Default Kettle Bells in Riyadh

Has anyone come across any kettle bells in Riyadh?

I tried a sports shop in the Hayat Mall, they only had regular dumb bells.

Cheers,

Suza

They are weights.

The gym on my compound is crap. It only has cardio equipment. Kettle bells are the ultimate workout.
I left mine in the UK.

I was only able to find plastic kettlebells here in Kuwait.

Last time i went to UK, i simply brought a good set of iron kettles and used my luggage allowance

Plastic sand filled ones are fine. So, if you've found them in Kuwait, there's hope for Riyadh then?!

Worst case scenrio is the large water bottles full of sand (with the handles) i suppose.

Ive tried something else thats a killer - a plastic pipe full of water (95% full)

Good thinking! There's loads of them on my compound.

I live in hope for these kettle bells. Although, judging by the obesity levels here, I guess equipment is limited!

no you can get all sorts here.

the Go Sports in Hyatt Mall is shite - they get all the stuff the Dubai Go Sports can't sell from the season before and still charge royally for it!! Real random stuff in there.

Al Faleh on Olaya is a good sports shop - also there's a Sun and Sand on Olaya. Kettle may even have a distributor here.

The gym at my compound has a set, but they're under lock n key as I think they actually belong to someone and he just stores them there. If I see him, I'll ask where he got them from.

Cheers! I got one at Al Faleh. 245 SAR for an 8kg iron one. Bit more pricier than the UK, but twas expected.

Funny that I'd never heard of them and then I saw some in a shop window . I see you've got some but if you need some more . U-Mark sport next to Panda on the Eastern Ring Road between Exit 13 and 14 heading Southbound had quite a few . It's pretty cheap there too .
