With a new year, comes a new list of intentions you're hoping will turn into helpful habits over the next twelve months. And if upping your fitness game is on your radar for 2019, there's no better way to motivate yourself to get moving than to update your workout wardrobe with fresh pieces you can't wait to put on. Sticking to a budget also on your list? Then you'll want to shop the upcoming H&M Sport collection, which happens to be as affordable as it is stylish.

Set to launch online and in H&M stores at the beginning of January, the H&M Sport 2019 collection has essentially all the apparel you'll need to start the new year off on the right foot. From year-round must-haves like sports bras, socks, and tank tops, to seasonal necessities like insulated vests and jackets and sleek leggings (ideal for those brave winter runners), the new launch is a thoughtful capsule of pieces in easy-to-wear colors so you can spend less time sorting through clothes and more time sweating it out.

It doesn't hurt, too, that the prices are particularly wallet-friendly — so you can get your fitness goals underway without wreaking havoc on your budget right as 2019 kicks off. The collection's sports bras, available in a feminine soft pink shade and a classic black with sporty graphics, will ring in at $9.99 a piece. The drop's leggings are no less affordable, coming in at $17.99 for a no-fuss black pair and $24.99 for a sleek color-blocked pink, blank, and gray style that's ideal for those trying to work a couple more shades into their exercise attire.

The entire collection is rendered in the same cool, low-key colors so you can easily mix and match or layer the pieces for any activity, from indoor aerobics and yoga classes to a bootcamp or run club at your local park. The leggings and $12.99 tank tops are no-brainers, but grab the gray and pink vest, $39.99 as well to wear as an outer layer. Subtle reflective metallic details on several of the pieces add additional flair — and can double as a safety feature if you're exercising outdoors in low light.

Another bonus of the stylish and affordable collection? Since all the pieces actually go together — unlike, say, the old, mismatched workout clothes you've admittedly kept way too long — you can go about your day pre- or post-workout without having to change. Throw on the color-block leggings, pink sports bra, and easy white tank top for your morning yoga flow session, then add a vest or sporty, form-fitting jacket, $49.99, to run errands or meet up with friends for a casual brunch.

If you've been lamenting over the fact that you should probably pay a bit more attention to your fitness, leave it to high-street fave H&M to come up with cheap workout gear that's cute enough to convince you to break a sweat. But as with many of the brand's buzzed-about drops, the pieces are bound to move fast — so keep an eye on H&M's socials like Instagram and be ready to sprint when the collection officially goes live.
