The SHARP List: Our 2021 Gift Guide for Fitness Fanatics

If you still haven’t restarted your gym membership, you are not alone. Some people prefer the idea of in-person classes, having a routine, and/or joining a gym. Others just need a little more motivation — and by motivation, we mean designer gym gear that will surely get you in the mood. Consider this gear your motivation to set some New Year’s resolutions and get those endorphins flowing again. It doesn’t matter if you’re going on a solo bike ride, attending weekly classes, or exercising in your living room using your new at-home fitness system, as long as you’re breaking a sweat.
