We "dressed" the standard iron Kettlebell weights in a layer of hard plastic. What for? There are several reasons, but if we emphasise only two: iron kettlebells can chip with use and on the surface, scratches and damages appear. This, of course, spoils the image of a tidy gym, but not only this – such pieces of equipment can damage the floor, other pieces of equipment or the trainee, which we certainly do not want.
The second reason is the (in)experience of users: for beginners, these weights are less intimidating and it is better for them to have a firm grip on the weights. The trainees can also more easily notice if they are performing the exercises correctly, which is of upmost importance when it comes to kettlebells.
