just a few things you are saying about us....
just a quick note to say I received the equipment.Really
impressed with the workmanship and quality -
The shot loaded dumbell looks and feels great
to use, whilst the multi grip piece and multi
hub reallly have added to my pinching and overall
grip strength training (and fun to boot).
Thanks again for the advice on equipment/training
and the time you spent making sure I got what
I was looking for.Great service.
Please note : this is an unsolicited letter
- the equipment is truly top notch and made
by a lifter for lifters.Highly recomended -
great qualityand great service.
Just received the bible it makes an excellent
addition to the kettlebells I have off you,
and it's a great tool for any bodies needs.
I will be ordering some larger bells of you
Sue & Stan,
My kettlebell was waiting for me when I got
home late last night after my work xmas 'do',
which was a great surprise, especially the day
after I sent you my email.
The delivery man had got our neighbour to sign
for the delivery, and had left a note saying
he was sorry he had to leave it in our porch
but couldn't take it back to the depot because
"it was damaging the van". Stan's
kettlebells are so cool.
I’ve been training with Kettlebells
and bear clubs for around 3 months now, having
bought an instructional DVD to get me started.
A muscular imbalance in my shoulder which has
prevented me from training with traditional weights
is unaffected and seems to be correcting itself,
and my general strength and cardio capabilities
have greatly improved. I’ve also burnt off
the fat I gained whilst unable to train due to
the aforementioned shoulder injury… Stan
and Sue have been nothing but helpful and reliable.

the delivery man wasn't impressed with carrying
25kg kb to my door, and was even more miffed
came to the 32kg kb. He didn't mind the 16kg
Superb quality, with a smooth finish. My mother

The DVD is super. I have tried some of the routines
demonstrated by Stan and his wife Sue, and am
surprised how quickly you get completely knackered
As Stan says at the beginning of the DVD - Kettlebell
training is unlike anything you have done before.
I must say - Stan, you are a strong bloke !
I am looking forward to spending a lot more
my new friends, and will keep you up to speed
Once again, many thanks to you both (Stan and
an excellent service, and superb quality items.
just wanted to write and say a big thankyou
for the kettlebells I ordered.
Its often hard to get specialist objects
like these in the UK that are good
quality but you have sorted that problem.
The cast is absolutly fantastic,
and ten times better then the other kbs
of mine. These things are going to
be around long after I am gone. I am slowly
spreading the word on KB
training and whenever people ask where to
get them from theres only one name
I use....and it aint Russian!
Thanks for the advice about interval training
with swings. I tried it the
other day and it did the job nicely. I'm
going to be mixing light swings
with heavy swings also and see how I get
All the best to you and your familly for
Received my kettlebell championship set this

