CrossFit Gift Guide

CrossFitters, weightlifters and bodybuilders love to film themselves working out. If you have any friends that are CrossFit freaks, I'm sure you've seen their training videos posted to Instagram! Whether they're filming to share on social media or to review their technique, these flexible mini tripods with smartphone attachments are super handy at the gym.
Silicone Wedding Band
For those of you that take your wedding ring off for the gym, these silicone wedding bands are a great way to keep showing the love while you're training. They're just a few dollars and would make a great gift for your partner or favourite CrossFit couple.
A mobility gift pack would be a great gift to keep your fitness friends and fam feeling great and moving well. Build your own with a foam roller, resistance bands, mobility balls, muscle floss and my favourite, this self-massage massage roller. This trigger point massage back and neck massager is amazing too. Oh, and you gotta throw in a copy of Supple Leopard.
I don't really use knee sleeves but it depends on the person and their body, limitations and injuries. I have used them in the past and they're definitely helpful and effective, especially if you're lifting a lot and tend to get achy knees that just need some warmth and compression while training.
CrossFit can get very sweaty so both guys and girls can appreciate a headband to prevent sweat from dripping into their eyes. Junk Headbands have some really fun and cool designs for men and women to help with that while still looking good.
My weightlifting belt is one piece of gym equipment I use quite often and anyone serious about weightlifting or CrossFit would love to have one of their own. My favourite brands for weightlifting belts are Unbroken Designs, 2Pood, Harbinger and Rogue. I'm not a big fan of the big, thick leather belts and I like the more flexible cloth ones but that's my personal preference.
Those hardcore fitness buffs, competitive athletes and CrossFitters in your life would love to get their hands on a weighted vests. Weighted vests are an awesome and evil training tool and those serious about improving their fintess and challenging themselves love to have one of these in their fitness toolbox.
Books on Mindset
Physical training is only one part of the game. More and more emphasis is being put on developing your mental game and how important your mindset is. There are some fantastic books out there to help your favourite athlete develop inside and out.
That's just a sampling of some of the books out there on mental toughness. I would love getting any of these under my tree!
