7 Unknown Spots to Score Affordable Workout Clothes

November 11, 2013 3 min read

I'm always on the lookout for a change up from my usual attire...although it only sees the inside of my garage on most days...there's something about having something cute to increase confidence.  And desire to workout.  :) So without further ado...a lovely article I ran across on Shape's website and thought I would share it with you all. 1. Want something fun and unique that no one else in your gym will be wearing? Dancewear Solutions may say it's for dancers, but their active wear works just as well for lifting weights or kickboxing as it does for plies and split jumps. While the quality isn't as high as, say, Lululemon, the fit is great and their clearance section can't be beat. Plus, at just $3 -$25 a piece you don't have to feel bad about getting rid of them when you can't get the gym funk to wash out. 2.Like Gilt.com but for fitness die-hards, PlanetGear.com has a new sale every day featuring your favorite fitness brands for a fraction of the price. And because they feature everything from ski goggles to water bottles to running shoes, you're not just limited to clothes. The only downside is that like any deal site, once the items are gone, they're gone! Registration is required but free. 3. Don't discount this chain store—when it comes to workout gear, their stuff is solid. While you probably won't be the only the girl wearing that cute floral top, Old Navy makes up for it with cheap (but still decent quality) staples like yoga pants, compression tights, and sports bras. And they have one of the largest selections of plus-size workout clothing. 4.J.C. Penney: Not just for grandmas looking for their next Christmas sweater anymore! I recently wandered in on a whim and was amazed by how diverse and, yes, stylish their Xersion line of workout gear is. With new stock arriving every other month or so, there's plenty of variety, and the older stuff goes to clearance quickly—you can pick up a sweat-wicking top for as little as $6. Even better, the quality is great. I've been wearing them for years now and my J.C. Penney running capris have outlasted my much pricier pair from a very popular brand. 5.I get so excited every time the Athleta catalog shows up at my house. Unfortunately their stuff, while excellent quality, is usually out of my price range. But keep an eye on their clearance and you can find some great deals. 6.When nothing but the super expensive stuff will do (and hey, I'm not judging! I once had to have a running skirt that cost more than a week's worth of groceries), go to Ebay.com andCraigslist.org first. Often you can find Lucy, Lululemon, Nike, and Athleta stuff brand new with the tags still on for less than half of what you'd pay at the store. Even the "slightly used" items are usually in very good condition. 7.DIY: Did you know there are more than 100 ways to cut up an old t-shirt? You can make a halter top or a funky tank or even yoga pants in just a few minutes. You can follow an online tutorial or just let your creativity run wild. And no worries for you non-crafty types, very little sewing is required. Just be careful to do a test run in your shirt at home so it won't accidentally come apart at the gym (like it did for me—thank heavens for sports bras!). Bonus: this one is completely free! Ok...while #7 seems like it just got thrown in for good measure I'd like to add a few.  Kohls usually has some pretty good sales on their athletic clothing.  I scored a great deal on a pair of Fila shorts a couple of weeks back.  Just remember there is a fine line between 'you get what you pay for' and paying for the tag on the back of the shirt.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
