Online sports stores in the Philippines
With everyone preferring to stay at home than to risk going out and catching COVID-19, it’s become hard to tell one day from another. Which means that for gymmers and anyone trying to stick to an exercise plan, it’s also become hard to remember when your last cheat day was, making snacking happen more often, and workout routines left forgotten.
It might help to surround yourself with reminders to get fit, such as activewear and gym equipment. Luckily, these online sports and sportswear stores in the Philippines deliver right to your doorstep – giving us one less excuse to avoid working out!
Online sports stores with workout clothes

Activewear for children isn’t something you see in every athletic store. Fortunately, The Shape Shop Active offers sports bras and leggings for kids so that you can get fit while looking cute with your kids. Their website also makes it easier for you to shop for yourself, separating clothes by body shape such as athletic, pear, and hourglass.
Athletic tops, leggings, and jackets across the shop cost P997.50 (~USD20.28), with shipping available nationwide. And with every P1,995 (~USD40.56) purchase, they pledge an outfit to a frontliner in the COVID-19 ward of Philippine General Hospital.
2. Sugar Rush Athleisure – wearable to the gym and on your errand runs

Imagine the irony of getting fit in clothing named after delicious, calorie-laden sweets. Sugar Rush Athleisure offers that, with their activewear named after sweets such as Cheesecake leggings and Macaron sports bras.
Not only do these clothes sound yummy, but they’re also cute enough to wear casually on your errand runs, because the designs are more minimalistic than sporty. Prices start from P999 (~USD20.31), but the shop often posts promos and giveaways, so you can get your activewear with items such as cute face masks or lip tints.
The shop is Cebu-based, which is a win for the Bisayas, but they also offer shipping nationwide.
3. Lotus Activewear – pair your activewear with athletic accessories

No outfit is complete without an accessory, and that includes what you wear to the gym. Aside from activewear for both men and women, Lotus Activewear sells athletic accessories such as headbands, face masks, and grip toe socks from P50 (~USD1.02).

Prices start at P245 (~USD4.98), and worry not if you’re a Filipino abroad who wants to support local – they offer worldwide shipping.
4. Pinch Fitness – get activewear and yoga mats from one store

For those who are starting out on their yoga journey, you can get the full deal from Pinch Fitness, where you can get both activewear and yoga mats.
Activewear, from P830 (~USD16.87) for sports bras and leggings, come in cute cuts and colors such as ocean green and blush. Their premium yoga mats also come in cute colors such as purple and dusty blue, so you can easily match your mat with your outfit for P4,500 (~USD91.48).
The price sounds steep but look at it as an investment, since the yoga mats have features such as advanced grip technology and added support cushioning.
You can arrange to pick up your orders if you live in Cebu. Otherwise, you can opt for shipping, which they offer nationwide.
5. Inka Atletika – gym-to-swim activewear

Designed to be gym-to-swim pieces, the activewear from Inka Atletika means you can use them both for swimming and working out at the gym. Though going out to a public pool or the beach is still not recommended while COVID-19 is out there, you can prep yourself for next year’s summer and use these clothes for your home workouts for now.
The sport bralettes, tanks, and shorts go from P1,500 (~USD30.49), and come in cute and girly patterns, and pastel colors that you won’t find often amongst the usually plain or color-blocked activewear.
Some pieces are even reversible, so aside from being dual-purpose, some of them can also be turned inside out so you get two different styles in one piece. You can cop these clothes from wherever you are in the Philippines, since they ship nationwide.
6. Ahon – Filipino-inspired designs

Show off your Pinoy pride with activewear from Ahon. Their product designs are inspired by Philippine culture, such as creative Philippine flags, patterns of indigenous tribes, and baybayin, the Philippine alphabet.

Filipino-inspired merch can often be tacky because most just slap on a Philippine flag and call it patriotic, but the creative designs of Ahon make for more wearable, stylish, yet still patriotic clothes.
Aside from clothes (from P490, ~USD9.96) such as tech shirts, singlets, and hoodies, they also have accessories (from P195, ~USD3.97) such as visors, gaiters, and bandanas. Shipping is offered worldwide, so you can dress like a proud Filipino wherever you are.
7. Version Activewear PH – tops that aren’t just sports bras

When it comes to sportswear for women, we’re used to thinking sports bras that show off the arms and tummy, and not everyone is comfortable with that. Version Activewear offers cute workout shirts and crop tops for those who don’t like to show off a lot of skin, the way sports bras tend to.
Since they also offer the usual sports bras as well, you can even layer your activewear tops for more support and mix-and-match designs, from only P650 (~USD13.22).
You can get yoga mats for P2,200 (~USD44.74) while you’re at it, too, and have everything shipped to you since they offer nationwide shipping.
