What’s genius about Bala’s weights isn’t that they’re too chic to be true. Or that they feel just right in your hands. It’s that they fit seamlessly into any and every movement routine, from hard-core strength workouts to leisurely laps around the park. Here’s your starter kit: a pair of one-pound weighted bangles, which you wrap around your wrists or ankles to make any movement more challenging; two three-pound hand weights for extra resistance; and a circular ten-pound weight which swaps in anywhere you’d put a kettlebell. It’s all made from sturdy stainless steel and wrapped in super-soft, grippy silicone.
Los Angeles-based Bala, founded by a wife-and-husband team, makes thoughtful, stylish exercise accessories that fit into any workout routine, from sweaty yoga sculpt classes to laps around the cul-de-sac.
