Get ready folks, because a major online shopping holiday is quickly approaching! Amazon Prime Day 2021 is happening on June 21 and June 22. Yeah, you still have time before the highly-anticipated two-day shopping event officially arrives, but given it'll have over two million deals across all its categories, there's no doubt you'll want to start planning now.
Amazon is competing to make Prime Day the largest shopping event of the entire year. This competition results in extra savings on high ticket items you’ve probably been eyeing, especially on a Men’s Health reader favorite: fitness equipment and gadgets to level up your workout routine.
Prime Day is the perfect excuse to build that home gym you’ve been dreaming about, and all on a realistic budget. While the retail giant doesn’t share much information leading up to the big event, we feel confident in our fitness deal predictions from studying past Prime Days, especially when we're always keeping an eye on Amazon fitness deals.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Historically speaking, Prime Day has been a one-day retail event set out to compete with other major holidays like Black Friday, Cyber Monday and President’s Day. It has since turned into a two-day shopping extravaganza, where Amazon Prime customers get the benefit of major price cuts on anything and everything available on the massive site. When you think about all the items sold on Amazon, this holiday becomes pretty important.
You can expect anything from lightning deals that only last a few hours to regular sales that will be discounted over the course of the two days. Amazon likes to keep customers on their toes, and we’re staying on top of the madness with this organized, updated guide to help you successfully score top-rated fitness items for less (pro tip: bookmark this page).
When is Amazon Prime Day?
This year, Amazon Prime Day falls on June 21 and June 22. Last year’s Covid exception postponed it to October, and even then, discounts and sales were through the roof. In true 2021 fashion, the epic sale will go back to its regularly scheduled programming as a summer shopping event. Amazon Prime Day 2021 will be here before you know it—so if you're in the mood to up your fitness game, be sure to give yourself some prep time ahead of the dates.
Fitness Deals to Expect on Amazon Prime Day
While Prime Day deals will virtually sweep the entire site, we are most excited about home gym equipment, tech gadgets, shoes, and protein powders. Prime Day typically marks items down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen on popular products, like the Powerbeats Pro headphones, Nike sneakers, stationary exercise bikes, and gym benches.
If you’ve never shopped Prime Day before, you’re in for a real treat. And by treat, we mean an extra chunk of change in your pocket and a whole new refresh of gear in your garage. Stick with us as Amazon Prime Day 2021 approaches, and you’ll suddenly have the home gym of your dreams and the gadgets to enhance your daily workouts.
