Maybe you’ve got a comfortable yoga mat going for your morning fitness routine, or you’ve picked up some good kettlebells for those grueling at-home workouts you love to hate. When it comes to building your home gym though, you’ll want to consider one big piece of equipment too, that can keep your exercises fun, while engaging all parts of your body in an active, engaging workout. Enter the exercise bike.
If you’re on the fence about committing to a stationary bike (high price tag! no space!), you’re in luck. Right now, you can get the Echelon EX-3 Fitness Bike for only $699.99 on Amazon. Regularly $1,000, this new Echelon deal on Amazon gets you $300 off the best-selling bike — a 30% discount. (If you want to order the fitness bike through Amazon but don’t have a Prime membership, you can try a 30-day free trial here.)
The Echelon bike is one of our favorite Peloton alternatives, and this deal gets you a name-brand spin bike for less than most generic models online. It’s shipping immediately too, which means you can get a new spin bike in time for next week, rather than having to wait months on end, like some of the other bikes on the market right now.
If you want to feel like you’re back in the seat at a real studio or you just want a full-body workout without leaving the house, you can do it all with the EX-3, and at a fraction of the price of competitor bikes. The bike features 32 resistance levels that you can turn up using the center knob. The ergonomic handles, meantime, allow for a number of riding styles, whether you want to get down in the saddle and accelerate, or do some push-ups while you sprint.
The EX-3 doesn’t come with an included touchscreen like the new (and currently discounted) Echelon EX5-S, but it does include a stand for your own tablet or phone so you can join a class, virtually compete with your friends, or watch something while you put the pedal to the floor. If you download the Echelon Fit app, you’ll be able to access a ton of live classes and workouts to get you through the week, whether you want to take a cycling class or do some yoga. If you order on Amazon, you also have the option to add the Echelon United Monthly Membership with full access to classes.
The bike comes in at a compact 55 x 20 x 55 inches, which won’t take up a ton of space in your living room, bedroom or garage. The padded seat and handlebars are both super easy to adjust too, to help you find your most comfortable riding position. The bike can support almost all heights and weight up to 300 pounds.
The EX-3’s price includes a one-year warranty. You can also choose to finance the bike from $22 a month on Echelon’s site. And if you need to return the fitness bike, Echelon offers a free 30-day return policy, too.
The 30% off Amazon sale isn’t tied to a specific holiday, and you don’t need a promo code to score this discount. That said, the Echelon fitness bike deal could end at any time. See full Echelon deals here.
