1. A cute (and functional) workout outfit
When you have a cute outfit in mind, waking up and getting dressed seems like an exciting prospect. It's no different for workout clothes. Shopping for a new workout outfit can be extremely satisfying and it might just be the thing you need to get you to the gym. When you look your best, even while heading to a workout, you will also feel your best and therefore feel more motivated. Don't hold back on dressing up just because you're eventually going to get all sweaty. It's worth the time and trouble.
2. A fitness tracker
Getting yourself a fitness tracker band that gives you timely reminders about your activity can prove really helpful. Sometimes, just seeing how little you've moved all day and having a tracker remind you can shock you enough to get you moving.
3. A kickass playlist
It may not technically count as an item, but the device it's coming out of does - so we're close enough. A lively, peppy playlist, with all your favourite songs will really get you moving. Music has the power to change your mood and help you achieve the kind of vibe you're looking for. Use that to your advantage.
