Motivating yourself to work out is hard enough. You def don’t need the added stress of wondering what the hell you’re going to wear to your workout. And, you shouldn’t have to succumb to wearing your sorority rush tank when you’ve clearly been out of college for five years now. Of course, I’m totally aware that those $30 SoulCycle classes are already breaking your bank enough. So really, your workout clothes shouldn’t be costing what’s left of your paycheck. (You know, the part that’s supposed to be going to rent.) At the end of the day, none of us need any more excuses to not work out, so let’s make your workout outfit an easy no-brainer. And, if you’re going to work out, you want to ensure you look as good as possible doing so, right??? Right. So you need some affordable workout clothes that aren’t just an oversize T-shirt. Here are four places to shop for affordable workout clothes that are still super cute.
1. FP Movement
Free People’s Movement collection definitely isn’t your cheapest option, but it’s still almost half the price of Lululemon. Plus, if you ask me, it’s also a hell of a lot comfier. FP Movement leggings are the COMFIEST leggings ever and, if you don’t believe me, try them. At roughly $78 a pair, they’re totally worth the investment.
Free People Tighten Up Tank ($20)
Free People Freestyle Rise Legging Solid ($78)
Free People Fuji Short Solid ($58)
2. TJ Maxx
You can get tons of name-brand athletic pieces at TJ Maxx for a fraction of the price that they would normally cost. I know I sound like one of those TJ Maxx fashionista commercials right now, but hear me out. I’m a #maxxinista to my core and I’m proud to admit it. Like, Under Armour leggings for $20?! And they have ton more brands just like it, such as, Puma, Nike, and Adidas.
Betsey Johnson Performance Slit And Distressed Pullover Top ($19.99)

You probably know Missguided as your go-to site for trendy going out clothes, but what you probably didn’t know is that they also have an incredible selection of affordable workout clothes. The brand’s active collection has cool pieces that are vvv in sync with the whole athleisure trend right now. So even if you don’t end up making it to the gym, you’ll still look good in your outfit. Not to mention, you can get a full matching workout outfit for half the price of a pair of Lululemon leggings. Warning, though, the sizes do go fast, so if there’s something you

We all want to be the betch that works out at 6am, seven days a week. However, not all of us can be. Most of us are lucky if we make it to the gym three or four times a week. So don’t make it any harder on yourself to get that workout in. Stock your closet with trendy workout pieces that you’ll feel good in and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Hey, you can even use that money you’ll save for more overpriced workout classes! Woohoo!
