Get Ready to Get Active this Spring!

At the first sign of warm spring air, many of us are racing to the door! Blue skies, fresh air, and sunshine are great motivators to get outside and get moving.

If you’re ready to leave the dull days of winter behind you and get active, your first stop is to visit a Goodwill thrift store!

Get Motivated

Whether it’s a regular walk, bicycle ride, or trip to the gym, you’re going to need some motivation to get started. It sounds silly, but the right workout gear can actually spark excitement about your new routine!

You don’t need to spend a lot of money on activewear, which can easily bust your budget. Goodwill has everything you need for a fraction of the price! From tank tops and shorts to leggings, zip-ups, hats, and even shoes, thrifting activewear is the smart way to give yourself a little mental kick-start. When you look like an athlete, you just might work out like an athlete!

What’s Trending

Athletic wear popularity has grown in recent years, and the pandemic helped fuel a more casually dressed society. That’s good news if you’re looking to add athleisure pieces to your wardrobe. These days you can wear athletic clothing for nearly any occasion – running errands, meeting a friend for lunch, or even working from home. No workout required!

Check Goodwill’s aisles for trending pieces such as flared yoga pants, athletic bodysuits and rompers, and oversized pullovers and hoodies. Also popular right now are bold elements such as cut-outs, color blocking, and asymmetrical design. Remember, even if you want to keep up with trends, athleisure is all about comfort, so think about how each piece feels when you’re shopping.
