Home Dumbbell

The Home Dumbbell is designed to be floor standing, avoiding the expense and danger of installing the dumbbell way above head height, and the limitation of locations this implies. Instead only a set of simple pullies are needed above the ringer, to transfer the ringer's vertical action to the dumbbell itself.

Of course if floor space is precious as so often in modern homes, or conversley you have plenty of building headroom and want to practice in a tall open space like a tower, you can mount the dumbbell high and / or offset to the side, and use the pullies to place the ringer where ever you want. We might even be able to customise the home dumbbell box, or provide extra pullies to let you fit the home dumbbell where suits you best. Do view our gallery for examples.

  • Bell wheel with 3kg fly weight, fitted in the bell box.
