20 Stylish Sporty Gifts For The Fitness Lovers In Your Life (Including You)

Gone are the days when the extent of gym-wear was an old gray tee shirt and a pair of rolled-up Soffe shorts. (Simpler times, yes, but where's the fun in that?) These days, athleisure gifts are one of the most exciting things for many people to unwrap during the holidays — the gear is on a whole new level, and the styles are chicer than ever.

For one, there's something about an amazing gym outfit that makes any workout seem better. Maybe it's the high-performing fabrics and technology, or maybe it's the confidence that comes along with wearing something you love.

But the beauty of athleisure is that it's not just confined to the gym, too. Chic leggings fit in just as well at brunch as they do at boot camp, and a trendy sweater or jacket takes any ensemble from studio to street in a flash. So whether you actually went to SoulCycle or you just look like it, no one will ever have to know.

These 20 sporty picks are the perfect gifts this holiday season — snag them for the fitness fiend in your life, add them to your own wish list, or invest in them for yourself. (After all, if you have a New Year's resolution to get stronger or be more active, these are the perfect jump start.)
