It’s that time of the year again with the Christmas holiday just around the corner and gift-buying days dwindling. However, if you’re stumped for Christmas (or Hannukah or other holidays that you may celebrate) for gift ideas and your loved ones are involved in some form of fitness program, sports team, or exercise training routine then check out these good gift selections that are sure to put a smile on their fit faces.
Gift Idea #1 – Gym Pass or Membership –
This is one of the top gift choices for making your fitness friend happy. If they don’t visit the gym often, or already are involved in a sport with a training facility, give a gym pass so they can try it out or get some extra training time in. If they are already a member of a gym, giving them their next membership period as a gift is sure to make them smile.
Gift Idea #2 – Event Tickets –
Can’t go wrong buying season or even one-time tickets to your loved one’s favorite team, match, bout or event!
Gift Idea #3 – Resistance Band Set –
A great gift for a fitness friend. Exercise tubes are an ideal selection for anyone who’s involved in working out in any shape or form. Fitness bands can be used at home or the office and are excellent fitness choices for travelers.
Gift Idea #4 – Hoodie –
There’s nothing like slipping on a nice, thick hoodie after a hard workout to head home in, especially on cold days. A plus is having the person’s favorite sports team or idol added.

Your guy friends in particular will love this one.
