Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! While some may think it has turned into a commercial holiday, it’s still a great time to show that special someone that you care. Unsure of what to get the health conscious, fitness individual in your life? Below are a few gift ideas that your fitness guy or gal would enjoy.
Fitbit: This is a great gift for those that love cardio. It counts your steps to help hold you accountable for those 10,000 we should get in each day. You’re able to compete with family and friends to see who gets in the most steps. As a bonus, it even tracks your sleep patterns.
Polar watch: This watch is great for ALL of your activity, not just your steps so this is great if the active person in your life enjoys other activities such as weight training, swimming, cycling, etc. Polar is known for their heart rate monitoring accuracy. It tracks your sleep patterns. It even notifies you of your inactivity to help you stay motivated!
Beats: Everyone that works out deserves an awesome pair of wireless headphones. The beats are perfect. They allow you the freedom to complete your workout without wires getting in your way. They’re also sweat resistant. In addition, the headphones provide excellent sound quality to power you through your workouts.
Workout gear: Who doesn’t love new workout gear? Maybe it’s a girl thing, but new workout gear motivates me to go to the gym and do what I need to do. If you’re going to workout, you may as well look cute doing it. I reviewed these leggings last month and they are still, hands down, the best workout leggings ever! Your fitness girl will definitely love these!
Resistance bands: These are perfect for the traveler who still needs to get in their workout or the person that enjoys an at home workout. They come with a carrying case which makes it perfect for travel. They also come with a workout chart so you’ll learn how to use each band effectively.
Gym bag: A gym bag is an awesome gift for him or her. I’m not sure what you look for in a gym bag, but I look for space and pockets. These gym bags have both! There’s plenty of room for shoes, clothes, equipment, shaker bottles, etc. There’s also side pocket where you can place your dirty gym clothes after your workout.
Spa/massage: If none of the options above seem appealing to you, you can never go wrong with booking a massage at a local spa. Chances are, your fitness person has sore muscles and a massage would be a great relief!
Hope this little guide helps you find the perfect gift for the fitness person in your life!
