From moisture-wicking clothes to recovery tools, shop these gift ideas for the fitness enthusiast in your life.
The right gear can make a workout more enjoyable. Nike has a range of fitness gifts—from moisture-wicking clothes to tech accessories to gym essentials—to help the fitness lover in your life get the most out of their workout.
Check out these essential gifts for fitness lovers, whatever their workout of choice is.
Nike Gym Bag
A duffel bag is essential for fitness enthusiasts to pack all their workout essentials. Nike gym bags range in size from 25 litres—big enough for a change of clothes and a pair of shoes—to more than 95 litres, with space for shoes, clothes, toiletries and a basketball.
Nike training duffels are packed with features like a separate shoe compartment and elastic bungees for a yoga mat, making it easy to carry all the necessities.
Nike Workout Mat
The Nike Yoga Mastery Mat is grippy and lightweight. While it is designed for yoga, it's equally useful for home workouts, core training and Pilates mat classes. At 5 millimetres thick, the mat provides a balance of cushioning and firmness for a grounded sensation.
Made from a blend of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and natural rubber, this yoga mat has anti-odour properties and feels cool to the touch even as an athlete heats up.
Nike Moisture-Wicking Tops and T-Shirts
Whether you're shopping for an avid trail runner or powerlifter, technical clothing that can help keep athletes cool and dry is a must. Nike Dri-FIT tops, T-shirts and tanks are made from fabric that wicks moisture away from the skin so it can evaporate quickly. Find T-shirts with a classic Nike Swoosh or cropped tanks with mesh panels for extra breathability.
Nike Bike Shorts
Bike shorts are ideal for all workouts from CrossFit to yoga. The tight fit encourages confident movement, while moisture-wicking Dri-FIT material keeps athletes cool. Nike bike shorts come in high-waisted and mid-rise options and inseam lengths ranging from 8 to 18 centimetres (approx.).
Nike Water Bottle
Staying hydrated is one of the most essential parts of working out. BPA-free water bottles from Nike offer easy drinking with built-in straws and push-pull squeeze tops—no need to unscrew the cap. Durable plastic doesn't shatter on impact and an ergonomic design feels natural in-hand.
Apple Watch Nike and Accessories
An Apple Watch Nike SE is one of the ultimate accessories for any fitness lover. The integrated Nike Run Club App tracks runs or hikes, and a Twilight Mode provides enhanced visibility. The watch is tough enough for any workout, as the screen is crack, dust and water resistant.
If the fitness enthusiast on your list already has an Apple Watch, Nike watch bands are compatible with any Series 3 model or newer. These durable watch bands are soft on skin and perforated for maximum breathability.
Rest is crucial to any fitness routine and there are an array of Nike products that can facilitate muscle recovery. The Nike foam roller has a textured exterior that helps ease tight muscles and work out trigger points. At 33 centimetres long (approx.), it is lightweight and portable. And the Nike roller bar and recovery ball can target smaller muscle groups.
Metcon Series Shoes
For a versatile pair of shoes, look to the Nike Metcon series. These training shoes have a breathable mesh upper and a flat, durable sole designed for stability while weightlifting. They are also cushioned and responsive with Nike React foam for short sprints or cardio intervals. A built-in tab locks down the laces to keep them out of the way when the workout gets tough.
