About Bells of Steel

We craft multi purpose, high quality gym equipment

Our Story

Kaevon started Bells of Steel in 2010 out of the need for competition-grade kettlebells. Finding them was difficult, the quality was inconsistent, and the prices were insane, so Kaevon sourced small batches for himself and his friends. Soon, requests for other equipment started to pile up.

Clearly, there was a community of home gym enthusiasts who needed access to high-quality equipment that worked with their space and budget. So, Kaevon started this company selling gear from the trunk of his $500 1991 Ford Festiva and the rest, as they say, is history.

Our journey began with a passion for fitness and a vision of creating gym equipment people actually want to use. While we’ve grown and expanded from our humble trunk roots to a team of 80 people and counting, the core values remain the same. We’re not just a company; we’re a community of fitness enthusiasts dedicated to making strength training
approachable and enjoyable for all.
