TGIF Shopping: Get In (Workout) Gear For Under $50 With Xersion’s

Looking to revamp your gym get-up? Look no further. Xersion, available only at J.C. Penney, is here to help make you look as good as you feel during, before, or after a swole sesh.

Whether it’s compression gear to work out in or comfortable sweats to lounge around in while you finish binging Making a Murderer, Xersion offers a range of items to pack in your gym bag.

“We pride the brand on all of its attributes; performance, fashion and value,” says Victor Brockwell, Men’s Divisional Trend Manager, JCPenney.

Compression gear is great in two senses. For one, it hugs your body, keeping you warm for outdoor workouts, like running, or simply on your commute to and from the gym. Secondly, they cause increased blood circulation, which many feel can lead to improved endurance and overall physical performance.

Xersion performance pieces include cold gear shirts, compression shorts and pants, compression muscle and short-sleeve shirts and layering pieces like the packable puffer vest.

“To round out what to pack in your gym bag, there are cotton-rich fleece hoodies, polar fleece jackets and cargo jogger pants,” explains Brockwell. “These garments can be what you wear leaving the gym or even for weekend activities. It’s just as important to have casual and comfortable pieces as it is to have functional fitness items.”

All of the brand’s current winter styles are available for under $50. That includes compression gear, puffer vests, tech fleece zip-ups, cotton-rich fleece hoodies, polar fleece jackets and cargo jogger pants, and more.

So does Brockwell have a favorite of the bunch? “I’m love the short sleeve pull over training hoodie; perfect for the gym or a lazy Sunday.

The Citizen Eco-Drive Weekender Brycen Chronograph Watch -- try saying that three times fast -- is sleek, attractive, and will be available for a crazy good price on July 16 and July 17. Instead of $425, it will be only $170, saving you a whopping $255. You're probably wondering why we're sharing it early. Well, that's because it's an invitation-only Prime deal. What does that mean? You have to request an invite on the store page, and on the appropriate dates, you'll receive an email with an option to buy. If you like what you see, request that invite because not everyone will get one.

The deal in question will be available for a limited time, though we won't know how long until Amazon starts sending out the exclusive invites. You must be an active Prime Member to take advantage of this offer, so keep that in mind.
