Home Gym Equipment
Can anyone suggest the best place(s) to shop for home gym equipment? I am mainly looking for a bench or two, a barbell with weights, and a set of dumbbells. It's for my 14 year old son, 12 year old daughter, and me to use in our basement. Given the current pandemic, I know that it's very difficult to find equipment - especially at a low price. The demand must be quite high at the moment. The fact that there are no gyms open and no sports activities going on in our province at the moment make this even more important for us. I don't want to spend too much and we don't have a ton of space. Ideally, I would really like to get pre-owned equipment.

Any advice would be great,

Thanks from Manitoba, Canada.

I cant speak for the bench and weights but can give some tips on other aspects.
Order a set of resistance bands and handles and create a station for them to hang for above preferably and if you have space a spot vertically too.
You can go to a local hardware store and create a multi- purpose dip and ab crunch rack/ station. and make it so it it either suspended to a wall or weighted on the bottom. these alone will help your process and when you get weights these wil still be helpful.

Appreciate the response Colossus. There are 2 I found on Amazon. I tried to post the links but I have not made 10 posts on this forum yet so it will not allow me to do so! Instead, I will name them here:

LSJI Fitness Chair Dumbbell Bench Weight Bench with Leg Extension and Leg Curl, Foldable Multifunctional Workout Bench, Adjustable Incline Bench Dumbbell Bench


Marcy Diamond Olympic Bench

Just put those names in the search bar in Amazon Canada and they should come up. The latter includes a separate squat rack. The former does not so I would have to buy one separate.

Any thoughts on these benches?
