2017 Holiday Gift Guide: The Workout Warrior

by Organic Spa Magazine

A really innovative range of ideas for the fitness fiend in your life!

Make a Splash

Run, swim, bike—if you love to do these you know the difficulty of finding all-in-one pants that help your performance. Enter: The Vyve Splashpants. Made of recycled polyamide, the capris are fast-drying, stylish and even packed with UV protection.

Water Works

The Matador Hydrolite Packable Filtration Backpack, a high-tech, lightweight backpack, promises as much fresh water as you desire. The two-liter BPA- and PVC-free reservoir contains an in-line water filtration system that removes bacteria and protozoa from any lake, river or stream water.

Strong N Sexy

Iron Lilly women’s athletic wear is all about celebrating strong bodies. Pieces, faves of hardcore athletes like MMA fighter Elisabeth Jagger, are made in the USA and are universally flattering. The Alin Tank is made from modal harvested from renewable beech trees.


The high performance Crux 7 Speed Blender is the perfect gift. The seven-speed juicer (which also blends soups and nut milks) glides through frozen fruit and ice. It also has a 50-ounce pitcher for mak- ing mega batches. Eco-bonus: Creating smoothies at home cuts down on all that on-the-go plastic use.

With the Band

The TheraBand’s use for stretching and strengthening is so celebrated that the colorful bands are seen in studios everywhere from Pilates to P.T. Try the new CLX Resistance Band, which incorporates loops to provide easy gripping and no slipping.

Super Soaker

Soothe away muscle soreness with an Arya Essentials Shanti Bath Salts bath. The Himalayan salt crystals help detoxify and revitalize. Jasmine and vetiver oils aid in calming the mind.

Happy Feet

What do pregnant women and high-performance runners have in common? The need for alleviating swollen and tired legs. ATN Compression Socks are an effective—and cute-way to do that. The Cancer Awareness pair is particularly adorable.

Self Care

An all-in-one kit for head and shoulders massage by Tiger Tail may not have the same cachet as a personal massage therapist, but its ability to unwind sore shoulders and alleviate tension headaches makes it an awesome alternative.

Cool It Now

Go chic and small with a makeup case-size lunch cooler from Cool-It Caddy. The ice packs are removable, as is the strap. There’s a pocket for a phone. And—it should be noted—the entire package can be popped into a bigger bag.

To Hold

The sleek, hip, and oh-so-easy to use Yoga Hustler Sling in Leather makes gathering all your yoga gear a breeze. The sling, which can be carried a variety of ways, can hold a mat, towel and two blocks.

Process This

Fashion-fueled workout line, Live The Process, features
chic pieces like the signature Geometric Legging—created from recycled fabric made from bottles. Plus, the collection is hand-sewn with textiles sourced in the U.S.

Back on Trend

The Ella Backpack by Boutique Mexico is adorable, on-
trend and eco-responsible. Handcrafted in the traditions of Chiapas weavers, the palm tote with double leather straps is deep enough for all your gear.

Stocking Stuffers

Hair Help to Go

Pop this old-school comb in your bag (gym or work) for taming fly-aways on the go. Made in the USA of pre-consumer recycled plastic, the credit-card size Midnight Floral Go- Comb is the perfect stocking stuffer.

Level Up

Vitamins can help recovery and increase immunity response. Among the latest offerings are those from Vous Vitamin, a collection designed by a Chicago-based doctor duo.
For athletes, the Power Up pack is perfect. Consider the Recovery Act, too—it’s a (holiday) hangover cure.

Out, Out

Hex Performance On Demand + Spray & Go is just the little stocking goodie to get gear squeaky clean. The green formula is designed to remove odors, sweat, bacteria and the anionic residue other detergents leave behind. It also supports
the moisture-wicking systems found in most athletic wear.
