YBell wins for outstanding versatility

LOS ANGELES – Feb. 22, 2022 – YBell Fitness, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Y Bell Group Pty Limited, adds to its growing collection of accolades with two new 2022 honors: the Men’s Health Home Gym Award, and for the second consecutive year, the Women’s Health Fitness Award. Both distinctions recognize the patented 4-in1 YBell®.

“We are thrilled that leading fitness experts continue to recognize the diversity of our highly effective products,” said Mark Livingston, vice president, worldwide sales and marketing at YBell Fitness. “Each award that YBell Fitness receives further acknowledges our innovation and reinforces our dedication to exercisers and the fitness industry.”

Created by veteran Australian fitness trainer Aaron “Az” Laurence, and professional industrial designer, Michael “Hop” Hoppe, the YBell is a 4-in-1 handheld training tool that facilitates dumbbell, kettlebell, dual-grip medicine ball, and push-up stand exercises for people of all abilities.

YBells are offered in a full range of weights, with either a neoprene covering or powder coating for extra durability. The classic YBell Neo Series comes in weights from 10 lb / 4.5 kg to 27 lb / 12 kg; the new YBell Arc Series includes weights of 2 lb / 1.1kg to 7 lb / 3.5kg; and the new YBell Pro Series currently offers weights from 31 lb /14 kg to 44 lb / 20 kg, with lower weight denominations introduced later this year.

Men’s Health 2022 Home Gym Awards

These editor-tested, expert-approved recommendations include home weights, garage gym gear, connected fitness, bodyweight training tools, cardio and conditioning tools, exertainment solutions, recovery tools, and training apps. In the Best Home Weights category, the YBell won the Most Versatile Dumbbell Alternative.“When is a dumbbell not a dumbbell?” reviewers asked. “When it has four different gripping points that allow you to swing it like a kettlebell, grasp it with two hands like a med ball, stabilize your body on it like a pushup stand, and, oh, do dumbbell exercises, too.”Noting the valuable versatility of the YBell for any home gym, the review team concluded, “YBell is ready for any workout you could possibly dream up.”

Women’s Health 2022 Fitness Awards

Women’s Health once again recognized the YBell, naming the YBell Neo 4-piece Starter Kit, which includes pairs of 10-pound and 14-pound YBells, the Most Versatile Weights in the Strength Heroes category."I was blown away at how functional these weights were, thanks to the unique shape and ergonomic design," pointed out Jacqueline Andriakos, health and fitness director at Women’s Health. "They've made me excited to strength train daily from the comfort of my living room.”Promising to “help you find your sweat spark,” the 2022 awards included Strength Heroes, Cardio Crushers, Low-Impact Greats, Accessories for All, Outdoor Must-Haves, and Recovery Rulers.
