Fitness Haul- Gap, Ron Jon!

Over the past week I have found lots of fitness gear for at least half the original prices! Let's see what I got! The first store I went to was Ron Jon Surf Shop in Ft. Lauderdale. I wasn't expecting to find any good deals but I did! As I was walking through the store I spotted some Vibram Five Fingers that were in the sale section. They had many different kinds of Vibram's to choose from but I ended up getting the speed style that have laces on the top. They felt the most comfortable to me.

Although, toe shoes look a little strange, I've always wanted to try "barefoot" shoes so I was very excited to see these for half price. I have worn them a couple of times already and have gotten a few compliments. They are super light weight and flexible and really do feel like you are barefoot. 

It is suggested to ease into these shoes so you do not injure yourself. These shoes do not have support and cushion like most sneakers. The first day I wore them I just walked at a fast past for an hour. After the hour was completed my toes felt like they were being forced to stay spread out in the shoe. I took one day off from wearing my toe shoes and then did a walking/jog interval workout completing a total of 3 miles. I had no pain and nothing felt weird or different after this workout. A few days later I ran a little over a mile. After this I was a little sore in my calfs. I haven't done another workout in my toe shoes yet but I am going to continue to slowly get used to these shoes. 

The next store I spotted inexpensive fitness gear at was Gap. All the sale items in the store had an additional 40 percent off. I ended up getting two tank tops.

This tank was under 5 dollars and is a really lightweight, cotton material. The next tank was a little under 6 bucks and was super flattering for many body types. 

This tank is loser on the bottom half and is a little on the longer side. This tank has an adjustable drawstring on the bottom so it the hem can be tighter on the body and the shirt can be made shorter. 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful 4th of July! Has anyone found any fitness finds lately?
