There were plenty of incredible discounts on fitness trackers, smart gym equipment, and other workout essentials as part of last year's Black Friday fitness deals event. The post-Thanksgiving savings also mean it’s a great time to pick up home gym equipment. 

There are often sizable savings on big-ticket items like treadmills, rowing machines, elliptical machines, and exercise bikes. In 2021, the Black Friday fitness deals included kit from Peloton, NordicTrack, Bowflex, and Echelon. 

But it's also one of the best times of year to invest in new workout clothes, running shoes, cross training shoes, water bottles, gym accessories like yoga mats and resistance bands, weights, and smart fitness tech.

Black Friday fitness deals: More tricks to snag the best bargains

With the economy taking a big hit around the globe thanks to the ongoing health crisis, shoppers have less money to throw around – which makes getting the right deal very important. To get the most out of the online Black Friday sales, you should follow these simple rules for the big weekend:

  • Set up alerts and notifications from your favourite stores: Amazon offers its own notification service, which will ping you when it brings out a product you're interested in. You can also set up Google Alerts to search the web and get daily emails of search results for terms like "cheap treadmill deal".
  • Shop around: Some deals are going to look fantastic, with huge price cuts, but occasionally some of these prices will have been inflated before being cut. Look at other stores to find out the real value of what you're buying.
  • Check the stock levels: Most retailers will flag a product with a small message when it's low in stock. Look for this before deciding to go elsewhere, as you may come back and find it all gone. 
  • Get a Prime account: We've already spoken about Amazon and why it's so essential for getting some of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals available. However, to really get the best out of Amazon (including free shipping), you'll want a Prime account. If you don't want to continue with the benefits Prime membership delivers, then just cancel the trial. It's that simple: you won't have spent a penny, but will have already got access to Amazon's best sales.
  • Pay securely: Scammers are out there looking for your card details. Credit cards offer a more secure way to pay than debit cards, or you can set up your card on services like Paypal for an extra layer of protection. 
  • Aim for the big-ticket items first: Proportionately, you'll get the biggest savings on the biggest items. if you've been considering buying a treadmill or expensive fitness watch for a while, now is the time to shop around and pull the trigger.

From exercise bikes to resistance bands, anything and everything is discounted. The biggest discounts are often on the biggest products, as discounts are usually done on percentage to incentivise buyers. 

If you're in the market for the best elliptical machine or best treadmill, this is the time to strike, as these are the big purchases which are likely to be significantly cheaper. Likewise, for any small electronics with high prices – think Fitbits and Apple Watches – you can expect to see significant discounts, especially with last year's models. 

Finally, don't forget the smaller stuff: from resistance bands to running socks, you'll be able to pick loads of these essentials up for a song from many big outlets like Amazon.
