Finding the balance between self and work (and family and friends) is never easy at this time of year. So, if you’re looking for some extra motivation to get off the couch and back to the gym, one easy (yet overlooked) way, is by putting on workout clothes you actually like.

Turns out that 69 percent of people claim that having nice workout clothing that they enjoy putting on helps push them to exercise. This intel is based on a survey of over 2,000 gym goers who said they felt more motivated to move when they liked what they were wearing. It’s something Denise Lee, founder and CEO of the buzzy activewear line Alala, says she’s found to be true, too.

“Owning activewear you love can promote a healthier, more active lifestyle”, says Lee. “When you feel good, your mindset shifts to a place where self-care becomes more important to you. You should always feel 100 percent comfortable and supported in your workouts.” Here, here.

Creating a positive, mindful experience starts with what you see in the mirror each day. So, if you’re looking for some inspo when it comes to new workout clothes, scroll down to see activewear pieces that might just motivate you to emerge from your chenille cocoon and hit the gym or studio.
