If your favorite sports bra is starting to look a little sad or the leggings that once fitted like a dream now need to be laced up every five minutes, you’re probably due for a refresh. Besides, it Is It’s resolution season, and the streamlined, sweat-soaked outfits below will make your follow-through that much sweeter. All those who have committed to continuity this month say yes. (Yes.)

For a gentle yoga flow or a longer, strengthening Pilates session, all you’ll need is a soft matching set, grippy socks and slides, which you can start with after you arrive at class. Bala’s weighted bangles—which can be worn around your wrists or your ankles—add just the right amount of resistance should you want to kick things up a notch. And if you want to work up your sweat while lying down, might we suggest investing in a sauna blanket?

Training for that marathon you’ve always wanted to run. Hitting the mat for cardio-boxing class. Picking up tennis. For a more intense workout, choose thick clothing—with sweat-wicking properties—that will support you through every rep, step or rally. Other goodies: Clear deodorant, designer dumbbells, and a recovery bath soak to soothe weary limbs.
