Makers underscore product durability and user convenience, particularly in design and materials used.
- Durability: China makers are improving stability in accessories included in strength training sets. Metal such as iron, steel and its stainless variant are employed for the push up bars and hand grip springs. Dumbbells and exercise tubes employ latex and TPU, respectively because of their greater strength and tenacity.
- Electronic components: Some makers include hand grips with digital counters in upcoming releases. A number of jump ropes also come with a microcomputer and an LCD.
- Aesthetics: Brighter hues such as blue, red, orange and green are being adopted to enhance visual appeal.
