We know that going to the gym isn’t for everyone; some don’t enjoy the environment, others struggle to find the time. If either of these are you, then having your very own home gym could be the solution. But we’re not talking thousands of pounds worth of equipment, oh no, as the Amazon Prime sale is here and there’s plenty of fantastic fitness deals that you can get your hands on, from dumbbells, to resistance bands and even treadmills.

Best Prime Day dumbbell deals

Often the mistake people make when creating a home gym is that they think they need everything, when in fact you don’t. In my humble opinion, the best piece of home gym equipment you could have are a pair of dumbbells or adjustable dumbbells. They’re such a versatile piece of equipment that you can use to build strength, muscle and help you lose weight; you can incorporate them into your HIIT workouts, or even stick one in a backpack and up the intensity of your run. 

So instead of trying to pull out hundreds of products for you, I’ve chosen five that  can be used for strength training, mobility and cardio, that will help you work towards your fitness goals in the comfort of your own home. The best part? They won't even cost you £300.
