We understand fitness is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but with the high prices of gym memberships and boutique fitness classes, it can be hard to keep up a routine. That’s why many people opt to create their own home gyms instead. It can help you save money in the long run and allows you to work out at any time without having to leave your house—but, of course, space at home can be limited. If there’s one piece of space-saving, convenient equipment every home gym could use, it’s a pair of Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Dumbbells. And right now, the brand’s 552 set is on sale.
These adjustable dumbbells, like Bowflex’s 1092s, take up way less space than an entire rack of weights, making them ideal for any sized room. Whether you have a dedicated home gym or exercise in your apartment living room, they’ll be easy to tuck out of the way. Right now, the dumbbells, which are backed by almost 18,000 5-star Amazon ratings, are on sale for $120 off. Each dumbbell has a weight selection dial that ranges from 5 pounds up to 52.5 pounds, and you can adjust the size within seconds to keep your momentum during a workout going uninterrupted.
When you purchase the dumbbells, you’ll also receive a one-year membership to the JRNY online fitness program that’s a $149 value. Here, you can find personalized workouts, virtual coaching, trainer-led workouts, and more. All you need is an iOS or Android phone or tablet to use the service and, with your device’s camera on, it can count your reps and track your form in real-time. This is a great perk for beginners who would like more guidance on how to start their fitness journey.
The $429 price tag can sound intimidating, even while on sale, but you’re getting the equivalent of 15 sets of weights in just two adjustable dumbbells. A rack with just five sets of weights goes for nearly $650 on Amazon (with a discount), so the Bowflex dumbbells are basically a no-brainer.
One 5-star Amazon shopper compared several types of adjustable weights in their review and said, overall, the Bowflex dumbbells “provide the most bang for the buck and are the best choice by a wide margin.” They added that they were “the smoothest, fastest to adjust, and nicest feeling of all.”
Another person said the pair “gives you an array of weights without the clutter” and claimed they are the “perfect addition for [a] home gym.”
Although the Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells are fantastic on their own, we couldn’t help but point out that Amazon also discounted an adjustable strength training bench. These pieces of equipment together make weightlifting more comfortable and efficient and cost less than $600 combined.
