While it's definitely slim pickings out there, it's not impossible to find reasonably priced dumbbells or kettle bells if you know where to look -- or you have several hours to weed through all the “out of stock” alerts on the internet. Fortunately, I had the time and figured I'd pay it forward by putting together a regularly updated list of all the places you can either order or pre-order dumbbells and kettle bells right now.

Editors' note: Prices and availability are accurate as of the publishing date and are subject to change. The weights that are currently in stock are 1, 3, 4, 8, 9 and 10 pounds, and they are an inexpensive dumbbell option.

Deluxe vinyl dumbbells available in weights ranging from 1 to 20 pounds. Think of them as a full rack of dumbbells that you typically see in a gym, but in a much more compact size.

These mini adjustable dumbbells come in 12.5 or 25-pound sets, but the 25-pound option is the only one available right now. 80-pound adjustable dumbbell set available for preorder with an expected ship date of Dec. 28-31.

If you have a store near you that carries workout equipment, like Dick's Sporting Goods or Walmart, you can search “dumbbells” or “kettle bells” and then filter the results to show only those available to pick up in store. If anything is available, you can immediately purchase them online and then go pick them up in the store whenever they're ready.

I got lucky finding a set of dumbbells at my local Dick's Sporting Goods, even though they were sold out online. You can also try your luck at local discount stores, like Ross, TJ Max, Marshall's and Home Goods.

I have several friends who were able to score both dumbbells and kettle bells for the same everyday fair prices in the last couple of months. You have to be willing to be flexible as far as size and color go, though -- in stores like these, you typically have fewer options.

Just to be completely clear, a kettle bell is essentially a cannonball with a loop on the top that forms a handle. They are use for dynamic exercises and there are many full-body workout regimens that require nothing more than a single kettle bell.

And not only did Amazon sell out of kettle bells, but they have been out of stock in all the nicer models and popular weights since early March. Their most popular was Amazon’s own AmazonBasics kettle bell in an enamel finish, but it’s not been restocked in weeks.

With some hunting you can find lighter weights (like this 20-lb Wader) but expect long lead times and no Prime shipping. If you read reviews around the web you’ll see this is a favorite brand among enthusiasts and most people have no problem with the premium price these kettle bells command.

While their kettle bells aren’t cheap, you get a great looking bell with made of quality materials and a weight-specific color-coordinated finish. Vulcan is a popular choice with kettle bell enthusiasts and home workout fans alike.

Most big box stores that have inventories stock kettle bells in their online stores, but very few are good places to get kettle bells because they don’t have lots of sizes and their quality is questionable. Given the kettle bell shortage right now they would seem to be a good place to turn, but they are mostly cleaned out.

Already it had been dealing with low inventory levels across its home gym lineup because the virus had temporarily shuttered factories in China. Since then, the 55-person company has largely been reorganized to turn away from professional gym gear and focus only on home exercise products.

Most of the kettle bells that you could have ordered before March 13 were; it's probably not surprising that, in 2020, there are few American foundries eagerly pumping out large bulbs of iron. But Rogue, in a moment of massive demand and with a supply chain in chaos, has turned to Rhode Island's Cumberland Foundry, a company with roughly 40 employees.

Those Instagram pictures it posted were from Cumberland, a tacit acknowledgment that, at least temporarily, the system has shifted: Rogue needs professionally crafted kettle bells wherever it can get them, even if it has to pay higher, American-sized wholesale prices than what they and other companies (including Rep Fitness) are getting overseas. Cumberland isn’t automated, and its president, Tom Lucchetti, estimates that it takes a full day to produce 40 to 50 kettle bells (with Rogue handling last steps, like painting the bells).

I just saw the news report that the Patriots sent a plane to get a million paper masks from China. Back then, the owner of a Rhode Island gym was ordering products from exercise gear conglomerates, which have their kettle bells made overseas.

In Georgia, George Boyd Jr. is the vice president of Golden's’ Foundry and Machine Company, one of the largest foundries left in the U.S. Golden's’ makes long-haul truck parts, in addition to commercial items like cast-iron grills, which Boyd says are “selling like hot cakes” right now. Golden's’ dabbled with limited runs of dumbbells once upon a time, but stayed out of the kettle bell business out of respect to their foundry friends up north.

Golden's’ dumbbell experiment didn’t last, and Boyd is hesitant to take on fitness equipment-related projects without a commitment from the companies involved that they wouldn’t bolt back to China when the pandemic subsides. “A lot of large American buyers say they care about everything, but at the end of the day, all they want to know is piece price,” Boyd says.

Boyd hopes the sold-out kettle bell saga will open consumer’s eyes about the dismal state of manufacturing, amongst many other industries, in the U.S. and around the world. “With these massive disruptions, I hope more people are thinking about, well, do we really want to have a logistical supply chain that stretches over half the globe ?” he says.
