Best weight lifting belt india
Back in the day when I used to visit the local gym they had one or two back support weight lifting belts. I believe it was aurion gym belt, not sure. It was a leather gym belt India. Back then I did not know the gym belt used at all.
Later when I knew why I used a gym belt then I realised I could have supported my back more with a weight lifting belt and do my workout more safely. Here I would like to present a list of best weight lifting belts in India. In India weight lifting belts are more commonly known as gym belts.
Some popular manufacturers are USI, Aurion, NIVIA, KOBO etc. Apart from leather there are also gym belts that are made of rubber and polyester.

Special Mention – custom weight lifting belt India
USI Tiranga powerlifting belt is an amazing gym belt. This is a limited edition powerlifting belt India. It is tri color like our own national flag. Being a patriotic person I could not ignore it at all. Here it is, in its all glory. Apart from the tri color, it is also made in India product.
And just not the color, it is a beast when it comes to back support weight lifting belt for powerlifting.
- Amazing collection worthy custom weight lifting belt in India.
- 10mm thickness with 100mm width. Complete back support while doing powerlifting.
- Non slip leather so that it sticks to your body for optimum support.
- Comes with closed gap hook holes for best fit.
- Heavy duty material used with nylon thread.
- Strong material that does not buckle.
Since this one is a premium usi gym belt – the cost is higher and material quality is also better than other usi gym belts.
This is a very tough product, even can be used in a commercial gym. But if multiple people use it then the Tiranga factor will go down a bit, don’t you think?
A usi gym belt that you can treasure for a long time.
Top 7 best Powerlifting and weight lifting belts India [Review]
USI gym belt – Powerlifting – 790PLH
Final Verdict: A 10mm thick leather made, professional quality powerlifting belt in India. If this line makes your heart beat a little faster then get this gym belt without a second thought. Unless your budget does not permit this.
USI gym belt heavy 790PLH is made of with strong leather, double stitched and really gives you a sense of security and durability. This usi gym belt is quite rigid and may leave rashes on your belly at first. And that rigidity will give you extra confidence that your back is safe. USI themselves mention this is for powerlifting, mainly like the lifts like squats, deadlifts. You can wear it when doing other workouts also. As a main use of gym belt is to allow your to brace your core so that your lower back is safe. And this belt gets a 10/10 marks on that.
There are some issues with correct sizing, but I would say always measure around your naval. It is a not regular belt. If your waist size is 36 then you can go for M and if your waist size is around 30 then got for S. And also check for the entire length of this USI gym belt while buying.
KOBO gym belt – Powerlifting belt India
Final Verdict: This kobo gym belt is my second best choice after the USI gym belt. It is also a 10mm thick weight lifting belt. Looks and feels really durable, this kobo gym belt is lower priced than the no 1 weight lifting belt in India bit still a great choice for serious weight lifters.
Kobo gym belt can also be used as a power lifting belt which can provide your great support to your lower back during deadlifts, squats etc. This kobo gym belt is 10mm thick and 4 mm wide. The solid material and built of this gym belt makes it really easy to go heavy on all exercises without any worries. There are no soft pads on the back and the strong leather may leave some mark on your skin but that is worth the strength you can gain with this gym belt. Generally the size runs a little short, you might have to buy and return 2 times to get the size right.
Some might complain that the leather made kobo gym belt is too hard, well it is meant to be. It will soften a bit with repeated usages but it is meant to be hard.
Aurion gym belt for Weight Lifting
Final Verdict: Aurion gym belt is a budget leather gym belt in India. And Aurion gym belt is one of the best gym belt in sub 1000 INR range. This weight lifting belt is 4 inch wide, thickness is around 6m only.
Aurion gym belt is a budget weight lifting belt in India. It is not very thick, neither made of actual leather. This gym belt manufacturer made this with artificial leather.
Like with all other gym belts, there are some issues with proper waist size, generally for Aurion gym belt xl size will fit waist size 34. Since this aurion weight lifting belt is made of artificial leather it is available in leather looking multiple colors like grey, maroon etc.
