Now that the holidays are over, so are the endless treats and heavy dishes that come along with all those get-togethers. Here at Style Nine to Five, we’re not the type to completely restart our fitness routines come January 1st, but we can always use a bit of extra motivation at this time of year. If you’re in need of a reason to hit the gym in 2018, some fresh workout gear always seems to do the trick! Read on for seven of our favourite workout pieces that are not only extremely fashionable (seriously, you’ll have no problem being spotted in these items) but they’ll also have you feeling motivated to hit the gym.
Wunder Under Hi-Rise Tight
If you’re looking for a stellar pair of workout tights, Lululemon is always first choice. Made from Luxtreme fabric, these soft feeling tights hold you in while still feeling comfortable. They will definitely become your new go-to for everything from yoga, to running, to day to day errands.

This ¼ zip pullover from Old Navy is a great option for travelling to and from the gym, or for those of us who need some extra warmth during a workout. With subtle details like thumb hole cutouts and a reflective chest logo, this is not your standard workout top.
