Yup, treadmills, rowers, bikes and ellipticals from Sunny Health & Fitness that were already reduced are suddenly seeing even more discounts!

Save $54: Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 Elliptical Machine

With eight levels of magnetic resistance and a screen that tracks distance, calories, and pulse, the Fitness SF-E905 Elliptical lets you build strength at your own pace. This lean machine comes partially assembled. It's slim enough to slip into a closet between workouts. And it's down to just $125, from $179. 

Wrote one of nearly 7,000 five-star reviewers: "I was very pleased with this elliptical! I stopped using mine years ago because it was so noisy. While there were quieter ones available they were either too bulky, out of my budget, not full range motion, or all three, lol. However [with] this...I got everything I was looking for. I must say that the assembly was my first workout with this machine lol you definitely need 2 people. All in all I LOVE it and used it right away!"

Save 44 percent: Sunny Health & Fitness Magnetic Rowing Machine

Build cardiovascular strength while toning your core. This rower, on sale for $174 off, offers multiple levels of resistance and monitors distance, time, calories burned and strokes per minute. 

"I can't imagine that you'll do better for a basic rowing machine at this price," wrote one of many five-star fans. "Assembly was average — some things went together quickly and others took some trial and error. My big mistake was putting the seat on backwards at first — I had to disassemble a section of the body to get it off and turned around. It's not light, but surprisingly easy to move because of the small wheels on one end. It's very quiet and the pulling action very smooth.... The digital readouts give you enough basic information to regulate your workout by time or number of strokes. Very nice machine, and again, excellent for the money."

If you're one of the people who tried too late to grab an exercise bike during the early days of the pandemic, only to find the item sold out everywhere, you're in luck. This beauty is on sale at a fraction of the cost of many competitors, down to just $108. Some of the 8,000+ five-star reviewers say they use it with the Peloton app to enjoy the top-shelf benefits without the four-figure investment. 

This reviewer reports that the Sunny bike can hold its own, even under intense use: "I've been using this spin bike for the last 6.5 months, about 4-6 times per week on average, and it is still working very well! I've had no problems with this bike. It was pretty easy to assemble by myself, and I've had no problems with noise or any kind of declines in performance. Like many others, I use this with the Peloton app. I never ended up getting any kind of cadence monitor, I just go with the flow of the class. Basically, this is a great bike as-is, and it does what it needs to do! Enjoy your rides!"

"So easy to put together," says one happy reviewer, "the thing is almost completely pre-assembled.... It runs great, feels great, works great. I’m 5’10” and have enough width and length to run and walk. It feels plenty roomy. Read the manual all the way through and follow the directions...."
