There’s probably someone in your life who constantly talks about their marathon training or always quotes their Peloton instructor – and these gifts are for them. Even if it’s not your thing, the best fitness gifts can help someone keep up with their workout, recover from a long run, or make exercising more fun.
If you’re ready to splurge, there are more than a few great pieces of exercise equipment out there, like the SoulCycle bike, the MIRROR, or the Hydrow rowing machine. However, if they’re ready to go with their gym setup, things like gym clothes, accessories, or even a month’s worth of classes on a platform like Alo Moves make great gifts.
Take a look below at some of the best fitness gifts to give this holiday season (and maybe make a few yourself if you have 2023 goals you’re preparing to smash).
1. CALPAK Luka Duffle, $96 (Orig. $120)
The CALPAK Luka Duffle might be ideal for travel, but it’s also a great sports bag. It has a separate shoe compartment for storing smelly sneakers or sweaty clothes, as well as nine pockets for storing toiletries, fresh clothes and more. You can also use this bag for traveling or working. Get it in this bold metallic color or seven other subtle colors (like light blue or standard black).
2. Bala Bangles Wrist and Ankle Weights, 1 LB, $55
The Bala Bangles are gentle wrist and ankle weights that come in multiple colors and patterns (the set pictured above is part of Bala’s collaboration with New Balance). They may only weigh a pound each, but you will feel the burn. Wear them on a walk, on a run, on a bike ride, during Pilates, while folding laundry, whatever.
3. Theragun mini, $179 (Orig. $199)
Therabody’s Theragun was one of the first percussive massagers to help people treat muscle pain and chronic pain by increasing blood flow to support the body’s natural recovery process.
Therabody has several varieties of its massage guns, but the Theragun Mini is the cheapest and most portable. It measures approximately 5.5 inches wide and weighs 1.2 pounds. Make no mistake, this device is very powerful. It has three speeds: 1750, 2100 and 2400 percussions per minute. Turn it on and off and change the speed with a button that lights up when on and turns red when it needs charging. But you don’t have to charge it much. It has a battery life of 150 minutes and only takes about 80 minutes to recharge.
4. Powerbeats Pro True Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, $179.99 (Orig. $249.99)
Music can be a great motivator in a person’s workout. Powerbeats Pro Wireless clips on the ear to stay in place no matter how fast you move. Each sweat- and water-resistant earbud features volume and track controls and up to nine hours of listening time. Get them in navy, black, off-white or pink.
5. Oura Gen3 Ring, Horizon Silver, $349
The Oura Ring is a sleek wellness tracker. It can track sleep, heart rate, activity levels, and even how much time a person spends each day in a relaxed state. Plus, it has up to seven days of battery life. People love that you don’t have to set specific modes for it to work – it automatically detects when you’re moving or taking a nap.
The Horizon is its latest style, and it’s a little sleeker. However, it is also a bit more expensive. The original Heritage design starts at $299.
6. lululemon The Hot/Cold Bottle 17oz, $38
This lululemon water bottle keeps drinks cold or hot, meaning it’s great for cold water at the gym or sipping hot tea on a morning walk. Plus, its one-touch lid makes it easy to drink with one hand.
7. APL TechLoom Zipline Running Shoe, $240-$320
APL sneakers rebounded so much that the NBA banned them in 2010. Today, its incredibly comfortable TechLoom Zipline running shoe is one of its best sellers. Wear it for running, weight training or walking the dog. Its breathable and supportive fabric keeps the foot stable no matter where it goes.
