Bunnings new move! Store now sells exercise machines and workout gear

With gyms across the country now closed, Bunnings may be your best bet to getting in a workout.

In a surprising move from the DIY giant, Bunnings are now selling exercise equipment which they will deliver straight to your door.

This gear could definitely come in handy during isolation over the next six months.

Selling the workout goods via their online store MarketLink, Bunnings have a range of treadmills, elliptical machines, exercise bikes and rowing machines available, as well as accessories like Adidas-branded yoga mats, resistance bands and skipping ropes.

A treadmill will set you back $422.95 while an exercise bike is being sold for $299.

The Aussie retailer is the latest to change up their business amid the Coronavirus outbreak following in the footsteps of McDonald’s, Woolworths and Coles.

The news comes as Bunnings places limits on certain items per customers including generators, gas bottles, respirators or face masks, fuel cans, methylated spirits and turpentine.

“As the uncertainty continues, we want to make sure we can reassure customers that if you come to Bunnings you can get the products you are looking for,” Bunnings managing director Michael Schneider told Today last week. “And you can get the things done at home you need to.”

Limited trading hours have also been put in place with stores now opening at 6am for trades and emergency care workers only and 9am for retail customers.
