November Fitness Blogging Challenge – OOTD

This was a post from a challenge I did in October.  Since it is a workout outfit, I decided to recycle it and use if for the fitness blogging challenge.

My OOTD is a workout outfit because I went to a spin class first thing this morning.

*I get all my sports bras at Old Navy because they have removeable padding and they come in lots of patterns and colors.

*My favorite place to buy workout clothes is Athleta because of the range of sizes, quality of clothing and styles of clothing.  It is part of the Gap/Old Navy family so I can use my Old Navy card and earn reward points.  They also have great online sales and clearance sales.

*I got these Nike capris at Kohls.  I loved the pattern, but was a little disappointed at the checkout.  I received a 30% coupon for having a Kohls charge and when I went to checkout the cashier said that the 30% was not good for Nike.  The coupons used to be good on EVERYTHING, but they now have rules like the other stores that stipulate you can’t use their coupon on any name brands.  After all the name brands are taken out of the mix, there isn’t much left.  This made me really sad.

*My spin shoes were from the REI online outlet.  They have great prices in the online outlet.  You can get last season’s (or several seasons ago) products for super-low prices.  I really didn’t care about the brand of spin shoes; I just got a pair that were inexpensive and fit well.

So that’s my OOTD…if you are looking for workout clothes, check out the links I included:)  I am all about the deep discount so you can find some great deals.

  • Oh, I used to take a spin class, too, a few years ago! Such a great sport! I really like your workout outfit – the Nike capris are so nice. I hate when coupons aren’t good for some specific brands, ugh :/ New Look once sent me a gift card so I just filled my shopping cart with a lot of awesome clothes from their summer sale but when I wanted to check out, a message popped up telling me that the gift card couldn’t be used to buy sale items. So annoying!

    Hope you have a nice day!

  • That’s a great post with fantastic deal ideas. Haven’t done spinning in so long, but have contemplated starting back. Thanks for sharing.

  • I love your spin shoes!

    I have a pair, too. I feel like you get more control, versus regular shoes in a spin class. Do spin in a class or ride on the road?

    • I spin in a class and I also like spin shoes better than sneakers because my toes get smooshed in the foot cages otherwise:)

    • If I worked at Old Navy, I’d use my entire paycheck on clothes…lol. One of my favorite places to shop for clothes. Good luck

  • Wow your spin outfit looks wonderful, loving your great deals!

    • There is a spin instructor who plays music and tells you what to do. She also gives reminders of proper form, etc.

  • I’ve always wanted to take a spin class! I’ll have to add that to my growing list of types of fitness activities to try. Any tips for when I begin? Love the gear by the way, never bought anything from Alethea but I shop at Kohls all the time, they have so many great discounts 🙂

    • I LOVE spin…a lot of people don’t want to try it because they say their butt hurts too much, but I never had that problem. If it is “a pain in the butt” (lol), you can get a gel seat that slips right over the bike’s seat. Try it out…you may LOVE it.
