Finding the perfect gift for that special someone who loves burpees more than chocolate can be challenging, especially if you’re no fitness buff. Not to worry, I’ve rounded up the best gear that any fitness lover would be glad to find in their stocking.
Got an avid runner in your life? Gift them a pair of Kym Reef performance leggings. The colour blocking and sexy mesh detailing are perfect for the sprinter that likes to look chic while racing around town. Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones are also great for runners, because they are waterproof and, most importantly, sweat-resistant—these are certainly not your run-of-the-mill headphones!
If you’re looking for something that the all-round fitness lover would appreciate, a must-have item is the Fitbit Flex Fitness Tracker. Available in a range of fun colours, this piece of wearable tech tracks things like your steps and amount of calories burned throughout the day. It may sound unexciting to those of us that are far from Olympian status, but Fitbit trackers are all the range in the fitness community. Another marvelous gift for the person that loves to break a sweat is a month of unlimited workouts from ClassPass. The startup company that took America by storm 2 years ago is now operating in ‘The 6’ (a.k.a. Toronto) and Vancouver. Over 200 studios offering yoga, kickboxing and everything in between currently participate in the ClassPass program. I, personally, love this gift because it truly is a gift that keeps on giving.
Check out the rest of my holiday gift guide below, and I’m sure you will find just the right item for your fitness enthusiast. Happy gift giving!
P.S. There’s no need to thank me for all my help, but a Fitbit under my tree would be nice…or maybe a pair of Bose headphones?
