I thought I would share a few of my top gifts that you can get for that fit chick in your life this Christmas. These are all things I either have myself or would love to receive as a gift. There is a variety of different gifts here and in all price ranges.
1. Gym Clothes
My top brands for gym clothes are Nike and Gymshark. Every fit girl can always use another pair of squat proof leggings, and my favourites are Nike Legends or Gymshark Flex Leggings (they make the booty look awesome ;) )
2. Protein Bar Selection Box
The stocking filler for the Fit Girl, these are perfect as an extra little gift and are a great alternative to the traditional chocolate selection box. They can be purchased from BodyFirst.ie.
3. Bluetooth Headphone adapter
I got myself one of these little things and they are great for the gym, so you don't need to keep your phone in the side of your leggings or sports bra (sweaty gross mess....) This small little item connects wirelessly to your phone and you can clip it to your leggings or sports bra and forget its even there.
5. Fitbit Charge HR
This is a great watch to track your workouts and activity level if you're not ready to invest in something much pricier like an Apple Watch. The Fitbit Charge HR monitors your steps, sleep and heart rate throughout the day and throughout your workouts. I find it quite motivational, and if I can see I haven't been very active during the day, it will force me to get up off my ass and move about a bit more.
6. Becoming a Supple Leopard book
This is any weight lifters guide to staying as mobile and functional as possible, it has every kind of stretch and exercise you could think of and is great for someone really looking to improve their knowledge of exercise.
7. Nutri Bullet Blender
This will change the way you make protein shakes forever!!! I have to say I scoffed when my Mum came home with one but now I use it everyday and more than she does, it is a staple when it comes to making protein shakes taste amazing and like a milkshake! Once you've made one in the Nutri Bullet with some ice and greek yogurt blended, you won't be able to go back to just making them in just a shaker cup. Any fit chick would love one of these!
8. Water Bottle
Every fit chick needs to keep hydrated and what better way to do that than with a nice water bottle thats trendy enough to carry in your handbag.
9. Portable Digital Food Scales
I have one of these and it is amazing, small enough to fold into your handbag or to keep in your desk in work. For those who are seriously dedicated to that IIFYM life, and want to be able to weigh your food on the go. For those heading into a competition prep this would be an ideal gift as it would allow them to count and weigh meals on the go or in friend's houses, or out at social engagements.
10. Online Coaching Plan
For the person who wants to get their health and fitness plan started in the New Year but doesn't know where to begin. Often people can be quite stingey when it comes to paying for their own health, so buying a plan for someone will help them make that first step into changing their life. I offer a variety of plans including PT sessions, nutrition and training programmes.
