Daily Deals: Save On Workout Equipment, Nintendo Switch Games, and More – IGN
This weekend, you can save on a ton of workout equipment to start, or add to, your home gym. From exercise bikes, to treadmills, to dumbbells, there’s plenty to choose from. And, besides workout equipment, there are plenty of deals to keep you busy, too. From sales on Switch games that rarely go on sale, to a 75″ projector screen to play games and watch movies on, there are plenty of deals to be found this weekend.
Finer Form Indoor Exercise Bike
Amazon has a solid deal on an indoor exercise bike from Finer Form. The bike comes with every feature you’ll need, like an LCD monitor that shares your RPM, pedals that you can strap into, a water bottle holder, and wheels on the bottom of the unit for easy travel. This bike is perfect for all riders from 5′ 1″ to 6′ 3″. Also, there is a professional-grade seat for comfort while riding.
NordicTrack Select-A-Weight 55 lb. Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair)
Walmart is offering an excellent price on a pair of NordicTrack adjustable dumbbells, far lower than comparable brands like Bowflex and Power Bloack. If there’s any one piece of exercise equipment you should decide on, free weights would be a very good investment. These super popular dumbbells haven’t been discounted for months. Investing in some exercise equipment at home means there’s less of a reason to take the risk (and the extra cost) of going to your local gym. Because these dumbbells are adjustable, you don’t need a rack of individual weights lying around. Each dumbbell can be adjusted from 10 to 55 pounds.
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells
If there’s any one piece of exercise equipment you should decide on, free weights would be a very good investment. These super popular dumbbells haven’t been discounted for months. Investing in some exercise equipment at home means there’s less of a reason to take the risk (and the extra cost) of going to your local gym. Because the Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells are adjustable, you don’t need a rack of individual weights lying around. Each dumbbell can be adjusted from 2.5 pounds all the way to 52.5 pounds.
36% Off Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Barbell
The Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbell with Curl Bar is normally $599. It’s “on sale” for $100 off at Bowflex direct, but Walmart has it way cheaper right now with over $200 off. Like all the other adjustable weight sets that go on sale at Woot!, this will most likely sell out before it expires at the end of the day. Adjustable from 20lbs to 80lbs in 10lb increments.
$100 Off Nordictrack T-Series Treadmill
There’s a new $100 discount on one of the most popular treadmills on Amazon.
