Do you know a woman that is determined to get in shape?
Someone who is just getting started in the fitness world? Someone who may be a little nervous about starting her workout plan? I’ve rounded up some perfect gifts with this year’s holiday gift guide to encourage and motivate gym newbies!
Starting the fitness routine is one of the toughest parts of it. I was so self conscious the first time I stepped into a fitness club to train. Luckily I had a friend with me to give me moral support.
If she’s going to a gym for the first time she’ll likely be nervous and self-conscious. Arm her with some gifts that will inspire her!

Inspired Apparel Tee
I love these tees from Inspired Apparel, and not just because the woman behind the company is my friend. I have several tees and they are simply the most comfortable shirts I have.
The messages are inspiring and based on scripture, which gives me strength when I’m nervous.
These tees also come in workout tanks!
Another woman-owned small business that I love is Fitstyle. Fitstyle sells fashionable meal packing bags (these are not your ordinary meal planning bags!) and gorgeous motivational jewelry.
My personal favorites are the necklaces. They also have keychains, earrings, and charm bracelets.
Nothing is more embarrassing or more deflating that realizing that your leggings are see through while you are at the gym. Leggings that look fine for everyday wear may not hold up to squats!
My favorite brand of leggings is from Athleta. They are comfortable and hold up to some serious workouts. The red ones on the left are from Old Navy and the ones on the right (gray) are my favorite pair of “chatauranga” leggings from Athleta.
Fitbit Charge HR
I can’t forget the Fitbit! Fitbits not only make tracking your heart rate and steps easy, they make it fun too. I currently wear a Blaze, which I like because it combines function with fashion. Working out with a Fitbit and participating in challenges with your friends is highly motivational.
Bose Earbuds or Headphones
Also, you need good music and quality earbuds during a workout to keep you pumped up! I’m a big fan of Bose Sound Sport.. I know that my husband also likes the Bose Headphones. The Bose sound can’t be beat.
Motivational Fitness Planner
For the workout at home mom, I created the Commit to Be Fit: Simple, Smart, and Complete Fitness Tracking System. This 214 page printable binder system takes the big scary “get in shape” and breaks it into weeks. She’ll get a fitness tracker, progress tracker, meal tracker, meal planner, and weekly goals and reflections. It’s everything she needs to stay committed to her goals! It’s available in pink or teal.
For the mom who is hitting the gym, I recommend the Quick Fit Log. It’s a small, portable workout tracker filled with quotes to keep her going.
If you really want her to feel “Committed” to her fitness you can get her this adorable workout tee and matching water bottle!
Thousands of women start a new fitness routine with the New Year. We call them the “January people” at my gym. This year, help a woman in your life stick to her fitness routine past February with these encouraging and motivating gifts.
