Looking for just the right gift for the fitness enthusiast in your life? This gift guide from Jess Horton of The Fit Petite has loads of great ideas!

Local Fitness Gift Guide

It can take more than motivation to truly live the fit life. If you have a friend or family member starting up a winter training season, you know the dedication and preparation it can take. From gear to grub, I’ve got a list of items you can find locally for the wellness warrior in your life.

Get Them The Gear

Runner’s know that when the temps drop, the mileage goes up. Make sure they are prepared with warm and weather-ready duds.

Hoodies and Hats

Don’t forget the post run warm up. An oversized hoodie like this one from Athleta at Hilltop feels like heaven after pounding the pavement on cold winter mornings. Pair it with this adorable pom pom hat for an athleisure look post workout. 

Even if the temps are freezing, everything will feel rosy and cozy with this brightly colored sports bra from Lululemon. A bright pattern like this can help entice anyone to get their sweat on!


you really want to wrap them in warmth, check out this down pullover. It is a show…snow stopper! With two convenient locations for your holiday shopping, Lululemon at Town Center in Virginia Beach or a pop-up shop in MacArthur it makes shopping easy for the Christmas season.

Gift Guide to Shoes, Socks, and Stocking Stuffers

Keep their body in motion with the right shoe. I can’t recommend Running Etc enough. I’ve been a customer there since 1994, it is the #1 place to get shoes! From socks to stocking stuffers they offer a large selection for the racers in your family. Take a trip there this weekend to catch some major deals. Some so good, I can’t even post here 🙂 Sale begins Black Friday and will continue with Small Business Saturday specials through Mortar Monday. Stuff their stockings with deals on socks with their buy 3 get one free deal! Keep them fueled for those workouts with Tailwind nutrition, we love the naked flavor! 15% off this weekend!


For the runner on your list who loves music, consider a pair of Aftershokz Air headphones. Light and wireless, they are a must! Usually $150 down to $119

Gift Guide to Honor Their Healthy Habits


What better way to honor their training than to pick up the tab for their entry fee! Many local runners are taking part in the 47th Annual Shamrock Weekend. Register your runner early to motivate them and save some cash before rates increase. 

Meal Prep

Give the gift of time… out of the kitchen! A meal service like Boxed Gourmet can save your loved one time and fuel them with quality foods while they have more time to practice the fit life! Healthy pre-made meals are prepared locally and delivered to your door. They are happy to honor your specific dietary needs, too! 

Gift Guide to Help Them Recover

TAO Feet Spa is a professional and licensed foot reflexology business located in Virginia Beach. Appointments are recommended.

tao foot spa gift guideRecover with the power of Restore Hyper Wellness + Cryotherapy Located off Laskin, it is easy for me to spend time there every week. I highly recommend their line of services for anyone wanting to feel their best. For those movers and shakers, a session in the cryo tank or a sweat session in the infrared sauna can bring down inflammation and flush the body for quicker recovery. The cryo-facial is another favorite and a wonderful way to bring out your natural glow for those holiday parties. Ask about their IV drips to boost immunity and nutrients!
