Amazon Prime Day – expert bargain hunter names best health and fitness deals
Anyone looking to get healthier or work on their fitness has been given a great chance to get some of the best shoes, tech and supplements for less on Amazon Prime Day.
And with lockdown leaving a lot of us carrying a little more than round the middle than we would like, the timing couldn’t be better.
But it can sometimes be hard to tell if what’s included in Prime Day is a genuine bargain or not.
The good news is Tom Church, deals expert and co-founder of money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk, has done the hard work so you don’t have to.
“Whether you’ve been saving up for a new Fitbit, wanted to buy some weights for home or simply need a new pair of running shoes, today and tomorrow is the ideal time to get what you want while saving some cash,” Tom said.
“All you need to do is make sure you’re a Prime member – and make sure you get there before the deal you’re after sells out!”
So here are his top picks across four big fitness categories: Running shoes, fitness trackers, accessories and supplements features in the Amazon Prime Day sale.
“Running shoes are an essential part of a healthy and enjoyable running routine,” Tom said.
“On Amazon Prime Day, it’s the perfect time to add to your collection and buy those pairs you’ve had your eye on for a fraction of their usual price.
“Brands such as Puma, Adidas and Under Armour are offering fantastic discounts across both men’s and women’s shoes and we’ll see this for the duration of today and tomorrow while stocks last – so be quick!”

“Fitness trackers and smartwatches are must-have tools if you’re striving to hit your exercise goals. And I call them ‘tools’ because they are more useful than gadgets or gizmos,” Tom said.
“Some have GPS to track your runs, oxygen meters to check your blood, sleep analysis and more. But for me, perhaps the best things are the reminders: ‘Hey Tom, you’re a bit lazy today. Get on it!’
“The downside is that fitness trackers are expensive. You’re looking at £100 to £600. However, Amazon Prime Day is a fantastic opportunity to bag a bargain.”

“Supplements are a great way to enhance and build on a consistent diet plan and exercise routine,” Tom said.
“Amazon offers huge savings during Prime Day, which can make a big difference to your bank balance when stocking up on supplements.
“While the length of time supplements will last for depends on the brand, if you have a favourite or have wanted to try something new, it’s definitely worth making the most of the sales and buying a few months’ worth to avoid spending more later on.
“Remember that supplements aren’t a quick fix or a replacement for healthy eating and a disciplined workout routine – and remember to read the label and only take the recommended serving size.”
