Give the Gift of Fitness this Holiday Season

by Jackie on December 13, 2013

Give something meaningful this year and give the gift of wellness! Check out these cool gifts to give your family and friends this holiday.


Fitness Trackers

Logging workouts helps you stay motivated, so why not gift a fitness tracker?  There are a bunch of cool wristbands available from several manufacturers in fun colors. Most track activity, steps, distance and calories burned. Some even track sleep.  Check out the Fitbug Orb, the Fitbit Flex, the Up Band, or the Nike Fuel Band which range anywhere from $50 to $150.



If you really want to give a gift that wows, consider a treadmill for the cardio lover in your life. There many different options available to fit most budgets.  Do your research to make sure you get a quality product.


Water Bottle

So long plastic and environmentally harmful water bottles!  With so many choices, you’ll find one to fit anyone’s style.  Choose a water bottle that’s BPA/BPS-free and dishwasher safe.


A Personal Trainer

Give you loved one the gift of a fitness with a training session(s) from a personal trainer.  They will not only get fitness tips and body assessments, but they will also be inspired by new moves and routines.



Many people love their juicers, and if you know someone who has been wanting one of these appliances, why not surprise them with one for the holidays.  There are plenty sites to research juicers online to make sure you get a quality juicer for your money.



Old pro or newbie, isn’t a bike under the Christmas tree the perfect gift for “kids” of any age?


JumpJump Rope

An inexpensive gift for someone who wants to try something new in their cardio routine. It’s the perfect gift for the fit-minded person who travels a lot and even a good jump rope will only set you back around $20.


New Running Shoes

What runner would not love a new pair of supportive running shoes!  Or a gift card to their favorite running store so they can pick them out themselves.


MP3 Player

A fun fitness gift would be an MP3 player and a gift card to download new workout music!


A New Cookbook

Do you have a friend or family member trying to eat healthier?  Why not give them some inspiration and new recipe ideas in a great new cookbook!


Yoga Mat

For your Yoga loving friend, she’ll love the extra cushion she gets when exercising on her new mat!



Help them relieve their sore muscles after hard workouts or after that holiday race and give them a gift certificate for a massage appointment.


Gift a Race

Gather a group of friends or family members and give them a fun experience they won’t soon forget.  Check out local races to enter and give your group ample time to train.  Bonus: you get to spend fun bonding time together during the race and while training!


Fitness Magazine Subscription

This is a fun gift that will last them the whole year and also keep them inspired and motivated throughout the year!

I’m a fitness nut. I know what you’re thinking, one of these people who has never been fat a day in her life, and can eat whatever she wants. The truth is I struggled with my weight growing up and lived in a household where everything seemed to be fried. Once I got away from home I realized I had the choice to eat and exercise how I wanted. I’ve gained a lot of insight into working as a personal trainer, and feel I can relate to others that were in my situation. I think if I can do it then you can to, and if you want to start kicking butt then hop on board and lets get started. Jackie’s favorite product is the 10 Day Diet
