KettleWorx Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


No joke – over 50% of diet products simply don’t work. So what about KettleWorx? We looked at the ingredients, side effects, clinical research, and customer service. Then we went on to review hundreds of user comments and reviews to learn more about what people actually think. We summarized and condensed everything to get you the bottom line.

What is KettleWorx?

Firstly, KettleWorx is a workout program sold with a single five-pound kettle ball. It includes 10 DVDs and eBook. Different size balls, nutritional supplements, and programs with fewer exercise discs can be purchased. Each routine is tailored to target a specific part of the body, such as the chest, back, and abs.

The KettleWorx program was created by Ryan Shanahan. The website was first registered in 2007, leading us to believe that’s when the product was first made available to the public. We like that it encourages exercise, but read on…

Price – Yeeouch!”

The first thing we noticed is the price of the full 10 DVD set – coming in at $120. “Though there are other kits at lower price points, all of them start at $100. This is quite an expensive investment for a lot of customers,” said our Research Editor.

One unhappy user claimed, ”It’s not worth the amount of money they’re asking for.”

”I can’t believe I spent that kind of money for what I got,” warned another.

Others claim it is worth every penny.

We found one user who said, “This program is great. My jeans fit better than ever before.”

“The workouts are simple and I enjoy them, so it was worth the investment for me,” said one customer.

Poor Quality – “Users Are Disappointed”

Our next concern is reports of poor video quality and choppy workout sequences. This can make it difficult for users to follow.

”The actual workout sequences’ are terrible – choppy, he’ll do 3 reps on one side, then switch sides and do 6,” stated a dissatisfied customer.

”Most of the workouts are cut/paste sections from the other workouts – no real rhyme or reason. As I watched, I kept thinking that the DVD was either skipping, or reversing,” according to one review.

Some customers felt it wasn’t a big deal.

One offered, “This system is awesome its busts my a$$ four times a week so that’s half the time I was at the gym.”

“ I love this because it teaches me to use my kettle bells,” agreed another.

Here at DietSpotlight, we’ve learned that it takes one small thing, like poor video quality or high pricing, to stop any chance of long-term success. If KettleWorx wants to keep customers happy, they may want to take customer reactions into consideration.

The Science – “Meh”

There is science to support exercise programs to help with weight loss, but there’s no science to specifically support this particular option. No clinical studies are provided on the official website. At DietSpotlight, we want to see science before we can recommend any product.

What Users Are Saying

"”POOR JOB screening the 6 Week Body Transformation DVD set! Workouts are not even on both sides! Ex. 1 side has 3 lifts and the other has 8, really?!!! And this is on all the DVD’s! Should have been reviewed before releasing it!!!”"

"”Very motivational – great DVD for kettlebell introductions. Only problem is that they repeat a lot of the exercises. First three weeks are very motivational but got bored after that. Buy if you have a holiday coming up in three weeks!”"

"”I’ve lost 70lbs using the Kettleworks workout. I can’t tell you how much I love working out in my living room before I go to work. I am not someone who worked out or looked forward to it. That has completely changed for me thanks to Kettleworks.”"

The Bottom Line – Does KettleWorx Work?

What’s the real deal with KettleWorx? It’s an extensive kettle ball program you can do at home. It could be a great solution for people who want to exercise but don’t want to go to the gym. Our issues with price and quality leave us hesitant to make a recommendation.

If you’re ready to lose weight, we suggest adding a weight-loss supplement that contains clinically tested ingredients shown to boost your metabolism to your current routine.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year Dietspotlight Burn, We love it because our researchers weren’t able to find any negative comments or discussions of harsh side effects. And, this wasn’t surprising since we know it is made with a blend of four clinically tested ingredients that have been shown to support a healthy metabolism and fat loss.

Plus, if you’re interested, you can get a Special Trial Offer, directly from the makers of Dietspotlight Burn, which is always refreshing to see.

What You Should Know

KettleWorx is a kettle ball program designed to help people lose weight. According to the description, dieters needs only work out 20 minutes, three times a week to lose weight. The three fitness aspects addressed by the program are cardio, core and resistance. There are testimonials on the website, but there is also a link to the Infomercial designed to sell the program. Many programs with Infomercials will compensate dieters to speak highly of the program.

List of Ingredients

Kettle ball based fitness program.

