May is Employee Health & Fitness Month, a month-long initiative launched by the National Association for Healthy & Fitness and ACTIVE Life. It promotes the powerful benefits of workplace health and wellness while encouraging a healthy lifestyle to employers and their employees through worksite health promotion activities.

Whether you are looking for employee appreciation gifts or something your clients can use in their offices, there are a number of fitness and wellness products that can help employees become more mindful of their physical activity. They can also be a great way to create fitness challenges at the office.

Fitness Journals

Fitness journals are an inexpensive way to promote a healthy lifestyle and bring both consistency and accountability to its user. Maintaining a fitness journal helps a person keep track of their progress to see whether or not he/she is sticking to their plans and meeting their goals.


Health Trackers

Health trackers have become a popular way of tracking one’s health and fitness. For those wanting to spend a little more on promotional products, possibly for a special giveaway or incentive, this item is sure to be a popular tool in promoting a healthier lifestyle to its recipient.


Jump Ropes

Jumping at even a very moderate rate can burn 10-16 calories a minute. It’s a quick way to burn a ton of calories. In fact, 10 minutes of skipping rope is almost equivalent to running an 8-minute-mile.



Pedometers are an easy way to create a fitness challenge at work. They can be especially helpful for employees who sit at desks to be more mindful of their need to get up and move around more throughout the day.


Resistance Band Kits

Resistance bands are lightweight and easily portable and effective for exercise. They can help to improve your balance, reduce joint pain and improve your speed of movement all while using them on a break, sitting at your desk.


Shaker Bottles

Shaker bottles can be an easy way to promote a healthier lifestyle. Blend protein drinks, other powdered drinks or take out the blender ball and drink any beverage from these bottles.


Water Bottles

They’re among the most popular promotional products for a reason. Water bottles can be an inexpensive giveaway that can guarantee maximum exposure of your brand, since they are lightweight, portable and versatile for daily use.


Yoga Mats

One of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, and employees who are less stressed, in-turn, have an improved mental well-being. Yoga’s benefits have been so talked about that the number of people practicing it has been increasing in recent years.
