Where To Buy Affordable Workout Clothes

It almost hurts to pay $100+ for a pair of yoga pants, but they make your butt look too good, so why not? (Ladies, the struggle is too real). I understand that a lot of women want to look good when they step into the gym. Whether that means rocking those brand new Nikes, or a color coordinated tank and running shorts, it seems as if wearing an old t-shirt and last seasons workout pants just doesn't cut it anymore. Not to worry! For anyone on a budget, or someone looking to purchase new workout clothes without breaking the bank, I have compiled a list of companies that sell inexpensive workout gear. And no, I wouldn't dare to mention Lululemon.

H&M

Leggings are usually $25 and workout tanks around $10. Available in print and solid colors. Also, if you're interested, you should check out the accessories such as colorful combination locks, water bottles, socks, and headbands to add to your gym bag.

Forever 21

Racerback tanks for $9, sports bras for $15, and spandex shorts for $6? You really can't find a better deal than that.

Target

Workout clothes are typically good quality with low price tags. The good thing about purchasing items here is that often times the clothing will go on sale and you will get a good deal no matter what.

Old Navy

Pants are under $20 and they have sizes that accommodate all body types. It's a win-win situation.

Nordstrom

This department store carries quality items that will be durable, comfortable, and stylish. It also has a wide variety of workout brands including Under Armour, Nike, and Zella.

Marshalls/T.J. Maxx

You can always find some hidden gems in these two places. It's worth checking out their yoga mats, too.

Any other places you would add to the list? Leave in the comments below.

Marshalls and TJ Maxx are THE BEST! This is so helpful though, I never understood how a pair of leggings could cost $100....
Target Mossimo or Merona black tank tops and plain black running pants from Fila, TekGear, or Nike are my go to. Otherwise, H&M is alright. I'm a personal trainer/crossfit instructor and run marathons, and this combination has never let me down. I don't see the purpose in expensive workout clothes... $5 black tank tops last me years, while the few brand-name running shirts I've had got ruined within weeks or months. I've never paid full price for a pair of running pants either. Kohl's usually has Fila and Tekgear brand pants on sale, and they're just as great as those ridiculously priced ones at a sporting goods or name brand store. Black=minimal sweat stains (: And it's slimming! And! Cotton let's your skin breathe easier, and ultimately your sweat won't smell as bad in cotton as it would with synthetics.
Have you heard of Bebe Sport? The price is mid-range and the quality is amazing. Other places I go to for workout pieces are American Eagle (Aerie) or PINK. They're cute and they have amazing sales.
You cannot go wrong with either of those stores @LauraFisher! And the sad part is a majority of people who do pay that kind of cash for those leggings/pants have never actually been to a yoga class....
@LiquidPotatoes you're right. Kohl's have great sales and i have purchased a few camping and workout pieces from there, still in mint condition. Also, I love your clothing tips!

