A friend told me there’s a Gaiam Outlet store north of Cincinnati in West Chester. They have sales every couple of weekends on yoga mats and bricks, medicine balls, DVDs, weights, Pilates equipment, clothing and more.
I was excited because while their stuff is available at Target, some of it seems pricey. Call me cheap, but I don’t like to pay full price for workout stuff.
I picked up everything in this photo for less than $20, which is the original price of those ankle weights. I’m not sure how much TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Home Goods charge, but not $20 (although the selection is hit or miss). They had Jillian’s Body Revolution and it was 70% off, but I didn’t know the original price (I’d guess somewhere between $99 and $119).
The resistance band might go to work so when I get a case of ants in the pants, I can use it. I finally have a pump and can use my ball to do my fave tuck > roll > pushups in the privacy of my home without worry about where my shirt is in the process (creeping toward my neck). Not that I think anyone is probably looking, but then getting off the ball is also an act of grace.
Items you might at 70% off retail price at Cincinnati’s Gaiam Outlet:
Organic cotton sheets, flannel pillowcases and comforters (wool and organic cotton)
Organic cotton terry robes, tops and dresses
