On Memorial Day, we honor those who have given the greatest sacrifice for our country. In the fitness world, many gyms, like CrossFit boxes, do workouts specifically commemorating fallen men and women.
Over the weekend, several companies, like FringeSport, Titan and Fitbit, will offer some of the best exercise equipment Memorial Day sales. Included below are some of my favorite products from these brands as well as items to check out if you’re looking for a deal.
Rep Fitness: Up to 25% off
Bowflex: Save up to $300
FringeSport: Up to 20% off select equipment
Titan Fitness: Up to $80 off and dozens of products discounted

REP Fitness has some of my favorite power racks, and now they are even more affordable. I have tested and reviewed a lot of products from REP. The REP Fitness Memorial Day Sales include:
There are some great Bowflex Memorial Day sales going on. Many of these are all "bundle" deals, but you can save a substantial amount of money if you're looking to build out your home gym.
FringeSport has some great deals on fitness equipment for Memorial Day, including 15% off Wonder Bars and 20% off Milspec bumper plates and Milspec bumper plate sets. One cool thing about the Milspec plates is that, as FringeSport states, they are created to meet the durability and tolerance requirements of the U.S. Army. FringeSport notes that soldiers training for the U.S. Army Combat Fitness Test use these plates for that reason.
When it comes to affordable, quality equipment, I really like Titan Fitness. I have reviewed countless products of theirs and even wrote an article on how to build a budget home gym with Titan products. This weekend, Titan is discounting dozens of items.
Some of the Titan Fitness Memorial Day Sales include:
The name “Rogue” consistently appears on my “best of” lists for good reason: Rogue Fitness makes great equipment. The Rogue 2.0 barbell is one of my absolute favorites, and the E-coat Kettlebells are some of the best around. While the company may not have a huge sale, I do like pointing people to Rogue’s “Deals” page because you can find all sorts of hidden treasures there, like dumbbells, barbells, apparel and recovery gear.
The Get RX'd Memorial Day Sale features literally hundreds of fitness products, like power racks, Xebex cardio equipment, barbells and more. In short, their sale includes:
5% off when you spend $500 or more
7% off when you spend $1,000 or more
10% off when you spend $3,000 or more
12% off when you spend $5000 or more
15% off when you spend $10,000 or more
When you think of bikes, you think of Schwinn. For a limited time, Schwinn is taking $100 off the IC4 indoor cycling bike, which can sync with apps like Peloton and Zwift. Use the code “ICSAVE” at checkout. Schwinn is also offering free shipping on all of its indoor exercise bikes, like upright, cycle and recumbent bikes.
Fitbit runs a Memorial Day sale on fitness trackers yearly. I personally really like the Charge 4 and the Inspire 2. Seeing as how Fitbit is synonymous with activity trackers, you can’t really go wrong with any of the bands and smartwatches offered.
Speaking of fitness trackers, Garmin has a large sale going with discounts on the Forerunner 245 and the Forerunner 945. Serious runners looking for metrics really can’t go wrong by getting a Garmin. Both the 245 and 945 offer Garmin Coach as well as GPS tracking and running form checks.
MYX Fitness makes The MYX, a studio cycle bike that in many ways rivals the Peloton. This weekend, you can take $300 off your purchase and get free shipping and assembly by using the code MEMORIAL300.
Looking for a new rowing machine and a full-body workout? Hydrow might be the answer. They are knocking $350 off the Memorial Day package, which features:
The Hydrow is a beautiful machine with a fancy touchscreen. It features guided workouts ranging from short, HIIT-style sufferfests to long endurance pieces.
Horizon makes affordable cardio equipment like treadmills, elliptical machines and exercise bikes. The company is offering significant discounts on its advanced treadmills, like the 7.0 AT and the 7.4 AT Tread, knocking up to $1,000 off. You can also get an extra $50 off the T101 Treadmill and the EX-59 elliptical trainer over the holiday weekend.
From May 28 to May 31, Tempo is offering up to $400 off any bundle deal. Tempo is an advanced home gym system that features interactive virtual coaching. It uses artificial intelligence to actually scan your movements to give you instant feedback.
It’s always a good idea to check Amazon for fitness equipment because you can find affordable options. However, be careful not to get too swept up in a cheap price tag, as you want to find equipment that lasts. That said, I’ll share some products below that I know and trust that you can find on Amazon. I have also written an article on how to build a home gym on Amazon.
