Here are some jokes to try with the endurance athletes and fitness fanatics in your life.

Runners

  • Soak their running socks in water. Keep one pair hidden so you can give it to them to actually use once they get really upset.
  • Hide only the left foot of all of their running shoes.
  • Replace their favorite Dri-FIT or moisture-wicking clothing items with cotton clothes.
  • Map out their daily run and find an ideal time to spray them with water.

Cyclists/Triathletes

  • Put baseball cards in the spokes of their wheels.
  • Let the air out of their tires before their daily ride, but have the pump ready after you share a good laugh.
  • Swap their energy chews with Starburst.
  • Hide their training helmets and leave out only the aero one.
  • Fill their swim cap with baby powder, lotion or any other humorous substance you can think of.

Fitness Junkies

  • Replace their protein powder with flour.
  • Override their workout playlist with only Michael Bolton tracks.
  • Put a fake spider in their pre-workout powder.
