We can all agree that a pair of dumbbells is the very foundation stone of every fitness regime. They are the key to countless exercises and can help you tone almost every part of your body. With that being said, it only seems logical to invest in a pair of reliable dumbbells. But strength varies, and you always have to buy new weights. Well, that’s where the Core Fitness Twistlock steps in – it redefines the very concept of dumbbells.



​This​ adjustable dumbell from Core Fitness combines an ingenuous mechanism with the usual dumbbell look, and offers an adjustable set of weights that will change the way you work out.

The perfect space saver, Twistlock gives you the option of pre-selecting your desired weight and simply lifting the dumbbell from its cradle. No more scattered  dumbbells for every weight category, no more filled and cluttered racks, no more mess. With the Twistlock you incorporate several pairs of weights into only one pair.


The concept is fairly simple, but the mechanism might not be. Your two dumbbells rest in their cradles, each one  containing 5 separate plates on each end. By rotating the handles, you can select your desired weight, which goes from 5 to 50 lbs (from 2 to 22 kg).

Depending on the chosen weight, the rest of the weight plates remain in the cradle as you lift the dumbbell. When you want a bigger challenge, you simply place them back in the cradle, rotate the handle and lift.

This is a nifty little mechanism that really simplifies things and gives you better options in your workouts.



​Weight Range

​As mentioned previously with a simple flick of your wrist you can choose up to 50 lbs per dumbbell. Another flick of the wrist and the same dumbbell becomes anything from 5 to 50, in increments of 5.

​Seeing this in action can really show you just what the Twistlock is about, and how much money and space you can save.

​Adjustability

​Easy and simple to adjust, this pair of dumbbells allows you to seamlessly step from one exercise to another, changing weights with a flick of your wrist and proceeding as usual. It also gives you a neat option of doing challenging supersets, or immediately lowering weight to do a few final reps “until failure”.

The special “TwistLock technology” is smooth, easy to handle and simple to assemble – the crafting is perfect, as is the durability of the dumbbells themselves.

The twist lock mechanism is one of the simplest we have tested including those we tested in our round up post of the best adjustable dumbbells.

Pros

  • One of the biggest traits of these dumbbells is their durability. Perfectly built from the highest quality materials, the TwistLock is durable and sturdy and will easily last for a long time. Even though the mechanism should feel delicate, it is still nowhere near that – you can manhandle these dumbbells without any worry.                                            
  • Efficiency is also a big deal for Core Fitness, and Twistlock is the perfect example of this. It reflect to every part of this gadget – from exercises to style, to design. It is clear that a lot of thought went into the design of this.                                
  • The biggest downside to dumbbells is their taking up of space. Sometimes you need a lot of separate room only to store all of your weights. With the Twistlock, this is the past. Only two dumbbells in their separate cradles, and you’re all set. Tuck them somewhere out of sight and use your space in whatever way you want!

​Cons

  • The only downside to Twistlock that we can think of is its price. Slightly demanding for the low end budget, these weights might scare you with the price tag. But even though the price seems steep, it can actually save you a lot of money. Investing in dumbbells such as these is nothing short of a great decision.

Summary

Get ready to rethink the entire way you’ve been working out thus far. With the Twistlock from Core Fitness, everything you knew goes out of the window. No more old school exercise methods – this is the 21st century gadget and it will save your time and efforts, giving you more energy to focus on the actual workout.

No more running for plates, changing dumbbells, screwing on the guards. This is simplicity, efficiency and perfection – summed up into a pair of dumbbells!
