Great Gift Ideas for Your Fitness Fan
Regardless of the time of the year, there are frequent occasions for us to shop for a gift, whether it’s a special holiday, birthday, or simply as a gesture of generosity or "thank you." Of course, it's not always easy to know what to give that will be truly appreciated and used by the recipient. Who of us doesn’t have dozens of knick-knacks sitting around the house gathering dust that were gifts from well-meaning friends and family? Next time, why not make your generosity have more impact by giving a gift of good health? If you'd like a few gift ideas for fitness fans on your list, and you’re looking for something your recipient will actually make good use of and that will make their exercise routine easier and more fun, we've got some suggestions for you.
Workout Clothes Are a Good Fit
Gift ideas don't have to stop at equipment and accessories. Gym rats always need more workout clothes. Male or female, there are hundreds of options you can pursue when gifting workout gear. T-shirts featuring funny phrases or your recipient’s favorite fictional characters are always a great bet! Not sure what your recipient likes? You can never go wrong with plain t-shirts and tank-tops. If you aren’t sure what size to get, opt for a gift-card instead. Every fitness fanatic can make great use of a gift-card at their favorite fitness store.
A Fitness Tracker Is a Welcome Gift
It’s the 21st century and technology has seeped into all parts of daily life, from work to play to exercise. When it comes to gift ideas for fitness fans, if you want something that will really dazzle your recipient, a fitness tracker is an excellent option. Fitness trackers fit easily and snugly on the wrist and track physical activity, from distance covered to heart rate, and make for an excellent gift. Fitness trackers are not only a great way to keep track of daily exercise, but serve as additional workout motivation. Fancier trackers also track other vital life activities, such as sleep, making them an all-around useful health accessory. Plus, many look pretty stylish as well.
Consider a Travel Yoga Mat
True fitness fans don’t let their exercise routine get put on hold just because they’re traveling! If you're looking for something to suit the yoga enthusiast on your list, a super-convenient yoga mat that folds up into a small package and tucks away into a suitcase or carry-on for easy air travel is one of our favorite gift ideas. This is a great gift for anyone who travels frequently!
Is It Time For a New Workout Bag?
If your recipient is like most people, he or she simply stuffs their gym gear into the same ratty gym bag that they’ve had since high school or college. Time for an upgrade! A new gear bag is a great gift idea for anyone who regularly goes to the gym. You can find thousands of gym bags in a myriad of styles, sizes and colors to fit anyone on your gift list. Modern gym bags have all kinds of cool ad-ons, like water storage compartments, small hidden pockets to hold valuables, and even laptop computer sleeves!
How About a Kettlebell or Dumbbell?
If your fitness fan happens to lift weights as a part of his or her fitness routine, a new dumbbell or kettlebell is always a welcome addition to the arsenal. Kettlebell training develops strength, power, endurance, and balance. Working with kettlebells will sculpt and tone the entire body, specifically at the core. This is a great option for getting a total body workout in a short amount of time! Find out which kettlebell or dumbbell your gift target is missing, and fill that gap for them. They will thank you!
Protein Bars Are a Healthy Gift
These babies are the treasure of the fitness world. They’re delicious, easy to eat, and packed with protein, nutrients, and other good stuff that’ll give your recipient a great energy boost! They’re a great treat for on-the-go, before or after the gym. Plus, protein bars can be baked, crumbled, nuked (microwaved) and melted into a fantastic variety of fitness-friendly desserts. Buy your special someone a pack of these yummy bars and they’ll come back raving. In terms of flavors, chocolate chip cookie dough, cookies and cream, and peanut butter consistently rank highly among consumers.
Wireless Ear Buds For a Musical Workout
Whether your recipient enjoys listening to music, podcasts or audio books, headphones at the gym are a must. However, as most know, few things are more irritating than trying to get a good workout in while fumbling around with headphones that fall, tangle, and snag. A pair of wireless ear buds are not only functional at the gym, but can be used elsewhere too. A quality pair of earbuds will be prized by any fitness fan in your circle.
