Last Minute Christmas Gifts for Fitness Buffs

Christmas Gifts for Fitness Buffs

It's not too late to get an awesome gift for the fitness buff in your life if you act fast and rush the shipping. I picked some of my favorite items/deals from around the web. 

GoPro HERO4 Session

Amazon and Dick's Sporting Goods are running some awesome deals right now on the GoPro Hero4 camera. It's small, lightweight, waterproof, and perfect for getting all the action caught on camera. This would be the perfect gift for the adventurer or extreme sports enthusiast. 
Garmin vívofit 2 Activity Tracker, Black

As far as activity trackers go, I like the Garmin Vivofit 2 with the chest strap heart rate monitor. This is the best tracker for the money for the person that is serious about improving his/her training performance. If you are just looking to increase activity level, then you may prefer the Fitbit for its syncing compatibility with smart phone apps like Lose It! and My Fitness Pal. If money is no object, then do your research on the reviews before making a purchase. The right activity tracker depends greatly on what you are wanting to track and how you plan to train.

WOSS AttacK Trainer Made in USA Best PRO Trainer System with Rubber Grips

The Woss Attack Trainer Suspension Training Kit is a must have for anyone who is training at home or anyone who has to travel a lot for work. Resistance bands are great, but suspension training seriously ups the core work and the calorie burn. You are probably more familiar with the TRX system, but the Woss kit has the quality for a fraction of the price. This suspension training kit includes a door anchor and mounting kit so that you can train anywhere. Mount it to a tree to train outside or use the door anchor to train in your hotel room. The kit comes with an exercise guide poster to show you how to work the total body.

Lastly, anyone that trains hard will always appreciate some new activewear. When in doubt on size and preferences, buy a gift certificate. Fabletics and Lululemon carry menswear. Athleta does not. Dick's Sporting Goods and Sports Authority are great options, as well, since they carry all the top activewear brands (Nike, Under Armour, etc.), footwear, and the gamut on exercise gear/equipment.
