Rep Fitness Adjustable Kettlebells Review
The Rep Fitness Adjustable Kettlebells take up very little space in a garage gym while offering five different weight totals that are sure to push your workout to the next level.
Excellent Price Point.
Easy to operate weight selector mechanism.
A solid grip handle for even the most intense Kettlebell swings.
Available in both KG and LBS options.
Limited sizes are available.
The REP Fitness Adjustable Kettlebells have been the perfect addition for my garage gym at a time when I was searching for a space-saving option. My Rogue Mass Storage system is running out of room, and I really wanted to find something that wouldn’t take up a huge amount of space on my already crowded setup.
With three different sizes to choose from, each covering five weight settings, these adjustable kettlebells take up the space of a single kettlebell while offering the functionality of five.
Rep Fitness Adjustable Kettlebells Design
The picture above shows the Rep Adjustable Kettlebells when 20 pounds have been removed from the base. The weights are held in place by an internal nylon thermoplastic fastener which does an amazing job of keeping the weights secure, even during the most intense kettlebell swings.
The fasteners manage to help avoid almost all of the rattling and shifting I was expecting to experience while using the kettlebell.
Putting the Rep Fitness Adjustable Kettlebells back together is simple thanks to arrows on each weight, and taking weight off the bells is also easy by simply pressing down on the weight selector, turning to your desired weight, releasing the selector, and lifting up on the kettlebell.
The handle on the adjustable kettlebells features a slightly textured grip that matches the standard Rep Kettlebells that I also love and use almost daily in my garage gym. The grip works best with chalk which holds to the excellent powder coat that I’ve come to expect from Rep Fitness.
I purchased the 40-pound kettlebell, and the main system is the size I would expect from that weight. It can be a little strange getting used to swinging 10 pounds in a 40-pound size, but the balance is so well encapsulated in the kettlebells mold that such feelings quickly dissipate.
Putting down the kettlebells on my rubber flooring has never been an issue thanks to the perfectly flat bottom. If you’re worried about your non-rubber flooring, the bells also feature a rubber bottom. Just remember, dropping heavy things on solid surfaces can cause some serious damage to your flooring.
I do have one slight qualm with the Rep Adjustable Kettlebell design, the weight selector labeling is a bit hard to read, especially under the brighter fluorescent lights in my garage gym. It’s not a consideration that would ever turn me away from the product, but I do believe stronger labeling could go a long way.
Rep Fitness Adjustable Kettlebells Weight Options
These kettlebells come in three different size options and are sold as single units which means a pair will run you around $300 for the lightest set.
Here are the options currently available by Rep Fitness.
- The 16kg (about 35.3lb) kettlebell can be adjusted to 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16kg.
- The 24kg (about 53lb) kettlebell can weigh 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24kg.
- The 40lb kettlebell spans 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40 lbs.
With a very solid build factor, an awesome-looking design, and excellent overall functionality, I highly recommend the Rep Fitness Adjustable Kettlebells for anyone looking to upgrade their gym. Even if you don’t need to save space, this is a great buy.
