Workout Fashion on a Budget

Fabletics Review DisclosureWorkout Fashion on a Budget - fabletics

What helps motivate you to work out? Is it the goal of being more healthy? Working toward fitting into a now-too-tight pair of jeans? Big goals are great for motivation, but I often find that little things help me get going and get my sweat on. One thing that always gives me a boost is fabulous workout gear that I actually LIKE! Sure, an old t-shirt and shorts technically works for working out, but a great workout outfit (like the ones I have been getting from Fabletics) that both functions well AND looks good is a lot more motivating. Workout fashion on a budget is even MORE motivating!

Fabletics Review - Fabulous Workout Gear

Earlier this year I did a little “mini test” with myself. I work from home so its easy for me to throw on some comfy but ugly old thing and start working. To see if it made a difference, each day I got up and put on a great workout outfit, complete with sneakers. Guess what I found? I moved and exercised a lot more during the day. For one thing, I was ready to head out the door and walk my dog at any time during the day. And when I headed out to do errands, I found myself more likely to make a few extra trips around the aisles of the supermarket because I was dressed for the activity.

Dressing in GOOD workout gear can be pricey AND it can be hard to find outfits I like without getting too boring and repetitive. That’s where Fabletics comes in! It’s a fun and affordable way to build an awesome wardrobe of fitness gear. To help find gear that is best for you, they have a brief quiz that helps them create personalized outfit recommendations fit for your lifestyle. You can then choose from thousands of styles curated just for you.

Fabletics 3 Piece

I ordered a few pieces for a Fabletics review and one thing I love about Fabletics is that they offer complete two and three piece workout outfits. I always have a hard time coordinating pieces that will look good together. Fabletics takes care of that for me! Plus, the outfits often have choices of several coordinating colors, making even more mix and match pieces available for more looks.
