Still looking for that last minute gift for the Masters Athlete in your life? Trying to find that special something for the person who has their own gear can be tricky. Most elite mature athletes are very particular about brands and styles they use for their sport. If you’re not sure what to get your favourite fitness friend this holiday season, here are our top six present ideas:
Trigger Point Massage Balls
Help your athletic loved one recover from their workout with their own at-home massaging tool. Massage balls are not only a great gift, but can be used by the athlete or their partner. Hand held massaging balls are great for relieving the aches and pains deep in the muscle tissue. Rub on the area using moderate pressure or place them on the floor or wall to get those hard to reach places.
Injinji Toe Socks
Nothing is more uncomfortable than blisters on your feet, especially when you are in the middle of your workout. These dynamic toe socks are designed to prevent blisters. The specialized footwear removes the moisture and friction that cause blistering, so your sportster can enjoy their workouts pain free.
TRX Suspension Trainer
If your loved one does not already have this exercise equipment, then the TRX is a must have endurance athlete gift. The suspension trainer, designed by a former Navy SEAL, uses your own body weight to create a superior muscle toning workout.
Hylette Cross Training Convertible Backpack
This sophisticated, lightweight backpack has sections for everything, so the Masters Athlete can keep all their equipment and other essentials separated and organized. The tote is made of heavy duty nylon and has temperature regulating pockets to keep food and other gear at the right temperature.
Agility ladders are a great at-home device designed to help elite Masters Athletes improve their balance, coordination, and agility. Roll it out as one long length or separate the ladder into two shorter versions to create a more intense drill. These ladder trainers are great at home, on the trail, or while traveling.
Go Pro Helmet Cameras
Helmet cameras are the perfect senior athlete gift for the fitness buff who enjoys showing their view of the slopes, and trails to others. Go Pro’s can be given to any endurance athlete as a gift if wearing a helmet is part of their sport. Snowboarding, skiing, and cycling enthusiasts will enjoy filming their adventures then sharing them with friends and colleagues.
Purchasing a Christmas gift for that special Masters Athlete does not have to be stressful. There are plenty of cool gadgets on the market designed for people who love sport.
From all of us at The Sports Masters, we would like to wish all our Masters Athletes and their loved ones a very Merry Christmas and joyful New Year. Eat, drink, be merry, while revelling in the love and joy of the holiday season.
