Grizzly Training Ball & Pump Was $20 | Now $10 & Free Shipping @ Supplemental Source

Grizzly Training Ball & Pump Was $20 | Now $10 & Free Shipping @ Supplemental Source

I love Supplemental Source Canada but usually their shipping costs kill any deal I might find. However, this weekend they are offering free shipping with no minimum – starting today. I found a fantastic deal on this large Grizzly Training Ball with Pump (75 cm). Originally $19.95, the training ball comes down to $9.97 with free shipping.

This is such a fantastic deal for an exercise ball with pump as this sort of fitness accessory often retails for much higher and often the pumps are sold separately. While I could not find this pump elsewhere in Canada, here is what I found it for in the USA: Read the rest of this entry »

Amazon.ca: Cap Barbell Dumbbell Set (40lbs) Was $112 | Now $48 & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 10, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Amazon.ca: Cap Barbell Dumbbell Set (40lbs) Was $112 | Now $48 & Free Shipping

Fitness is very close to the hearts of many people. If weight lifting is part of your regime, or you want it to become part of your regime, then pick up Cap Barbell (RSWB-40TPB) Dumbbell Set – 40 Pounds. Originally $111.99, the set is now marked down to just $47.99. Believe it or not, Amazon Canada still offers free shipping on this set of weights.

Do note: even if these go temporarily out of stock, you can still order them! It just means Amazon Canada will ship them when they receive their next shipment. That is one of the beauties of Amazon Canada.

I also want to clarify – for comparison purposes – that there are two versions of this set. One of them (not this one) has plastic cased weights. This set features 40 lbs worth of cast iron plates, two 1″ bars, and four plate collars. I discovered this difference when price comparing as there is a substantial price difference between the plastic and the cast iron sets.

Speaking of price comparison, this same set costs $49.99 USD at Amazon.com, which equals around $64 Canadian. This set sells on eBay as well, but you are looking at a minimum of $62 USD before shipping and import fees. Walmart had these on clearance $1 cheaper – $46.97 but you had to pay for shipping – and they sold out before you could blink. One reviewer at Walmart said:

I bought this set several days ago. Great dumbbells with good quality, sturdy box case and reasonable price

The weights, plate collars, and bars come in a convenient storage case so you do not have dumbbells sitting around your house everywhere. Trust me; stubbing your toe on a dumbbell is a certain kind of hell only likened to stepping on a LEGO.

I am trying to get into fitness instead of just be preoccupied with losing weight. I think it is a subtle shift in the way one thinks to accept your body as it is and decide to fine tune it instead of constantly obsess over every single cookie crumb. I have some free weights, but a set like this could really help in strength training.

Overall, I am quite pleased with this deal as you will receive a large volume of weights – with free shipping to your door – for under $50.

Amazon Canada: Gaiam Balance Ball Chair Was $140 | Now $67 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 26, 2015 at 11:54 AM

Amazon Canada: Gaiam Balance Ball Chair Was $140 | Now $67 & Free Shipping

If you are reading this, you could be sitting in a chair like I am while writing this. Your back could be aching like mine as well. I have been considering one of these Gaiam balance ball chairs for a year now and I think now might be the time to take the plunge. Regularly $140, they are on sale at Amazon right now for as low as $67.02, depending on which chair you choose. With your order being over $25, it will ship free too.

These chairs are said to help strengthen your back, align your spine, relieve pain and more. This sounds good to me.

There are a few colours on sale and the black this time happens to be the cheapest. I find that interesting as usually the more lesser-wanted colours like purple usually go on sale for items like these.

The black was $140 and is now $67.02. I do see that the other chairs all come with DVDs, which could be why there is a price difference. The other colours are selling with a regular price of $139.99 and are now $71.53 for the blue and $84.99 for the purple and green.

All chairs also have castors on them so you can roll around your office as you would normally in your office chair. The ball is also removable so you can do exercises with them too. Just don’t let the kids get a hold of it, as you know it will be flying across your dining room table.

