This gift guide is for fitness, training, and all things gym related! I did not include endurance athlete-specific ideas, I’ll be doing a whole separate round up for that! So stay tuned!
Here is the deal, gone are the days when you can wear an old t-shirt and shorts to the gym. I remember in college we all wore sorority shirts or old high school shirts and soffees to the gym. Nowadays, people be like “why is she going out in that?” Those clothes are now reserved for the one time every 10 years I might do an art project or paint something. So, for those of you with a fitness fanatic in your life or if you are looking for something to ask for here are some ideas!
Fun Shirts & Cloths
Any gym goer loves fitness clothes with motivational and fun sayings to wear to workout and for athleisure (pretty much what I live in nowadays).
My friend Theresa has an awesome fitness apparel line, Sharks Bites of Life. I’m constantly swooning over the cute sayings and clothes on her Instagram.
When I asked Theresa for photos of a few of her favorites she also sent me a discount code for Hungry Hobby readers! Check out SharksBitesofLife.com to check out her stuff and use HUNGRYHOB for 15% off throughout December! !
If you know someone that loves HIIT type of workouts with heavy lifting a pair of weight lifting cross trainers would be awesome!
Sturdy & Functional Leggings
A good pair of leggings is always needed, but can be on the pricey side. Victoria Secret makes a pair of pocket leggings that I LOVE!
Up until recently, I never needed a good sports bra. When I started to gain weight in my boobs from getting my hormones back, my old spandex sports bras aren’t quite giving me the support I need anymore. I swear it’s not a weird gift, good sports bras are like leggings, expensive! I love Lorna Janes lines – they won’t let me upload pictures from their site so here is a few of my favorites:
Anna Sports Bra (I have this in black)
Um, yes. Here is the link.
I also like that this one is sleek and doesn’t scream I’m going to the gym. It could easily be a purse, tote, book bag, whatever you need.
For Home Gym
Our home gym is pretty well stocked but I’m always saying to Mr. Hungry how much I want a set of kettlebells!
I’m a BIG fan of dead weight slam balls like these ones for things like gorilla slams and other slamming movements! Gets your heart rate up and takes out aggression from the day!
However, standard Medicine Balls can be very versatile too!
My hubby got something similar for me and I love it, it totally helped me get my chin up and I’m very close to a pull up!
Of course, they need something to hang from…
This is a must, we didn’t have one of these for a while and it sucked!
Angry Foam Roller – for advanced or deeper use
We have these at the gym and I use them all the time, I wish we had one at home so bad!
