If you're on the hunt for the best Black Friday fitness deals, welcome to the club. As woman&home's digital health editor, as well as a weightlifter and runner in my spare time, I know only too well the importance of having good quality activewear and fitness essentials.  

Having the right gear means you're supported in your exercise, whatever it might be, so you'll likely enjoy it more. You're also more likely to save money in the long term as you won't have to replace your kit over and over again. But as we all know, premium costs money - so I'm also always searching for great offers on the best brands. 

From the best Fitbit deals to unique offers in the Sweaty Betty Black Friday sale, I've seen some stellar savings on my favorite activewear, accessories, supplements, and more. These are a few of my top picks that I believe are worth shopping for this Cyber Weekend... 

Where to find the best deals on my favorite fitness brands

The Black Friday fitness deals I'm shopping in 2022 

1. Fitbit Versa 4: £199 (opens in new tab)

1. Fitbit Versa 4: £199 £164.93 | Amazon (opens in new tab)

The Fitbit Versa 4 (opens in new tab) is my new favorite Fitbit - if I hadn't already got one, this would be my first purchase over Black Friday weekend. I love the sleek full-color display, intuitive slides, and easy-access it offers to a range of 40 different exercise modes. It's a huge upgrade to my worn out Fitbit Versa 3 - which is also on sale. This one comes with 6-months free Premium too, meaning I've also had better insights into my sleep and stress scores over the last few months.

£35 is the biggest discount we've seen this Black Friday too - impressive considering this is the newest Fitbit (opens in new tab). And with next-day delivery available for Prime member, you can be tracking your steps by the end of the week. 

2. Shokz OpenRun Pro: £159 (opens in new tab)

2. Shokz OpenRun Pro: £159 £127 | Amazon  (opens in new tab)

As a keen runner, walker, and cyclist, I love listening to music on the move but it's not always safe to block myself out from the world with cars and other people around. Enter Shokz, and specifically the OpenRun Pro headphones, which are now on sale from Amazon with an impressive £32 discount. 

Lightweight with a barely-there feel, these headphones work through bone conduction. This means you can listen privately to your music, podcasts, and audiobooks while also keeping a ear on what's going on around you. Shokz are also waterproof, so you can take them in the pool with you too.

3. Sweaty Betty Gym Power Leggings: £80 (opens in new tab)

3. Sweaty Betty Gym Power Leggings: £80 £40 | Sweaty Betty  (opens in new tab)

If you're looking to revamp your gym wardrobe this Black Friday, look no further than Sweaty Betty. The latest saving on the famous Sweaty Betty Power Leggings (opens in new tab) is the best I've seen all year - now 50% off, bringing the hefty £80 price tag down to a reasonable £40. 

These are some of the best workout leggings I've ever worn. They're great for all kinds of activities from running to strength training, thanks to the squat- and stretch-proof material, dual pocket system, and pull-cord waistband, which keeps them from falling down. 

4. Hoka Clifton 8: £130 (opens in new tab)

4. Hoka Clifton 8: £130 £89.99 | Hoka One (opens in new tab)

Never underestimate the positive impact a great pair of running shoes can have on your workout - both for your progress and your ankles. I've only ever worn Hoka trainers and the Clifton range has been my go-to since the beginning. 

The Clifton 8 is the latest model, now 30% off in the Hoka One Black Friday sale. Also available in a new exciting range of colors in the sale, I'll be picking up another pair this weekend.

5. Salomon Adv Hydra Vest 8: £80 (opens in new tab)

5. Salomon Adv Hydra Vest 8: £80 £58.99 | Amazon (opens in new tab)

Whether you're heading out on a long walk or looking to take up trail running, a hydration vest always comes in handy. This one by Salomon is one of the best and comes complete with detachable water bottles, a pocket at the back (which fits a hydration bladder) and additional smaller pockets to store your valuables when you're out and about. 

I'll be picking up the Hydra Vest in black while Black Friday fitness deals last but it's also available in a stunning letterbox red for those more adventurous than me in their running outfits. 

£31.99 (opens in new tab)

6. JS Health Protein and Probiotics: £31.99 £23.99 | Amazon (opens in new tab)

As one of the best protein powders (opens in new tab) for gut health, I was super excited to see the major deals on JS Health by Amazon this Black Friday. 

Available in delicious flavors like Chocolate Brownie, Vanilla Bean, Cinnamon Scroll, and Cookies&Cream, and complete with additional probiotics, this protein powder is my go-to at the moment. Top tip: Add to overnight oats for a tasty start to the day. 

What fitness essentials are worth buying on Black Friday? 

We all know that there are some brilliant Black Friday fitness deals but some brands do offer great savings at other times of year. If you've only got a limited budget this Black Friday or you're looking to treat yourself to one product, make sure you're shopping the essentials that likely won't be on offer again soon. I've highlighted the best ones below...

On workout clothes, it's rare to see a saving as good as the Sweaty Betty Black Friday sale. In the UK, you can score up to 25% off site-wide with 100s of styles also available with 50% off - including Sweaty Betty's Power Leggings, coats, and a range of footwear. Across the pond, Sweaty Betty in the US (opens in new tab) is offering customers 30% off. There's also deals on Lululemon Black Friday across both mens and womenswear.

There are some amazing deals on the best running shoes at the moment from the likes of Saucony, Adidas, and Hoka (my personal favorite). If you've had your gait tested and are looking to secure a deal on your perfect pair, there's no better time to shop than now as savings on specialist footwear don't tend to come around too often. The same goes for hiking footwear, with Merrell coming up tops in the Black Friday savings on the best walking shoes.

On self-care, we're seeing amazing savings on wellbeing products as part of the Neom Black Friday sale. The magnesium body butter is a personal favorite of mine and I'd really recommend it to anyone who's looking to get a better night's sleep this winter. 

While MyProtein and do offer some sales throughout the year, they are both offering an impressive 80% off all essentials for a limited time. This is more of a discount than I've seen at any other time this year, so it's worth stocking up on the essentials before it's too late, in my opinion.
