Happy Friday! We almost made it through a full week back after a Holiday break. And only 24 days until Christmas! If you’re like me, I hold off on my holiday shopping until probably about two weeks before. But I’m always making lists of ideas for family and friends in my phone. Today I’m linking up with Heather for Friday Favorites and sharing A Gift Guide for the Fitness Lover. Don’t forget to get a lovely gift for your fitness friend’s personal trainer. Helping your loved ones get the best professional fitness support is important for them to reach their goals. From punching bag stands and boxing gloves to the right workout equipment, any exercise or fitness-related gift is sure to go down a treat with someone who loves being active. Plus, when you’re buying lots of equipment at once, especially if you’re creating a home gym, it can become a little pricey. Giving the gift of gym equipment or fitness products can ease those costs and make being active more affordable. I know that my friend told me she struggled to find a gift for my trainer so let’s continue this lovely idea and celebrate the professionals that help us all to keep in shape. Having the right workout gear to use with your personal trainer is also important so make sure you can choose from quality workout gear to essential equipment to have in your home gym. There are so many great gift ideas for the fitness lover in your life.



S’well Reusable Bottle // Kettlebell Set // Bluetooth Wireless Headphones

Foam Roller // Fitbit Charge // Dry Shampoo

Ban.do Work it Out Gym Bag // Weighted Jump Rope // ASICS Athletic Socks

You could also get something a little festive and funny at the same time – instead of simply a water bottle, get something customised to the exercise at hand. A round grip bottle can be easier to drink from during workouts. In a similar vein, you could get some photo socks for them to use either during or after their workouts, so they can either always know which pair is for the gym, or at the very least stay crisp and clean post-workout!


Alo Moto Leggings // Alo Accelerate Leggings

Fabletics Sign up and become a VIP member and receive great rates on complete and stylish workout outfits.

Lululemon Fly Away Tamer Headband. I am picky when it comes to headbands and this is one of my favorites.

Other Ideas

A massage

Classpass, a monthly membership that connects you to studios for fitness classes

Flywheel or Soul Cycle Spin Classes

GPS Activity Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor

You could even consider the Fitbit Charge 2. Even though they’re more expensive than the original charge, they are packed with more features and look so stylish. It all depends whether you really want to treat that special someone!

Just thinking about gifts puts me in the holiday mood. So happy we got our Christmas tree up last weekend and I can enjoy some shopping and cookie baking this weekend 🙂

    Awesome ideas!!!! I love gifts like the swell water bottle because it’s something everyone would want, but is too expensive to spend on yourself!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Totally agree about the water bottle! There are certain things I would never buy for myself, so I add them to a wish list. Good luck with your holiday shopping!
