The main difference between the SandBell® and SteelBell® is the density and size per weight. The diameter of a 4 lb. SandBell is nine inches, and a nine inch diameter SteelBell® weighs 10 lb. A 150 lb. SteelBell® is the same diameter as a 50 lb. SandBell. Get the point? Another difference is the increased amount of dynamic shifting steel shot inside the bell. The steel shot moves more like liquid than sand, thus shifting and moving more quickly. Due to the combination of inertia and the shifting steel shot, a 20 lb. SteelBell® feels and responds like a much heavier weight – sort of like the difference between picking up a sleeping child and one that is flailing. This shift challenges balance, coordination, core response and stabilizing muscles, simultaneously.
The SteelBell® is safer, like the SandBell. It makes for a great kettlebell and medicine ball replacement because you can swing or throw the SteelBell® with maximum effort with less risk of injury to yourself or others. No more worries about hitting knees or ankles or jamming a finger.

Led by trainer Bo Hickey, the TRX/Kettlebell class involves high-intensity interval training using—you guessed it—TRX Suspension Trainers. What it doesn’t include, however, are kettlebells. Students use the lesser-known Steelbells, round sandbags that weigh anywhere from five to 200 pounds. “Any kettlebell exercise can be performed using a Steelbell, explains Huling, and they offer more versatility (and keep the studio’s hardwood floors scuff- and dent-free, of course).” Fitness Class Review: TRX/Kettlebell Class With Reformation Fitness The studio brings TRX, Steelbells, and Pilates to Shaw.
