Let’s be honest I live in activewear. I know a lot of people that live in the state of “leggings aren’t pants” but let me tell ya’ll, those people are not my people.
Maybe it’s because I was an athlete and coach for 4 years, but I just love how comfortable activewear is. Lately I’ve seen brands like Outdoor Voices and Lululemon become increasingly popular for their amazing activewear lines, and while I’m sure they are great, I just cannot fathom paying $90+ for a pair of leggings.
So today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite affordable activewear pieces that I love and have been gym tested!
Favorite Sports Bras
Joylab from Target has so many different styles of Sports bras that you are sure to find on that works for every shape. I typically have to size up to a large in their bras because they do run small but that also means they really help keep things in place if ya know what I mean!
Aerie play high waisted leggings with pockets. They give the perfect amount of coverage, don’t over stretch and they HAVE POCKETS!
So there is a tie for my favorite sneakers. For running, I absolutely love Asics. They provide a ton of support but are a bit heavier than what I would wear everyday. So for everything else, I wear my new balance fresh foam sneakers. It literally feels like walking on a cloud. Not the best support but for Zumba, calisthenics or a walk at the park they are perfect!
Favorite Athletic Socks
Under Armor hands down. Perfect thickness so that and arch support so I know my socks won’t be a nuisance during my workout.
Besides wearing an old T-shirt, I really love the tops from Fabletics. Although Fabletics is known for their leggings I am more a fan of their tops. So many colors and the most breathable material make these one of my favorites.
