Fitness deals: treadmills, ellipticals, weights on sale

Going on a fitness journey can be very tough, especially if you don’t have a lot of motivation, which is why having home fitness equipment is important, especially if you don’t want to drag yourself to a gym regularly. While that sort of equipment tends to be expensive, there are luckily quite a few home gym deals that you can take advantage of, whether it’s things like dumbells or water bottles, which is why we’ve gone out and found our favorite deals and listed them below. You can also check out some other great brand-specific deals, such as these NordicTrack deals and Bowflex deals.

Adjustable Dumbbell 55-pound 5-In-1 Single — $156, was $190

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 — $350, was $400

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

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.

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.
