As of late, I’ve been something of a gym rat. After packing on some extra pounds following our wedding last year, it got to a point where my clothes were starting to get reeeeaallly tight and the number on the scale was higher than it had ever been before. So, like pretty much every red-blooded American, I made a New Year’s resolution to get back into shape.
Come January 1, I started getting my butt to the gym no less than 4 days a week. With that much time at the gym, you start to take notice of things …. like the way fellow gym-goers dress. And at my gym, it seems as if there’s a requirement that women must wear Lululemon. Don’t get me wrong … I love Lululemon. They make some seriously cute workout gear that I absolutely adore. But, I don’t really love shelling out $150 for a pair of workout leggings and a top. I mean, if you’re hitting the gym 4 or 5 times a week, that’s like $600 in workout outfits!
No, I’m more of a “quantity” kind of girl. And, not trying to brag, but I’ve amassed what I think is a really cute wardrobe of workout gear that was all seriously affordable. With my penchant for shopping, I’m constantly looking for new places to find great deals on clothes I can wear to work up a sweat. Here’s a list of some of my favorite sources – along with a few new ones I have yet to try … but you better believe I will be soon! Oh, and for fun, I picked out one super cute item from each of the retailers below. Not a single item is over $25—heck, you could buy all of them for less than $100—and they are all beyond adorable!
