Whether you are shopping for a friend, a sister, or yourself I am a firm believer that no one can have too much good workout gear! With all the great food that comes with the holidays there is always that guilt that comes along with it. Then BAM it is January and everyone is starting New Years resolutions to get healthy. I am sharing my current long time favorite workout items that also make great gifts for the health obsessed person in your life. A few of these may also be on my wish list, hint hint hubby 😉
1 // A smart scale- I am dying for one of these! I use my regular scale almost daily, especially when I first started trying to lose weight. The smart scale makes it so easy to track progress on your phone or apple watch.
2 // Apple Watch– I have already shared my love for the apple watch in this prior gift guide. I always thought I would hate the apple watch but I honestly now HATE not having it on. I track everything from my workouts, to messages to my sleeping habits and more on my watch.
3 // Workout/Yoga Bag– I am obsessed with my LuluLemon yoga mat. It was an investment but I go to yoga at least once a week and use my mat for other workouts so I have definitely got my moneys worth. I would love a great workout bag for my mat and this is a must for any yoga obsessed person.
4 // Dr. De Headphones– These are another item on my Christmas list. I personally love the rose gold version. I have been running a ton lately and I have heard these are great and actually stay on when you run.
5 // Fun workout Tees– Who doesn’t love a great “sayings” tee? I have no shortage of mom themed tees but I think workout ones are great too. You can find some really cute ones on Thread Tank or on Etsy!
6 // Nike Running Pants– I live in yoga/work out pants 95% of the time and any that are high waisted are the best! I recommend the Nike, Zella or even this pair from amazon are all amazing.
7 // Pretty new water bottle– I keep a huge water bottle near me all the time. I personally aim to drink about half my body weight in ounces of water a day. I find it way easier to fill a water bottle up rather than grabbing new bottles of water each time.
8 // Classic Black Nikes– I own these and love them. They go with everything and have stood the test of time and a lot of running miles both on the road and on my treadmill.
9 // Booty Bands– Booty bands are my FAVORITE workout item. I use mine multiple times a week for everything from squats to different cardio moves. There are an abundance of pinterest and Youtube videos that show all of the best moves for your bands. The best part if they usually come with an easy band, medium and hard so you can really make your workout your own depending on how you are feeling.
10 // Vitamix (Splurge) or This (Save) Blender– I use my blender daily! I honestly don’t think you need a very expensive one to do the trick. I love making acai bowls, morning protein smoothies or even a smoothie meal replacement in mine.
11 // Splurge APL Sneakers– These have been on my wish list for forever! I love the style and that they are “tongueless” sneakers. They are a bit more than I would typically spend on a sneaker so I would probably treat them like my third child and never wear them outside!
12 // Wireless earbuds– I have yet to find a pair of wireless ear buds that I like but these look great! I love the color of them and that the Bluetooth portion of the wire is smaller. These Beats By Dr. Dre look really great too!
13 // New Sport Bras– Who doesn’t love new workout gear to get them in the mood for a good workout? I love wearing a pretty sports bra to yoga class under a class tank. I think if you feel good and look cute than you can’t go wrong!
