7. Supplements 

Listen, this might sound too simple, but do you know how expensive supplements can be? Give the fitness lover on your list something they’ll actually use by treating them to their favorite tried and true supplements.

If you’ve taken anything away from this list, hopefully, it’s that you can never go wrong with the gift of new gym clothes. Much like leggings and joggers, a stylish sports bra is a fitness essential for the weightlifter, yogi, cyclist, or sprinter on your list.
