It’s another new year and if you’re like me, you’re reflecting on the choices (good and bad) you made in 2016. After being on a weight loss journey a few years ago, I have sadly put some of it back on and now is the time to do something about it.
I’m firing up MyFitnessPal again and planning an exercise routine that will get me back on track and hopefully create a new lifestyle I can live with. This time of year demand is high for gym memberships, so we’re skipping that routine and looking to add a couple pieces of equipment alongside our worn out treadmill in the basement. It turns out that January is a fantastic time to purchase these types of products as manufacturers are all vying for your dollars, much like buying a TV or toys before Christmas!
We’ve looked around and can find no better deals than the ones currently being offered on Amazon for a wide variety of fitness equipment and accessories. While we haven’t made our final decisions yet on which to buy (or consulted our savings account), these are some of the things that have amazing deals running right now!
