6 gifts for the health and fitness lover in your life

As one year comes to a close, a lot of us have goals in mind and things we hope to achieve in the next one and you can bet that someone you know is hoping to improve their health and fitness in 2018.

Even if you’re already stuffing your face with mince pies and going out for drinks, ‘cos Christmas, there’s no harm in thinking about how you can get it all back on track in the new year. The best thing about setting these goals now is that you can get all the kit you or your loved ones need sorted for Christmas pressies meaning that when the new year rolls around, the kit and the motivation is already there.

I’ve picked out 5 awesome gifts for 6 fitness types we all know so you can get them off on the best foot possible and save a few pennies too.

The give it a goer

If you know someone that just loves trying new things and new ways to be outdoors and sporty then a golf lesson with a PGA pro could be just the gift. Golf lessons are great way to get to grips with the game and rather than just throwing a golf club around you get to practise each area of the game from putting to driving.

The gym kit lover

I won’t admit to knowing everything about women’s gym gear but this Hollister cropped hoodie looks pretty good to me. I can definitely imagine my girlfriend layering this over a gym vest and leggings. The logo and side vent look great but the main thing is that it’s easy to put on and take off which is ideal for controlling your body temp when working out.

The analytical one

Some people just love knowing what’s going on with their body and their workouts. Wearing a FitBit is the perfect way to track all of your stats and analytics and get more from your movement. The Charge HR allows you to track your heart rate, calories burned and your steps which is perfect for keeping an eye on your fitness and weight loss goals.

The pampered prince(ss)

Let’s face it, we all know someone that has a gym membership but are most likely to be found using the sauna. And, there’s nothing wrong with that, in fact we should celebrate the commitment to relax, we could all do with a little bit more of it in my opinion. With this spa day treat you can give a friend the use of a spa for the day including a relaxing 25 minute treatment including a facial or massage.

The avo addict

He might be small and green but he does Av-a-car-do. The avo has risen to fame over the last year or so and we now spend so much on the little green dude that we’ll never buy a house, apparently! Rather than worrying about all that, why not treat your mates to a cookbook that will help them get even more from their expensive super food habit?!
