One way to get motivated to hit your fitness goals is to switch up your usual regimen with new gear, whether a set of weights, exercise apparel or a fun activity that gets you and your crew away from screens or into the great outdoors. As someone who made a big investment in fitness after having a baby in my 40s, and who goes to outdoor gear stores for fun, I know first-hand that the right fitness equipment can spur you toward better health—and it's a smart investment during Amazon‘s big sale. We even found a sale product for your pet.

If you haven't picked up pickleball yet, now might be the perfect time. This on-sale set comes with four paddles, two indoor and two outdoor balls, grip tape in four colors and handy carrying bags for the rackets and balls. Choose from a grid pattern or one that displays a map of the New York City subway. Now all you need is a court and a net and you’re ready to play.

If a stronger core is your goal for better balance—or if working from home is leaving you with back pain—a half-ball trainer can be a great enhancer for exercises like push-ups, squats, lunges, planks and climbers. This one inflates with a simple pump (included) and has anchors to attach resistance bands (two included—though you can also attach other ones you may own to vary the resistance). Its six anti-slip rubber feet, anti-skid texture and 600-pound weight limit mean you can confidently stand, jump, kneel or lie on it, whether flat- or ball-side up. Amazon shows it at 32% off, and it's more than $20 less than its price last week.

$399 Save $70

This handheld electric massage gun from Therabody is designed for muscle relaxation and pain relief. The compact device comes with five attachments and has five speeds, allowing you to deliver percussive therapy wherever you need it. For an even more personalized massage experience, you can connect the Theragun to an app via Bluetooth for custom routines and more controls.

Chances are, you’re familiar with the Peloton exercise bike, and thanks to Amazon's two-day sale, it's 15% off. The original model of the high-tech stationary bike along with its online component of virtual classes (which costs $44 per month) offers a fitness studio-level workout experience at home. With a 4-foot by 2-foot footprint, it takes up minimal space, making it an easy fit in most homes and apartments. The bike also comes with an adjustable seat and handlebar, as well as a 22-inch screen, which you can tilt to find a comfortable view for your height. You’ll save $220 on the Peloton bike now compared with its price last week on Amazon; make sure to check whether expert assembly is available in your area at checkout.

You deserve better than a mat that slips as you’re on the verge of a perfect warrior pose. A firm grip is the big advantage of this yoga mat that you might have seen before in your favorite boutique studio. Right now, it's down 20% to $52 in Amazon's sale. Consumer commenters enthusiastically confirm it grips the floor well and its 71-inch length requires less adjusting as you move through poses. It's also light—3.7 pounds and 5 millimeters thick to provide comfortable cushioning and joint protection during your entire practice. Looking for something different? See our best-ranked yoga mats.

If you want a 2-inch-thick mat that offers a lot of space to move around, this one from We Sell Mats at 4-by-10 feet is 15% off, down to $200, in Amazon's big sale. In the past year, it has dipped as low as $153, but if you need something for indoor workouts or for kids to dance or tumble out their energy indoors during inclement weather, this is a decent price and it comes in a range of fun colors. We also like that it folds to one-fourth of its size for underbed storage and its vinyl surface wipes clean. Amazon also has marked down the 4- by 8-foot version to $146.

NordicTrack is a trusted name in exercise equipment, and I can attest to the quality, ease and space-saving cleverness of its Select-a-Weight pair that I purchased through Amazon to share with my husband after BuySide's ranking of best adjustable dumbbells. This iSelect model, marked down 15% to $365 right now, is for people who have an Alexa voice device and want to sync their weightlifting to it. The dumbbells adjust from 5 to 50 pounds in 5-pound increments, either with voice commands or a manual knob. The set comes with a 30-day iFit Family Membership for streaming workouts, which auto-renews unless you cancel. This is an excellent sale price: The set is often $500 and we’ve seen it drop below this Amazon price only once before. Amazon has another adjustable-weight dumbbell from Altler on sale for $118, down 16%, but note that the price is for a single dumbbell, so if you want a set, you’ll need to put two in your basket.

This treadmill from NordicTrack features zero to 10% incline and zero to 10mph controls, allowing for a variety of workouts whether you’re an avid runner or power walker. Plus, it's foldable for easy storage, making it a great option for small spaces. Right now, your purchase also includes a 30-day iFit membership, which gives you access to stream live and on-demand workouts.

$137 at Amazon

Fun for pretty much everyone, this cornhole set is all wood, regulation size and comes with eight bean bags, a carrying case so you can take it to a park or a friend's backyard. It comes in a patriotic red, white and blue style. California- and Colorado-themed styles are also on sale.
