The best Black Friday fitness equipment deals to bulk up your home gym
One of my biggest dreams in life is to have a full-on gym in my home. Since I live in New York City, that will never happen (unless I somehow become a countess someday and get myself a mansion). But, at the very least, it’s now that time of the year when Black Friday fitness equipment deals have me dreaming of the possibilities of a sweat box all to myself.
As the prices of covetable workout essentials get slashed, I’ve been doing some Nancy Drew detective work to find the best of the best deals that the fitness world has to offer this shopping season. If you’re like me and want to use this wallet-friendly opportunity to bulk up your home gym setup, I’ve got you. Whether you’re looking for small additions to your sweat corner like weights or stuff that’s more high-tech (hello, Theragun sale), keep scrolling for the best Black Friday fitness equipment deals you can score this season.
1. Theragun Black G3 Premium Handheld Percussive Therapy Device, $299
A Black Friday fitness equipment deal I’m particularly pumped for? The Theragun, which is getting a $100 price reduction at Walmart (in stores and online). This percussive, muscle-massaging device is the quickest, easiest way to relieve soreness in your body, and you can do it while sitting on the couch.
2. Studio Sweat OnDemand Bike Bundle Set, $1599
Workout streaming site Studio Sweat OnDemand is offering $400 off of its bike bundle set, which gives you a spin bike, heart rate monitor, wireless computer to monitor your biking stats, a Roku mount, a year’s worth of spin classes—I’m still going—and customized weekly workout and nutritional plans. So it’s literally a home gym all in one sale.
3. P.volve Ultimate Kit, $88
Functional movement-based sculpting studio P.volve has a couple of Black Friday sales happening this year. One? You can get the P.volve Ultimate Kit—which includes all of the studio’s equipment, from resistance bands to ankle weights and dumbbells—for half off, or a lifetime subscription to the low-impact workout’s streaming service for $299.
4. CAR.O.L. AI HIIT Bike, $2700
It’s not an ordinary at-home spin bike—the CAR.O.L. is personalized to your body, and works you at your maximum effort for a super-efficient, super intense (yet short) cardio workout. For Black Friday, you can get this high-tech baby for $300 off of its regular price, and make your home gym seem like it’s from the future.
5. NordicTrack Select-a-Weight Adjustable Dumbbell Set, $229
Replace that mountain of dumbbells with this pair from NordicTrack that can magically change weights. You can adjust them from 10 pounds all the way up to 55 depending on what you’re doing, which is pretty brilliant if you ask me. Grab ’em at Walmart where they’re reduced from $299.
6. Get RXd Heavy Jump Rope, $40
As we know, jumping rope is one of the quickest ways to get your heart rate up. Add to your cardio toolkit with this weighted option, which adds some (fun!!) challenge to the workout essential—you can get it for 33 percent off as the sale lasts.
7. Gold’s Gym Trainer 720 Treadmill with Power Incline, $499
Avoid winter weather running with this treadmill, which is being sold at a pretty darn low cost for one of these machines. It has all of your standard treadmill features: an LED display, speed and incline controls, and even a built-in fan to cool you off after those sprints.
8. Apple Watch Series 5 GPS, $400
Track all of that workout action with an Apple Watch, which you can score at Target for less than its list price. It’s waterproof, has built-in GPS, and tracks your heart rate and activity levels.
9. Sivan Health and Fitness Comfort Foam Yoga Mat, $20
Amazon has tons of fitness equipment deals to offer, like this $20 yoga mat which allows you to namaste from the comfort of your own living room. This one’s extra padded for more support and it’s slip-resistant, which makes it easier to flow.
10. Sunny Health & Fitness Squat Assist Row-N-Ride Trainer, $98
This glutes-plus-arm strengthening machine is super versatile and can be adjusted to work everything from your chest to your back (it comes with a training video to help ya out). It’s being sold for $52 off of its regular price, so hop to it.
11. Echelon Fitness products, 25 percent off
Echelon, a company that’s making fitness tech more accessible, is slashing its product offerings by 25 percent from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. That means you can get one of their smart spin bikes or their Reflect Mirror for a much lower price.