Just to show you how good of a deal this is, I price compared at so many other Canadian stores that sell these chairs:

I’m going to think that this chair will sell out as while I was writing, I saw the stock go down, so don’t wait!

My Yoga Works: 14 Day Free Trial!

Posted by on May 21, 2015 at 6:00 PM

My Yoga Works: 14 Day Free Trial!

I recently discovered a pretty cool site called My Yoga Works. This is an online service which contains premium yoga classes, which you can access any time. You just view the classes from the comfort of your own home and give them a try. And it starts you off with a nice freebie – a free 14 day trial of their services!

Just signup on the link above and you will get 14 days for free. When you sign up, you will need to enter a credit card as you do so. The regular services are $15 per month – but you don’t have to let it move you on to the paying subscription. You can cancel your service any time within the first 14 days, and you won’t be charged. When I sign up for things like this, I always set a reminder alarm on my phone to alert me on day 12 or 13, to make sure I remember to cancel!

I think the 14 day trial will give you a good chance to get to grips with their website and see if you like it enough to take out a paying subscription.

There’s a great range of yoga videos on the site, and they’re organised by level so you can pick the level that suits you. The journey series is also a very interesting feature – it’s a series of videos which you can follow for focussing on select types of exercise. One of the video titles made me laugh – 5 minute yoga butt!

I am not a yoga beginner, I’ve practised various styles over the years; from pregnancy yoga to pilates. I’ve had a look at a few of the videos and they’re great quality and very good tutorials. In fact, I’ve just signed up and I will be trying out the service over the next few weeks. I am sure I will be blogging about it again, with more deals and coupon codes too.

Now, I am sure some of the more frugal people out there are thinking, why would you pay for a service like this when there are a million yoga tutorials out there on the web? Well, sometimes when it comes to tutorials like this, it can be difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff. I’ve searched for yoga tutorials on Youtube in the past, and sometimes there are issues with this. You don’t know what level the videos are aimed at, be it to a beginner or a yogi adept. There may be issues with the quality of the actual video, or even the quality of the teaching itself. With signing up at the likes of the My Yoga Works service, you know you’re getting great tutorials with which to dedicate your precious moments of exercise. My Yoga Works: 14 Day Free Trial!

Do you practise yoga? Let me know what you think of My Yoga Works too.

Save 79% TODAY ONLY! Jawbone Up Size Small Or Large Was $140 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Save 79% TODAY ONLY! Jawbone Up Size Small Or Large Was $140 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

The first generation Jawbone Up has been discontinued, and you can score a hot deal on one now. Previously selling for $139.99, you can now pick up a Jawbone Up for only $29.99. This item also qualifies for free super saver shipping.

Fitness bands have been hot recently. Now is a great time to try a model super cheap. The Jawbone Up has been one of the stronger contenders in the fitness band trend we have been seeing. This band can be worn all day and night to help track both fitness and rest patterns.  The wristband connects to a free mobile app that also allows you to track your calories, water and other nutritional information. We saw the price drop to $40 before, as Avigayil mentioned, but this is the steepest discount I have seen on this product. Be careful when you purchase as not all of the bands are at a price quite this low. Below I have listed the sizes and colours on sale for this low price.

  • Small Jawbone Up – Onyx
  • Large Jawbone Up- Onyx
  • Large Jawbone Up- Blue

Over on the website for Jawbone, I found a pdf that explains the sizing. You can use the guidelines to make sure you buy the correct size for your wrist.

Price Comparison

Best Buy Canada has the most competitive price, with these first generation Jawbones on sale for $39.95. Over at Chapters Indigo, the medium and large size Jawbones are available for $90. All small sizes are currently out of stock. Over at Staples Canada, the small and the large sizes are still available, and you will pay $99.97.

Reviews

Reviews seem mixed for this product. I am seeing some people who really love this band and others who had complaints about the software being a bit buggy. There is a new model out, the Up24, which is probably why this model is now being discontinued. Others rave about how great this tracker is and how helpful it is. Here is one of the shorter reviews on Best Buy Canada, though there are many long reviews available.

