We've been big fans of TJ Maxx for a long time now, but we were reminded recently of just how awesome their deals are for exercise clothing and some exercise equipment when we found yoga mats for about $12 and a couple of 8-pound free weights for $16.

This past week we bought a pair of capri pants for $29.99 that were uncannily like an $80+ pair we got at Lululemon a few years ago.

A $16.99 tank was a direct copy of a Lululemon style from last season.

We also saw two-bottle hydration belts from CamelBak for $24.99 (great for long runs, hikes and other times when you're exercising for a longer period of time and away from a readily accessible water source). We've seen Nike, Under Armour, Marika, Columbia, Patagonia, Beyond Yoga, New Balance, and most other major fitness/sports brands at TJ Maxx, for both women and men.

TJ Maxx also recently launched a website that has an Active section (currently just for women). You can also earn rewards--like a $10 voucher you can spend on a future purchase (the chain is one of the few that makes it easy to use the rewards like real money instead of "points" that don't add up to much) if you get a TJ Maxx credit card.

 

What's your favorite place to get deals on exercise clothing and equipment?
