Have you ever noticed that people who love to run, really love to run? Or that people who go to the gym plan their days around it? That’s because these hobbies are rewarding, even on a chemical level, so it’s unlikely someone who’s active will just lose interest. That’s great news for you because it means the right men’s gifts for someone like that will be put to use for years. What is the right gift? We recommend anything from this list. Here are the best fitness gifts you can give this year.


Pro Bands

The best pieces of exercise equipment are rarely the most lavish. Simple tools often deliver exceptional results. We like few pieces of workout gear better than Pro Bands, multi-exercise resistance bands that turn any workout up a notch. Squats. Jumps. Stretches. Everything becomes a bit more challenging with these in the mix.


Laundry Punching Bag

With the Laundry Punching Bag, you can channel your inner Rocky Balboa, slugging away at the filled bag in preparation for your fight against Ivan Drago. Each comes with a hanging hook so you can dangle it from a beam while you work on your jab and uppercut. Then take it down and carry it over to the washing machine.


OLIVERS All Over Short

[Partner]  When was the last time you picked up a new pair of shorts for the gym or to wear around the house? It’s been too long. You’re due for an upgrade. Designed with both performance and style in mind, the OLIVERS All Over Short effortlessly combines 4-way stretch and water repellent material with a tailored fit for a pair of ridiculously comfortable and hard-wearing shorts suited for everything from gym to trail. With a 365-day guarantee and no hassle returns, you have no excuse not to get better exercise gear.


Aer Gym Duffel 2

[Shop]  Aer makes sleek and sophisticated bags with a contemporary edge. The Gym Duffel 2 is a new and improved version of their classic gym bag. To be clear, this is nothing like the workout bag you’ve trusted for years. The Gym Duffel 2 offers a ventilated shoe compartment so your sneakers don’t get your other gear funky, quick access front pockets for necessities, and a separate compartment for clean clothes. Instead of one giant pouch for your sweaty clothes, wallet, phone, and change of clothes, the Duffel 2 from Aer gives you so much needed organization. Make it your gym bag and you’ll never go back to the void that was your old duffel bag.


TRX Wall Ball

You know the TRX name from the training bands that allow you to hang and do push-ups and pull-ups while your core stabalizes you. Now the brand is giving you even more of a total body workout with this Wall Ball. Built to withstand heavy use, the TRX Wall Ball is ready to be hoisted, flung, and slammed for years while you tone your arms, midsection, back, and legs in the process.


Apple Watch Nike+

One of the finest traits of the Apple Watch is its ability to revamp your approach to exercise and fitness tracking. The Nike+ version throws a sweat-resistant band into the mix. If someone you know is serious about fitness and they don’t already have an Apple Watch strapped to their wrist, this special edition is going to go over extremely well this holiday.


Tangram Factory Smart Rope

That whole thing about simple pieces of exercise equipment being the best? Yeah, it’s true again here, as the humble jump rope will still give a better workout than any fancy device shown on TV at 3 in the morning. Tangram Factory upgraded this one so it can sync with your phone and give you control over your workouts and info about your progress.


Mobot Water Bottles

What you see here is not your average water bottle. Sure it will deliver hydration when you need it most, but it will also help your muscles in another way. The Mobot bottle doubles as a foam roller so you can roll out those tight quads or shoulder blades between sips.


Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones

Bose makes some of our favorite noise-cancelling headphones around, so when the brand dropped some workout buds we were clearly interested. Built to stay in your ears even during the most grueling workout, the SoundSport Wireless Headphones boast classic Bose quality, meaning balanced audio at any volume.


Quiet Punch

Ask anyone who boxes, the sport is an incredible workout. You don’t need to step in the ring to reap the benefits, as Quiet Punch brings a boxing workout to your home. The bag attaches to a door frame and it syncs with an app to give you a tailored workout that will leave every muscle in your body spent.


Onnit Star Wars Kettlebells

Shaped like Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and a Stormtrooper, the kettlebells in this collection will give you a better workout than the one Yoda gave Luke on Dagobah. Ranging from 50 to 70 lbs, the kettlebells deliver in areas standard dumbbells can’t, even if you could use the Force to lift them with your mind.


Kettle Gryp

Kettlebells work stabilizing muscles to deliver a more complete workout than dumbbells. Of course, investing in a set of kettlebells when you already own dumbbells is a tall order. Enter Kettle Gryp, which transforms the dumbbells you have into functional kettlebells. Get the benefits of both pieces of equipment with this simple gadget.
