    Hi,

    Looking to buy dumbells, does anyone have any recommendations of online stores? Currently looking at fitness superstore, but for some 30kg dumbells I'm looking at around £60, and additional 2 x 5kg plates at £17.

    Also, would these weights be enough for a beginner? I'll work my way up to the heaviest weight but don't want them to become obsolete too soon.

    Any input would be appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Look on Amazon - you can get them for cheaper than that. They often come up on the Black Friday sales in November. Even if you don't want to wait that long for them, you could probably pick up some extra plates cheap that way.

    Don't bother online - Honestly not worth it. Check on gumtree or ebay - Often free or extremely cheap if you pickup locally - So many people getting rid of them. Otherwise you're spending a lot of money for nothing...
