So cute for heading to the gym or out for brunch. I bought 4 of them. 2 for me so I can have both a black and a white one and 2 to give away!

I have these pants and love them so much. I have to admit, I have not worn them to workout once, but I wear them on plane rides and even out in Paris one night. They are super hot and sexy gift and also vegan friendly!

You can never have enough pairs of the Nike Frees. She can have 5 pairs already, a 6th will be welcome. Fun bright colors are always in style and will go with her brightly colored fitness gear. Just know her size!

Great for guys and girls alike who like to bike, jog or hike before or after work and want to stay safe. I have at least three of them that I clip onto my clothes and bags when I head out on my bicycle. It’s getting dark so early these days so it’s important to have these on you just in case you get caught out after sundown. The lights blink to warn drivers and other pedestrians that you are coming their way!
Available on Amazon for $8.79
Trigger Point Performance Hand Held Foam Roller:
I bought two of these hand held foam rollers this Christmas. One for my parents and one for my brother. They are much easier to use then traditional foam rollers, so they are a great gift for non-athletes too. Also, great for people with sports-related injuries. Roll onto your sore muscles to increase circulation and blood flow to the injured or sore area.
Available at REI for $34.95
Great for any outdoor athlete. The handy strap on the pepper spray make it easy to hold in your hand while you’re running, hiking or biking outdoors. You can also keep it in your purse or car to have in case of an emergency. Safety first!

I love this gift idea for someone who wants to learn how to cook healthy meals. You can set your dietary restrictions and scheduling to receive ingredients and recipes for you to cook healthy seasonal meals. Meals are sent for 2 or 4 people and all ingredients are fresh so planning is essential for success.

Another gift for the foodie trying to get fit, or the fit type who’s constantly on the go and doesn’t have time to prepare healthy meals. These individual-sized meals are creative healthy versions of foods one might consider a decadent treat. Try the carrot noodles with sriracha peanut sauce for lunch and the sweet potato chocolate mouse or chickpea cookie dough for dessert. All ingredients are gluten free and fresh, so must be eaten within 10 days.
