Sorry if this sounds a weird question but I am not originally from US so I don't have much ideas of where can I buy some cheap active wear. I started working out few weeks back and just have about 3 pairs of good active wear to wear in gym. Since I am planning to work-out 5-6 days a week, I think I would need some more pairs of active wear.

Which are the good places to buy little cheap active wear. I have some extra tops, but looking for bottoms. Mostly capris or pants. I checked out walmart, jcpenney, kohls and couple of other stores. Everything was about $10+ per piece.

Can I get it any cheaper anywhere?

Target sells activewear, but I doubt it would cost less than anything at Walmart. You would probably be better off spending a little more for two pair, than less for 4.

Okay. I looked online at Target, but it's almost same as Walmart. I was just trying to collect more pairs so I don't have to wash them everyday. I can wash it once a week. With less pairs I will have to wash it everyday or every other day to use it again within the same week.

You can try stopping by the stores and look for their clearance racks in the active wear sections. Often they'll have a selection of pants/capris marked down cheap and these deals sometimes aren't online.

Forever 21 also has a fitness line, but I have no clue how quickly their clothes fall apart in the wash: http://www.forever21.com/Product/Cat...vewear_bottoms

I don't know anyone that wears clean workout clothing every day. Do you really need more than 3 or 4 tops/bottoms?

You aren't going to find much cheaper than the $10 per item.

I agree. And you don't really want to buy a cheap one anyway because it won't last as long, especially if you're doing high intensity exercises.

Agreed. I buy my workout stuff at Academy. I exercise hard, and my workout shorts and tops were around $8-$10 each. But I like buying them there because their workout clothes last FOREVER (years). BCG and Magellan are inexpensive long lasting brands.

I buy mine from Kohl's when they have a 30% sale, which is once per month, and I only buy Fila Sport.
