Neoprene dumbbells (3lb. pair, 5lb. pair, and 8lb.)
Gold’s Gym Dumbbell Power Set
Create a Healthy Routine
Just having dumbbells around might not help you achieve toned muscles or win your family’s annual sibling arm-wrestling tournament; you’ll need a routine, too. This dumbbell set comes with an instructional DVD that lays out detailed exercises, and a chart to track your workout progress.
These dumbbells are made with a durable neoprene material that won’t scuff or scratch hardwood floors. The weights can also be easily stored on the included tray, which keeps them in place when tucked under beds and couches or stored in closets.
Given my age and frail body, my doctor reminded me to do light weights to build my strength to prevent possible osteoporosis. Saw this weight set which came with video and work out chart on how to use the dumbells so it was an automatic instinct to buy! Just started using it!
The dumbbells are really nice. Unfortunately, the plastic tray was badly broken and could not be replaced by either Groupon or the manufacturer. The only options were to keep the set as-is or return it. Since I bought this particular product especially for its low-profile stand, I decided to return the whole set. As in the case of beabernardo, who also had a broken tray, it looked like the set I got had been returned and resold. I hope sets with broken trays are being taken out of circulation and not being resold.
The platform under the dumbbells is very cheap and flimsy and broke the first time I tried to just slide the set a few inches over from where I'd put it down. I didn't even lift it. Given the weight of the bells, the platform should be much sturdier!
