These Resource Girls are always on the hunt for affordable workout clothes that don't look or feel cheap. It's harder than you think! As with all fashion there are some staple pieces we would condone paying a little bit more for - nice running shoes, black yoga pants, etc. However, for most items we've discovered some pretty great workout gear that won't suck the life right out of your paycheck.

Have you heard of the new Gaiam line at Kohl's? They have great quality tanks, tops, pants, and sports bras that are affordable and usually on sale. The tank Nicole is wearing (pictured to the left) was $25 without a coupon. Click here to get your Kohl's coupons.

Sometimes you find great workout gear in unexpected places! If you live in the South Bend area check out Ali on the Boulevard. We're slightly obsessed with Ali Oesch jewelry, her unique pieces of clothing, and now this bomb new yoga line. LC got Cat this yoga tank (pictured above) for her birthday.

If you hang out at The Resource Girls for more than five minutes you will quickly learn we are obsessed with positive vibes. It would then make sense why we love the Chin Up Apparel line and all their motivational tanks.
There's nothing like being at the end of your rope in diesel strength, looking up and seeing your "Killin It" tank staring back at you and knowing that you can push just a little bit harder, crank out a few more reps, and press on for a few more minutes.
Chin Up tanks are sold at Target and JCPenney.

Lululemon has a great "we made too much" section. Don't say we didn't warn you, checking this too often could get you in trouble. 
This top is Cat's favorite Lulu sale find and it's lasted years! She paid $33. 
All of these items are final sale.

Athleta also has a great sale section. 
Cat paid $30 for these capris.
One advantage to shopping Athleta's sale versus Lululemon's is that Athleta has the "Give-it-a Workout Guarantee" which allows for returns.

We don't recommend going into Nordstrom if you're trying to save money. However, Zella, Nordstrom's store brand of workout gear, is pretty great, especially on sale. The only problem is walking into Nordies to browse said sale racks. We recommend putting blinders on, walking with your head down or putting your hood up works too!
