The WEGG discs are intended to expand existing in-home gym of fitness minded poeple without wiping out one's bank account. The cost to add every pair of dumbbell one would want is costly and takes up too much space.
The WEGGs simply add onto an existing metallic based dumbbell or plates. One just places the WEGG close to the dumbbell and it attaches. WEGGs come in 1.25, 2.5 and 5 pound sizes. They are designed with a tongue and groove concept so that one can stack and combine them to a maximum of 11.25 on each side of a dumbbell; this adds 22.5 pounds to a dumbbell. Ideally, one would add to the size of a 20 pound dumbbell for maximum expansion.
