How much workout gear do I have? I certainly have more outfit options than I do for work. I've always been like that and frankly, I think I work in the wrong profession. I should've gone into the fitness industry because then I'd had a solid budget for that gear. I was the athlete in college who wore sweatpants and sweatshirts to class. If it was cold, I'd throw a jacket over the sweatshirt. The classrooms were chilly anyway, so the layers kept me warm.
It kind of carried over into the workforce, and I'm definitely one of those who looks for sales for work clothes but I won't hesitate to buy workout gear at full price. I automatically have ideas for Christmas and birthdays. There is even a whole side of my closet for my workout clothes, between the tank tops, shirt, sports bras, compression, and Running Skirts. It's bigger than what I have for work pants, shirts, and dresses.
In my defense, it's easier for me to find color and cuts in workout clothes than it is for work clothes. Workout gear doesn't seem to be affected by what's "in". Fashion drives me crazy.
I can keep the smaller gadgets in my dresser, but my calf stretcher, weights, and barbell are kept in the front closet, but not the foam rollers. I keep those out since I use them all the time. I try to keep things neat, but sometimes that's a lost cause.
