I did research on this recently and found that the cheapest solution is taobao (surprise, surprise). You can find all manner of weights and exercise equipment there as long as you know the Chinese keywords.

Try this chin-up bar:

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.1.xqMTQF&id=4207504932

 

Or type "chin-up bar" in Taobao and take a look.

 

Costs about 50 RMB and well worth it. Weights? I dunno, I finally found a gym so no more home weight equipment for me.

  Yeh, they're everywhere, they seem to sell them in stationers and hardware stores, they're all over the place. I picked up a bunch myself. Not too expensive at all. I mostly use them as door-stops.

Yes you can find it on Taobao i did but...postage costs will be a lot.

 

However on Taobao you can search sellers by where they live.  So when i lived in Yinchuan and was visiting Beijing i brought some weights from a seller in Beijing.  2 Olympic Dumbbells and weights loaded on it and carried it back on the train.  It was the south of Beijing an got there by metro and was in some shack but decent quality, i can search my history in Taobao and tell you the sellers ID if you living in Beijing.

You can also get them at Decathlon if you don't have internet banking or can't use taobao for some reason. I went to the one near the gongyixiqiao station on line 4 the other day. A little chaotic inside but they have everything you need.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
