Christmas Gifts For Gym Junkies


If you have a friend or family member who’s an absolute exercise-nut, you may be stumped at ideas for Christmas presents. They’re bound to have everything they need – surely? To help you out, here are some quirky gift ideas for fitness fanatics.

Skipping Rope

Simple, effective, and can be done pretty much anywhere. And there’s even a skipping rope that can be folded up and taken anywhere – it’s light, convenient, cheap, and can burn more calories-per-minute than a treadmill. 


Headphones are a fitness-fanatic’s best friend. Whether they favour music, audio-books, or radio shows – headphones will bring them the motivation, distraction and entertainment they need to push out that extra mile (or push-up). It might be an idea to buy a pair that double-up as ear-warmers for the cold weather, or 'Zippy' ones that are knot-free. 

A Home-Exercise Program

Even the most hardened gym-junkie needs to try something new every now and again. A great way to introduce some new exercises to your lifestyle is through programs from fitness professionals. This could be in the form of a book or a DVD. You could even sign them up to an Instructor Live subscription – an online streaming service with well over 1000 workouts to choose from.

Fitness Watch

Activity trackers are a great addition to anyone starting out in the fitness world and wanting to see improvement or for those already gym-pro's. There's a huge range out there, but most look pretty slick and monitor things such as heart rate, calories burnt, steps walked and even sleep patterns. 


Even for non-gym freaks this is still a snazzy present that fails to dissapoint! Basically a spruced up food blender that is unstoppable, it makes life quicker and easier for making soups, smoothies and breaking down the toughest fruits into a seed-free drink. 

Yoga Socks

Yep that's right - gone are the days of cold feet on hard, sticky floors, you can now get non-stick yoga socks with space for each of your toes (or there is a toeless variety). So you can still pull out some daring vinyasa moves, but this time with cosy, clean feet.

Healthy Hamper

It would be hard to find a fitness fanatic that isn't health concious when it comes to the food they eat, so what better present than a healthy Christmas hamper full of guilt-free goodies? There are plenty on Yumbles or you could have a go at making your own by collecting a range of healthy treats to present in a festive hamper.
