This holiday season, the best fitness gifts are going to be well-received by everyone, from the weekend warrior to the serious competitor. Think: everything from super-comfy performance athleisure for him to high-tech gear for her and gadgets for the kids. Maybe a piece of design-forward exercise equipment, say, or a collapsible water bottle or perhaps a tingle-inducing self-massage apparatus? Then your bestie, your lover, your mom, dad, kids or whoever you gifted will repay you with a stressless smile and a heartfelt “thank you.”

1. Lululemon ABC Jogger 30“ Warpstreme

For the Chill Fitness Dude

These smart-looking tailored joggers are more presentable than his old baggy sweats, and the quick-drying fabric has four-way stretch for maximum comfort. Plus, the ergonomic gusset is meant to eliminate the tension in the crotch that so many bargain joggers have.

3. Bala T2 The Power Ring

For the Minimalist

At ten pounds, this coated metal ring is suitable for more than 75 unique movements, from squats to lunges. “This is a great shape for exercises that you would have done with a kettlebell or free weight,” says one user. “It keeps the weight distributed evenly if you’re moving it around, but it’s also nice to hold onto if you’re isolating your bottom half.”

Buy It ($85)


4. Theragun Mini (Red)

For the Massage Lover

Percussive therapy is a hit (no pun intended) of the fitness community, since it allows users to give themselves massage therapy on an as-needed basis. Three speeds of pulsing last up to 150 minutes on one charge.

8. Equipt Midnight Ubarre

For the Interior Decorator

In four- and eight-pound sizes, this gets our vote for chicest workout accessory. Made of matte black metal at 14 inches tall and 11 inches wide, this looks more like a sculpture than a kettle bell, so you can keep it on display in your living room without it looking like a gym.

For the Squats Devotee

Sometimes simple design makes the most effective exercise equipment of all—for example this set of light, medium and heavy resistance bands. It comes with a downloadable exercise guide, but just slide this up onto your thighs and do three sets of eight squats…that’s worth the cost right there.
