My Favorite Store for Cute, Affordable Workout Gear

It’s hard to travel and stay fit. Often times, I forget things and I have to make a mad dash to the closest store. Usually, it’s really hard to find what I need in a rush and on a budget.



Shopping at Target C9 Gear Womens Workout

After a few weeks in Florida on business, I came home and decided to hit up Target’s® BOGO sale for their C9 by Champion line with Whitney. We used our electronic Target® gift card courtesy of the PopSugar Ambassador program. We found awesome, cute, affordable workout gear.

Whitney purchased the Target® C9 by Champion Women’s Run Short with Knit Waistband. The bright color is perfect for the summer! Whitney was surprised how comfortable the shorts were. She paired them with a few items already in her workout wardrobe. She thought the inner pocket was a nice touch too.

Final for Target Review of CP

If you are looking to add a pop of color to your workout gear, the Target ® C9 tank collection has plenty of options. I purchased a layered sports run tank in solar flare. The tank has a built in bra and had a decent amount of boob coverage.

It’s great for running in the hot summer sun. If you are petite, the shirt might be bit long in the torso area. I purchased a large since I have big boobs but normally I would have gotten a medium if it were not for the built-in bra. I also paired the top with the Target® C9 by Champion® Visor Hat  in Black to keep my hair out my face as I worked out.


Target C9 Active Collection


Overall, I was surprised by the quality and selection of the C9 collection. Since I travel often, it’s nice to know I can head into my local Target ® store for the fitness gear I need. It’s a great collection for a workout such as a 5k but also live in. It’s a great line, which is designed for performance and comfort to suit both casual weekenders and elite athletes.


As an added bonus, check out this challenging shoulder workout. All you need is a pair of 5lb weights.
