Let’s be honest, if we can find an excuse to skip out on the gym, we’ll take it. Netflix + couch is usually the more tempting option for many of us. Especially as it gets colder out there…
Well, not owning great workout wear should no longer be a potential excuse. Let’s try and trick our brains into feeling a little more excited about hitting the gym with a slightly cooler outfit. Hey, whatever works right?
Below is a list of the most affordable (yet stylish) brands offering activewear ranges:
Whether you’re looking to lounge or work out in your activewear (I’m not judging!) I’d suggest checking out H&M’s offering. You’ll find some great basics ranging from just $6 upwards. And some of them are surprisingly stylish.
Motivate yourself to get active with Old Navy’s activewear range. Most of their pieces range from $5 to $33. I love the compression leggings in particular. They come in a range of prints and styles.
If you’re after something a little more girly, Victoria’s Secret has a great athletic range. There are lots of bright colors to help you stand out as you work up a sweat on the treadmill. And being a lingerie brand, you just know they’d make a great sports bra.
Amazon and eBay
I’ve found Amazon (yes, Amazon) can actually be a great source for some incredible bargains in workout wear. Or, well, bargains for anything. Find yourself some stylish sweats from online sellers, with prices ranging from as little as $1. eBay also has some great cheap pieces. That is, if you can bear to wade through the sheer amount of choice on offer.
While we’re on the subject of online sources for activewear, I can’t leave out Kate Hudson’s company Fabletics from this list. If you’re a real gym bunny and are keen on updating your gym outfits on a regular basis, check out the VIP membership. For a $49.95 monthly subscription, you can get a whole new outfit each month,
Gap is never a let-down when it comes to affordable basics and comfort. They have a wide range of ‘athleisure’ at great prices, though I’m not promising it’s the most stylish. Prices range from between $20-$60.
Last, but not least, my favorite spot for picking up some amazing bargains for the gym has got to be T.J. Maxx. Dig deep into their racks to find some great sportswear brands at ridiculously low discounted prices.
