With manyand others who work with limited capacity turn to fitness enthusiasts to do their workouts. But with everyone having pretty much the same idea, there have been some serious stock issues down the line. If you thought to find it was hard try to find a set of dumbbells or one now.
Even if you are able to find a set, many retailers on Amazon and Walmart are raising prices to take advantage of the low supply and high demand ̵
While it’s definitely a slim choice, finding dumbbells or kettlebells at reasonable prices isn’t impossible if you know where to look – or if you have hours to read all of the “out of stock” warnings on the internet search. Fortunately, I had the time and figured I’d pay it up by compiling a regularly updated list of all the places to order or pre-order dumbbells and kettlebells.

More tips to help you figure out what you need
If you can’t find what you need online, there are a few ways you can get a little more creative.
When you have a store near you that sustainsAs with Dick’s Sporting Goods or Walmart, you can search for “dumbbells” or “kettlebells” and then filter the results to show only those that can be picked up at the store. When something is available, you can buy it online instantly and then pick it up in store whenever it’s ready.
Online inventory is often different from in-store inventory, especially at large retailers like these. You’ll also face less competition trying to find what you need looking local rather than national. I was lucky enough to find a range of dumbbells at my local Dick’s Sporting Goods even though they sold out online. And since many stores offer a roadside 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 have been able to get both dumbbells and kettlebells at the same everyday fair prices over the past few months. However, you need to be willing to be flexible about size and color – you usually have fewer options in stores like this one.
