If you go to OrangeTheory, are a coach, or are interested in fitness, you probably have an impressive collection of fitness accessories. Finding a gift for someone passionate about fitness can be challenging. You don’t know what they have and what they need.
Here we will look at 25 OrangeTheory fitness gifts you can get for the fitness fanatics in your family or friend group.
Working out is fantastic for your body, but sometimes it can do damage if you don’t take care of yourself. When watching your friends and family work out, you will see some stretch and others ignore their body’s needs.
If you want to get them something to help them recover from workouts, get them a high-density foam roller. Rolling out your muscles helps with injury recovery and helps you get more out of your sessions.
Most people who run outside wear headphones. They might use AirPods or some other set of wireless headphones. Unfortunately, headphones make it challenging to hear what is going on around. This challenge can be dangerous, and, as a result, you should consider getting them a pair of bone conduction open-ear endurance headphones.
They rest on your ears instead of going inside them, letting you hear what’s happening around you while providing clear audio.
Jumping rope is one of the most convenient and accessible cardio exercises. It burns calories quicker than most workouts, meaning you can fit in a rigorous workout if you don’t have much time. It doesn’t cost much to buy a jump rope, so it is a fantastic gift if you have a limited budget.
This handmade jump rope has a comfortable grip and a lightweight design, making it perfect for home workouts and portability.
If you want to help your friend have fun while working out, you can get them a collection of exercise dice. Like dice in Dungeons and Dragons, these dice have more than the traditional six sides.
Each side has a workout for them to do. For example, one side could instruct you to do 30 bicycle crunches. Using these dice, your fitness friends can create unique workout sessions while having fun and adding variation to their routines.
For this gift idea, you need to know if your friend spends much time biking. Cycling is a great endurance exercise for people who can’t run because of bad knees. However, there’s another section of your body that struggles while on a bike: your butt.
Bike seats aren’t comfortable, and as a result, you need special shorts. Getting your friend a few new pairs of bike shorts is simple, but they will appreciate it.
Not all workouts are meant to result in you dripping in sweat. That might be a surprise to people who don’t work out, but some days need to be light so your body can recover.
On days when you don’t expect to sweat much, a high-quality pair of sweatpants are great for your workout. Not only would sweatpants make a fantastic gift for your friend’s workouts, but they can wear them at home to relax and recharge for their next session.
Workout gloves are a fantastic gift for your friends in are into lifting. Lifting weights puts a lot of stress on your hands, which many overlook.
If you lift heavy weights, it’s easy for your hands to get torn up by the grip on metal bars. However, your skin is protected with a pair of workout gloves, and your friends can go for personal records without any worries.
Admittedly, you probably will not be able to get this gift for any of your male friends. However, if you’re shopping for a woman, she will appreciate a new set of sports bras.
These breathable, ribbed sports bras come in various colors and are the perfect addition to any workout wardrobe. The best part is they’re super comfortable and easy to throw in the wash.
Unfortunately, some fitness fanatics may already have many things on this list. However, there are a few unique gift ideas, such as a portable neck fan, that your loved one won’t have thought to buy yet.
Wearing one around your neck, you can stay cool during the hot summer months as you run or bike. One of these devices could be a game changer for your friend or family member.
If you’re buying a gift for someone who loves to spend time outside with their dog, you should consider this lightweight dog backpack.
It’s an incredible option for people who hike, run, or bike with their dogs. It has four pockets, so you can store food and water for yourself and your dog. Additionally, it’s made with breathable mesh that doesn’t make your back as hot as traditional backpacks.
Not every gift needs to be something permanent. You can get your friends and family something they will enjoy for a short period. For example, a Daily Harvest gift box will help the gift recipient plan their meals.
Get them a nine-cup box so they can plan their meals for just over a week. If they like the service, they can continue with it for as long as they like. If not, they can enjoy the meals and return to their initial meal planning strategy.
Unfortunately, it’s sometimes challenging for people to get to the gym every time they want to work out. As a result, it is a good idea to try to build out a small home gym.
A great place to start is with an under-desk elliptical machine. The best thing about this device is you can get a bit of a workout while sitting at your desk doing work.
