Bells of Steel and Hardtail Canada
Workout gear may seem out of place on a mountain biking site, but training off the trails is a great way to improve performance on the trail.
After buying Bells of Steel gear, and being impressed by the build quality at competitive prices, I reached out to them. I’m proud to say I’m now an affiliate and will be reviewing their gear, with mountain bike training in mind.
I originally learned of the company through a friend — a former football and ski coach — who highly recommended them. After moving out of a condo with a cushy gym, I wanted a setup at home. And, like everyone else during Covid, I wanted gym gear so I could still workout while everything was shut down.
I’m not a weight lifting expert, but I have always strength trained. Having all this available in my house is a luxury. Anytime I want a workout, I just have to walk down the stairs!
As you can see in the photo above, my gym is pretty minimalistic. Rack, bar, crumb bumper plates, hex dumbbells, dip bar, and flat bench. I plan on adding a pulley when they are back in stock, but this is about all I need! With my bike trainer just steps away, this is a great, compact home gym.
Stay tuned for reviews about their gear, and how you can use it to train for biking!
