Is That Workout Gear Worth the Splurge?

I will be the first one to admit that I am a bargain hunter. My mom raised me growing up that if it’s not on sale we are not buying it and that still holds true with me today, for just about everything. However, when it comes to workout gear, I will be the first to admit that there are certain purchases that are worth the splurge.

Worth the Splurge

Good Shoes

Hands down good shoes are worth it, especially if you are a runner, cyclist, or an extreme sports junky. Your entire body will be thanking you if you splurge and get a properly fit high-quality pair of shoes. You know, even if you just tend to stand a lot I would highly recommend splurging on a good pair of kicks. Shops like the Running Room have trained staff that will help you pick out the right pair of shoes for your feet.

Sports Bras

Ladies, it is simple anatomy…we have boobs and let’s be real…they bounce, especially during exercise. Your girls and your back will be thanking you if you invest in a good supportive sports bra. You can check out one of my favorite brand – Victoria’s Secret and why I am so in love with them here.

*Tip: Invest in just a couple nice sports bras, depending on how many days of week you work out. These can be hand washed in the sink – Saving you some dough!

Moisture Wicking Workout Clothing

Now depending on what exercise or activity you will be doing, moisture wicking gear is well worth it. There is no worse feeling than being dripping wet with sweat and experiencing some very unpleasant chafing due to it. This again is especially worth the splurge for runners, cyclist, and extreme sports junkies.
