activewearThere is an encouraging workout saying that goes “summer bodies are earned in the winter.”  If you set your goals and begin working towards them now, you will find that come summertime, you have achieved a healthier summer body, rather than trying to cram in all your workouts later in the months. If you need a boost of motivation for your workouts, start with heightening your confidence by looking and feeling good in your active wear and sporting stylish workout gear. Before you hit the gym check out our top picks that will inspire your attire and workout regime.

Each accessory keeps the device secure while staying super-chic. $175-$195.
  2. Keep Track

Thanks to wearable technology, it’s never been easier to track your fitness goals and progress.
