Ladies are you struggling for last minute Christmas gift ideas for a man in your life? Whether you’re shopping for your beau, friend, brother or dad this gift cheat sheet will make any CrossFit man happy! I’ve listed several ideas that vary in price range so I’m sure you’ll find some gift inspiration.
This is no normal foam roller guys, as described by Rogue, it’s a meat grinder for your muscles! As scary as that sounds the rumble roller is a gift sent from heaven! When properly used the roller feels amazing and can help relieve muscular pain and tightness. Personally I make it a point to roll out every single day before a WOD to help loosen my muscles up. *Sidenote: Target also sells a softer and cheaper version of this!*
We all know half the fun of CrossFit is decking yourself out in all the stylish gear. If you’re not WOD-ing in some fresh looking Nano’s then you’re out of loop! Reebok allows you to use your creativity to customize your own, or you can choose from their pre-made color schemes.
I think style from the 80’s is making a comeback and I’m totally pumped about it! Black and grey are out and neon colors are all over the place. Box Junkie just released a plethora of bright color t-shirts with the classic BJ logo along the front.
For as much abuse as we put our bodies through each week, a really good massage is much needed. Our men don’t usually splurge on spa-like treatments for themselves but the foam roller can only help out those lingering knots and tight muscles so much. Plus it’ll save your poor little fingers from doing the work yourself! I try to see my massage therapist at least once every 4-6 weeks. She’s a fitness enthusiast herself so thankfully she is very in tune with an athletes aches and pains.
I love getting creative with my protein shakes by throwing it in the blender with some spinach, almond butter, banana and almond milk. Most men on the other hand don’t feel like messing with all the extra ingredients and are anxious to get that protein into their bodies immediately after a WOD. Luckily Formulx not only tastes great with just water but it’s extremely clean, grass fed and a non-GMO whey protein isolate that is all natural.
These babies are hot off the press! Reebok has some great board shorts for men but they can be a bit pricey. Box Junkie’s shorts are cost effective and designed with comfort and functionality in mind. Take your pick between black, grey and army green.
Time to toss the preschool jump rope in the trash! This jump rope will take your double under’s to the next level thanks to the rotating handle. FYI- Don’t be alarmed when your beau comes home with whip marks all over his arms and legs. The quickness of the cable takes a while to get used to 🙂
These may have a hefty price tag but your man will be thanking you if he is coming home from the gym with burn marks all over his legs from rope climbs. It’s really a win-win situation, no more rope burn for your man and YOU won’t have to listen to all the whining when he jumps in the shower with a raw wound! OOOOWW!!
I hope you found this cheat sheet helpful, stay tuned for the female version soon!
