Well, I have looked them over and can tell you how I feel about them. As a personal trainer, I see tons of equipment (literally) each and every month and have the opportunity to help people in determining what the best alternative for them may be. The Weider Core 100 is great for virtually anyone who wants a fantastic array of dumbbells without spending a fortune.
Among the most noticeable features that one sees when they first look at these is the stand they’re sitting on. Yep, this stand is included with the dumbbells and does a superb job at keeping all the mess off the floor. Of course, there isn’t any clutter with these types of dumbbells but the less you must bend over, the better. When you’re lifting heavy weights, it’s easier to just grab them at waist level and then begin working out. This stand makes that simple to do. It really is solid quality and is quite simple to put together once you get it home.
At first, these dumbbells look as though they are made to last and high quality. The chrome plated look is slick and certainly will site nicely in practically any home gym. After picking these up, I can pretty much tell they are made solid and will provide years of service. However, I did discover one thing I didn’t like. It’s not a huge deal and might not trouble most individuals but the weights bang against each other while using them and make a “clinging” sound.
While using these dumbbells, I get a sense a plate could fall off at any moment. I’ve read and heard about people having them fall off of these while using them, although I know they’re held into place fairly securely. I’m not saying that that will happen but just understand that it looks like they could.
With that said, I really do consider these are a great value for the price. They’ll do the job and If you are searching for that all – in – one solution in one shot, this might be the set for you.
