So your sister is the one who is always going on and on about fitness – be it a new diet, a new form of exercise that helps her lose that “extra 5 pounds” she claims to have gained over the holidays, or maybe she wants to tone those abs.

She's the one who can give a long sermon on “Healthy mind in a happy body” or how important it is to sweat it out. How about jazzing up her fitness regimen with something new and funky? Wouldn’t it be a good boost to her enthusiasm?

Here are some rather simple suggestions to gift that fitness enthusiast sister:
