While it’s easy to spend a small fortune on fitness gear, you don’t have to break the bank to look good while working out. Here, eight websites that offer deep discounts on everything from running kicks to GPS watches to sweat-wicking tanks. Happy shopping!
Don’t be fooled by the name—this online retailer of discounted outdoor gear and camping equipment also sells brands you see at the gym, like Under Armour, Adidas, Asics and even Vibram. Look for the “Hot Deal!” tag on items for the biggest discounts.
Think of the Clymb as Rue La La for the outdoors/fitness set. You have to sign up to join the private-sale network, but it’s totally worth it: Members get insider pricing on premium-brand gear and apparel. Deals are as much as 70 percent off retail price. Currently on the sale block: men’s and women’s running shoes from Asics and Saucony, as well as gear like bike helmets and yoga mats.
Thank goodness this small Maryland-based shoe shop has an online store. Even the apparel is discounted. AND shipping is free for orders over $65. Win.
Another private-network sale site for fitness enthusiasts, Planetgear.com has a new deal each day featuring popular fitness brands for cheap. (Sorry guys—this one’s for ladies only.) But you have to be quick: if someone beats you to an item, it’s gone forever.
Check out the sale section for seriously marked-down merchandise. Lots and lots of it.
This site can take a bit of digging, but hunters are rewarded with good deals on basics like sports bras, Spandex shorts, outerwear and tech gear. The shoes are probably the best deals on the site; you can find kicks from Mizuno, Brooks, Saucony, New Balance and more for well under $100. Bonus: You get free shipping on your first order, and dirt-cheap flat-rate shipping for $2.95 after that.
Ebay and Amazon (Sorry, I had to!)
When nothing but the super expensive stuff will do (and hey, I’m not judging), these are the places to go. Taking a second to bid one cent on a Lululemon top (guilty) is totally worth it when you might end up paying $20 rather than $80.
