42 Fitness Gifts for All Types of Exercisers in 2022: Lululemon, Outdoor Voices, Bala, Theragun, Nike, Apple


Since we’re always testing the latest in fitness and wellness at SELF, it should come as no surprise that we get a certain thrill from curating the best fitness gifts every year. On our list this holiday season, you’ll find lots of SELF Certified, editor-approved products and services, as well as plenty of other wellness devices and fitness favorites we’ve charted throughout the years (including our 2022 SELF Home Fitness Award winners). These can help everyone on your list keep up their routines and round out their home gyms—from under-the-desk exercisers to ugly (read: trendy) recovery shoes to sweat-ready earbuds.

Ahead, we’ve selected a wide array of delightful and useful fitness gift ideas for every kind of workout devotee, including hard-core runners, fitness lovers who live in tiny apartments, outdoor recreationalists, and new moms who love to move. You’ll find easy-to-wear exercise dresses, handy home gym equipment, soothing massagers for post-workout recovery (and a little self-care), and fitness trackers that help them meet their goals—all from popular brands like Nike, Lululemon, Bala, Outdoor Voices, Apple, Therabody, and more. Keep in mind: December is basically upon us, so the sooner you order for holiday gifts, the less you have to stress about shipping delays.
