Top 6 Stores That Sell Affordable Workout Clothes

Posted by at in Fashion, Health & Fitness

6 Affordable Places to Buy Workout Clothes

1. Fabletics: No one does affordable workout attire quite like Fabletics. This fitness clothing line, owned by Kate Hudson, is a great online shop where you can find anything you need for your next workout. I find that the site is a little more confusing than most, but you can easily find exactly what you are looking for after you take their ‘Getting Started’ quiz. The quiz asks a few simple questions so that it can quickly match you to your perfect outfits AND you’ll get %50 off your first outfit plus free shipping!

2. JCPenney: Every time I go to JCP I find some great workout pieces, which makes me wonder why I shop anywhere else. They have a newer line called Xersion that has great pieces and is incredibly affordable. Last time I went, I got two full outfits for only $35 dollars. In addition to the already great prices, JCPenney always has coupons that you can use to save additional cash! They have other brands that also offer great prices. You’re sure to leave with a cute outfit and a good deal.

3. Target: No matter what I go to Target for, I can never pass their workout section without stopping for a look. They have some of the best sports bras and outdoor workout clothing here. The clothing is well made and there are lots of bright colored pieces to choose from. My only complaint…they never have my size! I usually pick things out in the store and then purchase them in the correct size off of the Target website.

4. Kohl’s: This may be my favorite place to grab some great pieces because I ALWAYS have a coupon. I had Kohl’s Cash last week worth $30, and I was able to get four new shirts for free with it. I actually had .05 left over in Kohl’s cash! It seems like they are always changing out pieces too. They have great new options every time I go in. They have absolutely EVERYTHING you need to complete an outfit in one place.

5. Old Navy: I haven’t shopped at Old Navy in years because the closest one is a half hour away, so it’s not on the top of my list. When I do go, I can’t help but purchase all their flip flops so I try to stay away from the store. I went there recently, to have a quick look, and found the BEST yoga pants that I have ever owned. Sometimes when I workout my pants like to slide around, but these don’t go anywhere and they are also high waisted. As if that isn’t fantastic enough, I was a size smaller here than any of the other stores I shop at!

6. Dick’s Sporting Goods: This is probably the least affordable of all the places listed, but you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for here. You’ll probably also find lots of pieces that you didn’t even know you needed because it’s all so cute! I went in for a shirt and came out with a lot more than that. The quality of clothing is a little more high end. However, 4 pieces cost me $100, which is too much for such a small amount if items.

 10 Ways Meditation Will Make You Happier and Healthier!

This year I am REALLY trying to focus on my health. I know we all say that, but this year (so far) I’m actually committed! I have started going to bootcamp classes every morning and doing yoga/meditating at night.

I love to do yoga and meditate at the end of the day because I feel like it really helps to center my mind and body for the next day. I always though people who meditated were crazy! How could anyone sit in silence and clear their mind when there is SO much to think about?!

Well, now I realize how beneficial it is and I want to share those reasons with you to help you live a happier and more balanced life!

Here are just some reasons why meditation is amazing for you:

1. It has incredible health benefits — i.e. increases blood flow and slows heart rate
2. Increases feelings of vitality and rejuvenation
3. Helps with weight loss and slows the aging process
4. Builds confidence and greatly improves mood and behavior
5. Allows you to cope with stress quicker and more effectively
6. Increases perceptual ability and motor performance
7. Helps to cure insomnia so it takes less time to fall asleep
8. Gives you a deeper understanding of yourself and others.
9. Brings your body, mind, and spirit in harmony
10. Decreases worry and restless thinking
