Unlike decades past, getting in shape doesn’t have to be a grueling and mundane experience devoid of distraction other than your trusty headphones and playlist. Fitness equipment like treadmills and stationary bikes have gone “smart” in spectacular form, integrating real-world route mapping with street-view video footage and the capability to alter inclines and resistance to match said route, among a host of other features.
While all these bells and whistles certainly call for a slightly higher cost of entry, our favorite top-rated treadmills and stationary bikes are seeing significant price drops just in time for Cyber Monday. If you’ve been procrastinating about getting in shape, but want to make good on that fitness-based New Year’s resolution you’ve been trying to forget these last 11 months, now’s your chance to get back on track without breaking the bank (before 2019 rolls around).
Best Treadmill Deal — Horizon 7.0AT Treadmill
The Horizon 7.0AT is a strong contender in the runner’s treadmill category. It’s powerful, with 3.0 CHP (horsepower), and it’s strong, made with a steel frame that can handle up to 325 pounds of user’s weight. At 20 inches by 60 inches, the running deck is a little longer than the home gym standard to accommodate most heights and strides. It also has variable cushioning to lessen impact on knees, ankles, and hips. The deck will also incline up to 15 percent and move up to 12 mph.
You have the option to connect to Android or Apple devices and apps via Bluetooth to access fitness apps such as the free AFG Pro App, UA, and FitBit. The best part? It’s the most affordable of the pack by a hefty margin, as a $1,000 price drop brings your cost of entry down to a modest $899, including free shipping, for a limited time. Plus use the code Horizon5 for an additional 5 percent off.
