Hey guys, gals, and everyone else!
I have been really bad about going to the gym lately. Between work and life, I just haven’t made working out my priority. The apartment we’re moving in to has a gym in it, so I’m excited to not have to drive 20 minutes to get my sweat on! Everyone is motivated by different things, but one thing I love…is a new outfit. A workout outfit where I look and feel powerful is where it’s at, but it has to be cheap! So I thought I’d round up some of my favorite places to shop for athletic gear for you!
Outlet stores– Now I love my Nike Pro shorts just as much as the next girl, but I don’t always love their price. At about $40 a pop they can be exspensive. One thing my boyfriend taught me is to always check out outlet stores before buying from a ‘normal’ store. I recently got a pair of Pros for $23! I have two sets of outlet stores near me, but I would just google your city to find one near you!
Forever 21– What kind of list would this be without the great Forever 21?! I will say their sizing can be a little strange, and often anything besides an XS will be out of stock in store. BUT check out these leggings and sports bra that rival anything you can see on Pinterest!
TJ Maxx- I have these leggings and they’re the comfiest things ever. I stopped by TJ Maxx on a whim and found them. Literally like clouds sitting on you while you benchpress. The great thing is that online and in store they have tons of different styles of workout clothes AND they sell regular clothes and housewares. You can get your one stop shop on!
Etsy- Now Etsy can be kind of a hunt to find affordable workout gear, but it’ll definitely be one of a kind! I like supporting small businesses, and sometimes they send handwritten thank you notes! You can also often ask sellers to whip you up something special, so you’ll really be the biggest beast in the gym! Check out these sellers Here and Here.
Last but not least…
LookHuman.com– While they’re prices are pretty average..their selection is not. Literally any meme, fandom, joke, or general comic book character you can think of-they have a shirt about it. Just look okay. LOOK.
