Anywhere to buy KB near DC?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask or not, but here goes.....

I have been looking to get some KB for myself, but I am trying to avoid the shipping costs. I have called the local play-it-again sports and have had no joy there. Does anyone know of a retailer near DC (I live south of DC) that sells KB?


Just curious,

Garrett

Re: Anywhere to buy KB near DC?

Where you at this weekend's CF cert and got hooked by Mike Krivka on kettlebells? :-)

Sorry, man. I don't know of any local places that sells them. I've never even found them on craigslist. However, i just found a inexpensive internet source for KBs, Lifeline USA - http://www.lifelineusa.com/products....&productid=129

$72 including shipping for a 16kg KB. i just got 2 of them and they seems like they are pretty good. mike approves.

Re: Anywhere to buy KB near DC?

David,

thanks for the heads up on lifelineusa.com. I was not at the Quantico cert, I found out about it too late and it was sold out.

Anyway, I think I am going to have to go to the internet to get some. I dont want to, but I guess there are some places with reasonable shipping.

BTW, I saw a 20Kg KB on craigslist this week, might still be there if you look at the DC list! I thought about getting it, but I want a 16 first.

thanks again,

Garrett

Re: Anywhere to buy KB near DC?

Also, Believe it or not I recently saw 'Go Fit' KBs at ****'s sporting goods store in the local mall! Not sure about feel/quality in a workout, but they seemed good to go to my layman's eyes.

--I just posted this and saw what it did to the name of a sporting goods store. Rather Orwellian...

John,

I think I know where you are talking about. I saw they had them on their website, but when I called them, the young man who answered didnt even know what they were. I may try and stop by my local store over the weekend.

thanks for the heads up!

Garrett

If you buy, or someone else already has bought, the KB from D ick's Sporting Goods, please let me know how they fare in a WOD...
I want to get some smaller one to train my wife and her friends, but don't want to buy garbage...

Ask for Andrew Sarmast at Leisure Fitness in Annapolis. He can order any size that you need and not have to pay shipping. Telling him I sent you his way.They are in #'s not kg. Hope this helps.

Dale, Thanks, I hope that your info helps someone else, as I live too far from annapolis to take advantage if that. After traffic and time, it would be easier to spend the money on shipping!

Thanks,

Garrett
