Cute Workout Clothes on a Budget

Cute Workout Clothes1

Looking cute while working out doesn’t have to be expensive!!

Sure, sometimes I browse websites like Lululemon and Lorna Jane and just drool over the freaking cuteness that they produce. But I just can’t afford to pay $50+ for a pair of leggings that I’m just going to sweat in – and then have baby yogurt finger prints all over.

Here are my favorite places to fitness apparel on a budget!

  • Second-hand Stores. Yes you read that right. Some of my all time favorite workout attire has come from a thrift or consignment store. Don’t worry, I’m super picky and I only buy things in amazing condition (no sweat stains, tears, rips, stretched out material). I’ve picked up some Under Armour tops, Nike DriFit tops, Adidas bottoms and so many other goodies for a FRACTION of the price. I talk about some of my workout clothes finds here.


  • Cotton On.  Cotton On is one of my favorite websites. They have the cutest stuff and when it goes on sale, it REALLY goes on sale. I’m hooked on muscle tees right now. They are cute, easy, light weight and I get them for super cheap on (Like, $5 a top, cheap!) They have more than just muscle tanks. They actually have an entire line of active wear at amaaaazing prices!

  • Target. Maybe it’s because it’s the only major store we have in our small town, but I love me some Target. I could go there every day and never get bored. And the clearance section?? Oh lawdy. I got these amazing capris in the Active clearance section the other day for 50% off!! Originally $24.99 and I got them for $12! Right now my target has adorable workout tanks on clearance too, so they can move in the new stuff for winter. (PS – Winter?? Cool weather?? What’s that??). I got this fun “Cardio Queen” muscle tank in the clearance section too!





  • Old Navy. Old Navy is another store that has amazing sales – both online and in store. (Make sure you sign up for their emails! Lots of coupon codes!) My all time favorite yoga capris I own are from Old Navy (No joke, I wear them minimum 2x a week). They are so soft and the perfect length. You can get some adorable looking outfits at ON without breaking your bank account!
