Workout Clothes for Women on Sale
The following is a guest post from our friends at The Budget Fashionista.
It’s always this time of year when New Year’s resolutions begin to wane. Sure, you’ve been reading your one book every two weeks. Yes, you’ve been flossing every day. Taking your vitamins. Calling your parents. But in truth, we all know what the most common and hardest to stick to promise is—and that’s exercise. Sure, on December 31st you pledged to be more fit this year. Workout five times a week. Mix it up. Sign up for a race. And then it’s March, and the invigorating novelty of being super healthy just isn’t as motivating as it was in January. You’re starting to feel bored, a little “oh this again.” So, what’s a girl to do? In this time of need, there is only one thing that will revive the thrill: clothes. Yep, go shopping. And it doesn’t have to break your budget—here are five wallet-friendly workout outfits that won’t lean your wallet, but will definitely make you feel as hot as you’ve been working for.
1. Lululemon: I’m sure you are thinking “there is no cheap item in that store”—but, have you ever shopped the “we made too much” section? Here, you will find what I like to call “sale” items—for about 30 percent off. Luckily, workout clothes never go out of style since they always have a function, so stock up. This hot running jacket with long sleeves and finger holes, pictured on the left, is a favorite of mine—Forme Jacket *Brushed (only $89)
2. Gap: I love GapFit, Gap’s line of workout gear. Ranging from pants to shirts, bras and socks, you can basically outfit yourself for less (especially if you buy those seasonal sale items!). I love the fitness pants that come in a variety of lengths and fit. These Distance Capris are only $49.95 and can be worn for virtually anything.
3. Target: Of course Target has it’s own collection by Champion. I love the bras that I get at Target, and the option to buy literally everything I’d ever need (from hair ties to running socks) makes a trip to Target a one-stop-shop that promises affordable finds. My favorite bra is this Racer Back bra for only $12.99 that comes in the entire rainbow of colors.
4. Forever21: I fell in love with F21′s athletic line when I realized I could get pants, bras and shirts for an average of $10 to $20 a pop. Check out these cute Ruched Skinny Workout Pants for only $10.80!

Don't worry about it. I like gyms like the YMCA or JCC or colleges like USF-Koret, since they are just less "cruisey" than the for-profit places, I think. Also cleaner and they don't hard-sell you all the time. I started at 200 lbs and way out of shape, and I felt comfortable at my Y -- just think how that is for a woman at 200 lbs to work out in public! They were great there, all kinds of people, young, old, fat, fit. I lost 70 lbs, btw. : ) So just find a place that is convenient and that you feel ok about; nobody will pay attention to your belly until you lose it -- then you'll get compliments