Recieved dvd saturday and kb this morning.
they are fabulous - a real handcrafted looking
piece of equipment and alot smaller and
compact than the big black ones you get.
Firstly my friend and training partner Maxwell
Thompson recently received a championship set
of kbs from your good self,what beauties in a
good primitive sort of way lol.
the craftsmanship is second to none and how many
things can you buy that will truely last a liftime
for a modest ammount.
They have already been well and truely cristened
All the best..............Gary(Gazza)Hunt.
I received the kettlebell yesterday,
I thought I would drop you a note
to let you know.
Having looked at the kettlebell, I was
impressed as to the quality of
the item and the colour of the ball part
of the bell, do you have colour
coding according to weight? This could
also double as an ornament given
the quality of the finish! The handle
in particular is a good fit in
the hand and all the rough edges removed
giving a smooth rotation in the
Naturally some practice swings followed
which served to remind how good
kettlebell training is, both in results
and feel of the movements. Both
myself and my instructor and friend were
impressed with this and the way
the kettlebell will sit on the floor,
without rolling over.
Thank you for the good service and supply
of a great product that will
provide a lifetime of training ahead!
I will certainly be looking for
more items from you in the future, until
then have a great Christmas and
Hi Stan, found the UKKA web site this morning
and decided to have a blast at
your 20/20 routine that was described there. Absolutely
superb workout. My
technique was a bit sorry towards the last quarter
but definitely gave me
something to aim for in future.
Really enjoyed my kettlebell over the last
few months and it has been a new
lease of life into my training.
My wife thinks i'm bonkers though. Everytime
she looks at me i'm walking
about the house with the KB!!
Hi Stan and Sue,
Just a quick note to thank you for the championship
set of 'bells and
the gripper block, which has found a place
with my existing 16 and 25
Kg bells. As usual, the finished articles
are superbly crafted. I
love using these, and I love the look on
my students' faces as they
huff and puff and turn various shades of
purple and blue. However, I
have to say that with kettlebells, a grimace
is always replaced with
Thank you so much for the DVD. It was brilliant.
Very inspiring. I watched the whole thing straight
through and watching your and your wife having
so much fun will the bells made me quit my "rest
day" and get out into the garden to chuck
the bell around a bit. It was great watching you
toy around with the 35k and having the missus
on there was genius. This is great as I wanted
to get my Mum into the Kbs and watching you chuck
around a 35k might not have convinced her, but
having a lady on there I think she will be convinced!!!
The tips came in really handy and my C&J is
getting neater with every rep however my snatch
is still quite crusty...Im working at it! The
windmill is awesome!! That really shocked me,
gonna keep plugging away at that. And what can
I say Mrs Pike with a bottoms up press into windmill.......
I dare not try that yet.....unless I want to be
eating kb. Did you ever end up making a vid with
advanced techniques? Trying to pick up the juggling
and keep pushing the bell away from me......ahhhhh
in time and with perseverance I'll get there.
Also the outakes were brilliant. Really had me
cracking up. You and your missus are a great couple,
the wedgie moment was a classic!!!
All the best and speak to you soon
Sorry for the late reply but I was away
for a few weeks.
Yes I have received the goods and all
I can say is it is not a barbell, it is
a work of art !! The quality is so high
I am reluctant to actually use it...What
is this fantastic blue finish , epoxy
As usual, you customer orientation, integrity
and peerless craftsmanship did wonders...I
actually have friends in Cockermouth (think
it is not too far from where you are).
Next time I visit them, I will make sure
to come and shake your hand...If you need
any testimonial, let me know...
Very best regards,
I just wanted to write and say how
pleased i am with the Bearclubs you sent me.
As with the kettlebells i received from you
in the past the workmanship and service you
provide is excellent.
Dear Stan and Sue.
My name is Steve Kenny from Liverpool,
England. I recently ordered and received
from you a 20kg cast kettlebell and
your training DVD.
I'm writing simply to say thank you
and for a few reasons.
Firstly, the products are superb.
The kettlebell caused quite a stir
when it arrived at my parents address.
You can guess at some of the choice
comments made when my dad lifted the
parcel into the hall from the delivery
After watching the DVD (which is set
perfectly - more later) I tried a
few gentle routines and was ready
for the knackers yard after five minutes.
I think in your Kettlebells, I've
found a supreme conditioning tool
and long may it last.
The DVD as I mentioned earlier, is
set brilliantly. The pace of the video,
the focus on detail when explaining
the drills, and the care and attention
paid to proper form are second to
none. Kettlebell drills are not for
the faint of heart, I know that much
already, so how great it is to be
taken professionally through the movements
through the DVD.
Stan, Sue, thank you so much for a
brilliant transaction too, I can only
wish that some of the bigger companies
had your care and attention to customer
satisfaction throughout the enquiry
and ordering process.
I hope you continue to go from strength
to strength, I will be recommending
your website and products to anybody
I know in the future as the best way
forward to strength and better health.
Hi. I just wanted to say thanks to
you and your wife sue for the prompt and
friendly service. The dvd is excellent, i've
watched it abt 10 times
already, and the armblaster is great too, you
were right about it being hard
to lift heavyish weights with it...
Safe and effective Kettlebell

Martial Art Instructor
from Chris Webb renowned Personal
Trainer - London, Following the one
day seminar held by stan pike: "For
15 years I have been involved with
the health and fitness industry competing
at international level in martial
arts and running the largest personal
training company in europe 'Get motivated'
I found Stan's concise and direct
methods to teaching left me with a
firm understanding of the basic knowledge
of Kettlebells. Since the one day
training course I have transformed
not only my training routine but fitness
levels too! I have over the years
trained with world class athletes
at all levels and have no doubts Stan
is in a class of his own.. "
mate, look forward to seeing you soon
Stan, Just wanted you to know that
I have received my Kettlebell from
you and it's just great. I won't hesitate
to order more from you soon.'

Kettlebellsare the single most useful training
tool for building power I have ever used.
just a quick note of thanks from every aching
muscle fiber in my body, the bear clubs are
a true training investment.
Just a quick note to let you know that I
received the Kettlebells on Friday, and think
they are absolutely fantastic.
I opened the packaging like a 7 yr old on
Christmas day, and stated loudly to the wife that
it was the most gorgeous thing I had ever seen,
( a hard stare followed and I corrected myself
to the second most gorgeous thing !!! )
They really are a work of art stan, I immediately
had a play with the 16k and managed 10 snatches
left and right, it felt really good.
Took a bit of getting used to compared to
a dumbbell, and my wrists are feeling it a bit
today, but I really like the feel of the movement.
I have already completed 10 reps left and
right on a slow curl and press, swings 25 each
hand to upright ( but not flicked over ) , and
10 left and right with the full flick.
I have held the bells upright in the air
for 30secs each hand,
It would be great if you could send me the
training booklet that you spoke of, I would also
be very interested in the seminars and comps in
the near future, I would especially be interested
in the London or Birmingham area.
I have also got a training partner who is
interested, and I have started 2 of my female
trainees on the 4.5kg, to good response.
I will give you a buzz in a couple of days.
Just to let you know that I am getting on very
well with the KB
- these things are brilliant - it is fun to use!
Have got to grips with the
snatch now and have added a few exercises of my
own. Are there any other
KB-specific exercises you would recommend? Will
definitely be after another
10Kg and/or a bigger one in two or three month's
It arrived on Friday, and I've played with
it all weekend. Good stuff!
Also, apart from being a good fitness tool it
looks great. My wife thinks
as an object it looks fantastic, and as it's hollow
its size looks very
impressive. The one thing I would say about your
website is that it does
not show off how good they look in real life.
I know that as a training
implement people shouldn't care about how it looks
but my wife does!
I'm sure you would sell more if you showed
how good they look.
