A FIT GAL'S GUIDE TO HEALTH & FITNESS DISCOUNTS
As a health and fitness obsessed enthusiast and blogger I find myself wanting to try every new workout, order all the new meal prep and food services, and flee to the store for all the new products and flavors that hit the shelves...basically there is a million things I want to spend money on. People ask me all the time how I afford to do so many different things so I am happy to finally share with you all my SECRETS!!!
GILT CITY is one my favorite discounted sites. In my opinion the quality of things and places I find on there is much higher than other sites. The trick is to sign up for their emails so you are the first to know about what is new on their site! I can't tell you how often I see deals sell out on Gilt City. Some amazing deals I have taken advantage of include: Vital Proteins discounts, Burn Babe Fitness classes, tickets to free movie screenings, discounts at Alfred Coffee, and so much more! You can find almost any major city on here including Chicago, LA, Miami, and New York just to name a few. Click below and use CODE: GIVE25 to receive $25 off your first purchase of $75 or more.
LIVING SOCIAL is a great website and app for finding discounts at fitness studios, restaurants, events, and so much more! Some fitness studios in LA I have stumbled upon on Living Social include: Burn 60, Burn Babe Fitness, and Aura Cycle.
GROUPON is another incredible website for deals and discounts! Personally I have had really good luck finding events on Groupon such as tickets to the California Vegan Food Festival and The LA Fit Expo, massages at a place I love in LA called Sparadise, AND yummy restaurants including EVO Kitchen! Click below to start saving!
MAMBO SPROUTS is an awesome website that offers free printable coupons for items that are vegan, vegetarian, non-GMO, organic, natural, soy free, and much more. Some brands I have printed coupons for include Tom's Natural Toothpaste products, SO Delicious, Perfect Bar, Rx Bars, Kite Hill products, and Almond Breeze. Click below to start printing coupons!
HEALTH AND FITNESS EXPOS
HEALTH AND FITNESS EXPOS are the perfect place to get incredible special expo prices on products you LOVE and as mentioned in my Fitness Expo Round-Up Video , the perfect place and opportunity to snatch up tons of coupons for products you frequently buy throughout the year. At this year's Anaheim Fit Expo I scored some FREE cans of Celsius coupons and a stack of $5 off a $25 purchase at Ralph's Grocery Store. And did I mention my Expo ticket cost me $10 on Groupon?

ZENREZ is a fitness app that offers discounted classes at fitness studios across the country. On this app you can book classes starting at 9pm for the next day's classes. Some studios available on Zenrez include: Orangetheory Fitness, Basecamp, Burn 60, Speedplay, and Sanctuary Fitness. For a full list of studios available on Zenrez click here. And for $10 off your first class click below.
HOLIDAY AND SEASONAL DEALS
HOLIDAY AND SEASONAL DEALS are something you should be on the look out for when it comes to getting discounts! Many fitness studios will do seasonal discounts and sales on fitness classes and apparel as well as run holiday specials around Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Black Friday, New Years, and other holidays. This is the perfect time to save on class packs at your favorite studios.
WAREHOUSE AND SAMPLE SALES
WAREHOUSE AND SAMPLE SALES are great resources when it comes to keeping my workout and athleisure wardrobe fresh and fun! This year I scored some workout clothes and gear from Barry's Bootcamp sample sale, the Soul Cycle Warehouse Sale, the Sweaty Betty sample sale, and the Lorna Jane Sample Sale. I even walked away with a pair of brand new cycling shoes for half off! These take place once or twice a year in major cities to help clear out old inventory so new apparel can be put on the shelves. To find sample and warehouse sales in and around LA I use this site. For other cities do a little research...it will be so worth it!
GROCERY SHOPPING HACKS
GROCERY STORES offer so many ways to get discounts! I personally shop at RALPH'S GROCERY STORE (owned by Kroger) and their app is amazing for finding downloadable coupons and they have Free Fridays...every Friday they have a download for a free item that you have a few weeks to stop at the store and pick up! It can only be downloaded that Friday! I have gotten a free loaf of bread, protein bars, candy bars, and so much more! AND for every $100 I spend at Ralph's I receive 10 cents off the gallon at Shell gas stations. I also took advantage of applying to the Ralph's Visa card because for every $100 I spend I receive a $5 reward. And I am always buying groceries! Many grocery stores have rewards like this!
Another store I frequent is TRADER JOES. As many of you may have noticed more recently Trader Joes has been carrying other brands in store such as RX Bars and Perfect Bars. I always assumed TJ's wouldn't take any sort of coupon until I finally asked and now every time I go I take a printable Mambo Sprouts $1off a Perfect Bar and score a Perfect Bar for just $1. The cashier is literally amazed by this! These bars can cost over $3 at most stores!
So we all know WHOLE FOODS can get pricey, BUT again I rarely buy anything full price there. Keep your eye out for the Whole Foods Coupon Book sitting somewhere in the front or outside of your local Whole Foods. Also utilize Mambo Sprouts because almost all those brands are sold in WF! Whole Foods also has some pretty legit sale weekends throughout the year. During these sales WF offers up to 25% OFF of health and beauty products, proteins, vitamins, and supplements. This is the perfect time to head to Whole Foods to stock up and take advantage of discounts!
SPROUTS is one of my favorite stores...sort of a combination between your local farmer's market, with brands like Whole Foods, and prices like Trader Joes. It is legit! AND Wednesday is the day to be there. Sprouts has Double Ad Wednesday, which means every Wednesday a new sales ad comes out at Sprouts but they also honor the sale items/prices from the previous week's ads as well! DOUBLE the savings! When I shop on Wednesdays almost all the brands I buy are on sale! SCORE! Click below for a weekly ad near you!
FARMERS MARKETS are pretty popular in LA because of the year-round pleasant weather, but most towns have a farmers market if you look into it! I personally like to go early, beat the crowds, and get all my favorite hummus flavors BUT if you are looking to save money arrive at the farmers market right before it closes and you can score so many goods and produce for much cheaper if you negotiate a little! It is either they sell for less or don't sell at all!
Happy Savings Fit Friends!
