The festive season is well and truly upon us and Christmas day is just around the corner. Finding the perfect present for friends and family members can be tricky, so we’re here to help! We’ve come up with a health and fitness inspired Christmas wish list that will be sure to give you some great Christmas gift ideas for your fitness loving loved ones.
With the New Year nearly here, it’s the perfect time to set new fitness goals. A fitness journal is a great way to keep people on track and help your friend stay motivated.
A workout is better with music, and what better way to listen to pumping tunes than with some Beats wireless headphones. Move around freely with no wires attached, and get the best sound on the market.
Nothing beats a fresh pair of kicks, so you can’t go wrong with gifting your loved one with a new pair of runners. If you know they have a favourite brand, stick with that, sneaker heads can be fussy, but if you need some ideas, Nike’s Epic React Flyknit, Adidas’ UltraBoost and Asics’ GEL Kayano are all great buys.
A simple, but practical gift idea that will be well used on a daily basis. This set includes five reusable containers with three divided sections that have been created to provide organisation, flexibility and convenience for meal preppers to transport their meals safely and securely.
Recovery is key after a tough workout, and the range of foam rollers from TriggerPoint will help release muscle tension and tightness and get your friend back to feeling fresh in no time.
A great stocking stuffer for your gym loving friend. Designed by a fitness military expert, the fitness dice is a fun bodyweight exercise workout game. No equipment or planning is required, just roll the dice and play the game!
