Going to the gym or doing a yoga video may seem like a chore at times, but staying active can work wonders for your mind and body. The changes brought on by the coronavirus have definitely affected the way we work out—virtual classes have replaced in-person ones and gyms operate at reduced capacities. Even so, people are still finding creative, invigorating ways to live an active life.

Whether it’s for a special occasion or just because, surprise the fitness lover in your life with a useful gift. No matter if they’re into lifting weights, running, yoga, or walking in nature, SmartGift has something to brighten their day—and improve their workout!

With virtual exercise classes taking over, solitary athletics like cardio training, biking, and even swimming have kept going strong. Even hiking has become increasingly popular as it is a safe and low-effort activity to do during stay at home orders.

If you have a dedicated hiker in your life, indulge them with something thoughtful for their next day trip or afternoon adventure.

Even though in-person classes have been on pause, yoga has become more popular than ever. It’s a great way to calm the mind, increase flexibility, and build core strength.

Experienced yogis and beginners alike need comfortable clothes. Give your friend or sister the gift of athleisure with a new yoga mat or a pair of yoga pants. Plus, they’re comfy enough to wear while working from home!

Keeping hydrated is important at any time of day, but especially during physical exercise. Make sure your mom has a stylish water bottle to take on her walks around the neighborhood or your coworker has a new bottle for their morning jog.

Even though marathons and other running events are likely to be cancelled or rescheduled for 2021, help your favorite runner train safely at home with all new gear. Or give the gift of running to someone who picked it up during the lockdown with some helpful supplies.

On top an active lifestyle, it is important to eat healthy, but eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing taste or enjoyment. For your family members who are in the process of training towards a fitness goal, send them a surprise treat that they can celebrate with.
