Budget Gym Kit That Looks Way More Expensive Than It Really Is

Getting yourself back in the gym in January can be expensive. From the cheap membership deals that turn out to be not so cheap, to the crisps you have to buy midway through the afternoon because you're starving from your morning workout, every penny adds up.

The area where you're liable to spend most money, though, is gym kit. Back in the day, people were more than happy to wear their scrubby old T-shirt and a holey pair of tracksuit bottoms for a run on the treadmill. Now, everyone seems to be clad in high-end designer gym gear, which is weird, because all you're going to do is sweat all over it.

With the fitness revolution in full swing though, there are now plenty of places that do stylish leggings, bras and workout tops for far less than you'd expect. Click through for our best picks under £20.
