When training everyday, it’s important to feel fresh and comfortable every time you start a workout. For me that means wearing different kit for each type of workout. Also, add in that extra motivation bonus of a new pair of trainers and you know you’re hitting a good session!
This means constantly looking for new sports gear and at least enough to get you through the week without resorting to smelly bras from 2 days ago! And when you have an activewear obsession like I do, it’s difficult to buy enough without going massively over budget.
So when I found MandM Direct, I thought I’d share my ‘top budget picks’ with you guys. They sell clothes from so many top brands, including ELLE sport, Puma and New Balance, as well as casual clothes for everyday wear at reduced prices (always up to 75% off!). You can kit yourself head to toe and still have some money left over for your favourite gym class.
I picked out my top choices from the website for under £100 total, saving £157! That’s for 2 tops, 2 pairs of leggings, trainers and a jacket without breaking the bank.

These Puma shoes are my all time favourite to wear and are somewhere between comfy everyday shoes and training shoes. They look amazing and are even comfier – I have barely stopped wearing them since I got them (if you follow me on instagram you will know this)! If you’re looking for a shoe that will look equally stylish walking around London as in the gym, these are for you.
This cute matching kit from New Balance is the ultimate running outfit. It is cool and comfy, and the reflective panelling on the sides mean you’re extra-visible, even at night. I have done Barry’s Bootcamp in the leggings and they definitely hold their own in terms of keeping you dry and comfy throughout. If you’re a fan of Barry’s Bootcamp, you’ll know that that’s not easy!
This ELLE jacket will really come into its own now it is spring. It’s lightweight, with mesh panels for ventilation, so it’s perfect for those cool evening runs, or heading home after a hot gym session. The zip pockets are also ideal when travelling around at speed – the amount of time I spend thinking I’ve dropped things out of my pockets because they have no zips is ridiculous! Luckily with this jacket that’s not a problem.
I would definitely buy from MandM Direct again, especially considering the diversity and quality of clothes available – have a sift through their website and you’ll find everything you could need for most sports at up to 75% off which, when you’re an active wear addict like me, is invaluable.
