Add a third dimension to your water work and see how quickly you can achieve your personal weight loss and resistance training goals. Hydro-Tone Hydro Bells are top of the line water workout devices relied on by elite athletes for cross training.
Trusted By Top Notch Athletes
When Olympic athletes, those that make their mark in the water or at the gym or track, want to do some serious cross training, they turn to the Hydro-Tone Hydro Bells to make their alternative workout happen. These uniquely crafted hand buoys were deigned to be hydrodynamic resistors with three-dimensional contours that allow the shape to take advantage of the total resistive field of water. In other words, no matter which way you move, twist, or turn with these dumbbells in hand, you're going to feel a forceful and muscle-building resistance. They are made from high-impact polypropylene materials that give swimmers a high level of resistance. The bright yellow material is not only great at producing drag, but is treated to be U.V. and chlorine resistant. The pair is so durable that Hydro-Tone claims that, unless they get lost or stolen, you'll never have to buy another pair.
Like No Other
The buoyancy-neutral materials used to construct the Hydro Bells play a big factor in the devices' ability to perform. Because they neither sink nor float, the hand buoys allow for a total body workout and give exercisers a fighting chance to work more muscle-specific exercises. Other upper body training devices pale in comparison to the Hydro Bells. But if you do need a slightly less intensive set of hand buoys, Hydro-Fit has you covered with their Hydro-Fit Hand Buoys. These foam dumbbells are also designed for upper body resistance and, because of their buoyant design, are more manageable for less experienced water exercisers. Hand paddles, such as the Water Gear Aquaflex Paddles, create a slightly less challenging workout and offer more of a variable resistance routine.
Ultimate Workout Set
While the Hydro Bells are great on their own, Hydro-Tone developed another kind of training device to equally challenge your lower body as well. The Hydro-Tone Hydro Boots are full-length plastic boots that strap on the lower part of your leg and ankle. They are specifically designed to increase drag during any and all underwater movements. They fight against the water when moved forward, backwards and even laterally. By pairing the Hydro Bells with the Hydro Boots, you'll get an all-over workout that has the capacity to challenge even the most in-shape athlete. They are a great one-two punch against stubborn fat and flabby muscles. The complete set even comes with a workout DVD to ensure that you're using the Hydro-Tone products as effectively as possible.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool were immediately (and pleasantly) surprised at how much force these bells created. Because the Hydro Bells added so much drag, swimmers noted that they should only be used by people who are already comfortable in the water. They also thought that users might want to pair the bells with a flotation belt to keep from being tossed side to side as a result of the resistance. The Hydro-Tone bells' grip was both large and comfortable. And while everyone in the pool could get their hand around the dumbbells, they might not be suited for smaller persons.
The Bottom Line
For the ULTIMATE water resistance training routine, grab onto a pair of Hydro-Tone Hydro Bells for the workout ride of your life!
