    Specialty Stores

    Most workout clothing specialty stores offer the latest and greatest in brand name and designer workout clothing. Discount workout clothing is not typically this type of retailer’s forte. If, however, brand name workout clothing is the only kind you will be seen in, it is not impossible to get a great deal.

    Most specialty stores display sales racks throughout the store. Some of the items are clothes that simply could not be sold at the regular price and others are odd sizes or off-season workout clothing. These racks offer the best deals you will likely find throughout the store.

    Specialty stores also offer several sales each year. January is a great time to catch these sales as stores attempt to take advantage of the New Year’s weight loss resolution crowd and the after-Christmas shopper simultaneously. To stay on top of sales and discounts visit the store website and sign up for their newsletter. Not only will you be the first to know of upcoming sales but some companies offer special online only discounts.

    Online Auction Websites

    For a really great discount on workout clothing try shopping the online auction websites. Many of the sellers on these websites buy items wholesale from the manufacturer and sell them online at prices barely above wholesale in an attempt to stay competitive. This is often the best way to find the best discount on workout clothing.

    The key to buying discount workout clothing online is to know your sizes and read the item descriptions closely. Workout clothing is not likely something you want to buy used unless you can get a good look, and smell, at them first. Check for products marked, “new with tags,” or, “NWT.” This will eliminate the guesswork.

    Secondhand Stores

    If you are brave, a secondhand or thrift store can be a great place to find discount workout clothing. Oftentimes the workout clothing that is found at thrift stores is very clean and new. However, you will want to be diligent about checking for mystery stains and any odors that might disturb you later.

    Thrift stores are a viable option because many people purchase workout clothes and never workout, buy the wrong size and forget to return the item or the exercise pays off and they grow out of their clothes before getting a chance to wear them. Items like these, that have not been worn, will still possess the original tags and can be purchased for less than $10.
