Have you shopped for workout or active wear recently? It’s expensive! Not only that, it’s difficult to find workout wear that fits perfectly and comes in the styles that are in line with what you are looking for. Take control of your workout wear wardrobe by making it yourself! We’ve pulled common workout items that you need to get through your daily, weekly or monthly workouts and priced them out.
