Weights are a staple of almost every home workout program, not only for standard use but for incorporation with regular exercise. The Tone Fitness Hourglass Shaped Dumbbells are aimed firmly at the home exerciser, and can be introduced to any strength or cardio workout. The dumbbells come in three paired sets of 2lb weights, 3lb weights and 5lb weights.

Are the Tone Fitness Hourglass Shaped Dumbbells Worth Buying?
The first thing you notice about the Tone Fitness Hourglass Shaped Dumbbells is the smooth shape and vibrant colors. The shape is ergonomic in design, intended to make the weights more comfortable in the hand, while the colors are pleasant and mean that the set doesn’t look messy even when stored in plain sight.
The quality of the weights is also a pleasant surprise. They feel secure in hand, and the covering neoprene material does a good job of improving your grip. Unfortunately, this build quality doesn’t quite extend to the plastic stand included with the set. Although it does a fine job of holding the dumbbells when fully assembled, the material is low quality plastic. Some users reported having a little difficulty in securing the stand together. That being said, the assembly is not complicated and instructions are not necessary.
The Tone Fitness Hourglass Shaped Dumbbells are not intended for people looking to supplement a hard core strength training regime. With a max weight of 5lb, these dumbbells are far more suited to those looking to incorporate weights into an aerobic workout program. The Tone Fitness website offers plenty of free exercises and workouts that make full use of the set.
All things considered, this is an excellent little set of dumbbells that would be ideal for those looking to gently increase their strength conditioning and improve their toning workout. With a total weight of just over 20lbs, the compact set is also ideal for those looking to take weights with them on their travels. For less than $30, it’s difficult to find fault with these dumbbells.
