Here's the breakdown of our top 10 Prime Day deals for runners:
1. Theragun PRO
Percussive massage has emerged as a trend among professional runners and everyday athletes alike. It offers the benefits of a sports massage in the comfort of your home, and at an affordable price. These devices have been shown to release muscle tension, and Theragun is one of the best on the market. Just about the whole family of products is on sale so it's a matter of picking the one with the right size, color, and price.
The Garmin Forerunner 745 can handle any activity and was designed with triathletes and runners in mind. This Forerunner features VO2 max tracking and multiple global positioning networks. Garmin Pay has become a very helpful addition for those who like to end their runs at the juice shop...or the sports bar.
Casper Mattresses are the trailblazers regarding the mattress-in-a-box craze of recent years. The Element is perfect for athletes who like a cool draft feel throughout the night. Better sleep has a direct correlation to better performance, so consider an upgrade to your current mattress.
When it comes to at-home exercise equipment no one has dominated the headlines more than Peloton. While there are many good competitors among treadmill manufacturers, the Peloton stationary bikes are second to none. Plus, their workout classes are best at emulating the real spin studio experience.
Credit where credit is due, Apple Watch has established itself as one of the better fitness trackers out there. Its seamless connectivity with iPhones makes it simple to use and easy to integrate. We love this one for its fall detection feature which can come in handy for any trail runners or cyclists.
We discovered in a recent reader survey that 39% of you listen to music and an additional 12% listen to podcasts/audiobooks while running. If we are being honest, it's hard not to misplace these things so chances are this isn't your first time buying these. The battery on these last about 6 hours before a recharge so they should take you over the finish line of most runs.
Here's your 24 ounces to freedom. Well, at least if you fill this bottle up with water or some other hydrator you will feel a lot more free on your run. It might just be us, but a great run starts with staying hydrated all day.
Collagen peptides have been proven to support healthy joints, bones, skin, and ligaments. We've added it to our anti-aging routine (but still haven't seen the same results as Vital Proteins exec Jennifer Aniston). These supplements can add up cost-wise so if you've been on the fence about investing, now is a good time to give it a try.
These high-performance headphones provide the best secure fit around your ear while you are exercising. These buds were designed to take on sweat and any other hazardous elements you may encounter on your ride or run.
It's not our Boston bias when we say that New Balance makes some of the comfiest gear for runners. Their ICEx tech fabric holds up with all of the other bigger gear brands out there and comes in illuminating colors keeping you visible on dark roads.
