The best treadmills, exercise bikes, elliptical trainer and rowing machines are still in short supply everywhere online, despite the recent ease in lockdown measures. Lucky for you, this won't stop us from searching the internet for available cardio machine deals! Below is a selection of the best deals we could find at the moment, have a browse today.
• Buy weights online: THESE retailers have the best kettlebell, dumbbell, multi-gym and weight bench deals
Since the weather is getting a bit more pleasant, you have a better chance of finding a decent cardio machine for a good price too. Amazon, Argos and John Lewis still shouldn't be your primary destination but retailers like JTX Fitness, the Fitness Superstore or even Wattbike have plenty of stock and can deliver items within a reasonable time too.
• In the US? Try these retailers:
If that sounds a bit too much of an effort, we are here to help: we will do the search for you and list all the best cardio equipment deals we could find here. All you have to do is to bookmark this page and come back regularly to see if there is anything you like and if so, buy it!
JTX Fitness has some fitness equipment, like a £625 treadmill or a vibration trainer for £999, that can be delivered within 10 days if you order it today. Even more exercise bikes and rowers can be preordered in May so have a look and see if you like either of JTX Fitness' offerings.
You know things are serious when the Fitness Superstore puts a temporary £200 minimum order value on every online order, coupled up with a 30 day delivery window. Yet, there are good bargains to find here still, and since most treadmills, exercise bikes and rowing machines cost more than £200, you don't have to worry about the minimum order value anyway.
Argos' website is particularly painful to browse, items will appear as 'in stock' when in fact most usually there is only one left in a remote store in Northern Scotland. Nevertheless, Argos sells decent quality cheap fitness equipment and who knows, you might get lucky.
Decathlon sells everything from cheap footballs to thousand pound multi-gyms, but its website works similarly to Argos': you have to click on every item to see if they are actually in stock or not. Not the smoothest user experience for sure, but since they have an extensive library, it is worth to have a look around.
Wattbike has sold out two of its four products but thankfully the Wattbike Atom is still available to buy, albeit it will be delivered in 6-8 weeks. If you want something faster, you can consider getting the Wattbike Icon, which is a pricier but more competent too.
It is recommended to always check delivery times and T&Cs, at least until the lockdown is lifted. Some stores has introduced minimum order values and delivery dates can be as far as June. Avoid disappointment and read the small print before you hit the "Buy now" button.
