We are very proud of all the products we are able to bring to the market, especially those designed and manufactured by us and our range of dumbbells are no exception. Our Urethane Dumbbells and SBX T600 Dumbbells have passed rigorous testing and have been awarded TÜV SÜD certification to prove they are best in class, and we couldn’t be more proud!



TÜV SÜD certification is awarded by the TÜV SÜD Group – one of the largest Independent Certification Organisations in the world, established in 1866. They have 600 offices around the world and employ over 16,000 staff. They test and certify a huge range of products from mobile phones to cars to children’s toys. Until recently, professional dumbbells were not on their list.


Escape Fitness wanted to have some official way of making our dumbbells stand head and shoulders above the rest and TÜV SÜD certification was the obvious choice as it is very popular with customers around the world. We approached the UK team and got the ball rolling.


Considerable time and money has been invested by both Escape Fitness and TÜV SÜD Group to create a programme and equipment to carry out the testing and both our Urethane and SBX T600 Rubber Dumbbells passed with flying colours. This new testing equipment and programme creates a new benchmark for dumbbells and we are very proud that two of our dumbbells now bear the TÜV SÜD mark. We’re not stopping there though. We will be sending more Escape Fitness products to the TÜV SÜD Group which means our customers can be comfortable in the knowledge that they are buying quality products from us.


As well as testing the dumbbells themselves, to gain TÜV SÜD certification, the factory they are manufactured in has to be inspected by TÜV SÜD Group on a yearly basis. This is to make sure the products are continually made to the same standard instead of a ‘gold product’ being used to pass the testing. The factory, its staff, the equipment used and the procedures are all checked and inspected with the aim of ensuring ongoing product quality. Not only did the factory we use pass this section too, but TÜV SÜD Group has said we are already doing over and above what they would expect!
