XTreme XTraining's 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Fitness Friends

Everything from Healthy Gift Baskets to Workout Gear, we've got it all here!
This is the time of year to both give and receive gifts that will keep fitness goals on track. So while you are shopping, think of picking up a few things for yourself. I put together a little fitness gift basket for my brother each year of all kinds of healthy goodies. That way you can personalize the gift and have a better chance that something you've chosen will please them. So here's my list of some of the best Fitness Gifts this year.

Help Them Get A Grip - MAVA Leather Hand Grips 
These new leather hand grips have just enough "stick" to help control the lat bar or kettle bell. Suede leather palms with a unique wrap around wrist stays put. These are not padded gloves but the suede leather is lightly protective of your palms. High quality gloves like these will last for years. See them at

It's In The Bag - FitMark Mason's Bag
These bags come in various sizes and colors so you can choose from several models. Why I like is that many are all tricked out with a removable dry bag and inside thermal bottle & food holders. Loaded with pockets and places for all your electronics and accessories. Check them out at

For Cyclists - CatEye's Strada Slim Bicycle Computer
CatEye bicycle computers are perhaps some of the easiest to operate right out of the box. This NEW Strada Slim's profile is 24% thinner while increasing the display size. 8 funtions include: current/average/maximum speed, trip distance, total distance, elapsed time, 12/24 hours clock. Features an analog wireless system and a customizable display. Has a slim sensor that can fit on the inside of most forks and a low profile bracket. I like these computers as they have an auto start-stop feature and give you a snap-shot of your ride statistics with a click within the bracket. Find them at your local bike shop or visit online.

Green Drink Subscription
This weekly subscription is packed with organic, cleansing green drinks and healthy goodies for everyone who is serious about staying fit. If you or your gift-ee are in the NYC/NJ area like me, you can have these fresh organic juices and soups delivered by Chef V. Check out all the available deliveries and subscriptions at

Give the Gift That Keeps Giving - FEED Bags
This past summer I had the chance to meet Lauren Bush Lauren, founder of the Feed Projects. I ran the NYC Run 10 FEED 10 Race and did an additional Run My Own 10k this past weekend. If you'd like to, you may donate HERE. Otherwise you can purchase a FEED Bag as a useful gift and support the Feed Project's provision of meals to hungry children locally and all over the world. Purchase a tote and gift it to share the joy! I'm crazy about mine but had to run a race for it.  See all the current styles online at

Clean Water - Zero Water Filtration Tumbler
This is another winning gift I like for myself and gave my brother for his trips to the gym. Simply fill and drink. Changes even the most disgusting tasting water fountain water into something that tastes like it came from a pure spring. Take it anywhere to filter out pesticides, chemicals, heavy metals and bacteria. Also check out their new Travel Tumblers and other models

Now Hear This - Sol Republic Relays Ear Phones
These have become my new running companions this year and the in-ear, ear phones I reach for most when heading out the door. The sound quality is great and you can choose between 4 sets of super soft multi-sized ear tips which come with the ear phones. Relays In Ear 3 Button Headphones are very comfortable and stay in place even with vigorous exercise. See all the available colors at

Cozy Under it All
This body-warming snug wear is the perfect gift for women athletes wishing to extend their season in colder temperatures. Long-sleeves and stretchy spandex in a sheer knit are perfect for an early morning run or bike ride. Nearly invisible under clothes too. See all the available styles and colors at

Gift Baskets Chock-full of Goodness
This is where you can get creative. Get a basket and fill it with a fitness book, workout DVD, natural snacks, nuts, energy bars, supplements, whatever you wish! This makes it more personal as you are able to include little favorites of your recipient. Some of my favorite healthy gift basket inclusions are: Coco Joy Pure Coconut Milk Drinks, organic coconut oil, Viki's Granola Single Serve Packets, MitoQ Co Enzyme Q-10 Supplements, Gaia Herb Turmeric Supreme Supplements

Healthy foods, drinks and nutritional supplements are perfect for a gift basket.
