The (Fit) Father’s Day Gift Guide

By Anna Lombardi | June 6, 2017


It’s that time of year again! The hunt is on to find that perfect something to give your favorite man in your life…your father. Not trying to scoop up another sweater? We have taken the guesswork out of this special day. From the gym rat to the dad just looking to get back into fighting shape, these gifts are the best way to show you care and put a smile on his face!

1.  The Perfect Package: Whether he is an avid cycler or curious about yoga, purchasing class packages at a local studio is a great way to introduce him to something new or keep him doing what he loves.

Editor’s Pick! Exhale Spa offers a great variety of yoga packages and Flywheel allows dad to spin no matter which coast he’s on.

2.  Under Pressure: Being a father is stressful! While moms can be quick to run off to the spa, dads can be different but it doesn’t mean it won’t be appreciated! An hour massage is a great way for him to unwind after a sweat session, or get him mentally prepped to face it!

Editor’s Pick! With locations all over the West coast, Burke Williams will have your dad relaxed in no time. If you are looking for something in the East, John Allans has been pampering dudes since 1988 and even offer a sports pedicure! Shhh… we won’t tell. 

3.  It’s In The Bag: A great gym bag stuffed with essentials would motivate anybody to turn their routine up a notch. Want to make it extra special? Monogram it! It is all about the personal touches.

Editor’s Pick! Right now we can’t get enough of the fun, yet sophisticated twist Herschel takes with it’s collections. 

4. Kick It Up: Grabbing a new pair of workout shoes is something we should all be doing on a regular basis, yet most forget this. A new pair of fresh kicks is always a welcomed gift in our book.

Editor’s Pick! Nike’s Flyknit1+iD Lunar running shoe is a great sneaker that also allows you to get creative with customization. 

5.  Throw It Into Gear: Looking great at the gym is not just for girls. Everybody gets a better workout when they feel good. Have your dad outfitted to perfection by giving his gym garments a revamp. Because who else is going to think to do that? Make a basket of dry fit tee’s, shorts, socks, headbands (for the more adventurous/hipster dad) and toiletries.

Editor’s Pick! Companies like Lululemon, 2XU, and Under Armour all have great, interchangeable pieces no matter what the climate.
