By Rebecca Carhart for Modern Muse

Besides a fresh start, January also brings plenty of new year's resolutions. Make 2018 the year you actually stick to them and achieve your fitness goals. While everyone needs a little extra motivation now and then to hit the gym, the easiest way to find that inspo is with some stylish new activewear. We've rounded up the workout gear that's so cute that you'll want to work out.

Pretty Rose Gold Leggings

Who can resist activewear with a high-fashion twist? These pretty pastel Alo Airbrush High-Waist Leggings from Nordstrom have been given a cool upgrade through rose-gold embellishments. The soft and stretchy bottoms feature smooth flatlock seams so you won't chafe, making them perfect for every type of workout.

Functional Yet Fashionable Jacket

This Athleta Rock Creek Jacket is so stylish, it will easily take you from your spin class to lunch in a snap. Made with PrimaLoft® Eco insulation and reflective details, it will also keep you warm and safe as you pound the pavement for an evening run.

Sleek Sneakers

Cool kicks will always give you that extra boost you need to make it to your morning workout. These APL Phantom Techloom Knit Sneakers are so sleek you'll want to wear them outside the gym too. The shoes are made with a stretch-grid pattern to offer a comfortable fit, while their Propelium® cushioning adds comfort and maximizes energy generation.

If it's good enough for Queen Bey it's good enough for you. Her athleisure line Ivy Park is full of cool modern workout clothes, but we can't think of a better piece to wear to a dance cardio class than this Logo Cropped Hoodie from Six:02. The soft yet sporty style will have you grooving like Beyoncé in no time.

Designer Sports Bra

The easiest way to add a designer brand to your wardrobe is through its activewear line — it's more affordable but just as stylish. This adidas by Stella McCartney Run Contour Sports Bra from Neiman Marcus is made with ClimaChill® technology for maximum breathability, allowing you to go the extra mile. Plus, it's so chic it can double as a crop top on a night out.

Fitbit You'll Want To Show Off

While Fitbit activity trackers are handy tools that can track everything from your step count to your sleep habits, the rubber wristbands they come with are not the most fashionable accessories. But thanks to the Tory Burch for Fitbit Alta Bracelet, you can now track your fitness activities in style. Simply place the Fitbit inside the brass and resin bauble to look sleek and polished as you track your next workout.
