About Dumbbell Fit

Welcome to my website, Dumbbell Fit.

So, why the name? Because in reality all you need to get fit, tone up, build muscle and burn fat is a decent set of dumbbells. Arguably almost every piece of resistance training equipment and its ultimate effect on the body – be it free weights, machines, resistance bands and the like – all stem from the dumbbell, which, in its earliest form dates back to Ancient Greece over 2000 years ago.

Over time this highly functional and versatile piece of equipment has evolved and developed into many other, alternative bits of kit which essentially all aim to achieve the same result the dumbbell was invented for – producing tension on the body. It’s this tension that will have you either building muscle, toning and firming up, burning fat, increasing your cardio endurance, or a combination of all four.

With so many alternative options to the dumbbell now available it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge and include them all on my site. When all’s said and done, how you work out, and what you work out with, is absolutely a matter of preference. It’s my job therefore to help you find what that is whilst offering advice, tips and some of my personal recommendations along the way, all based on my 20 years experience of resistance training.

A Quick Bit About Me

Fitness and weight training has been a passion of mine since I first picked up a pair of dumbbells as a shy, awkward 17-year-old, and has been an important part of my life ever since. The confidence it’s given me and the knock-on effect it’s had, in all areas of my life, has been immeasurable.

With around two decades of experience lifting all kinds of weights and resistance bands – in both large commercial gyms and at home with limited space – I’ve come to learn what works depending on factors such as budget, room size, and ability level – whether your goal is to build muscle, burn fat, or increase endurance and get fitter overall.

Let me help you

Not everyone wants to build a tonne of muscle – we all get into fitness for different reasons. For some of you, it could be about adding some extra resistance to your cardio sessions to help tone and firm, or perhaps you’re looking for some weights more suited to help with rehab exercise, post-injury?

At Dumbbell Fit I’ve done the hard lifting (excuse the pun) for you and laid out, clearly and comprehensively, the best equipment available for any home (or gym) workout – whatever your goal, fitness-level or budget. Then I make recommendations, based on my own experience and those I trust, on the products I feel are best suited using a range of trustworthy and industry-leading companies.

But Dumbbell Fit is not just about the equipment, so you’ll also find help and advice on nutrition, goal setting, staying well and picking the right workout plans to suit your needs and goals, ensuring you get the most out of the effort you put in.
