(Source: Carbon38; Onzie Criss-Cross Bra Top, $45; Onzie Monet Leggings, $65; NUX Harmony Tank, $62; NUX Herrera Capri, $82; Basic Ombre Tank, $50; L'Urv Floral Compression Leggings, $153)Carbon38, an e-tailer dedicated to the newest (and fiercest) activewear lines, is the perfect antidote to our lagging motivation to hit the gym this time of year. We dare you to peruse its selection of eye-popping print leggings ($58–$153), high-tech sports bras ($20–$170) and other beyond-cool gear and not want to march yourself directly to a grueling SoulCycle class.

(You won't find any Nike or Under Armour here, gals). Besides offering plenty of get-thee-to-a-barre-class motivation, it's an amazing place to discover fly new labels such as Koral, SLOG and more.

Though the site's styles skew on the bold side (animal prints, edgy florals and vampy cut-outs abound), there are plenty of basic options, with price points to please a range of exercisers. And while we never thought we'd contemplate dropping $125 on a pair of hydrangea-patterned capris, if they get us excited about our next date with the elliptical machine, hey, it's a small price to pay in our book.
