gift giving is not my strong suit. i am better at buying little “this made me think of you” gifts throughout the year than i am at rallying around the holidays.
in case you are like me, and in case you are scrambling to get some last minute goodies for the fitness lovers in your life, let me share my favorite “must have” gifts that have changed my gym life for the better.
the classic blender bottle
my all-time favorite gym drink container is the classic blender bottle. i have it in 5 colors and its my go-to for water, my favorite intra-workout drink, and a protein shake post-workout. i recommend getting this version, which has the classic shape and a loop on top, which is handy for carrying or attaching your keys. ($9.50)
arguably the best gift i’ve ever received - in terms of that it literally changed my gym routine for the better and i never would’ve gotten them for myself - are my wireless headphones. i always have my AirPods on me, and they are my favorite and most-used set of headphones both in the gym and in life. bonus: your iPhone charger also charges these in the case they come in. so easy. go wireless, splurge for these, and thank me later. ($159.00)
last but not least, my favorite loop resistance bands by neeboofit. i love these things endlessly, use them with many of my clients, and workout with them solo or mixed into gym equipment. they’re easy to travel with and have a range of resistance levels, so they are great for all levels and very buildable. you can get them on amazon, and save yourself 15% when you use my code NAMNBF15. ($15.97)
