Sometimes I question myself, do I really need that many workout clothes? They are my “uniform” but I always find more excuses to get more, I mean they do turn into mops of perspiration at the end of the day so why wear fancy clothes? but hand up to a girl that do not want to look good? I also know that sports wear are expensive therefore I've listed ways to burn your fats, not your pocket!
I know its very superficial to want to look pretty when you are after all just going to the gym to workout, but I’ve seen many girls around the gym feeling unconfident and adjusting their tops umpteen numbers of time and taking more energy to check what they are wearing in the wash room rather than actually working out, i am not judging just that i spend so much time at work, i analyse a lot of things, even how many people have used the same mat and wonder how much perspiration it had soaked up, I'm grossed out just thinking about it, also ladies i understand that it doesn’t make it any easier when there is another gender present unless you join an all female gym or workout at home.
So why not make some effort buying sports wear that's not only comfortable but looks good too, instead of spending money on a new pair of jeans or a dress, when you buy workout clothes you not only want to look good in them but you are investing in your health, it will give you the reason to actually start working out more or even trigger you to want to workout because you have after all spent money and put in effort and buying that outfit in the first place, roll your eyes on me, i know all of us like looking good and smelling good, even some men, else why do they spend so much time pumping biceps. *wink *wink*
Have you gone shopping lately and noticed that you’re favourite store added a new addition to their range of clothes, the active wear section! How genius is that, not only they are chic, it is affordable in compared to the big brands that’s been in the market. But I always tell myself ,that we should own at least a pair of good tights, below are some brands to consider if you do not want to burn your pocket.
If you are going to start working out 2-3 times a week here's what you need just to ensure you have enough time to wash them,unless you have helpers or your mom's hobby is washing clothes then you better ensure than you have this in your closet.
1) a pair of tights low or short
2)a pair of shorts (for outdoor activities)
3)2 top ( 1 sleeve, 1 sleeveless or your preference)
4)2 pair of sports bra or i actually fancy buying tops with bra inside.
H&M SPORTS COLLECTION
I dropped by H&M and pretty decent quality! it one of the range that carries men's wear too.
COTTON ON BODY ACTIVEWEAR
I seen a lot of girls on instagram prancing in cotton on tights and damn it looks good, variety of fun colours and super loud design.
FOREVER 21 ACTIVEWEAR
I saw this online, a friend of mine told me they carry sport wear! and forever 21 activewear is pretty similar with Victoria Secret sport range, very chic and affordable.
GAP FIT SPORTS COLLECTION
Love the material of Gap Fit, the price not so much, the price is similar to a Nike of course i choose you Nike ( hehe) but hey check them out!
GOOD OLD FBT
When i played netball, this was hot! every girls who wanted to be hotter didn't want to wear school pants but fbt!! So comfy, i use to live in them under my skirts in school and i would roll them up and make it even shorter but they do make shorter version now! super cheap too !!
So there you go, check out all this new sportswear range thats slightly more affordable than bigger brands but if you do fancy Nikes or Adidas here is a couple of tips to save up a little since they do last forever!
1)Find out how to own a membership , mostly comes with discounted price also during birthday month you get to enjoy up to 20% discount.
2) Shop with another friend to enjoy discounts, i mean not everyone can afford a minimum spending of $150 dollars to receive a 20% discount, but if you do have a friend, the hole gets smaller.
3)Shop at the Factory Outlet! they are not the latest collection but way more cheaper.
4)If your friends,parents or partner ask what you want for your birthday, say sport wear! if you want something ask!! instead of getting another watch or a new gadget.
5) Shop online, yes sometimes you are able to save more when you shop online, gather your friends and order them together to cut cost.
There you go! have a good weekend everyone!
