12 Awesome Health and Fitness Gift Ideas for 2017

Do you have your Christmas gifts figured out for your health and fitness loving friends and family yet? If not, we have some awesome some gift ideas for you!

Luckily, there’s still three more weeks until Christmas, so you should have plenty of time to get everything ready. The great thing is that you can do most of the shopping online and avoid busy shopping malls!

Below you can find 12 fitness and healthy eating-related items that we absolutely love. We’re quite sure that if you get any of these items for a friend or a family member, they won’t be disappointed!

Jump Rope from Crossrope

These weighed Crossrope jump ropes make every jump rope workout even more challenging. These jump ropes are extremely durable so you don’t have to worry about replacing them often like you would regular jump ropes. Crossrope jump ropes have interchangeable handles, which means you can have different weights of jump ropes, but need only one pair of handles. They’re seriously awesome!

Magic Bullet

The Magic Bullet is one of the best kitchen tools that you can for everything from chopping veggies, blending smoothies, grinding coffee beans, and more. We use the Magic Bullet mostly for making smoothies and sauces, but you can literally make guacamole and grind your coffee beans with the same tool!  The blender cup also works as a drinking cup, which means less cleaning up. The Magic Bullet is also fairly easy to take with you on your next road trip since it takes up pretty minimal space in your bag.

Rubberbanditz Resistance Bands

We’re totally in love with Rubberbanditz resistance bands. They are, hands down, the most durable resistance bands we’ve ever used. Using them helps you make your workouts more versatile, because the bands will allow you to make movements easier or harder, depending on your needs. To learn more about how we use Rubberbanditz resistance bands, check out our newest bodyweight workout program!

Stability Ball

Stability balls are great for so many things — core strengthening, balance training, handstand practice – all that without having to go to a gym if you can’t or if you don’t want to. You can even use them as a chair! Stability balls are also really affordable, as you can get one for less than $10.

Doorway Pull Up Bar

A doorway pull up bar makes a comeback to our Christmas gift list every single year, but for a good reason. If you really want to get better at pull ups, having a pull up bar at home significantly increases the chances that you actually practice them! To make this gift even more awesome, add our Pull Up Mastery program to it.

Wood Gymnastics Rings

These rings are a great tool for anyone who wants to take their bodyweight training to the next level and add tons more variety to their workouts (read more on getting started with rings training here). These wood gymnastics rings are sanded down for a smooth textured grip that is noticeably more comfortable than plastic or metal. They are durably built to support any weight and won’t crack under pressure —regardless of how hard you train.

OXO Good Grips Salad Chopper and Bowl

A healthy eater, or someone who wants to become a healthy eater, will definitely appreciate this OXO Good Grips Salad Chopper and Bowl and put it in a good use. We’ve used this salad chopper for a long time, and we totally love it. You can simply throw your fresh salad ingredients in a bowl and chop them right in the bowl, which means not only a healthy meal but also a less messy kitchen.

Mobot Water Bottle

Mobot water bottles are super fun, because they also work as foam roller! Both drinking plenty of water and foam rolling are extremely important for your recovery, so by getting this bottle you’re more likely to do both during and after your workout. We’re serious fans of their bright colors of these water bottles/foam rollers too!

Vita Vibe Mini Paralletes

These Vita Vibe Mini Paralletes allow you to do most exercises that you’d normally do on regular parallettes, like L-Sits or handstands. But they take much less space and are also way more affordable. Because of their small size, they’re perfect for anyone who travels a lot, because they don’t really take much more space than a jump rope.

A Gift Card to a Healthy Restaurant or Grocery Store

A good diet is as important as good exercise routine! Why not to give someone you love a gift card to a healthy restaurant or grocery store. You can be a 100% sure that this card will be used! Our favorites are Sweetgreen and Whole Foods, but there are plenty of other options to choose from.

Wireless Headphones

If you know someone who likes to listen to music or a podcast while working out, a pair of wireless headphones may be a great gift. No one likes the cords tangling or wires breaking in the middle of their workout! Here are couple of options to choose from: Senso wireless earbuds and BlueAnt over ear earphones.

12 Minute Athlete App Subscription and Programs

Our goal is to make working out simple and accessible for everyone. That’s why we think that the 12 Minute Athlete workout app is a great gift for anyone who wants to get in the best shape of their life by spending as little time and as little money as possible.

Our super popular bodyweight training programs are another awesome gift idea! Whether your friend wants to learn to do pull ups, pistol squats or handstands, increase their strength and power by using resistance bands, get in the best shape of their life as fast as possible in just 90 days or get incredibly fit and strong by doing our boxing-inspired workouts, we got you covered.

Enjoy the Holidays!

Help your friends and loved ones have the healthiest and fittest next year, by giving them a great gift they truly appreciate. Happy Holidays!
