affordable activewear brands for women

Not only is finding time to exercise a challenge, but so is finding high quality activewear that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg! I’m not sure about you, but I have always cringed at the idea of spending $100 on a pair of leggings that I am just going to sweat in. You know what I mean?

Over the years I have made it my mission to find affordable and functional activewear. Not only do these companies have cute clothing, but they stay in place, aren’t see through (they pass the squat test!), and they last a long time. So here is my list of the best, affordable activewear for women:

90 Degree by Reflex

90 Degree by Reflex is hands down my favorite activewear company. I own well over 10 pairs of their leggings, multiple tank tops, and even love their pants. I have honestly never purchased something from them that I haven’t like. I first discovered them at TJ Maxx, but now purchase most of their stuff through Amazon as I find that’s the cheapest. Here are my favorites:

PowerFlex Capris
PowerFlex Tank
Slim Pants


RBX is another brand that I first discovered at TJ Maxx. I was instantly drawn to them for their cute leggings, but I stuck around for their high quality tops as well. Here are some of my favorites:

Mesh Leggings
Yoga Tank Top
Muscle Tank


I first got addicted to Champion in college when we would frequently go to the outlets. The Champion outlet always had the best sales (I can’t pass up a good deal!). I fell in love with their absolute capris and now own 4 pairs in black (i’m not even kidding!) and 2 colored pairs. These pants have withstood 4 years of personal training which means lots of sweat, squats, and chalk! Here are some of my favorites:

Absolute Workout Capris
Cotton Tee
Semi-fitted Pants
Absolute Sports Bra

Under Armour

I know what you’re thinking right now…isn’t Under Armour expensive? To be honest, yes it can be. However they frequently have great deals too! And since it’s such a big name company, you know their products are built to last. Here are some of my favorite, lower priced items:

Tech V-neck
Play Up Shorts
– Heat Gear Capri


I feel like Puma is a seriously underrated activewear brand. I first discovered Puma’s greatness in college when my school would have a huge Puma blowout sale. They would seriously come in and have about a hundred tables full of discounted Puma items. I definitely spent way too much money at these sales, but I still have the clothing pieces years later. Here are my favorites:

Seamless Sports Bra
Explosive Capris
