Would you rather run a lap than try to find the perfect gift for the fitness fanatic in your life? We get it. Shopping for gifts can be extremely stressful. Don’t worry though. This year, we’ve done all the legwork for you. Pick up one of these items the next time you go out and your holiday shopping will be more relaxing than a Group Centergy class.
Leaving a gym bag in the car is the best way to ensure you’ll hit the gym after work. Is your friend using an old backpack or purse to tote around their fitness gear? It’s time for an upgrade. These aren’t ordinary bags; they’ve got some really cool features. For example, some bags have pockets that can handle your hot tools after getting ready in the locker room. Others have a detachable bag for your keys so you never have to worry about switching purses.
Reusable Water Bottle
This gift saves the planet and your sanity all at once. Perfect for any budget, reusable water bottles can be a stocking stuffer or a show-stopping gift. Bottles are made from colorful plastic, metal, or glass and have features like water filters and fruit infusers.
When you look good, you feel good. Sure, you get this feeling after a great workout, but you can also get it when you step onto the treadmill in a brand new outfit. If you know your fitness fiend’s size and style preference, treat him or her to a new pair of running tights or athletic socks. Do you really want to spoil her? Consider purchasing a new pair of sneakers with her favorite workout in mind. Keep in mind that shoes made for running are different than shoes that should be worn for Zumba class or weight lifting.
Snack Box Subscription
While this may not technically be fitness related, who doesn’t love delicious and healthy snacks? You know what the best part is? You don’t even have to go to the store to pick one up. There are dozens of snack box subscriptions out there that cater to any dietary restriction. Some of our favorites include NatureBox, Love With Food, Bestowed Box, and Yogi Surprise.
We’re not taking about the ones that come with your cellphone. A good playlist can make or break your workout, so investing in a good pair of headphones can make all the difference in achieving fitness goals. There are dozens of different kinds of headphones on the market including wireless ones that don’t get in the way of your bicep curl and earbuds specifically made for athletes.
Fitness trackers are becoming a staple in any serious gym-goer’s closet. No matter your budget or their workout preference, there is a fitness tracker out there for everyone. If your friend loves to walk her dog around the neighborhood, you don’t need to splurge for a GPS-enabled device; a simple pedometer will do. Does your friend love lifting weights and taking spin classes? Try a tracker that has a heart rate monitor. The majority of fitness trackers on the market now work with your smartphone and are integrated into your favorite apps such as Myfitnesspal.
