The well fit kit… The best Christmas gifts for fitness fans

It’s a fact that the new year brings the desire for many of us to finally get fit and healthy (or at the very least, give it a go for the first few months). So why not gift a family member, colleague or friend something that is going to ease the process and give them the confidence to tackle those goals?

Whether they are already a 24/7 gym bunny, plucking up the courage to go to the gym after work, actually attending that HIIT class they have have been putting off for months, or simply looking for something stylish to get them through a leisurely walk around the park, there’s a gift in our round-up of Christmas gifts for fitness fans that caters to their needs.

From boxing gloves that pack a fashionable punch to colourful dumbbells you can use from the comfort of your home, and even funny soldiers doing yoga (yes really) there’s something in our wellness roundup to put a smile on every face. Prices start from just £10 and we have included all your favourite retailers, with surprising items we bet you didn’t know they had in their repertoire.

The other great news is that we have provided all the links to our selections so you can shop with ease from the comfort of your sofa – just click the text below each product to go straight to the listing. Who knows, you might just find a fitness-inspired gift for yourself too!
