If you're just starting on your fitness journey, let me be the first to say hooray! It's not an easy thing to do, but once you've made fitness a habit, your entire life will change for the better. To make the start of your new fit & fab life a little easier, I've got some workout gear suggestions for you. You won't need all of it, of course, but some of it may just inspire you to run faster, jump higher, do one more squat, and burn a couple of extra calories.
