As we head into 2023, are thoughts of New Year's resolutions filling your head? If you, like many of us, are pledging to get into better shape, here's a way to make your regimen-to-be as easy as possible: invest in some at-home exercise equipment. And lookee here: The much-hyped Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells are $170 off at Amazon just in time for "Auld Lang Syne."
These Bowflex dumbbells adjust to meet the needs of everyone in your home. They can be set as light as five pounds and as heavy as 52.5 pounds. You can fine-tune them in 2.5-pound increments for the first 25 pounds, then slowly add extra heft as your muscles get stronger.
If you want some guidance, Bowflex offers a free one-year membership to on-demand, full-body strength classes through its app.
"The Bowflex 552 are some of the best and simplest dumbbells I have ever owned," wrote a verified shopper who gave the weights a five-star review. "My favorite thing besides being a space saver was how easily they were able to be adjusted... If you are someone who is starting the home gym workout like I am, you will definitely appreciate the Bowflex 552, they are great for many different types of workouts, They do provide a lot of information within the packet that comes with the 552’s as well."
One five-star reviewer says: "...I have been using them about 5 days a week, on average. We moved out of an apartment [building] that had a gym, into a house. [This] has enabled me to use a little space in the garage to keep my workouts up without the gym cost."
"I’ve been wanting these dumbbells for a long time. I’ve bought other less expensive “adjustable dumbbells” [but] I wish now I would have bought these instead," says a verified shopper who finally upgraded to Bowflex. "I’ve been using these for several months now and am so happy I finally bought them. They are worth every penny!!"
Don't need a whole set? Walmart has you covered. You can pick up a single, adjustable-weight dumbbell from Walmart for just $86. It has the same specs as the full set, but at a starkly discounted price.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
