This CrossFit gift guide is perfect for all the fitness enthusiasts in your life. These gifts range from under $10 for athletic tape up to about $200 for lifting shoes and everything in between.
This list is particularly oriented towards CrossFit athletes but most of these items would make any fitness lover just about as happy as can be. You can use this list to find something perfect for your favourite weightlifters, bodybuilders, gym rats and fitness freaks. I know this because I’m a fitness-loving, CrossFit athlete I’d love to find any of these under my tree this year!
You're favourite CrossFitter is most likely after No Bull shoes, Nike Metcons or Reebok Nanos. Wrap up a pair of training shoes or pick up a gift card to Rogue or somewhere else they can pick out their own pair.
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.
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.
CrossFit athletes put their hands through the ringer. If you have a CrossFit lover in your life, changes are you've seen how gross their hands can get! Gymnastics grips are a great gift to help protect those beat up hands.
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.
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.
Speed ropes for performing double unders range in price from about $10 up to around $50. I used a cheap speed rope for years and they're fantastic and get the job done. There are a ton of great choices on Amazon.
