With the holiday season upon us, stress can often times reach new levels. Too often finding the perfect gift turns into another item on our "have-to-do" list instead of something we enjoy. In an effort to reduce the hassle of holiday shopping, we've collected a few gift ideas for the frequent gym-goer.
Of course we're going to recommend this, right? A good water bottle and a solid protein shaker are both staples in any gym-goer's bag, and the BlenderBottle SportMixer gets you both in one. Stay hydrated during your workout, then, using the BlenderBall wire whisk, whip up a smooth recovery shake with minimal effort.
2. Gym Bag
A durable gym bag is a must-have for any gym-frequenter. Carrying a gym bag can be a real time-saver if you're hitting the gym before or after work or school by keeping a change of clothes handy for your post-workout activities.
3. Gym Shoes
Everybody appreciates a new pair of shoes, and some perform better than others in the gym. A nice athletic shoe, specific to your gym-goer's purpose (running, lifting, racquetball, etc.) would no doubt be appreciated this holiday season.
4. Arm Band
A common gym annoyance: gym shorts without pockets. Make sure your gym-goer isn't left holding their iPod the entire time by gifting a solid arm band to keep the gadget out of the way, but the tunes rolling.
A good pair of headphones can go a long way. As a general rule, keep an eye out for dedicated running or workout headphones, which are generally designed to stay in place better than standard ones.
6. iTunes Gift Card
Keeping the workout playlist fresh can play a major role in staying motivated at the gym. An iTunes gift card is an easy, last minute gift or stocking stuffer for any gym-goer.
