In my oh-so-professional opinion, working out sucks. Occasionally you can cheat at life by doing things like rereading Harry Potter on the elliptical (which is a thing I may or may not have done on this very morning), but if you're looking to get extra boss-level inspired, then consider amping up your wardrobe with all these Harry Potter-inspired workout clothes. Even if the treadmill is perhaps the object with the least amount of magic in the entire Muggle world, you can still pretend you don't want to take a nap on it when you're decked to the nines in your Hogwarts swag.
Think of it this way: you secretly always wanted to be on the Quidditch team when you were a kid. And if you had been, no doubt Oliver Wood would have put you through the paces until you had Quidditch plays bleeding out of your eyeballs and you were too tired to stay upright on your broomstick. You were ready for the throw down then when you were a punk kid, so why not now? Just stick on your HP workout shirt and pretend it's all for the glory of your House, and not because you already sunk a year's worth of money into a gym membership and feel too guilty to ignore it! Here, all the Harry Potter gear to break your bank on right now:
1. "Do You Even Leviosa?"
'Do You Even Leviosa?' Tank Top, $22, Etsy
For all you magical CrossFitters out there.
2. Marauders Water Bottle
Marauders Water Bottle, $14, Etsy
Stay hydrated while you manage your mischief.
3. Forbidden Forest Frolicking
No friendly centaurs to hitchhike with on this workout.
4. "I Lift (Harry Potter Books) All Day"
I have actually used Deathly Hallows as a weight for a home workout before and I am not ashamed. (I also once used a bottle of wine, so take that as you will.)
5. Auror Sweater
Can we talk about how cool it would be if Harry Potter were your boss? He never notices ANYTHING, bless his dopey heart. He'd be so chill.
6. Hogwarts House Sweatpants
Harry Potter Unisex Lounge Pants, $30 Think Geek
For winter! (Read: for those days you were only pretending to go to the gym anyway.)
7. House Quidditch Team Shirts
House Quidditch House Shirt, $14, Etsy
You can get whichever House you'd like at the shop (or just get greedy and BUY 'EM ALL).
8. Hogwarts Alumni Hat
Hogwarts Alumni Hat, $14, Etsy
I think I can safely call this the most swag-tastic thing I've ever seen.
9. Accio Equality Tank
Get your S.P.E.W. on at the gym.
10. Dark Mark Leggings
Dark Mark Leggings, $60, Etsy
... Or get your opposite of S.P.E.W. on at the gym? (Too many rounds on the treadmill could turn anyone into a Death Eater.)
11. Hogwarts Staircases Shirt
Hogwarts Stair Cases Shirt, $28, Look Human
And climb down them to get to the kitchens. #HufflepuffLife.
12. Harry Potter Athletic Socks
Harry Potter Athletic Socks, $12, JC Penney
I am HIGH on the mix 'n match potential.

How else are you going to cart around all your rad Potter workout gear?
