New Year, New Gear: Workout Inspiration
Everyone's new years kicking off in full swing?
I've talked before about how I don't believe in New Years resolutions (here's what I do instead), particularly when it comes to health and fitness, but what I am not at all above is using some cute new workout clothes to entice me to frequent the gym even more right off the bat.
Admit it: there's nothing quite like having a new outfit or workout gear that helps get your butt back in the gym after some time slacking off. And I think we all could use a little extra kick in the butt to step our game up after inevitably taking it a bit easier over the holidays with food and downtime with family-- I know I can! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I've really made an effort to pare down my shopping over the past couple of years, so I only ever purchase the stuff I really need, can't live without (hey Marie Kondo life), and that will last me a long time. Considering though that workout clothes ARE my work clothes though, I do wear them down quite a bit and am frequently on the hunt for cute new workout clothes and gear.
Over the years, I've also become a stickler for high-performance pieces too because I can't stand stuff that looks pretty but doesn't survive sweaty and grueling workouts-- so all the brands on this list are tested and true! Some of these are up to 40% off, and brands of all price points are included.
