Russian Hard Style training: Breathing, Tension and the Hinge Movement.
'Kettlebell training' is serious business. We condense the amount of time required for exercise, because we lift with great intensity and effort. The only way to do this safely is to approach each workout with the same mindfulness and respect that you would a high risk activity. How?
'Kettlebell workouts' provide one of the most effective total body workouts in the shortest amount of time. A complete 'kettlebell workout' includes strength, cardio, and flexibility in a single session. The unique shape of the kettlebell enables an endless variety of movement pattern so transitioning between moments is seamless and fast.
Due to the shape, 'kettlebells' are some of the most effective pieces of 'fitness training equipment' available. The location of the weight in the kettlebell recruits more stabilizer muscles and works the targeted muscles through a wider range of motion. Isolation exercises done with dumbbells or barbells do not hit those stabilizing muscles to the same degree. Most of the exercises utilize the whole body; the legs, hips, abdomen, back, arms and shoulders in coordinated movement, so you get more work done in less time. For this reason you can achieve an effective total body workout in as little as 30 minutes.
Kettlebells are an investment that will last a lifetime. Start with a weight that you can comfortably press overhead at least 5 times. Your set will grow as your skill and proficiency improves. For most women an 8kg (18lb) kettlebell and for men - 16kg (35lb) kettlebell are good starting points.
If you are able to purchase a set of three initially, you will have many more options: Women - 8kg, 12kg, 16kg, Men - 16kg, 20kg, 24kg.
In time, you will probably want a pair of each of these bells for 'double kettlebell' work.
If you need a heavier weight for some exercises, you can grasp two kettlebells in one hand to increase the weight for certain movements.
Since almost every movement with a kettlebell requires lifting it with your arms, your arms are going to get a lot of work no matter what 'kettlebell movement' you do. This is one of the great things about 'kettlebell training', we focus on movements instead of individual muscle groups.
That being said, my favorite upper body movements with kettlebells are the clean and press and the staggered stance row.
The clean and press primarily works your shoulders, but the movement also works your traps, triceps, middle and lower back, abdominals, glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves.
The staggered stance row primarily trains your biceps, forearms, and back.
I demonstrate these movements in my ForeverStrong Full Body 5 Strength Movements video below.
'Kettlebells' are adaptable to men and women of all ages and levels of conditioning, so as you get stronger and more fit there are endless workout progressions to challenge you and keep you from hitting a plateau. It’s a perfect exercise tool that allows you to take your workouts from the studio to your home, the park, or beach.
To design your own full body workout in 30 minutes or less, I recommend watching the ForeverStrong guide to full body training. This will help you understand how 'Full Body Training' methods compare to traditional Body Part Training. It will also provide a guide for creating your own 'Full-Body Workouts' using kettlebells and other training tools.