Aurion gym belt could be a good choice for people working out at home with their budget power cage gym.
XTRIM DURA Weight Lifting Belt India
Final Verdict: A new gym belt manufacturer with a 4 inch wide leather type gym belt in India. The thickness is 8mm so perfectly fits the mid range of weight lifting belts in India.
If you are wearing this belth then you must be hitting 100kg in squats – not for professional power lifters but for fitness enthusiasts this would do. Many do recommend this gym belt in India than kobo gym belt or USI gym belt as they did not like the thickness of 10mm.
Amazon Basics Weight Lifting Belt India
Final Verdict: A 6 inch amazon basics branded weight lifting belt anyone? At a glance a 6 inch gym belt is not for pro level powerlifting. But it is greatly suited for gym lovers who would want to push a little more into their PR of squat and deadlifts. Don’t get your hopes up, not a leather made, it is made of faux leather.
A key feature of this gym belt would be the huge back support, it is wide enough to provide comfort (padded). This weight lifting belt is Ideal for body building and home gym users. 115 by 15.2 by 0.76 cm (LxWxH; large) with 1 year warranty.
There are mixed reviews for this gym belt, for some it is comfortable and for some it is not.
I was quite surprised to see this brand selling gym belts, as well as hex dumbell sets.
KOBO Gym belt – Nylon Made
Final Verdict: This Kobo gym belt is nylon made and is 6 inch wide and has 7mm thickness. This is made with neoprene foam with nylon stitches to the sides for maximum comfort. NOt for heavy powerlifting but for a home gym user who does not want to lift 180 kgs, this may work.
Velcro strap, nylon made and neoprene foam is all that this kobo gym belt has and in a good package. This is not aimed for pro level power lifting rather this gym belt in India is for causal gym lovers who want better security and brace their core while doing deadlifts or squats.
But to workout with a all in one home gym machine, this might do.
NIVIA Gym belt – Nylon Made – Freesize
Final Verdict: The most budget friendly weight lifting belt in India, Nivia gym belt is free size and mostly made of nylon and straps are also made of nylon with velcro strap. If you are not into powerlifting belt India and just want some extra back support then get this nivia gym belt.
One of the key feature of this Nivia gym belt is that it has a wide back support and velcro strap. While the velcro strap sounds really unreliable but many do like this system. This is a free size version which supports waist size from 34-40 inches.
If you are going to buy this Nivia gym belt note that if your belly is smaller than 34 inches then it will not fit you. And since it fastens with a velcro strap, it may loosen up with time. Not a professional grade material and not to be confused with power lifting belts India.
What Are the Benefits of Weightlifting Belts and do You Need One?
The no 1 gym belt use is to reduce overall stress on your lower back and spine. Doing really heavy deadlifts like 100 kgs+ then you are putting your spine and lower back in danger. A gym belt helps you brace your core better and take the load off your spine better.
Secondly, we tend to bend forward or tilt at a side, with a belt around your belly you are more conscious. And a gym belt helps us reduce the unnecessary flexions thus making us use our legs more.
How to choose the Right weight lifting belt for You!
If you are into doing more dynamic workouts like clean and jerk, clean and press then too rigid or too thick weight lifting belt is not suitable for you. For genetic weight lifting and all you can get away with thinner belts, even nylon belts.
But for powerlifting or strongman acts you should get thicker belts
How and When to Use Weightlifting Belts
To wear the gym belt you do not need someone elses help. Generally a gym belt is worn over the belly/abdomen but not too low or not too high. It should stay above the pelvis around 3 inches approx. Comfort level will vary from user to user but you should be able to fully extend and contract your abs. You should be also able to push against the belt to create a pressure and instill stability while lifting.
Types of Weight Lifting Belts in India

By the material used, these are the weight lifting belt in India
- Full leather, like our USI gym belt.
- Faux leather like the Amazon gym belt.
