If your favorite sports bra is starting to look a little sad, or those leggings that once fit like a dream now need to be hiked up every five minutes, you probably need a refresh. Plus, that is resolution season, and the streamlined, sweat-wicking outfits below will make your follow-up that much sweeter. All those who commit to consistency this month say yes. (Yes.)

For a gentle yoga flow or a lengthening, strengthening Pilates session, all you need is a soft matching kit, grippy socks and slides to start with when you get to class. Bala’s weighted bangles – which can be worn around your wrists or your ankles – add just the right amount of resistance if you’re looking to kick things up a notch. And if you’d rather work up a sweat while lying on your back, might we suggest investing in a sauna blanket?

Training for the marathon you’ve always wanted to run. Hit the mat for a cardio boxing class. Beginning tennis. For more intense training, choose thicker fabrics – with sweat-wicking properties – that will support you through every rep, step or rally. Other goodies to have: clean deodorant, designer dumbbells, and a recovery soak to soothe tired limbs.
