Heavy Duty Hammering

These Hand-Crafted Sledgehammers Are the Weights You Didn’t Know You Needed


While a treadmill or bike is an investment for a home gym, a practical starting point is a set of weights. Sure, there are $10 rubber covered ones, but they often look like they’d be better off in an aerobics studio. Acme Sledgeworks hand-crafts weights for the toughest-looking home gyms and CrossFit boxes. The weights range in size from 5 to 20-pounds; the 5-pound sledge weights are known as The Associate. The 20-pound dumbbell set is The Big Guns, and the 10-pound sledge is The Boss. When done lifting, use the Hammer Hooks to hang up the weights and they’ll double as art. The multi-functional design makes these the ideal tool to add a challenge to your workouts.
