The Performance Fitness Systems adjustable kettlebell features a unique design that may appeal to folks who don’t want to work out with heavy weights.
As such, I’d recommend this adjustable kettlebell to people who want a light toning workout.
A toning or fat-burning workout is the only sort of resistance workout that the PFS adjustable kettlebell is really suitable for. Because the max weight is only around 20 pounds, it’s just not heavy enough for experienced kettlebell enthusiasts.
Easy to adjust the weight
One of the bright points of the Performance Fitness System adjustable kettlebell’s design is the ease with which you can adjust the weight. The adjustment dial quickly selects between four different weights – 5, 10, 15, and 20 pounds.
In keeping with the philosophy of use of this class of adjustable bell, the ability to quickly change weight gives you the option to keep moving during your kettlebell workouts. This is perfect for fat-burning workouts and toning routines. On the flip side, it’s not really necessary for workouts geared more towards resistance training for strength.
Most kettlebells – adjustables included – have thick metal handles.
But not this one.
The handle is relatively thick – perfect for the grip-challenging kettlebell workouts that we all love – but it’s padded. The padding is another design feature that’s intended to help folks who don’t want a purely traditional kettlebell workout but are looking for more of a cardio routine.
Workouts on DVD
The DVD contains two complete workouts – one for beginners and one for experienced kettlebell athletes. Once you familiarize yourself with these workouts, you’ll be able to get the most out of your new adjustable kettlebell. Who knows: you might even graduate to a heavier adjustable bell!
