During the recent COVID-19 pandemic, fitness lovers across the globe found themselves isolated at home, leading to an increase in at-home workouts, equipment purchases, and home gym setups. With more and more people accumulating a stockpile of fitness equipment, it may be hard to figure out gift ideas for your fitness-loving friends and family as we come into the holiday season. However, there is a gift out there for everyone, no matter how much equipment they already have! Below are some ideas on what to buy the fitness lover who seems to have everything.
It’s no secret that finding the motivation to exercise is often one of the most challenging parts of any fitness routine. An inexpensive item often overlooked by gym junkies is a fitness journal, which is a great way to tackle exercise procrastination. By gifting a fitness journal, the recipient can set fitness goals, track their progress, and maintain a schedule of classes and workout regimes to help keep them on track and motivated.
Unique Massage Tool
Massage guns and handheld percussion massagers have seen a significant increase in popularity, and it’s safe to say that the fitness lover in your life probably already has at least one of these devices in their kit. And although they are popular, there are many other unique and often overlooked massage tools available. A cryosphere massage ball combines heat therapy, cryotherapy, and massage therapy to provide targeted muscle relief and is more portable than a typical massage gun. Alternatively, acupressure mats work by stimulating blood flow and using acupressure points to reduce muscle tension. And although they look terrifying, they are a unique gift idea.
If it seems like the exercise lover in your life truly has everything, a thoughtful gift idea is personalized equipment. Water bottles, gym towels, and gym bags personalized with the recipient’s name are aesthetically pleasing gifts and can help the recipient find their belongings in a sea of water bottles and bags!
Health and Fitness Classes
It is safe to assume that any fitness lover seeks to improve themselves, constantly pushing themselves further to try and reach their potential. By gifting one or more fitness classes that they don’t already include in their regime, you can encourage them to try something new. If the person is a gym junkie, try gifting them some yoga classes! If they only do Pilates, maybe some vouchers for a boxing class can help them achieve their fitness goals. Even if it is not what they would typically do, you never know, they might enjoy it!
Fitness Membership Payments
If you are struggling to come up with a gift idea for the fitness lover in your life, you can’t go wrong with gifting a few months of their gym or fitness class membership. The financial component of gyms and fitness classes is typically the biggest hindrance associated with people’s decisions to join. Removing the financial strain associated with their workouts can help them stay focused on their end goals, and they are sure to be grateful for the contribution!