Exercise equipment can be expensive, but it’s typically a great investment. Still, finding fitness gear on sale is a nice break for your wallet. Here are my tips for finding the best exercise equipment Memorial Day sales:
What exactly are you looking for with your home workout? I have a great list of the best home gym equipment if you need help getting started working toward your fitness goals. Jot down the things you really want and be open to possibilities. For example, you might be looking for a pair of dumbbells, but purchasing adjustable dumbbells may be the smarter way to go in terms of the most bang for your buck.
If you know you want a treadmill or a barbell, you can start researching what exactly you need. For example, you may not need a super high-powered (read: expensive) folding treadmill if you’ll just be using it for walking indoors. When it comes to barbells, FringeSport has its Wonder Bar on sale, which comes in 20kg and 15kg options as well as bushing or bearing. Be prepared to know exactly what you need out of your equipment, whether it’s the size of a flywheel on a bike, or whether or not the heart rate monitor comes with that elliptical.
Many retailers have already launched spring and holiday sales. This page will be updated as more fitness equipment Memorial Day sales pop up! Keep it bookmarked and check back often.
Still a little lost? I have a number of guides on how to pick the best equipment for a home gym. Check out my lists for the following:
Sometimes, brands mark discounted gear as “final sale.” Be aware of all fine print you come across when looking for deals. That includes:
Is the Memorial Day weekend a good time to buy fitness equipment?
It sure is! Many brands offer sales on fitness machines at this time of year. Even if the brand you like doesn’t necessarily have a sale just for Memorial Day weekend, like Rogue, it still might have a “deals” page where you can find the equipment you want at a more affordable price.
When is the best time to buy fitness equipment?
There are several times a year when fitness companies offer discounted exercise machines and equipment: January for the New Year, Memorial Day as summer approaches, and Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year.
What fitness equipment is on sale for Memorial Day deals?
Brands across the industry discount fitness equipment over the holiday weekend. You can find treadmills, barbells, dumbbells, recovery gear, upright exercise bikes, apparel and more on sale.
After researching 14 Safety Squat Bars and testing 7 of them during training sessions featuring squats (regular, box, and front,) good mornings, lunges, JM Presses, and more, we think that the Titan Safety Squat Bar V2 is the best Safety Squat Bar for most people. Our previous pick was the EliteFTS SS Yoke Bar; although we still love the SS Yoke, version two of the Titan SSB is almost identical at a much lower price, especially when shipping is considered. It features heavy-duty steel, removable handles, thick padding, and chrome plating. There isn't a warranty which is unfortunate, but we doubt you'll ever need to use it. Read More
Adjustable dumbbells are one of the most versatile pieces of equipment you can add to your home gym. Over the past eight years, I’ve acquired and reviewed 17 of the most popular options and believe the Powerblock Elite Series are the best adjustable dumbbells for most people. There is no one better suited to give an opinion on the best adjustable dumbbells than me, Coop. I have used and reviewed more gym equipment, including adjustable dumbbells, than anyone in the world. As I write this, I’m currently staring at eight sets of adjustable dumbbells, which don’t include all of the others I currently have in my garage gym or my training studio. It’s not enough to just own them, though, as I actually use them for the bench, rows, curls, and more every day and get feedback from the home gym community the world over. In addition to that, I recommend the dumbbells that are actually the best adjustable dumbbells for most people, not the ones that make Garage Gym Reviews the most money, as you’ll see elsewhere. I am confident in that and you can be confident that when you choose our recommendations, you’ll be satisfied with your weight training when you use them.

After researching over 150 barbells and using nearly 85 of them, we've determined that the Rogue Bar 2.0 is the best multi-purpose Olympic Barbell and the Rogue Ohio Power Bar is the best powerlifting bar for most people for 2021. Factoring in price, warranty, performance, and availability, these bars stand out amongst the rest. We'd rather not have the same company hold both of the top spots, but it's hard to argue against the value these bars provide. Read More
After researching over 50 power bars and legitimately testing 11 of them, we've determined that the Rogue Ohio Power Bar is the best power bar for most people. Considering the price, tensile strength, warranty, performance, knurling, availability, general consensus, and durability, the Rogue Ohio Power Bar offers the best quality for the price of any powerlifting barbell currently on the market.
