    1// Mat - A really good mat is a universal must-have for workouts, whether you are at home burning a sweat or in class.

    2// FitBit Charge - This band does it all, from tracking your daily activity (steps taken, distance, calories burned and floors climbed) to monitoring your sleep activity, all in real-time. Add Caller ID and wireless syncing to your smartphone and other devices, and the FitBit becomes your very own fitness personal assistant.

    3// High-Performance Earbuds - Who doesn't like listening to their favorite music while burning a sweat? These earbuds will help you pass the time and have a blast while burning off the holiday calories.

    1// SoulCycle - SoulCycle takes spinning classes to the next level. With motivational and inspirational instructors, candlelight and great music, never has riding a stationary bike been so much fun.

    2// Yoga - There seems to be a yoga class for just about anyone. If your goal is to stay focused and relaxed in spite of how crazy life gets sometimes or just strengthen your body, yoga does it all.

    3// Treadmill Classes - Gym clubs all over the country are going crazy for treadmill classes. In fact, many are saying it's the new 'it' class. We're excited to look a class up and give it a try!

    4// HIIT - Short for High-Intensity Interval Training, these classes have become extremely popular and are a fun and high-energy way of burning a TON of those extra holiday calories!