Most of us don’t need high level competitive agility or balance once we finish playing team sports after high school or college. However, it isn’t a good idea to abandon it completely. Working on your balance can improve your core strength and it makes you more stable in everyday life.
With a balance board, your friends can practice their balance while improving their core strength and maybe take up snowboarding. This product also comes with:
- Slide discs
- A jump rope
- Latex loops
- A carry bag
Every athlete carries water around with them throughout the day. Staying hydrated is one of the most important yet overlooked aspects of fitness.
With a smart water bottle, your friends will always meet their hydration goals. This water bottle glows as a reminder for you to drink water throughout the day. It tracks water intake and insulates the water so that it stays cold for 24 hours. You can even customize the color!
Sometimes it helps to put pen to paper with your workouts. Your friend might not realize how helpful a fitness journal can be initially. However, after a little while, they will love it.
Writing down what you do every day can help you optimize your training. Additionally, when your friend writes down how they feel after a workout, they can look back at bad sessions to see what they can do differently in the future.
As discussed earlier, it can be challenging for some people to get to the gym every day. As a result, affordable items you can buy for a small home gym will improve your fitness.
A dip station is a good option because it can be used for several workouts. Your friend can do traditional dips or lie on the ground and pull themselves up. Those are only two of the many workouts you can do with a dip station.
Like bone conduction headphones, audio sunglasses let you listen to music without hindering your ability to hear what’s going on around you.
These sunglasses come with built-in Bose speakers. They provide clear audio, without being intrusive to people around you, making them one of the best OrangeTheory fitness gifts.
Athletic socks are a great gift idea for anyone, but specifically for runners. Anyone who runs regularly will tell you how fast they go through socks.
Usually, their socks are covered in holes, which makes it easy to get blisters. A few new pairs of athletic socks might not seem like much, but your runner friends will appreciate them.
Here is something not everyone will have: boxing gloves. You might not think of this when brainstorming gift ideas because your friend doesn’t box. However, your friend doesn’t need to get into the ring to use boxing gloves.
Circuit workouts done by boxers are incredibly efficient. Additionally, they can be a lot of fun. So, if you want to help your friend expand their horizons, consider getting them boxing gloves for their birthday.
Not everyone likes carrying things with them when running, but it’s a necessity for some. Notably, people who go on long-distance trail runs need to carry items with them.
If you know a friend who is into trail or long-distance running, a large pocket running belt would make a great gift. This one has expandable pockets, making it a fantastic option for people who need to bring gels with them on the trails.
Here’s another gift idea that your friend almost definitely does not own. A yoga wheel is fantastic for people who need to stretch out their bodies.
It lets you bend in ways you can’t under normal circumstances. Get this for your friends who need to spend a little extra time caring for their bodies.
This gift is on the more expensive side of things, but if you want to get something they will truly love, this option is worth it. This sleek device comes in three stunning color options.
Smartwatches are essential for gathering data and getting the most out of your workouts, but they can be bulky. The Fitbit Charge 5 is a thin watch that doesn’t get in the way of other devices. Using this device, your friend can track their heart rate, recovery rate, and other physical responses to working out.
Not everyone is going to want to use bone conduction headphones or something of that nature. Many people will prefer to use traditional headphones. Unfortunately, finding a good pair can be challenging, so doing the work for them will be appreciated.
This pair of wireless earbuds is a good option for people who work out inside or out. They have seven hours of battery life and provide clear audio to the user.
If your friend has a dog, they need to manage their dog and their workouts. Unfortunately, living with a dog means you can’t do every workout you want without taking them with you. If your friend likes to run, they probably bring their dog with them sometimes.
However, they probably don’t like carrying the leash. Fortunately, using a hands-free dog leash means they can run without worrying about the leash slipping away.
Armbands are useful for holding your phone when out on a run, but they make you feel off-balance. A training vest might seem bulky, but they’re lighter than you would expect, and they redistribute the weight of your items.
As a result, you can use one of these vests to hold your phone, keys, and water without worrying about feeling off-center or unbalanced.
Buying gifts for your friends and family can be challenging, but the best thing to do is find something they love. Identifying fitness as a passion of theirs means there is a plethora of fitness gift ideas for you to choose from.
Any options listed above should be great OrangeTheory fitness gifts for your friends and family. There are options for all budgets and workout preferences.