Save 79% TODAY ONLY! Jawbone Up Size Small Or Large Was $140 | Now $30 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada (EXPIRED)

I would say if you are beginning a new fitness routine, this is a great device to pick up and try without much cost. Tracking on the go is one of the hardest parts of starting any new lifestyle change. This little device can help you to make the transition a little easier.  If you are intense with your fitness goals, this may not be the device for you. I would make the choice quickly, this price is only good today.

Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD Set Was $130 | Now $66 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on May 6, 2015 at 7:41 AM

Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD Set Was $130 | Now $66 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Move and groove with the Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Ultimate Experience DVD set. This large boxed set was $129.99, but you can purchase it for only $66.04. This set also qualifies for completely free super saver shipping.

I have been curious about Zumba for a while now but never made the jump. Near my house, a Zumba fitness studio is pumping up the tunes at least five days a week. I see many tall and lean women (and a few guys also) frequenting that class. It would probably be in my best interest to join them. I think by the time I could escape my house and family regularly for the evening, all of the classes are long over.

Rather than paying for classes that I know I will end up missing half of, I could invest a little less money and pick up this fantastic looking DVD collection. This set includes seven DVDs full of workouts and music that will keep you dancing. I find I need to have a lot of variety in my workout to keep interested, and this set is packed full of options. The music and workouts vary between upbeat Latin, salsa, hip-hop and even belly dancing. Your set will also come with toning sticks, which are a nice set of light dumbbells to help you sculpt as you dance your stress away. I also like that there is an option to turn off the verbal instructions. If you get good at the steps, you can just lose yourself in the dancing.

You could pick up this Zumba set at Walmart.ca for $99.99. Canadian Tire also sells this DVD set in store for $99.99. Sears.ca carried this Zumba set for $99.99 also, but it is currently out of stock. Looks like Amazon is setting the bar for the best price on this set.

Looking at the reviews, many people are talking about this set. Over at Amazon Canada, 116 people have reviewed this set and it carries a hefty four out of five stars. After scanning the reviews, most people seem very happy with the workouts. Zumba has had a big following for a while and the reviews seem to reflect that trend. The main issue anyone notes that the packaging is a little on the flimsy side. I noticed that this particular set currently sits at a number fourteen slot in the exercise video category. In the number one exercise video slot is a similar Zumba set with less included DVDs.

Swimsuit season is coming up and I have been unmotivated to stick to my workout routine. I think this Zumba set might be just what I need to jumpstart a little fun into my workout. Grab yours set now Bargainmoosers! We have not seen much in the Zumba line go on sale in over a year according to a quick search of our site.

Today Only: 47% Off Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 20, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Today Only: 47% Off Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Today only, the Garmin Vivofit fitness band is down to just $79.99 at Amazon Canada. Originally priced as high as $149.99, it will also be shipped for absolutely free.

First of all, let me specify that this watch is available in as many as 6 different colours: black, red, slate, teal (green), purple or blue.

Second of all, summer is right around the corner and if you have been meaning to shed some weight, then this watch is for you. It holds you accountable for your laziness by displaying a red move bar after you have been inactive for one hour. Being inactive for one hour may not seem like much but if you have a sitting 9-5 job, then getting up and moving, even just a little bit, is super important for your health.

There is nothing worse than sitting all day and studies have shown that you need to move around at least every hour. Even if it’s a short walk down the hallway, it’s still better than nothing!

I’m actually very tempted to get this watch myself just because I often get caught up in sitting too long. Timers can help with this but a fitness band like the Garmin one is definitely way cooler. What is swaying me the most to potentially get it though is the image above. It made me realize that it’s not just a fitness band, but it can also double as a cool fashion accessory.

