Workout Gear On a Budget

Don’t sweat the high-priced gear; some of these are just as good

-Julie Ryan Evans

Workout gear is important, but really it’s about what you do in it that matters most, AND there’s a whole slew of bargain-priced gear that’s quite cute and functional as well. In fact, my FAVORITE running shorts are from the first place you should visit in your quest for gear for less – TARGET! Note: Unfortunately, the shorts were discontinued, or believe me, I would share my find with you, because they ROCK. But there’s more to be found …

ATTENTION, WAL-MART SHOPPERS – check out some of the new workout gear there! You can get an entire velour track suit for just $18! That’s right, $9 for the zip-up hoodie and $9 for the pants – both of which come in an array of colors. And the giant superstore is now also carrying merchandise by Danskin, like this tank with shelf bra for $12! and some gear by the legendary Norma Kamali, like these jog pants for $12.

Also, worth popping into once in a while are your local T.J. Maxx, Marshall’s and Ross stores. While you’ll have to do some digging, their workout gear racks are often overflowing with good-quality, brand-name gear in a wide range of styles and sizes. It’s hit-or-miss, but when you hit, you can hit it big.

So go on and get your sweat on … without sweating the price.
