As a personal trainer, I often find myself testing kettlebells. I even rounded up the best kettlebells for weightlifting to showcase the brands I'd use myself and the pros and cons of each.
I've been scouring Black Friday deals ahead of the event coming this November 24, and I think I've found some brilliant discounts.
When training clients, the best tip I learned for growing muscle and building strength is that free weights are the way to go. Kettlebells are super versatile and ramp up any style of workout, and you only need to pair your bells with the best kettlebell exercises to hit your muscles hard.
These Black Friday deals may not last long, so I recommend cashing in quickly on the top 5 I've hand-picked (and tested) below.
8 best kettlebells to buy during Black Friday sales
Hanisna adjustable kettlebell: was $125 now $99 @ Amazon
This adjustable kettlebell is now 21% off. The bell offers 40lbs adjustable weight, consisting of 6 plates ranging from 4.6lbs to 7.8lbs. The cast iron design and rubber base with powder coating prevent corrosion and improve durability, so you'll have no problem using these for years to come.

Kettlebell Kings powder coat kettlebell: was $126 now $99 @ Amazon
Known as Kings for a reason, the Kettlebell Kings powder-coated bell is a cast iron dream to lift with. Durable, rust-resistant and grip-enhanced due to its powder coat, you're in safe hands. If 25% off isn't enough, your purchase gives you access to free workouts!

Signature Fitness cast iron kettlebell: was $70 now $58 @ Amazon
This Signature Fitness kettlebell now has 17% off during early Black Friday sales for a limited time. This model is very similar to the Amazon Basics range, which currently isn't on sale. The bell is made from high-quality solid cast iron for reliable built-to-last strength.
Yes4All Skull kettlebell: was $88 now $69 @ Amazon
We love the design of this skull kettlebell and it's now 22% less during early Black Friday deals. This cast iron and powder-coated bell is solid and dependable with extra protection from the powder layer. The wide handle and large window size mean you'll have plenty of room to swing, grab and snatch.
Apex adjustable kettlebell: was $69 now $53 @ Amazon
Save 23% on the Apex range. We think this is a brilliant price for an adjustable kettlebell, as you can adjust the weight between 20 to 50 pounds simply by replacing the removable spacer disks with the standard weight plates. The sturdy bottom also makes the bell suitable for floor-based exercises, which we recommend.
Even the best kettlebells need to be held properly, so I recommend learning how to hold a kettlebell and the various grips to master during technical lifts.
Adjustable kettlebells divide crowds. They save space and give you plenty of weight options in one bell, but they can also be heavy-duty to move with, especially when working with overhead exercises like a press or snatch. If you don't mind sacrificing ease for a big save in cost, we recommend the investment.
For those on a budget, we've included affordable options here, but will continue to scour for more discounts as Black Friday approaches. Cheaper kettlebells can sometimes be harder to hold, so liquid chalk or grip gloves could also be a great buy.
If it's your first time buying a kettlebell, size isn’t indicative of how much the kettlebell weighs. For example, competition kettlebells are uniform with a large bell and flat handle, regardless of weight. Don't get caught out, and read our buying guide if you have any questions about what to look for and why. It’s always worth looking at the type and brand of the kettlebell first before you buy one!
