Black Friday can be one of the most exciting days of the year for fitness junkies, especially those who train at home. Throw in Cyber Monday, too, and you have even more chances to stock up on the best home gym equipment without paying full price. Even if you don’t have a home gym, you can find Black Friday fitness sales on workout apparel, recovery tools, supplements, and more.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a relative who’s been dropping hints about wanting a new barbell or weightlifting belt, the Breaking Muscle team has you covered. We’ve curated a list of Black Friday sales from our favorite brands, so you can spend less time researching and more time checking off your or your loved ones’ wishlists.
The deals below are based on the information we have as of this writing and are subject to change.
Featured Black Friday Fitness Deals of 2023
Information on Black Friday fitness deals for 2023 is still rolling in. Historically, though, we’ve seen discounts on exercise equipment like top-rated adjustable dumbbells, squat racks, kettlebells, weight benches, treadmills, rowing machines, ellipticals, and exercise bikes. We’ve also seen deals on running shoes, apparel, fitness trackers, and massage guns. If you want to make health and wellness a priority this holiday season, you should also be able to find deals on high-quality collagen powder, greens powders, and other supplements.
Nearly all top fitness brands offer at least some kind of discount for Black Friday, including NordicTrack, Bowflex, ProForm, Garmin, Schwinn, REP Fitness, and Bells of Steel. Bookmark this page and check back often — we’ll keep updating it as more discounts become available.

Tips for Finding the Best Black Friday Fitness Deals
For the past couple of years, Black Friday hasn’t been just one day. Brands start offering deals as early as November 1 and run promotions and flash sales all month long. It’s worthwhile to start making your fitness wishlist as soon as possible. Otherwise, the item you want may be out of stock by the time Black Friday arrives.
Additionally, some companies offer their biggest and best deals for a limited number of hours on Black Friday. Hard as it may be to wake up early after a day of eating and lots of family time, it can be worth it to score major discounts on the best barbells, kettlebells, rowers, and more.
Research Pricing History
A common tactic amongst retailers is to jack up the prices of big-ticket items right before Black Friday and then offer discounts on the increased price. Ill-informed consumers may think they’re getting a good deal. In reality, they’re actually not saving much money at all. The discounted price usually ends up being close to the original price.
In the weeks before Black Friday, monitor the price of your desired items. You can set price alerts with mobile apps and browser extensions like Karma. Camelcamelcamel is a good resource for price-tracking items sold on Amazon. With these tools, you’ll be able to determine if you’re getting a legitimately good deal on Black Friday.
Install Browser Extensions for Coupon Codes and Cashback Rewards
Speaking of browser extensions, you may want to sign up for one that offers cashback rewards at various online stores. One of the most popular ones that I can personally vouch for is Rakuten. When you make a purchase on a participating retailer’s website, Rakuten gets an affiliate commission based on a pre-determined percentage. Instead of keeping that commission, they share it with you.
Many companies also increase the percentage you get back for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. A brand that normally offers two percent cashback throughout the year may increase it to 10 percent for these two days.
The one drawback of Rakuten is that it only pays out commissions once every quarter. If you want more immediate savings, try the Capital One Shopping or Honey browser extensions. During checkout on participating retailers’ websites, Capital One and Honey will search for the best coupon codes and apply them to your order.
Sign Up for Emails and Texts
It’s common for companies to offer exclusive deals only to customers who opt into emails and texts. If there’s a piece of fitness equipment you really want, I recommend signing up for email and/or text alerts from the company. This way, you won’t miss out on a significant discount or risk the item selling out before you’re able to jump online.
REP Fitness has offered Black Friday sales in previous years. In 2022, they offered 10 percent off an entire purchase. They also had flash sales on individual items throughout the month. We haven’t received details on their 2023 Black Friday offers but will update this page as their deals become available.
Black Friday can be a great time to buy a treadmill. Popular brands like NordicTrack and Sole offer sales throughout the year, though they typically offer the biggest discounts around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You may also have luck searching for treadmill deals on New Year’s Day and for a couple of days afterward.
Rogue Fitness has what they call “Matte Black Friday.” This event has historically run through the entire month of November. In 2022, Rogue’s Matte Black Friday event included Hot Deals on select items, dumbbells for as little as $1 per pound, and $75 max shipping on various squat racks. The event also included hundo pricing, where the cost of shipping decreases as you add more weight in products like kettlebells and bumper plates to your cart.
Rogue hasn’t released details of their 2023 Black Friday deals yet. We’ll update this page as we receive more information.
In the past, Peloton has done Black Friday sales. In 2022, they offered deals on apparel and discounted their bikes and treadmills. They also offered free accessories, like cycling shoes and workout mats, with the purchase of a bike or treadmill. We will provide more details on their 2023 Black Friday sales when they become available.
