USA! USA! USA! Watching the Winter Olympics is a rare bright spot in this snow-covered dreary winter. In addition to the absolute joy of watching athletes who have worked towards the Olympics their whole lives reach their goal, the Olympics can also serve as inspiration. Who doesn’t want to throw on some red, white, and blue and hit the gym after seeing Team USA kill it in Sochi?

inov-8 Bare-X Lite 150: These are a flag waving sneakerhead’s dream come true! Olympic athletes rack up serious miles in their sneaks, so why not lace up some red, white, and blue kicks and pound out some pavement, or some treadmill if you’re under a few feet of snow.

The North Face ‘Base Camp Crimp – International Collection’ Backpack: Gym bags can run a little on the boring side, but not The North Face Base Camp Crimp International Collection Backpack.
