50 Under $50: Workout Gear

It’s February—the coldest month of the year—and odds are your workout motivation has cooled down too. While hiring a militant trainer or shelling out for trendy classes might help to revive your enthusiasm, buying new workout gear will too, and for much less money.

At under $50 a pop, each of these options is a fun and inexpensive way to get your mind back in the gym game—and, of course, leaves extra funds for clothes that aren't elliptical-exclusive.
