8 Awesome Fitnessy Presents We’d Love To Find Under Our Tree
If you’re the fit sheep of the family (or friends’ circle) you’ll be crushing as hard on these awesome fitness treats as we are. They make ideal presents and – best of all – they’re all available online so there’s no need to set foot in a mall queue and kill your festive spirit. What’s not to love?
That’s the last time you get put in charge of family games…
1/ Running Shoes
Enjoy running? You can just buy a cheap pair of tekkies and hit the road, right? Actually, not so much. If you’re planning to run any kind of distance, you need good running shoes that offer proper support and cushioning for your feet. For neutral feet, we’re really enjoying the adidas Solar Glide – it has good stability to help prevent rolling an ankle, traction to prevent slipping when it’s wet and the famous Boost technology that cushions your landing and gives you an extra spring in your step.
Imagine the home workout possibilities if you only had your own weights! The problem: Where to put them? This set uses interchangeable plates and bars so you can adjust the weight as needed. Plus, because everything comes apart, you can literally store all your equipment on one shelf.
3/ Fitness Tracker
Fitness trackers are the the accessory of the moment, but they’re often not the most attractive trinkets. If you’re less of a runner and more of a yogi, this one offers sleep and activity tracking, stress monitoring, a period calendar and guided meditations in a pretty accessory.
4/ Punching Bag
Boxing is an excellent form of cardio that doesn’t require running (hooray!) or too much space. It’s also The. Best. stress-reliever after a tough day at work.
5/ Boxing Gloves
…and if you’re going to be punching that bag and giving it horns, you’re going to need a pair of boxing gloves. While you’re at it, you’ll want some hand wraps, too.
6/ Massage Ball
This simple tool is your best friend when your muscles are feeling stiff and sore. You can use it under the soles of your feet (hurts so good!), on your back and shoulders up against a wall or target specific knots in tricky places like your hips and glutes.
7/ Running Watch
Serious runner or multisport athlete? This watch lasts 24 hours in GPS mode, tracks heart rate at the wrist and has different tracking modes for different exercises, including running, cycling and swimming, as well as weight lifting and yoga.
8/ FNO Tickets
Our Fit Night Out events are always sold out, so you definitely want to get your ticket early to avoid missing out. The perfect gift for the fit girl who has everything, it’s the rock concert of SA’s fitness scene: Star trainers, live DJs, disco lights and the unparalleled thrill of thousands of women all working out together. There truly is nothing like it.
