Of course, exercise also counters the effects of holiday cookie splurging. The working-out-at-home trend is here to stay, and there’s no excuse not to workout when the gym is at home. Plus, home gym equipment is more advanced than ever, compact, and affordable. Here are some amazing deals to scoop up now, just in time for a post-workout recovery eggnog or pie.

Bowflex Max Trainer M6
I have long coveted the MaxTrainer; this no-impact workout can be as hard or easygoing as your fitness level dictates. A professional-quality machine, the motion is a hybrid between stair and elliptical, but with better muscle activation than either, and 16 levels of resistance. The Max Trainer M6 is high-tech too, with a heart rate monitor, USB charging port, and more neat features. Besides that, the big selling point of these is the compact build, which is far smaller than a treadmill. These fit in tight spaces that will not accommodate other machines. Right now, score $400 off regular pricing and free shipping. At that price, I may even opt-in to the home assembly help to make the setup quick and easy. They also have accessories like variable kettlebells and studio cycles on sale. Now, where are those holiday cookies? The sale ends on November 29.
Horizon Fitness, 5.0 IC Indoor Cycle
We’re fans of Horizon Fitness products, which also have a slightly lower price point than competitors. This Bluetooth-compatible studio cycle measures just 47” long and 85 lbs, so another great contender for smaller footprint picks. Other attractive features include that no subscription is required (though optional, if you prefer) and a quiet magnetic flywheel. They also have deals on accessories like dumbbells; just use code BF30 to get the discount. Horizon Fitness, 5.0 IC Indoor Cycle is a Peloton class-compatible studio cycle for just $599. Offer expires on November 29.
The DB Method
I’ve already covered why I love the DB method, but the brand rarely offers sales, so we’re flagging this great deal available for Black Friday; 30% off sitewide, including their core product, the squat machine, and accessories. Consider a bundle, because the accessories are fantastic to use. This is one of the most challenging, no-impact workouts for the lower body, turning squats into cardio. Unlike freestanding squats, the machine helps protect knees and hips from injury. The brand also offers a ton of workout videos free on YouTube. Now $230, regularly $329
The futuristic Mirror from Lululemon brings every type of fitness studio into your home. Otherwise an unobtrusive device, the mirror is popular for the ability to stream yoga, cardio, boxing, or whatever type of class your heart may desire, straight into your home. It also has a camera, so you can get feedback from personal trainers in real-time, or join friends in a class. It’s the next best thing until we have hologram personal trainers. Mirror does require a membership but that includes discounts on in-person classes too, should you venture to a studio. The least expensive model is usually $1495 but during the brand’s big sale, it’s only $795, nearly half off. There are three additional packages that include accessories like a mat, foam roller, yoga block, etc. You can try it in your home for 30 days and Mirror offers free returns--making this big purchase risk-free.
Nautilus T618 Treadmill
A treadmill is one of the best, low-impact, high-results cardio machines you can use. If you don’t care to jog or run, slowly building up walking on a high incline is one of the most deceptively challenging workouts you can do. Nautilus, a well-respected brand in the fitness industry, has the T618 treadmill marked down by $600 and free shipping, making this treadmill just $899 right now. The capable speed is up to 12 miles/hour and the incline will go up to 15%, so whether you are new to fitness or ready to run, this is great all-purpose equipment. The built-in fan does it for me. This sale ends soon, but Nautilus is sure to extend other savings through Black Friday.
