  1. Sophia

    Love the cast iron kettlebells I bought from Goldens’ Cast Iron. They are tough and good-looking too! 5 out of 5 stars.

  2. Susan

    I just purchased a cast iron Kettlebell from Goldens Cast Iron last week. It was actually a nice shopping experience. Customer service answered back pretty quick! Thanks, Goldens!

  3. Maria Smith

    These Kettlebells really made my morning and evening workouts! Very nice set of Cast Iron Kettlebells too! Getting stronger every day! Thanks!

  4. Brent

    I gotta say. One of the best cast iron Kettlebell sets I bought so far. I will recommend this product to friends. Good customer service too!

  5. Jonathan Shefftz (verified owner)

    Expanding their consumer products from cast iron grills to cast iron weights during the pandemic, brilliant move, love it: the *only* reasonably priced extensive in-stock selection of kettlebells and dumbbells!
    My only suggestion is to increase the upper weight range of the kettlebells. The dumbbells go up to 50 lb, but the kettlebells max out at 44 lb, which is quite modest for a basic kb squat.

  6. Richard

    You have no idea how long I’ve been looking for kettlebells! I can’t find kettlebells anywhere, specially made in this country. I’m sick of cheap foreign kettles. Gave my old ones to Goodwill. These Goldens kettlebells are friggin nice! Good quality. I’m pleasantly surprised! Thanks!

  7. Emma

    I bought kettlebells from Goldens’ Cast Iron a few days back. It is really an excellent quality strength training kettlebell product. I am highly satisfied with Goldens’ Cast Iron.

  8. Nancy

    It was a nice shopping experience with an impressive delivery infrastructure. Enjoyed my workout sessions with these kettlebells which I bought from Goldens’ Cast Iron.

  9. Robert

    Is the price for a set???

  10. KD (verified owner)

    Great product!!! It is hard to find weights or any other fitness equipment right now. Price is reasonable and quick delivery.

  11. Mike (verified owner)

    I have the 44lb one and it’s awesome. My other kettle bells are kettlebell king brand and the golden kettle bell has a bit less refined of a look but I’m my opinion that just means it has more character. I also like the handle on the golden bell better than the Kettlebell king handles .

  12. Hunter Smith (verified owner)

    These are really nice kettlebells. I have some Kettlebells from other manufacturers (Rogue, Kettlebell Kings), but my favorite might be my 44lbs KB from Golden: it’s study, well-built and looks good after near daily use for six months. The grip is a little thicker than some other KBs, but it’s comfortable to get my hands into it and probably helps to build grip strength. Plus, it shipped out to me and arrived very quickly.

  13. Brett Poirier (verified owner)

    Couldn’t be happier!

    I, like many others, got my Kettlebell at the start of the pandemic. I’ll be honest Golden Cast Iron was not my first choice but they had workout equipment available when no one else did and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

    12 kg kettlebell and haven’t looked back. I’m ordering my second one today so I can do two at a time in my workouts and I’m sure I’ll eventually build even further.

  14. Timothy Joutras (verified owner)

    Bought single 8, 12, 16, and 20 kg kettlebells. Like them a lot. Simple but effective. Though they will rust, so make sure to dry them if they get wet. Excellent customer service.

  15. William Bell (verified owner)

    I have bought both dumbbells and kettlebells from Goldens. These are high-quality no frills weights. They feel great in your hands and look good in a blue-collar way. Just honest good iron. That’s all you need. And the prices are very good as is the customer service. The Iron Age is definitely here!!

  16. Telly (verified owner)

    So far I’ve ordered three sets of kettlebells from these guys. The quality is top notch, and the customer service is speedy and excellent. Keep up the good work!

  17. Fitz (verified owner)

    Your Kettlebells are fantastic. I have a 12kg, a 16kg, and a 20kg … really looking forward to when you guys have some 24kgs that you’re ready to sell.

  18. Andy T (verified owner)

    Very nice kettlebell. Especially like that it is ductile iron and less likely to crack or break than those made Frome regular (grey) cast iron. Great customer service!

  19. Ben

    I’m so happy with these kettlebells. Working out with them has made a huge improvement in my life. The quality is fantastic, the handle is a nice thickness – not too big, not too small – and the width of the handle is perfect, big enough to fit both hands comfortably. I’m looking forward to getting some additional sizes at some point soon.

  20. John Simmons (verified owner)

    I have the 8 and 12 kg kettlebells from Golden. I have enjoyed these very much to build my upper body strength. My next purchase will be the 20 kg. I just order on line and pick the bells up at the office in Columbus. I live just across the river in Phenix City. By the way I am 71 years old. I also am happy to support a local business.

