Ah, New Year’s resolutions. We make them in the days and weeks leading up to the new calendar year, with our hearts and minds full of hope and promise. We’re going to only eat organic food, we’re going to cook at home way more, and we’re going to workout all the time because we love it. Right? Right.
And then we all woke up on January 1. If you were on the East Coast, it was grey and cold and raining and well, all that motivation flew right out the window. Whether you were battling a hangover or not that day, all the hope and promise we had imagined turned out to be a whole lot of pressure. And what do I tend to do when I feel under pressure? Sit on my couch and watch Bravo shows, of course.
While it’s cool to do that on January 1—it is a national holiday after all!—we should rally together to keep our resolutions on track straight through spring and summer. To get us there, we’ve gathered 15 must-have fitness gear products that will be hard to ignore even on your least-motivated days. From kettle bells to a super slick backpack, these items will all help to keep our fitness goals in tact...and, oh yeah, keep us looking smokin’ hot, too.
