Sportchek Canada: TRX Home Kit Was $200 | Now $150 & Free Shipping

Sportchek Canada: TRX Home Kit Was $200 | Now $150 & Free Shipping

Want to take your workout to the next level? What about with TRX? While I’ve never tried it, I’ve heard from multiple friends that it is quite a workout with great results. You don’t need to head to the gym to do it, instead you can get the TRX home kit from Sportchek for only $149.99 with a regular price of $199.99.

If you are just starting to work out, going to the gym may feel very daunting. I remember when I first started, I was so weak and didn’t want to be embarrassed at the gym. While I now know that no one really cares what you do at the gym, that fear can be real for a lot of people. So, I worked out from home using DVDs and dumbbells until I felt comfortable enough to attend the gym. This TRX kit might do the same thing for you that it those DVDs did years ago. TRX is tough and you might not want to enter a class without knowing the basics that you can learn easily from home.

The kit includes:

  • Suspension Trainer
  • Door Anchor
  • Guide
  • Suspension Anchor
  • Door Placard
  • Wrist Band
  • Carry Bag
  • Instructional DVD

Another reason you might not be able to attend traditional TRX classes is that your gym doesn’t offer them. The gym I am at now does not. But, you could also be a new mom and have a baby or child who absolutely hates the daycare. This was me with my older children. I had to workout somewhere that they could see me all the time. I wish they had something like this when they were little that I could have done from home.

The reviews are great for this set:

This is a great piece of equipment for using at home. I live in a small apartment and the door mount works great. It gives a great workout without having to worry about really hurting yourself. It give one of the best workouts ive ever had and use it regularly.

I shopped around for this item and while I found it at less than the regular price, no other store beat the sale price. In fact, the two fitness stores that I found it at also had additional shipping fees and one didn’t have any in stock.

Here is a TRX video of the top 10 best TRX exercises just to get you in the mood:

Lug 18″ Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Posted by on February 13, 2015 at 9:45 AM

Lug 18 Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Staples.ca has a sweet little deal on the Lug 18” Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag today. This cute little bag was $106 but is now only $53. This item also includes free shipping. Here at Bargainmoose, we always check deals over and over before they go out. Our other blogger Eva, did not get the $53 sale price, although the rest of the team did. If you have troubles as well, let us know in the comments below!

Need a new bag to carry everything? Check out the Lug 18” Fitness and Overnight Bag. You can choose between a plum purple and a grass green colour at the sale price. I am digging the plum colour. I have more than one sweater in that deeper purple colour. The grass green is a nice bright spring colour, maybe I should mix it up a little more.

I think what strikes me most about this bag is how versatile it can be. They call it a fitness bag and from poking around it seems people are happy using that bag to go to the gym. This bag comes with a special pocket designed to hold your yoga mat. It also comes with a holder for your water bottle and even an extra pocket designed just for your rings. I always try to take my rings off before I head into the pool to protect them from the chlorine, so I love this feature.

This Lug bag has lots of pockets and room to store several changes of clothes. As suggested, it would be a handy little weekend bag for a getaway with all that extra room. The bag is also a big enough size that it can be used as a diaper bag. It has lots of pockets, a big luggage handle strap and room for your water bottle. Sounds like the perfect diaper bag to me. Since the bag is particularly roomy, it might be a nice choice if you have supplies for multiple kids to tote.

Here is what I found when I checked out prices on this bag around the web.

You can see from the prices at the competitors that this bag is a steal today at Staples.ca. Save yourself a few bucks and grab this multi-use Lug bag now.

I could not find anyone on a well-known website that had reviewed this bag in Canada, so I popped over to Amazon in the US. Many people seem to be talking about this bag over the border. It has 25 reviews and an average rating of four and a half stars out of five. Here is one happy reviewer explaining what they like about this Lug bag.

Lug 18 Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Many of the items in the Staples Deals Centre are saying you have six or four days left to purchase the item. This Lug bag does not have that caveat. I suspect once the stock runs out of these bags, they are gone. If you like the bag, I would get it now while the deal is still on. Free shipping also comes with this deal.

