Fitness deals: treadmills, ellipticals, weights on sale

Staying fit can be a difficult journey, especially if you don’t have the correct fitness equipment to keep you motivated and help you get over the minor hurdles that often happen at the start of any fitness journey. Luckily, there are a lot of great home gym deals that you can take advantage of, whether you’re just starting out and want a set of smart dumbells or something really high-end like a NordicTrack piece of equipment. Whatever it is, we’ve collected some of our favorite deals below, and since we did mention it, it’s also worth checking out these NordicTrack deals and Bowflex deals for some alternatives.

Adjustable Dumbbell 25-pound 5-In-1 Single — $90, was $140

One of the worst things about dumbbell training is having too many dumbbells. They can take over your whole gym. This deal (on a SINGLE dumbbell, so buy two!) can take the place of five dumbbells in your complete gym kit. Instead of one 55-pound dumbbell, you’re getting an 11-pound dumbbell, a 22-pound dumbbell, and so on up until the 55 pounder. This is advantageous if you’re just starting out with working out and don’t know what weight you need to start with or if you want to do different exercises with different weights. Finally, note that the design of the adjustable dumbbell is quite safe as you can only adjust the weights (via a simple handle turning mechanism) while they are laid carefully on tray. Once they’re off, the weight is “locked in” so to speak until you return them to the try. No lost toenails here!

Echelon Stride 30 — $600, was $700

Not all treadmills have to be super expensive, and the Echelon Stride is a good budget-oriented option that still has a lot of features. It has a long but thin 16 x 47-inch belt for you to run on which is also well-suited for smaller spaces. You get a max speed of ten miles per hour, which is pretty solid if you’re just starting out, and the 15 pre-programmed modes should be more than enough, although you can set three custom workouts if you want.

ProForm Carbon EL — $700, was $800

To train the way you want, it includes 18 resistance levels, which can be controlled by you or your trainer in an iFIT class, of which you’ll have 30 days of free access to with the purchase of this elliptical. The ProForm Carbon EL has a water bottle holder for your hydration needs and dual 2-inch speakers for your entertainment.

The result is a realistic workout simulation without ever having to leave the room. Its quiet nature is perfect for those looking after a baby or who are always on call from the work from home office. The NordicTrack Commercial VU29 carries cyclers up to 325 pounds.

Matrix ICR50 Indoor Cycle — $899, was $1,199

If you want a more traditional cycling experience, you can check the Matrix ICR50, with a magnetic resistance wheel which will give you the feel of a regular bike. You can pick between 11 resistance levels, which is great if you’re just starting to move to the next stage of your training. That said, it’s worth noting that it doesn’t have a screen or heart rate sensor, so if you want either of those two, you’re missing out.

Schwinn 470 Elliptical Machine — $1,099, was $1,299

The Schwinn 470 Elliptical provides a unique elliptical workout experience.

It is able to be adjusted to 25 different resistance levels and be put on an incline of up to 10-degrees. You can challenge yourself with these settings via the 200+ virtual courses included in the “Explore the World” subscription you can add on to the machine or one of the 29 workout programs included with the machine.

More on the best deals on gym equipment, apparel, and fit tech

Fitness trackers are a great way to start any journey into getting into shape. Fitness trackers often sync with your smartphone with a health app so you can track your steps, your mileage activities such as running, cycling, swimming, your calories burnt, and more. They are typically waterproof, dustproof, and generally durable so you can wear them no matter where you are and what you are doing.

Resistance bands are also great tools for getting into shape, no matter where you are. They are lightweight and usually come with a carrying bag for easy transport. On the other hand, there are total home gyms that bring all of your favorite machines to the comfort of your home. Total home gyms can be on the pricey side, but they are convenient and ultimately save you money in the long run when compared to gym fees. You can mix and match your pricier fitness equipment through elliptical deals and treadmill deals.

If you don’t want to buy too much equipment, yoga is a great way to get into shape and get in touch with your spiritual side. Yoga requires very little supplies since all you really need is a decent yoga mat. We’ve included a great deal on a yoga mat here, but there are hundreds to choose from out there in all different colors and sizes.

If you want to take a more old-school route, dumbbells are a fitness equipment classic. Purchasing a wide range of dumbbells weights can be expensive and take up a lot of space in your home gym. Fortunately, adjustable dumbbell sets that eliminate the space issue and can save money, too. Adjustable dumbbells use various designs that allow you to quickly add and reduce weight. You can easily add and remove weight plates for each muscle group and for your regimen of reps and sets.

Diet and exercise have an important symbiotic relationship. Your body can only work with what you give it. Meal kit deals can save you time and money on meal prep, and provide an easy structure to follow.

Make sparkling water at home, anytime, for only $50 thanks to this Prime deal
Philips Stainless Sparkling Water Maker

Among the best Prime Day deals to be found this year include a bunch of deals which are available ahead of the official start of Prime Day tomorrow. So if you're hoping to score some early discounts, then you should keep your eyes open for deals which have already begun -- not only on electronics, but also on health and fitness products and smart home products. One offer we had to highlight today is on a gadget that's good for your health and for the planet, a sparkling water maker that can encourage you to drink more water without having to buy bottled.  The Philips GoZero Sparkling Water Maker is available today for just $50, down from its usual price of $60.

Why you should buy the Philips GoZero Sparkling Water Maker
We all know we should be drinking more water, especially during the hot summer months, but it's easy to be tempted by sodas, juices, or other sugary drinks. But fresh sparkling water has a lot of the appeal of sodas while being better for you. The only downside is that sparkling water typically comes in single use plastic bottles, which are wasteful for the environment. The Philips GoZero Sparkling Water Maker aims to overcome that by letting you make your own sparkling water at home easily, so you can have refreshing fizzy water on hand whenever you want it.
