Dumbbells from Escape Fitness

The right dumbbell range immediately sets the tone of a health club. Dumbbells are one of the most popular pieces of gym equipment, so it's essential for owners and managers to have the right choices for their members.

No matter who your target member is, you need to ensure your free weights cater to their unique needs.

Edgy and tough or bright and appealing, from serious strength gyms to boutique studios – choosing the right dumbbell set is not straightforward. It has to provide the right opportunities for everyone to benefit from training with free weights.

Can you spot a dumbbell from a smart one?

According to industry reports, dumbbells are now one of the most popular pieces of fitness equipment in commercial fitness facilities. As a company that has manufactured and sold over 9.5 million kilograms of dumbbells to 80 countries, we have learned a thing or two about making dumbbells. In the interests of raising quality standards for free weights and increasing their popularity, we have developed a report and would like to share with you some of the trade secrets and issues surrounding the production of dumbbells that some manufacturers would prefer remain secret.

ISSUE 1: MANUFACTURING FACILITY.
When manufacturers source products from third party factories they have no control over the factory conditions or production processes. The quality of the final product can be a lottery. TÜV SÜD certification means getting a top quality dumbbell every time.

ISSUE 2: THE DUMBBELL HEAD.
The term 100% virgin rubber is used frequently, but this wouldn’t work well on a dumbbell. Additives are required, however some additives lead to poor performance and cracked rubber, so be sure you choose the right material for your dumbbell head.

ISSUE 3: THE HANDLES.
The steel handle is an important part of the dumbbell. Chrome plating protects the handle against rust, but this is timely and complicated, and many suppliers take shortcuts leading to the chrome flaking which can cause splinters in users’ hands.

ISSUE 4: THE CORE.
Beneath the exterior of the dumbbell head is a cast iron core. Unfortunately some manufacturers mix cast iron with metal scrap to cut costs. This leads to composition inconsistencies and can cause weight variations and a loss of balance in the head.

ISSUE 5: THE DESIGN OF THE DUMBBELL.
As more and more members start to use them, it’s important to innovate and develop dumbbell ranges that appeal to heavy lifters as well as free weight beginners and everything in between.

ISSUE 6: A MEANINGFUL WARRANTY.
After a rigorous testing process, we are confident giving our Urethane Dumbbells a three year warranty and our Escape SBX Rubber Dumbbells a two year warranty to give club owners and managers complete peace of mind.

Our Urethane and SBX Dumbbells have undergone rigorous testing and have been awarded TÜV SÜD Certification to prove they are among the best in class. TÜV SÜD Certification is awarded by the TÜV SÜD Group – one of the largest independent certification organisations in the world. Considerable time and money have been invested by both Escape and TÜV SÜD Group to develop a testing programme that has created a new benchmark for dumbbell quality. Clubs can be confident that their investments will be manufactured to the highest standards in the industry.
