PowerBlock strives to offer the “World’s Best Dumbbell™.” Greg Olson and Carl Towley, specialty fitness equipment designers, founded the company in 1991. They set out to solve the issue of cluttered gyms that had rows and rows of dumbbells in various weights. There had to be a smarter solution that still offered the same variety to gym-goers and fitness enthusiasts, while not wasting precious floor space.
PowerBlock is the original selectorized, quick-change dumbbell. Its innovative design allows customers the luxury of selecting different weights while minimizing the space needed for such an elaborate product. Consider that the PowerBlock U-50 set replaces 20 pairs of dumbbells in the space of one pair. With PowerBlock’s quick-change technology, users can easily vary the intensity of their workout without losing momentum. PowerBlock also offers extension packages that can boost the power and usability of their weight sets. Knowing that variety in a workout is key to muscle development, PowerBlock weights also feature kettlebells and barbells. For those interested in barbells, PowerBlock offers two varieties: their EZ Curl bar and their straight bar.
PowerBlock allows users to recreate the gym environment in the comfort of their own home with benches and stands meant specifically for the PowerBlock weight equipment line. With the “World’s Best Dumbbell,” you get quality while maximizing value.
