Top 10 Father’s Day Fitness Gifts
These 10 fitness gifts for father’s day will flex Dad’s heart and elevate his healthy habits.
1. Reebok Legacy Lifter Shoes - Dads Who Look to Brian Shaw
Your dad’s your hero. And heroes need high-tech shoes to complete their uniform and, of course, lift at their best. We’re talking Reebok's Legacy Lifter Shoes, designed with a grip to keep Dad grounded, a heel for optimal squat positioning and adjustable straps to hold Dad in tight.
But don’t take it from us, take it from Weightlifting USA National Champion and Dad Anthony Pomponio: “Best fitness gift to give a dad would have to be new lifting shoes or training shoes.” Enough said.
Your card: “You are my heart and sole.”
2. Insulated Water Bottle - Dads Who Keep Their Cool
This obvious fitness tool is often overlooked. Or in most cases, Dad settles for the water bottle his kids used in little league. Well, not any more. Don’t let Dad break another sweat without a hydration system that’s sleek and sustainable.
The Miir wide mouth water bottle keeps water cold for 24+ hours without condensation. “Insulated water bottle that serves a dual purpose: Water for training Monday through Friday and beer for the weekends!” said Pomponio. If you want to get even more sentimental, mention the company’s commitment to funding clean water projects.
Your card: “Stay cool Dad!”
3. Duel Grip Xerball Medicine Ball - Dads Hooked on PGA Tour
Golf dads will follow just about any Golf Digest tip on how to level up their swing. You better bet the PGA Players are training with a Medicine Ball. In fact, a perpendicular throw with the Duel Grip, which is known for building up your core power, will definitely improve Dad’s swing speed.
Can you hear the sound of that birdie? If he’s glued to reruns of Scott Stallings and he’s practically scouting rising star Lanto Griffin, you know he’s just counting down the hours to his next tee time. Let’s make his first swing one to remember.
Your card: “Dad you’re a hole in one!”
4. NutriBullet - Dads Who Sweat Smoothies
In between working hard and working out, Dad fuels himself with his superfood smoothie, and there’s nothing better than a smoothie that practically makes itself. “I think the best fitness gift to get Dad would be a great blender and a book of smoothie recipes.” said UFC mixed martial artist Urijah Faber.
NutriBullet includes a recipe book but consider a DIY version with his favorite berry blend if you’re looking to pull at his heart strings this Father’s Day. Every day during his smoothie ritual, he’ll power his NutriBullet and thank you for making his life smoother. Pun intended.
Your card: “Dad, you’re one in a melon.”
“Best fitness gift to give a dad would have to be new lifting shoes or training shoes.”
-Anthony Pomponio, Weightlifting USA National Champion and Dad
5. A Training Membership - Dads Who Like a Challenge
You can help Dad heighten his training this Father’s Day by bringing in the experts with a training membership. Even better, join him! Mixed martial artist and dad, Vitor Belfort has his own training program, Belfort Fitness Lifestyle, and recommends you and Dad commit to a training membership together.
Trifecta community member and dad Mike Popiel agrees, “A 1-year membership to a local CrossFit gym!” A training membership gift shows you’re committed to showing up for your dad in reaching his fitness goals (and yours too!).
Your card: “I’ll be your accountability partner.”
6. Trifecta Organic Meal Plan - Dads Who Love Quality Food
Dads love Trifecta because organic meal delivery that’s ready-to-eat and macro-balanced helps them stay on track. Translation: Delicious healthy food that dad doesn’t have to cook. Not to mention, Trifecta meal plans are tailored to your Dad’s nutritional needs.
Take it from professional boxer and dad Mike Rashid, “90% of what I've eaten for the last year has been Trifecta. People don't understand how delicious it is. I've been growing and Trifecta has been part of that growth - it’s literally a staple part of my life."
When your dad enjoys his first Trifecta meal, he’ll think of you, his favorite child.
Your card: “This time Dad, dinner’s on me.”
7. Hoka One Running Shoes - Dads Who Make Strides
From marathoner to making his first mile, dads deserve the quality shoe that will support him with every step. “My dad has recently gotten into fitness, I got him a new pair of HOKA ONE shoes. I introduced him to them recently and he’s obsessed,” said Trifecta community member Hayley Kaaren Smith. HOKA shoes have double cushioning compared to standard running shoes.
In fact, they’re designed with ultrarunners in mind. If the Olympic opening ceremonies with Dad makes you nostalgic, then Hoka’s design has him written all over it.
Your card: “Let’s run to the moon and back.”
“90% of what I've eaten for the last year has been Trifecta. People don't understand how delicious it is."
-Mike Rashid, Professional Boxer and Dad
8. Speed Jump Rope - Dads Who Track UFC Fight Wins

“The best fitness gift to give a dad is to have my kids create a workout for all of us to do together with a new piece of equipment they picked out for me. Along with some homemade cards about how strong I am!” said CrossFit athlete and dad Nick Uranker.
Like Nick said, don’t forget that homemade touch with that ego boost.
