Over the last year, resigned to our homes, our fitness regimes inevitably suffered.
When gyms closed, we all looked for alternative ways to stay active and for those with the space, many transformed their homes into their very own studios. Machines like treadmills, exercise bikes and cross trainers were sold out everywhere.
For those with more compact lodgings, weights, skipping ropes and resistance bands became hugely popular to be able to continue weight training and get lean.
Studios and gym chains may be up and running again but for those who have honed the at-home workout or struggle to find the time or motivation to head to one, there’s still huge demand for equipment that can be used in the comfort of your own home.
During the Amazon Prime Day sales, attention may be turned to the tech offering – laptops, TVs or Amazon devices – but we think the fitness equipment deals are very impressive.
There’s reductions across cardio machines as well as accessories like yoga mat and punch bags.
See our edit of the best deals below to snap up during the event.
Running outside can put a lot of strain on your body but on a treadmill, it’s possible to go further for longer without the tell-tale pain due to better shock absorption. The running machines are typically very costly products so Amazon Prime Day offers the perfect opportunity to invest for less.
