fitness gifts for men

Finding the right fitness gifts for men can be challenging, especially for the Fit Father who already has everything!

First off, knowing more about what the favorite men in your life already have for workout equipment and fitness gear is important.

Talk with them about their gift list, or use the ideas below to surprise them with fun gifts that they're not expecting!

Even if your favorite fit father seems to already have everything associated with exercise, chances are they don't have all of our favorite fitness gifts for men.

This holiday season, think outside the box (and avoid breaking the bank) with the 25 gift ideas below.

Happy holiday shopping!

Give the gift of knowledge this holiday season — here are 5 lessons from a fitness expert that Dr. A wishes he knew earlier!

25 Great Fitness Gifts For Men

Massage Gun

Anyone who works out regularly often experiences sore, tense, or tight muscles from time to time.

Consider getting the fit fathers in your life a hand-held massage gun that targets specific tissues needing attention.

This gift provides a natural way to heal, reduce tenderness and tightness, enhance muscle recovery, and improve workouts.

Foam Roller

Another exceptional fitness gift for men for exercise recovery is a textured foam roller.

They help stretch and ease tension on just about any muscle group, including the back, neck, hips, hamstrings, quadriceps, or calves.

Boxing Gear

Even if your fit fathers already have a ton of exercise gear, they may not have a punching bag or boxing gloves.

These fitness gifts for men offer practical workouts that can be done from the comfort of home, and they also provide a chance to relieve stress this holiday season!

Battle Ropes

Many gyms and group fitness classes provide exercise training ropes, but chances are your fit father doesn't have one at home.

Battle fitness ropes offer a superior way to train the entire body, especially your upper body, and allow you to achieve superior sculpting results.

Health Supplements

Even if the men in your life already use Fit Father Project supplements, you can't go wrong by replenishing their stock this holiday season.

And don't forget to grab some Fit Mother Project supplements for yourself!

The Natural Hormone Balancer Busy Women 40+ Are Using For Improved Mood, Sleep, Skin, Stress & Easier Weight Loss

At around 40, most women's hormone levels begin a “rollercoaster' ride, which eventually culminates in menopause. You feel tired all the time. It's hard to lose weight. Your body doesn't respond to diet and exercise like it used to. But now, it doesn't have to be that way for you…

Workout Clothes

Even well-equipped workout gurus love receiving new workout clothing that feels comfortable and fits exceptionally.

Or, show off that you're a fit family with Fit Father Project gear and Fit Mother Project gear!

Pull-Up Bar

One of the most practical ways to train at home is to have a pull-up bar.

Consider it as a fitness gift for men this holiday season and a way to avoid breaking the bank.

Men who don't already have a pull-up bar will love this gift idea, as they can work their upper body and even their abs!

Adjustable-Weight Dumbbells

Adjustable-weight dumbbells are great for fit fathers because they can take them anywhere, even on vacation, and still complete excellent workouts.

These dumbbells give your entire family access to varying resistance levels in two compact dumbbell weights!

Hydration Pack

Another unique fitness gift for men who enjoy endurance workouts is a hydration pack.

They can wear the pack on their back to carry drinking water, allowing them to go hands-free and put more energy into their workouts.

Agility Ladder

An agility ladder is something your fit fathers, as well as you and your kids, can enjoy this holiday season.

It's lightweight, easy to take with you while traveling, and a perfect way to burn fat, get fit, boost strength and agility, and enhance muscle definition — even for men who have everything!

Portable Wireless Speaker

If the fit fathers in your life enjoy listening to music or podcasts during their workouts, a portable wireless speaker for their home gym comes in handy.

They can use wireless speakers during workouts, family gatherings, or doing just about any other favorite activity!

Compression Gear

Compression garments come in handy during and after workouts, as they enhance circulation, improve post-workout recovery, and help reduce muscle soreness after workouts.

Compression gear can also help the fit fathers in your life keep their muscles warm during cold winter workouts.

Choose compression sleeves, shirts, or pants for your loved ones this holiday season to maximize their exercise performance and recovery!

Running Shoes

Despite likely having a ton of workout shoes already, the fit father who has everything will still wear out their running shoes eventually.

Pick shoes that are lightweight, comfortable, and have five-star online reviews, such as Under Armor, Nike, or Adidas brands.

Home Gym Decor

If the man in your life has a home gym or is thinking about creating one, what better way to make their fitness space more inviting than the gift of home gym decor?

You might choose weights, a weight rack, gym mats, mirrors, medicine balls, exercise balls, resistance bands, jump ropes, workout-themed wall decor, or even a television to make a fit father's home gym an area he'll love spending time in.

Exercise and Food Journals

If the fit fathers in your life work out routinely and follow healthy meal plans, they will appreciate fitness and food journals to track daily exercise and their food intake.

The journals don't have to be fancy, but being able to track healthy lifestyle habits is one of the best ways to maintain them for a lifetime.

Resistance Band Set

Resistance bands make phenomenal fitness gifts for men because they offer superior workouts without taking up much space or breaking the bank.

Consider getting your loved one a set of bands of varying resistances this holiday season!

Portable Home Gyms

One of the best ways for your favorite fit fathers to train when they're on the go, or if they don't have a lot of space to set up a home gym, is equipment from this list of the best portable home gyms.

Additionally, Gorilla Bow portable gym equipment is another excellent option.

Most portable gyms consist of a series of bars, pulleys, resistance bands, and more that you can easily take with you or move around throughout your home as needed.

Your entire family will love this fitness gift idea for men!

Heated Neck Massager

What better way for fit fathers to relax and unwind while watching a movie or taking a nap than with a heated neck massager?

It helps stimulate blood flow, reduce muscle soreness and tightness, reduce stress, and optimize relaxation.

Your entire family can reap the benefits of this superior fitness gift for men, and even you and your kids!

Weightlifting Grips

Fit fathers of all ages will adore receiving weightlifting grips this holiday season to enhance their strength-training workouts.

They'll be able to lift heavier weights using a superior form, without their grip giving out before they achieve maximum force.

While a simple, inexpensive gift idea, weightlifting grips can dramatically improve fit fathers' workouts!

Hydro Bag

What's great about a hydro bag is that you simply fill it with water to create an exceptional resistance workout!

When you're not using the hydro bag, you can empty it and store it in a small space or take it with your while traveling.

The fit fathers in your life will love this innovative fitness gift idea that offers an array of unique strength-training workout options!

Men's Cookbook

In many cases, men's cookbooks contain simple recipes that don't involve a lot of extra preparation.

If the favorite fit fathers in your life have an interest in cooking, consider a healthy men's cookbook that offers grilling recipes or easy-to-make entrees that don't take much time to make.

Health Food Gift Card

Not all men love to cook, while others simply don't have much time in their busy schedules to do so.

If this is true for your spouse, dad, or son, choose gift cards to a health food store or restaurant that allows your favorite fit fathers to eat nutritious meals when they're on the go or tight on time.

Ab Roller

If your fit fathers don't already have an ab roller, it makes the perfect fitness gift for men.

Ab roller workouts are some of the best ways to tighten and tone up the midsection and get six-pack abs!

Furthermore, fit fathers can easily take ab rollers with them to work or while traveling.

Sports Socks

While fit fathers likely already have workout socks, they tend to wear out quickly.

So, you can't go wrong when adding sports socks to your list of favorite fitness gifts for men.

Find out if the men in your life prefer short or long sports socks before replenishing their stock!

Breathable Underwear

Like socks, underwear doesn't last forever.

If your fit fathers need new undergarments, choose those specifically designed for fitness, especially supportive, comfortable, and breathable ones!
