Amazon Prime Day is, as the name suggests, a day (or, more accurately, days) of exclusive deals held annually that’s aimed specifically at Amazon Prime members.
The first Prime Day took place in 2015 and it has since grown to become one of the biggest retail sale events of the year, with savings to Prime members amounting to an estimated $10.4 billion in 2020 alone - and over 2 million deals expected this year. So there's sure to be plenty of Amazon Prime Day fitness deals up for grabs!
You can currently get Amazon Prime for $119 per year or $12.99 a month in the US (£79 a year or £7.99 a month in the UK.

You’ll need to sign up for an Amazon Prime membership in order to gain access to the Prime Day discounts, so you’ll need to get that before you can start bagging the sale items.
However, there are plenty of other great reasons to become a Prime member, with money-off options on all manner of items during other sale periods along with access to the likes of Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading services and more. You also get the benefit of Amazon Prime delivery, which is a step-up from the regular options.

Amazon Prime Day fitness deals - what to expect
There's plenty more to look forward to in terms of this year's Amazon Prime Day fitness deals.
Demand for fitness equipment has gone through the roof since the pandemic arrived and people have been exercising at home a lot more than they did previously. While that’s caused some issues with supplies, Amazon being the mighty global e-commerce store that it is means the online outlet often has stock where other stores don’t.
With that in mind, we're hoping to see big discounts on some of the best home workout equipment (think gym-style machines) along with smaller items such as weights and bands.
Amazon’s discounted Prime Day selection extends beyond fitness kit too, with great deals to be had on fitness apparel also. Clothing, trainers and more besides are all likely to feature in Amazon’s global money-off sales extravaganza.
Similarly, health and wellness products are also on sale. For example, save 20% on healthcare products from Amazon Basic Care, along with wellness and personal care products from other Amazon brands, such as Solimo, Revly, and Amazon Elements. Lookout for discounts on 23andMe Personal Genetic Service DNA Test Kits too. It’s all there for the taking.
It's also worth noting that Amazon won't be the only retailer offering fitness deals during the event - many other retailers typically get in on the act too, in a bid to lure you away from all those fitness goodies sitting on the Amazon website.
So as well as staying across all of the best Prime Day fitness deals on Amazon, we'll also be keeping a close eye on the likes of Walmart, Target, Nordstrom and Best Buy in the UK, and Very and Currys in the UK to bring you the best offers across the retail sector.
