What size /weight Kettlebells?

I want to get my DH Kettlebells for Christmas.  He talks about using them at the gym and i thought he would like them.  I dont know what weight i should get him?? Hes pretty active, plays racquetball, does insanity dvd's, etc, if that helps. Also, are any brand better then the other? 

Re: What size /weight Kettlebells?

  • You might want to figure out a way to find out what size he uses at the gym. You get them from five to 100 pounds. Or an adjustable one might be a good idea. 

    and fyi, they're expensive. I asked for one 50lb one for Christmas and it's $125. 

  • Ditto the pp re: finding out what he currently uses. My DH is also very active, spins, does P90x, etc and has metric ones in 8kg increments up to 100something # but uses the 16, 24 & 32 kg the most. I, on the other hand use an adjustable that goes from 5-20#. DH bought most of his from Christian's Fitness Factory, but his first came from Play It Again sports, a used sporting goods store. Christian's store is ~1.5 hours from our home so we went there to purchase but their prices and shipping are super reasonable. DH's larger kettlebells are CAP brand but Christian's now manufactures their own which are less expensive.
  • Ditto PPs... try to find out what sizes he uses most.  I work out a kettlebell gym and the amount of weight I uses depends on the exercise.  Shipping is pretty expensive, so you should check to see if you can find them locally.
