5.    Backpack 

To avoid looking clumsy, invest in a cute backpack that is spacious enough for all your gym gear. In an InStyle article, psychologist Santa Clara says stylish gym clothes will motivate you and keep you moving. And, she suggests that you put your bag where it will be visible, so you can remember to go out and exercise. “Keep a vibrant, cheerfully patterned packed duffel near the door," she says.
