With the cost of living, energy prices and fuel prices continuing to rise in the UK, many of us are on the lookout for the best deals and money saving tips, so that we can still do the things we love within our budget. When it comes to fitness, there are a number of financially savvy options that can help you get more for your money. From home workouts, to sharing memberships with the whole family and unmissable Black Friday deals, we are sharing our top tips for saving money on fitness this Black Friday.
Working out from the comfort of your own home has a number of cost and time saving benefits. Home fitness memberships can cost less than normal gym memberships, whilst also providing you with a wider range of guided workout options. You also cut down travel expenses when you are working out at home (i.e., fuel or public transport) and save time. When you switch to home workouts, you can choose the exercise classes you want to do, at a time that suits you.
Another great way to save money on exercise is to share a fitness membership between the whole family. You can split the cost between everyone, rather than having to pay for individual memberships separately. When you purchase one Echelon Fit Premier Membership, you can create up to five separate user profiles, allowing you to workout alongside, compete with, and track the progress of your family. However, not all fitness apps or gyms allow for membership sharing, and so it is important to find out whether this is included in a membership before signing an agreement.
Another way to save money on fitness is to pay for a long-term membership agreement upfront, rather than opting to pay monthly. As with car insurance, paying for your fitness membership for the year in one single payment can work out significantly cheaper than paying for your membership on a monthly basis over the year. At Echelon, you can save over £240 if you sign up to our two-year membership plan!
Whilst buying exercise equipment can be a big financial decision, it should be viewed as a long-term investment that will continue to save you money in the long run.
When it comes to purchasing exercise equipment for your own home, if you are undecided on what equipment to purchase, then we would recommend investing in a multi-use option, such as the Echelon EX-5s Connect Bike, which features a built-in screen that can flip 180° for off- bike workouts with the Echelon Fit App. As the name suggests, multi-use exercise equipment offers more than one workout option, allowing you to switch up your at home exercise routine, and get more for your money.
If you worked as a frontline worker during the pandemic, either as an NHS worker, within the emergency services, armed forces, transport services, or as a teacher, then you may be able to get a discount on your fitness equipment. At Echelon, we currently offer an exclusive discount across our full product range for all frontline workers. Find out more about our frontline worker’s discount.
If you are looking to buy exercise equipment for your home workouts, then Black Friday is the best time to make this purchase, as the majority of retailers have their biggest savings on their top fitness equipment.
At Echelon, we have unbeatable deals on a wide range of our exercise equipment for Black Friday 2022. With savings up to £300, you don’t want to miss out on the deals. See our full list of Black Friday offers here.
