Finding healthy gifts for fitness lovers can be tricky. If you work in the fitness industry, then you’ll probably have lots of gym rat colleagues or health-conscious friends to buy for. Traditional presents like chocolates are out of the question so which fitness gifts should you choose instead?
In this article – we’ve curated 15 of the best gifts for fitness lovers with options to suit every budget…
And yes, it’s totally ok if you plan to buy them for someone else but end up keeping some yourself – we won’t tell!
Healthy Gifts For Less Than $10
If you’re looking for cheap gifts for fitness lovers then here are some budget-friendly options…
Side note – we may earn a small commission if you click some of these links but this isn’t why we included them. We’ve picked all of these gifts because we think they’re 100% awesome – no other reasons!
Ordering a workout gift basket can be the perfect present for your gym-loving colleagues. There aren’t many options on Amazon but we’ve found that the very best selection is available through Cratejoy.
This website is dedicated to subscription boxes and offers 150+ fitness gift basket options to choose from. It includes Keto baskets, RunLocker boxes, and a collection by Om Babes.
⇒ Subscription boxes start at $5 per month and make ideal fitness gifts for gym lovers, yoga fans, or avid runners. Plus, subscribe to their newsletter and you can get 50% off boxes!
No need to count calories – these 7 colour-coded containers help you portion out exactly the right amount of food so you never eat too much or too little.
It’s the simplest way to manage nutrition and food intake without the hassle of scales or tracking tools. This means it’s one of the best fitness gifts you can get for people who want to manage their weight.
⇒ Amazon has a wide range of portion control containers to choose from. We like the look of these Kitchen Craft containers (£5.99) but the Beach Body option may be more practical since the rectangular pots can be stored more compactly (£3.48 UK). If you’re in the USA, then you’ll get the best price by ordering from Beach Body directly for $9.99 (vs $25 on Amazon).
Gym gloves are ideal gifts for gym lovers who enjoy powerlifting, bodybuilding, or CrossFit training. They protect their hands so that they can work out for longer and maintain grip for better technique.
Look for breathable materials that are machine-washable so they can be easily cleaned alongside their gym kit. They’re available in lots of styles and colour options so you can tailor the gloves to their style.
Gifts for Fitness Lovers – Under $25
These gift ideas for fitness lovers are less than $25 making them ideal for those with a mid-range budget.
Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
The large 32oz water bottle features a full-length infuser basket that can hold fresh fruit that flavours your water. Add lemon, orange, berries, or herbs for a deliciously tasty and refreshing drink on-the-go.
Any Book By The Body Coach
We particularly like his ‘Cooking for Friends and Family’ book – it’s ideal for anyone who finds it tricky to balance being healthy with cooking for a crowd. It features 100+ delicious and nutritious recipes that are perfect for sharing with the special people in your life.
All of the recipes are simple to prep and organised into reduced-carb or post-workout chapters, which aligns with many people’s approach to healthy eating. Also, look out for his veggie cookbook.
Protein Powder Gift Set
High-quality protein powders make perfect gifts for fitness lovers. If you know the brand that your recipient prefers then it’s best to get them what they like.
But if you aren’t sure then there are plenty of effective options in both dairy and vegan varieties. Pulsin, MisFits, and Nuzest all offer tasty protein powders packed with BCAAs to aid lean muscle development.
⇒ Head to the Pulsin website for starter kits (£13) that contain protein powders, brownies, and bars, plus some recipes too (not available on Amazon).
Health & Fitness Gifts For Under $75
If you have a slightly bigger budget then you can get some really exciting workout gifts for fitness lovers. Here are a few ideas…
How about getting your loved one some super-stylish sports leggings – ideal for the gym, running or yoga. Think Lululemon quality at a fraction of the price.
Fabletics was founded by Kate Hudson and features funky prints and unique colours for people who like to workout in style. They’re perfect fitness gifts for anyone who likes to look good in the gym.
Printed Exercise or Yoga Mats
Exercise mats are practical gifts for fitness enthusiasts who like to work out at home. But they can also look really boring and don’t always inspire or motivate people to be active. This is where printed mats come in…
They feature stylish designs, some of which have been created by famous artists and can be proudly displayed (instead of hidden away in a cupboard).
Gym Gifts For Fitness Enthusiasts Over $100
At the pricier end of the scale, you can get amazing gifts for fitness lovers that are sure to keep them happy. Here are some fitness gift ideas for $100 and up…
Fitness bands can also remind you to stand up on an hourly basis so that you meet your 10,000 step target. In addition to physical activity, Fitbits can track the quality and duration of your sleep which is crucial for overall health. They also look sleeker and more stylish than a bulky fitness watch which adds to their appeal.
On-demand workouts are hugely popular right now since they’re accessible and convenient from wherever you are.
For people who love to exercise but struggle to find time due to work, travel, or family commitments, on-demand videos are perfect. There’s a range of companies that offer these services, including Les Mills, Beach Body (Insanity, P90X, PiYo etc), and Aaptiv.
