1. adidas Gazelle Shoes, $100
We’re head over heels for this 1991 re-issue of adidas’ classic Gazelle! Pick from two colorways and get ready to see Mom wearing these sporty-chic sneakers anywhere and everywhere.
For those days where a wardrobe change at the studio is mandatory, she will love this gently ruffled high/low hem midi dress. It’s available in three colors and looks just as good dressed up or just keeping it casual.
3. Tangram Rookie Smart Jump Rope, $39.95
Her reps just got a lot easier! This lightweight jump rope syncs to a smartphone for automatic recording of jump counts and other fitness data — and you know, bragging about her new record on the group thread.
4. lululemon Packable Hood Lite Jacket, $128
This packable jacket repels light rain and even folds down to a belt bag so she can stay hands-free on her run!
We’ve raved about this water bottle before on Fit Minutes, and honestly, it’s because it’s too genius NOT to share! A water bottle (in seven colors!) that keeps you hydrated *and* doubles as a foam roller?! Every Mother’s Day fitness gift guide should include this.
6. Pure Silk 3-Pack Hair Ties, $39
This desert-inspired set of hair ties will not only keep her hair out of her face during her workouts, but they’ll also ensure minimum breakage and pulling! Pro tip: she can also sleep in them to ensure soft, frizz-free waves in the morning.
If she needs to update her gym bag, meet this gorgeous option from Hershel Supply Co. It features snap-down sides that expand to allow a bit of extra packing space inside — and it comes in five color options!
Honestly, who doesn’t need a new pair of running shoes? The Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit 2 uses Flywire technology combined with Flyknit to give her support and breathability where she needs it. We’re also just obsessing over this vibrant color palette.
9. Bala 1 Pound Bangles, $49
These ain’t your bulky infomercial weights from the past! These Bala weights are encased in comfortable, colorful silicone and attach to the wrist or ankle with a sturdy Velcro closure. They’re also available in tons of different colors that she’ll definitely want to show off in her group workouts.
For those days where she wants to keep it sporty without sweating it out at the gym, this animal-print adidas top is it. Just a heads up though, you may want to borrow this extra-comfortable relaxed sweatshirt at some point.
If Mom is obsessed with closing her rings each day, help her hit refresh on her tech with a pretty apple watch strap! (Hint: these straps will last way longer than those Mother’s Day flowers!)
12. New Balance Sport Style Optiks Woven Pant, $69.99
We kind of want to buy these for ourselves, but if the mom in your life is all about stylish athleisure and eye-catching asymmetrical color blocking, we think she should get first dibs.
13. Fitbit Versa 2 Smartwatch,
Whether the mother figure in your circle is just starting out on her fitness journey or she’s a seasoned pro, you just can’t go wrong with updating her fitness tracker!
