How cool would it be to upgrade your home-exercise routine with digital technology? This Prime Day, Amazon can make it happen. NordicTrack's latest innovation is a game changer in the digital training scene, and we think it's worth the investment. NordicTrack iSelect Adjustable Dumbbells can automatically switch weight levels with a command through an Alexa-supported device. Right now, they're only $299 (down from $429). It's just one of the many, many, many unbeatable deals to be had as the year's biggest retail blowout winds down. Speaking of heavy lifting: "Deals are especially good this year as retailers offload overstock ordered earlier in the pandemic when consumer spending was high."
These weights go from 5 to 50 pounds...with just the sound of your voice.
Using these iSelect dumbbells couldn't be simpler. Say you want to go from 10-pound bicep curls to 15-pound swings, simply ask, "Alexa, increase weight by 5 pounds." Within seconds, a motorized weight selector understands your command and rapidly adjusts accordingly. Alexa will also respond to specific-load ("Alexa, set weights to 15 pounds") and exercise ("Set weight for tricep curls") commands.
ISelect dumbbells can also save presets for 15 different techniques, including biceps curl, overhead shoulder press, lateral shoulder raise, front shoulder raise, triceps extension, bent over row, chest press, squat, deadlift, lunge, lateral lunge, wood chop, chest fly, reverse fly and renegade row.
How about if you like the extra work of manually turning the weight or don't own an Alexa-powered device. No problem; this iSelect dumbbell set boasts a dial on the custom-fitted trays that adjusts the weights with a turn of the knob. To get you started on this fitness journey, iFit is including a complimentary 30-day membership that unlocks a plethora of on-demand activities streamable through a tablet or smartphone. You'll also find iFIT Trainers that will lead you through every movement to perfect your form and maximize your session. After that, it costs $39 a month for the feature. Just to be clear, though: An iFit membership is not required to use the weights.
"The concept and execution of these weights are spot on. Having the ability to adjust the weights from 5 pounds to 50 pounds with the turn of a button makes these incredibly versatile and take up minimal footprint in our home. These are the perfect for anyone looking to build onto their home gym. I will definitely recommend to friends and family!" wrote a satisfied customer.
"We’ve been looking for a good set of weights to use at home for awhile, these ones are amazing," added another. "Our friends have them and we HAD to get them. You can set them up to change weight through Bluetooth, through your Alexa, or just use the knob. Our boys are pumped for them too. Great value. Great quality.
The $299 tag might sound steep, but you can't put a price on ease and a toned, healthy physique. Plus, it's down a whopping $130 from its original price of $429. If you're a serious lifter (or just serious about getting into shape), NordicTrack iSelect Adjustable Dumbbells are just the tools to help you stick to those health and fitness goals.
