Water Gear Resistance Bells

Designed to increase resistance and support upper body exercises while in the water, the Water Gear Resistance Bells are one of the easiest ways to add load-bearing training to your aqua aerobics routines.

Multi-Functional Training Gear

The unique material of the Water Gear dumbbells is exactly what makes them excellent weight training devices while in the water. The resisting "weight" of the bells against the buoyancy of the water creates drag and engages muscles throughout the arms, chest, abdominals, and back. Shaped like traditional dry-land dumbbells, these Water Gear Resistance Bells add more buoyancy than other similar upper body training devices, such as the brand's Aquaflex Paddles.

But while hand buoys are great for upper body exercises, the Water Gear Resistance Bells can perform well beyond basic strength training. Their foamy construction makes these hand buoys perfect for added buoyancy during deep-water workouts. Place the Resistance Bells underneath your armpits or knees to assist exercises performed in water that's well above your head. They are the perfect addition to any level of water-based exercises and perform well in conjunction with other training items. Use a bag specifically designed with pool gear in mind, such as the Water Gear Swimmer's Backpack, to keep all your water gear dry and neatly organized for your next workout.

Solid Construction

The Water Gear Resistance Bells were specifically designed to perform underwater. The closed-cell EVA foam is both durable and buoyant. The foam is specially treated so that it is resistant to chips, tears and waterlogging. In addition to the performance features, the water dumbbells' material is non-abrasive to skin and fabrics. The Resistance Bells also feature soft, comfortable gel-like grips. This helps reduce the white knuckle effect often associated with hand buoys. While your arm muscles are hard at work keeping the buoyant dumbbells submerged, your hands will stay loose and comfortable throughout the entire workout - which is perfect for those with weak grip, joint problems, and arthritis.

Varying Resistance Levels

Because not every water workout is designed to produce the same results, it's important to have a varying degree of resistance available. This allows swimmers and exercisers of all levels to take part in water aerobics and strength training. Luckily, Water Gear has a few different options to pick from. Remember, the hand buoys are sold in pairs.

The AquaGear Opinion

The AquaGear test pool got to work on their water aerobics exercises with these bells. Testers noted that the EVA foam was of very high quality, which makes these training devices last longer when cared for properly. The testers loved the gel-like feel of the grips and commented on how comfortable they were to hold while in the water. Bear in mind that these bells are extremely buoyant, especially at the higher resistance levels. Don't push yourself farther than is comfortable.

Comparing them to other, similar devices, the experts in the AquaGear pool developed a guideline to tell what resistance your water workouts required. If you have ever used the Hydro-Fit Regular hand buoys, made from premium, non-waterlogging ECO foam, they would be very similar in resistance to the 50% resistance bells (see resistance chart above for further reference). And if you rely on the Hydro-Fit Jumbo hand buoys, the Water Gear 80% resistance bells would be a perfect match for your water workout routines.

The Bottom Line

For a lightweight device that packs a heavy punch, pick up a pair of Water Gear Resistance Bells to help you achieve all of your aqua aerobics goals.

Water Bells

I was a little surprised that the color of the water bells that I received was different than depicted in the marketing information. I bought the 80% resistance and I'm very satisfied. They are well made and the handle has sufficient cushion so my hands don't get tired of holding the weights during class. I now have consistency in my work out rather than working with whatever weights are available when I begin class. The free shipping was a great perk. My water aerobics instructor recommended Water Gear products and it has been a wise choice.

Great exercise tool

I've been doing a good portion of my regular personal exercise in the water recently, and the 99% resistance bells gave me the resistance I needed for an optimal "somewhat hard to hard" workout of curls and other shoulder and arm exercises. I can use them to support myself while I do lower extremity exercises as well. Very versatile and well made.

There was a woman at the fitness center that had the high resistance bells. After she did her workout she let me use her pair. Wow! I am going to order my own pair.

I have used aqua dumb bells for years. Mine are finally wearing out so I have tried a fair few rubbish ones while trying to replace my old ones which are no longer being made. These dumb bells by Aqua gear are the best that I have found but...I don't know the secret to buying the right resistance strength b/c the maximum was too much. They are well made & durable compared to any on the market.

These are high quality well made bells. You cannot go wrong w/aquagear! Aquagear is a fantastic company to do business with & they stand behind their products 100% which is rare today.

I have enjoyed my Water Excercise Resistance Bells~ They are the 120% and they are huge. I alternate with my class teachers as we all build up to this resistance level. They are pretty tough going from the 90% resistance. They look like the same great quality that I have been using.

Elite size foam exercise bells
Written by on May 6th

I have been planning on moving up from the ultra size foam dumb bells for water aerobics for a while now. And when I did, I found your elite size ones to meet all of my hopes and expectations. Your water aerobics dumb bells are all excellent and at all sizes offered. And I write this with experience using all of the sizes that you provide, at one time or other.

Great Resistance Bells
Written by on July 14th

I use these for water aerobics class, and these bells are perfect for increasing resistance during exercise. The pool would never have enough of these larger sized “weights” and it became a hassle to try to track down a pair from the early- birds who’d stake their claim on the larger bells for their use in a later class. Now I have my own set and they perform and hold up quite well. I’m very pleased with them, and recommend them for those wanting to increase their resistance during their workouts.
