While we’re still waiting for the exact details to be announced – check back with us regularly for all the latest updates – the retailer has got us excited, revealing there are savings to be made on “national brand and small companies across all categories”.
When it comes to activewear and home gym equipment, we’ll welcome any discount with open arms, because the cost of staying in shape with athletic leggings, equipment and running shoes, not to mention To name just a few items from our mounting adjustment kits, can quickly add up. at the top.
Brands such as Nike, Fitbit, Adidas and Nutribullet are all featured on the site, alongside hundreds of others. So while we don’t know exactly what will be in this year’s 48 hour sale, we expect big things, especially since last year’s event was the largest from Amazon so far.
And, as always, we’re here to answer all your questions about the what, when, how, and why of Amazon Prime Day so you can get a head start before everyone else.
When will the Prime Day fitness deals start?
Amazon is keeping its cards close to its chest when it comes to official Prime Day dates, but this isn’t our first rodeo. We just learned that the 48-hour flash sale tends to land on a Monday and Tuesday, and Amazon has already told us that it will take place in July. So we take an educated guess either from July 11-12 or the following week, July 18-19, with products usually dropping by midnight on the first day.
Do you need Amazon Prime to buy Prime Day fitness deals?
In short, yes, Amazon Prime Day is only available to those who pay for a Prime membership. But, there is a cheeky way around this…
Amazon Prime membership costs £7.99 a month, or £79 for a full year – which, if you ask us, isn’t bad at all considering it gets you access to the free next day delivery, Prime Video, Prime Reading, Amazon music and even Deliveroo plus.
But, any true bargain hunter will know that you can sign up for a 30-day Prime free trial once a year to reap the rewards of Prime Day for free. You do need to enter your card details though, so be sure to cancel your trial before the period ends to ensure you don’t get charged.
What to expect from Prime Day fitness deals in 2022
Everything from treadmills to trainers was included in Prime Day discounts last year, with huge savings on big ticket items, so nothing is really out of line as far as what might be on offer. And remember, when it comes to fitness, it’s always worth looking into tech and home appliance sales, because headphones, speakers, and mixers can all help you along. your fitness journey.
The UK’s best fitness deals from last year
With an impressive £103 price cut, this Bluefin Fitness kick 2.0 folding treadmill was one of the best big ticket items at last year’s sale, dropping from £479 to £376.02 (£406.99 , Amazon.co.uk). It’s an impressive machine that can connect to your phone or tablet via the Kinomap app, has two built-in Bluetooth speakers, and folds up easily if you’re short on space.
If you’re more of a yogi than a runner, the good news is that last year the FitBeast yoga mat was discounted by around 30%, bringing the price to £19.99 (Amazon.co .uk).
But it’s not just exercise equipment that can enhance a workout, handy gadgets like Apple’s airpod pro (£189, Amazon.co.uk) are also essential for gym enthusiasts.
Last year we saw an impressive 25% off them, but our tech writer predicts the savings this year will be even bigger, especially since they’re almost three years old and an AirPods pro second generation should arrive in the fall.
Similarly, the Apple Watch Series 6 (£301.80, Amazon.co.uk) gets a generous £50 price cut, which is quite significant for Apple. And. with a new model released, that economy should only get better this year. You can keep tabs on all Apple discounts on our dedicated brand page.
When it came to activewear, there were big savings to be had on everything from sneakers to t-shirts. These Adidas men’s galaxy running shoes have been reduced from £41.84 to £29.99 (from £25.80, Amazon.co.uk) while you could also save £6 on the Under performance polo shirt Armor for Men (from £18.95, Amazon.co.uk).
