The development of the YBell has been a labor of love for inventor and personal trainer Aaron Laurence. Over the last 15 years Aaron has trained thousands of people on Australia’s famous Bondi Beach.
He was using traditional training tools, dumbbells, kettlebells and medicine balls, to create his own brand of High-Intensity Resistance Training (HIRT). With his member numbers growing it became impossible to keep incorporating multiple pieces of equipment into his sessions. The solution to the problem was the YBell. One piece of equipment that did everything he was already doing and more!
The YBell has been carefully designed by experts in fitness and industrial design to make it easy and accessible. It has been designed and redesigned to get it right.
For me changing from conventional training equipment to YBell has been a game changer. No longer am I changing equipment to do a particular exercise as I can do everything using YBell. My 60 minute workout has gone to 45 minutes because I am not moving to different pieces of equipment. The range of exercises that can be done using one or two YBell are endless and they are small and compact. I feel my overall cardio and endurance has definitely improved!
I have been using YBell since the first prototypes were developed in 2016. They are amazing and versatile pieces of exercise equipment which allow you to do a workout that would previously have involved 4 or more different sets of apparatus. They are great for strength training, weight loss or all round fitness. I have lost over 8kg since I started using them!
I’m not going to lie – I was a little sceptical when first introduced to YBell…. I liked the familiar routine of dumbbells; kettle bells; med-balls and bar bells. Motivated by Az’s enthusiasm for the YBell, I gave them a go and soon appreciated that they gave me everything I got with the old equipment and more. Now YBell aren’t just “part of my training” but they are how I train.
