As the holidays approach, it’s time to start checking off your gift list. But if you’ve got fitness lovers in your life, it can be hard to know what to get – because chances are, they already have the latest and greatest in workout gear. Even when you do find something new, how do you know they’ll actually use it? Our Activ5 isometric training device, for example, makes a wonderful gift because it’s easy to take anywhere, so it’ll never just be sitting on the shelf. It’s also easily personalized to any workout level, so it makes a great gift for anyone on your list no matter their age or fitness level. With the holidays fast approaching, here are our top picks of fitness devices that any workout-buff will love.
Futuristic Jump Rope
Jumping rope is an amazing way to get in a quick cardio session no matter where you are, and Smart Rope by Tangram takes it a step further. Not only does this jump rope of the future track your time, calories burned and jump count, but it displays this data mid-air as you’re jumping by using LED lighting technology. With four different colors to choose from, this is the perfect gift for any gym junkie.
Smart Muscle Stimulator
After an intense sweat session, your muscles need some serious TLC. The PowerDot is a smart muscle stimulator that connects to your phone via Bluetooth so you can select the program that’s right for you. You can place the pads anywhere on your body that needs some extra attention, and the vibrations sent through them will help massage out knots, increase circulation, and relieve soreness. The versatility of this device makes it great for anyone who wants to ramp up their workout performance, prevent injuries, or just relieve tension from everyday life.
A kettlebell is one of those items you want but would probably never buy for yourself. It’s also only one weight, and you don’t need five kettlebells sitting around as you level up to the next weight. The KettlebellConnect by JAXJOX lets you add or drop weight in seconds, making it one of the best fitness gifts for avid gym-goers and beginners alike. On top of that, it also syncs to the JAXJOX app to track your reps, sets, weight, and rest time.
Foldable Foam Roller
Whether you frequent the gym or have a sore back from sitting all day, foam rolling is the way to go when it comes to helping your muscles recover. The Brazyn Morph Collapsible Foam Roller from Activbody is an innovative, portable version of the classic foam roller. Weighing only 1.5 pounds and, when collapsed, smaller than the size of two folded T-shirts, it’s small enough to take with you anywhere. Made of bamboo and recyclable aluminum, it’s a great option for those environmentally-conscious fitness lovers on your list. It may be small, but it sure is mighty and provides enough healing power to give your muscles maximum recovery. Pair with the super-portable Manduka eko Superlite Travel Yoga Mat, and you can have the perfect stretching setup anywhere.
Of course, we can’t leave out the Activ5. The small but powerful strength-training device is the perfect addition to any wish list, and a great gift for anyone looking to get in some exercise on the go. The device can be used to enhance any workout routine, or give you a total-body workout on its own, all while fitting comfortably in your pocket. Using isometrics, the Activ5 allows you to focus on each muscle group individually while barely moving. When connected to the Training app for iOS or Android, it has over 100 exercises to choose from and even tracks important data like your heart rate, strength and progress, making it one of the best gifts for fitness lovers.
