Workout apparel can get pretty pricey. And with so many different brands and cool designs out there, it's hard to resist adding new items to your (increasingly expensive) online cart. But finding the best health and fitness sales is a great way to save some cash — and Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to start.


Check out our top picks by store to take advantage of Labor Day sales and stock up on tops, bottoms, sports bras and shoes. We've got you covered.

Video of the Day

Prices are subject to change, as some companies will not update their prices until Labor Day on September 4. We’ll update this article regularly as more information becomes available.

A Quick Language Note

We make deliberate choices about the language we use when it comes to gender. While more brands now carry gender-neutral workout clothes, you’ll still typically see clothing brands market their products to men or women.

The main difference between most women's and men's clothing is the fit: Men's versions tend to be longer in length and roomier, and women's versions tend to be shorter in length and tighter. However, fabrics, quality and comfort should be the same between gender-labeled pairs. We encourage everyone to purchase the products that feel right for them.
