Dumbbells & Dumbbell Sets

Dumbbells & Dumbbell Sets

Man has an extensive history with dumbbells.  In ancient Greece, athletes trained with ‘halteres’, which were the predecessors of modern dumbbells as we know them today.  These were used for both lifting and as a device to assist in maintaining equilibrium during the long jump which was a popular event of the Olympic Games of old.

Nowadays, you don’t have to be in Greece to enjoy a set of quality dumbbells-or the Olympic games for that matter.  York Barbell has been finely crafting various styles of dumbbells for almost a century, and the York Barbell Club weightlifting team produced four decades of world and Olympic champions that trained with York, including Bill Good, Joe Miller, Tony Terlazzo, John Terpak, Stan Stanczyk, and Tommy Kono. 

York Barbell offers dumbbells in all shapes and sizes, including multiple Fitbell styles for lighter workouts such as Yoga and Pilates to heavy duty commercial grade dumbbells that can train as hard as you do.  With attractive styles and finishes and only the finest of quality materials, you simply can’t go wrong with a set of York dumbbells.

Through the years, York has flexed its muscle-getting a reputation for innovation with such design elements as the shortened handle in the Pro Style dumbbell, which results in less hand travel and more control.  It is not only the design of the dumbbells, it is the quality and attention to detail put into each that has produced some of the best innovations within the industry like the fish-tailed handles featured in the Pro Hex and Legacy dumbbells, which prevent head detachments-even with heavy use.

Whether you are a professional or amateur lifter, York Barbell has a dumbbell that will spark the spirit of your inner Olympian, and keep those fires of Mount Olympus burning for years to come.
