Forever 21 Gym Wear Haul

The last few months have been so crazy for me, with Christmas, moving to London, starting a new job and trying to house hunt - and the gym got pushed back in my list of priorities! Finally it is all calming down a bit and the last couple of weeks I have been getting back into the gym and my fitness routine which I'm pleased about. I have recently joined a new gym which is right outside my office (no excuses now) and I thought it was only right to purchase some new pieces to go with my new membership. 
So, on the weekend I went to Westfield's in search of  these new gym pieces. I looked in all the usual sportswear shops and although there was some lovely items from Nike, Adidas and other brands I just can't justify those high price tags. I love the gym and sportswear but it's just not something I'm willing to fork out lots of money for at the moment. To be honest I'd rather a new item of makeup! (I seriously have a problem).

I actually went into Forever 21 just for a browse and didn't knowing they had such a large selection of sportswear! When I saw the amount they had on offer - and not to mention their incredibly reasonable prices I was in heaven. I didn't know where to start and ended up taking about ten items in the changing rooms and wanting them all. I somehow managed to get it down to four items which I loved, two tops and two bottoms. 

Leggings - £14
First I picked up these grey patterned leggings and as soon as I saw them I knew I would have to buy them. Until now I only have black gym leggings and I really fancied a change and something more exciting. Patterned gym wear seems to be everywhere at the moment and these are definitely on trend. They are so reasonably priced at £14 and the quality is great as well. 
Shorts - £6
I'm not usually one for wearing tight fitting shorts in the gym, but recently I've been noticing the gym is really hot and I think it might actually be nicer to wear some shorts instead of leggings all the time. I also thought it would nice to have a pair of sports shorts for when the weather is nicer and warmer (hopefully) to go for outdoor runs. When I saw these I thought they are perfect as they are a bit longer so come further down the leg - and at £6 what a bargain!
Top - £12
I really liked the material of this black vest, it is so lightweight and floaty and I think it will sit perfecting on top of a sports bra. I also like the fact it's black as it will go with most things and I thought it would be great with my new patterned leggings and shorts.
Top - £12
The final piece I picked up was this pink gym vest. This is different to the black one as it is quite tight fitting, a thicker material and has a built in sports bra. The quality of this top is honestly amazing, and although I will probably still wear a sports bra underneath just for extra support, you probably don't need to if you don't want to as it provides good support and padding on it's own. Both the tops I bought were £12 each which I think is really reasonable.
That's everything I picked up from Forever 21, four new pieces for a total of £44 which I think is very reasonable! I know these aren't the most exciting items to talk about but I had to share my new found love for Forever 21 with you all! I hope if any of you struggle to find reasonably priced gym wear which has a good selection available this helps you.
What do you think of these pieces? Have you tried any Forever 21 gym wear? Is there anywhere else you recommend?
