There are huge discounts on offer as part of Amazon's new Prime Big Deal Days sale event, including up to $230 off top products from NordicTrack, Bowflex, Flybird and more.
As a fitness writer, my top pick so far is the NordicTrack iSelect Adjustable Dumbbell; an innovative and versatile at-home training tool which is now better than half price. Although the $70 discount on the Bowflex SelectTech 840 kettlebell runs it a close second.

Prime Day weights deals FAQs
When is Prime Day?
This year, Amazon's summer Prime Day event started on Tuesday, July 11th, and drew to a close at midnight the following day.
The Amazon Prime Big Deal Days event is a surprise new addition to the online retailer's calendar, providing exclusive offers to Prime members on October 10th and 11th.
The original Amazon Prime Day started in 2015 to celebrate Amazon's 20th anniversary and now gives Amazon Prime members 48 hours to make the most of thousands of exclusive deals.
Other retailers and companies often run similar sales at the same time, so it’s also worth monitoring other sites for significant discounts. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled to see if the same applies for the new Prime Big Deal Day event.
How do you choose a Prime Day weights deal?
Dumbbells and kettlebells are fantastic tools for learning the fundamentals of strength training, and reaping the many benefits of this type of exercise.
Challenging your muscles by lifting weights can help you build strength and muscle, creating a fit and functional body that moves better and is more resilient against injury.
Dumbbells and kettlebells are also useful if your goal is to lose weight. As well as raising your heart rate and causing you to burn calories during your workouts (particularly during a workout style like high-intensity resistance training), building muscle will also boost your metabolism long-term.
This is because muscle is a metabolically active tissue, taking more energy for your body to maintain so you burn more calories at rest.
However, to achieve the stimulus needed to see many of these benefits, you need to find a dumbbell or kettlebell weight that challenges you (this is known as the progressive overload principle).
So, when choosing the right weights deals, use our handy feature to find out "What dumbbell weights should I use?"
What makes a good Prime Day weights deal?
Looking back on last year’s Prime Day weights deals, we witnessed big fitness and health brands such as Kettlebell Kings and Bowflex make reductions to some of their most popular exercise equipment and accessories.
So far during the Prime Big Deal Days event we've seen a new batch of products from top brands tumble in price, with the NordicTrack iSelect Adjustable Dumbbells falling by 50% and the Signature Fitness fixed weight hex dumbbells boasting an even more significant 70% discount.
However, there's more to making a good purchase than just numbers.
A good weights deal is one which not only offers a great saving, but also provides a product that will elevate your training.
I've tried to include dumbbells and kettlebells which not only represent excellent value, but can also be used in a huge variety of home workouts, including many of the ones we post each week.
Why buy Prime Day weights for your home?
Strength training is one of the best ways to stay in shape at any age. Don't believe me? Then just ask Chris Hemsworth's personal trainer, who recently shared this "longevity workout" on Instagram.
But buying a membership to a gym, then commuting there and back, can be a pricey, time-consuming affair.
Owning a selection of dumbbells, kettlebells and or a barbell allows you to save time and money by training at home, while still enjoying the many positive impacts strength training can bring.
