Holiday shopping is in full swing as we are quickly approaching December. If you have someone on your list who enjoys being active, check out my top 7 fitness gift ideas for inspiration.
#1 Foam Roller
A foam roller or stretch band is a gift that will be used on a regular basis for post-workout relief. It is a great way to help with recovery of sore muscles. Consider getting something compact if they tend to workout away from home so they can take it in their gym bag or on their travels. Reehut 2-in-1 Foam Roller. Trigger Point massage for Painful, Tight muscles + Smooth Rollers for Rehabilitation! FREE USER E-BOOK + FREE CARRY CASE! Black
#2 Bluetooth Headphones
Bluetooth headphones are a must for anyone who enjoys listening to music while they workout. It is great to not be wired to your phone as you are doing cardio on a machine, abs or lifting weights.

#3 Workout Clothes
New workout clothes are always a welcomed gift. A recent trend in women’s apparel are the graphic tees and tanks with workout related quotes on them. One of my favorite workout tees is pictured below with the phrase ‘girl boss’ by Under Armour.

#4 Fitness Tracker
On the upper end of the price range are fitness tracker. I love my FitBit Alta. It helps me stay accountable for moving throughout the day, tracks my workouts and my sleep. If the person on your list enjoys cardio, consider getting a tracker that monitors heart rate. Fitbit Alta HR, Black, Small (US Version)
#5 Gym Bag
A new gym bag is also a great gift idea. It is something that we usually forget to buy for ourselves but is used on a daily basis. Keep in mind the size of the bag based on the type of equipment and items they transport back and forth. You could also pair it with air fresheners as that is something that I also keep in my bag for obvious reasons. Adidas Defender Extra Small Duffel Bag (Black/Pink)
#6 Phone Armband or Pouch
A phone armband is great for people who like to do cardio outside or keep their phone with them at the gym. You can also find bands that can be worn around your waist and take into account having a case on your phone. Water Resistant Cell Phone Armband: 5.2 Inch Case for iPhone 8, 7, 6, 6S, SE, 5, 5C, 5S, and Galaxy S5, Google Pixel – Adjustable Reflective Velcro Workout Band, Key Holder & Screen Protector
#7 Fitness Subscription Box
The last gift idea is a subscription to a fitness box. You can find a fitness box for just about any type of activity they enjoy: yoga, running, outdoors, etc. These boxes can be customized and typically come on a monthly basis.
