Runner's World included Core Home Fitness in a round-up of the best, trainer-approved adjustable dumbbells. "Once you choose your weight, you don’t have to worry about the plates moving around as you push or press the dumbbell. And the contoured, textured handle allows you to have a good, tight grip, no matter how sweaty you get."
Consumer Reports says, "The Core Home Fitness Adjustable Dumbbell Set, which earned CR’s Best Buy designation, is automatically balanced and has an easy one-handed adjustment."
The Wirecutter says "Of the 10 sets of adjustable dumbbells we’ve tested over the past three years, the Core Home Fitness model offers the best experience in its price range, making it a great choice for most home gyms."
Men's Health editors make their pick for the Most User-Friendly Adjustable Dumbbell. "These are ideal for drop sets and supersets, with a quick-change dial that lets you go from five pounds to 50 in a snap."
