Holiday Gift Guide For Fitness Lovers

Whether it's something to help soothe their sore muscles, pretty new gear to get their sweat on in, or a cool new gadget that will give them miles of enjoyment, this list roundup will surely have something on it for every fitness loving female on your list (yourself included!)

1. Lumintrail Light - One thing I dislike about Winters is how dark it is in the mornings and evenings. We LOVE to go on family walks after dinner, but I just don't feel safe taking the stroller out in the dark. I found this bike light from Lumintrail that easily attaches to my stroller handlebar and lights up our pathway perfectly! It's amazing how much light it sheds onto the sidewalk in front of us. The light slides right off of the bases when it's not in use, and even comes with a rechargeable USB so there's no need for a bulky battery pack. A must have for any active family - I can't wait to use it on early morning stroller runs too!

2. MyoBuddy Massager Pro - This machine is incredible. It allows you to give (and receive!) professional grade deep tissue, warming, trigger point, and vibrational massages anywhere. It allows you to treat trigger points and can relieve pain from everyday aches and athletic soreness. You guys, it makes you feel sooooo good, almost immediately. The convenience is key too, you can plug it in and have a professional grade massage in a couple of minutes! No more achy back or sore calves. My hubby and I treat ourselves to a few massages a year, because of our active lifestyles, we feel like they are worth it and an important part of recovery. A few times a year though never seems like enough, so I can't wait to see the long term cumulative effects of being able to have regular massages and quicker workout recovery from using this massager almost daily! This is the perfect gift for any active couple!! Save $100 off your very own MyoBuddy Massager 11/22 - 12/4 with discount code SPAMY. 

3. Believe Training Journal - This journal is the best and I ask for one every year for Christmas. Designed by Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas it's a guide that allows you to record and plan your training for the year Sprinkled throughout are training lessons, teachings, inspiration and quotes. It tends to sell out early so order yours before the end of the year!
4. Lululemon Align Pants - aka the best leggings ever!!! If you're a leggings -lover (and seriously, who isn't?!) these are a MUST HAVE. They are buttery soft, seamless, and make your backside look amazing. I wear them for workouts and casually as soon as the temps dip. They release new colors all the time and they tend to sell out immediately so make sure to stalk lulu on Tuesday evenings when they upload fresh products. 
5. Sports Research Organic MCT Oil - I am obsessed with this stuff!! I have always been a HUGE fan of Sports Research Collagen Peptides and am as equally pleased with their new Organic MCT Oil too. This oil is derived from coconut oil, and is easily absorbed, providing a quick and reliable energy source. I add a small dose to my morning coffee and it not only gives me a great burst of energy yo fuel my morning run, but it also helps power my day by increasing my energy levels all day long 0 its amazing. 
6.Headsweats Beachy Trucker Hat - Every fitness lover needs a good hat (or like five...) in their life and this is one of my all-time favorites. The beach is my happy place so I absolutely love the graphic on this hat, but the fit and wear-ability is why I keep coming back to this particular style. I've worn this hat for training days and tough races and it always fits well and washes up like a charm. I always get compliments when I wear this hat!
7. Altra Escalantes - If a pair of shoes could change a girls life, Altras would be my life-savers! These shoes are the best fitting shoes around due to their foot shaped platform. Once you try Altras, you'll never go back to "other" running shoes again. I chose the Escalante models for my guide because I love to wear these for running as well as casual wear. They are equipped with Altra Ego foam which provides the perfect balance between energy-returning push-off power and plush, springy cushion. That, combined with the engineered knit upper and sock-like fit makes them an excellent daily choice while training or on rest-days too!
8. No Sweat Tank by RBTL - tanks that can go double-duty are a no-brainer. This No Sweat tank from Read Between The Lines is a smart choice while training and for rest-day lounging too! It is crazy soft, drapes perfectly, is completely breathable, and I'm in love with the tone on tone colors. A portion of every purchase of this tank (and everything else on the RBTL site) goes to benefit MANA Nutrition and Rolling Dog Farm non-profits - I love purchases like these that you can feel SO GOOD about making.
9. Very Veggie Gift Set from Urban Accents - Us fitness lovers know we need to eat our veggies, so this is the perfect gift set!! This set is packed full with five different HUGE sized seasoning blends specifically made to compliment all of the veggies you love (or wish you loved :)) They are incredible - and such a favorite in our home already. Last night I seasoned some cauliflower with the Manchego and Roasted Garlic blend and my hubby proclaimed it was the best tasting cauliflower he has ever tasted! There are easy-to-use directions and suggestions on each package and really you can't go wrong gifting this to any foodie on your gift list this holiday season, but trust me, make sure you puck one up for yourself too, and you'll totally eat more veggies in the New Year!
10. Lush Bath Bombs - What fitness lover doesn't love a good bath?! Bath Bombs take bathing to a whole new level and are such a perfect stocking stuffer. Some of my favorites are from LUSH - I just love their scents and how colorful and fun they look!
11. Athleta Criss Cross Sweatshirt - Nothing beats a cute and comfy sweatshirt that you can live in all Winter long. I just love the front criss cross styling of this sweatshirt from Athleta and know it will be perfect to toss on after a early morning workout to take the chill off. It will be the one piece that I will reach for again and again and is dressy enough to wear out to dinner too - sold!
12. Aftershokz Trekz Titanium Wireless Headphones  - I have these and LOVE them to pieces and think they would be the most perfect gift for any fitness lover! Yes they are lightweight and comfortable but what I love the most about these wireless headphones is how safe they are! They use a bone conduction technology that allows you to hear your music perfectly but your ears remain uncovered - its crazy but they work so well. They come in some fun colors and these really are the absolute best headphones around.
I hope this round up helped give you some ideas (for others and to add to your wish lists too!) It's my favorite season of the whole year and I can't wait to celebrate - happy holidays!!!
