Lifting unstable weights is one of the hottest new fitness trends but these versatile tools don’t come cheap. Especially if you’re a girl. A basic black sandbag is $99 from one popular retailer but the pink sandbag of the same dimensions is $104.99. It’s not a huge difference but considering the camoflauge option is still only $99, it seems a little unfair to upcharge for a more feminine color.
Worth it? If swinging something pink motivates you more to workout then it’s worth the five bucks. Otherwise, stick to black and show off your new shoes with a pop of neon.
Do you buy any fitness gear (besides clothing) that is specifically made for women? Have you ever paid more for something just because it’s pink?
*I do have a couple of guy runner friends who swear that wearing a sports bra under their t-shirts prevents nipple chaffing on long runs. Of course they don’t call them “sports bras,” they call them cropped tank tops or something, but it’s basically a sports bra….
