As we roll through the early days of 2021, you’ve probably got a fair amount of fitness motivation. But if you’re looking for that extra boost that’ll carry you through the spring, when so many drop off, training with some fine new gear never hurts.
To start, look no further than the following eight outstanding products, all of which have earned our elusive Just Get This badge. Considering we research and review hundreds, if not thousands, of fitness products every year, that’s a very special designation indeed.
From shirts and shorts to shoes and earbuds, these essentials will help you keep your eyes — not to mention your arms, legs, core and more — on the best-body-ever prize.

The Jaybird Vistas have an IPX7 rating, meaning they’re fully waterproof and sweatproof. Their lightweight design makes them feel like they’re not even in your ears, and the carrying case is slimmer than that of the competition.
