Fitness deals: treadmills, ellipticals, weights on sale

It’s not talked about often, but staying healthy and exercising regularly can really help with your mental health, and if you’re the sort of person who struggles to stay active, it can be tough. Luckily, there is a lot of great fitness equipment that can help motivate you to keep going with minimal effort. That’s why home gym deals can be quite beneficial for those who struggle with exercise, but if you’re just looking to start out with basics, then there are some great fitness deals on things like treadmills and dumbells available. We’ve collected some of our favorites below, but it’s also worth checking out these NordicTrack deals and Bowflex deals.

Adjustable Dumbbell 25-pound 5-In-1 Single — $85, was $130

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 Stair Climber Sport — $500, was $600

It may not be immediately obvious, but going up and down a staircase is difficult work and is an excellent form of cardio if you’re looking to take it to the next level. Luckily, this Echelon Stair Climber is a great option, with three incline levels and convenient wheels that allow you to move it around easily. It can also store flat, which is a huge plus, and Echelon throws in a 30-day membership to Echelon Choice, which has a huge selection of on-demand content, so it’s nice to try out before plunging in with a fully-paid membership.

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.

NordicTrack Commercial VU29 Exercise Bike — $899, was $1,299

The NordicTrack Commercial VU29 is a quiet workout bike for low impact cardio. It is also a rather quiet machine, which is specially designed to keep your workout quiet. Alongside a free 30-day subscription to iFIT, where a trainer can automatically adjust your 24 digital resistance levels, you can also bike in a simulated area of your choosing using Google Maps. 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.

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.
