Under $50: Non-Boring Workout Gear

Everytime I buy a new outfit, I can't wait to go to work the next day and reel in the compliments. In the same vein, everytime I buy new workout clothes, I can't wait slip on my running shoes and get out the door. I wasn't always like this.

Why would I spend money on fancy tank tops and nylon shorts when I could just wear my pajama boxer shorts and a t-shirt from that one year I was on the high school track team? Well, not only has watching the Olympics inspired me to trade happy hours for runs along the Hudson River, it has also inspired me to look a little more presentable on my workouts.

As it turns out, there are a lot of affordable exercise clothes that are also really fun and cute. Click through, and then hit the gym to show off your new look.
