We've rounded up the very best deals on home gym equipment to help you stay in shape indoors. 

Your regular gym may be shut, and you might not be able to get outdoors as often as you'd like, but that doesn't mean your fitness has to suffer, and with the right home workout equipment you can stay in shape without setting foot outside.

We've hunted down the best deals on a range of essential home gym equipment, including fitness trackers to keep you motivated and log your progress, treadmills and exercise bikes. We'll be adding more products every day too, including weights and resistance bands, so bookmark this page and check back regularly.

Bear in mind that treadmills are proving particularly popular at the moment, and many retailers have sold out completely. There are still some excellent models around, which we've rounded up below, but they tend to be towards the more expensive end of the market. If you're working to a budget and don't mind switching up your usual workouts, you'll find exercise bikes are a more affordable option.

Fitness trackers

Fitness trackers aren’t just useful for running and cycling outdoors. While you won’t be able to use their GPS functions indoors, most of today’s best fitness trackers also include programs for tracking indoor activities, including treadmill running, using a static exercise bike, aerobic workouts and weight training.

Setting daily goals can be a great way to keep yourself motivated when you can’t get to the gym, and you can monitor your progress using your fitness tracker’s accompanying app.

Treadmills

The best treadmill deals

A treadmill is a great way to get some good quality cardio indoors, and choosing the right one will help you work out in all conditions, long after the current crisis is over. No more worrying about fitting your training in during icy conditions, strong winds, or late at night. 

There are lots of factors to consider when buying a treadmill. Ideally you’d try out various models in a showroom before making your choice, but since that’s unlikely to be possible in the near future, you’ll have to make your choice depending on how often you’ll be using it, your available space, your budget, and which features you need.

Exercise bikes

The best exercise bike deals

When you can't get out on the roads or the trails, a home exercise bike can help you keep on top of your fitness. There's a huge range to choose from, and as with treadmills, your choice will largely depend on how often you're planning to use it, your budget, and your style of riding. Are you looking for something for brief, intense spinning sessions, or an exercise bike for replicating those long weekend rides?

There are several different types of exercise bikes to consider: upright bikes, which are a good choice for regular home workouts and are the best choice if you're new to cycling or just getting back into it; indoor studio or spin bikes, which are great for keen road cyclists and intense spin sessions; and recumbent bikes, which are much easier to use if you have limited mobility.

Hand weights

The best hand weight deals

A set of hand weights will help you step up from bodyweight exercises, and push yourself that little bit further. Many retailers are now sold out of beginner-friendly sets, but there are still some great options around if you know where to look. We recommend choosing a set with a soft foam or silicone coating to avoid scratching your floors and other surfaces.
