Gifts for At-Home Workouts

Gift Guide 2024 | Fleet Feet

Updated on

From garage gyms to stationary bikes (or both!), lots of people have built home workout routines over the last few years.

Home workouts have major perks compared to a public gym. Two of the biggest? No travel time and no waiting for machines. Luckily for you, home gyms are never finished, so there’s always something that will make their spot just a little bit better.

As part of our Gift Guide For Runners, our Fleet Feet Editors have picked out our favorite gifts for the people in your life who love to workout at home. From high-tech watches and lightweight shorts to performance tops and insulated water bottles, we compiled a list of the best gifts for at-home workouts that will put a smile on their face.

[This article is part of our 2024 Gift Guide for Runners. See all the best gifts for runners by price, category and more. Can’t make up your mind? No worries. Check out our gift cards for a gift that keeps on giving.]

Garmin Forerunner 265

$450

Yes, the Garmin Forerunner 265 is a great running watch, thanks to its long battery life, built-in GPS and brilliant display. But did you know it also tracks other workouts?

The Forerunner counts steps and floors climbed, tracks strength training and indoor rowing, and it can log that Pilates class too. Need more? How about wrist-based heart rate, sleep monitoring and music?

For those people who work out at home, the Forerunner 265 has pretty much every type of workout covered.

Feetures Elite Light Cushion Socks

$18

There isn’t anything specific about the Elite that makes it better for a home workout than for a marathon. But we love it because it can do both and then some.

The Elite features targeted compression and an anatomical design, which helps keep blisters at bay. High-density cushioning feels great underfoot, and sweat-wicking fibers help manage moisture. With a heel tab that protects the Achilles from rubbing, the Feetures Elite Light Cushion is the do-anything sock that every athlete will love.

For people with home gyms, running is probably part of their fitness routine. For those people, the EZ Long Sleeve checks a lot of boxes.

Not only is it the softest T-shirt in their drawer (probably), but it also has a lightweight feel and tailored fit to go from bench press to tempo run with ease. Long sleeves layer well under a jacket, and a touch of spandex lets it stretch for any yoga pose.

Give the Gift of Massage

OOFOS OOahh Slide

$45 - $60

You don’t have to go far to work out at home, but these babies will make every step more enjoyable.

OOFOS’ OOfoam technology absorbs more impact than traditional footwear foam, and the patented footbed design further reduces stress on joints. So for anyone with a garage gym or basement studio, these slides are perfect for wearing around the house after a tough workout.

Shokz OpenFit Headphones

$180

Shokz are great for hearing cars and other people when you’re running outside, which makes them just as good for keeping tabs on the kids when you’re working out at home.

The signature open-ear design delivers high-quality audio while still letting in ambient sounds, and the flexible ear hook secures the headphones for a better fit when running or lifting. It also pairs with multiple devices and provides crystal clear calls, making it perfect for the home-gym-to-home-office types.
