Workout Games. Make exercise routines fun by incorporating workout games. Games like Fitness Dice, Exercise Cards, or The HIIT Game can add spark to any workout session. These activities are also a great way to get the whole family involved in fitness.
Jewelry Travel Case. Keep your rings and other jewelry safe and protected while you’re exercising. Whether at the gym or on the run, a jewelry travel case can help. Choose one like the Ring Thing keychain, which holds multiple rings and easily clips to your keys or gym bag.
Moisture Wicking Socks. We all joke about gifting socks, but these will surely be a hit. From preventing frostbite to blisters, moisture-wicking socks are necessary and inexpensive must-haves. Gift a pack like these women’s or men’s options and have your exerciser set for the season.
The Home Workout Extraordinaire
Folding Treadmill. A folding treadmill is a great option when you’re looking for space-saving workout equipment at home. This smaller option can be used under a desk or in front of a TV, and then easily stored so it doesn’t become a coat hanger. Look for an option like the Sperax Treadmill, which has a foldable handle with a phone/tablet holder.
Under Desk Elliptical. Add more movement to your workout with an under-the-desk elliptical. These machines, such as the one from DeskCycle, are compact, moveable, and easily fit under a desk so you can pedal away while working. It’s also great for those needing a low-impact, seated exercise option.
The Outdoor Enthusiast
Running Vest. Keep your exerciser safe and hydrated with a running vest. The Revali Running Vest has pouches for phones, keys, and other small essentials. It also has a pocket for an included water bottle and reflective patches for visibility.
Pickleball Paddles. Pickleball is one of the trendiest activities of the year. Surprise your exerciser with a new paddle. Or better yet, grab a Pickleball Paddle Two-Pack and join them!
The Total Tracker
Smart Jump Rope. Jump ropes aren’t just for kids anymore. Add intensity and data tracking to your cardio workout with a Smart Jump Rope, like the one from Renpho. Track your jumps on the LCD screen and find data analysis in a corresponding phone app.
Heart Rate Monitor. Get accurate heart rate measurements with a heart rate monitor. Wahoo Fitness has created a heart rate monitor strap that can pair with multiple devices and give real-time data. These monitors can help with understanding workout intensity and body response.
Rest + Recovery
Cooling Towel. Stay cool on hot days with a cooling towel. Towel off excess sweat or dampen and shake it to use it for cooling. Grab a multi-pack of these towels so they can easily be on hand.
Massage Ball. Pinpoint massage can help relieve tense and sore muscles with a massage ball. The Wave Solo from Therabody is designed to aid recovery with multiple vibration settings and connects to the Therabody app to personalize recovery.
We wish you a happy, healthy, and active holiday season!