Future Shop: Gaiam Premium Hibiscus Yoga Kit Was $45 | Now $22.99 & FS on $25 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 20, 2015 at 1:49 PM

Future Shop: Gaiam Premium Hibiscus Yoga Kit Was $45 | Now $22.99 & FS on $25 (EXPIRED)

Future Shop finally fixed their deal of the day so the discount is actually showing. Today only, purchase the Gaiam Premium Hibiscus Yoga Kit on sale from $44.99 down to $22.99.

I price compared this yoga mat kit with other retailers to make sure it was the best price. Here is what the competitors are charging for the exact same kit.

  • $39.99 @ Gaiam Canada
  • $44.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $44.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $38.24 @ London Drugs Canada

Now, it is important to note that this is an entire kit, not just the mat itself. I found the mat as a stand-alone product for as low as $28, but that is not a fair comparison to this kit. The kit includes the three workout DVDs, a yoga mat sling with adjustable closure strap, and the premium yoga mat.

The three full-length Yoga DVDs feature Rodney Yee for a total of 245 minutes. These are the three DVDs you will receive:

  • Ultimate Power Yoga (95 minutes)
  • A.M. Yoga for Your Week (120 minutes)
  • Abs Yoga for Beginners (30 minutes)

Your yoga mat is green with little white hibiscus flowers upon it. It is considered premium as the mat is thicker (5 mm) than most yoga mats are. This saves your knees and makes it more comfortable for your daily workout. The mat also has a textured, cushioned surface that helps you keep your grip and get into the perfect positions. This Gaiam yoga mat is latex free and free of the six most harmful phthalates. As someone who has a latex sensitivity, I appreciate latex free products.

I think this kit is a great way to start the New Year. I am sure many of us have weight loss goals this year, and yoga is beneficial for weight loss, flexibility, mental health, and more. This kit will give you everything you need to begin a frequent yoga workout in your own home.

In some areas, you may be able to reserve in store to avoid shipping costs. Shipping is free on orders of $25 or more so you may want to throw in something like this Gaiam: Fit Body Yoga Ft. Gwen Lawrerence for just $4.99 to bring your cart above $25.

50% Off Lululemon Swift Headband – Now $7 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 13, 2015 at 5:33 PM

50% Off Lululemon Swift Headband   Now $7 & Free Shipping

The Swift Headband just landed in the ‘We Made Too Much’ section at Lululemon. Originally $14, pick up the Swift Headband in a multitude of colours for just $7 with free shipping.

This item must have just hit the sale section at Lululemon as all band colours are still in stock. Choose from:

  • space dye heathered split pea (yellow)
  • space dye heathered pretty purple
  • space dye heathered alberta lake
  • heathered ultra violet/black
  • heathered pigment blue

The last picture of each picture series gives you a really good close up shot of the band so you can truly see what each colour looks like. I think my favourite is the Alberta lake colour followed by the split pea. I could always purchase both and even combine them.

According to Lululemon, the headbands are made of stretch Silverescent fabric to keep the fabric smelling fresh even after it has absorbed your sweat from countless runs. The moisture-wicking fabric will pull sweat away from your head and keep it from running down your face (and into your eyes).

Now, these headbands have a silicone design on the inside to keep the headband in place. However, I would say half of the reviews complain about the headband slipping off or not staying where it is put. Others do say that it stays in place, so it appears you need just the right size of head for this to work out. Here are two opposing reviews:

This headband is very cute, stylish, and comes in a great selection of colors, however, it does not stay on your head. I constantly have to take it off and put it on again every time i use it. I guess this would be okay for yoga, but for running and high impact activities, it does not work well.

and…

I purchased this headband to wear on my long runs. This headband stays put the entire time and when I take it off it is soaked with all the sweat it has captured and prevented from rolling down my face during my run.. Highly recommend this headband!

This constant slippage problem might just be why the headband has landed in the sale section. As per usual, all items in the sale section are final sale. As you would be buying this with full knowledge of the slippage issue, I doubt they would refund your money if it slips off your head.

