Made from top quality leather, this belt provides extra padded back support.
The York weight lifting belt has a sleek design incorporating suede lining and a double prong buckle that enhances safety. The belt is extra padded to provide excellent back support during serious weight lifting. It is made from top quality leather and has a York logo in the centre.
I bought this belt for my son who is into weight training at the moment. Decided it safer he wear a belt and this one is excellent both on use and price. The belt is padded where it fits to the back and he says its very supportive. Be aware though that it comes in three sizes and as a 30/32 waist he required the MEDIUM size. We originally purchased the small but this only just fitted on the last fixing holes and was returned for the larger one. Thanks Amazon for another great item and quick delivery of the replacement.
The belt arrived earlier than estimated. I got this for my husbands birthday and he loved it. A good quality belt, great support and does the trick. Be sure to get the correct size as i was advised by another purchaser, Large fits 34-36 inch waist, medium fits 30-32 inch waist.
Although cheap this belt is very poorly made. I could overlook the fact it arrived covered in mould if it was any good. The main part of the belt and padded suede lining were okay but the leather loop holding the buckle to the belt was thin and poorly riveted to the main belt. The main problem were the prongs on the buckle. They are badly shaped and as previous reviews have stated make it virtually impossible to take the belt off and very difficult putting it on. I cannot believe a reputable company like York have marketed such a shoddy product. Surely they must have some sort of quality control that should have picked up this terrible design fault. I made the mistake of not taking the previous reviews seriously, thinking it couldn't be that bad but now realise it is. I also checked the same belt in Argos and saw that it was exactly the same. I have been weight training for over 25yrs and have used belts extensively in the past so take my advice and steer clear of this one.
It is ok but it leaves a lot of rubbed material on your clothes each time you use it, it gets better after using it for a while but not great. Either way worth the money to try a belt out but I would buy a better quality next time
I saw this in argos for more than double the price so I was a bit worried I might get something inferior at first. It's fine though, it's a good quality belt and a good price. I got the small for my 30" waist and it's a perfect fit, It could also be used for 32" or 28" with no problem.
Another exellent product from 'York Fitness'. The cheapest I could find this in any high street store, was in 'Argos' at £19:99. I am a 40 inch waste and the large was just the right size, as I intend to loose weight around my waist. Any bigger than 40 inches and you would really need a bigger size. The width is just right to give enough support, while not to wide to restrict your movement. There is just enough padding to make it comfortable, without loosing the support too.
