Brands with Budget Friendly Workout Gear

Call us crazy, but we love to feel + look confident while working out at the gym. Nowadays, athletic wear has become very popular + trendy, with most girls including workout clothes in their everyday wardrobe [not just to the gym!].

Although we love to keep up with most of the trends going on in society, it is often difficult to because of the price tag that’s attached. Known brands such as lululemon, Alo + Athleta sell trendy performance wear that we see + love, but are on the *pricier* side. Here are some of our favorite, affordable pieces — including sports bras, leggings, tanks, shirts + more! : )


Cotton On is great for more than just their inexpensive fast-fashion, casual wear. These workout leggings are the perfect length, especially if you’re short ; ). At just the right compression + available in all the basic, staple colors you NEED in your closet, it’s actually unbelievable that these leggings are so inexpensive! Cotton On’s sports bras are also a steal. Ranging from low impact for yoga + pilates to high impact for cardio, these sports bras are super cute + comfortable.


Does anyone feel like Amazon is slowly taking over the world? With Alexa’s at every corner of the room, Amazon dash buttons on hand, + Amazon Fashion emerging, it was only right to include these leggings featured on Amazon that are extremely affordable, comfortable, + stylish. The Yogalicious Lightweight Leggings are the softest pair of bottoms that come in almost every color you can think of. Similarly, the 90 Degree by Reflex Flex Leggings are a great, affordable legging option that performs amazingly at the gym! At such an affordable price +  extremely fast shipping thanks to Amazon Prime, these are a MUST for every girl’s wardrobe.


Even though most of us have most likely shopped at Forever 21 + have gone through their chaotic stores, we often overlook the activewear in favor of a cute going-out shirt or a pair of comfy lounge shorts. Forever 21’s gym tops, especially their cropped hoodies + long-sleeves ++ tank tops, will have people asking where you got such trendy gym wear. Not only will you look + feel confident, but F21’s prices will have you feeling completely stress-free!


Presumably unknown to most of us, Aliexpress is an online retail website that offers a variety of products from different, small businesses. ColorValue, a store featured on Aliexpress, offers high-waisted gym leggings that we are obsessed with! With the perfect rise + compression + +length ++ color, these leggings are everything that we dream of in gym bottoms! At such a great price, ColorValue leggings are a bargain dupe that’s very comparable to high-end priced leggings such as Lululemon! Although an order of these leggings may come with a bit of a wait, customers promise they are completely worth it : )


If you’re ever looking for basic performance tank tops or active shirts with cute, motivational quotes on them — Old Navy is the place to go! Old Navy features hot deals varying from tank tops to short sleeve tops. These tops are perfect for those gym days where you just want to throw something on, yet feel 100% in! This Motivation tank top will instill that push in your workout, or if you prefer sleeves, the You Got This top can also inspire a little confidence when you look at yourself killing it in the mirror!
