There’s probably someone in your life who constantly talks about their marathon training or is always quoting their Peloton instructor — and these gifts are for them. Even if it’s not your thing, the best fitness gifts can help someone track their workout, recover after a long run or make exercising more fun.

If you’re willing to splurge, there are more than a few great pieces of exercise equipment out there, like the SoulCycle bike, the MIRROR or the Hydrow rower. However, if they’re good to go with their gym setup, things like activewear, accessories, or even a month of classes on a platform like Alo Moves make great gifts.

Take a look below at some of the best fitness gifts to give this holiday season (and maybe stock up on a few yourself if you have some 2023 goals you’re gearing up to crush).

CALPAK’s Luka Duffle may be for travel, but it also makes for a great gym bag. It has a separate shoe compartment to zip up smelly sneakers or sweaty clothes, as well as nine pockets for stashing away toiletries, fresh clothes and more. You could also use this bag for travel or work. Get it in this bold metallic color or seven other subtle colors (like light blue or standard black).

Bala Bangles are soft wrist and ankle weights that come in multiple colors and designs (the set pictured above is part of Bala’s collaboration with New Balance). They may only weigh a pound each, but you’ll feel the burn. Wear them on a walk, run, bike ride, during Pilates, while folding laundry — whatever.

Therabody’s Theragun was one of the first percussive massage devices to help people treat muscle aches and chronic pain by increasing blood flow to support the body’s natural recovery process.

Therabody has several varieties of its massage guns, but the Theragun Mini is the least expensive and the most portable. It’s about 5.5 inches wide and weighs 1.2 pounds. Don’t be mistaken — this device packs some serious power. It has three speeds: 1750, 2100 and 2400 percussions per minute. Turn it on and off and change the speed with one button that lights up when it’s on and turns red when it needs a charge. But you don’t have to charge it much. It has 150 minutes of battery life and needs only about 80 minutes to charge.

Music can be a big motivator in a person’s workout. The wireless Powerbeats Pro clip onto the ear to stay put on no matter how fast you move. Each sweat- and water-resistant earbud has volume and track controls and up to nine hours of listening time. Get them in navy, black, off-white or pink.

The Oura Ring is a sleek wellness tracker. It can track sleep, heart rate, activity levels and even how much time a person spends in a relaxed state each day. Plus, it has up to seven days of battery life. People love that you don’t have to set specific modes for it to work — it automatically detects when you’re moving or taking a nap.

The Horizon is its latest style, and it’s a bit sleeker. However, it’s also a little more expensive. The original Heritage design starts at $299.

This lululemon water bottle keeps drinks cold or hot, meaning it’s great for cold water at the gym or sipping a hot tea during a morning walk. Plus, its single-touch lid makes one-handed drinking easy.

APL sneakers have so much bounce the NBA banned them in 2010. Today, its incredibly comfortable TechLoom Zipline Running Shoe is one of its best sellers. Wear it to run, strength train or walk the dog. Its breathable and supportive fabric keeps the foot stable no matter where it goes.
