Getting motivated to go to the gym isn’t an easy thing if you are just starting out on your fitness journey. I have found that one of the easiest ways to motivate myself to go work out is to make fitness fashion a part of my wardrobe. When we look good we feel good, right?! It’s important to make sure that you feel just as pretty and confident in your workout attire as you do in your day to day clothes. Activewear can be pricey, especially designer activewear! Sometimes the price tag of workout gear can be a huge turn off when you are making the decision to start going to the gym on a regular basis. I know that we would all love to be decked out in Lululemon, Under Armor, Nike but the idea of paying $100 for a pair of yoga pants that you plan on being too small for in a few months just doesn’t seem realistic to me. Luckily, there are a few places where you can score cute gym clothes without breaking the bank! Check out my Top 5 places to get affordable work out gear that will encourage you to get in the gym and feel the burn!
· Walmart- Walmart has really stepped their fitness fashion game up lately! The Danskin line they carry has tons of cute tops, sports bras, and leggings in those beautiful colors and prints that we all want! I have seen very pretty tops for as low as 7.99!
· Old Navy-Old Navy is known for inexpensive basics and their activewear section does not disappoint. We all love those cute graphic tees with motivational workout saying on them and colorful compression pants with different prints. You can usually catch a decent amount of active gear in their infamous clearance section too!
· Forever 21- If you love super trendy stuff, but you don’t want to invest in something that you might not like next season; Forever 21 is the place to go. They carry a ton of cute cutout tops, mesh leggings, and the graphic tees are adorable for the price! Their activewear ranges from about $10-25.
· Plato’s Closet- If you are dying for some Nike gear, check out your local Plato’s closet. They are known for only accepting items that are current and on trend. I have shopped for compression pants and tanks in my local Plato’s closet and scored a good amount of designer gear for about 60% less than retail prices!
· Savers/Goodwill- Don’t be afraid to check out your local thrift store for your workout clothes. I realize the thought of wearing something that someone else was sweating in may seem a bit gross, but that’s why we have hot water and detergent! Some of my best high end workout gear was pre-loved. If you are looking for designer labels, be sure to check out the thrift stores near affluent parts of town. You’d be surprised what people donate! I have scored Under Armor for $4.
