It’s that time of year where we struggle to find what to buy our loved ones, they may be well into fitness already or if you’re like me you may just want to buy them something that will encourage them to stay healthy.
So here’s our Christmas wish list for fitness enthusiasts.
NOBULL – DUFFLEBACK Buy
Honestly this Duffleback has been added to my Christmas list for many reasons, but at first sight you might be thinking “what’s a Duffleback? Well it’s a duffle bag but for back just like a backpack, this has a lot of advantages when it comes to finding your gym essentials, not to mention when you have to turn your normal gym bag upside down to find your car keys.
It also has a compartment for your laptop NOBULL explain
“We created the perfect blend of being-able-to-find-your-stuff and anatomically correct weight distribution. Access it like a duffle, carry it like a backpack. Your spine will thank you. You are welcome, spine”
It also boasts to be made with a ballistic nylon exterior, waterproof coated vinyl and mesh interior.
Granted it’s not the cheapest with a stamp of £190 or $249 but we think it’s pretty badass!
Fitbit Charge 2 £129.99 + Buy
The latest of the already unstoppable Fitbit family to launch is the Fitbit Charge 2 which sits in the middle of their range with slightly less capabilities than the blaze but we feel is has the most important features covered with a battery life of up to 5 days.
It comes in four colours each accompanied by silver and two limited edition colours such a black and gun metal as seen above.
I particularly like the guided breathing sessions that the watch takes you through and in the stress filled lives we all lead this can only be a good thing.
The Charge 2 also automatically tracks your sleep and many aspects of activity such a hiking and walking, it all links up to your smart phone for more in depth detail.
Other features include live notifications and wrist heart rate monitor.

FOAM ROLLERS (TRIGGER POINT) £33.60 Buy
Foam rollers are a pretty well established tool in fitness now with just about everyone using them, trigger point however seem to be the go to brand and they also offer some cool designs with camo being our favourite.
