Gift Guide Essentials for Work Out Enthusiasts

This post contains affiliate links.

My husband and I have been on a lifestyle wellness change for over two years now. Since we are having to learn healthy habits in our adulthood, it has been trial and error on what works for us. The first thing we did was overhaul our diet. Then I started on cardio while my husband focused more our weight training. We both lost 30 to 40 pounds, but then we plateaued. We were able to keep the weight off, but we weren't losing anymore. And then we found CrossFit and it has seriously been a game changer and the best investment in our health we have ever made.

So now we consider ourselves gym nuts. We have also found some products along the way that have been game changers as well. If you know someone in your life who is on a fitness journey, then here are some awesome gift ideas they will be sure to enjoy!

Contraband Padded Weight Lifting Gloves with Grip-Lock Padding

Although designed for weight lifting, these gloves can be used for a variety of other activities including cycling, yoga, rowing, sailing, paddle boarding and even as work gloves. These fingerless gloves are designed to work on many different surfaces but are most effective on dry dust free surfaces. The vegan amara leather used on the palm is not as durable as traditional animal leather, but it is more flexible and does not suffer from dye bleeding which is common with traditional animal leather. Amara leather is a synthetic so the dye is suspended inside the fiber, simply put, you won't need to pre-wash these to remove excess dye.

Another great gift idea for someone who has lost a great deal of weight, gift cards to their favorite clothing store. Why? Because they may not know what size they truly are, but are in desperate need of new clothes. So this gesture helps them while not insulting them. Buying some clothes that's a bigger size than what they wear, can seriously damage their mental game. And the biggest thing I have learned the past two years is that the biggest part of a weight loss journey is the mental aspect.

Do you know someone in your life who could benefit from this list? Do you like to work out? What are some of your essentials?

  1. This is a great list! There are a couple of things on your list that I never would have thought of! This is one of the reasons I had to pin this!! Unfortunately for people who are disabled like me, I couldn’t use any of these or do a cardio workout ��️‍♀️ I’m going to share this with two of my daughters, who ran in the Chicago Bank of America’s Marathon this last weekend and last year also. They do strenuous work outs to compete in these competitions! I applaud you and your hubby for taking charge in your lives! It’s never too late!! Thank you for sharing!


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