3 Skin Products That Have Actually Worked for Me
(image: glossier) Are you tired of buying products and seeing a whopping total of zero results? Same, girl. So today I'm going to share a few products that have actually had a noticeable impact on my skin. (image: mom fabulous) 1. RoC Deep Wrinkle Retinol Correction Holy cow guys. This stuff is absolutely magic in a bottle. Retinol in any dosage higher than this can only come with a perscription because it is incredibly strong. Creams with this product, if the dosage is right, practically erase fine (and not so fine) lines. I attacked my crows feet with this cream and I kid you not, I saw improvement and near-elimination of my deepest wrinkle in one week. One week. The little tube is a little pricey but good God does it work! Warning: I used the Day and Night cream religiously and after a few days I noticed that my skin was rather red. The labels warns that this happens and you skin will get used to it, but it persisted for longer than I liked. I stopped for a week, then went to only using the night cream and I haven't had a problem since. Retinol is a serious chemical so don't over-do it! Get your hands on it here! (image: pop sugar) 2. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment The winter weather is not kind to my lips and there is nothing I hate more than that tight, almost sticky-dry feeling you get when your lips are parched. While drinking water helps, I found that this lip treatment not only moisturized my lips but softened them, slightly lessened the lines on my lips, aaaand just as an added bonus, it tastes delicious. I got the color 'Bloom' which is supposed to work for pretty much all skin tones, but check out their collection and find one that works for you! Get your hands on it here! (image: klairs) 3. Klair's Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask This is so sci-fi it's not even funny. The mask has a quality that no matter how much you use it, it will slide back into its previous shape like memory foam. So every time you open the jar it looks brand new. Because of this, when you put the mask on your face is really squeezes into your skin. When I wake up, my skin is literally glowing. Warning: I only use this once and week because I found that if I used it more than once a week I got a small breakout (gone the next day) on my nose. That could have been related to my time of the month, but I didn't want to risk it again, plus you really don't need to use it that often! Get your hands on it here! What are some products that have ACTUALLY done something noticeable for you?
Self-care: Skincare Routine
Hello fam! Taking care of your outside is a part of self care. Skin care is not only good practice or hygiene, but can help reduce stress with the time and quality of products that you use. I will share my updated skin care routine. FYI my skin type is dry and sensitive. 1. Music I always have to play some music and groove when I take care of my skin. As ya know I'm either rocking out to BTS or some rock band! 2. Products for Day Time: Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam and Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer This cleanser is super gentle and so silky. It does have a super light scent. This does not dry out my skin.I purchased my on Amazon. It's under 20 bucks and a little goes a long way. I use this in the morning. This is expensive!!! I will say about $65 bucks USA coins. However, a little goes a long way and the formula is like hydrating your skin with silk. This is light weight but super hydrating. Great to apply before make up as well. 3. Night Time Products: Biore Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser, Real Cica Essense Pads, and Dr. Jart Ceramidin This cooling gel cleanser gives me life and soothes my skin at night time. It feels so relaxing. Make sure not to leave in skin for too long if you have sensitive skin. These pads claim to be a light skin peel. I will say that it does soften my skin, reduces irritation and or inflammation, and leaves skin supple with a glow. You can purchase these on Amazon too. This moisturizer has so many natural ingredients and does have a lemon scent. This is thicker but super hydrating. This does help reduce irritation as well. This did cost about $35 bucks. 4. Makeup face: Take the day off Cleansing Milk For my make up I double cleanse. I use this Cleansing Milk followed by either or wash and my night time moisturizer. This was $25 at Ulta. Sorry folks I know I should use spf but I don't. I used to use this sun blocker but it ended up breaking me out after 6 months of using it.
Doctors can personify the voices heard by people with schizophrenia. Instead of tormenting patients, the avatars get nicer over time, and in some cases totally relieve auditory hallucinations.
Schizophrenia: a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to understand what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, hearing voices that others do not hear, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and a lack of motivation. About 65% of patients with schizophrenia experience verbal auditory hallucinations, typically in the form of voices that emanate from perceived “others,” who tend to fit the same unsavory profile – they're domineering, derogatory and unremittingly hostile. (source) They tell them to do violent things, they cause them to lose control. But in a test in 2009-2011, there was a breakthrough in dealing with these violent voices. Giving the voices a face. The therapy allowed patients to create an avatar, or visual representation of the source of their perceived auditory hallucinations, known as the “persecutor,” whose speech closely matched the pitch and tone of the persecutory voice in their heads. Patients were then encouraged to engage in a dialogue with the avatar, who was controlled by a therapist. The results of the therapy were astounding, with some patients finding their hallucinations completely vanishing. Of course, there were some that did not have any change, but with the second round of testing an even higher percentage of patients found that their hallucinations lessened. According to the study’s lead author Tom K J Craig, PhD, FRCP, emeritus professor of social psychiatry at King’s College London, “The operation of power within this relationship is viewed as crucial…the voice-hearer assum[es] a submissive role characterized by feelings of inferiority and powerlessness that can reflect social relationships more generally,” researchers wrote. “The therapist (switching between speaking as therapist and as avatar) facilitates a dialogue in which the voice-hearer gradually gains increased power and control within the relationship, with the initially omnipotent voice loosening its grip over the hearer by becoming more conciliatory over time." Basically, they made the avatar be nicer overtime and gave the patient the feeling of having control over it. For the full article: here
