GYMBOX Portable Smashbell
Soft fitness power sand bag free moving weight for functional training
This smart piece of kit is a perfect hybrid, offering the simple design of a kettlebell and the durability of a medicine ball.
It’s filled with sand, meaning it can be dropped, thrown or rolled without causing damage to your floors and walls. It also means the weight can be adjusted, by removing or adding more sand, making this an incredibly flexible piece of training equipment.
Kettlebell exercises are particularly good for strengthening arms, shoulders, the back, legs and even improving cardio. They’ll have you looking leaner than James Milner in no time.
lINOC Kettle Clip Booster
Adjustable portable weight grip that is an essential part of any gym bag
While not actually a kettlebell in itself, the lINOC Kettle Clip Booster is an intelligent piece of kit for anyone who already owns dumbbells - or is considering buying some - but also wants to try kettlebell workouts.
Simply snap the product open, place a dumbbell inside and carefully close it and voila, you now have a kettlebell.
Ideal for travelling, the Kettle Clip Booster weighs a measly half a kilo and ensures you can maintain any kettlebell routines you like even if you are unsure of a gym or workout station has them.
