Got a fitness guru to buy for this holiday season? We know it can be hard to keep up with their on-the-go lifestyle. But let this guide help you play catch up and find the perfect gifts for fitness lovers.
A Fashionable Fanny Pack
Ladies, we know you face that same exercise storage dilemma so we give you BANDIwear. These adjustable pocketed belts hold everything you need on a jog or trip to town. The soft spandex adapts easily to a perfect fit that’s comfortable, too. It’s a slimmer, non-embarrassing version of the fanny pack.
Keep Your Core Strong
These wide, cushioned balance boards come with three interchangeable bases that all work to engage muscles through instability. The challenge of keeping the board off the ground (and your body in position) is not only fun, but it builds better equilibrium and core strength. It also delivers a more complete workout using only your own body weight and your ability to stay balanced.
No More Loose Laces
It makes sense to want to make the most of every workout, and the hip and core resistance bands from Crossover Symmetry do just that. Whether you’re rehabbing an injury, just getting warmed up, or strength training, these bands will take it to the next level and help you feel fitter and stronger with each use.
Collapsible Water Anyone?
Keep yourself hydrated using a water bottle that folds flat and helps save the planet. That’s the convenience and innovation of the reusable, collapsible Hydaway water bottle. Leak-proof and dishwasher-safe with a clip that makes it easy to carry, Hydaway is perfect for everywhere from the gym to the side of a mountain.
See Everything, Everywhere
Don’t let cold temperatures or the dark keep you from getting a walk or run in. Night Scout is a one-size-fits-most knit hat that illuminates the path in front of you. It’s got a built-in, rechargeable LED that lights your way and is bright enough for others to see you. When it’s time to clean it (workout hats get sweaty), just pop out the light and toss it in the washer.
Bounce Back into Fitness
This Smart Rope might look like a standard jump rope, but there is much more going on inside. As you’re jumping, it shows your jump count right before your eyes while LEDs embedded inside create that mid-air display as the rope moves. You’ll see your progress in real-time, which is not only a great way to measure your workout but motivate you as well.
Elevate Your Daily Walk
BungyPump isn’t your average walking stick. This pair of fitness poles turns even the most leisurely stroll into a full-body workout. The built-in suspension provides smooth resistance varying from eight to 13 pounds and activates 90% of your muscles while burning 77% more calories than regular old walking. The poles are height adjustable and have even been found to help with ailing back problems.
Socks Built for Indoor Training
The ability to include your feet in indoor workouts has arrived. These grip socks are made to give you stability and flexibility while helping to strengthen feet during things like barre, weightlifting, and yoga. An open toe box and abrasion-resistant thread in the heels amp up the comfort, and silver thread tamps down on bacteria and odor.
A Treadmill Under the Sofa
Treadly makes it easy to squeeze in a walk or run. How? The ultra-thin treadmill streamlines the bulk of a traditional one so it can fit into just about any space. By scaling down, Treadly opens up a whole new world of accessibility and convenience. Pull it out to get some steps in then slide it away when your workout is done.
A Massager for Hard to Reach Places
As much as we don’t want to admit it, we are mortal humans who experience knots and tightness after exercise. Back Nodger lends a helping hand post-workout. This self-back massager is shaped like a thumb to relieve muscle tension, release knots, and get back on the training grind in no time.
Stay Fit at Work
Sitting at a desk all day doesn’t have to be an excuse for staying still. Cubii, the under-desk elliptical, keeps you moving even while you’re staring at that laptop screen. Its design is minimal. It barely emits a noise and the companion app tracks your progress from calories burned to steps taken. It’s perfect for the person who won’t let a workday prohibit a workout.
