Best Buy is taking a step toward the future of at-home workouts, offering connected gym equipment from various popular brands both in-store and online.
The electronics retailer announced Tuesday it is selling indoor cycling bikes, compression recovery systems, fitness rollers and connected treadmills from wellness tech brands like Flywheel, NormaTec and Hyperice.
The high-end fitness equipment, now available online, will be sold in more than 100 stores by the end of this year, and Best Buy will help customers select equipment and install it after purchase.
The company says the move will help "customers use technology to live better, healthier lives" as many of the systems allow consumers to remotely connect with fitness trainers and workout classes.

“From wearable devices that track performance, to being able to stream exercise content anywhere, we see new opportunities for certified personal trainers and their clients to stay on track through smart and safe fitness experiences,” Laurie McCartney, president of the National Academy of Sports Medicine said in a statement.
The slate of new products isn't cheap.
The Hydro rowing machine, which comes with a touchscreen monitor and embedded camera, costs $2,199, while NordicTrack's commercial treadmill costs $1,999. Hyperice's suite of tech-driven recovery products range in price from $99 to $349.
The product offerings serve as Best Buy's latest move toward the intersection between wellness and technology.
Last year, the retailer acquired the connected health technology company GreatCall, which provides medical alert devices for seniors. Best Buy also sells activity trackers and smart scales for consumers looking to live a more active lifestyle.