On top of motivating you to move, the Garmin Vivofit fitness band is also water resistant, has a long battery life, tracks the quality of your sleep and also counts calories. Out of 56 customers reviews on Amazon, it has received an average rating of 3.5/5 stars. This watch is also much more ecpensive everywhere else:

Now this one that is on sale doesn’t include a heart rate monitor but for the addition of this feature alone, you would be looking at nearly double the price as it’s currently going for $146.61 on Amazon! Personally, I could do without it…

Amazon Canada: Stott Pilates Eco Deluxe Mat Was $95 | Now $58 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 13, 2015 at 11:53 AM

Amazon Canada: Stott Pilates Eco Deluxe Mat Was $95 | Now $58 & Free Shipping

I was searching through Amazon’s deals today and found a good one for all the fitness enthusiasts among us. Get the Stott Pilates eco-deluxe mat for only $58.04, with a regular price of $95.20. I shopped around and found this was definitely the best price out there, by far. It will also ship to you for free.

At first you might be saying that almost $60 is a lot to pay for a pilates mat, but if you do pilates or yoga regularly, you’ll know that a good mat is so important. I have a ratty old yoga mat that I bought from Walmart probably 15 years ago and I know I need a new one. What the difference here between a regular yoga mat is that this one looks a lot thicker and easier on your body. My yoga mat is really only there for slip prevention. This mat looks like it is a bit of a cushion between you and the floor, which for someone getting a little older (in my 30s) is needed. I’ve usually just folded the mat over when I need more support for my elbows and especially my knees, but having a mat like this is a much better option.

Besides that, this mat is environmentally friendly because it is recyclable and decomposable, so it won’t sit in the landfill once you are done with it.

There are three colours available, although they are different prices. The blue/black is the one that is $58.04. The raspberry/black is $59.55 and the teal/black is $61.16. They all are a few dollars difference in price, but still over $30 off.

Just to show that Amazon hasn’t inflated their prices on this mat, I found it at Sportchek for $94.99, at Sporting Life for $94.99, and on sale at Well.ca for $84.99.

Reviewers are Amazon.com rate it highly and say:

This mat is perfect – super cushy, non-sliding, and most importantly non-stinky (no chemical smell). Ordering a second one today.

I don’t think this mat will last long, so grab it while you can!

Sportchek Canada: TRX Home Kit Was $200 | Now $150 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 25, 2015 at 1:09 PM

Sportchek Canada: TRX Home Kit Was $200 | Now $150 & Free Shipping

Want to take your workout to the next level? What about with TRX? While I’ve never tried it, I’ve heard from multiple friends that it is quite a workout with great results. You don’t need to head to the gym to do it, instead you can get the TRX home kit from Sportchek for only $149.99 with a regular price of $199.99.

If you are just starting to work out, going to the gym may feel very daunting. I remember when I first started, I was so weak and didn’t want to be embarrassed at the gym. While I now know that no one really cares what you do at the gym, that fear can be real for a lot of people. So, I worked out from home using DVDs and dumbbells until I felt comfortable enough to attend the gym. This TRX kit might do the same thing for you that it those DVDs did years ago. TRX is tough and you might not want to enter a class without knowing the basics that you can learn easily from home.

The kit includes:

  • Suspension Trainer
  • Door Anchor
  • Guide
  • Suspension Anchor
  • Door Placard
  • Wrist Band
  • Carry Bag
  • Instructional DVD

Another reason you might not be able to attend traditional TRX classes is that your gym doesn’t offer them. The gym I am at now does not. But, you could also be a new mom and have a baby or child who absolutely hates the daycare. This was me with my older children. I had to workout somewhere that they could see me all the time. I wish they had something like this when they were little that I could have done from home.

The reviews are great for this set:

This is a great piece of equipment for using at home. I live in a small apartment and the door mount works great. It gives a great workout without having to worry about really hurting yourself. It give one of the best workouts ive ever had and use it regularly.

I shopped around for this item and while I found it at less than the regular price, no other store beat the sale price. In fact, the two fitness stores that I found it at also had additional shipping fees and one didn’t have any in stock.

