Fitness Lovers Gift Guide

By Abby Weisz

It is that time of year again, the gift giving season is upon us! Picking out the perfect gift for the special people in your life can seem like a daunting task. We’ve compiled a list of gifts that any fitness lover will rave about! Whether they are Power Life members or not, these fitness focused gifts are sure to show how much you care!

  1. A new mat – Possibly the key to any yoga lovers heart. A nice mat can be a major game changer for yoga, sculpt and barre practice. Once you get sweating a nice non slip mat will help you not only stay stable, but also stay safe. And if you take good care of your mat it will last a good long while! Trust us, it is worth the investment. This is our favorite, bonus: these are available at any Power Life studio in a variety of colors!
  2. Ankle weights – Ready to intensify your work out!? Check out these amazing ankle weights that we sell in studio. They come in a variety of gorgeous colors and are heavy enough to up the intensity but not so heavy that they impede your exercise!
  3. An insulated water bottle – If you’ve been to Power Life you know that it can get hot hot hot in studio! One of the most important things that you can do while working out is hydrate! If you don’t believe us just check out this entire blog post on hydration. Now we all love Power Life’s heat, but it can be a bummer when you’re sweating it up in a 99 degree room to reach for that refreshing water, only for it to also be 99 degrees. Try an insulated water bottle to keep your H2O nice a cool! We sell Welly bottles with an embossed flame in studio, these beautiful bottles are sure to impress!
  4. Yoga props, Blocks, strap etc. – After the last 18 months many folks have opted to bring their own props to yoga classes. There are a ton of great options out there for yoga blocks, straps, yoga mat straps, weights, and so much more.
  5. Work out clothes – Try finding a fitness lover that isn’t always excited about new workout clothes! We carry a variety of brands in studio, from Onzie, to lululemon, to Beyond Yoga and tons more! Our retail team carefully crafts each lobby space with items that go together so you can easily build an outfit for yourself or others!
  6. Gym bag with lock – Maybe the person that you’re buying for has everything they need for a good sweat. But do they have a solid gym bag to carry it all in?! Gym bags are a great way to keep all of your belongings in one place, so you don’t realize on the ride home that you forgot your water bottle, or your sweat towel in the locker room. Bonus – grab a lock to go with the bag so items can be safely stored in any locker room!
  7. A Power Life gift card – If you’re not sure what to get the fitness lover in your life, try a Power Life gift card, that way they can pick out the perfect thing to enhance their fitness journey! Gift cards can be used on in studio retail, class packages, and more!
  8. Power Life Teacher Training – Now this may seem like a pretty huge gift, but if you have someone in your life that has been on the fence about going through one of Power Life’s teacher training programs you could gift them Teacher Training or the down payment for their training. This is a gift that truly keeps giving. Our teacher training programs help people develop as students, teachers, and people. It is an amazing opportunity for personal growth, to build strength, and to make new friends with a common goal. If you’re interested in giving teacher training as a gift, visit our training page and find the appropriate city and training, send an email to the lead and we will be in touch!

Happy gifting!

About Kirk: 

Kirk was working 80-hour weeks and wearing his shoulders as earrings when he found yoga in 2005. Forever the competitive athlete, he loved the physicality of yoga. When the spiritual and philosophical side of yoga were exposed to him, Kirk was hooked. Yoga provided him with what other activities couldn’t -- the ability to foster the benefits of practice both on and off of the mat. Yoga was something that Kirk could bring into all aspects of his life. 

Kirk knows that yoga can be intimidating, so he crafts a class that is playful and inviting, while still being challenging and safe. His creatively planned classes build strength and flexibility in your body and mind while establishing clarity, giving you more confidence to overcome obstacles in your life, and keeping you injury-free. His classes are themed with a message that is relatable and will inspire you to take it with you off your mat. Kirk has been teaching yoga since 2008 and lead his first teacher training in 2012. Where Kirk truly shines is in coaching, developing and bringing out the best in others.  

Kirk enjoys traveling (40+ countries to date!), snowboarding, and cherishes time with his wife and two daughters. 

About Christen: 

Christen Bakken’s yoga journey began in 1998 in a Bikram studio that provided a safe and secure place to practice. She saw the yoga mat as a place to remember her purpose and a place to play. As she continued her studies and began her journey to teaching in 2006, Christen infused yoga classes with devotion and the yoga mat became a place of personal transformation and healing. Her classes are filled with laughter, song, sweat, and usually heart openers. In 2013, Christen began training yoga teachers. This is the place where she finds the most joy - in community with folks looking to grow and be of greater service in their homes, on their mats, and in the world. Over the years, she has led trainings in Denver, the Midwest, Florida, and now abroad. She has trained in continuing education modules, 200-hour, 300-hour, and 500-hour programs. Beyond the mat, Christen is a passionate adventure seeker - she loves to bike, snowboard, and spend time with her husband and pups. She sees each day as a blessing and hopes to remind all who interact with her of this truth.
