Are you getting sick of bodyweight training? We found some home workout equipment that’s still in stock, but we advise you act fast…
Eight weeks ago, days before the UK went into full lockdown, Boris Johnson announced that gyms were to close their doors. Online fitness retailers were bombarded with orders but, unfortunately, many of us missed out on equipment as it flew off of the virtual shelves. As a result, our home workouts have consisted of bodyweight moves for the past two months.
Now that we know gyms won’t be open until at least July, we’re getting desperate to get our hands on some kit. But stock still isn’t quite back to what it was, and almost as soon as products are back, they’re gone again.

We’ve trawled the internet (like, really trawled) to find some places that are still selling fitness gear to help you build strength from home. Be warned: some items are expensive and others have limited stock, so our advice is to act fast…
Where to buy free weights online
Finding free weights in stock is a tough job, as demand for kettlebells, dumbbells, barbells and plates has been through the roof. We get it: hitting strength goals while on lockdown is hard without weights, so jump on some of this stock.
These dumbbells are in stock at Origin Fitness and range from 1-20kg.
Escape fitness also has some free weight equipment in stock, including these kettlebells that go up to 20kg.
Honestly? Give up the hunt for barbells, unless you live in one of the few areas that Argos is still serving with their spinlock vinyl barbell sets.
