So come on, help your friends and family (or yourself) get a head start on those New Year’s resolutions with some of our favorite things!

 

First up, for the food lover.  Written by lifelong athlete Stephanie Gaudreau, The Performance Paleo Cookbook doesn’t stop at providing all new, delectable paleo meals.  The author also provides detailed information about how and when to use protein and carbs to fuel workouts and recover. Amazon.com

 

The new Fitbit Ionic is an athlete’s dream watch.  Features have come a long way from the first generation tracker, and now include multiple workout modes for running, biking and swimming.  Yes, that’s correct, the Ionic is waterproof to 50M.  Other highlights include on-board music storage, apps, built-in payments and GPS. Amazon.com

 

For quick protein shakes and smoothies on the go, the Nutri Ninja Pro Blender offers convenience and power in a small package.  Features include an 18 oz and 24 oz travel cup with spill-proof lids and 75 recipes.  Don’t let it’s miniature size fool you, the powerful motor is capable of crushing ice and frozen fruit with ease. Amazon.com

 

Socks may not be the romantic gift, but these are no ordinary socks.  MudGear Trail Running Socks promise to wick moisture away and cushion the feet, even under extreme conditions, like, say, a mud run.  Amazon.com

 

The Perfect Pushup Elite eases strain on wrists and elbows while allowing for greater muscle extension.  Perfect for home use.  Pair with a weighted vest for intense conditioning.  Amazon.com

 

The Perfect Fitness Weighted Vest adds instant intensity to any workout.  Noteworthy features: a pocket for your phone or other device and highly reflective material for visibility out on the road.  Amazon.com

The GoPro HERO6 Black doesn’t need an introduction, and it’s pretty much a given on any adventurer’s most wanted list.  Advanced stabilization, better low-light capability and waterproof to 10m.  Awesome in a box. Amazon.com

 

This water resistant cell phone armband by Tribe Fitness has a place for a key and a reflective strap.  The screen protector still allows touchscreen functionality.  Amazon.com

 

We love the Hydro Flask 21 oz Sports Bottle for keeping water cold up to 24 hours.  Stainless steel construction means no toxic BPA, and the convenient sports cap delivers quick hydration with one hand.  Amazon.com

 


With no buckles or zippers to snag or get in the way, our favorite fitness belt by a mile is the FlipBelt.  Store your keys, phone, and cash in one of the four pockets, flip inside out, and slide on.  So comfortable you may just forget you are wearing it!  Amazon.com

 


Know someone prone to overheating during workouts?  This Cooling Towel by Alfamo will bring sweet relief.  Simply wet it, wring it and snap it, and it’s ready to use over and over.  The carrying pouch is a convenient way to carry this towel everywhere.  Amazon.com

 

Shake up a dull workout routine with the HIIT Interval Workout Game.  Play alone or with a group, no equipment necessary.  Amazon.com
