Fitness Gifts for Weightlifters | Christmas Gifts 2020

It’s been a pretty rough year for most of us. Gyms are a huge tool for de-stressing for many people, and with their doors closed for a lot of this year, gym-lovers have really struggled. So, for the weightlifters in your life, spoil them this Christmas with the gifts they’ll love. Get them back in the gym in 2021 with everything they need and more to smash their gym goals.  

We’ve got the top gifts for weightlifters this year all here, in one place, so you can get your stocking-fillers for all the weightlifters, bodybuilders and fitness fanatics you know.

 

Christmas Essentials  

1. PRO Range Sample Box

Gift yourself or your favorite gym partner quality like no other with the PRO Range Sample Box.

Within the Myprotein PRO box, you’ll find premium products like THE Coffee Boost, THE Amino Boost, THE Pre-Workout, THE EAAs, and our PRO Metal Shaker. For what’s usually over a $100, you’ll be able to purchase at a super low price.

 

2. Resistance Bands

Resistance bands have so many uses for weightlifters. They’re perfect for activating muscles with some bodyweight exercises at the beginning of your session, as well as helping improve flexibility, which is key to preventing injury.  

Resistance bands are also ideal for adding an extra level of resistance to weighted exercises in the gym, as well as helping the gym-bunny get a sweat on with home workouts.  

 

3. Supplement Storage

Do they love to meal prep but struggle for storage? With the Large and Small Klick Boxes, they can ensure they have all the food they need on hand when they need it. With removable slots to separate out snacks and supplements, plus a lid that clicks into place, it’s perfect for those packed lunches too.

 

4. Yoga Mat

Yoga is a brilliant companion to weight training, as perfecting some poses requires a lot of strength and coordination.  

But a good Yoga mat isn’t just for Yogis. For bodybuilders, regular stretching is key to flexibility and preventing injury, and a good Yoga mat is essential for stretching.  

 

5. Lifting Gloves

Lifting gloves are always in a weightlifter’s gym bag and are definitely an essential. So make sure your gym buddy is stocked with a new pair of lifting gloves this Christmas, ready to lift heavy in 2021. 

With a comfortable fit giving added wrist support, lifts won’t be limited by any loss of grip with these gloves. Any weightlifters you know would love a brand new pair of lifting gloves to show off in the gym after Christmas, these are the ones.

  

Christmas Fitness Gifts Ideal for a Home Gym  

For all the weightlifters and bodybuilders who invested in a home gym, these gifts will top off their kit. See below for the perfect gifts for their home gym. 

 

6. Liquid Chalk

Our Liquid Chalk prevents sweating from hands and feet, and allows your weightlifting friends to lift heavy, without having to worry about the bar slipping off, or losing their grip on their feet. Ensure your bodybuilding friends are able to get more reps in their sets by comfortably being able to grip for longer.

Because our lifting chalk is liquid, it’s easy to transport as well as being an essential addition to a home gym.

 

7. Wrist Wraps

Our super supportive wrist wraps offer enhanced comfort and support, ensuring reduced risk of injury and sprains. These are key for any weightlifters or bodybuilders, allowing them to lift heavy, safely and securely. They’ll definitely thank you for a new set of these.  

 

8. Large Towel

Made with super-soft cotton and a herringbone loop to hang anywhere, a good gym towel is essential for a home gym, unless you fancy ruining some of your regular towels. 

Give your weightlifter mates this great stocking filler and add to their home gym, or get them properly equipped to head back to the gym. 

 

9. Leather Dipping Belt

Some of us might struggle with one pull-up, but for your bodybuilding friends, one bodyweight pull-up or dip is far too easy.  

Our leather dipping belt can hold up to 100kg to add resistance to their pull-ups and dips whilst supporting the lower back. Progress never stops with this fitness accessory.  

 

10. Double Walled Bottle

Perfect for keeping drinks ice cold in a sweaty gym, or keeping a hot drink nice and warm in a freezing cold garage gym. Our Double Walled Bottle keeps pre-workout coffee hot, and post-workout BCAAs refreshing and cold. It’s also completely spill proof. A brilliant stocking filler this year.

Our Sports Water Bottle is perfect for grabbing in the gym. Holding 735ml, and with a screw top, this is the ideal water bottle for your weightlifting pals to carry on the go.

For those weightlifters that don’t want any excess sugar or calories when they go on that cut, our FlavDrops are ideal.
