Does your gym membership come free with tuition? Do you still tie your gym bag to your treadmill because your spot doesn't have lockers? Are you lifting weights with sand-filled water bottles? If you answered no to any of these, it's likely that your gym routine has grown up some since the days you first started thinking about fitness… so, why hasn't your gym outfit?
If you're still wearing your old college T-shirt and $5 leggings while you sweat, you probably don't know how good it feels to run in supportive pants, lift weights without worrying about weird pit stains, or try out that new inversion you learned without flashing the cutie stretching next to you. You obviously put in the effort with your day-to-day outfits, so why not do the same with your gym gear? From sports bras you'll want to show off to compression pants that keep everything in place, we've got the inspiring workout duds that'll make the exercise time you clock on the elliptical all the more worthwhile. No excuses now.
