From Portable Workout Bars to Movement-Monitoring Wearables

Although a Fitbit might seem like an ideal choice for the exercise enthusiasts in your life, there are actually a number of creative gift ideas to choose from. Instead of giving your friend another activity tracker, opt for a present that will help them improve their fitness regime.

In recent years, a number of companies have developed wearable devices that can help consumers get moving. Aside from wrist-worn activity trackers such as the Fitbit, consumers can also choose from digital boxing gloves, workout-enhancing mouthpieces and cardio-monitoring bicycle kits. These high-tech gifts not only help consumers keep track of how often they exercise, but they also help them improve their performance.

For the fitness lover who prefers to keep things simple, you can always opt for more traditional exercise gear. For example, there is understated running apparel for those who prefer functionality over fashion. There is also a portable workout bar for getting in a quick workout any time of day.
