I’ve been a certified gym junkie for the past couple years, successfully sticking to my New Years resolution of being regularly active. As I’ve gotten into the groove of my fitness routine, I’ve slowly accumulated my favorite workout gear to streamline my gym sessions and look great doing it!
I’ve got a ton of fitness gifts on my own wishlist, which I’ve included in this gift guide along with tried and true go-tos of my own that I swear by during my workout sessions.

1. Apple Watch
Definitely a splurge gift, but my Apple Watch is my best fitness companion due to the advanced tracking abilities. I upgraded from a Fitbit a few years ago, and the difference is dramatic. I get to see so much information about my activity throughout the day… plus I can answer texts or change the song in the middle of my workout from my wrist!
2. C9 Champion Workout Gloves
If you do any type of weight lifting, crossfit, or bootcamp classes, gloves are an awesome gift idea to make workouts more comfortable. They’ll protect the hands so that you can push yourself without roughing up your skin or feeling the sharp friction of ropes, pull up bars and heavy weights.
3. Leef Organics Revive CBD Balm
For sore muscles and joints after a particularly challenging workout, CBD balm does wonders! I started using it for relief after intense hikes and it works quickly without needing to take painkillers. Just apply it straight onto the skin over sore spots!
4. JLAB Air True Wireless Earbuds
Bluetooth headphones can make a workout so much more enjoyable, since you’re not tethered to your phone or other music device. The buds give you full range of motion without getting tangled up. I love how the case charges up the buds every time you put them away, keeping them topped off until your next charge.
5. FlipBelt Running Belt
Arguably the best running accessory, the FlipBelt gives you a place to store all of your important carry-alongs while you run without them jingling around in pockets. This running belt has no clasps or buckles, so you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable chafing or pinching. Perfect for outdoor runners!
6. Kuston Gym Bag with Shoes Compartment
If you’re shopping for a girl-on-the-go who hits the gym before or after a day of work or class, a great gym bag is essential. I love this one that keeps shoes separate from everything else, so you don’t have to worry about mixing dirty sneakers with a clean change of clothes! It’s roomy and durable, with a waterproof compartment to keep wet items separated as well.
7. SimpleModern Insulated Water Bottle
I prefer taking a nice long sip of ice cold water when I’m hot and sweaty after a workout. This water bottle keeps drinks cold for so long! I’ve even filled it up with ice at night, and the next day it still had intact ice cubes inside! It just makes for a more refreshing hydration during exercise.
8. Avia Active Pocket Capri Leggings
I’ve started shopping for all of my workout wear at Walmart, because their Avia brand has amazing active leggings! Capris are my favorite style since they can be worn year round, and these ones even have pockets to keep your phone close hands-free.
9. BodyBoss Fitness Guides
The BodyBoss Fitness Guides have been a huge help in my own fitness progress over the past couple years. They’re available as digital or physical guides that give you step-by-step workout routines you can do at the gym or at home. The workouts are designed by trainers, are effective and fast! Since it’s a one-time purchase, it ends up being cheaper than a personal trainer over time. Check out my experience with the Tone Guide in my video here.
10. Microfiber Sports Towel
I can’t stand the feel of sweat dripping down my face or chest, so a towel is essential for my workouts. I love microfiber towels particularly because they wipe away moisture quickly and are fast-drying. This one comes in several different sizes depending on what you want to use it for!