  21. Yury Zaverukha (verified owner)

    I love my kettlebells( 16kg). My daughter brought for me 12.25.2020. I do exercise even in my 62 years old .
    I’m feeling well. Highly recommended for everyone.

Who is Goldens' Cast Iron?

Today, Goldens’ Cast Iron produces consumer cast iron kamado grills, fire pits, kettlebells sets and dumbbells so they will outlast and outperform any other competitor product on the market! Goldens’ Cast Iron is the consumer division of Goldens’ Foundry and Machine Company. A 5th generation family-owned company with nearly 140 years of American-made industrial cast iron experience, Goldens’ Foundry and Machine Company manufactures durable, top quality machined ductile iron castings for national and international companies. In the beginning Goldens’ made consumer products to support local farmers as well as industrial products to support the textile mills. You can still find our 19th and early 20th century sugar cane mills in use on farms today! With the Second World War, Goldens’ answered the call to support the war effort and began producing steering engines for the Liberty Ships. After the war, Goldens’ focused on its industrial customers. A few years ago, we recognized that American consumers needed American-made consumer products. That realization led us to reopen our consumer division as Goldens’ Cast Iron.

What is the history of Kettlebells?

So now you know about the iron used to make our kettlebells made in America, but what about the history of cast Iron kettlebells themselves. It’s time to take a trip back to 17th century Russia. (You may want to bring a jacket…and a weight belt). Back then, American made kettlebells were used as counterweights on large weighing scales. Those scales were used to weigh dry goods at the market. 2020’s best made in America kettlebells were essentially cannon balls with handles. You had to be strong to lift those USA made kettlebells so the strongest Russians would lift kettlebells while working. (The weaker Russians would also become the strongest Russians by lifting the kettlebells! Of course, they had to show off a bit and that’s when weightlifting was essentially born. By the 19th century, that showmanship eventually turned into strongman events when the strongest would display their physical strength. Those events evolved into organized weightlifting, and the Russians still lead the world in national strongman competitions which have lasted to this day.

Kettlebells are traditionally made of cast iron. Here’s a brief history of one of mankind’s most important manufacturing materials. Cast iron has been around since the 5th century BC. From the beginning, cast iron was being made into pots, pans, weapons and architectural components. As iron working evolved over the centuries, manufacturers modified the process and the metallurgy to create a family of useful types of iron including white iron, gray iron, malleable iron, ductile iron, wrought iron and, of course, the varieties of steel. The evolution of the types of iron materials is a testament to the versatility of this very important material. In 1882, as the industrial age was growing throughout the United States, Goldens’ Foundry and Machine Company was established in Columbus, Georgia. More than a century later, the metallurgists, engineers and foundry men and women are producing the latest varieties of modern cast irons, from ductile irons (renowned for their steel-like properties) to special heat-treated and austempered irons.

As cast iron kettlebells made the trip from the market to the gym, kettlebells began to be used for strength training, in a similar fashion to dumbbells. Athletes quickly realized the many benefits kettlebell training offers. These days, cast iron kettlebell is used for dynamic resistance training, offering cardio and strength endurance, balance, agility and movement. This functional fitness training application differentiates cast iron kettlebell training from the simple muscle isolation training you get with dumbbells and barbells. Kettlebell training involves tempo-style kettle swinging, often in a pendulum-style movement. As a result, the body’s core must work harder to stabilize in reaction to the gravitational pull from the iron kettlebells. That dynamic range of motion builds your core muscle and provides you with an amazingly functional, total body workout. It also increases both strength and endurance!

What are best type of Kettlebells to buy?

When buying cast iron kettlebells, look for the sizes that best suit your needs. Heavy kettlebells don’t always mean a better workout. For some movements, you will want lighter weight kettlebells. For others, you will go with heavier cast iron weights. Before you buy cast iron kettlebells, research the type of training that best suits your needs. There is a wide range of kettlebell workouts and kettlebell training plans. We recommend that you choose wisely, based on your abilities to get the best results and avoid injuries. Cast iron kettlebells and sets can range from as small as 17.6 pounds (8kg), to newer sizes, to be released soon, as large as 79.3 pounds (36kg). Buy a range of cast iron kettlebells that will meet all of your training needs. Don’t try to overdo your training. Start small and work up to larger sizes. At present, our sizes range from 18, 26, 35 and 44 lbs. Remember, our American-made cast iron kettlebells are there forever! Build up to the heavier weights gradually.ce!