MEC: 75% Off Free Spirit Sport Top – Now $9

Posted by on January 12, 2015 at 12:42 PM

MEC: 75% Off Free Spirit Sport Top   Now $9

Mountain Equipment Co-op has an amazing clearance section with up to 75% off fitness and athletic clothing, accessories, gear, and more. I spotted this women’s MEC Free Spirit Sport Top on sale from $36 down to just $9.

This athletic top features a body fit, which is tight, with no room to spare. The Free Spirit top is made of a soft jersey knit polyester and LYCRA blend with a double layer in the chest area for modesty and additional support. There is a light support built-in shelf bra with removable pads. The shirt features my favourite back style: the crossover racer-back.

You can choose from pink punch (available in sizes large and extra-large) or dusty aqua (available in sizes medium, large, and extra-large).

Now, out of three reviews, a couple mention that their usual size top was a bit larger than they would have liked. Therefore, if you enjoy a snug fit as the body fit is supposed to give, you may want to size down. Here is one such review:

I bought this top in clearance and have to say that I am very happy with my purchase. I had to go a size down as it does fit to body and was a bit large in my regular size. It is light weight and worked well on my bike ride and in my yoga session.

If this shirt is not available in your size, I have a few other recommendations from the sale. The MEC Hera Top is an excellent alternative and comes in all sizes except extra-small. Originally $36, the top is now on sale for $10. This top is available in pink punch and has a racer back style (teardrop shaped) and a built in bra that is best for A or B cups.

I also recommend the MEC Vitality Short‑Sleeved Tee for only a few dollars more. Originally $42, the shirt is on sale for $15. There are many sizes available and two different colours as well.

No shirt is complete without a bottom so check out the MEC Terra Nova Skirt that was $46 and is now only $15. There are many sizes still available in both colour options.

The clearance section at MEC is loaded with clearance deals on athletic wear right now so browse around for other great deals. Receive free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Order under $50 cost $6.50 to ship.

Men’s Jackets Just $69 with Free Shipping @ Lululemon

Posted by on January 11, 2015 at 6:33 PM

Mens Jackets Just $69 with Free Shipping @ Lululemon

Lululemon has made too many again and two men’s Lululemon athletic jackets are on sale. The Post Gravity Jacket was $128 and is now on sale for $69. Even better, the Revolution 1/2 Zip jacket was $138, and is now on sale for $69 as well.

Both tops are final sale, as is to be expected when the discount is so high. Sizes small and medium are available in both jackets but the others sizes are sadly out of stock.

Now, these jackets are very different. The Post Gravity top is lightweight for comfort, and features Moisture-wicking, four-way stretch fabric. This jacket is perfect for heading to the gym, going for a walk, heading out for a bike ride, playing with the kids, or running out for a few errands. The two-way zip allows you to zip up for full warmth or partially zip to match your comfort level. Flat seams also keep you comfortable. I think the addition of thumb holes as they are probably my favourite thing on any jacket. This jacket also has three secure pockets for your valuables. As one guy said:

I purchased this jacket when they sold it in Black Camouflage and I cannot say anything bad about the jacket. It moves with your body and the thumb holes are an amazing bonus for the jacket. It washes very easily and still looks like new!

Now, the Revolution 1/2 zip is a warm pullover made of Polartec Power Stretch Pro fabric. This gives you a warm cozy sweater feel without a lot of extra weight or bulk. There is a zippered pocket for your essentials, and a zipper at the bottom of the pullover for adjusting. Unlike the Post Gravity top, this top has reflective strips built into it that help keep you visible in low light situations. You can also enjoy thumb holes in this pullover as well. Do note that the Revolution 1/2 Zip top appears to run a bit short according to comments.

I think these are both great buys from the men’s section at Lululemon. My third choice, if i had to make one, would be the Revolution Crew that is on sale from $128 down to $79. It is in stock in a size medium.

Receive free shipping on all orders from Lululemon Canada.

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

If like many, one of your new year resolution was to get in shape and hit the gym, then it’s possible that you may have already gotten discouraged but it’s important to keep at it! Gyms are packed at this time of year and if those make you nervous anyways, then make your own fitness equipment for a fraction of the cost to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

1. Milk Dumbbottles

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

Ever heard of using common household items to work out? The milk dumb bottle DIY by Fitness Training At Home builds on that idea, making it even better. Instead of having milk or whatever other contents potentially go bad, fill the jugs instead with sand, concrete and rocks and voila — your very own “dumbbells”!

