I'm looking to buy a kettlebell or two, and I'd rather not pay shipping if I don't have to. Does anyone know of a place in Indiana that sells them?

Also, this question is either for Eugene Allen or someone who just has a good memory for the things he says, what was that brand of kettlebells that Eugene recommended fairly recently? The post was comparing them to the Dragondoor bells...

Martin-

The Gill Athletics factory is just across the border in Champaign, IL. How far away are you?

I think you're right. Looking at the bells I believe that was the one in question. Thanks.

I had no idea I was so close to Gill. I'll be going to Champaign in a couple of weeks. That's a great suggestion. Anyone have an opinion on Gill bells?

I am no expert, but Karl hooked me up with two kettlebells from Gill's and they work great.

If you're going to be in Champaign it's a no-brainer. Call in your order, get the CF discount, and pick them up. Shipping them is a huge part of the overall cost and the discounted price is about as good as you'll find anywhere. My collection of Gill's KB's is growing and I can't find anything wrong with them, I don't expect to wear them out. And Karl's a really nice guy that is totally supportive of CrossFit. (NFI in Gill, Karl, or Kettlebells)
