Rep Fitness Clearance Sale

Rep Fitness is starting to open up the showroom again as they have limited quantities of stock that has been returned or has inadequate packaging.  I came armed with my list of wants including 35# DB pair, resistance bands, weight tree, change plates and a 25 mm barbell.  I was willing to settle for anything between 20# and 35# dumbbells.

Even at 1:30 after a full morning of customers they had a fair selection including 20kg barbells, V2 Rubber Coated Olympic Plates, heavy kettlebells, sandbags, battle ropes, benches, a pull-up system and single Olympic plates in various weights among other items.  They had a 25# pair of rubber grip hex dumbbells and a 27.5# pair of rubber coated hex dumbbells.  They also had a lot of weight for adjustable dumbbells.

I also looked at 3100 folding rack accessories and they had j-cups and spotter arms.  I have both and decided to hold off.

I ended up grabbing the pair of 27.5# dumbbells for $0.75/lb and my sales rep was kind enough to throw in a free t-shirt (normally $20 on clearance for $10).  The dumbbells worked out to $41.25 (with tax $43.21).  That is a substantial discount versus the retail price of $65.

I would still like to get a pair of 35# dumbbells, but this certainly gives me a great training option as the 50# dumbbells while standard for competition are pretty beefy for me to train with.
