Chic (& Affordable) Activewear To Help You Slay Your Workout

If your well-meaning, wellbeing goals have been slowly dwindling and what was a 5 times per week gym plan, has dropped off to 3 at best, then it’s time to get that momentum back with a brand new outfit. Because there’s nothing like sporting some new chic & affordable activewear to get you motivated and moving!

We’ve got you sorted with our chic, affordable activewear sets – check them out below.

PLUS one lucky reader has the chance to WIN an activewear set of your choice from Showpo. For your chance to win, simply comment below with your current fitness goal & why it’s important to you. Entering is as simple as that! Click here for full details.


What did we wear before these babies became mainstream? Trackies and bike shorts? EEK! A well-fitted pair of tights will assist in a higher performance as they become almost a ‘second skin’ so you can easily move. If this doesn’t make sense, just try and imagine working out in jeans…

‘The Limit Tights’ (featured below) are a new design from Showpo and are made in a thicker fabric than your standard tights, which means they’re a) not sheer, and b) really good at sucking you in! Don’t worry though, they’re still breathable so you won’t be swimming in a pool of your own sweat.

No matter your age or how small and how perky your breast are, giving them a decent dost of support is uber important. A good sports bra should be really firm (without cutting off your circulation), comfortable and supportive. To test its effectiveness, try jumping up and down in one; if you have smaller boobs, you should have minimal movement; and for my larger breasted pals, anything more that one ‘bounce’ means it’s not supportive enough.

We have a fun array of sports bras depending on your required support. You can even match it to your tights #cute!

Showpo has  a slew of options depending on your personal preference, whether it’s a fitted crop, stylish tee or something oversized and comfy, we’ve got you covered (literally and figuratively haha).

Make sure you get fitted – you’ll notice a DRASTIC difference in your performance! Personally, I’m a huge fan of Nike and Asics, but it’s best to head to the shops, try and few brands & styles on and then determine the best option for you. Tip: Head to the shops to do your try-before-you-buy work, but then purchase your runners online, where  there’s almost always a savings to be had. Try ebay or Google the shoe you want + the word ‘discount’ or ‘sale’, and see what comes up (just make sure you’re not getting fakes!).

Now pop on your headphones, stream some tunes (check out the slew of workout playlist options on Spotify) and get pumpin’!

Don’t forget – You have the chance to win an activewear set of your choice from Showpo. Simply comment below what your current fitness goal is & why it’s important to you. For full details see here

    It’s not about being able to run 10km straight
    It’s not about looking sexy in a revealing outfit
    It’s not about having abs (even though that’d be nice, lets be honest :3 )

  • My fitness goal is simple, to prioritise wellness instead of weight loss. If my goal is one of holistic health and not external focus – that’s the key.

  • I know its not all about “the outfit”. We all have budgets and priorities argh! However I have noticed when I exercise in well fitting well made fitness pieces, all of a sudden I feel more motivated and better about myself. Its that old thing my dad used to tell me, dress for the job you want. I now have the job I want and I know when I dress thoughtfully and feel good in my skin, my day just flows better. When the fitness outfit is also affordable as well as being amazing….WIN WIN!

    Massive goal to lose 30 kg!!
    Clean eating and exercise

  • During my pregnancy I gained 20kg and after I gave birth I lost weight by being active and looking after a newborn but then I got complacent and now I’m easily turning to quick sugary treats to keep up with my baby then hit a low later on with no energy and then i can’t be bothered going for that walk or playing outside but this year I am turning it around and looking after myself so in return I can look after my baby and let her grow up with a healthy positive mum who is happy to play and go for walks :-)

  • Getting married in about 6 months… needing help to continue rehabilitation after a severe burn out which left me totally unable to move for a few weeks. Recuperating from this was difficult especially since work ended at that moment. winning fantastic active wear would definitely make me better like I’m supported (no pun intended) :)

  • This wonderful year with all kids in full time school my fitness goal is to get my tummy back. I’ve read dozens of pages on how to exercise to repair tummy muscles. They state it can be done without surgery so I’m going to do my best to avoid surgery and give it my all. With my new casual outdoor job I’m going to need all the core strength I can build.

  • Giving up smoking! My health is my top propriety for 2018, I want to make sure I’m around for as long as possible in this wonderful world.
