powerlifting barbell

Hi,

I've bought some fitness equipment for a home gym on January on fitnessshop24 and I've got nothing since then. Even no email from them to cancel it or telling me they don't know when they will get the equipment. I did some research and the same products on german shops are coming on Q3 this year, so probably I'll have to wait a lot.

I found some shops on germany that sells bars and send them in 10 days, but I cannot easily find half racks or other stuff. Anyone knows shops in Switzerland and other countries around Switzerland that sells this kind of stuff?

All shops in Germany and Switzerland are completely empty right now. I went to the Zurich branch of Sport Tiedje, largest chain for what you are looking for and asked what they have on stock. Literally nothing and they have to wait for weeks to get it into the shop... they Said some customers are waiting for months for some kettlebells... I would very much doubt an online shop that claims a week or two.

My husband started last fall collecting fitness equipment, had to wait more than six months for a rack. High demand, not enough supply.

I got this one two months ago and I'm pretty satisfied.
It's still available.

Funnily enough we bought stuff a year ago right at the start of the pandemic and didn't have to wait more than 4 weeks. And it was a time when lots of people started updating their home gyms.

One supplier gave the reason as being threefold—higher demand, COVID related shutdowns affecting work schedules, and shipping difficulties (mainly also Covid related). In any case, it’s definitely a strange situation! But worth having the equipment at home for sure.
