Top products in this article:

Theragun Pro, $499 (reduced from $599)

Original Peloton Bike, $1,245 (regularly $1,445)

Amazon Halo View, $80

We’ve found the perfect fitness deals for people who want to kick their outdoor workouts up a notch, transform their living room into a home gym, easily workout while working from home or want the latest and greatest Apple Watch.

The best massage gun deals

Shop the best Theragun deals. Select Theragun devices are on sale now. 

Theragun Pro: $499


Best Buy

Theragun Pro is a professional-grade device constructed for physical therapists, trainers and other professionals, but it’s also great for athletes, however amateur. Like the Theragun Elite, it is equipped with an OLED screen and a customizable speed range of 1,750 to 2,400 PPMs (percussions per minute) with three presets. However, instead of 40 pounds of force, the Pro boasts 60 and is the only model with an adjustable arm, allowing for easier use.

The Theragun Pro comes with six attachments: a dampener, standard ball, wedge, thumb, cone and super soft tip. A two-year warranty (compared with just one with the less expensive models) makes it more appealing for anyone who might use the gadget daily. 

Theragun Pro, $499 (reduced from $599)

Theragun Elite: $297

Theragun Elite


The Theragun Elite is really simple to use — you control the intensity of the massage via an up or down press of a button and by varying the pressure you apply on your muscle. (We recommend, from first-hand experience, starting with a lighter touch.) The triangular design makes it really easy to reach all areas of your body on your own, at just the right angles — even those otherwise hard-to-reach spots on your back. It includes five attachments — a dampener, standard ball, thumb, cone and wedge.

It’s a high-end splurge, to be sure, but trust us — you’ll wind up getting a lot of use out of this massage gun once you know how good it makes you feel after a session.

The best price on the white Theragun Elite is direct through Therabody — you’ll save more than $100. You’ll get the best price on the black Theragun Elite at Amazon, where it’s on sale for $20 off.

Theragun Elite, $297 (regularly $399)

Theragun Prime: $258


Theragun Store via Amazon

Prime is Theragun’s most basic, standard-sized model, with up to 30 pounds of force. It also offers a five-speed range with customizable speed through the Theragun app and weighs 2.2 pounds. It’s also equipped with four attachments: dampener, standard ball, thumb and cone. 

This model is quite user-friendly and will suit the needs of the average person suffering from muscle soreness, tightness and pain.

Theragun Prime, $258 (regularly $299)

Theragun Mini: $199

Theragun mini


The second generation Theragun Mini weighs just 1.43 pounds. It offers 20 pounds of force and three speeds — 1,750; 2,100 and 2,400 PPMs. While the three standard-size Theragun models are Bluetooth enabled, the mini is not. The Mini may not replace the need for a full-size, full-powered massage gun, but it is a great supplementary option for anyone who travels often or wants to bring a massage gun to the gym.

The Mini is covered under a one-year warranty.

Theragun Mini (second generation), $199

Want to save some extra money? Amazon has the first generation Theragun Mini at a lower price.

“This little gem is great right after a run for easing some of the stiffness,” shared one Amazon reviewer. “I also like to use it right before going to bed — it seems to keep me from having quite so much stiffness in my quads and glutes in the morning.”

Hyperice Hypervolt 2, $229 (reduced from $299)

Hyperice Hypervolt Go 2: $129



The Hypervolt Go 2 boasts 40 watts of power, two head attachments and three speeds. Its main selling point is its extreme portability – its lack of heft is meant to literally keep you on the go.

“I was gifted a full size Hypervolt which I use regularly for my legs after runs. When I travel and do runs away from home, I surely miss my massage gun. So I purchased the Hypervolt Go 2,” wrote a verified purchaser on Amazon. “It charges quickly and is quiet. It  will definitely be a good traveling companion for races that are away from home. ”

Obé Fitness

Obé Fitness

Obé Fitness

Strive for five (workouts per week) with Obé Fitness. As the company’s mantra encourages, finding the inspiration to work out often is extra easy with Obé’s collection of more than 6,000 on-demand classes, plus 22 daily classes available via livestream. The virtual fitness subscription service offers a wide range of workout sessions, from dance, yoga and Pilates to equipment-based classes such as cycling, bounce (indoor trampoline) and foam rolling. Class lengths vary anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour, making it easy to fit in a workout around any schedule.

