Stay motivating is half the battle when it comes to working out. The other half is looking—and feeling—the part. Switching up your routine regularly will see you reap the fitness rewards, as will an investment in some quality gym wear.

From the weights room to the spin class, here are nine sports items to take the sweat out of your next gym gear shop.
