8 Black Friday Fitness Deals You Need To Take Advantage Of While You Still Can
Shopping malls are obviously a fashionista's stomping ground all year long, but that's especially the case the morning after Thanksgiving. Sephora and Ulta tend to beauty gurus on the hunt for a bargain fix, and gamers can get lucky in stores like Best Buy and Game Stop — but what about those of us pursuing that #FitLife? If you’re committed to the cause, Black Friday fitness deals are yours for the taking; you just have to know where to look for the best steal.
Maybe it’s because workout equipment and athleisure pieces aren’t exactly on everyone’s radar when it comes to shopping, but I promise, if those items are on your list, a little bit of research goes a long way to finding some killer Black Friday deals. Rest assured, fitness brands are going all in on the Black Friday phenomenon, and they're making their move to get on your radar.
Considering health and wellness has blossomed into such a huge thing on social media platforms in recent years, fitness labels have taken their cue in being strategic with their sales. My advice would be to look out for discount codes on your favorite bloggers' Instagram and YouTube bios, in addition to signing up for email alerts on the latest discounts. While you're putting in the groundwork, check out some of these Black Friday fitness deals you won't want to miss out on.
1. The Comfiest Workout Leggings
Gymshark celebrates Black Friday with a week-long sale that's already begun, and if you follow the brand at all, you know it sells out fast, so the time to shop is now.
The entire site features mark downs of up to 50 percent off, and while I think every collection is worth treating yourself to, I highly recommend snagging a pair of Gymshark's signature flex leggings while you can.
Available in gorgeous shades like rich purple marl and beet marl, these workout leggings are so freaking soft, flatter every kind of curve, and (coming from a babe with no butt), contour the booty oh-so-nicely.
2. Supplements That Actually Taste Good
If you're someone who swears by supplements, you know every fitness buff has his or her go-to powder for their regimen.
Personally, I'm a die-hard fan of Crush Fitness programs, and was thrilled when the label expanded into supplements, too. This Black Friday, its knocking 40 percent off all supplements while supplies last.
As a bonus, the brand is also adding a workout guide to every supplement purchase, free of charge. So, not only will you be introduced to the delicious taste of citrus sunrise and/or tropical punch, you'll also have the chance to try one of its amazing programs for free. Now that's a steal.
3. Adorable Water Bottles
Hydration is a key component to keeping your energy up through every workout, and even though water bottles may be the last thing on your accessories list, there's no denying S'well water bottles are styling.
According to SELF, S'well and its sister site Sip by S'well are offering consumers 20 to 25 percent off their entire purchase starting on Thanksgiving and ending on Cyber Monday.
4. See What ClassPass Is Really All About
Personally, I'm the type of fitness buff who requires a lot of variety in her routines. If you prefer hopping from yoga one day to spin the next, investing in a ClassPass might be the best way to go.
ClassPass gives you the opportunity to experience all kinds of workouts and studios in your area, from barre to boxing, and everything in between. As awesome as that sounds, it can definitely be a little pricey. This Black Friday, however, applying the code BLKFRI17 at checkout will score you up to 10 classes free.
5. A Trendy Fitness Tracker
Wearable tech is still a huge deal, whether you're a self-proclaimed fitness guru or you're just curious about what your body's up to day in and day out.
Fitbits are definitely a show-runner in the category, and lucky for you, the Fitbit Charge 2 is on sale at Target this Black Friday. CNN reports that the fit watch, which tracks your heart rate, exercise, and sleep, is being significantly marked down from $149.95 to $99.99.
6. Sports Bras That Actually Support You
It's no secret that high-quality sports bras are an investment. Flimsy materials don't offer the proper support we need, but with a $15 price tag, oftentimes women are fine settling for less than the best.
On Black Friday 2017, athletic wear label Sweaty Betty is marking down its merchandise by 25 percent site- and store-wide through Cyber Monday. The brand's athleisure is flawless, but if you're scouring deals primarily for functionality, the Victory Padded Run Bra provides high support, breathable fabric, and is designed with a racerback that provides a sexy aesthetic.
7. Headphones That Won't Break On You
Whether you're a marathon runner or lifting heavy at the gym, pump-up music is a must. I don't know about you, but I am forever struggling to find a pair of headphones that are of a decent quality, but won't cost an arm and a leg.
Skullcandy's wireless buds go on sale for $25 on Black Friday. Considering these babies automatically pair with your smartphone, and are designed with rubber cushioning so your ears aren't sore while you're getting sweaty, I'd go as far to say you should buy two for the price of one.
8. A Yoga Class To Get Your Zen On
Interested in doing yoga outside your living room walls? CorePower Yoga studios invite you to practice in a group setting this holiday season.
With a variety of classes to choose from depending on your interests and experience level, CorePower is a great way to grow in your meditative practice. To entice you even further, the company is offering a $100 gift card for just $80 when you use the code GC2017.
