KettleWorx Review - Does This Exercise Tool Really Work?
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.
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 Leptigen, 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 Leptigen, which is always refreshing to see.

Product FeaturesThe 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.
