Fitness Gifts for Her – This Season’s Best Fitness Gifts for Women

Choosing the best home gym gifts for the woman in your life

Giving the gift of fitness is a great way to show your favorite gym rat that you support her health journey. Nowadays, it’s easier than ever as thousands of exciting new products are out there (and you don’t have to break your wallet). You don’t need to buy a Peloton bike to impress your fitness lover! With our list of health products, you can get creative and spur some inspiration for the girl who is constantly updating her Amazon shopping list with the latest fitness products on the market. When choosing some home gym equipment, consider how much space the receiver of the gift has, what her favorite workouts include, and how she likes to care for herself after a major workout.


Remember back in grade school when you would be in P.E. class and be forced to skip rope with one of those plastic jump ropes that inevitably got caught in your hair? Those ropes are a thing of the past for a reason. 

Our Hero Strength Speed Rope has a sleek new look with a steel rope and ultralight aluminum handles with knurling and a laser engraved logo. It’s the ideal gift to perfect double-unders due to its roller-bearing handles. 

Jump roping has proven to be one of the most effective cardio exercises. In one study, a group of participants who jumped rope for 10 minutes daily showed the same cardiovascular improvements as someone who jogged 30 minutes daily. They are very affordable, and you can jump rope almost anywhere! Jumping rope is old school, but the look doesn’t have to be. 

Jumping rope is a great cardio activity that activates the entire body. It improves coordination, builds muscle, and burns calories. It requires her to move multiple body parts, which strengthens coordination and muscle. It’s a quick and easy workout for a cardio blast like no other. Plus, our speed rope is a gift that’s easy to tuck away in a drawer or keep in the car for any last-minute park workouts that can be fit in over a lunch hour.

To begin with the Hero Speed Rope:

  • Keep your feet close together when jumping
  • Jump on the midsoles of your feet and land softly
  • Keep your jumping height low (½” to 1” off the ground)
  • Keep your knees slightly bent at all times
  • Maintain a tall, neutral spine
  • Keep your head up, chest up, and head looking forward
  • Keep your shoulders pulled back and your elbows held down and back
  • Keep your hands along the midline of your body
  • Use your wrists to turn the rope (not your elbows or shoulders)


Another great gift is a lightweight to medium-weight pair of dumbbells. Dumbbells have been a staple in the fitness industry for a reason. They target, tone, and build muscle. Plus, they are basic and easy to use. Our Hampton Jelly-Bell dumbbells are bright and cheery and come in a variety of colors based on the weight. They start at 2.5 LBS and go up to 25 LBS. Red, purple, yellow, green, blue, orange, pink, and aqua, they light up a room but are easy to tuck away when not used. 

Hampton Jelly-bells are different from other dumbbells: they have a solid steel core completely encapsulated with translucent colored polyurethane coating. They are durable, impact-resistant, and have a non-abrasive coating. With their contoured urethane Gel Grip, they are easy to hold and won’t tear her hands no matter how many reps she does. They are non-porous, so they won’t hold onto sweat and germs, and are easy to clean. With a five-year warranty, you really have nothing to lose in investing in a pair of these for your gal.

Strength training has made a comeback with females after years of living with the fear that lifting weights would cause them to bulk up in a way that they wanted to avoid. Gym trainers have been emphasizing how strength training can have a bigger effect on weight loss than just doing cardio. Now is the time to embrace the trend of returning to the basics and getting a pair of dumbbells on hand for any home workout!

To begin with your Hampton Jelly-Bell dumbbells:

  • Bicep Curl to Overhead Press — 10-12 reps
  • Overhead Triceps Extension — 8-12 reps
  • Alternating Forward to Lateral Raise — 8-12 reps
  • Bent-Over Row — 10-12 reps
  • Upright Row — 10-12 reps
  • Skull Crusher — 8-12 reps
  • Chest Press — 8-12 reps


Why not add some resistance bands as fitness gifts for your gym junkie? Resistance bands provide workouts that are perfect for personal training, physical therapy, and home gyms. Band exercises are popular due to the controlled movement exercises they allow you to do. You can spot-tone and target muscles in ways that a pair of dumbbells isn’t always capable of doing.

Buy this gift with confidence. Resistance bands are naturally travel size. She can take the bands with her anywhere; plus they’re affordable. Hero Strength Fit Bands come in 8 different colors and sizes. Their latex material is durable enough to withstand the most advanced strength workout. These are so effective for beginners looking to start their band workout training. Use them for Pilates, yoga, targeted workouts, physical therapy, or rehabilitation!

