1. Performance Socks

Socks may not be glamorous, but Mama will thank you! That's because she knows it's SO important to have the right socks when working out. If your socks are too loose, too tight, or the wrong material, you're likely to have uncomfortable friction that can cause blisters, sores, and even yucky fungus! Give your mom socks that fit snugly and are made of a fabric that will wick moisture away.

2. Smart Watch

Help Mom keep track of her fitness goals with a smart watch, like these from Fitbit. What a smart watch is able to do? It can count steps, distance, calorie, heart rate, pulse rate, sleep and some other important things you would need to hit those goals!

3. Leggings

Who doesn't love a new pair of leggings? Especially high-waisted ones to keep everything under control! Here, I've rounded up the cutest, and more importantly, most functional leggings, so your mama can hit up her barre, bootcamp, or yoga classes—and feel comfy enough to lounge around in for hours before or after, too.

4. Tote Bag

These adorable (and incredibly functional!) gym bags make hauling sweaty clothes look so good, Mama won't mind schlepping it from her morning workout straight through to happy hour!

5. Water Flask

A great refillable water bottle will help Mama stay hydrated while she's on the go. Of all the water bottles I've tested and researched, the Hydro Flask Wide Mouth is the best one you can buy- durable enough to withstand daily use and seriously amazing temperature retention. So whether its a Hydro Flask to keep hot things hot and cold things cold, or a trendy S'well bottle, here are the some of the best BPA-free flasks to keep your fit mama hydrated all day long!

6. Running Shorts

Since we're finally in the warmer months, Mom is going to need some great running shorts to keep her outdoor workouts cool! Whether she treats running like a leisure activity or a lifestyle, these women's adorable jogging shorts will keep her cool, dry, and comfortable!

7. Good shoes!

Whether Mama's workout involves running, walking, jumping, or even gym equipment, a decent trainer is a necessity! Help Mom reduce her risk of injury caused by inappropriate shoes by investing in a quality shoe to help her to prevent foot and ankle damage, and make her workout a more pleasant and comfortable experience!
