Despite Amazon Prime Day (opens in new tab) taking place on 12th-13th July, we’re already getting ready to shop the sale, following the early deals being released on 21st June. Alongside popular tech products like TVs, laptops and headphones, another department that we think is going to have some big price cuts this year is gym and fitness.
While we’re not completely sure what to expect from the Prime Day 2022 sale just yet, T3 has been reporting on Prime Day for years so we’d like to think we’re pretty good at predicting what’s coming up. The early deals are also giving us a strong indication that the Prime Day sale will be stocked full of fitness equipment, tech and clothing, from big name brands.
Health and fitness is incredibly popular all year round, whether you’re a fitness fanatic or casual gym goer. As Prime Day takes place in July, we imagine that many people will be looking to get in shape for the summer months so to reflect this demand, Amazon could potentially have more fitness products up for sale.
From dumbbells to sports bras, fitness trackers to yoga mats, here are our fitness deals predictions, brands to watch out for and early deals to shop in the Prime Day sale.
What to expect from Prime Day Fitness deals 2022
The first prediction we have for Prime Day is on fitness trackers and smartwatches. For people who have big fitness goals or just like to see how they’re progressing with their workouts, the best fitness trackers (opens in new tab) are the best way to do this. These pieces of fitness tech are incredibly popular to help you check your step count, monitor your heart rate, assess your sleep and stress levels, and most of them will give you workout ideas. We’ve already seen the Fitbit Inspire 2 (opens in new tab) drop in price by 36% in the early Prime Day deals so we hope to see some popular models from Fitbit and Garmin being discounted this year.
Alongside this wearable fitness technology, we also predict that fitness clothing like activewear, shoes and accessories will be involved in the Prime Day sale. We hope to see trainers and hiking boots getting the biggest discounts this year from a wide range of popular brands. One great Prime member benefit for Prime Day (opens in new tab) is Try Before You Buy. Try Before You Buy (opens in new tab) allows Prime members to pick 6 eligible clothing items from the Prime Wardrobe and try them on for 7 days for free. When your try-on period is up, you pay for what you want to keep and send back what you don’t. This applies to activewear so if you want to buy a pair of the best running shoes (opens in new tab), you can try them on and make sure they fit nicely before you buy them.
As home gyms have become increasingly popular due to lockdown and the pandemic, we anticipate that big and small fitness equipment and machines will be involved in the Prime Day sale this year. We expect to see weight benches, dumbbells, resistance bands, foam rollers, turbo trainers, skipping ropes and yoga mats involved. Bigger machines might be a little trickier due to their original retail prices but if they are discounted, we predict deals on treadmills, exercise bikes and rowing machines.
A bonus prediction we have is on healthy kitchen appliances like blenders, juicers and protein powders. You can find out more about our kitchen tech and appliance predictions in our Home & Kitchen Prime Day deals (opens in new tab) post.

What fitness brands can I find this Prime Day?
When it comes to shopping gym and fitness deals on Amazon, there are many brands to choose from. Focusing on wearable fitness tech and fashion, Fitbit and Garmin are our top contenders and we hope to see big discounts on both of them. In the Black Friday 2021 sale, the best Fitbits (opens in new tab) were extremely popular from Amazon so we hope to see deals on the Versa, Sense and Inspire ranges.
For activewear, Puma was mentioned by Amazon when it announced its Prime Day date (opens in new tab). We’ve already pointed out a great deal on Puma trainers above and we hope to see similar deals in the Prime Day sale this year. Alongside Puma, we also hope to see gym clothes, shoes and accessories from brands like Nike, adidas and Speedo.
When it comes to fitness equipment, we’re already seeing big price cuts on JX Fitness so we think we’ll see brands like this in the sale, including Sunny Health & Fitness, Gymform and Ultrasport.
