How to Score Deals on Lululemon Gear

One way to make exercising a little more enjoyable is fancy workout clothing. Quality clothing can make your workouts better by keeping you comfortable and staying in place. Its also fun to treat yourself to new gear when you meet a goal or just want to motivate yourself.
