Fitness classes are extremely popular because your workout is done in tandem with a group of people. The positive social pressure of being in a fitness class can be a great motivator, but it’s important that you look and feel good while doing it. Here is a list of 10 gifts for the fitness class enthusiast in your life.

1. Fitness Clothing

The most important thing is to choose dry fit clothing that allows the body to breath. The cooler you can stay during a workout, the more efficient the workout. The second most important factor is to make sure the clothes fit properly. Close fitting, but comfortable clothing causes less resistance when exercising.

2. Fitness Watch

There are multiple types of watches to track fitness goals. You must choose the watch that fits the enthusiast’s personality. If he is extreme, focus on a watch with durability and built for contact. When dealing with a more lightweight, high intensity type of enthusiast (aerobic based) focus on a more cardio centered watch.

3. Nutrition Bars

Depending on the goal of your fitness enthusiast, the choice of nutrition bars will vary. You do not want to choose bars that are high in sugar if weight loss is their goal. Choose bars that are low in sugar as well as protein. If your enthusiast is working on building bulk, then bars with high protein and calories would be ideal. These bars promote muscle growth and weight gain.

4. Sunglasses

A good pair of sunglasses is important for proper exercise during outdoor exercise. CrossFit and other intense group exercise done outdoors is becoming increasingly popular, so a stylish pair of sunglasses should also protect from UV rays. Depending on the time of day you are training, sunglasses can prevent straining your eyes from exposure to the sun.

5. Gym bag

There are several items gym junkies carry at any given point. These items could be:

  • Creams
  • Water bottles
  • Ab roller
  • Towel, Fitness gear
  • Shower gear

Most items will need separate compartments. Choose a gym bag that is at least 28 inches long and not smaller than 15 inches high. These measurements allow space for all their necessities.

6. Jump ropes

Jumping rope is one of the best sources of cardio and a great coordination exercise. A good set of jump ropes can go a very long way.


Since music gets the body rocking, headphones are a essential for any enthusiast. If you really care about them, give wireless headphones. That way they can prevent risk of damaging their device or injuring themselves.


Fitness enthusiasts are sticklers about their weight. It does not matter if they are trying to gain or lose. A blender is great because they can put all their favorite foods in a single meal. Being able to blend all your favorite fruits and veggies together saves time and money. That is time they can devote to working out.

9.Energy boosts

Fitness fanatics have days when the natural energy to push through the workout simply isn’t there. Some take energy supplements to temporarily given them the energy they need. Please be aware that they should consult a physician first.

10.Gym membership

Unless they are using the minimalist approach, your fitness enthusiast will probably have a membership. You can still pay for their membership or introduce them to a new Columbia club fitness center.
