11 Gifts For Your Favorite Fitness Instructor, Because They Deserve ALL Your Thanks

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.

5. A new zip up

Aleumdr Casual Long Sleeve 1/4 Zip Sweatshirt

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

6. Fun socks

WiciBor Funny Casual Cotton Socks

Is it just me or do all fitness instructors thrive when fun socks are on their feet? They bring a little personality to any workout (and they make everyone smile)!

7. Essential oils

PURE AROMA 100% Pure Therapeutic Oils Kit

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

8. A fun yoga mat

ELENTURE Full-Zip Exercise 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!

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.

@lilyjmoe

CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

Now, this is a story all about how, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" is getting a reboot, and every '90s kid is currently screaming. (Yes, you heard me correctly.)

Maybe it was the quarantine months that sent you on a quest to finally find a workout routine that works for you, or maybe it was the lack of routine in the world that inspired you to change your habits or -for some- keep them and make an effort to maintain your health. If gyms were not already evolving with the new needs of the 21st-century gymgoer, they are undoubtedly evolving now with the lifestyle mindset that Covid-19 has left many of us with — a desire for a plan for a positive change seeing that tomorrow is not guaranteed.

The experience that an individual gets out of going to the gym should feel worth their time, energy, and should meet their specific fitness journey goals. If you do not already have a reason to go to the gym, here are ten genius effective implementations that will inspire even the couch-iest potato.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.

Luxury Fashion Buys Your Bank Account Couldn’t Justify Till This Year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

In case you needed another reason to get the Prada sunnies you've been eyeing all year.

Since I can remember first flipping through my older cousin's fashion magazines as an 8-year-old, I've always had several luxury items on my wish list of items I knew I'd never have, but loved to fantasize about.

As I grew into financial independence later in life, the list grew longer, but the ways in which I could toy with my grocery or travel budget for a month to make room for something I really wanted made the items on it more attainable. Even then, I will (virtually) visit an item online several times in the span of a year to test if I still like it months after eyeing it, and to see if by any chance it may have gone on sale.

5 Characters From Your Childhood That Combated The Mental Health Stigma

We deserve to see people like us on the big screen just as much as you do.

Perks of Being a Wallflower

Growing up with a neurodevelopment disorder and mental illness, it's easy to feel isolated from the rest of the world. It is not common to look around and see someone that experiences situations similar to the ones you endure. Even if you do come across a person that is also perceived to be "different" in the eyes of society, the negative connotations instilled in everyday life are quick to silence your voice and knock you down before you have a chance to realize that who you are is more than okay--it's normal. This is a big reason why anything that brings understanding and shines a light on what people with neurodevelopment disorders and mental illness go through on a regular basis comes around a sense of relief and happiness fills the body.

In light of this, I went on a hunt to find characters in television and cinema that accurately portray the complexities of developmental disorders and mental health.

First and foremost, shame on you for encouraging the patriarchy and sexism as you police a female's clothing choices. You cannot control our bodies, but what you can advocate for is public health and safety. This includes demoralizing rape, slut-shaming, and protecting society from illness.
