A handmade macaroni-covered card is sweet, and as a mom I can attest to the fact that we’ll love just about ANYTHING that is given with love…

Here are some great Mother’s Day gift ideas for fit & healthy moms!

Whether your Mama is into cooking, running, yoga, hitting the weights- we’ve got great gift ideas for every budget this Mother’s Day.

9 Gifts for Fit & Healthy Moms:

1) Sweet Spreads

If you want to give your fit & healthy mom something sweet this Mother’s Day, forget the store bought cookies.  Try some Sweet Spreads All Natural Flavored Coconut Butter ” Coconutter “ instead!  

Sweet Spreads is a healthy, gluten free & DELICIOUS dessert spread that mom is sure to love!  Everything is completely all natural in the product. NO ARTIFICAL ANYTHING!!  And they have some amazing flavors including:

  • Chocolate Brownie (my favorite on a spoon!)
  • Vanilla Cup Cake
  • Cinnamon Roll (amazing on healthy carrot cake!)
  • White Chocolate
  • Maple Pancakes  (I love this on protein pancakes!)
  • Dark Chocolate Mint

2) Cute Fitness Wear


From yoga, to boot camp and everyday errands, busy fit moms need clothes that work with their lifestyle. When moms feel good in what they wear, the day is limitless with possibilities. (And what mom doesn’t feel good in some YOGA PANTS?!)  I love that All Day Active Wear offers some of the best brands in activewear. 

With the vast variety of brands and clothing being offered to in stores and on the web, it’s hard to know what a quality brand is. That’s why they’ve done the hard work for you and hand picked the most fashionable, high-quality companies to buy from.  I especially love the inspire wear tanks for some extra motivation for your fit mom!

3)  Healthy Recipes Book

I love to ask women what their biggest at loss struggles are.  Not surprisingly, the #1 and #2 most received responses for what is challenging for women when it comes to fat loss is “No time” and “Diet food tastes bland.”  

Promote healthy eating by giving a fun (and healthy) recipe book!  There are tons of healthy recipe books out there, so you’re sure to find something to please everyone on your list.  If you’re not sure where to start, I recently took some of our favorite quick & easy recipes and put them in an ebook for my clients, and we wanted the opportunity to offer our ENTIRE BeyondFit family the ebook as well, so check out this awesome sale on our 15 Favorite Recipes EBook!

4) Maternity Fitness Wear IMG_5813

If you have a pregnant mama this Mother’s Day, how about giving For Two Fitness Gear!  Help mom celebrate her bump with form-fitting active wear that gives great performance and flatters her body throughout the pregnancy. I speak from experience when I tell you that it’s made with our innovative technical fabric blends and is not just cute- but also Comfy! For Two Fitness maternity exercise apparel keeps fit moms looking and feeling their best.

5) Fitness Magazine Subscription 

I love the idea of giving a magazine subscription to the fit moms in your life this Mother’s day!  My favorite fitness magazine of all time is STRONG.  STRONG Fitness Magazine’s mission is to motivate, educate and empower women to achieve a fit and healthy life.  STRONG Fitness Magazine is a trusted source of cutting-edge fitness and health information for the modern woman who lives to be fit. STRONG’s sophisticated editorial voice combined with raw, powerful imagery and a modern, athletic design reflect the direction fitness has taken in the last decade.  (P.S. Did you see that Jackson and I found my postpartum transformation photo in the last issue?! So fun!) 🙂

6) Fit & Healthy Snacks  

When it comes to living the fat loss lifestyle, finding a quality, clean protein is a must!  There are plenty of options out there, but one of our personal favorites is About Time Whey.  With lots of delicious flavors (hello birthday cake & cinnamon swirl) and no chalky aftertaste, you can’t go wrong. No artificial ingredients… Just a clean, natural whey protein supplement, and personally, I love that it’s sweetened with stevia.  We love ours mixed with water, unsweetened almond milk, in oat bran, and with our newest find: About Time Granola Clusters!  With 9 grams of whey protein isolate and lots of omega-3 fatty acids from flax and chia seeds, this is a fit mom snack that is sure to please your mama on Mother’s Day!

7) Flavored Coffee & Tea IMG_5282

What fitness enthusiast doesn’t also love coffee?!  I am a huge fan of creating fat loss friendly versions of traditional treats, and one of my favorite healthy swaps is a starbucks knock off using Brewlala Coffee!  Brewlala has some amazingly fun flavored coffee that your fit mom is sure to love.  Give a healthy coffee gift basket or a serve BeyondFit’s Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte to your fit mom in bed… Ingredients: 1/2 cup Pure Pumpkin 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice 1 tsp vanilla extract 3 cups Brewlala “Pumpkin Pie” coffee, brewed *Stevia (or your favorite sweetener) to taste… trust me, sheWON’T be disappointed!
