Exercising can be a pricey endeavor, with the prospect of paying a monthly gym membership or investing in expensive home workout equipment looming large. But this doesn’t have to be the case. 

To help you get started, I put my experience as a fitness writer and reviewer to good use by seeking out the best Prime Day fitness deals under $25 for developing a strong, sculpted core.

We had plenty of brilliant offers, but now that Amazon Prime Days are over, only few deals remain active. That's why we're still updating our Prime Day weights deals and Prime Day supplements deals roundups. 

When we first published this story, there were resistance bands, skipping ropes, and dumbbells you could pick up for less than $25. Right now, you can still find the Vinsguir Ab Roller for $25.99 at Amazon, saving you 24%. 

However, if you're after a bit more choice, head over to our roundup of the best ab rollers available right now. I've tested many of these to see how they fared and to recommend several ab wheels for different fitness goals.

As a fitness writer, I’ve used a lot of ab rollers. This Vinsguir model — down 24% on Amazon — is one of the good ones, delivering the smooth rolling action and sturdy feel I demand from something supporting most of my 200lb+ frame. The wider central wheel also provides a bit more stability than most ab rollers, making it a good choice for beginners. 

While strengthen your core muscle has plenty of benefits, from improved posture, to better balance, to more efficient circulation, it's important to create a well-rounded training program to target all the muscles in your body. 

Fortunately, investing in high-quality weights doesn't have to burn a whole through your wallet. There are still some great Prime Day weights deals that can save you up to 50% on some of our top-rated dumbbells and kettlebells for your home.
