Everything The Sports Addict Really Wants This Christmas

First comes the gluttony then comes the guilt. And the resolutions…to get fitter, fast. To establish a new fitness routine. To literally hit the ground running. In anticipation, here are the fitness gifts everyone’s going to want under their tree.

Monitor your fitness on land or in water with the Gear Fit2 Pro from Samsung. The “Pro” version of the Gear Fit2 adds several updates to the overall design and functionality of the device. The Gear Fit2 Pro utilises an array of built-in sensors, including GPS, accelerometer, and heart rate, to accurately track and display your real-time activity statistics, €158.99

Ever get annoyed when your earphone wires get caught or tangled while working out? Go wireless and never deal with that problem again. Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, €152.

Perfect for keeping your balanced and healthy diet on track, this set includes take away cups that you can bring with you to the gym. Nutribullet 600 Series 8 Piece Set Grey,  €84.50

 

We, and it seems everyone else at the gym, are loving these flattering and figure-hugging leggings from Gymshark, €45

 

 Zero Gravity Run Leggings are made with the perfect mix of stretch and compression. The ultra-lightweight fabric performs for your sweatiest workouts and sculpts the bum. Breathable mesh and a discreet zip pocket have you covered when you run and spin, €115.

 

 

Adidas Favourite Convertible Tote is the perfect bag for office or gym with plenty of pockets to store everything from your laptop to a wet swimsuit. The adjustable shoulder straps also allow for easy conversion to a backpack, €89.95

These bestselling New Balance Trainers – FuelCore Coast v3 running and training shoes are not only fast, but stylish. For €75 they could be yours (they also come in a soft peach and grey colour).

Work out in style with Nike Air Max 97 Ultra ’17 Trainers in Metallic Gold Rose. Nike is revisiting an original design (Air Max 97) but has updated it with advanced lightweight cushioning and sleeker lines. In tonal mesh-leather, signature accents – such as the swoosh tick and Air-Sole units – ensure this pair is loaded with time-honoured appeal, €160

 

Need a sports bra that does it all? Look no further than this Energy Bra in Nulux, €58

 

Top Knot Toque – LuluLemon will keep your head warm and your pony in place during winter training/running sessions, €22
