The will to get active comes down to a number of things, but I think we can all agree that if you feel good in your workout clothes, you're far more likely to get your sweat on.

With all the hubbub surrounding overpriced gym gear and whether it's really worth it, we thought we'd scour the stores (both online and off) to find workout clothes that won't break the budget.

From tights that won't give up the ghost after one pavement pound, to sports bras that actually provide support - we've pinpointed the pieces that will keep you comfy while you get active.

We haven't touched on shoes because of the personal nature of footwear, but we recommend getting expert advice to ensure correct fit and support.
