My Fav Cheap and Not Cheap Workout Clothes

My “work clothes” are workout clothes, so that’s really cool! Looking through my workout wardrobe, I have a wide array of brands that I buy….Nike, Under Armour, Lululemon, Athleta, Gap, Champion (from Target), Impact Fitness, Adidas, Zumbawear, Old Navy, Marika, BCG (Academy brand), Avia, etc. I know, I know. It’s a lot, but it’s part of the job…. Truth is, I LOVE workout clothes! I would rather shop for workout clothes than anything. When my 19 year-old daughter and I go shopping, usually around the halfway point of our shopping trip, I have to make a vow to her that I won’t shop for anymore workout wear. In each store we enter, I feel the strong gravitational pull of the workout section. I’m powerless to it.

Some of my workout clothes are pricey and some are downright cheap, but, like dear children, I love them all. A couple of my “children” stand out as exceptional, so I thought I would pass along my favorite expensive and non-expensive pieces that I currently wear.

Favorite Pricey Item


Lululemon Energy Bra


Oh my, how I love this sports bra. I’m a jumper. I love plyo and any move that is big and requires lots of power. BUT there are certain things that I want to stay put while I do these awesome power moves, ya know? This bra is fantastic for that. It also gives a nice shape without the dreaded “uniboob” look. I have several colors and love them all!

Favorite Non-Pricey Item

C9 by Champion Capri Leggings13955509


These fun tights are cute, comfy and launder well. No matter if I’m teaching my body sculpting or Zumba classes or running or doing yoga, I am comfortable and don’t have to worry about them riding up or down. Also, they look and feel much more expensive than they are. Such a win!

    I like workout clothes, they must be comfortable and fashionable. When it comes to brands, Nike is my favorite. I have been suing its products for some time now and I can say that The clothes which they make are really comfortable and supportable during workout sessions.
