At-home fitness equipment: Get 20% off Peloton bikes

Amazon Prime Day includes deals on both Peloton bike options.

Peloton Original Bike


Top features of the Peloton Original bike:

  • 22" tilt touch screen, which tilts to accommodate different heights.
  • Resistance controlled with a manual knob 
  • Resistance levels and speed viewable on the touch screen along with suggested metrics from the teacher (when doing Peloton classes)
  • 2-channel rear-facing stereo speakers with 16-watts of total power
  • Access to live leaderboard and 50+ instructors from which to choose,
  • Delivery and setup 

You may have heard about a recall related to the original Peloton bike. In the spring of 2023, Peloton executed a voluntary recall to alter the seat post to make it more sturdy. They sent replacement seat posts to any eligible customers who requested them, then updated the bike's seat post so all current models feature the new setup.  

Original Peloton bike with 22" tilt screen, $1,145 with Prime (reduced from $1,445)

$1,145 at Amazon

Peloton Bike +


Like Peloton's original bike, the Peloton Bike + offers manual resistance, but this bike also offers auto-resistance, which automatically changes to meet your instructor's cues. The 2.2 speakers are front-facing here with 26 watts of total power, coupled with two rear-facing woofers. That means big sound whether you're on or off the bike.

The biggest perk to this leveled-up bike is the touchscreen, which is larger and swivels 360 degrees. That screen becomes important for those utilizing all the weight, yoga, Pilates, stretching and bootcamp classes offered on the Peloton app, which you can access through the bike's touchscreen. Your bike quickly becomes a personal trainer (Ardrian Williams why so many deadlifts?) with one quick spin of the screen. 

Top features of Peloton Bike +: 

  • 24" rotating touchscreen
  • Manual control know with option for auto-resistance
  • 2.2 channel front-facing speakers
  • 2 rear-facing woofers.
  • All the features of the original Peloton bike.

This bike is also $300 off now.

Offering a killer workout that targets more muscle groups in less time, Vinsguir's ab roller offers a challenging ab workout that offers a relief from endless crunches that don't always yield results.

Ab rollers take practice, but provide an efficient way to target core muscles, while also helping to strengthen hip flexors and the lower back, all necessary to provide long-lasting core strength and stability.

Sole Fitness E35 Elliptical


Driven by a whisper quiet system, the Sole Fitness E35 Elliptical (‎26.38"D x 32.28"W x 8.66"H) earns 4.4 out of 5 stars from buyers who "love this product." We like E35's unique pedal design, which features a 2-degree inward slope to reduce ankle and knee stress. We also noted Sole's four back wheels, there for a smoother and more stable ride than other at-home ellipticals. The Sole Fitness E35 includes an integrated tablet holder for smart phones or mobile devices.

One note: some reviewers commented that assembly wasn't difficult, but did take some time. While it can be assembled as a solo job, we suggest grabbing a buddy or family member to speed up the assembly process so you can get to work(out). It's now 45% off for Amazon Prime Day.

Sole Fitness E35 Elliptical, $1,100 (reduced from $2,000)

$1,100 at Amazon

Niceday Elliptical Machine


Reviewers promise of easy assembly and Niceday's promise of a "hyper-quiet" magnetic drive system had us digging deeper into the Niceday Elliptical Machine (48"D x 25" W x 62"H).

A 16 lb. flywheel and 16 resistance levels provide double the resistance levels than similar products. Its 400 lb. weight capacity and heavy-duty base, which is made from extra-thick commercial steel, make this model more stable than similarly priced machines.

Be sure to apply the Amazon coupon before checkout to get the best deal.
