No matter where you are in your fitness journey, chances are high you've met someone who has provided some encouragement, advice, or a loving "NO STOPPING NOW" during whatever workout you've embarked on. Maybe it's a friend or a family member, but for many of us it's our favorite fitness instructors who play a huge role in our physical exercise. You spin a little faster when someone is blasting music and telling you that THIS is where you get stronger. You're bound to push yourself, try new things, and grow as a person because of the people who make up your fitness "team." They deserve all your thanks for helping you sweat it out on a weekly basis.

1. Customized water bottle

Engraved Double Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Yes, they have water bottles. Yes, they will use another one. And how cute would it be to get them a customized one?!

2. All the coffee cards

Starbucks Gift Card

Fitness instructors are ALWAYS on the go. They have lives to change! A little coffee (or a lot) will help keep them moving.

3. A fun, wellness agenda

The Self-Care Planner

There's no doubt that your instructor is full of self-care knowhow, but nothing says "wellness" like a journal dedicated to their mental and physical wellbeing.

4. New headphones

Boltune Bluetooth Waterproof Headphones

Again with the running to and fro! New headphones are a solid gift for anyone in your life, but especially for the instructor who needs to be able to make their class playlist at any given moment.

Who doesn't want a cozy new zip up?! This is perfect to throw on over your workout clothes.

Nothing is better than coming home from a long day at the gym and diffusing some oils, fact.

8. A fun yoga mat

Everyone has a neutral-colored yoga mat. But a fun print? That'll make you smile no matter how sick of downward dog you are!

9. A portable blender

TENSWALL Portable Blender

I'm fairly confident that 98 percent of fitness instructors double as smoothie enthusiasts. A portable blender is the perfect way to encourage their on-the-go lifestyle AND their favorite snack!

10. More athletic gear

Women's High Waisted Leggings

What do fitness instructors live in? Athletic clothes. What do they inevitably always need more of? Athletic clothes.

11. A nice note

Happy Holidays Greeting Card Collection

If all else fails, a nice holiday card is sure to make your instructor's day. Really, it's all about letting them know that you're thankful for them, even though they may work you harder than you'd like!

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
