Let's be real: Gym memberships are overrated. The pandemic shook up everyone's workout routine, making some realize that paying for a gym membership isn't always worth it. Why pay exorbitant prices for workouts you can do at home? Buying the right home exercise equipment doesn't have to be expensive. All you need is the right set of dumbbells or kettlebells and you can do virtually any workout you find on YouTube.

The next question: Where can I find the best set of dumbbells without overpaying? The thought of having to scour the internet to find reasonable priced weights can be overwhelming and turn you off from working out at home completely. 

Fortunately, I had the time and figured I'd pay it forward by putting together a regularly updated list of all of the places you can either order or pre-order dumbbells and kettlebells right now.

Other tips for finding what you need

If you can't find what you need online, there are some ways you can get a little more creative.

If you have a store near you that carries workout equipment, like Dick's Sporting Goods or Walmart, you can search "dumbbells" or "kettlebells" and then filter the results to show only those available to pick up in store. If anything is available, you can immediately purchase them online and then go pick them up in the store whenever they're ready.

Online inventory is often different from in-store inventory, especially in large-box retailers like these. You'll also have less competition trying to snag what you need when you're searching locally, rather than nationally. I got lucky finding a set of dumbbells at my local Dick's Sporting Goods, even though they were sold out online. And with many stores offering a curbside pickup option, you don't even have to get out of your car.

You can also try your luck at local discount stores, like Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods. I have several friends who were able to score both dumbbells and kettlebells for the same everyday fair prices in the last couple of months. You have to be willing to be flexible as far as size and color go, though -- in stores like these, you typically have fewer options.
