Fitness themed Christmas gifts are a great way to share your interest with friends and family. Whether you are looking for a stocking filler or a more substantial gift, there are a wide range of cool Christmas presents with a fitness theme available. Today I am going to help you find the perfect Christmas present with 10 of the hottest fitness gifts.
The Adictaball is a perfect fitness themed Christmas present for a friend or family member who refuses to do any physical activity. It will not improve their physical fitness but it will make sure they are at least exercising their mind. The Adictaball contains a whopping 138 stages and can help ensure the recipient keeps their mental fitness sharp over the festive period.
You only have to look at the name to see that the CoolBoard is 1 of the coolest Christmas presents around. This unique device is a perfect fitness gift for people who want to improve their balance, core strength and stability. It simulates the feeling of being on a real board and comes complete with a set of workouts to get the recipient started.
If you have a friend or family member who wants to get fit but will not set foot in a gym, a cross trainer could be an ideal fitness gift for them. Cross trainers allow the recipient to workout in the comfort of their own home with minimal noise. Over the last few years they have also seriously come down in price and you can now pick up a decent cross trainer for around £100.
This is 1 of the most popular pieces of fitness equipment on Amazon.co.uk. If you can get over the seriously cheesy promotional video it is actually a pretty solid piece of kit that allows the recipient to do a number of bodyweight exercises (chin ups, crunches and dips) within the comfort of your own home. It would make an excellent Christmas present for a beginner who wants to learn the basics at home or a hardcore gym goer who wants to do a little extra exercise after the gym.
5) KI FIT
In the past I have suggested heart rate monitors and pedometers as fitness gifts. Ki Fit takes it to the next level by measuring and analysing your entire lifestyle. It checks everything from your food intake, to your overall physical activity, to your sleep patterns and then helps you set fitness goals based on this data. Ki Fit is an excellent fitness gift for people who really want to get fit in the New Year but need some help and guidance along the way.
If you have a keen swimmer in your circle of family and friends then you should get them this really cool Christmas present. The Nu Dolphin MP3 player allows them to listen to their favourite tunes or radio station underwater. Being able to listen to music can make swimming lap after lap in the pool much less tedious and give the recipient the motivation they need to swim faster.
If you know any fitness enthusiasts then 1 thing that they always need is protein powder. So why not help them stock up for the New Year with a brand new tub? Protein powder is pretty cheap and is a great fitness gift for any health and fitness nut.
If all the fitness fanatics you know are fully stocked up on protein powder, the Smartshake Advanced Shaker Cup is a great alternative. It can handle hot and cold drinks and contains 2 additional compartments that can be filled with extra servings of supplements. That means no lugging around additional supplement bags or shakers which is a really big plus for anyone who uses protein powder.
9) XBOX KINECT
Over the last few years the Nintendo Wii has dominated the fitness themed video game market with Wii Fit. Now the Xbox Kinect is starting to provide some stiff competition. It works in a similar way to the Wii except that there are no controllers at all. Kinect tracks your body’s movements and you act as the controller. If you know someone who already owns an Xbox and does very little exercise, the Kinect is the perfect Christmas gift to make them a little more active whilst still allowing them to enjoy their video games.
10) ZUMBA FITNESS
Zumba has taken the fitness world by storm this year. Women in particular absolutely love this workout. So if you are struggling to find the right gift for a female friend, family member or partner, why not try getting them a Zumba themed present? This Zumba DVD is currently the hottest selling fitness product on Amazon and would make a fantastic Christmas present for any Zumba fan. If your female recipient is more into her video games there are also Zumba games available on the PS3, the Wii and the Xbox 360.
Fitness gifts are not for everyone. However, if there are people you know who would appreciate a fitness themed Christmas present there are plenty of options for you here.
