Gym Dumbbells White Marble 8.Kilo Piece by And Jacob

Wolf & Badger

So these may be the bougiest dumbbells we’ve ever pumped.
Certainly not ones to drop on your tootsies, but And Jacob’s
made-from-marble dumbbells are also a friendlier alternative to the
plastic-coated versions we’ve used before. Although it’s not often
touted as a sustainable material, marble actually ranks quite
highly in the green stakes thanks to the fact it’s carved, not
created. Fallen off your fitness game? We shouldn’t say it but they
make great bookends. Jane Fonda would not approve.

describing our left hook now) gloves crafted from a specialist
Skintex leather – not a leather at all but a vinyl alternative
