Top 10 Gifts For The Fitness Chick
It’s not always easy shopping for other people- even when you know them really well! Pampering products, gift certificates and clothes are always great options but sometimes you want something a bit more. If you’ve in search of the perfect gift for a woman who loves fitness, you’re in luck!
I am definitely the fit chick. Meaning, I live and breathe my workouts. I don’t dread them. Actually it’s the opposite, I really love them! So it may come as no surprise that if you buy my any sort of gift fitness related I’m going to love it- really!
Some people are naturally hard to shop for- my husband is one of them. He either buys everything himself or her is so darn picky it’s impossible to pick out a gift for him.
On the other hand, some people think that buying gym gifts is a bit offensive. You’re almost telling the person that they should work out. But I can’t stress enough that this isn’t the case!
If you’re buying a gift for someone who really and truly loves to be active (not necessarily go to the gym), they will adore anything related to fitness – and any of the gift options below!
Dumbbell Energy Stone Bracelet
Sometimes, you just need the reminder that you are strong, and fit and absolutely perfect- and this bracelet does that for me!
This gift requires you knowing a bit more about the person than a standard work friend. Do they work out at home? At a gym? What types of workouts? Personally, for anyone who loves fitness- specifically who works out at home or travels a lot, Red resistance bands, a Green mini band or TRX are all amazing options. You can check out more reasons why here.
Bands especially are extremely cost effective and versatile. So your receiver may just enjoy trying a new type of workout!
Psst: Amazon is awesome but my favorite choice is snagging deals from prosourcefit.com and you can grab a discount if you use code mamabear15
A New Gym Bag
If you’re girlfriend is a gym goer (versus working out at home) this gift is extremely awesome. While gym bags can be a tricky buy but oh so amazing when you get one! There’s a ton of different options out there so shop around for what might suit her best. A big duffle? A yoga bag? A small purse like bag? You may have to do some homework here.
Below are three of my favorites though as they provide a decent amount of room, they’re simple and best of all.. they won’t break your budget!
You cannot go wrong with workout clothes for someone! I absolutely love getting new gym clothes as not only does it keep me motivated but it’s pretty much all I wear outside the gym too.
If your friend is a lifter or just insanely awesome, check out juststrong.com for some awesome clothes! Code Shalsto10 saves you a few bucks 😉
Shoes are an amazing gift but you also need to know you’re friend! Weight lifting shoes and running shoes are extremely different and one shouldn’t be used for the other.
Music Gift Card
Give the gift of music with an ITunes Gift Card! Having your own music during your workout is what keeps you pumped and going so new beats is always a nice gift.
Custom Fitness Basket
This one is for anyone who loves to DIY their gifts! Make your special someone a homemade “Fitness Gift Basket”. Some awesome (and cost friendly) ideas to include in the basket are:
- Protein powder samples or bars
- Dry shampoo
- Hair elastics
- Ear phones
- ITunes gift card
- New water bottle
- Workout socks
Barbell Plate Necklace
If you’re looking for something simple but cute to remind your friend that they ROCK this necklace does just that.
It’s a cute necklace for any female who loves strength and weights! My hubby got one for me a few years back and it helps remind me I’m strong.
Protein Powder/Other Supplements
When someone buys me protein powder I love them forever. Mainly, because it can get expensive! If you know your friend well (or can take a peek into their cupboards) but them a big jug of their favorite protein powder (or superfood!). It seems silly but this is really an awesome gift for any gym rat!
Many people don’t want to go to the gym because they’re not sure what to do (I know that’s how I felt initially!).
Setting someone up with either custom designed programs or at least a plan, can go a long way.
On my training website I offer custom programs which are geared towards whatever you have to work with (a gym, bodyweight at home, bands etc). Place doesn’t matter, consistency does.
Specific Workout Gear
Depending on the style of workout your friend is into you can get them some helpful tools! Below are a few examples for you
For the runner
For The Lifter
