Putting health and fitness first by signing up for a gym membership or monthly class package is one of the more popular resolutions made this time of year, but losing steam after a few weeks is just as common.
Old habits are hard to break and new habits can be even harder to break in, especially when it’s still pitch black outside when your alarm goes off for that early morning run. It’s certainly not necessary, but why not tip the scales in your favor by adding a few new athletic pieces you really like into the rotation?
While it may seem ridiculous that you — a real life adult — need the added pressure of having spent $60 on a new sports bra to keep you going to that barre class through February, here’s speaking from experience: It works.
Right now, there are tons of cool pieces to shop from brands you might already know and love, like Nike, as well as brands you should get more familiar with in 2017, like P.E. Nation.
If they don’t help get you excited about going to the gym in 2017, at least you’ll be excited about what you’re wearing.
