Co-founder Chef Greg Grossman will continue to innovate menu offerings and expand Kettle bell Kitchen's verticals for healthy eating, weight loss, muscle gain, and sports performance.

There is no trace seam on the handle which means you won’t hurt your hands while using the Iron Bull Kettle bell. Already it had been dealing with low inventory levels across its home gym lineup because the virus had temporarily shuttered factories in China.
Since then, the 55-person company has largely been reorganized to turn away from professional gym gear and focus only on home exercise products. But kettle bells are part of a complicated and fragile supply chain, one that's a microcosm of a global economy currently in crisis.
Rogue, which did not respond to an interview request for this story, captioned the post to its two million followers with: “We know we are behind, and we are working around the clock to clear the backlog.” Most of the kettle bells that you could have ordered before March 13 were; it's probably not surprising that, in 2020, there are few American foundries eagerly pumping out large bulbs of iron.
But Rogue, in a moment of massive demand and with a supply chain in chaos, has turned to Rhode Island's Cumberland Foundry, a company with roughly 40 employees. Those Instagram pictures it posted were from Cumberland, a tacit acknowledgment that, at least temporarily, the system has shifted: Rogue needs professionally crafted kettle bells wherever it can get them, even if it has to pay higher, American-sized wholesale prices than what they and other companies (including Rep Fitness) are getting overseas.
Cumberland isn’t automated, and its president, Tom Lucchetti, estimates that it takes a full day to produce 40 to 50 kettle bells (with Rogue handling last steps, like painting the bells). I just saw the news report that the Patriots sent a plane to get a million paper masks from China.
In Georgia, George Boyd Jr. is the vice president of Golden's’ Foundry and Machine Company, one of the largest foundries left in the U.S. Golden's’ makes long-haul truck parts, in addition to commercial items like cast-iron grills, which Boyd says are “selling like hot cakes” right now. Golden's’ dabbled with limited runs of dumbbells once upon a time, but stayed out of the kettle bell business out of respect to their foundry friends up north.
Golden's’ dumbbell experiment didn’t last, and Boyd is hesitant to take on fitness equipment-related projects without a commitment from the companies involved that they wouldn’t bolt back to China when the pandemic subsides. “A lot of large American buyers say they care about everything, but at the end of the day, all they want to know is piece price,” Boyd says.
Boyd hopes the sold-out kettle bell saga will open consumer’s eyes about the dismal state of manufacturing, amongst many other industries, in the U.S. and around the world. “With these massive disruptions, I hope more people are thinking about, well, do we really want to have a logistical supply chain that stretches over half the globe ?” he says.
UPDATE: This piece originally misstated the number of kettle bells that Cumberland Foundry can produce in a single day. From Zoom raves to Instagram orgies, coronavirus isolation has meant a boom time for sex via screen.
The kettle bell could date back to Ancient Greece, when some exercise implements were described as having a handle, but Russia in 1704 referred to the fitness tool as a girl, meaning “handle bell.” In modernity, the cast-iron or steel-made and usually vinyl- or rubber-coated kettle bell is standard in most gyms and can be purchased for home use for around $20 to $100, depending on weight variations and brand. • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, toes turned out slightly and, gripping the sides of the kettle bell handle with both hands at chest height, do repetitions of squats to work buttocks, quadrilaterals and hamstrings.• Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent, hinging at the hips with back flat and shoulders back.
Now, looking straight ahead, bend your knees and start to sink down into a squat as you extend your free arm and hand out (this will keep you balanced).” Stand behind kettle bell with feet slightly wider apart than shoulder width.
Extend arms downward and grasp kettle bell handle with both hands using overhand grip. Lift kettle bell off of floor and pull forearms against inner thighs while keeping hips and knees bent with low back taut.
As kettle bell approaches lower position, fold at hips while bending knees. Forearms make contact with inner thighs permitting kettle bell to swing back under hips.
