PSA: Getting someone the gift of personal training sessions or a gym membership can really only work if the receiver has communicated precisely that they’d like personal training sessions or a gym membership. Just like you never ask someone if they’re pregnant, you don’t assume someone wants the gift of fitness. That being said, sometimes friends mention they’d like to get BACK to the gym, or that they’d like to work out more often. I find that something as small as a new workout shirt or if Taylor Swift has come out with a new album, I suddenly have more energy to train!
So with that in mind, here are a few of my favorite “this gets me to the gym” items that are easy to give to your activity-craving loved one!
Silk eye mask!
Epsom bath salts!
A water bottle with a lot of personality!
Healthy meal kits!
I could go on and on but hopefully this gives you some ideas for what to get me your friend or family member (or yourself)!
(And, you know, if your loved one HAS expressed wanting personal training as a gift, I’d be happy to talk about some options!)
