COVID-19 isn't over by a long shot. With tight restrictions in place until the end of the year and beyond, things look set to continue in the same way until a vaccine can be rolled out en masse. Expect facilities like gyms and indoor establishments to remain in a state of flux as government guidelines continue to change.
With that in mind, use the Cyber Monday deals to get yourself equipped for the next round of COVID-19 madness: equip yourself for indoor fitness and bag masks and hand sanitiser at cheaper rates, thanks to the deals on today only.

Cyber-Monday COVID-19 deals: Indoor fitness
As gyms open, shut and reopen, you can never be sure what the guidelines will be around indoor health and fitness establishments. Sure enough, over Black Friday weekend, the most popular big-ticket items have been Cyber Monday elliptical machine deals and Cyber Monday treadmill deals, along with Cyber Monday rowing machine deals and Cyber Monday exercise bike deals.
Want an awesome home gym machine? Check out the links above, or look below for a few of the best deals around. Resistance bands and dumbbells have also been pretty popular items for smaller spaces, tighter budgets and more resistance-focused workouts.

Cyber Monday COVID-19 deals: Face masks
If you're still using blue surgical masks or finding yourself without reusables as you wash them between uses, there's a few good mask deals on as Cyber Monday begins. Masks are highly effective at reducing the spread of COVID, reducing the likelihood the wearer will pass any droplets on in addition to covering your own nose and mouth from spray.
Oakley fitted light cloth face covering in black | was £15.00 | now £10.50 from ASOS
Save £4.50 on this designer face covering, complete with sweat-wicking fabric and moisture-managing O Hydrolix technology. Great for workouts or trips to the shop.

These Reebok three-pack face masks can be washed and reused. The elasticated ear loops are a one-size-fits-all secure, snug fitting. It's a simple black face mask with snazzy branding.
Cyber Monday COVID-19 deal: Hand Sanitiser
Other than face masks and social distancing, the third trifecta of COVID-19 safety is good hand hygiene. Where you can't wash your hands (for example, if you're out and about) hand sanitiser is the best option, especially with shopping trips where you're touching a lot of items on shelves.
This Cyber Monday Amazon deal is by far the best we've found, packaging 12 bottles of Pura sanitiser for just £13.98. Check out the deal below:
Pura Hand Sanitiser Gel (Pack of 12 x 100ml Bottles) & 24 hand wipes | was £17.88 | now £13.41 at Amazon
These 12 bottles of 100ml hand sanitiser gel, plus a pack of 24 Pura hand wipes using 70% antibacterial formula for everyday use, at a great price.
