It’s hard to stay motivated every week without your workout buddy. Sometimes you just want to sleep in, but your buddy calls letting you know they’re on their way. And you can’t stand them up. So you drag your butt out of bed. Once you get that workout in – you feel amazing! Show them how much you appreciate their unwavering motivation by helping them stay on track with these fitness gifts.
# 1 After This We’re Getting Pizza Yoga Mat
Think of it this way: You may need those post-workout calories to sustain you through the next sweat session. So while you think about loading up on cheesy carbs, keep motivated with this super comfy mat that understands your true motivation for exercise. Grab yourself an adorable yoga mat too and you can be matchy workout bffs.
#2 Knuckle Lights
When runners have a busy schedule and the only time they can go for a walk or a run is after dark, safety is a big issue. Many runners don’t like to carry bulky flashlights or wear uncomfortable headgear to light their way. Knuckle Lights make it easy to see and be seen during any dusk to dawn run. They are designed to be worn on the front of your hands, in a perfect position to light their path. And they are RECHARGEABLE! Knuckle Lights come with their own USB charging dock so they will always be ready to go when they are. And they are waterproof, so they can be worn in any type of weather. Grab one for each of your favorite runners at knucklelights.com.
#3 S’well Water Bottle
You need to keep hydrated during your workouts. Give them a fancy bottle so they can carry their beverages in style. Just because you are sweating it doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable. Stay hydrated with a sleek, double-walled stainless-steel water bottle featuring ThermaSwell™ fabrication that keeps cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks hot for up to 12. Designed to fit in a standard car cup holder, it features a wide mouth that makes it easy to fill, add ice cubes and clean. Plus, S’well donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each bottle to UNICEF to help provide clean drinking water to children around the world. Check out all the S’well designs.
