The Holiday Season is creeping up and if you are here, it is probably because you have a special person in your life who is a Fitness Freak.
Fitness freak- someone who is extremely passionate about physical fitness and health. They are often very dedicated, disciplined, conscience of how they look and what they put into their body.
Shopping for them is NOT an easy task. But by following these guidelines you will know which gifts to avoid,which gifts to get, and some of the best places to find giftspiration.
Gifts To Avoid
Gifts that are unhealthy
This may seem like an obvious answer… but it is not to be overlooked.
Generally speaking it is usually appropriate to gift someone something unhealthy, such as; chocolates, cookies, alcohol, or cigars.
But these items are all detrimental to one's health and well-being, and as such, they could be viewed as unwelcome gifts by a Fitness Freak who is trying to stay fit and healthy.
Fitness Freaks are very health-conscious and aware of what they're putting into their body.
Buying them a new supplement may seem like a good idea, but unless you know the exact flavor and brand of supplement that they use, there's no reason for them to try one out.
Workout equipment they haven't specifically asked for
A fitness freak probably has all of the workout equipment that they need. Getting them equipment that they don’t ask for will most likely end up being unused.
If you really want to gift them some equipment, try running it by them first to see if they are receptive to it. You could ask them their opinions on the equipment in general or if you don’t want to keep your gift a surprise you could just straight up ask them if they would like one.
What Kind Of Gifts Do Fitness Freaks Actually Want?
Fitness Freaks are working out 5+times a week and are constantly sweating through their clothes. Buy them some high-quality fitness clothing from top brands like:
Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, or LuluLemon.
Giving them workout clothes is practical and it shows them that you have taken notice of their passions and wanted to get something useful for them.
Take notice of their gym accessories and think about how you might be able to help them upgrade.
For Example, They may have old torn up gloves that they have been wearing to the gym for years. Consider getting them a fresh new pair.
Or take a look at the water bottle that they bring with them. There are new high tech bottles like the Hidralite Smart water bottle that will automatically track their water intake on their smart phone. This technology could be a helpful upgrade for someone constantly tracking their body.
