10 Eco-Friendly Gifts for Fitness Lovers

To help you shop sustainable this Christmas we've listed our top 8 Eco-friendly workout gifts for the fitness lovers in your life!

With Christmas just round the corner (when did that happen!) We're encouraging everyone to shop small and shop sustainable for their loved ones this year especially. Our huge range of eco Leggings and Cycling Shorts, which you can mix and match with our Racerback Vests, are the perfect gift for the fitness lovers and gym bunnies in your life - but you need more than just an amazing outfit to stay fit in!

So we've searched high and low and compiled some of our absolute favourite eco-friendly gifts for the runners, hoopers, jumpers, skippers, weight lifters and everything in between. From the perfect recycled headphones to the ultimate sustainable yoga mat, we've got you covered for the brightest and boldest eco fitness products around.

With Lockdown 2.0 coming in to play (or should I say staying in to play!) these accessories and equipment are amazing for your home workouts or exercising in the park so you might be tempted to buy some for yourself as well! Staying active is a brilliant way of keeping your mental health in check as well, and it's more important than ever to look after yourselves, physically and emotionally - check out our 7 Fun Activities for Keeping Fit and Staying Flex-tacular for some inspo!
