Gift guides for runners: fitness enthusiasts

gift-for-the-fitness-enthusiastIt’s our runners’ gift guide week, but don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you other fitness enthusiasts. These gifts are perfect for the walker, yogi, or gym rat in your life:

  1. SilverSport Silver Towel, 20 x 30 ($20.50). Made of super soft bamboo, the towel releases silver ions when it gets wet, which kills odor-causing bacteria on contact.
  2. CamelBak Eddy Water Bottle, 1 Liter/ 32 oz ($12.80). It’s durable, spill-proof, dishwasher safe, and 100 percent BPA free.
  3. Fitness magazine subscription, such as Women’s or Men’s Health ($19.80 for two years).  The perfect entertainment for elliptical and stationary bike enthusiasts.
  4. LiveWell 360 Accel Fitness Bag ($167). A favorite of yoga bloggers, the Accel bag has 13 pockets, a yoga mat strap, and a sleek design.
  5. Gym bag toiletry bag ($29). We love this anorak bag from Artsy Modern since it’s waterproof, making it super easy to wipe clean, and much bigger than the average toiletry bag (13×13).
  6. Kathy Smith Kettlebell Solution ($25.98). Two kettlebells plus a workout DVD containing four workouts — a great beginner kettlebell kit.
  7. Monster NCredible NTune On-Ear Headphones ($129.95). The sound from these headphones can’t be beat, and with bright colors like neon green and purple, they’ll be a great gym accessory.
  8. Gift card for a massage ($50- 100). Sore muscles are a side effect of exercise, so spoil your favorite fitness buff with a massage.
  9. Kulae tpECOmat Plus yoga mat ($58). This popular yoga mat is 100 percent biodegradable, four inches longer than standard yoga mats, 5mm thick, and is made using constructed cell technology so germs cannot penetrate it.
