After spending most of 2020 indoors, we all are taking greater advantage of conducting our favorite activities in-person again—and that includes attending the gym. Spending most of last year watching Youtube videos wasn’t the same for those who enjoy exercising side-by-side with other fitness aficionados. Now that we are able to continue our old routines, even if it's socially distant, we can finally restock on all our fitness needs, no matter if it is exercise equipment, protein powder or running shoes. 

With the holidays approaching, it is the perfect time to do the shopping we’ve all longed to do. From unique electronic devices to workout gear, here are the best gifts for every fitness lover. 

Flexispot Desk Bike Workstation V9

Even though remote work seems like a thing of the past, it isn’t for some. One way to stay active even from the comfort of your desk is with a desk bike. This one by Flexispot comes with an adjustable seat, eight resistance levels and quiet pedaling system. Depending on the option you choose, the desk bike also includes a desktop that has up and down adjustments so you can pedal while sitting or standing. 

Fendi Bottle Holder and Hydroflask

The ideal accessory for when they’re on-the-go. This Fendi monogrammed bottle holder comes with an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap that makes it perfect to wear over the shoulder or across the chest. The bottle holder is also made from suede, while the straps are a black leather. To match its sporty vibe, the stainless steel flask includes a customized lid with a “FF” motif at the top, as well as gold finishes. It’s all about hydration, but make it fashionable. 

Lululemon Cruiser Large Backpack

Every fitness lover needs a bag that they can use on any occasion. Perfect for the gym, hiking or to walk around the city, the Lululemon Cruiser Backpack is the must-have bag for storing all their items. It was designed for on-the-move use, contains water-repellent fabric and has stowable straps to hold a yoga mat. Other unique features include its exterior padded pocket to fit a 16’’ laptop, and back panel for lumbar support and comfort. 

Theragun Mini Percussion Therapy Device

Described as a “portable treatment packed with power,” the Theragun Mini is a pocket-size tool that provides deep on-the-go muscle massage. It may be smaller than their Elite Therapy Device, but it still packs a mighty punch. The massage device fits in the palm of your hand, and only weighs 1.5 lbs to make it ultra-portable. Additionally, it is quiet in sound, tand also has three massaging speeds for customizable treatment on both small and large muscle areas.

No matter if they are an active member or interested in becoming one, a gift card to use at the Equinox spa, pilates classes and/or gift shop will surely make all of their fitness dreams come true. Gift card amounts range from $100 to $500

Apple AirPods (3rd Generation)

Like many people, I have to listen to music while exercising or doing any leisurely task. The new 3rd Generation AirPods make it easier to listen to your favorite tunes for longer, without disrupting your comfort. These AirPods were designed to sit at the right angle for better listening, and to securely fit inside your ear. They are also sweat and water resistant, so they can withstand any weather or heavy workout. 

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38 Running Shoes

A best-seller for a very good reason. Made with extra cushion for maximum comfort, as well as backed with extra bounce to withstand any surface, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38 is no ordinary running shoe. (To convince you, it’s been a favorite for four decades.) Great for all running levels, the new Pegasus 38 is an upgrade from its predecessor because of its ability to conform to your feet. Not only is it breathable and softer in feel, it is also extremely durable to last for many years to come.
