I live in a townhome and my neighbors next door are constantly lifting weights sometimes as early as 7:00 am and as late as 10:00 pm, every day and every 3 hours on the weekend. The noise from the weights tapping, slamming, and dropping is pouring into my townhome. This also causing the walls and floor to vibrate. I tried talking to them about it with no resolve. Their lifting is either waking me up or preventing me from going to bed and is a constant disruptionion at different time of day, every day. What can I do about it? We are both homeowners and not renters.
It could constitute a nuisance and/or violation of various agreements. If it is that serious, speak with a lawyer about your options.

You are a taxpayer call the police on a noise complaint. Let the police respond and hear what is going on and have a chat with your neighbor. Best of luck.
In addition to the other advice you have received, you can check with your HOA to see if there is anything in the covenants as to the noise, i.e. time of day, etc., to see if a violation has occurred on that level as well.
If you are seeking a cause of action, the closest thing that may be available for you moving forward would be a nuisance claim. This would require strict review of the requisite legal elements of that charge, and you would need to consult with a local attorney who is experienced with your State's standard for a nuisance claim.
