A workout bench is a must have if you're serious about home workout. But...where to buy a bench?
And how much does a bench cost?
First of all, before you decide to buy a bench, or to decide which one to buy, maybe you should read the article where I give some advice about workout benches and reviews.
Stores that Sell Fitness Equipment
The first I was looking for a bench I went to a fitness store like anybody would do, to check out models and especially prices.
The unfortunate thing is that prices at fitness stores are often prohibitive. Way too expensive.
I know that you find very good quality stuff, but those stores more likely provide equipment for real gyms.
If you're like me you prefer to save some money when you go buy home workout equipment.
There are other stores in north american cities that sell some interesting equipment like:
- Canadian Tire (Canada only)
- Sport stores in general
I found that they can be a valid option to find some decent stuff. What I noticed is that either you find cheap and poor quality products or good quality but too expensive.
Internet and Online Stores
So we go back to the original question. My favorite place where to buy a bench that is good quality and not too expensive at the same time is the internet.
There are hundreds of websites that sell workout benches, but here I am going to talk about the ones I prefer and trust:
- Amazon.com and Amazon.ca
On the Bowflex site there are a few benches and I like them a lot.
First of all the look the same as the benches on Bowflex home gyms. If you want a good piece of equipment, Bowflex is definitely one of the better places where to buy a bench.

Prices for the following benches, as I am typing, vary from $89 to $249.

Where to Buy a Bench on Amazon
Amazon has a great variety of workout benches, and at good prices too.
On Amazon you can find many benches for home workout. Some of the are the exact same that Bowflex and Bodybuilding.com sell.
The advantage here is that on Amazon they are probably cheaper but they ship only within the US.
These are just a few examples of what you can find on this huge online store.Click here to view all the workout benches on Amazon
