The dawn of each new year spawns a thousand unused gym memberships. It's not like there weren't good intentions behind inadvertently spending £40 a month for six months to sip a protein shake in a sauna a total of one time, but finding the motivation can be hard.

That's why we're here to bring you the best fitness gear 2016 has to offer so far. Because when you look that good, why wouldn't you want to show it off.
