• Holiday Gift Guide for the Lady CrossFitter

    December 13, 2012

    Have no idea what to buy the special lady CrossFitter in your life? Well, look no further! Here are some gift ideas to make her (or him) smile on Christmas morning. (A number of these gifts are great for male CrossFit athletes too!) These suggestions are a mix of products that I already own and love and things that I would like to see under the Christmas tree!

    WOD Talk Subscription

    WOD Talk is a magazine for CrossFitters. Each issue provides all kinds of information from experts in the fields of fitness, nutrition, and sports psychology as well as motivational success stories. It’s an awesome magazine and just about any CrossFit athlete would love to have a subscription to it.

    CrossFit Track Jacket

    I love this hoodie! It looks so comfy and cozy with an oversize hood and thumb holes on the sleeves. It’d be perfect for warming up or hanging out post-WOD.

    Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle

    I’m just a tad obsessed with this book and think everyone should own a copy. Even people who don’t do CrossFit and just want to eat better will like it. Here’s my review!

    Stronger Than Yesterday Tank from Life AsRx

    Life AsRx is “the only line of apparel designed exclusively for CrossFitters” and they make some really cute gear! I actually own the tank below in blue and absolutely love it. “Stronger than yesterday” is my favorite CrossFit saying and it fits really well.

    Blender Bottle with Wire Ball

    Need to refuel post-WOD? The Blender Bottle with wire ball is a quick, easy, and portable way to mix up a protein shake.

    CrossFit No Slip Headband

    A headband is a must-have in CrossFit! This one has a gel strip inside that helps it stay put, so you’re not messing around with your hair during a WOD. Stocking stuffer?

    CrossFit Journal

    This journal helps you keep track of your fitness stats and goals. It’s pretty much a necessity for CrossFitters!

    Again Faster Revolution Rope

    The Again Faster Revolution Rope is the best jump rope. I learned how to do double-unders with it, so it has a special place in my heart. It’s light-weight and moves smoothly, which helps you get faster double-unders more often.

    I love the small blender bottles. I have like 3 but I use them so much I could have some more. I also need more workout clothes since I spend most of my time doing that :)

    I’m not a crossfitter, but it’s a small world! The woman who runs journalMENU with her husband worked with my husband in their PhD programs for the last couple years. It’s a great local company (and they are an adorable family) and I’m so glad to see you promoting them!

    I am not a Crossfitter, but I’ve heard great things about that Paleo cookbook. I’ve been into Insanity and BodyRock.tv lately because working out at home fits a lot better with my schedule right now. I really want the Ultimate Body Press Dip Station.

    I may not be a crossfitter but I’m definitely eyeing some of that gear! And I LOVE my blender bottles!

    Do you know if WODTalk magazine or TheBox Magazine is better? I’m looking to get one for my husband and wasn’t sure. He has mentioned TheBox before, but you just mentioned WODTalk, so now I’m not sure :)

    They’re both great magazines! I’ve just read more issues of WOD Talk, so I mentioned it here.

    That Reebok track hoodie does look seriously comfy. I would love Santa to bring some Lulu (definitely some headbands)… and a kettlebell would be fun, but they’re pricey!

    The hoodie is pretty sweet–might want that now ;) I also would like some nice BIC or Sweaty bands that are sparkly!

    A jump rope is on my list this year! I just started CrossFit about a month ago and I cannot get the hang of double unders. I need a jump rope to practice them at home :)

    Tina December 14, 2012 at 8:47 am

    @Becky @ Olives n Wine: Mal bought a jump rope for just that reason. He couldn’t do them, so he wanted to practice at home and he got them way quicker than me!

    I love Blender Bottles! I have to drink 3-4 protein shakes a day (I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy) & couldn’t live without them ;)

    My Christmas list includes a replacement for my Sonicare toothbrush & a new case for my iPod :)

    My husband does crossfit and I got him a jump rope. I googled and googled crossfit presents and came up with that!

    Fitness-related, a bosu ball for my at-home workouts would be great or the Reebok jacket you’ve been sporting in lots of posts. But I’ve got a pretty low-maintenance list this year–a new set of fleece sheets and a roasting pan.

    This one made me laugh: the blender bottle with wire ball. I currently live with six guys who are all ~24 years old and love protein shakes. We must have about 50 of these things in the house.

    @Claire @ The Lazy Alchemist: Ha! We have quite a few of them too. Mal is always drinking protein shakes!

    I want new workout clothes for Christmas.. You can never have enough! If anyone has lots of money and wants to buy me all of the LuluLemon clothes in the store that would be great ;)

    I don’t know much about Paleo eating but I want to check out that book. Is Paleo similar to Clean Eating? I’ve been reading stuff from Tosca Reno about elimination processed foods and other stuff from your diet.

    Reply

    Tina December 14, 2012 at 8:27 am

    @Erika: They have similar principals. The Paleo diet requires that you eat like cavemen, so whole, natural foods found in the Paleoletic age: meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit, and nuts, BUT grains, beans, dairy, and sugar are not allowed.

    Erika December 15, 2012 at 3:46 am

    @Tina: Ohh ok. Well I’m not sure I’m prepared to give up those completely so I may do a combination of both. Thanks!

    Thank you SO much for this list! A couple of days ago I ordered “Practical Paleo” from Amazon for my mom, but I couldn’t think of what else to get her. I think I’m going to order her the no-slip headband and maybe one of the journals. She’s looking to kick my butt in some WODs when I go home over Christmas, haha.

    Digging the motivational tank top! What is the point of the wire ball in that blender bottle, though..?

    Jaren@Kiwi Fit Blog December 17, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    I definitely want a journal. My class leader doesn’t like us to share his workouts, but I’d like to at least have them written down for my own reflection.
