The past year has been rough, to say the least, with many of us forced to look inward (mentally and physically) for reflection and inspiration, not to mention get creative with our fitness routines—back in March, when kettlebells were flying off the shelves, people were reaching for cans and anything else they could get their hands on in order to maintain their gains.
Ahead of the new year, whether you’re looking for a warmer, more distanced alternative to your typical outdoor/gym routine, or to kick-start your health and fitness journey, an at-home treadmill is one of the safest, easiest ways to ensure you get your heart rate up—and Cyber Monday presents the perfect opportunity to score one at a competitive price.
From lean machines that can be slipped under your WFH desk or stowed behind your couch to seriously smart steppers that will keep you motivated and connected (and everything in between), read on as we break down some of the best Black Friday treadmill deals available for your shopping pleasure (along with some recommendations from running coaches on which ones they recommend).
As we head into colder months (when many of us get the winter blues, on top of an already sad year), we’re probably going to need those extra endorphins.
Browse Amazon for a serious attention to detail (including helpful product descriptions and comparisons, extensive reviews, and seemingly endless supply). Some of the names that stood out here include GYMAX, Sunny Health, MaxKare, and NordicTrack.
Best Buy has one of the best selections of high-end treadmills, if you’re looking to splurge on something that you’ll have for years. Here, you’ll find a rare deal on the Bowflex treadmill, as well as sales on runners from NordicTrack, Pro Form, and more.
Speaking of NordicTrack, the fitness retailer has its own sale going on now for many of its popular treadmill models, including this entry-level one that running coaches recommend.
Likewise for Pro Form, where you’ll find deals on its buzzy smart treadmills.
Visit Walmart for a wide assortment of fitness gear—and especially treadmills—with different priorities and price points to suit your personal needs. Last time we checked, the retailer had a healthy mix from well-known brands like GoPlus, XTerra, and Reebok, as well as some new and lesser known names in the game.
Dick’s Sporting Goods views running as, well, a sport, and if you’re into sports, this is one of the biggest Black Friday sales to watch. Check out the site to score major savings on treadmills (there are currently 17) from brands like Horizon Fitness, Sole, NordicTrack, and beyond.
Look to Target’s workout section for a smaller yet thoughtful curation of sleek treadmill machines from select brands such as Living Essentials.