2. Basketball Kettleball

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

Kettle balls have an average cost of $40, although some are as cheap as $20 and others much pricier than both these price points. If you have an old basketball or any rubber ball lying around, then make your own kettle ball as per these Instructables. The best part about making your own is that you can control how much you want them to weight and perhaps even make several ones at different weights — all for way cheaper than store-bought ones!

3. Bulgarian Bag

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

For a total body work out, then a Bulgarian bag is sure to provide the challenge you need. Follow the instructions on 15 Minutes Workout‘s site to make your very own from a car inner tube, sand or any other filler, zip ties and duct tape. Then hit YouTube for Bulgarian bag exercises that you can do from the comfort of your own home.

4. Sand Bag

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

Do you have an old gym bag lying around? Put it to good use by turning it into a sandbag. Interestingly, this DIY from Running To The Kitchen actually utilizes rice instead of sand but make sure to follow their advice to get the cheapest rice you can from an Asian supermarket — after all, you will be lifting and not eating it!

5. Punching Bag

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

Here’s a DIY fitness idea that I would have never thought possible: make your own homemade punching bag for under $20 — it could even be as cheap as $5! According to Living Apex, all you need is a shell, sewing capabilities, filler (dirt will suffice) and a hook to hang it. The cost of your bag will depend on the materials you get but overall, this is a very cheap alternative to getting one in-stores!

6. Balance Bars

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

This one requires some brain power to assemble but luckily, Tom Harvey Training already figured out all of the required PVC pipe lengths and even put together a handy diagram on how to assemble the pieces. Once complete, you will have your very own dip station.

7. Plyo Boxes

7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

Workout DVDs and even cardio videos on YouTube often call for stepping stools but instead of buying one, you can just as easily make one and save money all at the same time. Check out Build Your Dream Body for instructions on how to make his and her plyo boxes for working out at home. I wouldn’t necessarily advice bringing this plyo box to your next fitness class though. 7 DIY Fitness Equipment Ideas

ItFit Canada Promo Code: 25% Off Entire Store

Posted by on January 7, 2015 at 10:27 AM

ItFit Canada Promo Code: 25% Off Entire Store

For all of us out there who have fitness as one of our new year’s resolutions, I found a very cute Canadian store called itFit and they’ve got a coupon code for 25% off.

Click here to shop @ Itfit.ca now

  • Coupon Code: FBOOK
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

Itfit bands are headbands made of spandex/lycra that stay elastic and stay on your head while you exercise. They are made right in Toronto, so if shopping local is also a New Year’s resolution, you’ve got two down right there. Itfit also sells touch gloves, which are great for cold days running or walking when you absolutely need to text or change the song and you don’t want to take off your gloves.

What’s also cool about them is that they have a custom fit based on your head measurements. This makes total sense as some of us have fairly small heads and some of us have extra large heads. Even better, they guarantee that these headbands will not slip or pop off or you get your money back. This makes me super happy! If anyone knew how much money I’ve spent on headbands that won’t stay on, even the illustrious Lululemon ones, they’d have a stroke.

I don’t know what it is about my head or maybe it is that I have very fine hair, but I can not get a headband to stay on my head. Since I now have bangs, this drives me crazy as my forehead gets very sweaty and breaks out when I keep my bangs down during a workout.

There are lots of different styles and colours available. My favourite is the groovy, but I also like the orange blossoms. Regularly $15 for the pattern styles and $14 for the solid, ItFit also has a deal on right now where if you buy two, you get one free. On top of this, you can enter the promo code to get 25% off. This means if you got three of the patterned styles, you’d pay only $22.50, instead of $45. You’ll also get free shipping as you get that perk on orders over $20.

