Product Description

Amazon.com

Target your lower body muscle groups, including inner and outer thighs, and get results as your muscles exert effort to lift and balance the weight of these adjustable five-pound ankle weights. Ankle weights are one of the best ways in which to add resistance to your lower body training, by targeting certain muscle groups. The leg and hip joint are like a lever and fulcrum. With the hip being the fulcrum, the farther away the weight, the harder it is to lift and balance. The same can be said for the knee joint. By adding a minimum amount of weight, the leg muscles must exert considerable effort to lift and balance the weights, which provides maximum results. This 5-pound set includes two ankle weights that weigh 2.5 pounds each.

Product Description

GoFit's Adjustable Ankle Weights (5lb pair/2.5lbs each) are great for adding weighted resistance to your fitness and rehabilitation programs. The traditional styled ankle weights are made of heavy-duty nylon canvas, granulated steel shot packs for added comfort & a zipper closure to hold the weights securely in place.

These weights work pretty well.
Michelle Johnson
As such and unfortunately, the weight is left hanging by nothing but two inches of strap.

I love the fact that you can adjust the weights according to your needs.

I've worn many an ankle weight in my time and I have to say this is a quality product. The construction is durable and well made. The weights weigh what they are supposed to. The zipper is easy to manuever and the weight sacks are easy to remove and put back in again. The best ankle weights are the kind with a hook and slide through velcro strap. The strap is long and the velcro stays put. They seem like they'll last a long time and won't easily fall apart on you. The price is low and is a great deal for what you get.

A couple of cons however include one mind-boggling conundrum. I am a woman. My ankles, with socks, measure 9 inches around. My lower calf is 11 inches. The go-fit weights, not including strap are 12 1/2 inches long. However the diameter, when closed, does not make it all the way around my ankle. There is a 2 inch gap between the ends of the weight that is nothing but strap. As such and unfortunately, the weight is left hanging by nothing but two inches of strap. You can pull it as tight as possible and still it won't make it all the way around. This causes the weight to eventually slip and is left hanging off one side of your foot. It can get quite uncomfortable. My ideal weight would be at least 14 inches long and have two long pull through straps, one near the top and one near the bottom.

Another con, is the weights are very noisy and can only be used when "working out". When you walk, all you hear is slosh, slosh, slosh. I prefer to be able to wear my weights any time under my pants when I'm running errands or doing alot of walking but these are too noisy to go unnoticed. My ideal weight would have thin, solid removable weights instead of the bean-bag type.

This product is four-star but I gave it only three because unless there is an upgrade in style design, I probably won't buy these weights again.

In the Spring of 2006, I purchased the 10 lb adjustable Ankle weight set, which is the same as the 5 lb set, save for additional weights. Two weeks ago, one of the acrylic cinchs that the velcro strap slides through broke. I called GOFit's customer service line, and explained what had occurred. The pleasant and helpful rep took all of my information, and said they would send me another set of ankle weights. I was stunned. I assured the rep that wasn't necessary, and all I desired was one replacement. No weights, etc. She said that was fine.

Today I received an entire replacement set for both ankle's, and additional weights! GoFit went far and above my expectations, and I am pleased to leave them this revue of their fine product!

These weights work pretty well. I like the adjustability of the weights (1-5 lbs per leg). It works great for my physical therapy program. They aren't too hard to change in and out of the pockets either like some similar products. The only problem I have had with them is getting them tight enough to stay on my ankles and not slip down, but I do have pretty small ankles. I can put a washcloth under the weights to keep them in place, so I can work with it.

Overall, I am pleased with them and the price is reasonable for what you get.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Crabby Abby TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 16, 2011
I started using these weights as part of my physical therapy after I had surgery on both knees. The fit was good for me, though there was a gap of about 1 1/2" at the point of closure. The canvas casing has a zipper at the top and you can insert the appropriate weights to customize it to the weight needed. In my case, I started out with about a pound in each weight and I upped the overall weight in each as I gained strength in my knees/legs. The zipper manages to support the clever design (which has pockets for the individual weights) and the weights stay securely in place.
The construction seems fairly good. They are used daily and they still look new after 6 months of use. Given the price and flexibility, this was a good choice for me.

These ankle weights are really useful. They're more comfortable then I first thought. I also love that it's adjustable. I would recommend this to people who are looking for good quality ankle weights at a good price.

This product has fallen apart after less than 2 months of use by a 75-year-old woman doing rehab exercises in bed. The straps are fraying and the seam that holds the buckle on one weight unraveled and that weight can no longer be fastened to the ankle.

The item is as described and I like the flexibility of being able to change the weights. The straps are plenty long, too.
