7 Great Gift Ideas for The Fitness Fanatic

gym gifts

The best gifts are wonderful because they’re personal and fit right into the person’s life—either as luxury or pure great utility. We recently shared general gift ideas that get people moving, but this list is more about the gym enthusiast who spends lots of time exercising. Support their interest and they’ll be even more thankful!

sports massageSports Massage

Because something is always sore, and massage can be very therapeutic. Especially if you’re working toward a big goal, like a marathon or fitness competition. Help ease their bodies and mind with a deep tissue massage that focuses on areas of the body that are overused and stressed.


warm wireless headphones

Warm Wireless Headphones

Because the new iPhone 7 doesn’t have a headphone jack. And your fitness fanatic friend doesn’t let a little unpleasant weather stop them from taking that jog, bike ride or other outdoor adventure! Make the activity a little more enjoyable by keeping them warm and entertained.


yoga mat

Stylish Yoga Mat

Because fitness is more fun with some personal flair. Skip the standard one-colored mat and go for something a little more creative to really feel at home while they hone their zen.


dry shampoo

Dry Shampoo

Because exercise often needs to be squeezed into a busy schedule. That makes dry shampoo essential. There are many options on the market; Suave Keratin Infusion is among “The Best Dry Shampoos” recommended by InStyle.



Word Lock

Because we have enough numbers to remember! And valuable technology and other possessions to protect. Help keep them safe in a bag or locker with a less common but equally handy personal lock.


muscle rub

Muscle Rub

Because topical muscle relief is a nice alternative to regular icing and heating. Consider an organic option that relies on natural ingredients to stimulate circulation and relax nerve pain. It’s a little “spa” treatment in a bottle.


water bottleUtility Water Bottle

Because hydration plus utility is a win-win! Every fitness junkie has a variety of water bottles, but the ones with added smart features like a special compartment for your key, ID, and cash makes it even more helpful.
