Black Friday deals I just couldn't give a miss in 2021

Looking at the best Black Friday deals all day is a risky business. Eventually, even if you don't want to, you'll end up comparing deals to each other and stop asking yourself the real question, "Do I need this in the first place?". Of course you do! It's such a good deal. Unmissable, even. Treat yourself.

This was precisely the thought process I went through before I purchased the below products. And although I was adamant about not getting a lot of fitness stuff this Black Friday, I ended up buying workout gear and shoes, the latter of which I really don't need as I have dozens of running shoes at home.

Aaaaaaaaanyway, as well as getting stuff for myself, I bought Christmas presents for my peeps, too, something you might want to consider doing as not only this will help you stress less in December, but you'll end up spending less too. Winner winner, chicken dinner!

What made the cut this year? Have I purchased those awesome-looking Monster, Inc. Adidas shoes I said I would if they were on offer? How about discounted barbells? Gymshark tank tops? How about the Garmin Venu 2

Here are some Black Friday fitness deals to browse also the best Garmin deals and best Fitbit deals to pore over. Peloton has an up to 70% apparel sale that is worth checking out. We also have a live blog of the best Nike and Adidas Black Friday deals.
