The best gemstones to improve your workout

Gemstones for Physical Fitness
Gemstones for Physical Fitness

We all know that eating well and doing some form of physical activity every week is vital to a long and healthy life but finding the stimulus to begin and the motivation to continue exercising is not easy.

It takes a combination of will power, determination and enthusiasm to get up early to do your sit ups and press ups, to spend your lunchtime walking in the park instead of eating, to do that run in the evening or dig out the kayak at the weekend.

This is where the power of gemstones can help but which ones will get you moving?

Let's take a look at some crystals that will have you up and off that couch in no time.


If bloodstone was good enough to stimulate gladiators to fight in the Roman coliseum then it should be powerful enough to get you through a gym session or a cardio workout! Since ancient times this deep green gemstone with flecks of red has encouraged courage, confidence and motivation.

Tiger's Eye

Shaka, leader of the Zulus of southern Africa, was a mighty warrior, known for his strength, endurance and leadership skills. He and his fellow fighters - including fierce all-female units which fought on the front lines -- would wear Tiger's Eye into battle as they forged a huge and powerful empire. This gemstone will give you the energy, focus and passion to reach your fitness goals.

But how can I use gemstones to help my fitness routine?

There are several ways to use gemstones:

  • If it is not too intrusive just wear them as a jewelry item
  • Place one or two in a pocket or kit bag when you head out to exercise (I hear bra stones are becoming popular these days)
  • Place them next to you on the exercise or yoga mat
  • Motivational gemstones can be placed on the bedside table or shelves at home - they can encourage you to go out from there
  • You can give your gemstone an intention with a simple ritual. Hold your crystal in your hands and tell it to help you ‘run every evening', 'go to aerobics twice a week' and so on.
  • Make a crystal elixir and use the water for a refreshing and hydrating drink or cooling spray
  • If you prefer to exercise at home, keep some gemstones around the gym equipment

Obviously do not attempt any vigorous new exercise routine without checking with your doctor first and take care that any gemstones on your person do not have sharp edges in case you trip over. Also do not hang gemstones from any exercise equipment that may get tangled up in any moving parts.