Here is a TRX video of the top 10 best TRX exercises just to get you in the mood:

Lug 18″ Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Posted by on February 13, 2015 at 9:45 AM

Lug 18 Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Staples.ca has a sweet little deal on the Lug 18” Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag today. This cute little bag was $106 but is now only $53. This item also includes free shipping. Here at Bargainmoose, we always check deals over and over before they go out. Our other blogger Eva, did not get the $53 sale price, although the rest of the team did. If you have troubles as well, let us know in the comments below!

Need a new bag to carry everything? Check out the Lug 18” Fitness and Overnight Bag. You can choose between a plum purple and a grass green colour at the sale price. I am digging the plum colour. I have more than one sweater in that deeper purple colour. The grass green is a nice bright spring colour, maybe I should mix it up a little more.

I think what strikes me most about this bag is how versatile it can be. They call it a fitness bag and from poking around it seems people are happy using that bag to go to the gym. This bag comes with a special pocket designed to hold your yoga mat. It also comes with a holder for your water bottle and even an extra pocket designed just for your rings. I always try to take my rings off before I head into the pool to protect them from the chlorine, so I love this feature.

This Lug bag has lots of pockets and room to store several changes of clothes. As suggested, it would be a handy little weekend bag for a getaway with all that extra room. The bag is also a big enough size that it can be used as a diaper bag. It has lots of pockets, a big luggage handle strap and room for your water bottle. Sounds like the perfect diaper bag to me. Since the bag is particularly roomy, it might be a nice choice if you have supplies for multiple kids to tote.

Here is what I found when I checked out prices on this bag around the web.

You can see from the prices at the competitors that this bag is a steal today at Staples.ca. Save yourself a few bucks and grab this multi-use Lug bag now.

I could not find anyone on a well-known website that had reviewed this bag in Canada, so I popped over to Amazon in the US. Many people seem to be talking about this bag over the border. It has 25 reviews and an average rating of four and a half stars out of five. Here is one happy reviewer explaining what they like about this Lug bag.

Lug 18 Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Many of the items in the Staples Deals Centre are saying you have six or four days left to purchase the item. This Lug bag does not have that caveat. I suspect once the stock runs out of these bags, they are gone. If you like the bag, I would get it now while the deal is still on. Free shipping also comes with this deal.

Future Shop: Gaiam Premium Hibiscus Yoga Kit Was $45 | Now $22.99 & FS on $25 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 20, 2015 at 1:49 PM

Future Shop: Gaiam Premium Hibiscus Yoga Kit Was $45 | Now $22.99 & FS on $25 (EXPIRED)

Future Shop finally fixed their deal of the day so the discount is actually showing. Today only, purchase the Gaiam Premium Hibiscus Yoga Kit on sale from $44.99 down to $22.99.

I price compared this yoga mat kit with other retailers to make sure it was the best price. Here is what the competitors are charging for the exact same kit.

  • $39.99 @ Gaiam Canada
  • $44.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $44.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $38.24 @ London Drugs Canada

Now, it is important to note that this is an entire kit, not just the mat itself. I found the mat as a stand-alone product for as low as $28, but that is not a fair comparison to this kit. The kit includes the three workout DVDs, a yoga mat sling with adjustable closure strap, and the premium yoga mat.

The three full-length Yoga DVDs feature Rodney Yee for a total of 245 minutes. These are the three DVDs you will receive:

  • Ultimate Power Yoga (95 minutes)
  • A.M. Yoga for Your Week (120 minutes)
  • Abs Yoga for Beginners (30 minutes)

Your yoga mat is green with little white hibiscus flowers upon it. It is considered premium as the mat is thicker (5 mm) than most yoga mats are. This saves your knees and makes it more comfortable for your daily workout. The mat also has a textured, cushioned surface that helps you keep your grip and get into the perfect positions. This Gaiam yoga mat is latex free and free of the six most harmful phthalates. As someone who has a latex sensitivity, I appreciate latex free products.

I think this kit is a great way to start the New Year. I am sure many of us have weight loss goals this year, and yoga is beneficial for weight loss, flexibility, mental health, and more. This kit will give you everything you need to begin a frequent yoga workout in your own home.

