1. The newest crossfit trainers

Besides MetCons and Nanos, there are plenty of other training brands which entered the functional fitness market in the past few years. Your choice really depends on the personal preferences.

2. Wooden gymnastic rings

For someone who likes gymnastics, this is a beautiful Christmas gift. Buy the wooden gymnastic rings as they are much more comfortable to work with.  

3. VROPE FIRE jump rope

During Holidays most boxes close their doors and they only way to do training is to use the equipment you have at home.

Get a jump rope and tackle on WODs like Annie. If you are looking for a high quality speed rope, The Vropes Fire 2.0 is the most advanced jump rope for crossfit athletes on the market.

If you are looking for a simple gift, smartphone cases are the choice to go with. Make sure you buy the ones with “Call FRAN for a good time…” or similar crossfit wording.

5. Barbell toys for kids

Don’t forget about the younger generation. They expect something. If you want to raise a crossfitter, plastics barbells are the way to start.

6. Leather weightlifting belt

The strongmen black leather or the golden wonder woman, nowadays belts come in all colours and designs.

7. Crossfit girls jewellery

Not any kind of jewellery, but crossfit kind of jewellery. Tiny kettebells, barbells and motivational quotes “she lifts”.

8. Multifunctional training bag

9. Cute looking wristbands

For crossfitters, wristbands are a fashion statement. The offer is huge and the choice depends on the fashion sense your better half, or a friend, has.

Because women never have enough of those and their training wardrobe needs to be updated with new leggings on regular basis. And because in winter men also love to wear training tights.
