The New Year is usually met with lies dressed up as resolutions that have an alarmingly short shelf life. Many of the resolutionees end up doing nothing more than taking up space at your local gym. Thankfully, their self-motivation stretches just as far as convenience goes, and by February the once-newly devoted fitness gurus are back on their couches binge watching House of Cards.

Luckily, the market is full of gadgets and gear to help keep you accountable and active. And, oh yeah, looking good for beach season never hurts, either.
