The biggest enemy of exercise at home is boredom and, let's face it, the visual appearance of exercise equipment doesn't help! The Beaver Dumbbell is a creative and clever approach to this problem, replacing the gray pieces of iron with an organic piece of wood (Japanese ash) that has been hand-carved in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, in a way that looks as if it has been chewed by a beaver.
To be fair, at 500 g (1.1 lb), the Beaver Dumbbell won't make you a bodybuilder: it is more for light, everyday exercise that keeps you fit. Of course, some would argue that this is the best kind of exercise and appropriate for any age. One thing is for certain, though: thanks to its unique design, including the playful "branch" touch (which is also a way to stop it from rolling), and its gradually changing color that comes naturally over use, this is just the right way to make exercise more interesting!