BodyBuilding.com: 5LB Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Was $55 | Now $23 *Very Hot*

Posted by on January 7, 2015 at 10:09 AM

BodyBuilding.com: 5LB Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Was $55 | Now $23 *Very Hot*

Feeling like you need a little more protein in your diet? Adding protein powder to smoothies is one of the easiest ways to add this essential nutrient to your diet. Right now, Bodybuilding.com has a phenomenal deal on the 5lb bottle of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% whey powder in the natural vanilla. Regularly $54.96, it is on sale for $32.01. Once you add it to your cart, it will discount by another 20% for all gold standard 100% whey, down to $25.61. Then, add the coupon code Rmnbbcm10 (now expired but there are other potential coupon codes here) to get an even further discount and bring your total down to $23.05.

Just to let you know how great of a deal this is, I shopped around to see what other stores sold this exact brand of whey powder for. Here it is on sale at Amazon for $80.97! And here it is at SVN Canada also on sale for $79.95. Finally, here it is on sale at Supplements Canada for $79.99.

Now, you may know that Bodybuilding.com is a U.S. site, but all prices are in Canadian dollars. Also, the shipping is not light, but it includes all duties and this deal is still far better than buying it on any of those Canadian sites I mentioned. For one bottle of protein powder, you’ll pay $9.37 in shipping and duties, which I think is very reasonable.

If you use protein powder on a regular basis, you might be smart to stock up, although I’d think about how much you actually need as this stuff does expire. Don’t buy 20 bottles for the heck of it and hope to use then within the year, unless you actually will.

While the 5lb gold standard bottle was the best deal I found in terms of prices elsewhere, all of the gold standard 100% whey bottles in both 5 and 2lbs sizes are an extra 20% off and you can use that coupon to even further your discount. You might want to play around with the ones you like and see what sort of discount you get. Let me know in the comments below what you ordered!

Costco: Omron Fat Loss Monitor Was $30 | Now $23 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 6, 2015 at 6:30 PM

Costco: Omron Fat Loss Monitor Was $30 | Now $23 & Free Shipping

 

The top resolution of every New Year is to get in shape and lose weight. Well, my New Year’s resolution is a bit different: it is to not have weight loss as a resolution next year. That means I have some work to do! This Omrom Fat loss Monitor is a great little device to help me keep on track. Originally $29.99, the Omrom monitor is on sale for $22.99 with free shipping.

When I price compared this unit with other stores, my research revealed that many companies had this monitor on sale. London Drugs lists the Omron for $39.99 retail, and they have it on sale for $24.99 in store only. Well.ca has the same Omron Fat Loss Monitor, which they call a Body Fat Analyzer, priced at $34.99. Only Amazon.ca matches Costco’s price at $22.99 (was $36.40) but you are below Amazon’s free shipping minimum. The best deal is still through Costco.

This device measures your body fat percentage and body mass. You may wonder why you would want this device rather than a scale. Well, a scale can only measure weight. Muscle, fat, bone, vitals, etc. are all weight. When you lose weight, you want to lose fat – not muscle. Body fat is a better indicator of overall health than your weight. Drop your fixation with the scale and embrace a healthier you.

The machine accommodates up to nine personal profiles for your entire family (and a few friends) to use the device. In addition, an athletic mode will provide results that are more accurate for athletes. The reviews I have read on this device are overwhelmingly positive:

Does what it says. I’m finding it’s on par with callipers as far as accuracy goes. Follow the instructions and be mindful of your daily fluctuations in hydration. This tool will give you a good idea whether or not you’re on the right path.

and…

I have used this product in the past prior to making the purchase. It provides me with reliable data when accessing my clients. I must say that the data is not as accurate as the floor models that requires a bare feet reading with an electronic read-out. Nevertheless, I am pleased with my purchase.

This is the perfect little device if you are working on a healthier you this coming year.

Swim-Shop: Hydro-Fit Buoyancy & Resistance Cuffs Were $80 | Now $32

Posted by on January 6, 2015 at 4:30 PM

Swim Shop: Hydro Fit Buoyancy & Resistance Cuffs Were $80 | Now $32

Hello swimmers and aquasize lovers! These Hydro-Fit Buoyancy and Resistance Cuffs were originally $80, and are now on sale for $32 at Swim-Shop Canada.

