York Vinyl Fitbell Set
Advantages: A Wicked Set Of Vinyl Weights; Comfortable to hold; Good case
I got these vinyl weights off my mate for my birthday, she knows I prefer working out at home instead of going to the gym and because she liked the look of them herself she got me a set..... we've got the same sort of taste on things like this so she knew I'd like them!
You get 3 sets of different sized weights in black case, they are made of nice smooth plastic that is comfortable to hold and don't take up too much room because you store them in the case that they come in.
You get 2 x 1kg weights, 2 x 1.5kg weights and 2 x 2.5kg weights. The different pairs are different colours so that you can't get mixed up with what weight you're picking up, I mean that's not very likely anyway because they are different sizes but at least the colours look nice!
The bar that you hold is very comfortable, it's smoother than I thought it would be and I thought that would end up being a mistake but even though I've been using these weights for ages now they've never slipped around in my hand even when my skin has been mega sweaty during or after a good work out. That's probably because the vinyl has got a bit of a sticky feel to it, that helps me get a good grip on the weights but actually I'd prefer the bar to have ridges to help the grip instead of the sticky feeling.
The weights are balanced good, I mean and so they should be because they cost £20.00 and there are cheaper ones available! I think they're mega comfortable to hold and are brill to use when I am working out to one of my fitness DVDs at home. I started off using mainly the 1kg weights and worked up to using the 2.5kg ones, there's a shiny wallchart in the case which I haven't actually used but it gives you a good idea of how to use the weights and different exercises to do.
The case is a good idea, it's shaped so that you can fit all the weights into it..... the only trouble is that it's a bit heavy to pick up when you've got all the weights in it together! The good thing is that it keeps them all in one place and means I haven't got to pair them up on the floor and risk kicking them and busting my toe again..... I did that a couple of years ago and it killed!
Recommended... not mega cheap but a wicked set of weights that come in their own case so you haven't got weights all over the floor!