In some areas, you may be able to reserve in store to avoid shipping costs. Shipping is free on orders of $25 or more so you may want to throw in something like this Gaiam: Fit Body Yoga Ft. Gwen Lawrerence for just $4.99 to bring your cart above $25.

50% Off Lululemon Swift Headband – Now $7 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 13, 2015 at 5:33 PM

50% Off Lululemon Swift Headband   Now $7 & Free Shipping

The Swift Headband just landed in the ‘We Made Too Much’ section at Lululemon. Originally $14, pick up the Swift Headband in a multitude of colours for just $7 with free shipping.

This item must have just hit the sale section at Lululemon as all band colours are still in stock. Choose from:

  • space dye heathered split pea (yellow)
  • space dye heathered pretty purple
  • space dye heathered alberta lake
  • heathered ultra violet/black
  • heathered pigment blue

The last picture of each picture series gives you a really good close up shot of the band so you can truly see what each colour looks like. I think my favourite is the Alberta lake colour followed by the split pea. I could always purchase both and even combine them.

According to Lululemon, the headbands are made of stretch Silverescent fabric to keep the fabric smelling fresh even after it has absorbed your sweat from countless runs. The moisture-wicking fabric will pull sweat away from your head and keep it from running down your face (and into your eyes).

Now, these headbands have a silicone design on the inside to keep the headband in place. However, I would say half of the reviews complain about the headband slipping off or not staying where it is put. Others do say that it stays in place, so it appears you need just the right size of head for this to work out. Here are two opposing reviews:

This headband is very cute, stylish, and comes in a great selection of colors, however, it does not stay on your head. I constantly have to take it off and put it on again every time i use it. I guess this would be okay for yoga, but for running and high impact activities, it does not work well.

and…

I purchased this headband to wear on my long runs. This headband stays put the entire time and when I take it off it is soaked with all the sweat it has captured and prevented from rolling down my face during my run.. Highly recommend this headband!

This constant slippage problem might just be why the headband has landed in the sale section. As per usual, all items in the sale section are final sale. As you would be buying this with full knowledge of the slippage issue, I doubt they would refund your money if it slips off your head.

MEC: 75% Off Free Spirit Sport Top – Now $9

Posted by on January 12, 2015 at 12:42 PM

MEC: 75% Off Free Spirit Sport Top   Now $9

Mountain Equipment Co-op has an amazing clearance section with up to 75% off fitness and athletic clothing, accessories, gear, and more. I spotted this women’s MEC Free Spirit Sport Top on sale from $36 down to just $9.

This athletic top features a body fit, which is tight, with no room to spare. The Free Spirit top is made of a soft jersey knit polyester and LYCRA blend with a double layer in the chest area for modesty and additional support. There is a light support built-in shelf bra with removable pads. The shirt features my favourite back style: the crossover racer-back.

You can choose from pink punch (available in sizes large and extra-large) or dusty aqua (available in sizes medium, large, and extra-large).

Now, out of three reviews, a couple mention that their usual size top was a bit larger than they would have liked. Therefore, if you enjoy a snug fit as the body fit is supposed to give, you may want to size down. Here is one such review:

I bought this top in clearance and have to say that I am very happy with my purchase. I had to go a size down as it does fit to body and was a bit large in my regular size. It is light weight and worked well on my bike ride and in my yoga session.

If this shirt is not available in your size, I have a few other recommendations from the sale. The MEC Hera Top is an excellent alternative and comes in all sizes except extra-small. Originally $36, the top is now on sale for $10. This top is available in pink punch and has a racer back style (teardrop shaped) and a built in bra that is best for A or B cups.

I also recommend the MEC Vitality Short‑Sleeved Tee for only a few dollars more. Originally $42, the shirt is on sale for $15. There are many sizes available and two different colours as well.

No shirt is complete without a bottom so check out the MEC Terra Nova Skirt that was $46 and is now only $15. There are many sizes still available in both colour options.

The clearance section at MEC is loaded with clearance deals on athletic wear right now so browse around for other great deals. Receive free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Order under $50 cost $6.50 to ship.
