If you want to take your gym-free workouts to the next level, Prime Day deals on home workout essentials are a great way to add to your fitness kit arsenal while making huge savings on hundreds of top products. And, though there are fantastic offers on big ticket items like the best treadmills and rowing machines, you can also revolutionize your exercise routine with some choice budget picks.

As a fitness writer with a full schedule, I frequently find myself turning to home workout solutions to get a sweat on. Consequently, I’m a keen advocate of the flexibility of free weights (like these Amazon Basics dumbbells, now reduced to under $35 (opens in new tab)) and the power of bodyweight movements (made comfortable by a yoga mat like this one from Manduka, complete with a $40 discount (opens in new tab)) when looking to build muscle and spike my heart rate. 

With these home workout essentials, I can squeeze in a speedy 25-minute (or less) session (opens in new tab) in my garage without worrying about the time-consuming pilgrimage to the gym. 

Find my top deals below that'll make home workouts much more affordable (and save you from needing a gym membership).

When it comes to affordability, these spinlock adjustable dumbbells - now down to $30.73 courtesy of a 30% Prime Day saving - top the charts for me. They're durable, dependable and give you the chance to adjust the load to suit your fitness level thanks to their interchangeable weight plates.

(opens in new tab)Down from $429 to $364.65, these futuristic free weights are at the top end of this list's price scale. But when you consider they come as a pair with each dumbbell offering 10 different weight options (ideal for progressive strength training) they become an affordable and space-savvy alternative to a full rack of free weights. 

Manduka PRO Yoga Mat | $155 (opens in new tab)

Manduka PRO Yoga Mat | $155 | $115.56 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Yoga, Pilates, HIIT and home bodyweight workouts can help you improve every facet of fitness, from strength to flexibility. This plush 6mm Manduka PRO Mat, which has plummeted almost $40 in price during the Prime Day  sale, will make sure it's your muscles aching after each session, not your knees and spine. 

Adidas 10mm Thick Fitness Mat With Carry Strap | $35.00 (opens in new tab)

Adidas 10mm Thick Fitness Mat With Carry Strap | $35.00 | $28.02 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This cushioned fitness mat is thicker than most, making it a great choice for moves like burpees and v-ups as it will protect your back from unforgiving floors. What's more, it's now down 20%, taking the price to just $28.02.

Eackrola Reistance Bands Set Of 6 | $59.99 (opens in new tab)

Eackrola Reistance Bands Set Of 6 | $59.99 | $29.59 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
At just $29.59, this six-pack of resistance bands is now better than half-price in the Prime Early Access Sale. I'm a huge fan, as they can easily fit in a kit bag and allow you to do everything from bicep curls to squats on-the-go. With six different resistances, there's also something to challenge all-comers. 

SPORTBIT Adjustable Jump Rope | $12.99 (opens in new tab)

SPORTBIT Adjustable Jump Rope | $12.99 | $7.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
There are few cardio workouts as effective and accessible as the humble jump rope, with double-unders and cross-overs awaiting those who can master single skips. What's more, at a new low price of $7.99, this SPORTBIT option is a darn sight cheaper than a treadmill. 

Vinsguir Ab Roller | $29.99 (opens in new tab)

Vinsguir Ab Roller | $29.99 | $20.79 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Fancy an ab workout without any sit-ups or planks? I recommend this Vinsguir Ab Roller, which impressed during testing with its stable wheel and wide foam handles. It's now down 31% on Amazon, costing just over $20. 

Used right, a skipping rope, adjustable dumbbells, a yoga mat, resistance bands and an ab roller can allow you to enjoy a home workout that engages every muscle in your body and ticks off your daily cardio fix to boot.

However, if you're tempted by any of the deals on this list, there isn't time to wait around. The Prime Early Access Sale is a 48-hour event, and it comes to a close at midnight tonight. So act fast to ensure you don't miss out on some serious savings on fitness kit.
