Fitness-Inspired Baby Names

Baby Names For Only the Most Fitness-Obsessed

With unique baby names all the rage and fitness all the rage we've decided it's time to combine the two and make fitness-inspired baby names all the rage too, no? I mean, there are kids getting around with names like Planet and Apple so it's only fair Bosu and Lycra are options too.

Finally, the gym junkies of the world have a list of potential names to call their tiny (already fit, probably) humans — and another opportunity to show the universe how much they just love fitness.

Gym — Instead of Jim?

Core — A different (fitness) way of spelling Corey.

Kale — "Kale! Want some kale?" Has a nice ring to it.

Zumba — How adorable, no?

Yoga — Obvious choice for the zen types.

Swole — Requirement: Swole must grow up to be swole.

Yogi — Facts about babies named Yogi: hates wearing shoes. Loves almond milk.

Amino — What Harlow and Storm were to hipster parents in 2014. Amino is to fit parents in 2017.

Barre — "Yep, she looks like a Barre Attack teacher."

Acai — Surely, this will be the name that defines this generation.

Bosu — There's something so intriguing about naming your child after gym equipment. Would you say?

Chia — People will love the name of your child just as much as you love chia seeds.

Gains — you're not a true gym junkie if you don't shout "Dem gains!" at least once a day. Make it easy for yourself.

Thera — It's the ancient name for the Greek island Santorini but it's also the first half of the gym accessory and word Theraband.

Deltoid — Nickname: Delts. That's a bit cute.

Kettlebell — No one will mess with a kid called Kettlebell. No one.

Carb — Like Barb, but Carb.

Cardio — "Welcome to the world Cardio!"

Whey — Definition: "The watery part of milk that remains after the formation of curds."

Treadmill — Looking for something a bit out there? Can't really go past Treadmill. Tready for short.

Gluteus — Yeah, yeah it's the Greek word for arse but no one will think of that when you introduce them to your baby Gluteus. Promise.

Pilate — Add an accent to the e for a bit more pizzazz.

Lycra — Your child is bound to grow up to be a superhero, so be warned.

Calorie — Like Valarie but Calorie.

Plank — You gotta make sure your kid grows up to be good at planking otherwise this name could come to embarrass your child in P.E.

Burpee — Just like this exercise is an all-rounder, with a name like this your child is going to grow up to be awesome, no doubt.

Turmeric — Hopefully baby Turmeric will have better taste than turmeric does.

Nike — Kid can never been seen wearing Adidas.

Oblique — Imagine signing off important documents with a name like Oblique?!

Paleo – Like Paleo Pete (Evans).

Sneaker — Imagine little Sneaker wearing little sneakers. Oh gawd.
