With the warm weather finally making its return, it’s the perfect time of year to, um, spring for some updated workout gear. (See what we did there?) After all, research has shown that what you wear can affect your mindset, and new activewear and fitness gadgets can be a great motivator.
But that doesn’t mean we’re looking to shell out $100 for workout gear that’s just going to get sweaty. To help you stay on trend without feeling like you spring-cleaned your wallet, we compiled a list of our favorite workout gear under $20.
Women’s Racerback High-Impact Fitness Bra, 3-Pack (Amazon)
Not only are these moisture-wicking, high-impact sports bras supportive enough for even the toughest HIIT workout, but you actually get three bras for less than you’d normally spend on one. Can you say steal?
Neleus Men’s Athletic Workout Running Pants (Amazon)
With an elastic waistband and stretchy, quick-drying fabric, these tapered track pants are comfy enough for a long run and lounging on the couch afterward. (Unfortunately, those chiseled abs are not included.) Check the size chart before ordering — these can run a bit small, so you may need to size up.
ZOOSIXX High-Waisted Brushed Buttery Soft Yoga Pants, 2-Pack (Amazon)
If your workout drawer is overflowing with gray and black basics, add a pop of color with the bright, spring-ready patterns on these yoga leggings. The high-waisted cut is flattering, and the soft microfiber fabric has the perfect amount of stretch.
ODODOS High Waisted Out Pocket Tummy Control Shorts (Amazon)
Behold: a stylish, functional, non-see-through pair of workout shorts for the thrifty shopper. These versatile shorts are made from antimicrobial, four-way stretch fabric, and include a convenient pocket detail for your phone or wallet.
Fit Active Sports Ventilated Weight Lifting Gloves (Amazon)
Say adios to rough, blistered hands. These unisex weightlifting gloves come with full palm protection and extra grip to help prevent rips and calluses — at a price point you can totally justify, even if you don’t lift every day.
Physix Gear Sport Resistance Loop Bands Set of 4 (Amazon)
It’s not always easy to keep up with your workout schedule while you’re traveling, but these durable latex resistance bands are perfect for on-the-go toning and stretching — and they fold into a tiny travel bag that you can easily stash in your carry-on.
SB SOX Compression Socks (Amazon)
Many runners and heavy lifters swear by compression socks for comfort and support during (and after!) a heart-pumping workout. But they can be pricey — which is why we love these socks with graduated compression technology, breathable fabric, a rainbow of color options, and a reasonable price tag.
Mippo Open Back Sports Tank Top (Amazon)
Layer in style with this tie-back workout tank — the mesh cut-out helps you stay cool whether you’re hiking, doing a HIIT workout, or taking a hot yoga class.
Under Armour Men’s Tech Graphic Shorts (Amazon)
Under Armour’s quick-drying, super-soft, lightweight tech fabric offers chafe-free comfort — and at this price, you can stock up and skip laundry day.
GymBoss Interval Timer (Amazon)
Whether you’re doing a HIIT workout at home or following an interval run training plan for weight loss, this timer is a must-have. Set your interval lengths, and the timer will beep or vibrate when it’s time to switch up your intensity — so you don’t have to spend your whole workout staring at a stopwatch.
