5 Places to Shop for Affordable Activewear
1. Forever 21
When you think about where to buy activewear, Forever 21 is probably not the first store that comes to mind. Surprisingly, this trendy retailer has some awesome, quality workout apparel this season. Run circles around your friends in this eat dust muscle tank and sunburst printed athletic leggings for less than $35 total. Use the promo code GETFIT to get free shipping on all online activewear purchases made thru January 31st.
Target is already a go-to place for amazingly affordable and stylish home decor, why not make it your go-to store for workout wear as well? Home to the C9 by Champion brand, you can choose from a variety of shorts, pants, tops, sports bras, and even athletic shoes all typically priced between $10 and $35. This figure flattering fit and flare tank is a mere $22.99 and is currently on sale, as are these functional woven running shorts with built-in compression shorts that are between $11.38-$18.99 depending on your color choice.
Fabletics is celebrity Kate Hudson’s recent venture into the athletic apparel world. Complete outfits start at just $49.95 and come in a variety of colors and on-trend silhouettes. Become a VIP member and you get your first full workout outfit for only $25, plus exclusive discounts and offers each month. I’ve got my eye on this outfit comprised of the switch back tee and sydney capri.
4. Old Navy
With sizes ranging from XS to 4X, Old Navy active wear caters to women of all shapes. You can typically receive 25-40% off on top of their already reasonable prices. This clever graphic workout tank is available in women’s and women’s plus and is only $10! To get through the next few chilly months, get one of these cute half-zip pullovers, which are on sale for $19 and available in eight different colors. For women with larger busts, it can be difficult to find a supportive sports bra that doesn’t cost less than $50-75. However, I’m a big fan of the Old Navy active sports bra and its affordable price tag at only $17.
5. Nordstrom Rack
Looking for name brand activewear without the name brand prices? Nordstrom Rack carries designer and name brand workout apparel at half the price you’ll pay at a regular department store. You can purchase pieces in-store or online. This classic Adidas colorblock tee is 63% off and costs only $14.97. If you’re in the market for new athletic shoes, you can’t beat Nordstrom Rack’s selection or prices.
