Gym Clothes That Are Fashionably Fit

We all know that working out can be a total bitch. After a long day at the office or a late-night of carousing with friends, the morning motivation to hit the gym is usually nowhere to be found. But what if you had an awesome outfit and some really stellar gym-rat gear to inspire you while chiseling those abs? Whether you're headed for a dip in the pool or a date with the Downward Dog, we've got some seriously inspiring goodies to push you through the gym doors. With stuff this cool, the gym is bound to feel like home in no time.

Hitting the pavement or the treadmill requires strength and endurance--but you've also got to dress the part. Choose a cute pair of mini-shorts and a colorful sports bra, so that you'll have the perfect amount of support without sacrificing a cool breeze. Just don't forget to pop in your earbuds, so that you can sing along to your favorite tunes as you sprint.

It's no secret that a few laps in the pool does wonders for the bod, but speedos are so last century.

With these essentials, you'll be gliding through the water at lightning speed.