The benefits to Obé Fitness include the already existent bank of on-demand classes; the affordable monthly subscription cost; and the convenience of workout classes you can take in your living room. The overall neon-meets-pastel, ’80s-inspired aesthetic of every class is an added bonus, alongside the reportedly peppy and optimistic workout instructors.

An Obé Fitness subscription starts at $25 a month, but if you prefer, you can pay annually for $170 (roughly $14 a month). You can also try Obé Fitness free for seven days. 

Access classes via the Obé Fitness app, or stream them through your Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, FireTV, Airplay or a simple HDMI and laptop set-up.

Grave Rivera/ClassPass

If in-person fitness classes are more your speed, ClassPass could be for you. A ClassPass membership has four tiers available at various price points, and each tier allots a certain number of monthly credits to redeem for fitness and wellness activities in your area. Credits can apply to range of activities, from cycling classes to cryotherapy sessions. While in-person classes are clearly the focus of ClassPass, credits can also apply to virtual sessions, and a membership grants access to more than 4,000 free, on-demand online workouts.

The benefits to a ClassPass subscription include the flexibility and variety that comes with a credit system: change your fitness routine every month if you like. Going through a busy month? You can roll up to 10 credits into the next month and make up for lost time later. And if you travel frequently but don’t want to skip your workout, ClassPass offers services in cities across the country (and even some internationally) so you can take your credits on the road.

The cost of a ClassPass membership can vary slightly based on your location, but costs for the lowest plan start at $19 monthly for eight credits, and can go as high as $199 for 100 credits. Right now, you can also get up to 20 credits to try for one month free.

Future Fitness

Future Fitness

Future Fitness

Future Fitness is a wellness app that goes beyond on-demand fitness classes — although there are plenty of those included. When you sign up, you’ll be matched with a fitness expert to serve as your digital personal trainer, who will work with you to create a custom fitness plan that fits your goals, needs and schedule.

Once you’re matched with your trainer, you’ll receive weekly workout plans, along with daily check-ins, motivation quotes and critiques or guidance based on the data your trainer observes from your workout. Future works exclusively with an Apple Watch to collect your fitness data, but if you don’t have the latest Series 7, or any Apple Watch for that matter, Future will loan you one free of charge with a refundable deposit.

A subscription to Future Fitness will run you $149 monthly, but you can try your first month for $19.

Alo Moves

Alo Moves

Alo Moves

This subscription-based fitness app comes from — you may have guessed it — Alo Yoga. The maker of popular yoga-friendly clothing and workout gear, Alo Yoga also has a fitness app that is, of course, focused on yoga, offering vinyasa, hatha, ashtanga, and restorative classes. But Alo Moves also boasts a range of other on-demand workouts, such as HIIT (high-intensity interval training), barre and Pilates, as well as mindfulness sessions that include breath training and sound baths.

When you first sign up with Alo Moves, you can take a short quiz to help the app make workout recommendations based on your fitness level and goals. You can also search for classes yourself and filter by instructor, style, difficulty, intensity, and duration. Classes can last anywhere from 10 to 90 minutes, and are taught by one of more than 70 Alo-apparel-clad instructors, often in picturesque locations. On-demand classes are accessible on nearly any device, from a smartphone to an Apple TV. Live classes are only accessible via desktop or laptop computer right now.

Beyond beautiful backdrops and a wide range of class options, Alo Moves isn’t doing anything groundbreaking in the world of fitness apps. But if you’re an aspiring yogi or already love the brand’s apparel and workout gear, then this app is definitely worth trying out.

Alo Moves usually costs $20 monthly, or $200 annually. You can also try a 14-day free trial.

Apple enthusiasts, and people who strive to close their daily rings, will appreciate the limited, but still solid, workout offerings of Apple Fitness+. This app works with your Apple Watch and streams workout classes to iPhones, iPads and Apple TVs, so if you’re already outfitted with Apple’s latest tech, incorporating Apple Fitness into your life should be no sweat.

The fitness subscription offers nearly 2,000 studio-style classes across 11 exercise categories, including HIIT, yoga, core, strength, treadmill, cycling, rowing, dance, Pilates, meditation and mindful cooldown. As you participate in classes, your Apple Watch will track your progress with metrics such as heart rate, calories burned and time elapsed, as well as close your activity rings accordingly.

Apple Fitness+ costs $10 monthly, or $80 annually. Right now, Apple offers three months of Fitness+ free when you purchase an Apple Watch. You can also try the premium fitness subscription free for one month if you already own an Apple Watch.
