Thankfully, as things are going back the the new normal, it becomes easier to buy weights online and have the best home gym setup for your budget. You might still have to look a bit harder to find the best Bowflex deals, but as opposed to how things were in April 2020, the availability of the best home weights and best kettlebells look much better nowadays.
Many sought-after models, including the Bowflex Selecttech 1090i dumbbells and the equally versatile Bowflex SelectTech 840 kettlebell, are still on short supply, but if you're vigilant – and quick – enough, you can still find excellent home weight deals at selected retailers, with Fitness Superstore, Argos and JTX Fitness leading the charge. Even Amazon has some great home weight deals on sometimes!

Buy weights online: the best online retailers
FitKit has a range of free weight and home gym accessories in stock, including the best barbells from Jordan Fitness and Ziva completion dumbbells.
We already knew JTX Fitness had a range of cardio machines but as it turned out, they stock resistance training equipment, such as suspension trainers and dumbbells too! Better head over now and buy while you can.
Mirafit is one of the best home gym equipment providers in UK and most usually has plenty of stock too, but due to the sky-high demand for such stuff nowadays, they are just as out of stock of home weights and best weight benches as everyone else. Nevertheless, the Mirafit website gets updated frequently so it is worth having a look every now and then.
Fitness Superstore has the most comprehensive supplier network and therefore this store is most likely to receive stock before other outlets. At the moment, delivery time frames are up to seven working days and most of the brick-and-mortar Fitness Superstore shops are open for business.
Having a look around for anything at Amazon is always a good idea. Granted, the online retail giant is not too famous for stocking quality gym equipment, but you can still find good deals on the best pull up bars or top ab rollers if you look hard enough.
Argos' website is particularly painful to browse, items will appear as 'in stock' when in fact most usually there is only one left in a remote store in Northern Scotland. Nevertheless, Argos sells decent quality cheap multi gyms and who knows, you might get lucky.
Now, it is not often we say this, but have you considered shopping at Sports Direct? They don't just sell Lonsdale tracksuits, contrary to popular belief, and have a surprising amount of home gym equipment, such as the best resistance bands, left to buy, with free delivery on orders over £50. Please allow up to 7 working days for delivery.
It is recommended to always check delivery times and T&Cs, at least until the lockdown is lifted. Some stores has introduced minimum order values and delivery dates can be as far as September still. Avoid disappointment and read the small print before you hit the "Buy now" button.
