The best fitness gifts of 2022

What are the best fitness gifts for anyone who loves to stay active?

Shopping for the fitness enthusiast in your life? Being active has never been more popular, and brands are capitalizing on this trend by releasing the latest and greatest fitness gear. From folding treadmills to earbuds to pool workout gear, the options are endless.

 

Whether they prefer to attend a yoga class or work out at home, there's no need to feel weighed down by all the exercise equipment and gym gear on the market. To find the best gift, flex your research skills and take a look at this list of the best fitness gifts for anyone who loves to stay active.

How to choose a fitness gift

Consider their interests

Knowing they love staying active is the first step, but being more specific can help you choose the perfect present. For example, do they spend hours in the gym lifting weights every day, or do they prefer to hike or run in nature? Consider a fitness tracker if they love tracking their stats and staying hands-free. Or, if they take long bike rides or ride a bike to work, they might appreciate a cycling backpack

Solve a problem

If you’re having trouble choosing a sweet or sentimental gift, it’s never a bad idea to solve a problem with a practical gift. For instance, if they always forget to charge their fitness watch or earbuds before working out, consider a portable charger or wireless charging pad. If they love working out but don’t have room in their house, consider space-saving exercise equipment.

Remember your relationship

One way to ensure your gift is a knockout is to choose an item that represents your relationship. Maybe you like to lift weights together, or they always make you a smoothie when they return from their run. A sentimental gift is personal and lets the person know you’re thinking about them.
