Decathlon vs Sports Direct. Where should you buy sports apparel?

When you exercise, the clothes you wear are just as important as the sport you play, whether it's for comfort or safety. The right shoes can also make the difference between feeling fresh and having sore feet after your workout. It's worth spending the extra money. Thinking about where and how you will exercise helps you choose the best clothing and footwear. You can find many of the items you need at your nearest local store or in department or discount stores. In the UK, there are two major chains that are vying for power in the territory and grabbing the most customers: Decathlon and Sports Direct. Which one offers the best discounts and customer service?

Decathlon has a wide range of sports clothing and footwear products. You will find bicycles, backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, boxing and yoga gear, exercise clothes for every occasion, water sports equipment, footwear, golf clubs, snowshoes, skates and winter sports gear. This chain operates 40 brands, offering almost everything a customer might need to practice any sporting activity. Its brands include Quechua, Artengo, Dreamscape, Hoptown, Kimjay, Korok, Offload, Outshock, Urball, Waikru, Caperlan, Domyos, Forclaz, Geologic, Subsea, Adidas and Garmin. One of the great advantages of Decathlon is that it offers discounts of up to 50% on selected products and even on exercise machines. If you are one of those people who find it hard to go to the gym, a home workout machine is the best option. Decathlon has low prices and provides regular discounts, although the specifics can vary depending on the retailer.

In Sports Direct you will also find a variety of products: sportswear, accessories and equipment for outdoor activities. You can buy joggers, jeans, tracksuits, sports shoes, sneakers, vests, backpacks, socks, camping and fishing equipment, gym equipment and many other products. The best brands in the market and that have international presence are here: Adidas, Nike, Under Armour, USA PRO, Everlast, New Balance, among others. It's not worth going to several stores if you have everything at Sports Direct. Sports Direct has a lot of discounts. You can find most of them on their website or by subscribing to their newsletter for the latest deals and seasonal sales. Use the store finder section to discover places near your location. If it's cold, as it is now in the UK, wear several layers of clothing. Wear a close-fitting layer that lets sweat escape. Also add a warmer layer such as a fleece jacket on top. Wear gloves, a hat and cover your ears if needed. Remove layers as your temperature rises. If you go running or hiking, you may want to include a backpack. This way you can remove layers as you get warmer, as well as carry a bottle of water with you. Of course, you can purchase all of these garments at Decathlon and Direct Sports.
