What do you get someone who loves working out? Today I’m sharing the top 5 best Christmas gifts for fitness enthusiasts. From a beginner to a gym buff, I have everyone covered if the person you’re shopping for loves working out and being active.
BEST GIFTS FOR FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS
When someone is a fitness fanatic, they tend to be pretty serious about it. With each passing year, more and more people are becoming devoted to getting in shape.
But if this year is going to be their first, you’ll want to hook them up with some good equipment and gifts before they start, so that they’ll have a smooth ride developing a passion for it.
As a disclaimer, I would only suggest these fitness gifts if the person you’re shopping for is already into working out or has started on their fitness journey. Don’t try to pressure someone into working out, that will only backfire. Just saying.

The first major piece of gym equipment they need is some proper workout clothes. Nobody comes to the gym in jeans and a polo shirt, so if they don’t already have good workout clothes, they’ll need to get some. That’s where this gift guide comes in!

You can get tanks, breathable shirts, lightweight shorts or pants, and so on. Typically, people like their gym clothes to be light and water resistant, so they don’t start sticking when they get sweaty.
Whether they are going to the gym, a group exercise class or working out at home, I’ve found that when you’re wearing nice workout clothes it just helps you feel better and even workout harder. Maybe that’s just me but just like dressing up for workout, you just feel pulled together and more professional. Same for working out.
WORKOUT ESSENTIALS FOR HIM

Many people don’t have a lot of extra space to accommodate a workout machine, so these dumbbells that can be dialed to several weights are a great space saver.
Those dumbbells are great for a more experienced user, if you’re shopping for a beginner this weight set is a good start and doesn’t take up too much room either.
A set of kettle bell weights are a great gift for a fitness enthusiast.
Smart devices are becoming increasingly popular in the gym. With brands like Fitbit on the rise, (I love my Fitbit by the way) people are now using smart watches in order to track things like their heart rate and the amount of calories they burn. These are very useful tools, and they even double as a normal, nice looking watch when they’re not in the gym.
Almost everyone likes to wear headphones when they work out. It blocks out noise in the gym, lets you listen to music, and helps keep you focused.
A good pair of wireless, waterproof earbuds or headphones would be a very welcome gift for any fitness enthusiast. You’ll want to find something wireless, so that it won’t get in the way, and waterproof, so that sweat doesn’t interfere with the electronics.
Finally, after they work out, they’re going to be sore. One of the best ways to help with sore muscles is to use a quality foam roller. Foam rollers are high density cylinders of foam or sometimes rubber that you can use to roll out your muscles and recover faster.
If your gym enthusiast gets sore frequently, you can bet that this will be a good gift for them. A massage subscription or gift card is another cure for those sore muscles. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer!
