First, it showcases an assortment of gifts that’ll be surefire hits with your friends or family; plus, it’ll give you a few ideas on how to give yourself a gift of good health. Here are 10 fitness inspired gift ideas for the gym lover on your list!


1. Gym Bag

Ladies // Gents
Arrive in style with these gym bags! Under Armour provides stylish and functional bags for your gym needs. These duffels will fit a second outfit, shower gear, extra shoes, a towel, and more!

2. Anytime Fitness iPhone 5 Case

Grab this protective shell for your phone! Who knows what could happen when you go to the club with your precious iPhone – you’ll want to protect it from being dropped on the floor from the treadmill or in the weights area!

3. TRX Men’s and Ladies TRX Tees

Show your love for TRX in the gym with these tees! Made with cotton-modal blend, these tees resist shrinking, odor, and color loss. Which is perfect, especially after all that sweating!

4. Weightlifting Gloves

These gloves are distinguished by a set of TechGel comfort pads, which mold comfortably to your hands to protect them from the stresses of active training. The unique Comfort Tech fabrics remain supple and comfortable even after cleaning.

5. Fitness Magazine Subscription

Runner’s World, Bicycling Magazine, Yoga Magazine, Muscle and Fitness, Women’s Health, Men’s Health, and Prevention Magazine are just a handful of amazing fitness magazines that’ll tickle your gym lover’s mental muscle. These are priced at an extremely affordable cost… and the gift lasts all year! A monthly update on your favorite health hobby is a must during ANY time of season!

6. Fitbit Flex or Force

Stylish, sleek, cutting edge, and agonizingly functional – this latest piece of tech tracks the amount of steps you take, distance covered, intensity of your workout, and calories burned. It even tracks your sleep patterns and can be used as a wake-up alarm! They also tell time, come in extremely rad color schemes, and hook up with smart devices through Bluetooth.

7. New Gym Shoes

Ladies // Gents
Tattered, old gym shoes aren’t helping your friend or family members. Help them by investing in some stylish new shoes they can wear while they workout. The listed options are just two examples of the millions of options. I would recommend taking a quick trip to your local running shop and telling them about the individual receiving the gift. They’ll guide you in the right direction.

8. GoToob Travel Size Bottle

Add all of your favorite hair care, skincare, and beauty products to your gym bag with these bottles. They are carry-on approved so they have a dual purpose for the active traveler! These bottles ensure your goods stay inside with no-drip valves and can easily dispense gels and lotions. The large openings are easy to fill and clean; and the integrated rubber seals prevent leaks!

9. Yurbuds Inspire Aqua Earbuds

If you’ve ever been to the gym and started running on a treadmill and your earbuds have fallen out, you’re not alone. No more falling out with these sturdy yet cute earbuds! The buds are sweat-, water-, and germ-resistant. They won’t budge; and they also work well in the weight lifting area!

10. BlenderBottle

The patented BlenderBottle shaker cup is the best portable mixer, simply because it works. No batteries, no cord, no hassle. It’s powerful enough to mix the thickest ingredients with ease. Use it in the kitchen, at the office, at the gym, when you travel, or on the go.

BONUS: Personal Training Gift Certificate

How many of us know somebody that has a gym membership but NEVER uses it? Then, in a spurt of motivation, they start to go for a week or two and then fall flat again. How many of us have BEEN that person? A lot of times it’s not lack of motivation to change, its lack of know-how! By getting a loved one some personal training sessions you are essentially giving them a “health tutor.” It’s a great gift to ask for and get! Double bonus!

Healthy Holidays to All!
