Random acts of kindness are amazing and there are tons of great ideas to fit them into your everyday life. One area that I haven’t seen a lot of random acts of kindness is the GYM! I love working out and decided I wanted to start doing a random act of kindness at the gym to really brighten someone’s day.
Random Act of Kindess at the Gym
As a busy mom getting to the gym can sometimes be a minor miracle! I know that this is true for so many people. Everyone is leading busy lives and making time for fitness should be celebrated more then it is.
I started thinking about ways I could make the day of someone at the gym. It doesn’t take much to do a random act of kindness. I have honestly noticed something as small as when someone holds the door for me.
One thing I love after a good workout is a SNACK. Typically I will head home and eat a chocolate raspberry protein pudding cup. There are days that I have to run errands after my gym time. This is when I like to have a protein bar or snack to eat in the car.
A Snack is Where It’s At
If I like to have a snack after my work out then I know other people probably would love that too. What better random act of kindness at the gym then a healthy treat?
I decided to make some cute gift tags that I could attach to a protein or snack bar. These are easy to keep in my purse or gym bag. I would love to be able to share my favorite protein packed mudslide smoothie with someone…but that would be a little hard to transport, LOL!
On my way out of the gym I can hand one to someone I see or just sit it on someone’s bag in the locker room.
I am hoping this random act of kindness at the gym will help keep someone motivated to keep reaching toward their fitness goals.

I print these off on white cardstock and use my paper trimmer to cut them. Adding a little ribbon to attach the tag to the snack bar…and DONE!
