Style and Performance: Affordable Activewear

I’m partnering with Gordmans today to share my 2016 fitness goals and the affordable activewear that’ll help me achieve them. I have one major fitness goal this year—to embrace physical challenges outside of my comfort zone.

Using a TKO 4-way resistance band (c/o)

When I started lifting weights a few years ago, I shocked my entire system, and my body responded by growing stronger than ever. Every time I lift weights, I feel empowered knowing that what I’m doing is a direct investment into a healthier version of myself.

I’ve been finalizing my workout regimen this past month. Can you believe January is almost over? This year, I’m scheduling my workouts like I do any other important meeting. I’m also planning to keep track of my daily physical activities in a journal. Right now, I’m in the gym 4 to 6 hours a week for group muscle works, group training, Zumba, and my first new fitness challenge of the year — PiYo.

Sweating it out in the gym has put serious demands on my activewear. I need high performance pieces that are moisture wicking, soft, stretchy, and durable. I was so excited, then, to explore the off-price activewear options at Gordmans. I’m even more thrilled to share the super stylish, high performance Puma separates that I found there at amazingly low prices.

From Gordmans Active:

Puma sports bra, $12.99 (orig. $25)

Puma pullover with hood, $14.99 (orig. $35)

Puma leggings, $19.99 (orig. $50)
Journal, $4.99 (orig. $10)

I’m most particular about the leggings I wear. I alway choose black, so I love finding unique style variations like on these Puma leggings. I’ve already tested them out too. They’re moisture-wicking and they stay in place. I can’t believe they’re only $20 at Gordmans.

      Thanks, Tara! That pattern is adorable, right? There was an entire Puma collection in Gordmans with the same pattern in a few colors too.

      I believe you, Stacey! I'm already hooked on PiYo. I felt so challenged after my first class that I wanted more.

      That's so awesome! Planning has been so crucial for me keeping on track too. I need to tighten up my meal planning though. Thanks for mentioning that.

      Cute, right, Tia!?! Definitely check Gordmans. This pattern was available in a few pieces and colors in one of my local stores. And, those prices? So affordable.

    Workout gear can get expensive and sometimes I want to wear something other than my husband's t-shirts. Lol great post and I LOVE the black patterned Puma leggings. �� #BLMGirls

      Ain't that the truth, Kamron! I've spent too much to get quality pieces in the past. Now that I know pieces like these Puma separates are available at Gordmans and at such low prices, my wallet will get much needed relief.

    I'm on their site, they don't have anything Puma

      I couldn't find the Puma items online either, Djedji. My store had plenty though. Do you have a store in your area? That's your best bet for finding them.
