2020 has been stressful enough, but finding great gifts doesn’t have to be. Check out In The Know’s gift guides to make holiday shopping for every person in your life easier than ever.
If you need to holiday shop for someone who wakes up early to run or always posts sweaty selfies on Instagram, then you’re in luck. With gyms closing and people social distancing, there’s been a surge in at-home fitness products this year — and many would make awesome gifts.
Check out these best fitness gifts to get your loved one who never misses a workout. Some of these recommendations are viral sensations, while others have been editor-tested and approved. But all will challenge one’s physical (and mental) strength.
The easiest way to add intensity to any workout is to add resistance. With Bala Bangles, you can add resistance in the form of 2 lb. weights. Wear them on your wrists or ankles for a variety of workouts.
Jump roping is a great cardiovascular workout, and this smart jump rope makes it a little more fun. The SmartRope LED by Tangram connects to a free mobile app that tracks your jump count, calories burned, workout times and interval training.
These Amazon best-selling yoga pants went viral on TikTok as a “Lululemon dupe.” Three In The Know editors recently tried them, with all applauding the buttery soft-stretch fabric and seamless high-waistband. And for the price, you can’t beat ’em.
A Theragun is a percussive massage device you can use to treat sore muscles. Not only that, but you can use the gadget to warm up before a workout and cool down after. Therabody’s most portable (and cheapest) Theragun is the mini version. Compared to the bigger, more expensive pro models, the mini still packs a big punch with three speeds and 150 minutes of battery life. It comes in black or red.
(Editor’s note: The Theragun mini was a gamechanger in my marathon training. Plus, it’s great for treating stiff muscles caused by sitting on the couch while working from home.)
Drinking water is essential, especially when it comes to fitness. “Proper hydration is going to lubricate your joints,” Dr. Alok Patel told In The Know on an episode of “Wellness Lab.” “And for you body building types out there, it will help you build muscle and burn fat.” And this water bottle will help anyone keep their hydration on track.
The MYXfitness bike rivals Peloton’s famous model, offering virtual classes via a screen attached to the bike — but it costs a whole lot less. Use the bike to take spin classes and then swivel the screen while you do strength training, yoga, stretching, HIIT classes and more on the floor.
