Most people know someone that is obsessed with fitness. Working out and keeping in shape makes people feel good, look good and stay healthy. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. As the holiday season approaches, there is an array of different gifts that you may purchase for the fitness enthusiast in your life. Have a look below for a few suggestions that might be up their alley.
Purchase an Experience
Purchasing an experience such as entry to a Tough Mudder race can be a great gift. This gives the recipient something to work towards and covers any monetary costs that might have been stopping them from doing it in the first place.
Or better yet, join them in the experience for some bonding time and a way to get fit yourself!
Pay Their Yearly Fees
The most obvious and efficient fitness gift is a membership at the local club or gym. The fitness fanatic in your life is most likely a member somewhere already so covering their yearly fee is a pleasant and easy way to gift this holiday season.
If you want to gift a bit out of their comfort zone, try doing a monthly membership to a more specialized place like the local rock climbing gym or golf club. If they’ve ever wanted to try something but have hesitated due to costs, this is the perfect solution.
Another alternative is to give them a monthly subscription to fitness services such as Classpass or Fitreserve. These companies allows users to participate in any member gym or studio class within their network without having to sign up for a membership with that specific place. There are hundreds of studios/ gyms within the network so chances are they’ll never get bored trying to find something new to try.
If your fitness fan is anything like us, they’re probably coveting the newest fitness gadgets every month or regularly researching what is out in the market to try. Treat your giftee with a monthly subscription to fitness focused gift boxes. Companies such as BuffBoxx, and Bulu Box offer monthly subscriptions that will send the recipient a new delivery each month of sample-sized goodies to try out. Apparel companies like Fabletics will actually send new apparel with each monthly delivery to keep their wardrobe fresh and exciting. This is a great gift for anyone who is always on the lookout for the newest trends without wanting to commit to the full purchase price.
In some ways, gifting for a fitness friend can be the best kind of gifting you do this season. Not only are you promoting a healthy habit, but you might find something of interest along the way that will kick start your own healthy fitness habits into the new year.