To begin with your Hero-Fit bands:

Pull Apart

  1. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart and hold the resistance band directly in front of you at around chest level.
  2. Pull the band apart by moving your hands out to either side, stretching out until the farthest possible position.
  3. Hold before slowly returning to the starting position, then repeat.

Bicep Curls

  1. Anchor the band under one foot and hold the handles in each hand with your palms facing upwards. Stand with your knees slightly bent and feet shoulders width apart.

Glute Bridge

  3. Pause, then press knees out wide.
  4. Return to the starting position, then repeat.


A woman can NEVER have enough sports bras. But nothing beats finding a really great one that offers support, doesn’t hold onto sweat, and looks great! My absolute favorite sports bra is the Hero X Flex Hero Blue Padded Sports Bra. It offers total support, lifts without pulling, and the padding gives an extra oomph to the silhouette.

She can wear this often, throw it in the wash, and it does not lose any of its elasticity. Plus, the padding does not slip or come out in the wash. This truly is one of the best sports bras on the market. Women who are committed to their workouts can NEVER have enough sports bras. Getting one of these Hero X Flex Blue Padded Sports Bras will be a total game changer!

Medicine balls date back 2,000 years to Ancient Greece. Hippocrates is said to have stuffed animal skins for patients to toss for “medicinal” purposes. Since then, medicine balls have been used in one form or another to build health, strength, and resistance training. It is a crucial pinnacle of exercise as one of the most diverse pieces of exercise equipment used for toning almost every part of the body while hitting a wide range of muscle groups. 

HeroStrength “Dual” Handle Medicine Balls are the ideal product to improve her core strength, especially in the chest, arms, and legs. They are constructed with two handles from one virgin rubber mold, ensuring the product’s handles will not break or detach as other inferior models do.

The vibrant selection of colors and sizes is not only attractive but extremely durable, constructed from one single virgin rubber mold and an extremely durable polyurethane outer rubber. It features a reinforced inner rubber bladder with adjustable air pressure.

There are SO MANY ways to use medicine balls. Doing reps to tone arms or some Russian twists to work the core can provide a total body workout. They are inexpensive and easy to store. A great addition to any home gym!

Kettlebells are now more popular than ever before, although they have been around for some time too. Outdoor fitness classes focus on kettlebell workouts, and the trend is also popping up in some indoor gyms. 

Hampton Kettlebells range from 5 LBS to 100 LBS. They provide old-school training in strength and are a powerful piece of equipment to use in her workout. Kettlebells are a great way to get some strength training without using the standard dumbbell. They work the core, build muscle, and are light and easy to use. It’s the perfect gift for women who want to increase their muscular strength.

It seems that everyone at the gym is rolling these days. Whether it be to warm up the muscles before beginning a workout or ease post-workout fatigue, they are the new must-have in fitness.

Our HEROSTRENGTH “HERO-LLER” Foam Roller is a gift that helps to really hit those trigger points and soothe aching muscles from all different angles. Foam rolling helps focaccia the tissue that surrounds her bones, muscles, and joints. Her muscles can feel very tight after a long run or heavy lifting session. In fact, some gyms and trainers even offer specific foam rolling recovery class workouts dedicated to the practice of rolling out muscles. Try rolling your quads, glutes, and hamstrings, muscles on your back, hips, or shoulders. It can feel like having a massage therapist on hand!

The roller mimics pressure applied by a sports therapist’s hands: The tubular ridges imitate fingers, the wide groove texture acts as the palms, and high circular indents offer a fingertip-like feeling.

Textured surface offers a superb feel, allowing the person to apply significant but bearable amounts of pressure on both muscle and tissue for a true pain/pleasure experience. Give the gift of the “HERO-LLER” to improve joint mobility and relieve her muscles after strenuous training sessions. 100% EVA Rubber (EXTRA FIRM).

The woman in your life will love all of these gifts, whether it be the strength training items like the Jelly-Bells or Kettlebells or our perfect post-workout Hero Roller. Supporting a loved one on her fitness journey is a fun and easy way to score big points with your favorite gym rat. Our list of the best gifts for women can help you get started on finding that perfect item. And who knows, maybe we can motivate you to dive into a fitness path of your own.
