At a certain point our enthusiasm for keeping fitness-related resolutions starts to wear off, and we find ourselves feeling less and less motivated to hit the gym or exercise studio. When this occurs, it’s time for reinforcements in the form of a great workout playlist, gym buddy, and a well-stocked gym bag packed with essential items that will actually make you excited to break a sweat. While we would never presume to tell you what to listen to on the treadmill and we’re no substitute for the kind of in-person encouragement a truly committed friend can offer, we can provide some suggestions for the latter. Here, we present 14 bags, beauty products, workout pieces, and accessories that will make sticking to your workout routine feel a bit more enticing.
