Using revolutionary bone conduction audio transmission every swimmer you know can now hear the highest quality sounds underwater, without the use of earbuds.
5.) Umoro One Shaker Bottle
Help your friends lighten their gym load. Normally they would need to carry along a shaker bottle for their post-workout shake and a separate water bottle for hydration, but the Umoro One Shaker Bottle holds the shake powder in a separate compartment than the water until they’re ready for it. They can use it as a water bottle until they are ready for their shake then at the press of a button the powder and ball will release to turn the ordinary water bottle into their post-workout shaker bottle.
6.) Nuun (stocking stuffer)
Does you friend tend to get dehydrated during their workout pursuits? Is water just not enough sometimes?

8.) Due North Foot Rubz (stocking stuffer)
After a long run or an intense workout at the gym your friend may ask you for a foot massage, but honestly who wants to touch someone else’s stinky, sweaty, gross feet? No one. So get them the Due North foot rubz massage ball and let them relieve their own foot pain by rolling over this Asian-acupressure-inspired rubber ball.
9.) Kinesiology StrengthTape
Even the most conditioned athletes injure their muscles, joints, and tendons every once in awhile. Before your friend inevitably works something too hard and injures themselves, buy them some Kinesiology StrengthTape to help minimize their healing time when it happens. They will be thankful that you did when they have the support and stability for their muscles, joints, or tendons that they need.
10.) TrailHeads Cold Weather Hat with Ponytail Opening
Being a fit-girl can be difficult in the cold winter temperatures.

13.) Withings Smart Body Analyzer
Any fitness enthusiast knows that it’s more effective to strive for a certain body fat percentage or body mass index rather than a weight goal. Weight fluctuates based not just on the amount of fat you’re carrying but also on your muscle composition. A simple weight scale isn’t going to mean anything to your fitness fanatic friend, so get them the Withings Smart Body Analyzer and let them focus on the numbers that really matter.
14.) Lifting Belts
If you have a friend who likes to lift but doesn’t use a lifting belt, do them a huge favor and invest in one for them. Without a lifting belt they could be doing serious damage to their back muscles. They might be worried that wearing a lifting belt will weaken their core, on the contrary, it will actually just protect the muscles they have, while helping them to more safely and comfortably build them.

The GoStak offers a more secure and environmentally friendly option for snack storage. You can even surprise your friend with their favorite color!

These pouches are small enough to not inhibit their workout routines but large enough to hold the essentials.
18.) Yikes ID Wrist Elite
One of the most important things in life is safety. Fitness addicts know this and cover themselves with reflective objects while working out during dusk and dawn, they monitor their heart rate, make sure they’re form is correct and invest in clothing and shoes specifically designed to prevent injury. Sometimes injuries happen though, so make sure your loved one can be identified and taken care of with the help of a Wrist ID.
Some people were born to be out in the wilderness experiencing nature. If this sounds like someone you know, this is the perfect gift for them! The lifestraw is a personal filtration device that eliminates 99.99% of bacteria and parasites from water sources. Getting lost on a hike or camping trip isn’t just inconvenient, it’s dangerous.
