As we start a new year, many of us have goals for 2018: eat healthier, perform better in the workplace, purchase a home, get fit, etc. For each of these goals, there are specific steps that, if taken, will make attaining the desired result actually doable. 

When it comes to getting fit, it's important to have the appropriate clothing, as the wrong material or design of clothes can leave us feeling more fatigued that usual or sweatier than we should be. Luckily, there are specially designed materials that are great for exercising, as they can help wick away moisture or even allow you to feel cooler as you exercise. 

If you're ready to revamp your workout clothes, here are 15 mighty independent sports wear stores in Chicago ready to help.
