What could be better than workout gear that gives you an extra kick in the rear?

Answer: Nothing.

Fashion and fitness may not have always gone hand-in-hand, but thanks to the health craze that's been sweeping the nation lately, there's no excuse not to sweat in style these days. And beyond just being trendy, some workout apparel is even offering a little inspiration in exchange for that perspiration with motivational sayings on tanks, tees, sleeves, pants and even yoga mats.

Lorna Jane's "Be Amazing Tank", $35, is perhaps the cutest reminder to be just that — amazing. After all, what better way to remember it, than to wear it?
