We don't always want to work out, especially after a long day of work, but we do it because it's good for us. Exercise is good for our energy levels, our health, and staying at a healthy weight.

Of course, motivation is absolutely the name of the game, and sometimes the best way to do something we're not so sure of is to be cute while we're doing it! And these are the cutest, best workout clothes we could find.