When it comes to swim gear, price comparisons are a bit difficult as there are few online Canadian shops that sell true athletic swim gear. I had to price compare this set in the USA instead. Keep in mind that this is the price at USA swim retailers, is in US currency, and would not include shipping or duty:

  • $50.55 US @ Aquagear.com
  • $54.95 US @ Hydrofit.com

I could only find them at a few online retailers, but Swim Shop’s price was the best compared to anywhere else. These Hydro cuffs are a multi-use tool for swimming and aquasize. You can use them on your ankles, on your arms, or join them together to put around your torso. They both help keep you afloat in the water and offer added resistance (through drag and weight) so your body is forced to harder during your swimming or workout. Both on amazon.com and through some of the US websites I found very good reviews:

These are a GREAT way to get a good workout in the pool. You can jog, dance, or even do arobics with these “water booties”. They are well built. I am in my second season swimming 3/4 days a week with them. They offer variety from lap swimming and you don’t even have to get your hair wet!

and…

Honestly I think these cuffs are the most clever tool ever created for any aqua fitness work out. Not only do the cuffs give your variety on how you can use them, they are user-friendly and easy to change out to use one of 4 ways, and because they’re so versatile, it cuts down on having to carry bulky equipment to the pool. Brilliant!

You will, of course, need to pay for shipping on these and they are bulky so that will not be cheap (my estimate to Vancouver Island was $18). Shipping costs depend upon where you live. You can add on other stuff from the sale (granted it is not too big or heavy) to spread the shipping charge out over multiple items. I suggest the Cressi Light – Swim Fins that were $38 and are now $15.20, the TYR Mentor Hand Paddles that were $34 and are now $13.60, and TYR Technoflex Vision goggles that were $17 and are now $6.80. There are so many great sale items at Swim-Shop that I could get lost on their website for hours.

Gaiam Canada: Aluminum Water Bottles Were $13 | Now $5

Posted by on January 6, 2015 at 1:48 PM

Gaiam Canada: Aluminum Water Bottles Were $13 | Now $5

While I don’t have any traditional New Year’s resolutions, I have promised myself that I would do more yoga on a regular basis. I have a back that is pain when I don’t stretch it out and yoga helps immensely. Gaiam is a great place to buy yoga accessories, but while perusing their site, I found that they have water aluminum water bottles on sale for $6.49, regularly $12.99. Add the coupon code SeasonOfGiving and you’ll get another 20% off, bringing all of the on sale 750ML aluminum water bottles down to $5.19.

I’m definitely stocking up on these water bottles while I have the chance, both for myself and for the rest of my family. Over the break, I cleaned out my cupboards and found a total of 15 aluminum water bottles and 10 lids. Problem was that 8 of the lids didn’t even match the 15 water bottles I have. How does this happen? It truly boggles my mind. It upsets me because aluminum water bottles are not cheap, so I’m happy that I have a chance to once again stock up and not spend a fortune.

My favourites for me:

For my husband:

For my boys:

While I actually didn’t realize that aluminum and stainless steel were that different, I decided to research it since stainless steel is more expensive, and Gaiam also has these bottles on sale. This article from Bulletin Bottle gives you more information so you can make the choice for your family. While I like the durability of stainless steel, with Christmas credit card bills due, the budget is also on my mind. Both options are much better than plastic, I believe, so I’m good to get the ones that are only $5!

But, if you are interested in stainless steel, like this spirals bottle, instead of paying the regular price of $21.99, it is on sale for $14.99 and you’ll pay $11.99 after coupon.

The coupon I mentioned above is good for any product on site, not just the water bottles, so feel free to use in on some of the bestsellers and other cool products they’ve got to help you meet your fitness goals.

Shipping is free on an order of $75 or more, so you might want to fill up your cart and save yourself those fees. If you can’t, shipping for each bottle is around $3 for me, which still makes the deal hot considering the regular price is $13 and you’ll get the bottle for $8.