Product Features

The KettleWorx program is sold as a complete set with one kettle ball. The program includes 10 DVDs, an eBook and a five pound kettle ball. The DVDs are tailored to a specific body area such as chest and back or abdominals. Additional kettle balls, nutritional supplements and smaller packages with fewer DVDs can also be purchased. Despite the great testimonials, which are common on every fitness website, there are no clinical trials or research studies supporting the claims of increased weight loss. The specific claim made by KettleWorx is three times the effect in one-third the time. When a company makes claims such as these, they need to include clinical support. The KettleWorx program includes only one kettle ball. This could mean the program is focused on beginners or women who may not be as strong as men. There is reference to buying new “Skinny Jeans” made by the creator of the program Ryan Shanahan, leading us to believe KettleWorx is for women. The KettleWorx program sells for $89.95 with a five pound kettle ball, $99.95 with a ten pound kettle ball, $109.95 with a fifteen pound kettle ball and $119.95 with a twenty pound kettle ball. All DVDs are the same across the four programs. Protein supplements are also available for use with the KettleWorx program.


  • Exercise is critical for weight loss.
  • The official website offers multiple kettle ball kits.


  • Testimonials could be paid for as part of the Infomercial on the KettleWorx product.
  • There are no clinical trials or research studies backing the claims made by KettleWorx.
  • The program can be expensive.


KettleWorx plays off the popularity of kettle ball workouts. Fortunately, using kettle balls is easy but working out at home can be hard. When starting out, many dieters choose to walk, jog or bike because these activities are the least expensive fitness programs available and offer the greatest rewards. KettleWorx is a bit more expensive than some dieters may want to spend on a new workout program. The supplement included on the official website is nothing more than a protein shake that can be purchased at any vitamin shop or major retailer. Dieters may wish to choose a fat burning supplement to use with this program or independently to lose weight.

8 KettleWorx Reviews

  •  I've started taking it, wish me a luck.
    EG (Verified User)

    I just did day 1 yesterday and it was a good start. I am a 25 year old male who hasnt really “worked out” in 5 years but have remained active in various other sports. I am 5’7 145lbs but not realy looking to lose weight. Just want to tone up and get in better shape. My wife would like to lose a few pounds so I think doing this together will be a good thing for us. Day one was difficult but not too terrible to complete. The diet for me is what will be hard. Im not use to eating healthy so hopefully I can remain committed to the diet for my own health but to also help my wife out.

  • What's next after finishing the 6-week program?
    jill (Verified User)

    Just finished the 6 week program and while I wasn’t aiming to lose pounds, I did lose inches, tone up and feel alot better about myself. My only question is now that I have finished week 6, do I start over or continue the week 6 workout each week. THey seemed to increase in intensity each week, so starting over, doesnt seem like the best option.

    • Bev

      Jill, I have been using kettlebells for almost a year, if the workout is no longer challenging to start over, just go up to the next size kettlebell. Check the prices @ walmart.com….seem to be the best online.

  •  Having issues with customer service
    Nancy Pierson (Verified User)

    I have been trying to get this company to send me authorization to return this product. They say at the beginning of each DVD if you have back or neck pain don’t use. Well they should let people know that before you buy. I am very disappointed in their customer service. The email they give you for service doesn’t work and they don’t call back when you leave a detailed message.

  •  Excellent product and it works!
    jim (Verified User)

    been using kettlebells for 2 yrs they work just bought the kettleworx program for variation to my workout excellent product it works

  •  Like the diversity of exercises
    hb (Verified User)

    I like the diversity of the exercises overall and flip between weeks to get more of a challenge. The instructor and music are boring. Sometimes he doesn’t do the same amount of reps for each side, so I count and make sure I’m doing equal reps.

  •   It's a fast workout thats pretty intense
    Todd Foster (Verified User)

    I just started the kettleworx program today, and I can see why you can do 3 times the workout in 1/3 the time. It’s because you get your butt kicked! It’s a fast workout thats pretty intense.

    The reason I decided to try the program is because the excercises are simple and you get a full body workout.

    I’m pretty out of shape so I only did maybe 7 minutes of the 20 minute workout. I liked it so far.

    I’ll write in a couple weeks to tell how I’m doing…

    • T

      Are you still doing the Kettleworx program & if so how is it working out for you?
