Do you know a friend who spends hours at the gym or at a yoga studio? How about someone who thoroughly enjoys running and exercising outdoors, even in inclement weather? Yeah, we all have these types of people in our lives, and they can always be counted upon to give us fitness-related advice and motivation. It’s time to repay them with some fitness gifts.

Since Christmas is just around the corner, you are starting to think of nice gifts to give your family and friends. For the gym rats and fitness junkie in your circle, check out the following fitness gifts ideas. These gadgets are sure to warm their hearts once they unwrap their holiday presents!

Waterproof or Sweatproof Headphones

Many people who work out often pump themselves up by listening to their favorite jams. And most of the time, they use headphones. Exercising, however, means sweating buckets, which also means that those headphones will soon be wet with sweat. This could damage regular earphones easily.

With that said, surprise your fitness enthusiast friend with sweatproof headphones! He or she will surely appreciate it. As for which specific ones to get, the Aquapac Waterproof, Monster iSport Strive, Phillips ActionFit, and Swimbuds Shortcord are great choices.

Bluetooth-Enabled Headphones

This is especially handy when doing weights and bench presses at the gym or when jogging and running. Good options are the Beats Studio Wireless, Skullcandy Grind Wireless, and Bose QuietComfort.

iPod Shuffle

A smart, Wi-Fi-enabled scale is galaxies apart from your regular bathroom scale. It does not only tell body weight, it can also be used as a more detailed body fat analyzer. This means that such a device can track one’s BMI (Body Mass Index), body fat percentage, and lean mass. The data gathered can then be used to make wiser diet decisions and create more effective exercise regimens.

Some smart scales can even provide charts and graphs for you to monitor your progress over time. They can also be synced with a smartphone and wearable fitness tech for better health monitoring. If you decide to get one as a gift, see the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale and similar products.

Bonus Gift Idea: Gloves with Touchscreen Finger Pads

For sure your health junkie friend or family member will still want to go running or go out to exercise even if it is the cold season, so he or she will surely be thankful to receive this. Check out The North Face ThermoBall Etip, and Glider Gloves Urban Style for options.
