Do you happen to know someone who is fitness junkie, or a straight-up avid gym goer? Then make their holidays more lively this year by giving them any of the following items that we have specifically tailored to meet a lifter’s Christmas wishlist:
Nylon weightlifting straps
Why you should get them this item: Whether or not your dear one is a noob or a pro in the gym, nothing beats having a pair of good quality lifting straps on hand. Besides, for people who are just starting up with their lifting journey, it’s not the strength and stamina that they should worry about, but more of their grip. Essentially, if the grip gives out, the workout may end up a disaster. So remember to remind them to put safety first, especially when lifting heavy weights. Give your loved ones this Christmas a pair of durable, nylon weightlifting straps.
Why you should get them this item: Every gym goer has probably experienced muscle soreness and tightness, and it is not new to them, especially if they train on a regular basis. Foam rolling, although the relativity on how it can improve DOMS and other related symptoms to it remain unresearched, is a great way to ease muscle pain and even improve flexibility. Simply think of it this way: getting them their very own foam roller as Christmas present is like giving them the ability to easily get a “massage” anytime they wish to, and at a significantly lower cost! When buying a foam roller, be wary of the quality. Spend a little more on foam rollers that are made of rubber as they are often very durable and will definitely last for longer periods.
Why you should get them this item: Simply put, music is ergogenic. Meaning, it can enhance once’s physical performance, without even having to infiltrate the body, as opposed to how PE substances do. Additionally, music has the ability to reduce the body’s fatigue, both physically and mentally. Gifting your gym-loving dear one with a pair of high-quality, wireless headphones is pretty much comparable to taking them to Nirvana during their workouts. With good hype music, an explosive bass, and high-quality headphones, they will surely take their workouts to an entirely different level. And who knows, perhaps it’s just the good headphones that they are waiting for so that they would finally smash record-breaking PR’s.
Comfortable gym shirts
Why you should get them this item: While this may seem cliche, and an absolute no-brainer, gifting a gym fanatic with a few comfortable gym shirts for them to rock in the gym is surely a good move this Christmas. However, consider the type of fabric when shopping for these shirts. If at all possible, consider getting ones that are made of cotton and polyester. Combined, these two give the shirt the ability to stretch, allowing flexible movements without compromising comfort, plus they guarantee the perfect fit. However, avoid shirts that are made of nylon as this material tends to be “slippery” and you don’t want them setting-up on the bench or putting the bar on their traps with the risk of slipping.
