Looking for a gift for a woman who lifts?  I’ve tried a lot of products.  Some I loved.  Some are collecting dust.

Here are my 18 gift suggestions for the woman in your life who lifts!  (Or for you!)

Many of these are items I already have and use.  Others are on my personal “wish list”.

Some are my own products and services – need to include those since it’s my blog, right?

However, none of the other companies are sponsors.  I paid for every product I’ve used.  I also don’t have affiliate links or coupon codes.  If it’s something I’ve used and like, they are on this list.

They are not listed in any particular order, but I have grouped similar items together.

Many photos have links to that product’s website or to Amazon so you can get more information.

Versa Gripps

Lifting straps allow a lifter to work with heavier loads that would otherwise be limited by your grip.  I use Versa Gripps when I do pulling movements like pulldowns or RDLs.

Fractional Weights

These plates are 1.25 pounds each.  Having them allows you to add 2.5 lbs to a bar instead of 5 or 10 pounds.

Inzer Lifting Belt

This company makes nice belts.  I have a lever belt.  They also make buckle models.

New Gym Bag

When I was teaching, I had 2 bags – one for my “getting ready for work” stuff and another backpack to hold all the lifting stuff like the straps, belt, etc.

New Log Book

There are a lot of choices for log books.  I prefer one with a sturdy, laminated cover.  I also use a pen case with an elastic band that wraps around it.

Erasable Pens for Log Book

You might not make mistakes when writing in your log book, but I do.  These FriXion erasable pens are my favorite. 

Fancy Lunch Box

6 Pack Fitness makes lunch boxes that are pretty awesome.  When I started lifting, I wanted one because it seems like all the cool kids had one!

Pressure Cooker

This thing makes food prep so easy!

My Book

It’s on Amazon in paperback or Kindle versions.

Personalized Mug

Put her favorite motivational quote on a coffee mug. 

Wireless Headphones

So useful when lifting!

Tripod for Phone

A tripod or magnetic phone case that can be set up to film a set.  Recording your form is a good idea to check it.  Or you may want to post videos on social media.

Gift Certificate for a Photoshoot

When it’s time for an “after” pic, arrange for it to be done professionally.

New Gym Clothes

Either buy them for get a gift card to her favorite store.

Personal Training or Coaching

Is she ready to take it to the next level?  Or if progress has stalled, she could benefit from some expert guidance. 

Get a Massage Package

Buy her a package of massage sessions.  Lifters will appreciate this more than you know.

Foam Roller Upgrade

Get a nice knobby one.  Yup.  It hurts.  But it’s good.

Nutrition Store Gift Card

I’ve never gotten vitamins as a gift, or a box of protein bars, but I use them.  Maybe it’s not the most extravagant gift, but I’d appreciate it if I got one.  Or more blender bottles.  I love blender bottles.  (Hubby – you could put a gift card INSIDE a blender bottle.smile)

Hi!  I'm Tammy!  I was a busy, stressed, and unhealthy teacher until I decided to take control of my health.  I did not become an athlete until I was in my 50's!

I earned personal training and fitness nutrition certifications, then retired from teaching to dedicate my work life to fitness education for other busy women over 40.

My results are obviously not typical because most people don't train to compete as a bodybuilder.

But I believe everyone can make positive changes with healthy habits!  Each of us has a unique combination of strengths and challenges that need to be considered to customize a program that will work for us.  Science-based principles, flexibility, and consistency make all the difference.
