Remember when tattered t-shirts and your old high school gym shorts were considered acceptable workout gear? Take a class at your local SoulCycle or yoga studio, and you'll find yourself surrounded by women (and men) in printed leggings with color-coordinated sneakers, or in consciously understated black-and-charcoal ensembles — many with impressive performance capabilities that wick away sweat and even combat smell.

With athleticwear undergoing an aesthetic and technological revolution — and dozens of new labels popping up each month as a result — 2015 is a great year to gift some new gear. Chances are, it's exactly the thing your loved ones are seeking to kickstart their New Year's resolutions.
