24 Reasons to Get Your Body Moving in the New Year

24 Reasons to Get Your Body Moving in the New Year

It can be hard to get motivated to work on moving your body again after a month of crazy holiday sweets and mashed potatoes. And I must admit, that I’m in that boat too. BUT I have a little trick to get myself motivated right away in the new year, 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 me 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 24 of the coolest workout items to motivate you in the new year… Rollover any image below for more info or click to start shopping.

Feeling extra motivated? Try this smoothie recipe for a post workout snack / meal to keep things going. There’s a chia seed smoothie option too.

Are you a January get-back-into-working-out kind of person? Or a year-round exercise all star? Would love to know!

This is such a fun idea! I usually do the opposite–I wait to prove to myself that I will actually do the thing (whatever it is) before I go out and buy a bunch of equipment to help me do the thing. I figure if I’m going to run, I will should be willing to do it regardless of what sneakers I have, or if I’m going to start the new craft hobby, I should enjoy it with what I’ve got first. But buying ONE new thing sounds like a great compromise.


These workout gear looks awesome! Thank you so much for sharing these!
