    Bumper plates in Alberta?

    I am looking for a set of bumper plates to train with and need some help finding them. Any ideas where a guy could pickup a set in Alberta?

    I bought all my equipment at physique fitness in edmonton and they said they could get bumper plates but never did give me a quote. I'm sure most places can get you them but they are definately $$$
