5 Perfect Holiday Gifts for the Fitness Lover in Your Life

Dallas Iron Fitness -- 5 Perfect Holiday Gifts for the Fitness Lover in Your Life.png

T-15 days until Christmas, and we’re willing to bet many of you haven’t exactly checked off all the Christmas gifts from your list just yet. The countdown is on, and you may be considering grabbing some lotion sets from Bath & Body Works and calling it a day. While we probably all love a good lotion set, that’s a little unoriginal, no?


Don’t sweat it, friends: We’ve put our thinking caps on for you—here’s a list of 5 perfect (no, really, perfect!) holiday gifts for the fitness lover in your life!

Studio Class Packages

Class package prices add up—we all know that. Why not treat your fitness-loving friend or fam with a class package to their favorite local fitness studio?

Or for your friend who loves all the work outs, treat them to a Class Pass, giving them the power to choose what kind of class they’re in the mood for!

May Designs Fitness Tracker Notebook

We love supporting Texas-based small businesses, and May Designs is an Austin-based company that offers adorable canvas notebooks and other accessories! For the friend who has a stack of notebooks piled high in her home office, grab her a health + fitness notebook from May Designs.

The best part? The notebook is completely customizable, so you can pick a cover pattern that you know she’d adore. You can also add your own text to the friend, so an encouraging “You Go, Girl!” is sure to bring a smile to her face every time she goes to track her fitness goals.

Garmin Forerunner 235

Do you have a friend or family member who devotes their Saturday mornings to 6am runs? Whether he or she is training for a marathon in the spring or simply loves the endorphin-high of a good run, the Garmin Forerunner 235 is a GPS-enabled running watch that will allow them to better track their runs (and then they can write it down in their May Designs Fitness Tracker Notebook!).

This watch allows you to:

  • Tracks distance, pace, time, heart rate and more

  • Connected features¹: automatic uploads to Garmin Connect™, live tracking, audio prompts, smart notifications and social media sharing

  • Activity tracking counts daily steps, distance, calories and sleep

Not only that, but you can customize the watch to fit your own training. Your run-loving friend will be forever grateful for this thoughtful, and practical, gift.

Peloton Bike

Here’s the gift for the family member who hits up every Spin class in town: Peloton.

Lest you be deceived, Peloton isn’t just a bike. No, no, no, it’s your own personal Spin class right in your own home. With Peloton, you can stream daily live classes from the NYC studio, while also accessing on-demand classes at any point in the day. Who wants to venture out into the cold of winter after a long day of work anyways when you could just workout at home? No thanks. Your gift recipient will love you forever for treating them to a gift that they will most assuredly use on the reg.

“It brings affordability and convenience of a spin class with the accountability of group exercise in your home. You can choose from classes either live or previously recorded and spin with other Peloton members across the country.” — Kaitlyn Gannon, Dallas Iron Fitness Founder

Dallas Iron Fitness Online Fitness Program or Personal Training Session

We mayyyy be biased, but we happen to think a gift from Dallas Iron Fitness is the perfect way to treat your fitness-running loved one!

With our online fitness programs, we offer four different programs to choose from:

  • Home Workouts

  • Home & Gym Workouts

  • Gym Workouts

  • Completely Custom Online Program

With the first three programs, you’ll receive monthly curated workouts via the app, True Coach. Our team can manage your progression, create check-ins, send email updates, and keep you on track to reaching your goals.

With the Completely Custom Online Program, you’ll be matched with a Dallas Iron Fitness trainer who will cater to your specific fitness needs!

This is the perfect gift for those in your life who are ready to get serious about their fitness goals! If you’d like to offer this gift to a lucky gift recipient, just shoot as an email and we’ll get them set up in the system!

And if you’re local to the Dallas area, give the gift of a fitness training session with one of our Dallas Iron Fitness trainers! Email us to let us know you’re looking to give a training gift, and we’ll make it happen.

… or maybe just say “Merry Christmas, me” and offer yourself the gift of health with one of these programs? (As the good Tom Haverford from Parks and Rec would say, Treat yo’self.)
