Fabulous Fitness Related Gifts for the Fit-Gal in Your Life - Part 2

Christmas is just ten days away!!!!!!

Wracking your brains trying to figure out the perfect fit-gift for one of your lucky friends or family this year? I can totally help with that. :)

**Pro tip: make sure the recipient will be into your fitness related gift, you don't want to hurt anyone's feelings! I was on the receiving end of a fitness related gift many years ago when I wasn't into it, and it took me a while to get over it. :)

I went ahead and broke this list down by price point. I've got 5 under $20, 5 under $50, and 5 under $100, and 5 that are "money isn't an object" items for fun.

If you missed the $20 list, you can find it here. Now, it's time for the under $50 list!
Grid Foam Roller ($37.95 and Prime eligible)

The original 13 inch Grid foam roller is the PERFECT size for home or to keep in your office. I keep one of these with me at work and reach for it whenever my back and shoulders start to ache from sitting at a desk all day long. The Grid roller is a hollow plastic tube covered in high-density foam with different sections to mimic different massage techniques. Here's some info from Amazon:
  • Unique Distrodensity Zone design allows for targeted massage
  • Designed to withstand constant, heavy, and repeated use without breaking down
  • Constructed with less foam than traditional foam rollers
  • 1 year warranty
  • Only 13" long by 5" in diameter - makes it an excellent travel companion

Only the 20lb ball was pictured

This 10lb medicine ball is perfect for any home gym. Use it to add resistance to bodyweight exercises like squats or crunches, use it to offset your pushup stance, bounce it off a target above your head on the wall, or work of some frustration with some medicine ball slams. This piece of equipment is truly multi-purpose. Some facts from Amazon:
  • Heavy duty, triple stitched soft covering

A 35lb kettlebell may be perfect for your friend who is more advanced in their fitness journey. For those who are starting out, mix and match a 10lb bell ($22.79) and a 20lb bell ($25.03) to help them get started. Kettlebells might be the perfect piece of home gym equipment. There are all sorts of routines out in the world that will work out your entire body with this one piece of iron. Deets from Amazon:

Knuckle lights are insanely cool. They're little LED flashlights that light your path up when you're running.
