Prime Day 2020: Best gym equipment to perfect your home workout

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Amazon’s Prime Day has arrived once more, and with people spending more time at home and many gyms remaining closed, there’s never been a better time to invest in fitness gear. Earlier this year it was difficult to even find home gym equipment available online, but with many vendors now restocked, Prime Day 2020 presents a great time to score a deal. It runs until the end of Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Many of these Prime Day deals can help you start or grow your home gym, and since there’s no telling when gyms will reopen or begin operating at full capacity, Prime Day presents a great time to buy while keeping some extra money in your pocket. That’s what I call a win-win.

The best deals on home workout equipment

As the world adapts to life during a pandemic, the home workout has taken on even more popularity. Even after gyms have reopened, it’s cheaper to exercise from home and it may well ease your mind not sharing gym equipment with strangers.

Footballers have shown that it can be done, too. The majority of them came back after lockdown just fine and it didn’t take long to slip back into the rhythm of top level competition.

Amazon Prime Day has plenty of deals exclusively to Prime customers. Whether you’re getting into home fitness or

Highlights

  • Have a workout buddy who can be accountable for your daily workouts

Weight Loss: For many of us, there is a gap between wanting to exercise and finding the motivation to actually do it. This gap often results in not exercising at all. We all know how important it is to exercise on a daily basis. Not just weight loss, but it also helps in improving in overall health, fitness, strength, stamina, mobility, agility and flexibility to name a few. Regular exercise is the most effective way of being disease-free. The motivation part of it, however, is the most challenging part of working out.

Train Like A Wheelchair Tennis Champion With This Workout From Gordon Reid

While all professional sportspeople have seen their livelihoods affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns around the world, it was especially tricky for tennis players to stay in shape while stuck at home, unless they happened to have a court and hitting partner at home with them.

Together with his strength and conditioning coach Claire McDonald, grand slam title winner and Paralympic gold medallist Gordon Reid created a training programme based on what was available to him during lockdown. That meant lots of circuit and strength sessions, plus a flexibility routine, so that when the time came to return to the court Reid was ready for action.

Ahead of competing at the French Open this week, Reid shared one of his outdoor circuits that you can use whether you’re looking to get in shape for tennis or just looking to get in shape full stop. You’ll need a gym ball,

Studio Makes All Your Workout Equipment Smart

The ability to exercise at home has done a lot of good for our collective sanity this year.

People everywhere are purchasing equipment, and it feels like a new workout system launches each week. 

So, we probably don’t need more of those. Especially if, like thousands of others, you purchased one three weeks into quarantine.

But Studio is different. It’s an all-in-one smart hub for your home gym that syncs with the equipment you already have, including spin bikes, treadmills and rowers. It’s up for pre-order on Indiegogo now and is expected to begin shipping as soon as next month.

The actual device is a 43-inch vertical screen on wheels. But it’s a very intelligent screen. Because it connects via bluetooth directly to your smart equipment, so it can read the speed of your treadmill, the cadence of your spin bike and the data from your rower. It can even

Tidelands’ virtual fitness classes offer members at-home workout option | Myrtle Beach Area News

PAWLEYS ISLAND — When Tidelands Health surveyed its fitness members, they learned quickly several of their members didn’t want to come back due to COVID-19 concerns.

“We wanted to be able to reach them,” said Kim Vanlandingham, manager of Tidelands HealthPoint Center for Health and Fitness.

HealthPoint has in-person classes in Pawleys Island, which is where Tidelands does its streaming.

“There’s a lot of risk emotionally and physically associated with just being sedentary. So we wanted to make sure everybody was staying with their exercise program,” Vanlandingham continued.

That’s when Tidelands Health expedited pre-COVID plans to stream fitness classes online.

In September, it launched virtual membership for classes such as Zumba, pilates and yoga through a live-streamed format. For $15 per month, members can get their fitness classes in, from the comfort of their own home.

“In general, our facility has a strong social connection with our members,” Vanlandingham said.

Polar’s latest flagship fitness watch focuses on workout recovery

These days, the majority of wearables updates center on evolution rather than revolution since most of them are already plenty good enough. Polar’s newest flagship multi-sport watch, the Vantage V2, embraces this idea with a greater focus on the period of time around your workout. The emphasis is on determining whether you’re ready to do a full workout, and when you’ll feel the benefit of going hard on a given day.
