New year, new you? People always joke about how much we get carried away with wanting to reinvent ourselves every January. Statistically, gym memberships spike during the first month of every year, but we see the crowd thinning once February hits.

To keep you from spending so much money on a gym membership that you're not sure you'll use, try investing in some workout gear instead and maybe find a workout buddy or two to exercise with at home.

Our inspo? Non-other than the It Girls. Because it's not just about buying gear, but motivating yourself to use them. As Solenn has mentioned before in an interview with FemaleNetwork.com (FN), "Working out, in the beginning it's really hard, you have to really force yourself, but the moment you get into that routine, it's like your body looks for it. And you really do have a better day if you eat better and work out and surround yourself with positive people.

"To stay consistent, in wellness, it's always easier to start with someone. Just don't think that if that person's not there, you can't do it on your own, because it starts with you. The moment you do it for yourself, it'll be easier for you to motivate other people around you, too."

Here's how you can create your own home gym that's more accessible and affordable!
