You may think that the CrossFit or fitness enthusiast on your list is tough to shop for, but the truth is, we are easy to please! While the specific items may vary based on the individual you are shopping for, this list is a great place to start. Packed with lots of inspiration and ideas, shopping for all of the fitness lovers on your holiday list this year is easier than ever — take a look!
While many CrossFitters are picky about the shoes or clothing they wear each day for their WOD, athletic loungewear is a different story! When not at CFG or at work, many of our members can be found relaxing at home, participating in their favorite hobbies, or getting active outside. Athletic wear that is designed for downtime is a great gift — casual sneakers, comfortable sweatpants, and leggings, or a graphic tee or tank are some ideas to get you started.
Consider how your gift recipient this holiday will listen to their music. Whether it is wireless headphones that stay in their ear despite long, sweaty workouts or a blue-tooth speaker to bring on-the-go, either of these gifts will allow the individuals on your list to take their motivational music with them wherever they are moving.
For fitness enthusiasts, recovery is just as important as the movement itself. It can be easy to get caught up in the workouts and forget to recover. Consider how your loved one may like to unwind after a tough workout. A foam roller, exercise bands, a bottle of wine, or massage gift certificate may be something your gift recipient for the holiday can enjoy to recover from their latest WOD.
You cannot go wrong with fitness technology as a gift this holiday season. From a smartwatch that tracks steps, heart rate, and more to data tracking shoes, technology can be a fun way to surprise the fitness enthusiast in your life that has it all. Subscription-based fitness phone apps can also make a great present.
Subscription meal boxes are becoming an increasingly popular way to enjoy healthy, home cooked meals with limited time. Give the gift of nutrition this holiday season with a subscription meal box, healthy snacks, blender bottles for protein powder, or small kitchen appliances, like a blender or juicer.
CrossFit Gardendale also offers nutrition check-ups and custom meal plans which can make a thoughtful and useful gift for anyone on your list this year.
Find out what motivates your gift recipients. A subscription to a music streaming service that can be utilized to play pump-up jams is one great option — check out Spotify, Pandora, or YouTube Red. Inspirational books or artwork are also creative ways to give the gift of motivation this holiday season.
Think: Every Day
The best gifts are the practical, everyday gifts. Consider what your gift recipient uses on a daily basis and start there when finding the perfect gift. For example, if your gift recipient already comes into CrossFit Gardendale, buy classes for them for the next month. Or, if they have not already started they can start with the Beginners On-Ramp classes or FitCamp.
