The Best Giveaways for Global Employee Health & Fitness Month and National Employee Health & Fitness Day

updated: March 07, 2024
home and outdoor fitness giveaways

A growing number of Americans are taking interest in their own health and wellness these days. According to a study completed by McKinsey, fitness classes, wearable technology, and mindfulness apps are growing in popularity. “We estimate the spend on wellness products and services to be more than $450 billion in the United States and growing at more than 5 percent annually.”

To help promote and support this trend, fitness centers, businesses and other organizations can effectively promote their brands with health and fitness promotional items for home and outdoor use. Fitness giveaways can help employers connect with employees and customers who are now weightlifting, practicing yoga, cycling, running and more – all in the orbit of their own homes. They can be an excellent complement to self-care gifts and wellness programs.

Since May is Global Employee Health & Fitness Month and National Employee Health and Fitness Day and takes place on May 15, 2024, now's the time to send out home workout essentials to employees and customers for a little wellness encouragement.

Home Workout Essentials

Home gym gifts branded with your company logo are a great addition to your corporate wellness program as well as an easy way to encourage employees to stay healthy and get some exercise, especially for remote or hybrid teams. Workout equipment gifts — like custom earbuds and water bottles — are a great way to help people take the moments that create a healthy work/life balance and provide stress relief.

Staying Active Outdoors

Hiking, biking, golfing, camping — even a walk in the park with the dog — are all excellent ways to celebrate Employee Health and Fitness Day 2024. According to Piedmont Health, outdoor activities can serve as a natural antidepressant, challenge the body with new terrains, and be more likely to stick around for the long term. Gear up for healthy adventures with these outdoor corporate gift ideas.

Fitness Fashion

Some of the best fitness giveaway ideas revolve around helping your employees and customers upgrade their fitness fashion. Looking great for a workout is an excellent source of fitness motivation. Gifts like fanny packs are some of the best fitness giveaways to prepare your team for Global Employee Health and Fitness Month 2024 while also showing how much you care about their well-being.

Eco-Friendly Fitness Items

It’s important for people’s mental and physical health to get outside, explore, and appreciate nature. Equally important is a greater focus on protecting the environment, leading to an increased demand for sustainable promotional products. Below are some of our favorite eco-friendly home gym gifts that are made of earth-friendly materials.

Easy to Mail Home Fitness Giveaways

Lightweight or flat fitness giveaway items that are easy to mail help keep your brand top of mind with remote employees, customers, or other important stakeholders. Connect with them on a personal level, show your appreciation for a job well done, and keep your team engaged. Check out these top sellers.

Here at Crestline, we have a health & wellness program called Fully Charged, run by a team of leaders dedicated to employee health and wellbeing. We asked Alicia Critelli, one of our Fully Charged ambassadors a few questions about the importance of employee fitness, and here’s what she said:

Why is employee fitness important and why should a company invest in fitness giveaways?
Employee fitness can help associates physically but also mentally. By promoting health and wellness you are encouraging a healthier lifestyle, which should in turn result in fewer medical claims.
What are the ways to create a fitness culture and how can you promote fitness at work?
The Crestline Health and Wellness Team offers contests throughout the year, which typically involve physical exercise or making healthy food choices. We have a wellness Facebook group for employees to share tips and successes. We have an onsite gym, which is currently offered free to all associates. We also have an onsite weight loss program, which incentivizes associates for losing weight (called Weigh to Go). By having a dedicated team and contests throughout the year, we create a fitness culture.
