Everyone and their mom is trying to get you to buy diet and workout stuff in January, but the Women's Health-curated Gilt Groupe sale taking place right now is actually pretty enticing. It advertises "Everything you need to look (and feel!) your best in 2012" and makes sense for all involved, really. On Gilt's end, it's one of the few times of year they can get you to consider a new pair of New Balances over a new pair of Rachel Comeys. On Women's Health's end, it's one of the few times?ever?they can get the credit-card-happy fashion demographic to pay attention to their shopping recommendations. Or any other recommendations. And on your end, isn't it funny how buying discount workout gear actually somehow feels just as productive as actually working out? Yeah. So it's pretty much a win-win-win.
We just clicked through the sale, and though shoe sizes are dwindling, there's some good stuff left among the sneakers, workout gear, and yoga essentials. See our picks in the gallery above. Sale ends Sunday at midnight.
