Fitness Gear 2-Tier Dumbbell Rack
Best Rack Evah!
So, you'll need a little back story here. I had these dumbbells. They were all over the place. Some were on the stairs, under the bed, in the tub (I workout in the shower sometimes... but it's not creepy because I wear a wetsuit) some were in the freezer (nothing is quite as refreshing as lifting frozen dumbbells) and a few were glued to the ceiling (I have no idea.... they were like that when I moved in).
Ok, so now you see my problem: disorganized dumbbells. I spent months trying to figure out a way to store them. I tried a spice rack... it broke. I tried my kitchen cabinets... they fell off the wall (but they dislodged one of the ceiling dumbbells so it worked out). Finally I ran across a dumbbell rack at a used sporting goods place... it was over $100... USED!
So, then I had a bright idea... Dick's!
Needless to say I'm a happy camper (I have to camp now because the ceiling finally caved in). The dumbbell rack was easy to assemble, it's sturdy enough for all my dumbbells, and it looks way cooler than the spice rack did.

Great price - stable structure
This is a welcome addition to my workout room at home. My weights were a mess. I was going to purchase a $175 model online but I saw this one at Dick's in person and decided to get it. It was easy to put together. It holds my pairs of 40s, 35s, 30s, 25s, 20s and 15s. I have had it for a few weeks and it seems sturdy so far!

It's small, but i have sets of 12,15,20, and 25s on top and 30, 35 and 40 on bottom.
It wobbles pretty bad when touched, but has held up so far... solves the storage problem

Good quality, some assembly required
The rack is sturdy and well built. Assembly is a little time consuming, considering the number of peices.

The dumbell rack is very sturdy, however, it's not built for all types of weights. Some fit perfectly, others do not. The price was a little high for the size of the rack.

Fitness Gear 2-Tier Dumbell Rack
Overall I am not happy with this rack. I own several metal Hexagon dumbell sets and this rack does not hold them solidly. Such that even when you balance them perfectly on the rack they with the slightess movment of the rack can fall off. I now am several indents in the drywall behind the rack and am always nervous they are going to fall on my toes. The rack is pictured with many weight but they are the rubber dumbells which may be a different size or simply stick better. Overall the rack is solid and well built and if I had the dumbells that would fit properly on it, I would give it a good rating but the description does not mention what dumbells are appropriate so I am taking this rack back and then patching the wall.
