Do you have a favorite pair of go-to yoga pants that are an essential part of every workout attire, fitting you perfectly with the ideal amount of flexibility and comfort? Well, I have good news for you! Here is a list of secrets for finding a whole collection of your next new favorite yoga pants without breaking the bank. Learn where to shop, what to watch for and money-saving apps to help you locate the most fashionable workout attire at the cheapest rate.
Stores are joining in on the workout craze and stocking their shelves with activewear. Unfortunately, they are doing so at a steep price. Below are five must-shop-at stores that will meet all of your fitness fashion needs at the lowest cost.
One of my favorite places to go for workout fashion is Old Navy. Known for its cheap deals on pixie jeans and colorful blouses, Old Navy also has an excellent selection of workout gear, featuring go-dry fabric, compression and interior pockets. With hot deals under $24, you’ll be on your way to building a whole new wardrobe in no time! Signing up for their e-mail list will also keep you updated on the next big sale or exclusive (members-only) coupons.
Love to wear leggings but hate their thin layers? Try out the slim yoga pants offered at Old Navy. They are sure to make you feel comfortable with every step.
As my go-to store for all my needs, why not shop at Target for my workout attire? Target offers a wide selection of activewear under $50, including yoga pants, compression shorts and shirts, tennis attire and swimwear. With a variety of colors and sizes, finding the item that best fits all of your workout needs is simple!
Shopping at Target on the right day will also save you a couple extra dollars to put towards a new outfit. The best time to shop for women’s clothing is on Tuesdays while men’s perfect day is on Wednesdays. No need to pay full price when you can take advantage of the lowest deals by going on these designated days.
Exclusive to Target is the buy more, save more online feature. Shop online for activewear, and the more you buy, the more you can save.
Stay 21 forever and save money on workout gear at this retail giant! As reliable as this store is on great deals and a variety of options for clothes, I don’t expect anything less from their workout clothes. With diverse collections and styles, all activewear at Forever 21 is under $30. My favorite exercise gear from this store is their loose fitting tank tops, which are great for providing me room to move while kickboxing.
If you have a military or student discount, enjoy 10% off your purchase when you show the appropriate I.D.
Similar to Forever 21, H&M provides a vast variety of workout wear for any activity that interest you. With gear under $50, you can stock up on all your favorite outfits. Plus, with their everyday deals, you’ll never miss an opportunity to save major bucks!
I purchase most of my shorts, socks and headbands from this store and have been pleased with their durability during even my toughest workout.
Need new Under Armour gear or a pair of Nike’s? Look no further than Academy! With the lowest prices possible for brand-name merchandise, you can save yourself hundreds of dollars by shopping here.
My last purchase at Academy was a pair of Nike Women’s FS Lite Run Running Shoes –feels like I’m running on a cloud— for $45.00. The same shoes at other sports retailers would have cost me upwards of $80.00. I think I made the right choice!
Also, look for money-saving coupons in your email when you sign up to be a part of their mailing list.
Shopping doesn’t always have to be in store, and with exclusive online activewear retailers, finding the perfect outfit is just a click away.
Have you seen the commercials on T.V. for Kate Hudson’s new line of workout gear, Fabletics? With all online services, Fabletics makes shopping for activewear easy! Get started by choosing your favorite outfits and what activities interest you. A stylist will use this information to find the perfect outfit for your energy level and preference. Once becoming a member of Fabletics, you will start receiving workout outfits for just $49.95 every month until your closet is full.
As a child site of the Gap franchise, Athleta provides affordable and fashionable activewear online. From shorts to swimwear, this site has everything you might need for your next adventure in easy to sort through categories. Compared to other online stores that charge upwards of $100 for an outfit, Athleta cuts the price in half. Additionally, this site offers a lenient return policy, letting you return any item, for any reason, at any time even if you wore the clothes! What other site allows you to do that?
So far, my favorite outfit from the site is a multi-color, reversible bathing suit. It works great for splashing around in the pool or laying out on the beach.
