16 Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Fit Fanatic Friends

December 13, 2017

They’ll feel healthier just opening these gifts.

Everyone knows at least one woman who lives in her activewear and is forever spruiking the benefits of clean eating and CrossFit.

You know the type; you feel positively grimy with guilt scoffing a burger in front of her and owning up to the fact the closest you got to an aerobic workout in the last year was that time the lift broke in your apartment building and you were forced to take the stairs.

Sure, her constant #blessed hashtags and evangelical health rants can get annoying at times, but she’s also the one person in your life who motivates you to ask for the dressing on the side at lunch and actually walk that extra bus stop further to work. (Every bit counts, right?)

So why not reward her this year with a gift she’ll actually put to serious use? These fitness inspired Christmas gift ideas will show her you totally get her. Even if you don’t always totally love her for waking you up for 6a.m. spin class…
