Motivate a Friend to Exercise With a Fitness Gift

Motivate a Friend With a Fitness Gift

After saying that I hated the look of my all-white gym shoes, I was gifted with a new pair of colorful Nike sneaks this week. And because cute gym clothes motivate me to work out, I immediately started plotting a trip to the gym that night just so I could wear them. The whole episode reminded me of the time that I gave a running tank top to an old roommate. She was so excited and touched by the gift that she was out the door in under an hour to go for a run.

While receiving a fitness gift can be a touchy subject for some, I think for the right person it's perfect motivation. If there is someone in your life who is a fitness fanatic, enjoys getting a little extra push, or is trying out a new sport, consider getting him or her something fitness-y as inspiration. Since I received those Nikes, I have seriously been at the gym every night this week. I guess there is something about having new fitness gear coupled with the thoughtfulness of another person that doubles my motivation. How about you?