Lole Canada: Authentic Dress Was $90 | Now $54

Posted by on January 6, 2015 at 9:39 AM

Lole Canada: Authentic Dress Was $90 | Now $54

With fitness on the brain, you may want some new duds to wear to the gym. While so many women (and men) covet Lululemon, Lole is a less expensive alternative with some very fashionable looks. The Authentic dress is a sporty dress with four-way stretch, moisture-wicking materials and reflective details that was meant to be seen on the trails. Regularly $90, it is now only $54.

This looks like a classic tennis dress, but I think it would also be great for running. It is super cute with a racer back with a braid detailing. The integrated bra is good for medium impact, so if you wanted to use it for running, you might need another bra underneath for the most protection.

It comes in five colour choices and it looks like most sizes are available for each colour: blue, grey, black, red and white.

This dress is also classy enough that you won’t just use it for working out. Imagine wearing it for a walk in the park, to a BBQ this summer or just doing errands. It has UPF 50+ for those long days in the sun we are already dreaming of this cold day in January.

If that dress doesn’t do it for you, Lole has a wide selection available in their clearance department.

These “sleek and supportive” balance shorts were $50 and now $30. Great for cold winters in the gym and hot summers outside of it.

I’m loving this twist tank top as the ruching at the waist gives the impression of a flatter stomach – something I’d love to have! I like the high neck in the front as I have an ample chest and low cuts just look wrong on me at the gym. But, it does have a lower back, which means it can still be sexy. The iPod pocket at the back is exactly what I need as well! This top was $48, now $28.80.

Costco Canada: JumpSport Fitness Trampoline – $275 (Save $75)

Costco Canada: JumpSport Fitness Trampoline   $275 (Save $75)

*BUMP! This trampoline is again on sale, this time $5 cheaper, so take advantage while you can!* I love trampolines! When I was a kid, it was like my life goal to have a trampoline in my backyard but renting an apartment has never been conducive to that dream. However, I could always get one for inside. Costco Canada is selling the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline 350i for only $274.99, saving you $75.

I did a little price comparing: little because there are not a lot of places in Canada that offer this adorable little trampoline. A secondary retailer on Amazon.ca is selling the exact model for $540.99 + $12.40 shipping (ouch!). More reasonably priced is the actual manufacturer. JumpSport themselves sells the Fitness Trampoline 350 for $349.99.

The trampoline measures 32.5″ jumping surface and can hold up to 250 lbs. It has a 16 gauge steel frame and comes with a handle bar for a greater variety of exercises. Included in your kit is 4-in-1 workout DVD to help you utilize your new trampoline to its fullest.

I am also sure that when you are not shedding some extra pounds on it, your kids will love to just bounce away to their little heart’s content. So it really is a workout machine and a toy all in one.

Shipping and handling charges are included in the cost.

Sportchek Canada: Nike Legend 2.0 Capri Tights Were $80 | Now Only $48 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Sportchek Canada: Nike Legend 2.0 Capri Tights Were $80 | Now Only $48 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

If you are looking for a gift idea for your wife or friend who is a fitness buff (or just likes performance clothing), Sportchek has the Nike Legend 2.0 capri tights on sale for only $47.99, with a regular price of $79.99. Because today is also No Minimum Monday, these tights will also ship for free with coupon code MOOSESC.

I really love a good capri tight for working our or running. They usually also look great enough to wear to do errands as well. Nike is a well-known brand, so you know you are getting quality tights. The 2.0 is an improvement from their original version. They reduced the waistband and increased the rise so you stay covered when bending and stretching. I have to say, that is super important, as my pet peeve is having to adjust my clothing while working out! When the waistband rolls down when I’m in front forward bend, it takes away that zen yoga feeling.

You also want to look good while exercising, so the v-shaped seam at the waist enhances all your curves, while distracting from the curves you want to hide. It has spandex in the fabric to give you a bit of a stretch on the days you need it.

It has a little back pocket to carry what you need while out for a run as well. You’ll also stay dry with sweat-wicking material actually made from recycled plastic bottles.

There are a few colours available including teal, pink and black.

I shopped around for price comparisons on these tights, and while they weren’t readily available in Canada, the few places I found them in both Canada and the U.S. sold them for around $80 (plus whatever shipping that store charged).

You can shop around for whatever else you might like at Sportchek, since this is No Minimum Monday, everything ships for free.
