Updated: Jun 29, 2019

For me, the best gym attire should not only make me look good but it should also make me feel good because of the quality and not to forget, the affordability too! On top of gym classes and other things in between like nutrition and health, workout attire is the one thing you can save on in order to continue with your healthy lifestyle.

Gone were the days of sloppy tees and faded tracksuits. Say hi to all kinds of affordable workout gear that you can get at these stores across Malaysia!

1. Decathlon

There is a good reason why I placed Decathlon as number one in the list because it has practically everything you could ever need in order to exercise. If make-up enthusiasts get excited at Sephora, then fitness buffs would go bonkers at Decathlon! Score yoga pants, fitness watches, and various workout accessories at affordable prices here, in store and also online. You can also get multiple workout outfits without denting your wallet as a lot of the workout tops and pants are priced as low as RM30! If you're worrying about the quality, the items are durable enough for daily use and the designs are modern and simple. Decathlon also offers great return policy in case you change your mind after the purchase.

Best to shop for: Affordable workout attires, sports and outdoor accessories.

2. Sports Direct

Sports Direct is also one of the big guns when it comes to workout attire especially if you're into established sports brands like Adidas, Puma, Nike, and the likes, then both of these stores could be your go to place. They do offer more updated collections compared to other discounted outlets - perhaps one or two seasons behind and have frequent promotions so be on the lookout, both online and offline!

Best to shop for: Premium brand sneakers and attires.

3. aL-ikhsan

If you're a football or futsal junkie, this place will not be a stranger to you. Although the items at aL-ikhsan aren't as in-season compared to Sports Direct, you really can’t list out affordable sports store without mentioning aL-ikhsan. They offer affordable jerseys, footballs and running wear. If you're able to catch the sale season, you can definitely find some good deals!

Best to shop for: Off-season football/futsal shoes and jerseys.

4. Zalora

Zalora is definitely a familiar place for avid online shoppers. You could look for something for almost any style on their website, and this includes sportswear. The cool thing about Zalora is that, if you are subscribed to their newsletter, you could save a lot of money from their frequent sitewide discount. Browse for your favourite cool workout outfit, put it in your virtual cart and pray that they still have it when a promotion comes along. Shop worry-free as all their premium brands are authentic, compared to other mass e-commerce platforms where you have to be extra cautious as there are multiple independent sellers. With Zalora, your next fashionable discounted gym wear is just a few clicks away!

Best to shop for: Workout pants, sports bra and more.

*Tip: Wait for a discount code!

5. Cotton On Body

If you are looking for trendy yet affordable workout getup, then look no further than Cotton On! They are available pretty much every where; nationwide, so it's one of the more convenient places to scout for workout wear. I wouldn’t say they have the best quality and price out of all the choices available in the market but they do look quite modern for those who look for style in their gym wear. Plus, they even offer a good range of swimwear and sleeping wear. Be on the lookout for their sale season, because some items could go up to 50% off!

Best to shop for: Fashionable and stylish workout tops and bottoms.

6. Mis Claire

Special shoutout to local brand, Mis Claire for providing fashionable and affordable gym wear to plus size babes out there! Most premium brands and stores carry a limited range of sizes that do not cater to the plus size market. Even if you are fortunate enough to find one that fits, the price is either exorbitant or it does not look flattering at all. So if you are looking for a gym wear that fits and looks good on your curves, then Mis Claire Activewear is the way to go!

Best to shop for: Plus size workout attire.

Another local brand shout out that has stylish and comfortable gym wear! HERMS Co offers pretty much every girl's dream of owning a co-ord pastel gym wear set (combat sets) that would make you feel ten times more motivated to work out! Their leggings are also high-waisted and it's compression design helps to shape and define your curves. You can opt to buy the full set or mix and match the sports bra and leggings in different colours.

HERMS also offers a range of affordable swimwear sets priced at RM89.

Best to shop for: Matching co-ord sports bra and leggings sets.

*HERMS Co currently has a limited time RM10 off promo on their swimwear series. T&Cs apply.

That’s about it for my list of good places to get affordable gym wear. Time to get those sweats on!
