Even though lots of gyms have reopened, there's plenty of people who want to shed their "lockdown belly" but don't feel comfortable going back to the gyms just yet, due to the ever-present risk of coronavirus.
We can see why: even though gyms have taken safety measures such as masks, regular sanitation stations and positioning machines to ensure social distancing, the prospect of being trapped indoors with a roomful of sweaty, heavily-breathing people is something many people won't want to take part in right now.
Fortunately, there's a solution: exercise loads of different ways with these multi-faceted Total Gym exercise stations. Right now, Target has amazing deals on the Total Gym XLS, Total Gym Apex G1 and Total Gym Apex G3 models of its collapsible, compact fitness stations. Check out the deals in full below:
Total Gym XLS Unisex Universal Home Gym Workout Machine | was $1380.99 | now $999.00 at Target
Save $380 on the biggest and best of Total Gym's awesome range. Six levels of pulley cable resistance allows you to get a great arm and leg workout on the machine. An ab crunch belt and different inclines mean the bench can handle over 80 exercises, and the machine even folds up for easy storage. No assembly required.
Total Gym APEX G3 Home Fitness Incline Weight Training Machine | was $499.99 | now $399.00 at Target
Save $100 on the price of the mid-range Apex G3. With a sliding paddleboard for core training and eight levels of resistance on the pulleys, you'll get a fully comprehensive workout station you can use in a variety of ways. Simply fold it up to free up space.
Total Gym Apex G1 Home Fitness Incline Weight Training Machine | was $369.99 | now $299.00 from Target
