The right workout equipment can help motivate you to achieve your fitness goals. If you're someone who prefers the comfort and privacy of exercising at home, devices that are easy to store when you're not using them can be especially important. Adding to that, while some fitness products are budget-friendly, a lot of at-home machines—like treadmills, stationary bikes, and more—are expensive. Fortunately, you can find some great deals on exercise gear and gadgets this time of year. One of the best we've seen so far is on the Goplus 2-in-1 treadmill, which you can get on Amazon for today only for a very impressive discount.

Originally $500, this compact machine is on sale starting at $293, so you'll save just over $200. While still a big expense, this price drop makes the Goplus one of the most economical investments you can find online if you're shopping for treadmills, as other top-ranked picks retail for upwards of $500 and higher.

Aside from the price, there are a lot of reasons to consider giving the Goplus a try. For one thing, it's foldable, meaning you can tuck the handrail down and store this device under a couch, bed, or desk with ease. For those who live in smaller apartments or share space with roommates, a machine like this could be ideal, just based on how much space it saves compared to non-foldable models.

Along with this nifty feature, the Goplus is designed with versatility in mind. Of the more than 5400 Amazon reviewers who have given it a run, many have lauded this 4.1-star rated device for its under-desk functionality, meaning users can operate it while standing comfortably at their workstations. "This treadmill works great under my desk," wrote one shopper. "... I teach online classes from my desk and I walk at 1.7 mph while teaching." In this way, the Goplus is comparable to the much-loved Cubii JR under-desk elliptical machine ($250), except the latter is for bike-pedal exercises and doesn't transform into a full-fledged piece of gear.

Equipped with a 2.25-horsepower (HP) motor, a five-layer, nonslip and shock-absorbing running belt, and remote control and safety key in case of emergencies, the Goplus is a high-performance machine you can use for running or walking. You can also connect your smartphone to the device via Bluetooth and rock out to your favorite tunes as you work up a sweat. One thing you won't be sweating over, however, is how good this discount is, so grab it now while the deal price is still valid.
