Top Christmas Gifts for the Health Enthusiast in your life


When it comes to gifts, I don’t ask for presents like new cologne, or a tie or a saw (however, I love to build shit so a saw would be awesome), I ask for new workout shirts with cool sayings and logos, gym shoes and recovery tools. I know I’m not the only one who likes this kind of stuff, and with Christmas just around the corner, I decided to put together a list of my top 7 Christmas gifts for the exercise enthusiast in your life (in no particular order).

  1. Gift certificate for my gym Supporting your local gym while giving an awesome gift to someone important in your life is a great way to go! At our gym we have supplements clothing as well as lots of programs you can pre-pay and register people for. This is a great way to help people get excited about health and fitness, especially with the new year coming up.
  1. GYM SHOES!!
    I love shoes. People say I have a weird obsession with them. But the way I look at it is that I don’t drink, I don’t smoke and I don’t do drugs; if the worst thing I do is buy an excessive amount of shoes, I think that’s OK. Right now my two favorite brands of cross training shoes are Strike Movement and No Bull. A close third is the Nike Metcon, if you’re looking for a mainstream brand.
  1. Fitness Shirts
    I love our new gym shirts with our logo on it, they look awesome. Two other brands that I love besides ours are Conquering Barbell and Hero Culture.
  2. A Good Pair of Shorts
    I know this one seems obvious, but a good pair of shorts is key. Something that dries fast, doesn’t rip when you’re pulling heavy weight up your legs, that are “flowy” (is that a word?) and something that looks good. Right now I’m loving the Thousand Miles Co. workout shorts! They are amazing!
  3. Mobility and Recovery Help
    Becoming a Supple Leopard is a book that will change your life. It really helped me learn how to move better, deal with pain and improve my overall mobility. I also know I wouldn’t be where I am in my progress with pain and injury with if it wasn’t for the ROMWOD crew and website. Their online training is unreal.
  4. Speed Rope
    I actually have 3 on the go at all times that way if one breaks mid-workout, I don’t have to deal with it until after I’m done. The one I tend to lean towards the most, because it’s the most reliable, is my Rogue Fitness SR-2S rope.
  5. Foam Roller
    This one may not seem like a great gift solely based on the fact that it can cause a someone an immense amount of pain, however, as much as I hate mine, I love it!
