2012 Holiday Gift Guide

Looking for some great gifts or stocking stuffers for the fitness enthusiasts on your list?  Here are some items to keep them safe, comfortable and content while out on the trail, road or in the gym...

Yaktrax run

Allow them to train throughout the winter...the Yaktrax Run combine removable carbide steel spikes and abrasion-resistant steel coils to provide 360° of unbeatable traction.  Run naturally on packed snow and ice with the same stability you are accustomed to experiencing on dry surfaces.

summit brands insoles

From Summit Brands, insoles to replace tired or inadequate soles in your shoes. The Free-Flex Flex Shoe Insole are the first insole ever designed to work in the new category of minimalist sport shoes.  The Ultra Light Sport Insoles keep your foot more secure and your ankles/knees more stable and provide heel lock to reduce blisters.

injinji toesocks

If you haven’t tried injinji socks yet, you should – the patented 5 toes design provides proper toe alignment, protection from blisters, and moisture management - and they double as gloves for little 2 year old hands:)


Not your typical sports bottle, the Camelbak eddy is glass - so it doesn’t retain taste or odors and is naturally BPA-free. The grippy silicone sleeve is stylish and protective.

Hydrapak Wooly Mammoth

To keep liquids cold or unfrozen in more extreme temps, try a Wooly Mammoth Insulated bottle from Hydrapak.  The Wooly adds Prima-Loft™ between the double walled bottle to create the most advanced insulated sports bottle on the market.

Nairns oatcakes

For a quick bite, why not stay with a healthy snack? Nairns Oatcakes are tasty biscuits that are made with whole grains and are high in fiber. They contain no hydrogenated fat, GM ingredients, artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives.  Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.


For chocolate lovers - how about the new Chocolate Cherry CLIF Shot Bloks?  Bloks deliver only what your body needs in chewable, 33 calorie cubes, making it easy to customize and track caloric and electrolyte intake during long outings and races.

Have any other great gift ideas for endurance athletes?

  1. Great list! I would love to have some of those Yaktrax. Maybe if I did, it wouldn't snow :)

  2. Seems like the Yaktrax are doing a good job keeping the snow away!

  3. I need to try those Nairns cookies--sound yummy. And boy to I love Yaktrax!

  4. That's a good list! I've got Nairns cookies that I've been saving to try after my marathon. I've heard lots of good things from other people about them.
