Looking for an awesome gift for the gym rat, downward-dogger, CrossFit freak, protein powder and kale-hoarding health nut in your life this holiday season? We’ve put together five health and fitness-inspired gifts that your sporty friends would love to unwrap this Christmas.
Manduka Black Mat
Hard-core yogis deserve the world’s finest yoga mat. The Manduka Black Mat is luxuriously dense with stellar cushioning and comfort. This best-selling high-performance yoga mat has a slip-resistant surface and boasts of a sleek and elegant design, built to endure multiple hours of yoga practice.
For your super active friend, who is neurotic about tracking her stats and keeping a record of her progress when it comes to fitness. The Fitbit Force is a cool wristband that provides its user with real-time stats such as: steps taken, distance travelled, stairs climbed and calories burned. It is lightweight, comfortable to wear and functions as a wristwatch. It syncs wirelessly to a smartphone via Bluetooth, and can even serve as an alarm clock with its vibrating alarm.
Omega VERT VRT350 Juicer
An active lifestyle is usually accompanied by a healthy diet. Help your fitness-obsessed sister get more nutrients into her lean and muscly body with a juicer. The Vert VRT350 is an easy-to-use juicer with its single speed setting – a slow 80 rpm that results in juice that is richer in nutrients, and can be stored for up to 72 hours. It comes with two screens, fine and coarse, which allow you to choose between low and moderate fibre. And its compact and clutter-free contemporary design make it a joy to have around the kitchen.
Sweat is no match for ultra-stylish workout gear. Gift your fit and stylish friend with a new fab outfit such as a Lululemon Energy Bra with a matching Core Kicker Crop. Style, support and comfort – it’s a win-win-win present.
Stella McCartney Dorifera Feather Shoes
Another way to inject some style into workout gear is through chic rubber shoes. And what better way to get some designer love into a fitness routine than with a pair of Stella McCartney for Adidas shoes. The Dorifera Feather shoes are ultra-light and are designed with an air mesh and synthetic upper with laser cut-out details to give its wearer a fun and modern look.
