No matter how shallow it sounds, it is always easier to be excited for a workout when you've got a cute new gym outfit to show off. I don't think fashionable fitness gear should cost more than your gym membership and score some of my favorite leggings and sports bras from surprising sources.
Famous for carrying low-priced, cutting edge clothing, the chain store also has its own activewear collection with the latest cuts and colors starting at less than $8 for sports bras.
Better known for being sexy than sporty, the lingerie line expanded to include clothes to help you get the body of an Angel. The styles are supermodel approved and included in the semi-annual sales.
Champion is having a huge fashion moment but this discount retailer has carried the popular line for as long as I remember in addition to collaborations with brands like JoyLab.
I discovered this shop when I moved to Brooklyn and clean up each time there is a sale. Their athleisure styles keep me comfortable outside the gym, too, with cropped sweatshirts and trendy joggers.
