The beginning of the year is when most people attempt to put on those running clothes and get back into the exercise game. And I must admit, that I’m in that boat too. I realize that it can be hard to get motivated to work on moving your body again after a month of crazy holiday sweets and mashed potatoes.
Luckily, I have a little trick to get myself motivated right away and while it may not work for everyone, it does for me, so I wanted to share. It’s this…
I buy myself one new piece of workout gear, that I really love, BEFORE I start exercising again. I’m not talking about a sad little pair of sneakers from the discount bin (though I’ve done that many times too – nothing wrong with that). I’m more talking about those color blocked leggings I’ve been eyeing, a sports bra with a cool pattern on it, comfortable (and colorful) running shoes, etc. Just something to encourage myself before I really even get started.
So, I did a whole bunch of window shopping. And put together a big list of cool outfits for working out that will make you feel good while you’re on your way to feeling good, if that makes sense. Come on, treat yo self to a little something to get motivated for the new year.
Here are 29 of the coolest workout items to motivate you in the new year… Rollover any image below for more info or click to start shopping.
Are you a January get-back-into-working-out kind of person? Or a year-round exercise all star? Would love to know!
